If your experience has been anything like mine I'm sure you'll agree investing in a hot tip is a bad idea.
Something I am sure has also cost you a lot of money.
Ignore it like the plague
This has resulted in me ignoring all investment tips like the plague. And what I recommend you do as well.
Read about my experience here
You can read about one of my experiences with an investment tip you can read the article Do you also get investment advice from friends and neighbours
We like a good story
The problem with investment tips are...
Are you a classic value investor?
Do you get excited the lower the share price of an undervalued good company falls?

If you are a long time reader of my newsletters you will know that I started investing in the worst possible way.
Because of this I made every possible mistake an investor can make.

Here are a few articles you may want to look at where I wrote to you about retirement:
What is money death and how you can avoid it
Living knowing your retirement fund is bankrupt
Slow motion train wreck – German demographics
A retirement plan for my father
Start as early as you can
I am thus very happy to post an insightful article written by Thomas Nashng at PensionReviews.com that shows you why it’s so important for you to start saving for retirement as soon as you can.
Dear Fellow Investor When you go fishing you look for the most comfortable spot next to the river or the sea or do you go to where the most fish are caught and start fishing there? You of course go where the fish are. Not what most investors do But [...]
Do you use a single valuation ratio (only price to earnings for example) when selecting companies for your portfolio? If so you may want to reconsider. The problem if you use only one valuation ratio is that it can, depending on market situation, lead to you significantly underperforming the market [...]
Neither have I but this is how The Economist described one of the few hedge fund managers worth following. That is if you can find something about him because he keeps such a low profile. I am of course talking about Seth Klarman founder of the Baupost Group which [...]
What Internet browser do you use?
