Series One- Greed & Pullback

  • Greedy
  • Pulback

Saying “I’ll be greedy when others are fearful” is much easier than actually doing it.

The Very famous and commonly used by Warren Buffet:

“Be Fearful When Others Are Greedy and Greedy When Others Are Fearful” 

It is evident that by the above saying that buffet did not buy any single stock of technology company in tech era bubble of 1990-2000. Tech Companies stock were just rocketing like 10X,20X,40X in short span of time without fundamentals supporting them.He saw the fundamentals and fundamentals were worst ,these technolgy and dot com companies were Burning cash and loosing money. Some fund Managers started to predict that investing with buffet would not create wealth and instead the will be leftover in these rally.                                                                                                  But in 2000-2001 Dotcom bubble broke and when the dust settled buffet investments were beating higher returns then any funds in US and many funds just lost 80-99% Wealth. He underperformed   for almost decade but after 2000 he was the winner where everyone lost 90% He gained more then 30-50% in subsequent years .

Markets go through at least one big pullback every year, and one massive one every decade. Get used to it. It’s just what they do.

Pullback here means downfall, pull down from peak prices.
