Stocks are the biggest wealth engine of any investing strategy. Gold, bonds, mutual funds can’t beat the returns of well researched stocks.
People say that the little guy can’t win, but it can be done Take a lesson from Sun Tzu’s Art of War that applies to investing:
““If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected .”
Of course, we really are not attacking anyone. However, the little guys out there can use this (and others) principle to evade, dodge and weave with and from the massive Mutual Fund managers and Hedge Fund Managers that are too big to take meaningful positions into, or liquidate positions out of, stocks without impacting the price substantially. This is where we live.
