8 Signs You're Investing Like Buffett

Value investing is an approach, a style of investing. It is not a set of formulas that allows you to beat the market. Value investors, like Warren Buffett, are prudent in their approach looking for good investments at a reduced price.

Value investors believe they are buying a business. If you went into business for yourself, you would look at many options and select the one that had the best prospects at a reasonable price. No sense committing your hard earned money to something that costs too much.

How do you know you would be a good value investor? Ask yourself if any of these characteristics describe you.

I'm business oriented. Do you like to understand how a business works? Can you describe to your better half why this company is the best one to place you money, and do you believe yourself when you explain it?

I love hunting for bargains. Do you check out the price at several stores before making a purchase? When shopping for a hotel, do you look for what kind of deals you can get before making a reservation? If you compare the price on anything you buy, you might be value investor.

I like crunching numbers. You like the simple maths that explains the fundamentals of the business. You want to compare the numbers of the companies you like to see the ones that offer the best opportunity. This does not mean you are mathematician, just someone who recognizes that the numbers tell the story.

I prefer to factor in a margin of safety. When you received your first credit card, you avoided carrying it for more than a year. The car you buy is rated the safest around. When you buy a stock you want to be sure it is at a low point.

I trust myself. While analyst reports are nice and can help to identify opportunities, you prefer to make up your own mind because you know analysts can have their own agenda. You like to gain a level of comfort that whatever you buy is the best possible option out there. The same applies to the companies you consider for investment.

I don't mind going against the grain. From experience, you find it is better not to follow the latest popular thing. Being a contrarian means you look for what is not in vogue now, but offers significant value. You know that it's unlikely the popular stocks are bargains.

I like to put together checklists. You find yourself making lists to be sure you get all that needs to be done accomplished. Checklists make your life easier. Value investors like to follow a checklist when they review a company. While a company may not match up perfectly on each item, you go through the process to help make the best decision with the available information.

I can patiently wait for the best opportunity. You don't mind waiting for the best opportunity to show itself. That doesn't mean you sit around watching TV, hoping a great investment falls into your lap. You are out actively looking for what you want. You just do not jump at the first potential opportunity that comes along. Value investors work hard while they wait for the right company to arrive at the right price. Once it does, they pounce. Then they are patient for the opportunity to bear fruit. However, if the market and the company proves their analysis wrong, they implement their pre-existing exit strategy and get out of the deal.

Good value investors tend to have most, if not all of these traits. If several of these characteristics fit you then you are ready to be a value investor. Source: http://www.investinganswers.com/

Well Managed Risks ... Bring Rewards!

“Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing.” - Warren Buffett 

We often listen to people who hesitate to invest in the stock market because they fear risk.

There are older people who fear that a stock crash could leave them destitute.

There are young couples who pine for a new home but worry that an investment loss could kill their chances.

For any investor, risk is a fact of life!

Whenever an opportunity opens up for you to make an investment profit, you also face the fear of the possibility of suffering an investment loss.

Even with "safe" kinds of investments, such as bank deposits, there is a risk that the rate you earn will not exceed the rate of inflation.

Often, these fears are rooted in a misunderstanding of what risk is. Those who understand market risks -- and properly evaluate their ability to tolerate them -- can supercharge their investment portfolios by embracing a certain amount of uncertainty!

In the financial world, risk translates to uncertainty and it's measured by standard deviation from the norm.

Many individuals would say the riskier investment is the first, because their principal would be in greater jeopardy. But to professionals, the first investment is merely stupid -- not risky -- because it's a sure thing to lose!

Still, what worries many is that you never know when the stock market is going to dive.

What if it falls right before you need to sell?

Most individuals measure risk as their chance of loss, but we measure risk by the variability of returns!

In other words, because stocks have higher average returns, you can suffer some losses and still end up vastly ahead over the long run.

There's only one situation in which adding stocks to your portfolio doesn't make sense -- when you don't have time to let the market work for you.

In any given year, you have about a 1 in 4 chance of taking a loss in the stock market. If one year or less is as long as you plan to invest, stocks boil down to a gamble.

But if your time horizon is five years or more, there's a very good chance that putting at least a portion of your money in stocks will boost the performance of your investments!

One question you have to resolve is the kind of investment risk you're comfortable taking.

The choice ranges from conservative to aggressive, with a broad middle ground between the extremes.

Conservative Investing means putting money where there's little risk to principal.

Moderate Investing means taking risks by putting money into growth stocks and bonds.

Aggressive or Speculative Investing means taking a possible risk of losing part of your investment in exchange for the possibility of making a larger profit.

The ideal risk equalizer is that you should work for balance among the various risk categories.

One of your concerns should also be that if you invest too conservatively, you wouldn't have enough money down the road to afford your goals even if you've been diligent in following your plan.

Another is that by taking too many chances you risk losing too much of your capital.

Best & Worst Trades of All Time

Nice graphic showing the 10 greatest — and worst — trades of all time. The lure of these outsized billion dollar wins seems to affect the psychology of many investors and traders, looking for that one giant score.

Speculation Defined

Graham and Dodd's Definition of Speculation

In their 1934 classic text, Security Analysis, Benjamin Graham and David Dodd provided a general definition of speculation: "An investment operation is one which, upon thorough analysis, promises safety of principal and a satisfactory return. Operations not meeting these requirements are speculative."

By this definition, most people who buy stocks are speculators. We can attempt to sharpen Graham and Dodd's definition by including time-scale. Speculators are not interested in putting their money into a stock or commodity for a long time. They want to see a good profit quickly - on a time scale of minutes to months. If their money does not quickly perform well in a situation, they move it into another situation.

In pursuit of greater gain, speculators take greater risks with their capital than people who put their money into Savings & CD Accounts.

Jesse Livermore's Definition of Speculation

Jesse Livermore, the 20th century's most (in)famous speculator provided his own definition of speculation - preceding Graham and Dodd's by several years. In Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, under his pseudonym of Lawrence Livingston, he said: "The speculator is not an investor. His object is not to secure a steady return on his money at a good rate of interest, but to profit by either a rise or a fall in the price of whatever he may be speculating in."


Intelligent Speculation

Benjamin Graham and Jesse Livermore both had more to say about speculation: Benjamin Graham continued - this time in The Intelligent Investor:

Outright speculation is neither illegal, immoral, nor (for most people) fattening to the pocketbook. More than that, some speculation is necessary and unavoidable, for in many common-stock situations there are substantial possibilities of both profit and loss and the risks therein must be assumed by someone.

There is intelligent speculation as there is intelligent investing. But there are many ways in which speculation may be unintelligent. Of these the foremost are:
* speculating when you think you are investing
* speculating seriously when you lack proper knowledge and skill for it
* risking more money in speculation than you can afford to lose

Livermore said:

* The game of speculation is the most uniformly fascinating game in the world. But it is not a game for the stupid, the mentally lazy, the person of inferior emotional balance, or the get-rich-quick adventurer. They will die poor.
* Speculation is a hard and trying business, and a speculator must be on the job all the time or he'll soon have no job to be on.
