The greatest risk anyone can take is to assume they have found the Holy Grail of investing-low risk great reward.


I appreciate the platitudes, but please quantify the risk when I buy an asset deeply discounted and I have hardly any money in the deal.

If you found an undervalued stock and could buy it on margin, wouldn't you do so--the proverbial 100-bagger? I sure would.

I wouldn't pay full sticker price for real estate in a highly leveraged way. That would be dumb.
