Quote for the day

“Since investors are human and make mistakes, they're never 100% sure of their vision and whether or not their view is correct. So price adjustments take time as they fluctuate and a new consensus is formed in the face of changing market conditions and new facts. For some changes this consensus is easy to reach, but there are other events that take time to formulate a market view. It's those events that take time that form the basis of our profits.” - John W. Henry

How Does Facebook Make Its Money?

The Warren Buffett Method of 12!

Warren Buffett is Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., a USA holding company, with interests in several subsidiaries engaged in a number of diverse business activities.



                        

Berkshire Hathaway Inc. also has holdings or owns several large private companies.

When Buffett invests, he sees a business whilst most investors see a stock price.

According to Buffett, the investor and the business person should look at the company in the same way, because they both want essentially the same thing.

The business person wants to buy the whole company and the investor wants to buy portions of the company.

Buffett believes that in the long run, the price of the stock should approximate the change in value of the business.

He believes it is foolish to use short-term prices to judge a company's success.

Instead, he lets his companies report their value to him by economic progress.

The Warren Buffett Method of 12:
1. Is the business simple and understandable?
2. Does the business have a consistent operating history?
3. Does the business have favourable long-term prospects?
4. Is management rational?
5. Is management candid with its shareholders?
6. Does management resist the institutional imperative?
7. Focus on return on equity, not earnings per share!
8. Calculate "owner earnings."
9. Look for companies with high profit margins.
10. For every dollar retained, make sure the company has created at least one dollar of market value.
11. What is the value of the business?
12. Can the business be purchased at a discount to its real value?

Quote for the day

“Knowing when to "get a hunch and bet a bunch" is not so much a matter of luck. It is more a matter of hard work, intuition and experience, coupled with a dedicated focus on being in touch with the ebb and flow of markets from day to day. In other words, the hard work of being deeply in tune with markets — and justifying your convictions through constant interaction and hypothesis testing at lower risk levels — is precisely what fuels the winning combination of careful and conservative 90% of the time plus balls-out aggressive 10% of the time. You earn the right to swing, and just as importantly the insight as to when to swing, through consistency, diligence, and dedication.” - Jack Sparrow

Quote for the day

“The profitability of trading systems seems to move in cycles. Periods during which trend-following systems are highly successful will lead to their increased popularity. As the number of system users increases, and the markets shift from trending to directionless price action, these systems become unprofitable, and undercapitalized and inexperienced traders will get shaken out. Longevity is the key to success.” - Ed Seykota

A to Z - Motivational Tips

■ A – Achieve your dreams.
Avoid negative people, things and places. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Consume yourself with the motivation to achieve tremendous results from everything you attempt

■ B – Believe in yourself, and in what you can do.
Motivation comes from within, if you trust in your abilities you will come out on top.

■ C – Consider things on every angle and aspect.
Motivation comes from determination. To be able to understand life, you should feel the sun from both sides. Never say never, there is a way of accomplishing anything if you keep an open mind and never give up.

■ D – Don't give up and don't give in.
Thomas Edison failed once, twice, more than thrice before he came up with his invention and perfected the incandescent light bulb. Make motivation as your steering wheel. The only way you lose for sure is when you quit.

E – Enjoy. Work as if you don’t need money.
Dance as if nobody’s watching. Love as if you never cried. Learn as if you’ll live forever. Motivation takes place when people are happy. Maintain a positive attitude under any circumstance. Fill your mind with positive thoughts and the whole world will be your playground.

■ F – Family and Friends – are life’s greatest ‘F’ treasures.
Don't lose sight of them. So often we look past our greatest treasures, remain motivated to always seek the treasures in your family bonds.

■ G – Give more than what is enough.
Where does motivation and self improvement take place? At work? At home? At school? When you exert extra effort in doing things. Try to give more than what is asked of you, this shows true self motivation.

■ H – Hang on to your dreams.
They may dangle in there for a moment, but these little stars will be your driving force. Dreams keep us motivated to go after the things that excite us in life. Holding onto your dreams shows a strength in your character of positive expectations.

■ I – Ignore those who try to destroy you.
Don't let other people to get the best of you. Stay away from toxic people – the kind of friends who hates to hear about your success. Surround yourself with positive people and you will all keep each other motivated to seek out the positives in life.

■ J – Just be yourself.
The key to success is to be yourself. And the key to failure is to try to please everyone. Believe in your strengths and live by your positive terms.

■ K – keep trying no matter how hard life may seem.
When a person is motivated, eventually he sees a harsh life finally clearing out, paving the way to self improvement. Motivation keeps you striving for the best, hang onto the values brought on through positive thinking.

■ L – Learn to love yourself.
Now isn't that easy? You cannot give love to others unless you love yourself. Learn how to motivate yourself into working on your own personal development. You will never grow as a person until you learn to take responsibility for your own self improvement.

■ M – Make things happen.
Motivation is when your dreams are put into work clothes. Motivation is one of the strongest characteristics you can have. When you live your life filled with motivation you become a person who really gets things done.

Let’s Take A Motivational Break Now That We Have Made It To The Halfway Mark!

Now you have to ask yourself; is stopping half-way through any projects you have taken on something you find yourself doing often? This tends to be the breaking point for many, they set out to complete a task but at the first sign of trouble they give up because their motivational skills are weak. Is this what happens to you?

It is up to you to not allow your dreams to slip away in night. You must do whatever it takes to keep yourself motivated if you are to achieve any type of significant success in your life. The next time you are working towards a goal and you come across a bit of resistance remember to put your motivational skills to work. It’s

OK to stop and regroup at the halfway mark but that is all that you do, once you are sure you're still on the right path it’s time to get moving again.

■ N – Never lie, cheat or steal.
Always play a fair game. A person with a good moral standing will go further in life than an unmotivated cheat. Never look for short-cuts to good things, this will lead to missed opportunities and challenging possibilities.

■ O – Open your eyes.
People should learn the horse attitude and horse sense. They see things in 2 ways – how they want things to be, and how they should be. Life is full of possibilities, keep the motivation to go after the wonders in the world.

■ P – Practice makes perfect.
Practice is about motivation. It lets us learn repertoire and ways on how can we recover from our mistakes. Maintaining the motivation to work hard towards the things you truly want out of life will bring you more rewards than sitting back and expecting things to happen.

■ Q – Quitters never win.
And winners never quit. So, choose your fate – are you going to be a quitter? Or a winner?

■ R – Ready yourself.
Motivation is also about preparation. We must hear the little voice within us telling us to get started before others will get on their feet and try to push us around. Remember, it wasn’t raining when Noah build the ark. The boy scout motto is “Be Prepared” and this is a way of life we should all adapt to.

■ S – Stop procrastinating.
Nothing kills motivation more then procrastination. Choose to spend your time accomplishing positive things in your life.

■ T – Take control of your life.
Discipline or self control jives synonymously with motivation. Both are key factors in self improvement. When you know what you want out of life and you are motivated to work towards the attainment of your dreams, you will accomplish more then the average person lacking motivation.

■ U – Understand others.
If you know very well how to talk, you should also learn how to listen. Yearn to understand first, and to be understood the second. Understanding another persons problems in life and being motivated to offer help to others, builds your own character.

■ V – Visualize it.
Motivation without vision is like a boat on a dry land. Your mind can bring you whatever you desire in life. Visualize success and success will be yours, visualize defeat or loss and failure will encompass your life. Maintain the motivation to visualize success and achievements.

■ W – Want it more than anything.
Dreaming means believing. And to believe is something that is rooted out from the roots of motivation and self improvement. When you have strong wants this leads to the motivation to attain what you truly desire.

■ X – X Factor is what will make you different from the others.
When you are motivated, you tend to put on “extras” on your life like extra time for family, extra help at work, extra care for friends, and so on. Set yourself apart from others, stand out in the crowd, hold your head up high with pride and conviction.

■ Y – You are unique.
No one in this world looks, acts, or talks like you. Value your life and existence, because you’re just going to spend it once. Use the fact that you are one of a kind to excel at everything you do in life. True motivation is for you and you alone, use it to move forward in life, show your uniqueness.

■ Z – Zero in on your dreams and go for it!!!
Never lose your motivation to go after your dreams because living your dreams means you are living your life.

"Plan Your Trade and Trade Your Plan."

Your Stock Trading Efforts Are Doomed To Failure without This..........

So many of us seem to lose money, or at best are just fortunate to break even in the stock market. Have we ever wondered why?

Quite often, beginning traders get excited when they get lucky and one or two of their stock picks turns into a profitable trade. The thought then naturally follows that this "stock trading thing is pretty easy!" With so many books, magazines and info available on the internet devoted to trading and investing strategies, the excited trader then starts devouring every bit of information they can get hold of. Their new-found knowledge will certainly ensure success - right?

Quite possibly, with this newly acquired plethora of knowledge, trading can go pretty well for a time. Sooner or later, at some point when they hit a snag and see their profits starting to dwindle, the thought then naturally occurs "what am I doing wrong?" It can be both frustrating and disappointing. It's not monopoly money you're playing with, after all.

Time to reign things in and get a real Stock Trading Plan. That's what's been missing from the start. Even when you set out with the best of intentions, and armed to the teeth with all the knowledge available - if there isn't a proper Trading Plan to follow, you're doomed to failure. You just can't implement everything at the same time. You have to pick a few strategies - and stick with them.

It seems so simple, doesn't it? But in our information age, it's so easy to get overwhelmed with all the available knowledge; use a little of this, a little of that, and you just end up hurting yourself and getting discouraged. It's wise to use a few strategies when you know how to implement them, and that in itself becomes a strategy that will work for you when you know what you're doing.

It's more than wise to devote some time to create a stock trading plan for yourself - and stay the course. Stick with your plan, and make adjustments along the way. See what works and what doesn't work so well for you. In doing that you will educate yourself by understanding the why of what works and what doesn't. This can only help to improve your overall trading plan.

Learn from your mistakes - like every other trader has done before you. Don't give up, only to start over from scratch. Put your lessons to good use in adjusting your trading plan. But above all - have a plan.

“Learn from your mistakes. Don't be misled by the day-to-day fluctuations in your equity. Focus on whether what you are doing is right, not on the random nature of any single trade's outcome.” -  Richard Dennis

Invest like a Buddhist monk?

Found this article in http://www.gurufocus.com/
By Jonathan Herson 


Invest like a Buddhist monk? Are you sure this is the right title? Maybe it’s the wrong GuruFocus.com.

Nope, this is definitely the right title, the right topic, and the right website. You may be wondering how I came up with such a concept.

The key word is latticework. As Charlie Munger likes to say, “To the man with a hammer every problems looks like the head of a nail.” For years I was that man with a hammer. I would be stuck with one lens for each subject, closed to any other points of view.

But after studying successful investors and Buddhism for many years my perspective began to change. I noticed that a lot of the characteristics that showed up in successful investors also showed up in Buddhist philosophy. By looking through the lens of Buddhism on stock investing, I was not only able to dramatically improve my investment results, but my life as well.

So lets get this latticework started with a brief background of Buddhism.

Brief Background on Buddhism

In 623 BC on the border between India and Nepal a prince named Siddhartha Guatama was born. Siddhartha’s father King Shuddodana consulted Asita, a well-known sooth-sayer, concerning the future of his newborn son. Asita proclaimed that he would be one of two things: He could become a great king, even an emperor. Or he could become a great sage and savior of humanity. The king, eager that his son should become a king like himself, was determined to shield the child from anything that might result in him taking up the religious life. And so Siddhartha was kept in one or another of their three palaces, and was prevented from experiencing much of what ordinary folk might consider quite commonplace. He was not permitted to see the elderly, the sickly, the dead, or anyone who had dedicated themselves to spiritual practices. Only beauty and health surrounded Siddhartha.

As Siddhartha continued living in the luxury of his palaces, he grew increasing restless and curious about the world beyond the palace walls. He finally demanded that he be permitted to see his people and his lands. The king carefully arranged that Siddhartha should still not see the kind of suffering that he feared would lead him to a religious life, and decried that only young and healthy people should greet the prince.

As he was lead through the capital Kapilavatthu, he chanced to see a couple of old men who had accidentally wandered near the parade route. Amazed and confused, he chased after them to find out what they were. Then he came across some people who were severely ill. Finally, he came across a funeral ceremony by the side of a river, and for the first time in his life, saw death. He asked his friend and squire Chandaka the meaning of all these things, who informed him of the simple truths that Siddhartha should have known all along: That all of us get old, sick, and eventually die.

At age 29, Siddhartha came to realize that he could not be happy living as he had been. He had discovered suffering, and wanted more than anything to discover how one might overcome it.

After going from one guru to the next, and pushing his body to its absolute limits (self starvation), he decided that there had to be another way.

While sitting under the Bodhi tree and searching for the answers to human suffering, Siddhartha became the enlightened one. He had discovered the Middle Way, which is the Nirvana-bound path of moderation away from the extremes of sensual indulgence and self-mortification. He began to practice wisdom, morality and mental cultivation (Boeree 1).


So what does all of this have to do with being a successful investor?

Lets go through the four common themes of Buddhism and how they relate to successful investing.

Rationality
Thinking clearly

Empiricism
The Buddha found his way through his own direct experience

Pragmatism
“Strictly speaking in Buddhism scriptural authority cannot outweigh an understanding based on reason and experience” – Dalai Lama

Skepticism
The Buddha told his followers not to just believe him
They should test out his beliefs and see if they actually work


Successful Investing

Rationality
“Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful” - Warren Buffett
Do not let your emotions get control of you-invest with reason and logic

Empirical
* Peter Lynch unlearning the theories he learned at Wharton, and relearning how to invest though his own direct experience
* Most of the great investors (Buffett, Lynch, Soros) have borrowed their ideas from others, but before accepting them they tested them out. They learned how to invest mainly through their own direct experience

Pragmatism
“Ben's Mr. Market allegory may seem out-of-date in today's investment world, in which most professionals and academicians talk of efficient markets, dynamic hedging and betas. Their interest in such matters is understandable, since techniques shrouded in mystery clearly have value to the purveyor of investment advice. After all, what witch doctor has ever achieved fame and fortune by simply advising 'Take two aspirins?” – Warren Buffett

Skepticism
“Ships will sail around the world but the Flat Earth Society will flourish” – Warren Buffett

As you can see both Buddhism and successful investing have much in common.

My latticework really started to come together after I read the Kalama Sutra (a sermon given by the Buddha to his followers). After reading it, it seemed like I was reading a Berkshire Hathaway Annual Report!!! Whether he knows it or not, Mr. Buffett’s philosophy is very similar to that of a Buddhist monk (the bold wording comes from the Kalama Sutra):

Don't believe in anything simply because you heard.
“You have to think for yourself. It always amazes me how high- IQ people mindlessly imitate. I never get good ideas talking to other people.” – Warren Buffett

Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
“After all, if you are in the shipping business, it’s helpful to have all your potential competitors be taught that the earth is flat,” comments Buffett about the current state of college financial training.

Do not believe in anything because it is spoken and rumored by many.
“ A public opinion poll is no substitute for thought” – Buffett

Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
“If EMT were true I would be a bum on the street” – Buffett

Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
“Forecasts usually tell us more of the forecaster than of the forecast.” –Buffett

But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all then accept it and live up to it.
“ When proper temperament joins up with the proper intellectual framework, then you get rational behavior.” – Buffett

To sum things up, don’t be afraid to combine topics which may seem unrelated. The man with a hammer syndrome is hard to overcome, but is entirely possible to conquer. In my continuing series, I am going to show you how thinking like a Buddhist monk will make you a better investor.

Quote for the day

“The best trades are the ones in which you have all three things going for you: fundamentals, technicals, and market tone. First, the fundamentals should suggest that there is an imbalance of supply and demand, which could result in a major move. Second, the chart must show that the market is moving in the direction that the fundamentals suggest. Third, when news comes out, the market should act in a way that reflects the right psychological tone.” - Michael Marcu

Quote for the day

“Taking a loss is hard to do because it's an admission that you've been wrong. But in the market, being wrong some of the time is part of the game. On each trade, you have to establish your 'uncle point,' the point where you'll get out of a losing position, and you have to have the mental discipline to pull the trigger at that point.” - Marty Schwartz
