InvestED: Ep. 253 – Checklist Radar

Buy low, sell high is the secret to great profits.” – Phil Town

This week on InvestED, Phil and Danielle dive back into their recent conversation on checklists and introduce the acronym, RULES, that Phil uses to create his own checklist.

Rule #1 investing is all about certainty. As a Rule #1 investor, you must have certainty that you aren’t going to lose money in anything that you decide to invest in. Whether you are looking to invest in a house or into the stock market, it’s important that your focus is not on making money, but rather on not losing money.

Do you have a checklist? If you haven’t created a checklist, Phil and Danielle encourage you to make one. Checklists are the bones of every good investor because they help us stay rational when we become emotional. Most importantly, they keep us focused and on-track.

You can make a checklist by following Phil’s acronym, RULES:

Radar
Understand
Love
Events
Story & Inversion
