Weekend Thoughts – 8

 

  • An investment philosophy is not available next door. It gets built over a period of time. One needs to go through a lot of ups and downs in order to visualize what really works best for him/her.
  • If you want to be a cricketer, you need to practice 10-12 hours a day. While it’s exactly opposite when it comes to investing. With an extremely low activity, you can generate one of the best results in the long-term.
  • The sparks of Warren Buffett picking a minority stake in Paytm have been flying for quite a while now. Certainly, a big boost for tech startups in India. It clearly indicates the huge potential of technical breakthroughs that are happening in India.
  • Money is put at risk when invested in equities. But when it’s well diversified over a set of quality companies, it grows considerably in the long-term. Money is put at risk too when kept in a savings account. And the inflation risk ensures that you fail to achieve your goals.
  • The buy-and-hold strategy doesn’t mean Buy-and-Forget. It means Sitting Passively and Observing Actively.
  • When we wrap our mentality around a long-term orientation, we start competing against ourselves. It’s too difficult to manage emotions for such a huge timespan.
  • Based on the bits of advice from the business news channels, most of us invest in order to reap the profits at the end of the day. A time horizon of just 1-day. Is buying quality and waiting not important? Is today really important?
  • The way we behaved in past can be one of the best indicators to show how we would react during future declines. In the hindsight, we may now look at the past declines as opportunities but show the same irrational behavior whenever a decline would happen in future.

  • If the recent selloff couldn’t deter your investing discipline then the upcoming 4 State Elections, General Elections, Spike in Oil Prices, further Depreciation in INR, CAD, Sanctions on Iran in Nov, Hike in US Rates mustn’t impact it either. Macros are not going to improve soon
  • Due to the recent sell-off in small & midcap space, many quality scrips had to bear the brunt too. The gains made in 2017 have been wiped out in 2018. But don’t be disheartened. Continue investing in the quality companies. Going forward, you’ll surely reap the benefits
  • Some of the stocks rise due to their strong fundamentals. While a few others rise in the anticipation that they’ll perform well in the near future
  • There are many companies that don’t look good on the paper. But people love the euphoria behind them. Emotions come into the picture and the stocks start rising
  • We don’t need to have an IQ of Einstein or Newton to invest. Investing is simple. Formulae make it complex
  • Mark Zuckerberg’s wealth plunged by $18 Billion yesterday. A decline of 20-30% has happened in the past too. That too with strongest of the strongest stocks. It’s always better to be psychologically prepared to face such drawdowns
  • The quality holding will always bear the brunt of the noise in the market. Its price may fall down in the short-term but in the long-term, it will always stand tall
  • If you are investing through SIP route, never stop following the process. Have faith in the Indian economy and stay disciplined with your approach. You’ll surely get rewarded
