If they can invest in a good company without leaning towards a weak company, then they can expect good results. ‘ On the other hand, another DSE director, who did not want to be named, said, “Opportunists are flocking to the upward market.” At this time many people want to achieve their interests. The word should be kept in the minds of investors. Because whoever has the capital, it is his responsibility to keep it safe. ‘

Before investing, they have to decide whether the company they are investing in is risk free or not. If the decision is wrong, they will have to pay the price. ‘
