...PEs and underlying values and listening instead of talking when Warren Buffett has something to say. I am mostly sitting on sound tech investments which tend to be volatile and cyclical. Need to continue to avoid EGO (Edging God Out) investing. Technical analysis for me tends to be all about volume and may signify that someone knows something. Knowing when to hold and when to fold is the question which is most reasonably answered by holding longer than shorter most of the time unless something dramatic changes. The above is just good general priniciples, but I am more and more impressed with how there really is nothing new under the sun and how for most of the time it seems that holding to a few basic principles has a megaton positive effect (extended analysis is usually a waste of time since usually the obvious is apparent. Out of thousands of stocks, it really is not that big of a trick to find wonderful investments if one accepts what is out front and obvious. And, hey, invest how you like and what fits your natural bent (what works for you may not work for me and vice versa). There seldom are deep secrets which have to be mined from a jungle. It is more like buying the obvious bargain at a garage sale.
