What Long-Term Investing Is All About Gurus discuss the advantages of buying and holding Warren Buffett, Paul Singer, Seth Klarman, Jeff Ub - What Long-Term Investing Is All About
Most investors will claim to be long-term, buy-and-hold investors, as that is what they are told they should be.

You only need to look at a long-term chart of the S&P 500 to realize the benefits of this strategy. Even though the market has its ups and downs, over the long run stocks have climbed steadily higher. If you assume the index will perform over the next hundred years as it has over the previous century, the chances of you losing money in equities over the long term are slim. More...
