When it comes to regrettable decisions, investing while drunk would be hard to top. Nevertheless, one-third of investors have done just that, according to a recent MagnifyMoney survey.

Emotions can play a role in major financial decisions such as buying a house or paying for college, but more-calculated, logical decisions not based on fleeting feelings might be a better investment strategy. MagnifyMoney researchers surveyed more than 1,100 investors to learn if they let emotions influence their portfolios.
