    • The Importance of Investing in Businesses with Sustainable Competitive AdvantagesInvesting in businesses with strong barriers to entry and pricing power can result in higher returns and long-term success, even if initial purchase prices may seem expensive. Focus on owning great businesses rather than just good ones.

      Investing in a business with a sustainable competitive advantage is key to earning high returns. A competitive advantage is the company's ability to generate excess returns by having barriers to entry. Such businesses have negative working capital, low fixed asset intensity, and real pricing power with strong brand names and intellectual property. Great businesses earn high returns on incremental invested capital and have low capital requirements, making them cash rich. Warren Buffet emphasizes on moats i.e. wide sustainable entry barriers and pricing power as the main pillars of his investment strategy. It is better to own a great business at an expensive-looking price than a fair business at a great price because long-term returns and the stock price trend towards the return on invested capital and business value respectively.

    • Long-Term Value Investing: Focusing on Returns Instead of Industry GrowthWhen investing for long-term value, prioritize a company's high return on invested capital over its industry growth rate. Look for businesses that can reinvest earnings at high rates of return and prioritize quality over valuations.

      The market values certainty and longevity of growth, and companies that can promise years of sustainable earnings growth are rewarded disproportionately. It is important to focus on high return on capital within a business rather than high growth rate within the industry. The holy grail of long-term value investing is when a business can reinvest a large portion of its earnings at high rates of return, and it doesn’t have to send a check to shareholders because its investment opportunities are so great. It’s not just high return on invested capital, but also high return on incremental invested capital that drives value creation. The quality of the businesses purchased matters more than the valuations at which they are purchased over the long run, as the stock returns tend to trend towards the internal returns of the business.

    • Investing in High Return Businesses in India's Growing MarketInvesting in companies with a proven ability to scale and firm customer focus can capture the bulk of wealth creation in India's market as competition eats away excess returns.

      Investing in businesses that earn high return on incremental capital significantly improves the probability of achieving above-average returns over the long term. Trillions of dollars are going to be added to India's GDP, and investing in well-managed companies that have a proven ability to scale will capture the bulk of the upcoming wealth creation boom in India's stock market. Capitalism is just brutal, and competition eats away excess returns. Only a few businesses enjoy excess returns by creating structural competitive advantages or economic moats. Strong cultures that focus on delivering a strong value proposition to customers relative to their competitors are another underappreciated source of moat. As investors, we look for companies that are fanatically obsessed with the well-being of their customers and empathize with them more than their competitors do.

    • The Importance of Objective and Calm Mindset in InvestmentSuccessful investing requires studying human behavior and making wise decisions during periods of volatility. A calm and objective mindset is crucial, and a slow economy with low interest rates favor stock market growth.

      To be a successful investor, it is important to keep an objective and calm mind during periods of extreme market behavior. By studying human behavior during times of panic and exuberance, investors can make wise decisions and buy great companies at a discount. Volatility of the mind is far riskier than volatility of the stock price, and our lifetime achievement as an investor will be determined by how we conduct ourselves during these periods. Liquidity and interest rates also play major roles in asset prices and stock market cycles, and a dull, slow economy with the Federal Reserve trying to get it going is the best environment for stocks.

    • Long-term perspective and focus on high-quality companies can help navigate unpredictable market cycles.Investing in great businesses with a long-term perspective and focusing on owner's earnings can help investors benefit from the market's tendency to undervalue high-quality companies.

      Market cycles are unpredictable, and it's impossible to know when they will end. The best strategy is to invest in great businesses with a long-term perspective. High-quality companies survive and even improve during crises, while bad ones are destroyed. The availability heuristic makes people focus on certain issues, leading to a self-reinforcing cycle of greed or fear in the stock market. Market valuations or data points should be treated with skepticism. It's crucial to focus on owner's earnings instead of accounting earnings, which can be understated. Overall, emotion drives the market, making it difficult to predict, but patient investors can benefit from the market's tendency to undervalue high-quality companies.

    • Diversify or Concentrate? Understanding Risk and Uncertainty in InvestingTo maximize returns, study financial history and recognize when the market is irrational. Don't discount future free cash flows and pay attention to serial acquirers and value-creating entrepreneurs. Understand individual company risks for effective portfolio management.

      Diversifying your portfolio may reduce overall risk, but it also reduces potential reward. Concentrating on a few high-quality stocks can lead to better returns. Risk and uncertainty are not the same, and profitable investment opportunities can be highly uncertain but have minimal risk of permanent capital loss. To find inefficiencies, you need to study financial history and recognize when the market is being irrational. The ability to delay gratification is essential to avoid heavily discounting future free cash flows. Serial acquirers should not be ignored, and entrepreneurs who learn from mistakes and take value-creating initiatives deserve credit. Understanding individual company risks is critical for effective portfolio management and position sizing.

    • Strategy for Efficient and Effective Stock InvestingInvest in a handful of stocks that you know well and have confidence in. Allocate your portfolio using the Kelly formula to consider winning probability, potential losses, and returns. Focus on increasing intrinsic value for long-term gains.

      It's better to concentrate on a handful of individual stocks that you know really well and have confidence in, rather than owning a large number of stocks you only somewhat know. Efficiency in investing refers to appropriate allocation, while effectiveness involves picking the right stock. Purchase stocks that are mispriced, and have a well-founded view that is meaningfully different than the market consensus. To determine the optimal portion of your portfolio to allocate to a bet, use the Kelly formula to consider both the probability of winning and losing the bet, as well as how much you win or lose. It's important to have variant perception and below-average potential losses coupled with above-average potential returns. Focus on increasing the intrinsic value of your portfolio and let the market give you gains according to its own schedule.

    • The Keys to Successful Long-Term InvestingPatience, process, and sticking to personal philosophies are crucial for long-term investing success. Identifying niches and avoiding ruin are important, with returns based on intelligent effort and leverage used sparingly. Luck is short-term, skill dominates long-term.

      In investing, it's important to have a patient, glass half-full approach, understanding that every bust in one area of the market establishes the foundation for a boom in another. The best long-term performers focus on process over outcome, using an investment process that allows them to remain faithful to their personal investment philosophies through thick and thin. Luck is a factor in the short term, but skill dominates over the long run. Successful investors identify their niches and stick to them, evolving over time. The rate of returns should be dependent on the amount of intelligent effort investors are willing and able to bring to bear on their task. Avoiding ruin is of utmost importance, and leverage should be used sparingly.

    • The Value of Holding Ample Liquid Cash for Investment PurposesHolding ample liquid cash reduces the risk of force selling assets during market turbulence and provides valuable optionality for investors to make bargain purchases when opportunities arise. Prudent investment involves avoiding single points of failure and non-insurable risks while prioritizing the quality of the business and management integrity. The key to investment success is avoiding foolish decisions and preparing for black swan events.

      Cash is a call option on opportunity and a much underappreciated asset. Holding ample liquid cash puts a valuable optionality in the hands of investors to make bargain purchases when opportunities arise, and also makes them anti-fragile. Having a lot of cash decreases our risk of being a force seller of assets during a period of market turbulence and sharp drawdown. The downside risk must always be taken into account, and avoiding single points of failure and non-insurable risks is essential for prudent investment. Quality of the business and the integrity of the management matter the most in creating and retaining long-term wealth. The key to a lifetime of investment success is not to make brilliant or complex decisions but to avoid doing foolish things. Black swan events are always a risk.

    • Mitigating Risk in Unpredictable TimesWhen investing, focus on high-quality companies with stability, strong advantages, smart capital allocation, growth mindset, and a culture of intelligent risk-taking. Read history instead of relying on predictions, and share knowledge to build a supportive community.

      The COVID-19 pandemic shows the difficulty of making predictions and the interdependence of our world, which means that risk can happen very quickly. We need to be cautious about assuming that we cannot lose and considering worst-case scenarios. The biggest risks are often those we cannot anticipate. To mitigate the risk of ruin in investing, we should focus on high-quality companies with staying power, including stable product characteristics, strong competitive advantages, prudent capital allocation, a growth mindset, and a corporate culture of intelligent risk-taking. Such companies have higher longevity and intrinsic value. A good way to prepare for the future is to read history rather than rely too heavily on forecasts. We should share knowledge with friends to foster a supportive community.

    Bull markets don't die of old age, but do they die of coronavirus?

    Bull markets don't die of old age, but do they die of coronavirus?
    Bull markets don't die of old age, we've been told countless times in recent years, but do they die of coronavirus?

    That is the question that rattled investors are asking themselves after an astonishing week in which the FTSE 100 has fallen 12 per cent.

    Stock markets around the world have sold off, as investors dump shares driven by a combination of the fear that a crash is finally arriving and the forecasts that coronavirus and attempts to stop it spreading will cause a global slowdown.

    The UK stock market is down 15 per cent from its mid-January recent peak - what should investors do at times like these?

    On this week's podcast, Simon Lambert, Lee Boyce and Georgie Frost discuss why coronavirus has hit markets so hard, why investors should not act rashly out of fear and panic, and consider the advice from investing experts.

    Elsewhere, we reveal how we helped a couple get their £25,000 savings back after their phone number was ported away without consent.

    Things get a little silly as we talk about how to deal with those difficult and bizarre interview questions that don't have a correct answer.

    And finally, the 100 most iconic cars of all time have been named in a survey voted for by Boundless members – previously known as the Civil Service Motoring Association. We reveal what topped the charts.
