1. In the front Be aware of your emotions

"Investing success doesn't depend on your intellect. It is essential to possess the courage to resist urges that can cause others to fall into trouble. Warren Buffett is chairman of Berkshire Hathaway. He is an accomplished and wealthy investor who acts as an inspiration to investors seeking long-term, market-beating , and wealth-building yields.

Before we begin Here's a helpful investment tip: We suggest that you don't invest over 10% of your money in individual stocks. The remainder should be a diversified mix of index mutual funds with low costs. Money you need within the next five years shouldn't be invested in stocks in any way. Buffett refers to investors who trust their heads, and not their guts, drive their investment decisions. Actually, investors who trade too much based on emotions are one of the biggest ways to hurt their portfolio's performance.

2. Do not choose ticker symbols, instead look for companies
It's easy to forget that underneath the alphabet soup of stock quotes that trawl across each CNBC broadcast is a real business. Stock picking is not an abstract idea. Remember that owning a share in the company's stock is an opportunity to become part of the company.

"Remember that purchasing shares of a company's stocks is a way to become a part-owner of the company."

You'll find an overwhelming amount of data when you look for potential business partners. When you have a "business buyer' hat, it's much easier to pick the right things. You'll want to know about the business, its position in the marketplace, its competitors, long-term prospects, and whether it could improve the existing portfolio of businesses you have.

3. Don't panic during periods of anxiety
Investors can be tempted to alter their relationship with their stocks. But, taking quick decisions in the heat of the moment can lead investors to make common investment mistakes such as buying high and selling at a low price. Journaling is an excellent tool. Record what makes each investment worth the risk of making a commitment. Once you've got this information, you can write down the factors that justify a split. Take this example:

Why I'm buying What do you appreciate about the company and the potential opportunities you can see coming up in the future. What are your expectations of the company? What are the most important metrics and which milestones do you intend to be using to evaluate the company's progress? Catalog the potential pitfalls and note which would be game-changers and which would be signs of a temporary setback.

What will cause me to sell? Sometimes, there are good reasons to break in two. It is possible to create an investing Prenup that explains the reasons behind selling the stock. It's not just about fluctuations in stock prices, especially not in the immediate future and more to the fundamental shifts that might impact the company's ability to grow over time. An example: A business is unable to retain a major client. The successor to the CEO takes the company in a different direction. Also, your investment strategy doesn't prove to be effective after a reasonable amount of time.

4. As you build up your positions, gradually.
The most powerful asset of an investor is their timing, not the time. Stocks are purchased by the most successful investors due to the fact that they believe they will receive rewards -- such as share price appreciation, dividends and dividends, etc. for a long time or even for decades. That means you have the option of taking your time in buying, as well. Here are three strategies to reduce the chance of experiencing price fluctuation.

Dollar-cost average can be described as: Although this sounds complicated but it's not. Dollar-cost Averaging is when you invest a predetermined amount of money over a regular time period that could be every week or once per month. It buys more shares in times of stock price decline and less shares in times when the price rises, however it also equals the price you pay. A few online brokerage companies allow investors to create an automated investment schedule.

Thirds buy in: Similar to dollar-cost averaging "buying in threes" helps you avoid the morale-crushing experience of unsatisfactory results right out of the start. Divide the amount you want by three, and then select three points to purchase shares. They can be regular (e.g., monthly, or quarterly) or they can be based on performance and company events. You can buy shares ahead of the launch of a new product and then take the remainder to divert funds from other sources, when it's successful.

Buy "the Basket": Uncertain which companies are long-term winners in a given industry? Buy all of them Buying a basket of stocks removes the pressure of picking "the right one." It's simple to put stakes in all stocks that meet your analysis. If one of them is successful, you won't be left out, and you could make up for losses by gaining from that winning stock. This strategy can help you determine which company is "the one" and you may make a move to double your stake if want to.

5. Beware of overactivity
It is a good idea to review your stock at least once every quarter. This includes when you receive quarterly reports. It's hard to keep track of your scoreboard. This can lead to reacting too quickly to the latest news, focusing on share price instead of the value of the company, and feeling that you have to act when no action is warranted.

Learn the reason behind the sudden price change of a stock. Is collateral damage resulted by the market in response to an incident that is not related to your stock? Did something change in the underlying business of your company? It may affect the long-term outlook of your company.

Rarely is short-term noise (blaring headlines, short-term price swings) important to how a company you've picked does over the long run. It's the way investors react to noise that matters. This is the place where your investment journal, a quiet voice that can speak for you in times of uncertainty, will help you keep going through the inevitable dips and ups that come with stock investments.
