One Of The Great Things About Stock Investing

One of the great things about stock market investing is you do not have to do something all the time. In fact, most of the time the best thing that you can do is do nothing. You know, look out of the window, go to the movie, drink beer. Most of the time, people think they have got to jump around and do something and that is when they make mistakes. Just wait, it is going to happen. If you saw some money lying in a corner, you would go over and pick it up, would you not? Well, just wait, and when you see something like that in the investment world, when you know there is money lying over there in the corner, run over and pick it up. That is when you do something.

Investing: It Is Never Easy

I constantly have people tell me how easy it was in the old days. I do not remember when it was ever easy, because when you are in it at the time there are always scores of things that you are worried about - at least I am. I can look back on some of my great triumphs and they may seem easy now, but at the time I am sure I was sitting there sweating and wondering, and saying, "Oh, my God. Is this right? I am doing the right thing?"

Gold: Waiting For The 50 Percent Correction

Gold has not been down 50 percent in many years and that is not normal. Most things go down 50 percent every 3 or 4 years. It is just the way the markets work. If gold were to go down 50 percent that would be 960 dollars an ounce. If it goes to that, I hope I am smart enough to buy a lot more.

Investing: The Reason To Buy Cheap

The reason you want to buy something cheap is so that you do not have much risk; if you are wrong, you are not going to suffer too badly. Buying something cheap does not do you any good on its own.; it might stay cheap for years. You have got to have a reason why it is going to change and why something is going to get better.
