Sunday confessional: Aviva teaches me that you are always learning with markets

By Chris Bailey of Financial Orbit | Sunday 24 November 2019

Disclosure: I own shares in one or more of the stocks mentioned. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

If you want to periodically (or even frequently) look like a fool...then I would heartily suggest you engage with the financial markets.  As I have discussed on these pages before, a really good batting record is getting seven out of ten calls correct...with the other three losers being curtailed before they get anywhere near joining the fifty percent or worse down club.  Anyone who claims a record better than this should either be on the front page of Businessweek or is the next Bernie Madoff.
