What The Experts Say

“The investor’s chief problem -and even his worst enemy – is likely to be himself.”
Graham, Benjamin, (1894-1974) Legendary American Investor, Scholar, Teacher and Co- author of the 1934 classic, “Security Analysis”

“The one absolute requirement of a money manager is emotional maturity. If you don’t know who you are, the stock market is an expensive place to find out.”
Adam Smith, Political Economist

“The only way to beat the market is to exploit other investors’ mistakes.”
Charles Ellis, “Winning the Loser’s Game”

“History teaches us that investors behave wisely… once they have exhausted all other alternatives.”
Steve Leuthold, investment manager, The Leuthold Group

“A blindfolded chimpanzee throwing darts at the Wall Street Journal could select a portfolio that would do as well as experts.”
Burton G. Malkiel, A Random Walk down Wall Street

“There are two kinds of investors, be they large or small: those who don’t know where the market is headed, and those who don’t know that they don’t know. Then again, there is a third type of investor – the investment professional, who indeed knows that he or she doesn’t know, but whose livelihood depends upon appearing to know. “
William Bernstein, The Intelligent Asset Allocator

“Basically, we were guessing on interest rates…What we’ve come to believe is that no one can guess interest rates.”
Fred Henning, Head of Fixed Income Investing, Fidelity Investments

“Market Timing is a wicked idea. Don’t try it — ever.”
Charles Ellis, Winning the Loser’s Game

“Most investors, both institutional and individual, will find that the best way to own common stocks is through an index fund that charges minimal fees. Those following this path are sure to beat the net results (after fees and expenses) delivered by the great majority of investment professionals.”
Warren Buffett

“The average long-term experience investing is never surprising, but the short term experience is always surprising. We now know to focus not on rate of return, but on the informed management of risk.”
Charles Ellis
