We talk about value investing here – the investment philosophy of Benjamin Graham and his disciples, such as Warren Buffett, Walter J. Schloss, Irving Kahn, William J. Ruane, Tom Knapp, Robert H. Heilbrunn, Ed Anderson, Charles Brandes and their modern prodigies.
The secret to value investing is patience, and that’s usually are in short supply these days. Since true value investors buy beaten down undervalued stocks, they need to patiently wait, may be for years for the true value to be recognized. Warren Buffett once said, “You can’t make a baby in a month by getting nine women pregnant.” Something just need some time. Patience is the virtue for all investors and the secret to stellar performance.
Please note that we do not discuss about or issue recommendations (such as buy, sell, hold or whatever) for any specific investment idea.
“Throughout all my years of investing I’ve found that the big money was never made in the buying or the selling. The big money was made in the waiting” __Jessie Livermore (July 26, 1877 – November 28, 1940), an American stock trader
“Successful investing requires a crazy combination of gumption and patience, and then being ready to pounce when the opportunity presents itself, because in this world opportunities just don’t last very long” __Charlie Munger, Vice Chairman, Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
