Investor or speculator?

Earlier this week we posted an article from the CFA Institute (with permission of course, we have a syndication agreement as mentioned a few months ago) by Robert Hagstrom on the question of What Is the Difference between Investing and Speculation? 19 readers gave responses.

Readers can see and feel free to submit their answers if they wish.
