The Biggest Investing Danger in 2010



December 22, 2009 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: JPM , GS , BRK-B

Here's my take on the biggest investing danger in 2010 ('biggest' may be an overstatement, there are any number to choose from -- sovereign debt crisis, commerical real estate, double-dip recession, Chinese banking crisis, early rate hike, etc. -- and I could only choose one.)

On another note, for those who are interested in following/ commenting on my analysis on a different platform, I can now be found on Twitter.

There never is a "danger" when it comes to INVESTING only to trading. Buffett made a fortune from investing.  Others made fortunes from trading.  One takes research another takes luck. Choose research and patience and time will be your ally.

As you tell from the following excerpt from my contribution to the roundtable, I largely agree with you:

 Armed with a long-term value orientation, one can safely ignore the potential ripple effect on stock prices -- or better yet, seek to profit from it -- but it could be a landmine for weaker hands, including leveraged or momentum investors. Similarly, speculators caught holding weak financials such as Fannie Mae(NYSE: FNM) or AIG (NYSE: AIG) could pay a heavy price.
