Behavioral finance

A theory stating that there are important psychological and behavioral variables involved in investing in the stock 

Market

 that provide opportunities for smart investors to 

Profit

. For example, when a certain stock or sector becomes "hot" and prices increase substantially without a change in the company’s fundamentals, 

Behavioral finance

 theorists would attribute this to mass psychology. They therefore might 

Short

 the stock in the 

Long

 term, believing that eventually the psychological 

Bubble

 will burst and they will 

Profit
