Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $5 each.
The villagers seeing that there were not many monkeys around, went out to the forest, and started catching them. The man bought hundreds at $5 and as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort. He further announced that he would now buy at $10 each. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again.
Soon the supply diminished even further and villagers started going back to their farms. The offer increased to $20 each and the supply of monkeys became so few that it was an effort to even see a monkey, let alone catch one!
The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would buy on behalf of him.
In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers. "Look at all these monkeys in these big cages that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at $35 and when the man returns from the city, you can sell them to him for $50 each."
The villagers rounded up all their savings and bought all the monkeys. Then they never saw the man or his assistant again. They had only monkeys everywhere!
This is a perspective on how many companies operate in the stock market!
