Investing in common stocks really requires two qualities: a good grasp of fundamentals and PATIENCE. If the numbers and facts are sound, you will invest wisely 70-80% of the time. That's about as good as it gets! So do your homework, buy your shares, and be patient!! WHC is a company whose fundamentals are very strong and whose market prospects are bright. I'd say there's a 70-80% chance that it will make a very significant upward move within the next six months. Our ability to predict the movements of a stock within the short term are almost nill, except in very rare or special cases. If we find that we are unable to summon up the patience to wait out an excellent stock, perhaps we should invest in bonds!! But if we would really like to make some serious money, we're in the best arena there is!
