No. of Recommendations: 6
Probably not the dumbest thing I'll ever do, since I have plenty of life left, but just a while back I sold my Walmart on 'someone's' recommendation. There was this scandal in Mexico.... So all of a sudden it went from Buy to Sell.

Of course, a huge company like WMT isn't going to collapse on a little political thing, and here it is, one month later, selling for 10 points higher than I sold it.

You'd think a Fool would have thought it out a bit more carefully.
