What Doesn’t Matter – The Massive Image




One of many causes folks within the funding group respect Howard Marks a lot is he says what he believes and lets the chips fall the place they might. His observations are at all times insightful, and through the years have becomeopular, however what actually set him aside have been his large contrarian observations, such because the Amazon dot Bomb in 1999.

I didn’t get to his latest What Actually Issues? till this week, however it’s traditional Marks, stuffed with insights, large and small.

His first e-book was titled “The Most Essential Factor,” however I recognize the “inversion” right here, occupied with the entire issues that DON’T matter:

What Doesn’t Matter

The Buying and selling Mentality

Brief-Time period Efficiency



Marks provides: “What actually issues is the efficiency of your holdings over the following 5 or ten years (or extra) and the way the worth on the finish of the interval compares to the quantity you invested and to your wants.”

It’s best to delve into the dialogue in its entirety — it’s properly value your time.


Again with extra wonky employment goodness tomorrow…
