A friend of mine sent me a link to some online stock tips. Looking to invest in stocks for the first time, she did some googling. And she was excited to show me what she found — suggestions for stocks in a growing industry she was especially interested in.
The sites she found gave thorough analysis of the industry growth she could expect. And they explained why a few particular stocks had the best chance of doing well. It all looked very sound and reasonable. In fact, the information was basically solid. And the stocks did seem to have good fundamentals that should help them do well. At least, on paper.
