There are numerous ways investors can lose their hard-earned money in the stock market.
- performance chasing
- buying yield traps whose dividends are unsustainable and likely to be cut, possibly several times
- grossly overpaying for quality companies to the extent that even if they grow as expected you might see negative returns for years or even decades
- ignoring deteriorating fundamentals (thesis breaks about 20% of the time even if you perform proper due diligence)
But of all the potential mistakes that stand in the way of achieving your financial goals, one, in particular, is most likely to cost you a fortune in 2020.
