Sayings on Stock Markets by Peter Lynch:

Never invest in any idea you can’t illustrate with a crayon.

The key to making money in stocks is not to get scared out of them.

Everyone has the brainpower to follow the stock market. If you made it through fifth-grade math, you can do it.

Although it’s easy to forget sometimes, a share is not a lottery ticket… it’s part-ownership of a business.

 Don’t bottom fish.

Everyone has the brainpower to follow the stock market. If you made it through fifth-grade math, you can do it.

Go for a business that any idiot can run – because sooner or later, any idiot probably is going to run it.

The person that turns over the most rocks wins the game. And that’s always been my philosophy.

You get recessions, you have stock market declines. If you don’t understand that’s going to happen, then you’re not ready, you won’t do well in the markets.

You can lose money in a very short time but it takes a long time to make money.

The stock market really isn’t a gamble, as long as you pick good companies that you think will do well, and not just because of the stock price.

You can make a lot of money from the stock market, but then again you can also lose money, as we proved.

You have to research the company before you put your money into it.

When you invest in the stock market you should always diversify.

Never fall in love with a stock; always have an open mind.

You shouldn’t just pick a stock – you should do your homework.

The investor’s chief problem-and even his worst enemy is likely to be himself.
