Even the best....

August 10th, 2010 at 06:14 am

According to this

Text is article and Link is http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6781YC20100809
article, Goldman has suffered a 10 day trading loss. This, after last quarter's shockingly perfect trading, raking in as much as $25 per day.

Er, now that I think about it, I'm not sure why I'm blogging this. I doubt anyone here would even be interested in a news tidbit like this. Big Grin

But a lot of people DO guy Goldman stocks simply because of how good they are, and yet, it still pays to diversify because news articles like this reminds all of us that even the best... can't be perfect.
