by Joel Tillinghast

In Big Money Thinks Small, veteran fund manager Joel Tillinghast shows investors how to avoid making these mistakes. He offers a set of simple but crucial steps to successful investing, including:

  • Know yourself, how you arrive at decisions, and how you might be susceptible to self-deception.
  • Make decisions based on your own expertise, and do not invest in what you don’t understand.
  • Select only trustworthy and capable colleagues and collaborators.
  • Learn how to identify and avoid investments with inherent flaws.
  • Always search for bargains, and never forget that the first responsibility of an investor is to identify mispriced stocks.
