Initially, “quant” referred to a way of doing finance, not a person. Why...

If experts thought they knew anything about individual investors, it was this: their emotions lead them to sell winning stocks too soon and hold on to losers too long.
But new research casts doubt on this widely held theory that individual investors' decisions are driven mainly by their feelings toward losses and gains.
