Warren Buffet

It's far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.

We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful

Only buy something that you'd be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for 10 years.

Rule No.1: Never lose money. Rule No.2: Never forget rule No.1.

Everyone has the brainpower to follow the stock market. If you made it through fifth-grade math, you can do it.

One of the funny things about the stock market is that every time one person buys, another sells, and both think they are astute

In the old days you needed military force to conquer & control a country. Today force is not necessary at all. You can destabilize a country, make it poor & then make it request for help. For the help that is given you gain control over the policies of that country & once you have control of a country's polices you have effectively colonized it.

If making a trade causes you to be nervous or lose sleep, you are investing too much or taking too much risk.

Warren Buffett's Rules for Successful Investments

Beyond those simple tenets, there are a few rules - those other Buffett Rules - that guide Buffett's conscience as he makes investment decisions.

Rule No. 1: Consistent Performance

Warren Buffett won't even consider a company unless it's been around for 10 years or more and can demonstrate a record of consistent performance.

One metric Buffett uses to track performance is return on equity (ROE). ROE measures the rate of return on the money invested by stockholders and retained by the company in profitable times, demonstrating a company's ability to generate profits from shareholders' equity (net assets). In other words, ROE shows how well a company uses investment funds to generate growth.

Last November, after years of eschewing technology stocks, Buffett sank $10.7 billion into International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE: IBM). A quick look at IBM's ROE tells much of the story. With a stellar 73.40% ROE, IBM is in the 98th percentile overall, and the single-best performer in its industry.

The Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE: KO), another of Buffett's holdings (he owns 200 million shares), has a less astronomical - yet still very impressive - ROE of 26.18%

Rule No. 2: High Income

Buffett has said that one of the best ways to stay wealthy is to invest in companies with a stable business and a high dividend. As a buy-and-hold investor, Buffett minimizes his tax liability by remaining in his positions for years, even decades.

Dividend stocks help to balance out a growth-oriented portfolio, which is what you'll have if you're following Buffett's footsteps. Your portfolio will be more diverse, and you'll be insulated a bit from market volatility.

In Buffett's portfolio, you'll find high-yield stocks like General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE), which yields 3.60%, and GlaxoSmithKline plc (NYSE: GSK), which pulls in 5.80%. You'll also find ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP), in which Buffett has $2.1 billion invested. COP has a market cap of $96.8 billion and is yielding 3.60%.

The important thing to look for is dividend growth. As the company grows and the stock price goes up, does the dividend rise? Look for companies that have increased their dividend each of the last several years.

Rule No. 3: Manageable Long-Term Debt

Warren Buffett, as a general rule, doesn't like debt -- especially long-term debt. The debt-to-equity (D/E) ratio tells investors what proportion of equity and debt the company is using to finance its assets. A high D/E ratio can lead to greater volatility in a company's earnings. But what's really important is how much debt a company has compared to its competition in the same industry. All of Buffett's positions take a prudent approach to debt.

Take, for example Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ). Its D/E ratio currently sits at 0.3439, which is about average. But over the last five years, it's 0.2648, a bit better than average.

Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC), another of Buffett's newer holdings, has averaged a D/E of 0.064 over the past five years. Visa Inc. (NYSE: V), in which Buffett has a nearly $100 million stake, has had a microscopic D/E ratio of 0.030 over that same period.

While he only speaks about debt in a general sense, it is believed that Buffett is most concerned with a company's ability to repay its debts. To figure this out, simply divide the long-term debt by profit. In the case of JNJ, it would take just a bit over three months for it to pay off its long-term debt, which is very manageable.

Rule No. 4: The "Economic Moat"

High profit margins relative to a company's closest competition are extremely important. This creates what is known as an "economic moat," a term coined by Buffett to describe a company's competitive advantage. Economic moats help defend against competitors that try to gain market share by imitating successful products. In short, an industry leader itself can be an imposing barrier to entry, and those are companies Buffett thinks have value.

Look at Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG), owner of brands like Tide, Pampers, Oral-B, Gillette, and Duracel, to name just a few. PG's long-term strategy is to compete only in markets where it is first or second in market share. That leadership position allows the company to comfortably raise prices when its costs go up, and its many popular brands represent pretty high barriers to entry in most of the markets in which they compete.

Rule No. 5: Sound Management

Buffett has said that investors should buy stocks as though they are buying the company. Buying stocks, therefore, is a vote of confidence in how that company is managed.

Evidence of good management, in Buffett's view, is when management's actions deliberately benefit shareholders. This includes things like share buybacks, wise use of retained earnings (transforming earnings into market value), and focusing on the core business. In general, it's when management acts as a good shepherd for its shareholders' money.

Berkshire's holdings read like a who's who of well-managed companies: Kraft Foods Inc. (NYSE: KFT), Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE: WMT), M&T Bank Corp. (NYSE: MTB), Sanofi SA (NYSE: SNY), and U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB), to name a few.

So there's no magic or extraordinary clairvoyance illuminating Buffett's great investments. There's not even a complicated trading strategy at work.

It is just a simple, principled approach to investing that's made Warren Buffett a billionaire several times over.

What exactly does Graham
mean by an “intelligent” investor?. It simply means
being patient, disciplined, and eager to learn; you must also be able to
harness your emotions and think for yourself
. This kind of intelligence,
explains Graham, “is a trait more of the character than of the brain.
There’s proof that high IQ and higher education are not enough to
make an investor intelligent. In 1998, Long-Term Capital Management
L.P., a hedge fund run by a battalion of mathematicians, computer
scientists, and two Nobel Prize–winning economists, lost more than
$2 billion in a matter of weeks on a huge bet that the bond market
would return to “normal.” But the bond market kept right on becoming
more and more abnormal—and LTCM had borrowed so much money
that its collapse nearly capsized the global financial system.
And back in the spring of 1720, Sir Isaac Newton owned shares in
the South Sea Company, the hottest stock in England. Sensing that
the market was getting out of hand, the great physicist muttered that
he “could calculate the motions of the heavenly bodies, but not the
madness of the people.”
Newton dumped his South Sea shares, pocketing
a 100% profit totaling £7,000. But just months later, swept up in
the wild enthusiasm of the market, Newton jumped back in at a much
higher price—and lost £20,000 (or more than $3 million in today’s
money). For the rest of his life, he forbade anyone to speak the words
“South Sea” in his presence.
Sir Isaac Newton was one of the most intelligent people who ever
lived, as most of us would define intelligence. But, in Graham’s terms,
Newton was far from an intelligent investor. By letting the roar of the
crowd override his own judgment, the world’s greatest scientist acted
like a fool.

If you’ve failed at investing so far, it’s not because you’re
stupid. It’s because, like Sir Isaac Newton, you haven’t developed the
emotional discipline that successful investing requires.

If a company reprices (or “reissues” or “exchanges”) its stock options for insiders, stay away. In this switcheroo, a company cancels
existing (and typically worthless) stock options for employees and executives, then replaces them with new ones at advantageous
prices. If their value is never allowed to go to zero, while their potential profit is always infinite, how can options encourage
good stewardship of corporate assets? Any established company that reprices options—as dozens of high-tech firms have—is a disgrace.
And any investor who buys stock in such a company is a sheep begging to be sheared.

Economic history is a never-ending series of episodes based on falsehoods and lies, not truths. It represents the path to big money. The object is to recognize the trend whose premise is false, ride that trend and step off before it is discredited.  -- George Soros

Not exactly a stock market quote, but i somehow feel it applies to traders. Found it via 'fti' on forexfactory.com

Desiderata
 prose poem by American writer Max Ehrmann

Go placidly amid the noise & haste,
And remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly & clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant;
They too have their story.

Avoid loud & aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain & bitter;
For always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
For the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
Many people strive for high ideals; & everywhere is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
For in the face of all aridity & disenchantment, it is perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue & loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
You have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
Be careful. Strive to be happy.

I hate waking up.
