Investors have very short memories.
Roman Abramovich - Investing


My wheels are running. My investments are local, regional and international.

Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud - Action - Long Term Investing - Investing


I swore I was going to exclusively collect assets and not liabilities for the rest of my life. I swore never to take gambles I couldn’t back up, or that I couldn’t afford to lose. And, I’ve stuck with that ever since.
Tim Blixseth - Assets -
Loss - Investing - Determination - Life

I don't think the market can keep going up. In the U.S., we see real estate not going up.. houses are selling at lower prices. You can't have anything going up 10 percent to 20 percent to 30 percent indefinitely.
Eli Broad - America - Selling - Real Estate - Investing - Property

A pin lies in wait for every bubble. And when the two eventually meet, a new wave of investors learns some very old lessons: First, many in Wall Street (a community in which quality control is not prized) will sell investors anything they will buy. Second, speculation is most dangerous when it looks easiest
Warren Buffett - Stock Market - Bubble - Bust - Investing - Knowledge - Wall Street - Greedy - Speculation


Wide diversification is only required when investors do not understand what they are doing.
Warren Buffett - Stock Market - Investing - Diversification

I don't look to jump over 7-foot bars: I look around for 1-foot bars that I can step over.

Warren Buffett - Smart - Investing


We've long felt that the only value of stock forecasters is to make fortune tellers look good. Even now, Charlie and I continue to believe that short-term market forecasts are poison and should be kept locked up in a safe place, away from children and also from grown-ups who behave in the market like children.
Warren Buffett - Stock Market - Experts - Investing - Funny

We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful.
Warren Buffett - Greed - Fear - Investing

Whether we're talking about socks or stocks, I like buying quality merchandise when it is marked down.
Warren Buffett - Stock Market - Investing - Cheap - Quality

When forced to choose, I will not trade even a night’s sleep for the chance of extra profits.
Warren Buffett - Risk - Investing - Profit

Why not invest your assets in the companies you really like? As Mae West said, "Too much of a good thing can be wonderful".
Warren Buffett - Investing - Assets - Companies

Take me as an example. I happen to have a talent for allocating capital. But my ability to use that talent is completely dependent on the society I was born into. If I'd been born into a tribe of hunters, this talent of mine would be pretty worthless. I can't run very fast. I'm not particularly strong. I'd probably end up as some wild animal's dinner.
Warren Buffett - Stock Market - Investing - Talent - Society - Nature

Our future rates of gain will fall far short of those achieved in the past. Berkshire's capital base is now simply too large to allow us to earn truly outsized returns. If you believe otherwise, you should consider a career in sales but avoid one in mathematics.
Warren Buffett - Stock Market - Investing - Profit - Sales - Mathematics


The dominant propaganda systems have appropriated the term "globalization" to refer to the specific version of international economic integration that they favor, which privileges the rights of investors and lenders, those of people being incidental. In accord with this usage, those who favor a different form of international integration, which privileges the rights of human beings, become "anti-globalist." This is simply vulgar propaganda, like the term "anti-Soviet" used by the most disgusting commissars to refer to dissidents. It is not only vulgar, but idiotic.
Noam Chomsky - Propaganda - Globalization - Economy - Loan - Investing - Human Rights

I'm a firm believer that to really understand a business takes years, not months. As an investment analyst you think you understand a business from the outside, but the reality is that, once you are inside, you can go on learning for five or ten years.
Chris Corrigan - Management - Business - Investing
- Learning

I'd always had a childhood ambition to go into the investment capital business, and spent twenty-odd years in it. But the thought of spending the second half of my career in the same business was boring, so I looked around for other opportunities.
Chris Corrigan - Business - Investing - Ambition
- Opportunity - Job

As long as you enjoy investing, you'll be willing to do the homework and stay in the game. That's why I try to make the show so entertaining, because if you aren't interested, you'll either miss the opportunity to make money in the market or not pay enough attention and end up losing your shirt.
Jim Cramer - Money - Stock Market - Losing - Enjoyment - Investing - Opportunity

Picking the right stocks is one of the hardest parts of investing, and every night on Mad Money, I try to take some of that burden off your shoulders.
Jim Cramer - Money - Investing - Stocks

I rarely think the market is right. I believe non dividend stocks aren’t much more than baseball cards. They are worth what you can convince someone to pay for it.
Mark Cuban - Stocks - Investing - Stock Market

Wall Street people learn nothing and forget everything.
Benjamin Graham - Learning - Stock Market - Investing

Most of the time common stocks are subject to irrational and excessive price fluctuations in both directions as the consequence of the ingrained tendency of most people to speculate or gamble... to give way to hope, fear and greed.
Benjamin Graham - Stock Market - Investing - Greed - Fear

The individual investor should act consistently as an investor and not as a speculator. This means.. that he should be able to justify every purchase he makes and each price he pays by impersonal, objective reasoning that satisfies him that he is getting more than his money's worth for his purchase.
Benjamin Graham - Investing - Stocks - Money

I am no longer an advocate of elaborate techniques of security analysis in order to find superior value opportunities.
Benjamin Graham - Investing - Stocks - Opportunity

It has been my experience that competency in mathematics, both in numerical manipulations and in understanding its conceptual foundations, enhances a person's ability to handle the more ambiguous and qualitative relationships that dominate our day-to-day financial decision-making

Alan Greenspan - Money - Investing - Knowledge - Finance -


The Internet doesn't change everything. It doesn't change supply and demand. It doesn't magically allow you to build businesses by turning investors' money into operating expenses indefinitely. The money always runs out eventually.. the Internet doesn't change that, as we have seen.
Andrew Grove - Change - Internet - Investing - Money

The boom was healthy too, even with its excesses. Because what this incredible valuation craze did was draw untold sums of billions of dollars into building the Internet infrastructure. The hundreds of billions of dollars that got invested in telecommunications, for example.
Andrew Grove - Internet - Investing - Money

People ought to invest in us because they like our company and the way they run it. We still do quarterly earnings guidance, but we tell people openly that they ought to look at the company for the long term and that's how they ought to invest.
Jeffrey Immelt - Companies - Future - Investing - Long Term Investing - Management - Earnings

I have a problem with too much money. I can't reinvest it fast enough, and because I reinvest it, more money comes in. Yes, the rich do get richer.

Robert Kiyosaki - Money - Investing - Rich -

We go to school to learn to work hard for money. I write books and create products that teach people how to have money work hard for them
.
Robert Kiyosaki - Money - Investing - Rich - Knowledge -


Our industry expertise (at KKR) enables the firm not only to make better investment choices but also to win the confidence of senior management and sellers, which has enabled us to purchase many companies on an exclusive basis.
Henry Kravis -

When I'm bearish and I sell a stock, each sale must be at a lower level than the previous sale. When I am buying, the reverse is true. I must buy on a rising scale. I don’t buy long stocks on a scale down, I buy on a scale up.
Jesse Livermore - Bear Market - Stocks - Investing

The price pattern reminds you that every movement of importance is but a repetition of similar price movements, that just as soon as you can familiarize yourself with the actions of the past, you will be able to anticipate and act correctly and profitably upon forthcoming movements.
Jesse Livermore - Stock Market - Investing - Learning

I never hesitate to tell a man that I am bullish or bearish. But I do not tell people to buy or sell any particular stock. In a bear market all stocks go down and in a bull market they go up.
Jesse Livermore - Bear Market - Stocks - Stock Market - Investments

You get recessions, you have stock market declines. If you don't understand that's going to happen, then you're not ready, you won't do well in the markets.

Peter Lynch - Bear Market - Stock Market - Investing -

In this business if you're good, you're right six times out of ten. You're never going to be right nine times out of ten.

Peter Lynch - Luck - Stock Market - Investing -

I've found that when the market's going down and you buy funds wisely, at some point in the future you will be happy. You won't get there by reading 'Now is the time to buy.'

Peter Lynch - Bear Market - Investing - Happiness

Go for a business that any idiot can run - because sooner or later, any idiot probably is going to run it.
Peter Lynch - Management - Business - Investing -


I do not believe maximizing profits for the investors is the only acceptable justification for all corporate actions. The investors are not the only people who matter. Corporations can exist for purposes other than simply maximizing profits.
John Mackey - Profits - Investing
- Business Ethics

You had a lot of novice investors who got into the market looking for easy money, without any regard to the fundamentals. These stocks were running on fumes. (Madoff talking about the Internet bubble)
Bernard Madoff - Investing - Greed - Stocks - Money - Risk - Bull Market

The person that is buying a share of stock is convinced he knows something that the other person who's selling it to him does not know. There's no zero sum game in Wall Street.
Bernard Madoff - Investing - Wall Street - Stocks - Stock Market - Buying - Selling

You just have to be opportunistic, and try to figure out what creates value.. where the bottom is, what creates incremental value, and in what combinations.
John Malone - Opportunity - Investing


The fact that equities are being sold down, despite the lowest interest rates in recent history, simply means that the market doesn't see growth ahead for very many businesses.
John Malone - Investing - Markets
- Growth

Recently somebody said, "Hey, you lost weight," and I said, "Yeah, thirty-five pounds and three and a half billion dollars." So I'm quite a bit lighter and more flexible than I was.
John Malone - Investing - Loss

In financing growing companies, we always looked for human value that didn’t appear on the balance sheet.. the quality of management, especially its entrepreneurial drive.
Michael Milken - Investing -

Understanding how to be a good investor makes you a better business manager and vice versa.
Charlie Munger - Management - Investing
- Understanding

If you took our top fifteen decisions out, we’d have a pretty average record. It wasn’t hyperactivity, but a hell of a lot of patience. You stuck to your principles and when opportunities came along, you pounced on them with vigor
Charlie Munger - Investing - Best
- Decisions - Opportunity

As with all politically lead governments, foreign investment is the slowest in the media section. Politicians are somewhat paranoid about the media but we still think it’s worthwhile.
Rupert Murdoch - Change - Media - Government - Competition - Investments

Capitalism should not be condemned, since we haven’t had capitalism. A system of capitalism presumes sound money, not fiat money manipulated by a central bank. Capitalism cherishes voluntary contracts and interest rates that are determined by savings, not credit creation by a central bank. It’s not capitalism when the system is plagued with incomprehensible rules regarding mergers, acquisitions, and stock sales, along with wage controls, price controls, protectionism, corporate subsidies, international management of trade, complex and punishing corporate taxes, privileged government contracts to the military-industrial complex, and a foreign policy controlled by corporate interests and overseas investments. Add to this centralized federal mismanagement of farming, education, medicine, insurance, banking and welfare. This is not capitalism!
Ron Paul - Federal Reserve - Government - Military Industrial Complex - Economy - Banks - Welfare - Monetary Policy - Capitalism - Fiat Money - Interest Rates - Protectionism - Taxes - Investment - Farming - Education - Insurance

As bank customers, we tend to believe that we can have both perfect security for our money, drawing on it whenever we want and never expecting it not to be there, while still earning a regular rate of return. In a true free market, however, there tends to be a tradeoff: you can enjoy a money warehouse or you can hope for a return on your investment. You can't usually have both. The Fed, however, by backing up this fractional-reserve system with a promise of endless bailouts and money creation, attempts to keep the illusion going.
Ron Paul - Federal Reserve - Banks - Money - Customers - Free Market - Investment - Illusion

Many of the biggest and most far-reaching investments we make in our lives are investments that have little or nothing to do with money.
Daniel Quinn - Investing -
Life - Money

At the time we acquired Viacom, everyone said I had overpaid. But even at today's depressed prices, that investment is worth billions. Everyone was saying MTV was a fad. I knew better.
Sumner Redstone - Media - Buying - Instinct - Advice - Investing

When buying shares, ask yourself, would you buy the whole company?
Rene Rivkin - Stocks - Investing - Companies

I love the market, it is my work, my play and my life.
Rene Rivkin - Stock Market - Investing - Work

There are no rules about investment. Sharks can be good. Artist's dung can be good. Oil on canvas can be good.
Charles Saatchi - Art Collecting - Investing


Nobody can give you advice after you've been collecting for a while. If you don't enjoy making your own decisions, you're never going to be much of a collector anyway.
Charles Saatchi - Art Collecting - Investing - Decisions


The financial markets generally are unpredictable. So that one has to have different scenarios.. The idea that you can actually predict what's going to happen contradicts my way of looking at the market.

George Soros - Stock Market - Investing -

Well, real estate is always good, as far as I'm concerned.

Donald Trump - Real Estate - Investing -

I always felt very secure and very safe with real estate. Real estate always appreciates.
Ivana Trump - Real Estate - Investing

The rich get richer. Not only because they have surpluses with which to invest, but because of the overriding emotional release they experience from having wealth.
Stuart Wilde - Rich - Investing - Optimistic


The question is not do you take money out of stocks and put it into real estate, or the reverse. There's so much money out there looking for a home. I don't think it's either/or.
Sam Zell - Real Estate - Questions - Money - Stocks - Investments
