There is a disconnect, or more precisely, a disaggregation, in our current markets between the companies in our regulatory framework and the stocks that purport to represent them.
We don’t buy stock to invest in the company anymore – often we don’t even understanding what the companies we buy actually do or make. Now we buy stocks because of the value they represent. We buy analysts’ picks because the prices will go up – or down if we’re hedging our bets.
What stock have you purchased recently solely because you love the company and think of it as a good investment?
