Making Big Money 39 Gift

Making Big Money in Small Stocks


Bill's primary reason for writing Making BIG Money in Small Stocks is to help you become the best investor you can be. Statistics indicate that 70 percent of all investors lose money in the stock market. Why? Most investors buy poor quality stocks at too high a price. They either get greedy and don’t take their profit, or ignore signals that indicate the price may go down. Then they end up selling their stocks for a loss.
