Investing is simple but not easy. Here are my quotes by the 4 Greatest Investors to guide me along in my investment journey:
1) “Be Fearful When Others are Greedy, Be Greedy when Others are Fearful”
The quote by the world’s greatest investor, Warren Buffett, who achieved a compounding annual growth rate of 20.1% for an impressive 49 years.
This quote reflects the state of mind of what a great investor should have. You would have heard “Buy Low, Sell High”. So buy when the market is low when others are fearful and running away from the stock market. Sell when the market is extremely high, when others are being greedy in the market.
2) “Investment is Most Intelligent When It’s Most Businesslike”
Author of a widely acclaimed investment classic, The Intelligent Investor, which Warren Buffett states “By Far the Best Book of Investing Ever Written.“
This quote by Benjamin Graham means instead of seeing stock ownership as owning merely pieces of stock certificates, the investor should consider themselves as owners of these businesses and consider the economics of the businesses that these stocks represents.
3) “Behind Every Stock is a Company, Find Out What it’s Doing”
A previous Portfolio Manager of the Fidelity Magellan Fund, Peter Lynch had 13 successful years of growing the fund from $18 million to $14 billion from 1977 to 1990, averaging a compounded annual growth rate of 29.2%.
This quote also serves as a reminder to investors that ownership of shares equals to the ownership of the businesses. So, do your research on these companies and understand what you are buying.
4) “The Stock Market is Filled with Individuals who know the Price of Everything, but the Value of Nothing.”
One of the most influential investors of all time, Philip Fisher documented his investment thoughts in the investment classic, Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits.
Rather than understanding and knowing the “Value” of the stock that they are buying, many people in the stock market resort to looking at the price charts and listening to stock recommendations to guide their investment decisions. Investing involves more than just listening to popular stock recommendations and looking at the Price charts of the stock market all the time.
Value Investing is about buying a stock having a value of $1 at a price of 50 cents.
