- Keep looking for great companies.
- Keep a list of stocks you would love to buy if you hit a Jackpot. And keep it updated.
- Buy the stocks in your list when it is below the intrinsic value. Market panic selloffs due to reasons which does not affect the company are good times to buy.
- Dont invest in too many companies.

One stock:
- Read/Study all possible things about the company.
- Buy only if the company passes your selection process & current price offers a 'margin of safety'.
- Buy it over a period of time (cost averaging).

- Analize your stocks at a regular interval (6 months) to make sure that the reasons for which you invested in the company is still valid.
