It's Good to Know: The Top 10 Reasons People Give for Holding on to Their Stocks Too Long

With apologies to Dave Letterman ...

10. "The food at the annual shareholders' meeting is to die for."
9. "I know I've said this before ... but the price of this stock has nowhere to go but up."
8. "Who says I'm not capable of making a long-term commitment?"
7. "My golf buddy got out years ago. If I sell now, it'll prove he was right."
6. "My original analysis of the company was spot on, damn it! The market is wrong."
5. "I have this 1988 Forbes article saying this company could be the next Microsoft."
4. "I'm feeling lucky today."
3. "I'm a lazy son-of-a-gun."
2. "If I sell now, I just know the stock will catch fire tomorrow."

And [drum roll] ...

1. "I don't know what the big problem is. I haven't lost a penny on this stock."

Speaking of "Brokers"......

Two women were walking through the woods when a frog called out to them and said: "Help me, ladies! I am a stockbroker who, through an evil witch's curse, has been transformed into a frog. If one of you will kiss me, I'll be returned to my former state!"
One woman took out her purse, grabbed the frog, and stuffed it inside her handbag. The other woman, aghast, screamed, "Didn't you hear him? If you kiss him, he'll turn into a stockbroker!"

The second woman replied, "Sure, but these days a talking frog is worth more than a stockbroker!" LOL.....
