Keep INVESTING Simple and Safe (KISS)
****Investment Philosophy, Strategy and various Valuation Methods****
The same forces that bring risk into investing in the stock market also make possible the large gains many investors enjoy. It’s true that the fluctuations in the market make for losses as well as gains but if you have a proven strategy and stick with it over the long term you will be a winner!****Warren Buffett: Rule No. 1 - Never lose money. Rule No. 2 - Never forget Rule No. 1.
Aim for durable, long-term outperformance in your stock market investing
Long term investors in the stock market will know that most go through hot and cold streaks.
More importantly, investors should aim for durable, long-term outperformance.
However, many investors either
lose in equity investment or
end up in a no profit-no loss situation.
Often, it happens that you start putting money in equities and the market moves to new highs. Then you are tempted to put in more money, since you are getting higher returns. Suddenly, the market starts to slide down.
Forget returns on investment, you are not even able to recover your capital. This is a common grouse of most investors.
Why? Is it because you make wrong decision or because the market is only meant for speculators and gamblers?
No, that’s not true. We go through this pain again and again because we do not learn from our previous experiences in the market.
Only the ‘smart investors’ survive the ups and downs in the market and make pots of money.
