Dear all,

Good video to watch to remind ourselves of the fundamental principles of stock investments. Fundamental principles which are often bypassed at our our peril.

Some important take away:
1. Only invest in what you understand.
2. Only invest with the money that you do not need for a "long time".

My personal take:
1. Never borrow to invest (unless you have the ability to pay back).
2. Contra trading is sinful.
3. Any form of risk taken must be calculated. Did you know that risk refers to the likelihood of gains and losses? Not just likelihood of losses.
4. The greatest enemy is yourself, not the market.
5. An intelligent investor need not have a phd, but has the patience to wait out the cycles and uncertainties.
6. Professional stock investors are like you and I normal folks in the street. That means we have every good reason to outperform the market.
7. Hearsay is dangerous, trust yourself first.
8. There is nothing shameful about starting small, but never forget the rule about "not losing money".
9. Exiting is always an option. If you can't beat the market, come back another day. Don't die today.
10. Loi Pok Yen (Chief Exec CWT) said "Don't worry about making a mistake, but don't repeat it." Its a very important rule to remember.
11. Believe in what you in invest. Thats how you gained conviction in what you invest in.
12. The best resources available without cost is yourself and your time. The other best tool/ invention (which is not free) in modern civilisation is the spreadsheet and that just costs a little bit.
13. The affairs of the heart is easier of entry than exit. Same goes for a failing business. But, its easier if you just let your rational mind do the job, than to let your heart do it. Its business and really nothing to do with emotions.

Happy trading.
For Peter Lynch fans. 180+ pages and probably like a book.

Peter Lynch Articles For Worth Magazine

I wanted to share these articles with you. I believe that most investors are not even aware that they exist. I believe these articles could be a good addition to your knowledge base, if you have read the author's books. The articles provide a more real-time view of his investing thought process, as he was doing it, and without the benefit of hindsight.
