Top Ten Investor Mistakes

There is no investor that is immune from making mistakes. The greatest of them all make mistakes from time to time. It's surely ain't no feather in a cap, but then again it all depends on how the mistake is viewed by the investor.

Some years ago, the CFA Institute cited the top ten mistakes investors made were;

  1. No strategy
  2. Too little diversity
  3. Buying too high
  4. Churning (frequent portfolio turnover)
  5. Acting on tips
  6. Paying too much
  7. Making decisions based on taxes
  8. Unrealistic expectations
  9. Portfolio neglect
  10. Not knowing your real tolerance
Focus InSight: Avoid these mistakes and with time your investment return will be great.
