In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Phil Town explains a few of the most significant risks and rewards of investing. 

It can be risky to invest in companies without sufficient research or businesses that lack a proven track record, and you probably shouldn't trust companies with unreliable leadership. 

Town recommends practicing discernment with the efficient market theory and always keeping an eye out for stocks that are price wildly below their value. 

In the words of star investor Ben Graham: In the short-run, the stock market is a voting machine in the short term, but in the long-run, it's a weighing machine. This means that underpriced stocks today will often produce rewards later on.
