We recommend reading this chapter on Varsity to learn more and understand the concepts in-depth.

Key takeaways from this chapter

  1. The mindset of a trader and an investor is different.
  2. The investor has to develop an investment mindset if he is serious about investing.
  3. The investor should stay invested for an extended period for the returns to compound.
  4. The speed at which the money doubles increases drastically the more you stay invested. This is one of the properties of compounding.
  5. Every investment has to be evaluated on two aspects – qualitative & quantitative.
  6. Qualitative aspects revolve around the non-numeric information related to the company.
  7. The quantitative aspects involve analyzing numeric data. Financial statements are an essential source of finding quantitative data.
