Investment Analysis of Adventure Comics #201 to 220. Strong Issues Here!

Investment Analysis of Adventure Comics #201 to 220Nice Key Issues in here! These seem to be very collectible at 9.4 and above. I wonder when collectible desire takes a back seat to rarity? These issues inspire that question. How do we test that question?The first table presents the Bias Score (B Score) for all the issues. Bias scores show which issues are being bought by the Insiders (Pros) vs. the Outsiders (Fans Less Serious).

Reasons to Sell a Comic and Comparing the Collector vs. Investor?

Image
Reasons to Sell a ComicConsider this a Positon Paper. I have set out extremes of 100% collectors vs 100% investors. I expect it's a normal distribution of people from the extremes inwards. This figure shows my journey. 





A)  Avoid the gamble and focus on a plan
“The reason why many have trouble selling is rooted in an innate human tendency to be greedy. As greed and emotion overcame rational judgment, sound investment principles were replaced by casino-like tendencies.” *
* http://www.investopedia.com/articles/stocks/10/when-to-sell-stocks.asp By Sham Gad Prospect Theory ** explains some of this tendency.
