You might have noticed that I am now looking at the long term returns of stocks. Sometimes it is a very long term review as for stocks I own I often have data going into the 1980’s. I have recently read too many stocks reports on why you should buy a stock and the coverage is only the past year or sometimes the last quarter. I feel you have to base buying a stock on more than that.
I have kept reporting on the relatively cost of stocks. I have found that it makes a big difference to your long term return what you pay for a stock. You may not be able to get a stock cheap but buying it at a reasonable rather than expensive price can really make a difference.
The last thing that I want to mention that I am also focusing on is debt. A number of economist feel that company’s with too much debt will fair badly in the next recession.
