"Not everything that can be counted counts and not everything that counts can be counted" — Albert Einstein
Investing is part art and part science !
The science part is easy all you need to do is look at the numbers. Review the company's balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow and you are halfway there. However, if successful investing were all about the numbers and reading, accountants and librarians would be the highest paying occupations. Such is not always the case.
The art part comes into play when after reading a company's annual report and the letter to shareholders, you ask yourself the following : How does the company plan on expanding the business? What challenges does it see in the future ? Is it hungry ? Has the CEO climbed to the peak and fallen asleep ? You can never get those insights just from the numbers.
Many great companies suffered problems that were only temporary and other problems that were long-term. You must be able to distinguish between the two. Financial statements can tell you only where a company has been. Keeping a sharp eye out and listening hard will tell you where a company is going and if their problems are just speed bumps or devastating potholes. There really is nothing magic about stock success. It takes work, a business mentality and approach, and a respect for the numbers.
That's all there is to it. If you stick with a philosophy that looks at stocks as pieces of a company, ignore the daily ups and downs of the stock market, give yourself a wide margin of safety, and buy companies with strong financials, it's hard to mess up.
Investing isn't that hard, it just requires you to stick to a few principles, keep your head while others around you are losing theirs, and wait for your price.
Warren Buffett summed up stock investing by saying that:
"Stocks are simple. All you do is buy shares in a great Business for less than the business is intrinsically worth, with managers of the highest integrity and ability. Then you own those shares forever."
I couldn't have said it any better..
