Why do you make money.
Most of us don't make money investing on our own. Why? It is because we are too emotional. I have lost 400 bucks on a 2k investment in RIMM in just two days because I believed RIMM will bite into marketshare of the GIANTS which is awsome even at 1%.. My fault as an investor is I acted on my emotion at the moment. I bought at the all 52wk hign. Lost 20% and now have to be smarter. Which as mathametical equations, being human and not a computer, is never going to happen. I GOT RIMMED.
Investing in RIMM is great when the new CEO got the investors iterested by a 100%, it is a good buy. Like YAHOO the CEO has 6 months to a year to turn the company around, beyond that it is a loosing enterprise. That is what AWSOME CEO is IS.
ALL OF US invest to make our money work for us and not the other way around. Still, 99% of us NEED a QUICK buck on the investment. This is inhereintely the loss we reaize in months while the"high net worth" will always have something subtential, versus us, to fall bacj on to take "BREATH"
in the losses.
Only way we can all makew money is by learning from our mistakes. HAVE YOU LEARNED?
