What Most Good Investors Do

I rarely trade. Brokers do not like me because I am so inactive. You know, I might buy something and the broker 10 years later asks: "Are you ever going to sell?" No, I am not a very good customer because I trade very, very rarely. Once a month or once a quarter.

If you are a short term trader, there are lot of ideas, but I am not. So there are not a lot of ideas that are good ideas that people can find. Most good investors, they don`t do anything most of the time. They just wait, they wait for their investments to mature or they wait till they can find something new.
