The 16 Rules of Investment Success According To John Templeton

I found this little gem while browsing the internet. You can read it here. I hope you find it useful. The 16 rules are:

  1. Invest for maximal total return.
  2. Invest- don’t trade or speculate.
  3. Remain flexible and open-minded about types of investments.
  4. Buy low.
  5. When buying stocks, search for bargains among quality stocks.
  6. Buy value, not market trends or the economic outlook.
  7. Diversify. In stocks and bonds, as in much else, there is safety in numbers.
  8. Do your homework or hire wise experts to help you.
  9. Aggresively monitor your investments.
  10. Don’t panic.
  11. Learn from your mistakes.
  12. Begin with a prayer.
  13. Outperforming the market is a difficult task.
  14. An investor who has all the answers does not even understand all the questions.
  15. There is no free lunch.
  16. Do not be fearful or negative too often.
