Less is more. Concentrating on a limited number of quality stocks.
Boring is a good way to make money in the stock market. Don’t do anything just because I’m compelled to take some sort of action. Do Nothing sometimes is a good thing.
The market is unpredictable. Don’t fight the trend.
Cost basis does matter. To mitigate risk of my portfolio, buy a lot when the stock price falls below my cost basis and sell a lot with higher cost to bring the cost basis down. I’m essentially swapping out higher cost lot with lower cost lot to limit paper loss in case there’s a crash.
Have a plan.
Don’t improvising, stick to my plan.
Only own stocks that I understand.
Patience is a virtue, especially when buying.
When a quality stock drops to my preset price, BUY, BUY and BUY as it falls more below my original price. I regret that I didn’t buy enough at the end of descending because of fear, fear of not knowing how low it will drop. Have no fear, especially if the FED is intervening. This is easier said than done. Need to be psychologically strong to not let emotion take control.
Shiller PE Ratio of 27 is my friend.
Jan. and Oct., and first half of Dec seemed to be the volatile months of a year.
