Personal Quote:
"HAVE the courage of your knowledge and experience. If you have formed a conclusion from the facts and if you know your judgement is sound, act on it -- even though others may hesitate or differ. You are neither right or wrong because the crowd disagrees with you. You are right because your data and reasoning are right" -- Benjamin Graham. "YOUR goal as an investor should simply be to purchase, at a rational price, a part interest in an easily-understandable business whose earnings are virtually certain to be materially higher five, ten and twenty years from now. Over time, you will find only a few companies that meet these standards – so when you see one that qualifies, you should buy a meaningful amount of stock. You must also resist the temptation to stray from your guidelines: If you aren't willing to own a stock for ten years, don't even think about it for ten minutes. Put together a portfolio of companies whose aggregate earnings march upward over the years, and so also, will the portfolio's market value" -- Warren Buffett. "WHAT kind of father are you?" -- Mayn Jnr. "I'M just sayin' " -- Mrs Mayn "A BLACK belt is a white belt that never gave up" -- Master Martin. "COCK" -- James May. "IF you no longer go for a gap that exists, you are no longer a racing driver" -- Ayrton Senna. "LEAVE me alone, I know what I am doing" -- Kimi Raikkonen
