Tweeter (TWTRQ) Isn’t Twitter and the (Ir)rational Market

We’re smart, we’re rational, we do our research, we can’t be fooled. So we tell ourselves. But when it gets to be time to make a quick buck, everything goes out the window.

Today, Tweeter Home Entertainment Group Inc.’s, the bankrupt A/V chain trading under TWTRQ , stock went crazy before trading was halted. Seems like in the rush to get in on the Twitter IPO, some people got a little confused.

What should you do when a “sure thing” crosses your desk? Put it aside and look into it tomorrow morning. If it’s real and legitimate, the opportunity will still be there tomorrow. Plus, the extra eight hours of sleep will ensure you notice that extraneous “Q” which can make all the difference in the world.
