🏰 Warren Buffett on growth versus value
In this series, we will teach you 5 things about the stock market in less than 5 minutes.
1️⃣ Warren Buffett on growth 🆚 value
All intelligent investing is value investing. You try to buy things for less than what they’re worth.
The intrinsic value of a company can always be calculated as follows: the discounted value of the cash that can be taken out of a business during its remaining life.
This also means that growth is always a component of value as it will increase the future cash flows.
2️⃣ Don’t be like this
Delayed gratification is one of the core principles of investing.
However, you should never ignore other important aspects in life such as health, family and friends, and kindness.
Life is all about seeking balance.
3️⃣ One simple investment quote
There are only 2 sorts of people who can time the market: dreamers and liars.
Timing the market is a fools game.
“Most people who have been really successful in the stock market say the same thing – that they’re not smart enough to get into the market and out of it. So they tend to remain more or less in the market at all times.” – Walter Schloss
