All too often, investors do not have an underlying philosophy about investing.  This can lead the investor astray at precisely the wrong time.  For example, during the tech stock bubble, many investors loaded up on tech stocks as returns skyrocketed.  When the bubble burst, they sustained heavy losses.  If those investors had maintained and followed a policy of proper diversification, their losses could have been much lower.
