“Legendary Warren Buffett’s Investing Rules”

Rule 1 : Never lose Money.
Rule 2 : Never forget rule no 1.
Rule 3 : Pick Businesses , Not Stocks : Looks for companies with strong history, dominant market position, and high profits. A good investment is one with growth potential and trading below its true value.
Rule 4 : A wonderful company at Fair Price vs a fair company at wonderful price : Buffett is a value investor who likes to buy quality stocks at reasonable if not rock bottom prices. His goal is to build a portfolio of stocks that will reward him with profits and capital appreciation in years to come.
Rule 5 : Our Favorite Holding Period Is Forever : Warren Buffet is the ultimate exponent of a buy-and-hold philosophy.
Rule 6 : Be Willing to Be Different : Don’t follow the pack. You want to follow popular opinion because you can’t know how or from where those opinions derive. They could often be without any real basis. Buffett has suggested following your own gut instincts if you’re going to trust any gut instincts at all.
Rule 7 : Avoid credit card debt : According to Warren-“The two biggest weak links because of which people fail are liquor and leverage – leverage being borrowed money.”
Rule 8 : Invest in What You Understand: Don’t place your money in an area where you’re “incompetent,” at least until you become competent.  Confine yourselves to businesses that you understand.
