Ask Dave

Gambling Vs. Investing

Dave loves this question - how is investing in the stock market different from gambling?

QUESTION: Listener asks how putting money in the stock market is any different from gambling. Dave thinks this is a great question.

ANSWER: If the activity exists solely to create a wagering opportunity, it is gambling. Investing without a sure outcome, is a far cry from gambling … spiritually, emotionally and financially.
