Warren would buy six packs of Coca-Cola for a quarter and sell each for a nickel. He also sold newspapers and magazines door to door. He collected and sold golf balls. And in fact he even got other kids from his neighborhood to collect and sold golf balls as well. He had all sorts of small ventures. He grew up knowing he wants to make money. He said he loved doing business and armed the bought 114 dollars in which had saved.
In 1942 he bought his first stock called Citizen Services. He said he went all in and made a good return. And I think it’s safe to say the kid had a bright future and together with his partner Charlie Munger they have created one of the largest corporations in the world. So luckily for you and I Warren has left clues as to how he became so successful. So in this video I’m going to share Ten Principles for investing that anyone can use to become rich. So whenever Warren goes hunting for companies and businesses to buy he looks at the management team first was a very talented incompetent and if so he buy shares in the business.
One of his policies is not to buy 100 percent of a company or a business but to own and non-controlling but substantial portion of the business. After all we own hundreds of companies. Who has time drawn Tobon right. Warren has invested in a vast amount of businesses over the years ranging from lollipops to jet airplanes. So the business as measured by earnings enjoy terrific economics producing profits start run from twenty five percent after tax to far more than 100 percent. Others generate good returns in the area of 12 percent to 20 percent. However a few of the businesses he has invested in have the report returns. The mistake he attributes to missteps in meeting capital allocation and evaluation of the economic dynamics of the companies and the industries in which it operated and on the other hand these missteps he attributes the poor returns are usually small blunders. The overall balance sheet so keep your mistakes to a minimum.
Don't be shy about taking calculated risk. Never gamble your money but invest in a venture that has a good chance of succeeding. Focus on the future productivity of the assets you are considering investing in. If you don't feel comfortable making a rough estimate of the assets future earnings just forget it and move on. No one has the ability to evaluate every investment possibility but on the science is unnecessary. You only need to understand the actions you are undertaking wern Buffett says. You don't need to be an expert in order to achieve satisfactory investment returns. However you must recognize your limitations and follow a Corser and worked reasonably well. Keep things simple and don't swing for the fence when promised quick profits respond.
No one investing if you focus on the prospect of price change or contemplated purchase. You are speculating there is nothing improper about this though why you should be skeptical of people who claim that they can accurately predict the future price of a stock with no solid evidence to prove so half of ball coin flippers will win their first toss. But none of those winners are sure to profit. If they continue to play the game. The fact that a given asset has appreciated in the recent past is never a reason to buy it don't keep watch over stocks really in Warren's annual report you wrote with my two small investments. I thought only of what the properties of pretty used and cared not at all about their daily valuations. Games are won by players who focus on the playing field not by those whose eyes are glued to the scoreboard. If you can enjoy Saturdays and Sundays without looking at the scoreboard give it a try and the weekdays forming macro opinions or listening to the macro or market actions of others is a waste of time.
Indeed it is dangerous because it may blur your vision of the facts that are truly important such as the annual report of the business future plans if they have any. The management team. Are they competent or not. Such things. Emotions aside. Owners of stocks however too often that their emotional and irrational behaviors of their fellow owners caused them to behave irrationally as well because there is so much chatter about markets the economy interest rates price behaviors of stocks cetera where you are overwhelmed and end up making irrational decisions.
Some investors believe it is important to listen to pundits and worse yet important to consider acting upon their comments. People too often become frantic when they hear chit chat about an inside trade deal. We just can't mess on. And worst of all the act on this false information without putting any time through research whether this information holds any merit or not. Never take investing advice from someone who doesn't have a clue about investing. T he point is the.
