The secret benefit of Diversification #IntelligentInvestor

Image
BasicsLet's say you invested all your money by picking 10 different stocks in automobile sector. If government announces any policy like changes in taxes, upgraded crash norms, new engine standards etc., this can have huge impact on company's performance, at-least in short term.

Imagine, if you had diversified your investments across sectors like automobiles, IT, agriculture, construction, Retail, Oil & Gas etc. you wouldn't have got affected as much as you have in the first case.

In simple words, Diversification means spreading your investments across different companies/sectors/countries.

FYI, there are some mutual funds which invest in countries like United States, China, and other emerging markets. You can take advantage of these funds for diversification across countries as well.


Known Benefit
Common sense tells us that diversification helps us reduce the risk of our investments.

Thus, probability of you losing your capital is reduced drastically as you diversify more.

Valuations - #5 Multibagger Magic Mantra

You should never buy every single great stock!!!
Yes, you heard it right!
Don't ever buy a company's only because it is a great business!
Just like you shouldn’t buy the next best phone from Apple or Google if it costs a Million.
Even if you can afford to buy, you would be a fool to buy at that price!
Luckily, every day stock prices vary and you just have to wait for the right price which you think is right and then hit “BUY”!

Price is something everyone knows, but what is it really worth?
There is a magic trick to find just that!

In fact, all-time-greatest investor Warren Buffett first looks at the business, comes up with a price in his mind and then looks at today's market price of that stock!

Sounds crazy, but the technique is very simple and anyone can apply it.
