From Security Analysis (1940), and Intelligent Investor:

1. for first-class, big (stable) company stocks, to wait for a downturn;
2. for secondary (unpopular) company stocks, to look for them at any time except at the near peak of an hausse (boom);
3. for a balance between bonds and stocks, to either move into bonds up to 75% in a boom;
4. to keep buying stocks at the same fixed sum as before, resulting in smaller purchases of first-class stocks (or index funds).
