Ron Baron: Peter Lynch: "If you spend more than 14 minutes a year worrying about the market, you've wasted 12 minutes"
September 04, 2005
Ron Baron is not only one of best investors, he is also one of the best writers. Reading his shareholder letters can be enjoyable. ?Peter Lynch is widely recognized as one of the most astute investors of my generation. He gave the above advice to Barron?s readers??. He also wrote about what Warren Buffett told him and he has taken to heart: ?It?s very difficult to earn a good return by investing in poor businesses that you believe are value priced, because those investments are likely depreciating, you?re in a race to sell at a fair price before they lose even more value! It?s much better to invest at fair prices in strong and growing businesses which are likely to appreciate in value.?
