Warren Buffett Advice on Investment

  • Invest in what you know.
  • Invest in companies that can be run by their current managers and don’t need a lot of extra capital spending on them. If you invest in a company with a lot of potentials, but little cash flow, you will never get your money back.
  • Don’t Follow the Herd: Follow Your Own Path! Warren Buffett is famous for sticking with what he knows and not following the herd when everyone is buying something. He once said: “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.” This means that you should sell when everyone else is buying and buy when everyone else is selling because that’s when everyone gets excited.
  • Focus on single-digit revenue businesses that have high returns on equity and limited capital requirements; once you find such a company, buy as much stock as possible.
  • If you buy stocks for less than they’re worth, there’s no reason to sell them ever – hold them forever because they will earn well.

And the GDP would go up. But the utility of the product would be zilch, and I would be keeping those 10,000 people from doing AIDS research, or teaching, or nursing. I don’t do that though. I don’t use very many of those claim checks. There’s nothing material I want very much. And I’m going to give virtually all of those claim checks to charity when my wife and I die.”

“When I was sixteen, I had just two things on my mind – girls and cars. I wasn’t very good with girls. So I thought about cars. I thought about girls, too, but I had more luck with cars.
Let’s say that when I turned sixteen, a genie had appeared to me. And that genie said, ‘Warren, I’m going to give you the car of your choice. It’ll be here tomorrow morning with a big bow tied on it. Brand-new. And it’s all yours.’
Having heard all the genie stories, I would say, ‘What’s the catch?’ And the genie would answer, ‘There’s only one catch. This is the last car you’re ever going to get in your life. So it’s got to last a lifetime.’
If that had happened, I would have picked out that car. But, can you imagine, knowing it had to last a lifetime, what I would do with it?
I would read the manual about five times. I would always keep it garaged. If there was the least little dent or scratch, I’d have it fixed right away because I wouldn’t want it rusting. I would baby that car because it would have to last a lifetime.
That’s exactly the position you are in concerning your mind and body. You only get one mind and one body. And it’s got to last a lifetime. Now, it’s very easy to let them ride for many years. But if you don’t take care of that mind and that body, they’ll be a wreck forty years later, just like the car would be.
It’s what you do right now, today, that determines how your mind and body will operate ten, twenty, and thirty years from now.”
― Warren Buffett
