I hope you have done better than that.

Actually, I haven't -- each of my forays into stocks (Despite researching) has been a disappointment.

Some people have "the stuff" to research stocks. Some (including me) don't.

Was it Ralph Waldo Emerson who said "Know thyself."?

It's my opinion that most people are incapable of knowing how they'll do at stock investing, and the less capable you are, the worse you are at predicting.
