Pick a strategy and stick with it.

Pick a strategy and stick with it.

Different people use different methods to pick stocks and fulfill investing goals. There are many ways to be successful and no one strategy is inherently better than any other. However, once you find your style, stick with it. An investor who flounders between different stock-picking strategies will probably experience the worst, rather than the best, of each. Constantly switching strategies effectively makes you a market timer, and this is definitely territory most investors should avoid. Take Warren Buffett’s actions during the dotcom boom of the late ’90s as an example. Buffett’s value-oriented strategy had worked for him for decades, and – despite criticism from the media – it prevented him from getting sucked into tech startups that had no earnings and eventually crashed.
