Warren Buffet’s advice to investors. Est. Wealth of $52 Billion Dollars
Warren Buffett reiterated his view that for most small investors who don't have time to research individual companies, cheap index funds are the best way to invest in the stock market. "The best way in my view is to just buy a low-cost index fund and keep buying it regularly over time , because you'll be buying into a wonderful industry, which in effect is all of American industry. If you buy it over time, you won't buy at the bottom, but you won't buy it all at the top either," the billionaire investor said. In contrast to mutual funds run by portfolio managers actively picking stocks, "If you have 2% a year of your funds being eaten up by fees you're going to have a hard time matching an index fund in my view," Buffett said. " People ought to sit back and relax and keep accumulating over time ."
