Beware Low Priced Stocks
There is something about a stock that trades in the single digits that gets the speculative juices flowing. I know this first hand since I have been guilty of doing this in the past.

Unfortunately, reality plays out differently a vast majority of the time. You don’t hear too many stories about the guy who bought that $4 stock and watched it fall to $0 as it was discovered to be a fraud or went belly up.
