I believe no one person knows the answer to your question. A few possibilities? People that have no education on the subject, no understanding of what stock is, no understanding of what makes a successful business, many purveyors of get rich quick schemes, and high speed trading that sucks them in and spits them out. Couple that with the ease of buying and selling through a broker account and a computer and you have a very high possibility of a succor's holiday. There is a famous quote by a cowboy named Will Rogers that goes something like this. "There is a succor born every minute, and two to take him."
