It's a numbers game. The Fool does not pick more winners than you or I could. But when you buy for the long term, you will generally get a better return because, remember, you don't need more winners than losers. The most you can lose on a stock is 100%, but your upside is not capped. So when the fool hits it big with a Chipoitle or Netflix or UnderArmour, it drives total return through the roof. The average trader dumps these stocks way too early, thus not capitalizing on the multi-bagger growth.
What's up... not this stock! I am pretty deeeep into losses myself, I bought this stock for the same reason you bought this stock. I wish I stuck with my investment plan instead! Really should believe in myself instead of the fools… done pretty well without them. For the time being I hope TCS (Kip Tindell) is watching the message board for investors who cannot contain their dissatisfaction with plummeting daily stocks prices. This will be my last message in this board… I am so disappointed. I am so tired of excuses from the container store, my worst investment ever!!! Happy and successful investing.
