Real Investors Buy When Stocks Tumble

By    |   Friday, 18 Mar 2011 01:12 PM

Some recent headlines claimed that investors “lose” as stocks drop worldwide. That just isn’t true.

Speculators “lose” when stocks drop worldwide.

Real investors benefit from the market’s fear. I have averaged more than 20 percent compounded annually in the past 11 years.

Another investor I know mentioned how he hated looking at his portfolio on "down days."

I have had five “down days” in a row.

It’s just all part of the game. It’s like being a long-distance runner and saying you don't like to "sweat." A little sweating is all part of being an investor.

Real investors know there are short-term peaks and valleys.

He or she also knows that over time, choosing the right stocks at the right prices is paramount to success.

I have no idea what is going to happen in Japan. What I do know is that the smartest minds in the world are working to resolve the crisis.

Obviously, no one will benefit if the nuclear crisis spirals out of control. But pundits and news anchors have to report something.

But when the market is down, that’s the time to buy.

Stay focused. You must realize that investing is a marathon. Investing isn’t a sprint.
