How do you invest successfully?

Hi Sir/Madam,

How do you invest successfully?

First we have to define what successful investing means and is.

To invest successfully you have to be able to do either better than or the same as the market average, attaining good investment results consistantly over the long term.

Investing is all about beating yourself at your own game, not how you can beat others at theirs. You have to be able to manage your emotions and make rational decisions in regards to selecting optimal investment options. Being able to choose the right investment options is essential for being able to beat the market: don’t speculate or you aren’t investing.

To attain better than average results, you have to take on an investment approach which leads to you being able to generate sound and stable returns over the long term. Beating the market is simple but it is not easy, you should always seek to pick out the right investment choices: Low p/e and low p/b are 2 indicators of stocks that on average.

To invest successfully you need to be able to constantly learn and grow, you can not beat the market by not always learning and improving your investment philosophy as there is always more to learn when it comes to investing in the stock market. You should be focused on choosing investment options which have a great margin of safety, a gap between price and intrinsic value: the greater the gap, the better your chances are at beating the market.

To be successful in the markets, you have to be able to think independently, most news is noise and not news- learning to make investment decisions based on your own knowledge and understanding of a company will aid you in attaining better investment results. Learning how to use news to your advantage can help you beat the market, as news can cause the market to over react to certain events.

How do you beat the market?

To beat the market is simple:

  • Invest in what you know
  • Buy companies which will give back more cash in the future
  • Value a company with sound metrics
  • Be patient in selecting stocks and holding them
  • Always improve your investment philosophy
  • Be careful about what you let into your ears
  • Always seek to learn about the markets
  • Invest using your own independent philosophies and approach
  • Beat the market by avoiding it’s pitfalls
  • Know how to react to news

The process is simple but it is hard.

Thank you for reading and have a fantastic day.
