QOTD: Risk

You want to take risk when others are fleeing from it, not when they’re competing with you to do so.

…But it’s precisely when people can’t see what it is that could make things turn down that risk is highest, since they tend not to price in risks they can’t see.  With the negative catalyst so elusive and the return on cash at punitive levels, people worry more about being underinvested or bearing too little risk (and thus earning too low a return in good markets) than they do about losing money.  Howard Marks
