Volatile low images


Some stocks are temporarily ignored, ill-loved, even hated. 

These outcasts have tiny, but volatile images, specially in depressed or even
temperate periods.
Here is an indicative table.


Depressive market

(mkt average img. = 0,6)

0,2 to 0,4

Neutral market

(mkt average img. = 1)

0,3 (0,5) 0,7

Buoyant market

(mkt average img. = 1,7)

0,7 to 1,2

pi-egg.gif Very cyclical or erratic firms are roller coasters.

If a firm's results are zigzagging, its stock's image tends to be low and

or pre-emerging stocks.

Some started with some sales, even profits, but not necessarily recurrent.

Others have only projects. Comes to mind such- and- such big canal or
tunnel, or new sector: biotechnology, new media….

OK to bet on innovation. But not to pay a lofty image to buy a tiny EEV. Such
stocks are often launched on the market at stratospheric prices (see above)
in euphoric periods when investors flock around anything with a new and
flashy look.

Imagine the fall into Hell when the market sentiment turns around!
