|The best investment strategy in the markets, and I've said this many times before. Make money any way you can that works for you. |
P.S. Recycled posts on Style of individual investing. My new style of today is more swing and option trading.
>I stay within my area of expertise, electronics and in particular the semiconductor industry, I have done quite well independent of investment style.
>Mine is boring and easy, stay long - but not for too long, learned that the hard way.
That is your style then. If we can learn from are mistakes than we are better for it. For me, I made some big kills early on in my investing years. To protect assets and lower risk. It was time for a portfolio and diversity (discipline). Every individual investor that can accept personal responsibility has to start somewhere. It's my opinion that once a individual investor achieves what they consider scale. If you have also decided your going to be an investor for the long term. A diversified portfolio is a must.
I am a skier, not recently though. Just because I can make it down a double diamond trail at Killington. Doesn't make me an expert. However, I can still have style in doing it. Once an individual investor has a portfolio. IMO- Your success or mistakes will determine how outside your own discipline you will venture.
Because of change, mistakes and strive for improvement. There is always something more to learn from others, (myself included).
That is why I have said many times before. " Listen to what others have to say, but do what you think is right yourself."
Many here at SI have there own investing styles. Many much better strategies, and styles than I. I try and stick to what has worked for me over the years (my own style). While adapting in over the years, styles and strategies, from others I have liked.
GITY-Good investing to you, and others here.
P.S. I'll see if I can stay out of the cellar. <G>
