there's an evident error in the sentence.
You probably meant "idiots" not "investors".
i believe investors have some people working for them who is qualified
enough to call this bullshit!

Hopes don't have to be realistic.

Some people invest in scams, then get out before the lies are exposed,
making large profits. Are they idiots?

If they do it knowingly, I would call that highly unethical.
In fact, that kind of behavior makes me puke. It is probably the reason why
the world has turned in such a mess these last 8 years.

I agree, but money is often made from scams by honest investors. An
example that is well known here in Canada involves a company called
Bre-X, which, some years ago, claimed to have discovered a huge gold
deposit in Indonesia. The claims were authenticated with the results
of analyses and so on. The company's shares soared sky high, and a lot
of people made a lot of money by trading in them, perfectly honestly.
But in the end it turned out that the whole thing was a fraud. Someone
had added gold to samples of rock that were being sent for analysis.
The man who probably did it jumped out of a helicopter and is presumed
to have been killed, although his body was never found. The investors
who were holding he shares when the fraud was revealed lost a lot of
money, but they were the unlucky ones. Plenty of others were lucky.

There are almost certainly people who would, and maybe have, invested
in this perpetual-motion scam because they think it may be legitimate
and, if so, is likely to be very profitable. If shares are being
traded, people may be making money from it, honestly. But, like Bre-X,
the whole thing will eventually come crashing down.

On the other hand, there /are/ reputable outfits with solid R&D groups
who're working to push the state of the art - whose investors should do
well.

When your post appeared I'd just finished looking around the Bosch Group
web site (and a handful of others) and I saw what might be good solid
intermediate- and long-term investment opportunities without so much
speculative risk...

...if I only had a cash surplus to invest. :(
