Go with what's HOT...not with what's not"
When ya think about it there is a short downside risk to going with what's hot.
Back when I used to play with stocks I stopped selling short for just that reason. Your gains are limited when selling a stock short .....but going long on a stock has unlimited potential.
If you go with what's hot you will be right about 50% of the time as usual ...... but the up side is that its not as expensive to play that way and you might stay lucky for a looooooong time !
Play what's hot ..... you might stay lucky a long time! If your not.... at least it's over quick." LOL
It's the right way that's for sure. I don't always do it but it's the smart play in the long run. Players would rather be right than win sometimes...LOL
