Hitting it big in the stock market has never been easy. It is even more difficult today when investors and potential investors are inundated by information from a wide range of media outlets. A good amount of this information is unreliable or plain wrong. Some of this comes from a media outlet’s need to make money to continue its existence. Many stories will feature things like, “The Top Three Hot Stock Picks.” In reality, some of those hot picks may not pan out, but catchy stories like that will bring in viewers or readers. There is evidence that the hit rate for these stocks is sometimes less than if an investor picks a stock at random. It is also risky to predict the future, as a company doing well today might wind up in a negative light in tomorrow’s news.
