In response to Joebreidey's comment:


Half the world waits until a stock is at its peak before they buy.  Some people look for stocks that had a rough stretch and got oversold.

Who do you think goes home with all the money?


Try this experiment.  Find 5 or 6 stocks that have traded at historic lows to close out last year.  Buy those stocks and wait 12 months. 


You will be broke.

When a stock hits historic lows - it is almost always a bad investment =- beccause that historic low goes lower. 

The Sox have picked up 5 or 6 historic-low stocks this off season.  No need to guess how that will turn out.

An investor would be better served putting his money into TWO solid stocks than 6 speculative, gasping, collapsing stocks.




Your positivity is overwhelming sometimes.
