Why does it happen?
I know the market is bear-ish, but if one is smart enough to do some research, find a company with a blue-sky forecast that pays dividends as well, and currently trades at a cheap P/E, why wouldn't an investor buy into it?
Why does such a stock keep retreating?
Is the market dominated by get in/get out traders to the detriment of value investors?
I won't name stocks in case of the impression that I am trying to ramp them, but fair dinkum. Are people really that panic-stricken that they cannot see the value in companies that will ultimately reward them if it wasn't for the short-term thinkers?
