1.

Stock prices & business profits are not at all linked in the short-term, but they are 100% linked in the long-term

Watch the business, not the stock

2.

It's a FAR bigger mistake to sell a mega-winner early than it is to hold a mega-loser too long.

3.

Compounding pays off the most in the out-years

Optimize for longevity first, everything else second

4.

In the beginning, focus the vast majority of your effort on boosting your income & savings rate

5.

Analysis paralysis is real

Once you know enough, decide.

6.

The P/E ratio is only useful when a company is fully optimized for profits (stage 4)

It's most deceiving in stages 3 & 5

7.

If you rarely sell, your portfolio will concentrate itself

8.

Invest with CEOs that under-promise and over-deliver

Avoid CEOs that do the inverse

9.

Stop-loss orders should really be called Stop-Compounding Orders

10.

"Do nothing" is almost always the right move.
