In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Phil Town discusses possible strategies you can use after taking losses on your investments.

The efficient-market hypothesis, a common and well-held principle in finance, assumes that asset prices reflect all available information, meaning that price drops in concert with a fall in value. In Town's experience, this is not to be believed. In his words, the value of a stock is not equal to its dollar value. 

Even investing maestro Warren Buffet says that you should not buy a company unless you're comfortable with it going down 50 percent. In fact, it can actually help if a target stock's price falls, because the true value of the company does not change with its pricetag.
