ExampleAn investor is considering buying a stock but she is worried about an upcoming election. There are two candidates running A and B. If A wins she will be happy and will buy the stock. If B wins she will be disappointed but would still like to own the stock. In such a scenario, the uncertainty of the election is obscuring the fact that the investor would like to purchase the stock, either way the election turns out.
