What should investors do?

Knowledge and analysis are the two important tools that help you make the right decision. So, study the company's financial reports when making your investment decision. If you are investing for a short-term period, there might be volatility in stock prices. In such cases, you should monitor the stock prices daily to take the buy or sell call.

On the other hand, short-term volatility will not be a major concern for long-term investors. You can hold onto your investment over the long run and see returns as the company grows, and so does its stock.

So, assess your investment horizon and risk appetite and then make an informed choice.
