Advice from Warren Buffett

“The trick in investing is to watch ball after ball go by and wait for the one right in your sweet spot. If people are yelling, ‘Swing, you bum,’ ignore them. There’s a temptation for people to act far too frequently in stocks simply because they’re so liquid.” Later in the film, he observes that “the biggest thing in making money is time. You don’t need to be smart, just patient.”

That is the trouble with most people today. They are too impatient and not willing to wait. Many investments, blue chips that pay good dividends are not going to provide the get rich quick schemes that consumers look for. However over 10 years, these stocks usually grow and they pay dividends all of the time. Reinvest those dividends and combined with growth you will usually do very well if not better than many indexes.

There will also be upticks and down ticks in the stock market. Being patient with good quality low risk blue chip stocks usually pays well. They always seem to return to their previous highs and even higher.
