You can’t just buy one share… because, unfortunately, that one share might be Steinhoff… spread out your investments…— Warren Ingram, Galileo Capital
You have to do a large amount of homework… Spread the workload… There are investment forums… You need to read a lot… Read the companies’ annual reports… If you’re not going to do that; use the stock broking account to buy Exchange Traded Funds…— Warren Ingram, Galileo Capital
Only make five investment decisions per year… You’ll win if you transact less… You need to look at this stuff [only] once a month… Buy with the view of never selling…— Warren Ingram, Galileo Capital
