What a 30-Year Trading Pro Revealed to Me Yesterday

The Last Stock I'll Ever Own

Written by Keith Kohl
Posted August 20, 2016

I didn’t make my first trade when I was 11 years old like Warren Buffett. I didn’t even make it when I was a teenager like Peter Lynch.

It wasn’t until I was well into my 20s that I started building my portfolio, and I felt late to the game.

But here’s the most important part: we all start somewhere.

Even you.

And yet, the real secret is that you don’t have to be a legendary investor to secure your family’s financial future... you don’t have to be Warren Buffett.

Truth is, he would prefer to be you.

Trading Like the Pros

One of my favorite quips from Buffett was from an interview he did back in 1999... and it sums up the advantages you have over him!

He said:

If I was running $1 million today, or $10 million for that matter, I’d be fully invested. Anyone who says that size does not hurt investment performance is selling. The highest rates of return I’ve ever achieved were in the 1950s. I killed the Dow. You ought to see the numbers. But I was investing peanuts then. It’s a huge structural advantage not to have a lot of money. I think I could make you 50% a year on $1 million. No, I know I could. I guarantee that.

Let that sink in for a minute.

I know your average investor isn’t “running with $1 million” nowadays.

His point, however, remains true to this day.

At least, it’s true if you're serious about being a long-term investor.

You don’t get rattled when there’s blood in the streets. You don’t panic when a piece of news doesn’t go your way. Emotional investing is one of the biggest hurdles the average investor has to overcome.

Smaller investors like us aren’t constrained in the same ways that the professionals are. Think of the frustration most professionals feel being unable to have free reign to manage their assets, especially when they’re unable to tap into smaller opportunities due to them having less liquidity.

Their hands are tied when it comes to investing. They can’t afford to be contrarian. And they can’t seize the same opportunities that you and I can.

And they hate you for it.

So why not make them hate you more?

The Last Stock I’ll Ever Own

Here’s the gist — don’t pay attention to what the market is doing (or what it’s not doing). That comes straight from Ben Graham’s playbook.

Recently, I asked a 30-year trading pro about what the average investor can do to benefit from these under-utilized advantages.

You know him, too. His name is Charles Mizrahi, and believe me, he’s seen it all on the trading floors of Wall Street.

It wasn’t some ancient investing secret that he divulged over a few beers yesterday... it was the simplicity of how easy investing actually is — if you follow one simple set of rules.

He said you don’t need to buy a basket of the largest blue-chip companies, or plug numbers into some complex algorithm, or even throw all of your hard-earned money into a fund that will gouge you with fees (especially this last one!).

Throw it all out, he told me... every last bit of it.

Don’t over-think things, because picking that winning stock is easier than you think. He laid it all out there for me, breaking things down to the very basics.

But listen, it’s not enough to hear me tell you about it.

I want YOU to hear it straight from him including the ticker to the last stock I’ll ever own.

Later this week, Charles will be conducting a live webinar, and since you're a member of Energy and Capital, I’ve convinced my publisher to let you have free access to it.

You can see the list of his next speaking dates by clicking here.

All you have to do is just register for a specific time slot. Several will be offered, so you can pick whichever is most convenient to your schedule. And yes, replays will be available in case you miss it.

I strongly recommend you take a few moments right now and sign up for Charles’s live webinar.

Again, everything you need for your free access to this event is right here.

Until next time,
