...Investors tend strongly to fall into one of two camps. 

Most primarily see publicly traded stocks, for example, as something akin to baseball trading cards. They are focused on price, not the underlying economics. ... If you have to sell in a hurry, it is impossible to deny that you are in the hands of others.
