1. When you enter the room be aware of your feelings

"Investing success does not depend on your intelligence. You need to have the courage to resist temptations that lead other people to get into trouble. Warren Buffett, Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, is an investor's mentor and role model who is quoted as declaring this.

One bonus investment tip before we get into the details our portfolios: We suggest not investing more than 10% of your portfolio in individual stocks. The rest should be put into index funds that are low-cost. The only way to save money over the coming five years isn't to invest it in stocks. Buffett was talking about investors who let their heads and not their guts to guide their investing decisions. Trading overactivity that is triggered by emotions could be one of the primary ways that investors can ruin their portfolio returns.

2. Choose the right companies and avoid ticker symbols
It's easy for us to overlook that beneath the alphabet soup stuffed with stocks, which crawl across the bottom every CNBC broadcast is a legitimate business. Stock picking shouldn't be an abstract idea. Don't forget: Owning an interest in a company's stock is a way to become a part of the business.

"Remember buying shares in an investment company is similar to becoming a shareholder in the company in question."

When you are screening potential business partners, you will find a lot of data. But, it's much easier to concentrate on most important details when you're wearing the "business buyer" hat.

3. Don't be afraid during periods of anxiety
Investors are often enticed by the prospect of change their relationship with their stocks. But making heat-of-the-moment decisions can result in the classic investing gaffe: buying high and selling low. Journaling can be a useful tool. Track what you think makes each stock worth your time and write down any circumstances that could justify you to separate. You can take this as an example:

Why I'm buying: Spell out the things you think are attractive about the company and the opportunity you see for the future. What are your goals? What are your top priorities? And what milestones are you using to gauge the company's progress. List the possible pitfalls and mark which ones would be game-changers and which could be indicators of a temporary setback.

What could cause me to sell? Sometimes, there are good reasons for a split. The section in your journal should include an investment agreement. It should explain what you'd do to make the stock more sellable. It's not about stock price movement particularly not in the short-term, but fundamental changes to the company that impact its capacity to grow over the long-term. Examples are: A significant customer goes away or the CEO's position changes and a new competitor appears or your investment thesis does not materialize after a reasonable time.

4. You can build gradually your position
The superpower of investors is timing, not time. Stocks are bought by successful investors who anticipate being and be rewarded with an increase in share price and dividends. over time, or even for decades. It also means you can purchase a slow-moving product. There are three ways to decrease price volatility:

Dollar-cost Average: Though it may sound complicated but it's not. Dollar-cost averaging is the process of investing a set amount in regular intervals. For instance, each week or month. The money can be used to purchase more shares in the event that the price drops and less shares if it increases. In the end, it's equal to the price you pay. Online brokerages allow investors to create an automated investing schedule.

Buy in threes: "Buying in threes" is a type of dollar-cost average. It can help you avoid the dreadful feeling of not getting the desired results from the beginning. Divide the amount you wish to purchase by three, then select three points to buy shares. They can be regular (e.g., monthly, or quarterly) or they can be determined by performance and events. For instance, you could buy shares prior to the product's launch and put the next three percent of your funds into the product if it's a success or redirect it elsewhere in the event that it isn't.

Purchase "the basket" Are you unable to decide which company within a particular field will win the long run? Take a look at all of them! Purchase a range of stocks to ease the stress of finding "the the one". Having a stake in every company that are deemed to be worthy in your analysis means you won't lose out if one company takes off, and you'll be able to make use of the gains that you earn from the winner to make up for any losses. This strategy will also help you identify the company that is "the one" and allow you to expand your stake if desired.

5. Don't trade too much
You should be checking the stocks every month, when you receive quarterly reports. However, it's not easy to keep an eye on the scoreboard. This could lead you to overreact to short-term situations. You might be focused more on the price of shares than company value and feel like you have to act when nothing is needed.

Find out the reason behind a sudden price rise in your stock. Are collateral damages due to the market's reaction to an unrelated incident affecting your stock? Does there appear to be any shift in the company's underlying business? It may have an impact on your outlook for the future.

The noise of the moment, like blaring headlines or price fluctuations aren't really important to the performance of the company over time. It is how investors respond to the noise that matters the most. This is why your investing journal can be a helpful guideline to help you get through the inevitable fluctuations and ups that come along with the investment in stocks.
