1. Check your emotions when you leave the house

"Investing success doesn't correlate to intelligence... it's a matter of temperament. must have the right mindset to handle the impulses that can lead you in trouble when investing." Warren Buffett is chairman of Berkshire Hathaway. He is an investment guru who serves as a role model to investors seeking longer-term, long-term, market-beating and wealth building yields.

Before we begin Let us offer you a bonus tip. We recommend not investing more than 10 percent of your portfolio in individual stocks. The remainder should be a diversified mix of index mutual funds with low costs. The money you will need within the next five years should not be put in stocks. Buffett was referring to investors who allow their heads and not their guts to guide their investing decisions. Overactive trading that is driven by emotions can be one of the main ways investors ruin their portfolio's returns.

2. Don't pick ticker symbols. Instead, look for companies
It's easy to forget that in the alphabet soup of stock quotes that crawls at the bottom of each CNBC broadcast is actually a business. Stock picking shouldn't be just an abstract notion. Remember that you are part owner of a company if you purchase a share.

"Remember: Buying shares of a company's stock will make you a part owner of that business."

When you're looking for potential business partners, there's a lot of information. But, it's much easier to focus on the important information when you wear a "business buyer" hat. You'll want to know how this company operates and its position within the larger market, its competitors, its long-term prospects and whether it adds something new to the list of businesses that you already have.

3. In case of panic make a plan
Sometimes investors feel tempted by the temptation to change the status of their stocks. The most common mistake made by investors of investing in high-quality stocks and selling them cheap is often made when you're caught up in the rush. Journaling can help you avoid this. Track what makes each stock worth your time and write down any circumstances that might justify you separating. Let's look at this example:

Why I bought: Describe your favorite aspects of the company, and what opportunities you anticipate for the future. What are your expectations for the company? What metrics and milestones are most important to you when evaluating the progress of your company? The possible pitfalls that may occur and how to identify these.

What will cause me to sell? There are reasons that warrant splitting into two. This section of your journal should include an investment agreement. It will outline what you would do to make the shares more sellable. This isn't about price movements particularly not in the short-term, but fundamental changes to the company that affect its ability to grow over the long run. An example: A business loses a large client. The CEO's successor takes the business in a new direction. Or, your investing theory doesn't hold up after a reasonable amount of time.

4. As you progress, build your positions
An investor's superpower is timing and not time. The most successful investors purchase stocks because they anticipate to be rewarded -- whether through share price appreciation, dividends and dividends, etc. in the course of years or even decades. It also means you can purchase slow. The three buying strategies listed above will reduce your vulnerability to price fluctuations.

Dollar-cost average sounds complicated but it's really not. Dollar-cost averaging is the process of investing a set amount at regular intervals. For instance, each month or week. The money you invest will purchase more shares when the prices of stocks fall, and decrease when they increase but it's still the average price that you pay. Some brokerage firms online permit investors to set up an automated investing schedule.

Buy in Thirds: Like dollar-cost Averaging, "buying In Thirds" can help you avoid the negative experience of getting bad outcomes right away. Divide your investment by three. Then, choose three points to purchase shares. The purchase could be set to happen on a regular basis (e.g. quarterly, monthly), or based upon the performance of the company or events. For example, you can buy shares before the launch of a new product and transfer the remainder of your cash to it if it's successful.

Purchase "the whole basket" Do you think you can choose which company within an sector will be the long-term winner? All stocks are good! Get a selection of stocks to ease the stress of finding "the the one". It isn't a risk to lose any player that passes your analysis, and you could also utilize the gains from that winner as a hedge against losses. This method will allow you to identify which firm is "the one to beat" and help you double your position.

5. Avoid trading too much
The quality of your stock should be checked at least once a quarter. It's difficult to keep an eye on your scoreboard. This could cause you to react too quickly to immediate events. You may focus more on the price of shares than company value and believe that you need to take action when none is required.

If one of your stocks suffers a sharp price movement Find out what caused the price movement. Is collateral damage due to the market as a result of an unrelated incident affecting your stock? Has the company's business changed? Do you have a clear picture of the long-term consequences of the change?

It is rare that quick-witted noise (blaring headlines and price fluctuations) can influence the long-term success of a well-chosen business. How investors respond to the noise is what's important. This is the place where your investment journal, a quiet voice that speaks for you in times of uncertainty, can help you stick it out through the inevitable ups and ups associated from investing in stocks.
