Once upon a time in a village a man appeared who announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 .. 
The villagers knew that the jungle held countless monkeys, easily caught ..
As the supply diminished, they become difficult to catch, and villagers returned to their farms. The man announced that he would pay $20 .. The villagers renewed their efforts and caught almost the rest ..
The supply quickly diminished, but before they returned to their farms the man increased his offer to $40 each ..
Monkeys became so rare that it was difficult to even see a monkey let alone catch it ..
! The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $100 ..
However, since he had to go to the city on some other business his assistant would now buy for the man .. The man departed ..
Then the assistant told the villagers,
<< Look at all these monkeys the man has in that big cage >> .. 
<< I will sell them to you at $50 each >> ..
<< When the man comes back you can sell the monkey’s back to him for $100 >> ..
The villagers queued up with all their saving to buy the monkeys ..
The assistant took their money ..
The villagers never saw either the man or his assistant again ..
This is exactly how the HNWI s and the broker houses are fooling the retail investors .. Think of it .. Sorry .. No offense ..

Very good note, I can see some Company's where PBT is coming down year on year suddenly goes up.
Ex. HVA, Muller,  where the PBT is going down, also Loans and interest cost are increasing suddenly goes up in share price.  Be careful when you invest on these type of shares as of now.

@Steve Jansen | Hey that s an excellent point. Those who gamble with the leverage, are the PLCs do not support its value appreciations on the board. In other word, it is pushing to dump on the majority. Thanks for sharing ..
