"Investors frequently forget that stock-market predictions aren't like, say, weather predictions, because in the case of the stock market the predictions actually change the weather. If everyone on Wall Street already likes a stock, they probably already own it. And if that's the case, they've probably already driven up the price higher than it should be.
