NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- There's an old saying: "Jack of all trades, master of none." This describes a person who's capable at several things but not great at any of them. While this quality may get you by at your place of employment, in the stock market it gets you broke pretty fast.
In part one of this series we discussed the importance of communication between companies and shareholders. I argued that it's the duty of every management team to portray an aura of honesty and integrity while also sending a clear and understandable message to help investors establish realistic expectations.
In part two, we dug a little deeper to help you understand who and what you are buying. At the same time, we agreed that investors have a responsibility to research disclosure documents so that she/he will know for themselves how well the company is doing. By and large, this is where so many investors consistently struggle.
