"The line separating investment and speculation, which is never brightand clear, becomes blurred still further when most market participantshave recently enjoyed triumphs.

But they nevertheless hate to miss a single minute of what is one helluva party. Therefore, the giddy participants all plan to leave just seconds before midnight. There's a problem, though: They are dancing in a room in which the clocks have no hands."
