The high cost of bad buy/sell decisions
- April 22nd, 2012
Not sure why but I don’t often post infographics on Abnormal Returns. However this infographic, hat tip Barry Ritholtz, on the high costs of bad buy/sell decisions parallels a number of points we make in our new book Abnormal Returns: Winning Strategies from the Frontlines of the Investment Blogosphere. If the problem were the result of one simple problem, people could easily fix their behaviors, but unfortunately we are filled with biases and behaviors that make investing a difficult task.
