    A man calls his broker, who tells him that he’s got a hot new stock pick.
    “Buy it, buy it,” the man says.
    The next day he calls the broker for an update – the stock is up 5%
    “Buy it, buy it,” the man says.
    The next day he calls the broker again, and the stock is up another 5%.
    “Buy some more, buy some more,” the man says.
    He calls the broker again the next day, who tells him the stock is up 10%.
    “Sell it, sell it,” the man says.
    The broker says: “To who?”
