"DOG" stock is that favorite stock you have that you just KNOW is going to end up being the big winner. So you wait. And you wait. The value drops a little, no worries. You wait on it. Then it drops a bit more. It's really dogging it now, no upward trend...just steadily falling a little at a time. So you wait.
Because such an investor can't find it within himself to put his dog out of its misery. I mean, it's not THAT bad. At that point, you lose objectivity.
Schaub is a stock that is dogging it. It might bounce back two points, but it will drop 3 next week. So on and so forth.
Gary is loyal. Gary doesn't like taking the dog stocks to the NFL vet.
Well, no. That's pretty much wrong.
It's more like we have a decent stock. If you can find a better one then lets do it. The reality is, however, that it isn't easy to find a better one.
The best best is to draft a player with potential and hope it pans out.
