Top 10 Quotes by Famous Investors

Here are the best advices and quotes by well-known investors I could find:

1. DO YOUR RESEARCH
"If you don't study any companies, you have the same success buying stocks as you do in a poker game if you bet without looking at your cards."
Peter Lynch, Head of Fidelity's Magellan Fund

2. HAVE PATIENCE
"This company looks cheap, that company looks cheap, but the overall economy could completely screw it up. The key is to wait. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to do nothing."
Peter Lynch, Head of Fidelity's Magellan Fund

3. BE CRITICAL AND OPINIONATED
"I will tell you how to become rich. Close the doors. Be fearful when others are greedy. Be greedy when others are fearful."
Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway

4. LOOK FOR HIDDEN CHANCES AND DARE TO SWIM AGAINST THE STREAM
"It's not always easy to do what's not popular, but that's where you make your money. Buy stocks that look bad to less careful investors and hang on until their real value is recognized."
John Neff, Head of Vanguard's Windsor Fund

5. USE YOUR COMMON SENSE AND KNOW THERE ARE ALWAYS RISKS
"If you have trouble imagining a 20% loss in the stock market, you shouldn't be in stocks."
John Bogle, CEO of The Vanguard Group

6. TO GO BEYOND AVERAGE PERFORMANCE REQUIRES HARD WORK
"To achieve satisfactory investment results is easier than most people realize; to achieve superior results is harder than it looks."
Benjamin Graham, Author of "Value Investing"

7. DON'T OVERTHINK THINGS
"If you have more than 120 or 130 I.Q. points, you can afford to give the rest away. You don't need extraordinary intelligence to succeed as an investor."
Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway

8. TIMING MATTERS A LOT
"Smart investing doesn't consist of buying good assets but of buying assets well. This is a very, very important distinction that very, very few people understand."
Howard Marks, CEO of Oaktree Capital Management

9. DON'T GET EMOTIONALLY INVOLVED
"The emotional burden of trading is substantial; on any given day, I could lose millions of dollars. If you personalize these losses, you can't trade."
Bruce Kovner, Commodities trader

10. BE SELECTIVE IN YOUR PORTFOLIO
"Wide diversification is only required when investors do not understand what they are doing."
Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway.
