1. The state of your emotions must be monitored at the door

"Investing success doesn't correlate to intelligence... it's a matter of temperament. have to have the ability to control the urges that can get you into trouble with investing." Warren Buffett (chairman of Berkshire Hathaway) is a renowned investor and mentor, who has been quoted many times for being a wise individual when it comes to long-term wealth creation and market-beating returns.

Before we start Here's a helpful advice for investors: We recommend to not invest more than 10% of your money in individual stocks. The rest should be put into low-cost index mutual fund funds. Anything you'll need to have in the next five years shouldn't be invested in stocks at all. Buffett is a reference to investors who let their minds drive their investing decisions, and not their heart. In fact those who invest too much based on emotions are among the top ways to sabotage their portfolio's performance.

2. Select companies, not ticker icons
It's easy to forget that behind the alphabet pool of stock quotes that crawl at the bottom of each CNBC broadcast is actually a business. Stock picking shouldn't be just an abstract idea. Don't forget: Owning shares in the company's stock is an opportunity to be a part of the business.

"Remember that purchasing a share in a company's stock is the best way to become owner of the company."

You'll come across an overwhelming amount of information as you look for potential business partners. However, it is easier to focus on the most important details when you're wearing the "business buyer" hat. It's crucial to know about the operations of the company, competitors, long-term outlook, and whether the company can add value to your business portfolio.

3. Don't panic during times of anxiety
Sometimes investors feel tempted by the urge to alter the status of their stocks. However, making quick decisions in the heat can lead investors to make classic mistakes in investing, such as buying high and selling low. Journaling can help you avoid this. Make a note of the factors that make each item worth your time and note any other circumstances that could justify you to separate. This can be used as an example.

Why I'm Buying Let us know what you find appealing about the company. Also inform us of possibilities for future growth. What are your goals? What are your priorities? And what milestones are you using to gauge the company's progress. Review the risks and identify which of them would be game-changers and which would be signs of a setback that is temporary.

What will cause me to sell? Sometimes, there are good reasons to split up. Create an investment plan outlining the reasons you should sell the shares. It's not just about changes in the price of stocks, particularly not immediately, but to fundamental changes which could impact the company's ability to grow over time. One exampleis when a company is unable to retain a major client. The successor of the CEO steers the business in a completely new direction. Or, your investing thesis doesn’t work out in a reasonable amount of time.

4. Start building positions gradually
An investor's superpower is their timing, not the time. Investors who are the most successful buy stocks to expect to be rewarded through dividends or price appreciation. -- over years or even years. This means that you can also take your time buying. These are three purchasing strategies that will help you decrease your volatility.

Dollar-cost average: This might sound like a lot of work however it's actually not. Dollar-cost Averaging is when you invest a set amount of money over a regular time period, such as each week or every month. This amount can be used to buy more shares if the stock price drops and less shares if it rises. In the end, it equals the price you pay. Online brokerage companies permit investors to create an automated plan for investing.

Buy in Thirds: Similar to dollar cost Averaging, "buying In Thirds" can help you avoid having the painful experience of experiencing poor results right away. Divide the amount of money you'd like to invest by three. Choose three points from which to purchase shares. These could be set up to be scheduled on a regular basis (e.g. monthly, quarterly) or in response to corporate performance or other events. For instance, you could buy shares prior to a product launches and invest the remaining 3 percent of your earnings towards it if it's successful or redirect it elsewhere when it's not.

Purchase "the basket" Are you unable to decide which company in a particular industry will be the long-term winner? Buy them all! There's no need to choose "the one" when you buy a basket of stocks. If you purchase a basket of stocks, you won't miss out on any potential winners. This method will enable you to find "the one", and you can then double your position, if needed.

5. Avoid trading too much
Monitoring your stock each quarter, for example when you get quarterly reports -- is sufficient. However, it's not easy to be on the lookout for the scoreboard. This could lead to reacting too quickly to the latest news and focusing on the share price instead of the value of the company, and feeling like you need to act even though there is no need.

Find out the reason your stock is experiencing rapid price fluctuations. Is your stock suffering collateral damage as a result of the market's reaction to an unrelated event or is it the victim? What's changed in the core business of the company? Is there a meaningful change that will affect your long-term future plans?

Short-term noise, such as blaring headlines or price fluctuations aren't really important to the performance of the company over time. It is how investors respond to the noise that counts most. Your investing journal can be a helpful guide for staying calm during the inevitable ups, downs and shifts that investing in stocks brings.
