How to Stick to the Plan
By any measure, Warren Buffett is one of the best investors in the world. According to Morningstar, Buffett's top 10 stock picks have beaten about 98% of all stock mutual funds in the US.
Not bad right?
Now what if I told you that Buffett's top picks have underperformed US stocks in seven of the last nine years. If this was your adviser, you would certainly fire him at some point!
The key takeaway is achieving returns over the long-term is difficult. Following along is really hard.
When our portfolios experience tough times we are often reminded about the value of sticking with our investing style. Many styles work, but abandoning a style at the wrong time could leave your portfolio with losses that are difficult to ever recover. Follow the system, stick with the plan and be rewarded by achieving your long-term goals.
