Investing In the Stock Market

If you are an ordinary citizen, investing in the stock market is just plain stupid. Why?

The one exception I would make is if you invest in a company whose product you believe in where you have personally known the principals for a long time and you believe, based on personal knowledge, the company will succeed. You are investing partly for return and partly to support the company’s goals. You are leveraging your inside knowledge.
