In the news biz they say, "If it bleeds, it leads." People are attracted to bad news, especially when it's happened to others. Good news, on the other hand, is boring, and it doesn't sell newspapers. But to be a good investor, you've got to look for the good news, even learn to anticipate the good news, as optimists do. That's because stocks go up more on the anticipation of progress than on the news of progress.
