For Warren Buffett, " The risk comes from not knowing what we are doing. »»

Invested only in companies you understand well.It seems to be obvious but many people wrongly think that they will let opportunities spin if they restrict their field of investment.

Yet Warren Buffett insists:

"" There are all kinds of companies that Charlie [Charlie Munger is the main business associate of Warren Buffett] and I do not understand, but we do not lose sleep.It only means that we are going to the next, and this is what the private investor should do. »»


"" Better to buy an extraordinary business at an ordinary price than an ordinary company at an extraordinary price. »»

Patience then!You don’t have a pistol on the temple.No hurry.Be patient and invest in high -quality companies when their prices become reasonable.You will take less risks while obtaining better results.

According to Warren Buffett, " Most people are interested in actions when everyone is interested.The moment of being interested is when no one else is.You cannot buy what is in sight and succeed. »»

The precepts of Omaha’s Oracle allow the FOMO to be avoided, this fear of missing an opportunity that pushes to invest in any asset or fashionable sector on the pretext that its course is flying away.Do not buy actions from a company after reading an electric article.Everyone will have the same idea!And above all beware of fashion effects, they created speculative bubbles!Do not fall into the current craze around artificial intelligence for example.Finally, do not take the recommendations of financial analysts to the letter which can be contradictory.

Make your own opinion and do not hesitate to go out of the beaten track of the values of the CAC 40: for example by diversifying your investments with ETFs which can be a good way to invest in the stock market.

However, it is possible to invest in fashionable companies and Warren Buffett has also bought Apple or Amazon shares, but there is no means to buy companies only because they are fashionable.You must base your stock picking on the fundamentals, valuation and understanding of the business model.

Warren Buffett says: " I invest in companies so wonderful that they can be managed by an idiot.Because sooner or later it will happen. »»

Invest in companies that are simple to understand and easy to manage.If the activity of a business is too complex, stay away.You will not be able to assess it.Favor companies that remain faithful to their basic activity such as Coca Cola for example.

Warren Buffett is categorical: " Do only what you would be perfectly happy to keep if the market closed for 10 years.»»

Avoid monitoring the day -to -day market news, you might find that stock prices do not evolve quickly enough.And the temptation to use the lever effect will be greater.However, if it allows you to multiply its earnings, it also multiplies losses!

Difficult not to think of real estate, favorite placement of the French when we hear this little sentence of Warren Buffett : "Our favorite investment horizon is forever.»»

Real estate is indeed a tangible asset, decorrelated from the financial markets which it is good to consider to diversify its assets in stock market investments!

Warren Buffett expresses this idea full of common sense in these terms: " If you ever find yourself in a flowing boat, the energy to change boat is more productive than energy to clog the holes. »»

In other words, don’t obstruct yourself, sell!

"" See market fluctuations as your ally rather than your enemy;take advantage of madness rather than take part in it.»»

Warren Buffett insists on the importance of a certain detachment and goes even further by encouraging to take the opposite of the trend: " We are just trying to be worried when others are eager and eager when others are worried.»»

In conclusion, we invite you to analyze your successes as your mistakes.According to Warren Buffett, " In the business world, the rear view mirror is always clearer than the windshield. »Take the opportunity to try to understand what you have succeeded and how, and where you failed and why!

Finally, do not forget the gold rule of Warren Buffet: " Rule number one: do not lose money;Rule number two, never forget the number one rule ".
