I recently received an nominal deposit from an investor wishing to ‘lock his stock’ and expecting a quick return on his investment. It was obvious that this little piggy didn’t know how to play the market.
I accepted his IPO graciously but reprimanded him for his short sightedness; advising him that expensive initiatives pay off down the road for patient investors. But how patient could this piggy be?
Investment in this area needs to be long term. The rule is ‘no pain no gain.’
