12 Timeless Rules of Investing: Guidelines Every Investor Should Embrace, But Few Actually Do
An Investment U White Paper Report
By Dr. Steve Sjuggerud, Advisory Panelist, Investment U
In the special report below, I identify 12 classic investing rules that every investor can use throughout their lifetimes. These time-honored guidelines are proven in helping investors achieve their goalssometimes in capitalizing on gains, and sometimes in mitigating losses. Enjoy!
1. An attempt at making a quick buck often leads to losing much of that buck.
- The people who suffer the worst losses are those who over-reach.
- If the investment sounds too good to be true, it is.
- The best hot tip I've found is "there is no such thing as a hot tip."
2. Don't let a small loss become large.
- Don't keep losing money just to "prove you are right."
- Never throw good money after bad (don't buy more of a loser).
- When all you're left with is hope, get out.
3. Cut your losers; let your winners ride.
- Avoid limited-upside, unlimited-downside investments.
- Don't fall in love with your investment; it won't fall in love with you.
4. A rising tide raises all ships, and vice versa. So assess the tide, not the ships.
- Fighting the prevailing "trend" is generally a recipe for disaster.
- Stocks will fall more than you think and rise higher than you can imagine.
- In the short run, values don't matter.
