How many times have you fell victim to other people’s stock advice? “This stock is guaranteed to go up!” Usually, the advice or “stock tip” comes from a friend or associate. It may even come from your own investment advisor.

Our emotions get us thinking. You don’t want to lose out on the potential gains. Irrationally, without blinking an eye, you invest. Most of the time the end result is much worse than you expected. Surprisingly, you continue to repeat this same mistake over and over again.
