Value Investing: Buy Now or Wait for a Dump in Price?

in #steemleo3 years ago

When you're investing and looking for valuable companies that will be a great investment for the long-term, then you must change a few of the ways that you tend to look at your investments.

One of the many "switches" that must be flipped relates to the idea of waiting for a price decline to buy.

Sure, it may make sense under certain circumstances to wait to make a purchase of a great company.

With that in mind, I still believe that the vast majority of circumstances would serve well to the investor to purchase with this value in the long-term mindset.

Buffet once said in a 1990's shareholder meeting that a great company today is going to be a great company in 30 years.

If you truly believe in your investment on a 30 year horizon, then it shouldn't matter whether you buy today or 2 years from now. Regardless of whether you can reasonably expect a price decline.

Playing the market timing can work in some cases. But don't be fooled. It's a speculative game.
