Are you really 100% sure that the price will fall to between 5-6 euro within a short time from now? Can anybody really say with absolute certainty what the price will be six months or one year from now? If we all knew with certainty what the price of any given stock will be at a certain time in the future, then this business will be very easy and we all will be very rich. I understand your fears but any kind of investment involves risk and risks are rewarded. If you are not bold enough to take the risk, then don't go into the business. For those who decide to take the risk, they will be rewarded. No venture, no success!
Waterland private equity fund (WPEF) and five other private investors have decided to invest millions in Euro in Fagron--including the director himself, Hans Stols. I would assume that the director of a company knows very well the condition of the company he is leading. So, for him to put his own money on the table to save the company which was not founded by him, suggests to me that the future of Fagron could not be as gloomy as you are suggesting. I may be proven wrong in the future but I find it difficult to agree with you right now. You are talking about "USA onderzoekjes" My question for you is this: Are the private investors who are injecting their capital into this company not aware of the "USA onderzoekjes"? What do you know that they do not know? Is it not possible that in the end, nothing may come out the "USA onderzoekjes"? Is not possible that the potential damage that may result from the "USA onderzoekjes" is now already reflected in the current Fagron share price? No company is absolutely free from the potential for negative news. So, as an investor, if you are looking for a company that has no risk at all, then you might as well not invest in anything at all. Not investing at all is, in itself, also a risk. If you decide to keep your money under your pillow, there is risk that a burglar may steal your money one day or your house may one day be on fire. The point is, there is risk in almost everything you do to make money. So, you have to decide what you want. If you cannot take the risk, then stay away! On the topic of business and investment in general, the notable investor, Warren Buffett, once said: “Be Fearful When Others Are Greedy and Greedy When Others Are Fearful” Meditate on this quote. Maybe you are now fearful about Fagron. But there are people who are greedy for Fagron. That is the nature of business and human baviour. There must always be people on both sides to keep the wheel of business rolling.
