Longest, still holding JNJ+MAIN, 5 years liao. Started investing in 2012.
Shortest is 1 day, can't remember exactly how long. Accidentally buy wrong counter and sold for negligible profit. Some US Food stock, forgot the name.

Longest holding period: Suntec REIT over 8 years (bought at $1.26)

Shortest holding period: DBS over 2-3 months (during O&G crisis last year)

I think in the context of stock trading, shortest is not meaningful especially if you had ever 'contra' before.

My longest holding is Singel. Holding since its IPO in 1993.

Old time, scanner and camera phone non-existence. Even if got pic to show, stocks could have been sold or counters could have disappeared from market. With cdp, no more share certicates to show.

Not appropriately rewarded by holding Singtel since 1993

Would have been much better off holding any of the 3 banks for that long.

yes, sinktel didn't give very good returns since listing in 1993

dividends were miserable in the first 10-15 years along with little capital appreciation
