Robert G. Hagstrom in 1999 wrote a book on legendary investor Warren Buffett. The book was titled “The Warren Buffett Portfolio.”
This book explains how the Warren Buffett used to pick stocks to buy and when. You will learn about “Focus Investing” too. Focus investing is study of management, how they work and the companies’ financial position compared with other companies in the same business and most importantly their stock price. If the economics of the company is strong he believed it will bring great returns. Once this stock is discovered to invest he called it a stock with great Stock Moat.
Warren Buffett rarely averaged his stocks. Once he decided to invest, he used to buy it in huge quantity and average time holding was five years. Once the company lost its Stock Moat he used to sell.
Focus investing is good for long term investors. The books also deeply studies psychological mindset of Warren Buffett while researching a stock.
Psychology before we trade like greed, fear, planning works to a great extend while researching a stock, option or futures to invest.
I will try to discuss the important suggestions and points to remember from the book. All topics may not be covered but the most important topics are covered below.
Stocks is Not Just A Stock It’s a Business
Most people buy stock to make money fast without thinking that they are actually investing in a business. When you buy a stock you actually become part owner of the company. If the company performs well the stock goes up you make a profit. If it does not perform well, the stock value goes down and you make a loss if you sell.
The point is think about the company before you invest your money, not to invest because you think this stock will go up, instead you must ask yourself will this company perform better over the long term?
To help you learn the best possible investment decisions I have designed a new course on How To Invest Well And Retire Peacefully. It will help you to chose good stocks and mutual funds. Every detail is there like how to chose, when to average, when to sell etc. If interested please contact me.
Size of Your Investment Does Matter
Warren Buffett never invested in too many companies because he believed over diversification may hamper returns. He never invested in just one or two companies either. He had a well balanced portfolio.
How to create a well balanced portfolio is also written in my investment course.
Size allocation, risk management, when to invest and sell, everything is there. This is known as doing your home work before investing in a stock. Buffett use to do his home work properly before investing in any stocks. How to do this home work is there in the investing well course.
Allocation in some good companies over the years may bring amazing returns if the stocks you chose are good and well managed companies. In fact if stock investing is done well you may retire with crores of rupees.
Invest in companies with favorable long-term prospects.
