Investing: I try not to pay much attention to other people
"I’m afraid I don’t pay much attention to other people. I’m pretty much a
loner. I have found in my career that when I listen to other people I
usually make mistakes and lose money. So I try not to pay much attention
to other people. There are plenty of smart investors in the world, but I
just don’t move in those circles." - in IB Times
