Beyond the Charts: Understanding the True Essence of Investing The Irrelevance of Market Noise Every day, the media bombards us with information about the fluctuations of market indexes. But for a seasoned investor, these daily ups and downs are mere noise.

Every day investors sit and procrastinate about being a shareholder in the stock market is another day they don’t get the compounding effect working for them. Even those investors who saw their portfolio valuations decline in 2022 still had the compounding effect working on the dividends being paid. The only decline in their portfolio was on paper, and the important snowball compounding effect was alive and working. And if they continued to ..read more

The Business Mindset of the USA I often struggle to put into words why I love the USA when it comes to investing. But a guest on the Compound & Friends podcast on Friday summed it up best when he said. “The USA operates like a business.” This is so true. And whilst the USA has its problems, most of the world’s greatest companies have been born and bred in the USA. And this is highly likely to continue well into the future. The Tech Dominance: Past, Present, and Future I am a strong believer that technology will continue to be the best performing sector over the next 20 years. Just as it ha ..read more

The Importance of Earnings Reports I get worried when any of the companies I own will likely see their earnings begin to decline in coming quarters. This can often happen after a company issues a future market guidance report (which usually comes with each quarter’s earnings report). Or on the company’s shareholder conference call.

Each day, when I look at the companies that I own, I am eager to see if there has been any news that could impact their earnings potential. If the overall market is up or down ..read more

Here is an interesting fact… When you start to manage your own money successfully, as you get older you actually get better and the money continues to compound.

In the investing game you can genuinely get better with every year… so long as you are not giving your money to others to manage. As a private investor, age will not slow your performance. It will only enhance it.  But ..read more

The counterintuitive approach of the world’s most successful investors…  It has always amazed me that business schools, financial planners and money managers are forever running the line that investors need to be diversified and should not put all their eggs in one basket.  But the facts are that the most successful investors are not diversified at all.  The most successful investors (such as Buffett, Soros, Tepper, Icahn, Munger and many others) have never used a diversified approach.  The most successful investors put all their eggs in one basket, and then watch the baske ..read more
