Stocks Quotes By Eugene Fama

Markets are efficient, but there are different dimensions of risk and those lead to different dimensions of expected returns. That's what people should be concerned with in their investment decisions and not with whether they can pick stocks, pick winners and losers among the various managers delivering basically the same product. — Eugene Fama

Stocks Quotes By Sheena Iyengar

People will make worse financial decisions for them if they're choosing from a lot of options than if they're choosing from a few options. If they have more options they're more likely to avoid stocks and put all their money in money market accounts, which doesn't even grow at the rate of inflation. — Sheena Iyengar

Some people, through luck and skill, end up with a lot of assets. If you're good at kicking a ball, writing software, investing in stocks, it pays extremely well. — Bill Gates

Stocks Quotes By Jerry Henrie

great stocks to short. — Jerry Henrie

Stocks Quotes By Mark Cuban

The stock market's handling of new technology is kind of a joke. We have seen CNBC, CNNfn, Bloomberg, and the like turn into home-shopping networks for stocks. Fund managers and analysts go on TV and sell what's shiny and easy to sell. — Mark Cuban

Stocks Quotes By John J. Murphy

the yen upturn coincided exactly with the start of a topping process in global stocks. By first quarter 2008, the yen had risen to the highest level in three years against the U.S. dollar as global stocks tumbled. — John J. Murphy

Stocks Quotes By Junot Diaz

For Oscar, high school was the equivalent of a medieval spectacle, like being put in the stocks and forced to endure the peltings and outrages of a mob of deranged half-wits, an experience from which he supposed he should have emerged a better person, but that's not really what happened - and if there were any lessons to be gleaned from the ordeal of those years he never quite figured out what they were. He walked into school every day like the fat lonely nerdy kid he was, and all he could think about was the day of his manumission, when he would at last be set free from its unending horror. Hey, Oscar, are there faggots on Mars? - Hey, Kazoo, catch this. The first time he heard the term moronic inferno he know exactly where it was located and who were its inhabitants. — Junot Diaz

Stocks Quotes By Scott Cook

Mutual funds were created to make investing easy, so consumers wouldn't have to be burdened with picking individual stocks. — Scott Cook

Stocks Quotes By Henry Ward Beecher

Gambling with cards or dice or stocks is all one thing. It's getting money without giving an equivalent for it. — Henry Ward Beecher

Stocks Quotes By Sarah Thornton

Art is more like real estate than stocks. Some Warhols are like studio apartments in midblock buildings with northern exposures, while other Warhols are penthouse properties with 360-degree views. A share of Cisco, however, is always just a share of Cisco. Judging — Sarah Thornton

Stocks Quotes By Peter Lynch

The most important organ in the body as far as the stock market is concerned is the guts, not the head. Anyone can acquire the know-how for analyzing stocks. — Peter Lynch

Stocks Quotes By Jim Cramer

I don't think that's changed at all. I think there are a thousand stocks out there that could make you rich, totally independent of what you do for a living. — Jim Cramer

Stocks Quotes By Anna Kournikova

I've just done a commercial in the U.S. in which I talk about stocks, shares and bonds. Everyone is amazed. They ask me: 'You really know about that stuff or did you just learn it for the commercial?' I tell them I wouldn't do it unless I understood and had an interest. — Anna Kournikova

Stocks Quotes By Jesse Lauriston Livermore

If I buy stocks on Smith's tip I must sell those same stocks on Smith's tip. I am depending on him. Suppose Smith is away on a holiday when the selling time comes around? — Jesse Lauriston Livermore

Stocks Quotes By Marc Faber

Credit expansion and money printing hasn't filtered much to ordinary people. It's boosted asset markets, real estate and stocks. So well-to-do-people have done very well. — Marc Faber

Stocks Quotes By Kenneth Fisher

Fundamentally cheap stocks are often held in low regard by market participants. Something may be tainting their perception in investors' minds. — Kenneth Fisher

Stocks Quotes By Gwyn Morgan

If I were investing in oil and gas stocks, there is one question I would ask CEO's: What portion of your capital is going to have to go in to stay even — Gwyn Morgan

Stocks Quotes By Andrew Sullivan

We've got fuel prices coming down and good travel numbers coming out, so it's not surprising airline stocks are going up. — Andrew Sullivan

Stocks Quotes By John Carey

Literature gives you ideas to think with. It stocks your mind. It does not indoctrinate, because diversity, counter-argument, reappraisal and qualification are its essence. But it supplies the materials for thought. Also, because it is the only art capable of criticism, it encourages questioning, and self-questioning. — John Carey

Stocks Quotes By Warren Buffett

It's quite clear that stocks are cheaper than bonds. I can't imagine anybody having bonds in their portfolio when they can own equities, a diversified group of equities. But people do because they, the lack of confidence. But that's what makes for the attractive prices. If they had their confidence back, they wouldn't be selling at these prices. And believe me, it will come back over time. — Warren Buffett

Stocks Quotes By Herman Melville

There you stand, lost in the infinite series of the sea, with nothing ruffled but the waves. The tranced ship indolently rolls; the drowsy trade winds blow; everything resolves you into languor. For the most part, in this tropic whaling life, a sublime uneventfulness invests you; you hear no news; read no gazettes; extras with startling accounts of commonplaces never delude you into unnecessary excitements; you hear of no domestic afflictions; bankrupt securities; fall of stocks; are never troubled with the thought of what you shall have for dinner - for all your meals for three years and more are snugly stowed in casks, and your bill of fare is immutable. (Moby Dick chap 35 p 153) — Herman Melville

Stocks Quotes By M.E. Thomas

Be greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy.' Easier said than done for the vast majority of stock traders ... On every stock trade there is someone who wants to sell and someone who wants to buy, at least at a particular price ... the person who is selling thinks that she is getting out just in time while the person buying thinks that he is about to make good money.
... The truth is that the market doesn't really reflect some magical perfect valuation of a stock under the efficient market hypothesis. It reflects the mass consensus of how actual individual investors value the stock. It is the sum total of everyone's hopes and fears ... — M.E. Thomas

Stocks Quotes By Edwin Lefevre

As I have said a thousand times, no manipulation can put stocks down and keep them down. — Edwin Lefevre

Stocks Quotes By Peter Lynch

What makes stocks valuable in the long run isn't the market. It's the profitability of the shares in the companies you own. As corporate profits increase, corporations become more valuable and sooner or later, their shares will sell for a higher price. — Peter Lynch

Stocks Quotes By Junot Diaz

Poor Oscar. Without even realizing it he'd fallen into one of those Let's Be Friends Vortexes, the bane of nerdboys everywhere. These relationships were love's version of a stay in the stocks, in you go, plenty of misery guaranteed and what you got out of it besides bitterness and heartbreak nobody knows. Perhaps some knowledge of self and women. — Junot Diaz

Stocks Quotes By Ted Demme

And then we watched an amazing number of movies from the late '60s and '70s, which is my favorite time, and we studied their camera movements, their stocks, the way they lit stuff, the colors they used. — Ted Demme

Stocks Quotes By Mary Stocks, Baroness Stocks

[On women as priests:] It has always seemed very odd to me that this particular sphere of activity should remain a male closed shop, seeing that, to judge from church attendance, women are the more religious sex - while our criminal statistics make quite clear that they are the least wicked. — Mary Stocks, Baroness Stocks

Stocks Quotes By Emily Dickinson

'Tis sweet to know that stocks will stand When we with Daisies lie- That Commerce will continue- And Trades as briskly fly. — Emily Dickinson

Stocks Quotes By Jonathan Haidt

I got interested in the American culture war back in 2004, and it's one of the only growth stocks I've ever invested in. — Jonathan Haidt

Stocks Quotes By Suze Orman

For all your long-term investments, such as retirement accounts that you won't touch for at least ten years, you need a mix of stocks and bonds. Stocks offer the best shot at inflation-beating gains. But stocks don't always go up. That's where bonds come into play: They have less upside potential, but they also do not pack the same risk. — Suze Orman

Stocks Quotes By Peter Lynch

Well, I think the secret is if you have a lot of stocks, some will do mediocre, some will do okay, and if one of two of 'em go up big time, you produce a fabulous result. And I think that's the promise to some people. — Peter Lynch

Stocks Quotes By Malcolm Muggeridge

Writers like Aldous Huxley and George Orwell have imagined the sort of scientific utopia which is coming to pass, but already their nightmare fancies are hopelessly out of date. A vast, air-conditioned, neon-lighted, glass-and-chromium broiler-house begins to take shape, in which geneticists select the best stocks to fertilise, and watch over the developing embryo to ensure that all possibilities of error and distortion are eliminated. — Malcolm Muggeridge

Stocks Quotes By Benjamin Graham

The history of the past fifty years, and longer, indicates that a diversified holding of representative common stocks will prove more profitable over a stretch of years than a bond portfolio, with one important provisio that the shares must be purchased at reasonable market levels, that is, levels that are reasonable in the light of fairly well-defined standards derived from past experience. — Benjamin Graham

Stocks Quotes By Penelope Keith

I don't believe in public humiliation. It went out with the stocks. — Penelope Keith

Stocks Quotes By Henrique M. Simoes

In order to win as a contrarian, you need perfect timing and the perfect size. — Henrique M. Simoes

Stocks Quotes By Jay Leno

Do you have any idea how cheap stocks are? Wall Street is now being called Wall Mart Street — Jay Leno

Stocks Quotes By Jesse Lauriston Livermore

Disregarding the big swing and trying to jump in and out was fatal to me. Nobody can catch all the fluctuations. In a bull market your game is to buy and hold until you believe that the bull market is near its end. To do this you must study general conditions and not tips or special factors affecting individual stocks. — Jesse Lauriston Livermore

Stocks Quotes By Pam Brown

We have become a society where the artist is regarded as a self-indulgent superfluity, and the person who juggles stocks and shares is an essential part of the economy. — Pam Brown

Stocks Quotes By Warren Buffett

I think the worst mistake you can make in stocks is to buy or sell based on current headlines, — Warren Buffett

Stocks Quotes By Brian Skerry

On Cape Cod, great white shark stocks have been growing, or at least becoming more concentrated, because of the multiplying numbers of seals around Monomoy Island. We are fortunate to have such abundance of these sharks in our own waters. Around the globe, we are killing in excess of 100 million sharks each year. — Brian Skerry

Stocks Quotes By John Neff

Investment success does not require glamour stocks or bull markets. — John Neff

Stocks Quotes By Suze Orman

Cash - in savings accounts, short-term CDs or money market deposits - is great for an emergency fund. But to fulfill a long-term investment goal like funding your retirement, consider buying stocks. The more distant your financial target, the longer inflation will gnaw at the purchasing power of your money. — Suze Orman

Stocks Quotes By Robert J. Shiller

Stock prices are likely to be among the prices that are relatively vulnerable to purely social movements because there is no accepted theory by which to understand the worth of stocks ... investors have no model or at best a very incomplete model of behavior of prices, dividend, or earnings, of speculative assets. — Robert J. Shiller

Stocks Quotes By Susan Sontag

The photograph is like a quotation, or a maxim or proverb. Each of us mentally stocks hundreds of photographs, subject to instant recall. — Susan Sontag

Stocks Quotes By Neville Stocks

Sensible conservatism is better than arrogant and stupid fanaticism. — Neville Stocks

Stocks Quotes By Peter Lynch

In the long run, a portfolio of well chosen stocks and/or equity mutual funds will always outperform a portfolio of bonds or a money-market account. In the long run, a portfolio of poorly chosen stocks won't outperform the money left under the mattress. — Peter Lynch

Stocks Quotes By John Milton

Avenge, O Lord, thy slaughtered saints, whose bones Lie scattered on the Alpine mountains cold; Ev'n them who kept thy truth so pure of old When all our fathers worshipped stocks and stones Forget not. — John Milton

Stocks Quotes By James O'Shaughnessy

We continue to advise that investors remain committed to a patient, long-term outlook and that the best way to do well in stocks is to use a disciplined, time-tested strategy that has the benefit of empirically tested results over a variety of market environments. — James O'Shaughnessy

Stocks Quotes By Christopher Dines

Whether someone is a CEO of a major corporation or is serving meals in a diner, failure to adopt a mindful approach will mean that mental and emotional exhaustion could become a habitual condition. Whether someone is stressed about their stocks losing value or being able to pay their bills, the internal underlying conditions of stress and pressure are essentially the same. — Christopher Dines

Stocks Quotes By Peter Lynch

People who want to know how stocks fared on any given day ask, "Where did the Dow close?" I'm more interested in how many stocks went up versus how many went down. These so-called advance/decline numbers paint a more realistic picture. — Peter Lynch

Stocks Quotes By William J. Clinton

People can quarrel with whether we should have more troops in Afghanistan or internationalize Iraq or whatever, but it is incontestable that on the day I left office, there were unaccounted for stocks of biological and chemical weapons. — William J. Clinton

Stocks Quotes By Charlie Munger

The model I like to sort of simplify the notion of what goes on in a market for common stocks is the pari-mutuel system at the racetrack. If you stop to think about it, a pari-mutuel system is a market. Everybody goes there and bets and the odds change based on what's bet. That's what happens in the stock market. — Charlie Munger

Stocks Quotes By Gerald M. Loeb

Stocks are bought on expectations, not facts. — Gerald M. Loeb

Stocks Quotes By Seth Klarman

When people give away stocks based on forced selling or fear that is usually a great opportunity. — Seth Klarman

Stocks Quotes By Robert T. Kiyosaki

It is not real estate, gold, stocks, hard work, or money that makes you rich; it is what you know about real estate, gold, stocks, hard work, and money that makes you rich. Ultimately, it is your financial intelligence that makes you rich. — Robert T. Kiyosaki

Stocks Quotes By Warren Buffett

Stocks of companies selling commodity-like products should come with a warning label: Competition may prove hazardous to human wealth. — Warren Buffett

Stocks Quotes By Charlie Munger

Suppose you were a real estate investor with a 1/3 interest in the best apartment complex in town, the best mall, and the best office building. Would you feel like a poor, undiversified investor? No! But as soon as you get into stocks, people feel this way. Partly, people need to justify their fees. — Charlie Munger

Stocks Quotes By Kiersten White

In this room I have picked which gun was unloaded out of ten options. And then they pulled the trigger on me. I have picked stocks that went on to skyrocket. I have picked which pencil I would shove into Ms. Robertson's ear until she kicked me out for thinking about it. — Kiersten White

Stocks Quotes By Kenneth Langone

I'm a stockholder. I own a lot of stocks. — Kenneth Langone

Stocks Quotes By Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

There is nothing earthly that lasts so well, as money. A man's learning dies with him, as does his virtues fade out of remembrance, but the dividends on the stocks he bequeaths to his children live and keep his memory green. — Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

Stocks Quotes By Kurt Vonnegut

The hand that stocks the drug stores rules the world. Let us start our Republic, with a chain of drug stores, a chain of grocery stores, a chain of gas chambers, and a national game. After that we can write our Constitution. — Kurt Vonnegut

Stocks Quotes By Benjamin Graham

A price decline is of no real importance to the bona fide investor unless it is either very substantial say, more than a third from cost or unless it reflects a known deterioration of consequence in the company's position. In a well-defined bear market many sound common stocks sell temporarily at extraordinary low prices. It is possible that the investor may then have a paper loss of fully 50 per cent on some of his holdings, without any convincing indication that the underlying values have been permanently affected. — Benjamin Graham

Stocks Quotes By Louis Navellier

I simply can't buy as much of some stocks such as Detection Systems or United Education & Software as I'd like because there just aren't all that many shares available. — Louis Navellier

Stocks Quotes By Benjamin Graham

If you are shopping for common stocks, choose them the way you would buy groceries, not the way you would buy perfume. — Benjamin Graham

Stocks Quotes By Kenneth Fisher

To me 'The Big Easy' is shorthand for owning big stocks that are easy for wary investors to buy into. These stocks tend to outperform during the back half of bull markets. — Kenneth Fisher

Stocks Quotes By Mark Cuban

I rarely think the market is right. I believe non dividend stocks aren't much more than baseball cards. They are worth what you can convince someone to pay for it. — Mark Cuban

Stocks Quotes By Seth Klarman

Benjamin Graham wrote, "Those with enterprise haven't the money, and those with money haven't the enterprise, to buy stocks when they are cheap." — Seth Klarman

Stocks Quotes By Peter Lynch

Hold no more stocks than you can remain informed on. — Peter Lynch

Stocks Quotes By Mohnish Pabrai

The only way one should buy stocks is if you understand the underlying business. You stay within the circle of competence. You buy businesses you understand. — Mohnish Pabrai

Stocks Quotes By David Malpass

If stocks double but the dollar loses half its value, who beyond Wall Street are the winners and losers? — David Malpass

Stocks Quotes By Katie MacAlister

It could have been quite worse," he agreed magnanimously.
"And those two guys who felt up your butt while the maintenance dude was working on that hinge were kicked out because they violated the 'must have fondler's consent' rule, or so that pink-haired woman who spoke English said, so at least they won't do that to the next guy trapped in the stocks."
"I will sleep easier knowing that. — Katie MacAlister

Stocks Quotes By Craig Ferguson

Friday's turmoil in global markets looks set to continue to exert a dominant force on the foreign exchange markets. The usual trend when U.S. stocks fall is that the U.S. dollar suffers. — Craig Ferguson

Stocks Quotes By Jodi Picoult

The thing about a mom is that she's always there. She's the one who rubs your back when you have the flu, who manages to notice you have no clean underwear and does your wash for you, who stocks the refrigerator with all the foods you love without having to ask. The thing about a mom is that you never imagine taking care of her, instead of the other way around. — Jodi Picoult

Stocks Quotes By B.C. Forbes

A young financial writer once brought ridicule upon himself by stating that a certain company had nothing to commend it except excellent earnings. Well, there are companies whose earnings are excellent but whose stocks I would never recommend. In selecting investments, I attach prime importance to the men behind them. I'd rather buy brains and character than earnings. Earnings can be good one year and poor the next. But if you put your money into securities run by men combining conspicuous brains and unimpeachable character, the likelihood is that the financial results will prove satisfactory. — B.C. Forbes

Stocks Quotes By Bulent Ecevit

So we are fulfilling our task in preventing serious armament stocks in Iraq within our possibilities. — Bulent Ecevit

Stocks Quotes By Paul Watson

North American cats eat more fish than all the world's seals put together, yet we lay the blame on the seals for the declining fish stocks. — Paul Watson

Stocks Quotes By Bill Gates

If you've found some way to educate yourself about engineering, stocks, or whatever it is, good employers will have some type of exam or interview and see a sample of your work. — Bill Gates

Stocks Quotes By Daniel Pauly

Small-scale fisheries should not be favoured over large-scale operations ebcause of romantic notions of rugged small operators battling both the elements and anonymous corporations. [They ought to be supported] because of the scientific evidence available to confirm the common-sense inference that local fishers, if given privileged access, will tend to avoid trashing their local stocks, while foreign fishers do not have such motivation. — Daniel Pauly

Stocks Quotes By Warren Buffett

Only those who will be sellers of equities in the near future should be happy at seeing stocks rise. Prospective purchasers should much prefer sinking prices. — Warren Buffett

Stocks Quotes By Sam Walton

Some families sell their stocks off a little bit at a time to live high, and then - boom - somebody takes them over, and it all goes down the drain. — Sam Walton

Stocks Quotes By Henrique M. Simoes

The best traders have trading habits, daily routines they repeat day after day. — Henrique M. Simoes

Stocks Quotes By John C. Bogle

Index funds eliminate the risks of individual stocks, market sectors, and manager selection. Only stock market risk remains. — John C. Bogle

Stocks Quotes By David Dreman

Bank One has got one of the best credit card divisions, ... The perception of investors is that financial services stocks are affected by interest rates and they're not. — David Dreman

Stocks Quotes By Howard Warren Buffett

As long as you have markets, you'll have excesses. People went crazy with tulip bulbs. They went crazy with the South Sea Bubble, they went crazy internet stocks, they went crazy with the uranium stocks back when I was first getting started. I mean, you know, you're not going to change the human animal. And the human animal really doesn't get a lot smarter. — Howard Warren Buffett

Stocks Quotes By Max Boot

It was not always the case, of course, that navies paid for themselves. In wartime, costs often exceeded revenues, and those deficits grew over time as fleets and armies got bigger. But this was hardly an insurmountable obstacle for the most dynamic economies in the world. The United Provinces and England were able to borrow all they needed to underwrite their defense budgets. The pressures of war gave a powerful impetus to the growth of stocks, bonds, loans, and paper currencies during the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries and helped to turn Amsterdam and then London into international financial centers. To take one example, the Bank of England was established in 1694 to raise funds to allow England to wage war against France. — Max Boot

Stocks Quotes By Warren Buffett

Stocks are the only thing that people are happy to buy when the price goes up. — Warren Buffett

Stocks Quotes By Peter Lynch

Logic is the subject that has helped me most in picking stocks, if only because it taught me to identify the peculiar illogic of Wall Street. Actually Wall Street thinks just as the Greeks did. The early Greeks used to sit around for days and debate how many teeth a horse has. They thought they could figure it out just by sitting there, instead of checking the horse. A lot of investors sit around and debate whether a stock is going up, as if the financial muse will give them the answer, instead of checking the company. — Peter Lynch

Stocks Quotes By Andrew Mellon

Liquidate labor, liquidate stocks, liquidate farmers, liquidate real estate. It will purge the rottenness out of the system. High costs of living and high living will come down. People will work harder, live a more moral life. Values will be adjusted, and enterprising people will pick up from less competent people. — Andrew Mellon

Stocks Quotes By Jim Cramer

Picking the right stocks is one of the hardest parts of investing, and every night on Mad Money, I try to take some of that burden off your shoulders. — Jim Cramer

Stocks Quotes By Steve Jobs

Team, it turned out that Michael Dell wasn't perfect at predicting the future. Based on today's stock market close, Apple is worth more than Dell. Stocks go up and down and things may be different tomorrow but I thought it was worth a moment of reflection today. — Steve Jobs

Stocks Quotes By Benjamin Graham

The intelligent investor gets interested in big growth stocks not when they are at their most popular - but when something goes wrong. — Benjamin Graham

Stocks Quotes By Peter Lynch

You have to keep your priorities straight if you plan to do well in stocks. — Peter Lynch

Stocks Quotes By Peter Lynch

Investing in stocks is an art, not a science, and people who've been trained to rigidly quantify everything have a big disadvantage. — Peter Lynch

Stocks Quotes By Steven Pressfield

Tutors are usually shaggy, ill-groomed junior dons who smoke and drink to excess and never leave their rooms except for illicit sexual liaisons or to replenish their stocks of tobacco and spirits. A — Steven Pressfield

Stocks Quotes By Winston Churchill

The unnatural and increasingly rapid growth of the feeble-minded and insane classes, coupled as it is with steady restriction among all the thrifty, energetic and superior stocks constitutes a national and race danger which is impossible to exaggerate. I feel that the source from which the stream of madness is fed should be cut off and sealed before another year has passed. — Winston Churchill

Stocks Quotes By Lawrence Kudlow

If stocks are optimistic, then so am I. — Lawrence Kudlow

Stocks Quotes By Michael Burry

When I stand on my special-issue "Intelligent Investor" ladder and peer out over the frenzied crowd, I see very few others doing the same. Many stocks remain overvalued, and speculative excess - both on the upside and on the downside - is embedded in the frenzy around stocks of all stripes. And yes, I am talking about March 2001, not March 2000. — Michael Burry
