    the risk of loss is greater with the ASX stock , but the gains are there to help compensate , if you are prudent .

    this is an equation of risk v. reward

    ( i do not hold ASX nor STW but do hold VAS )

    i have heard of them but never use them , i decide if i want to keep ( some of ) them 'forever 'before buying in .

    i have strategies i MAY use if the price moves outside expectations ( 'average down ', profit-take , etc. )

    i do not expect a share to behave predictably just because i have bought some
