Key Questions for the Long-Term Investor

You cannot help but notice all of the talking heads that claim to be investment “experts” when you turn on the TV, check out the web, or open the paper.  The reality is that the principles of successful long term investing are much different than most people think.  If you are interested in what you SHOULD be asking, here is a great list:

  1. What sort of competition do I face as an investor?
  2. What are my chances of picking an investment fund that survives and outperforms?
  3. If I choose a fund because of strong past performance, does that mean it will do as well in the future?
  4. Do I have to outsmart the market to be a successful investor?
  5. Is there a better way to build a portfolio?
  6. Is international investing for me?
  7. Will making frequent changes to my portfolio help me achieve investment success?
  8. Should I make changes to my portfolio base on what I’m hearing in the news?
  9. So, what should I be doing?

The right questions were raised.

And by the way, here is a hint:  “successful, long term investing” is EXTREMELY redundant.
