Where do good stocks come from? From good companies!

Good companies issue good stocks!
There’s a strong relationship between good companies and their stocks. That’s why some of the most successful investors rely almost exclusively on picking good companies for investment (ref. 1). Conversely, companies on the verge of bankruptcy are very risky investments. Some investors don’t understand this. Case in point was the declaration of bankruptcy by Lehman Brothers. After Lehman declared bankruptcy and its stock was delisted from the New York Stock Exchange, some investors continued to trade Lehman’s stock in the over-the-counter market at pennies per share; it was a big loss for them.
