How Warren Buffett Does It

How Warren Buffett Does It

Choose simplicity over complexity;

Make your own investment decisions;

Maintain proper temperament;

Be patient;

Buy businesses, not stocks;

Concentrate your stock investments;

View market downturns as buying opportunities;

Take a close look at management;

Practice independent thinking;

Stay within your circle of competence;

Understand Mr Market and the Margin of Safety;

Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful;

Read, read some more and then think;

Avoid the costly mistakes of others.
