4 Critical Errors You Must Avoid

Abstract:
Mistake No. 3: Buying the hype

China is growing wildly and presents incredible opportunities. Satellite radio is the next mass communications medium. The Internet revolution will seem like a blip compared with what's going to happen with nanotechnology, and Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ) is one of the top companies as measured by nanotechnology R&D expenditures and patents. With oil so high, the need for hybrid cars becomes even more pronounced.

All that's true, but that doesn't mean you can buy Capstone Turbine (Nasdaq: CPST) because its microturbines can enhance the performance of hybrid vehicles and expect to make a fortune. Juniper Networks (Nasdaq: JNPR) was a manufacturer of Internet technology at a time when the world's communications shifted from analog to digital. Yet investors who bought at the highs lost most of their money.
