A fable of Monkey that explains, Why people lose money in stock market.
Stock market is destined to work same way, still people don’t learn and lose money.
Read it, enjoy it and learn something from it.
Once upon a time in a village a man appeared who announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for Rs. 10. The villagers seeing that there were many monkeys went out in the forest and started catching them. The man bought thousands at 10 and as supply started to diminish and villagers started to stop their effort he announced that now he would buy at 20 rupees.
This improved the efforts of the villagers and they started catching moneys again. Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer rate increased to 25 and the supply of monkeys became so that it was an effort to even see a monkey let alone catch it.
The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at 50! However, since he had to go to the city on some business his assistant would now buy on behalf of the man.
In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers, “Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at 35 and when the man comes back you can sell it to him for 50.”
The villagers squeezed up with all their savings and bought all the monkeys even though villagers were not having any use for the monkeys.
Then they never saw the man nor his assistant, only monkeys everywhere!
Welcome to the Stock Market!
Moral of the story:
Markets always make new highs and increasing number of people around you discuss about stock market. But fear starts when even pan ka gale wala start discussing stocks.
In the stock markets, there are good companies that are overpriced and there are worthless companies (monkeys) that are overpriced. Don’t be fool to pay absurd prices for garbage stocks because you think that a greater fool will appear in the future, make sure that at least you don’t buy a monkey for losing money in stock market. Don’t buy such companies that don’t have strong fundamentals behind it that could take it on other highs on market recovery.
Invest in good fundamental stocks on lower valuations (value pick stocks) or buy even on higher side good quality multibagger stocks.
