The research also said that about 90% of people lose their money in the stock market.

But, Warren Buffett has made billions by investing in stocks alone.

In fact, it is much easier to get rich by investing in stocks. But we making it very complicated.


One day, my friend asked me “Give me a stock idea that will become a multi-beggar in the future”.

He said: “Hey, I also know about Asian paint but I want the next Asian paint”.

I replied: “But, the next Asian paint is Asian Paint itself”.


Most people want something new in the stock market. They don’t like to invest in consistently performing stocks whose fundamentals are rock solid and have a lot of growth ahead. They want adventure in life. They want to show someone Hey, I can even find multi-beggars stock myself.

Warren Buffett quote on investing

Rule-1: Invest in high-quality consistent compounder stocks.

How do you get high quality consistent compounder stock?

  • Look around you and find the products and services you like.
  • Then check, are these products well known?
  • Does everyone use it?

Some of the consistent compounders are :

  • Asian Paints
  • HDFC Bank
  • Kotak Mahindra Bank
  • Titan Company
  • Nestle India
  • HUL
  • Pidilite Industries

And many more…..

All stocks are market leaders in their field.

Rule-2: Invest when the market crash.

Why should we invest in a market crash?

  • Because at the time, most investors were scared and there was blood on the street.
  • All high-quality businesses are down more than 50%.

The market has declined by more than 50% in these years.

  • 2000–2001
  • 2008–2009
  • 2019-2020

Someone will argue: “No one knows the bottom of the market”.

Yes, he is right 100%.

For that, you can divide your money into 5 parts and you can invest each of your parts as the market goes down.

Rule-3: Stay invested for too long.

  • The stock market is very volatile and very risky in the short term. In the short term, market movements are based on greed and fears of investors, micro and macro factors, changes in interest rates, government policy, budgets, and many global events.
  • But in the long run, the share price movement is based solely on the company’s reported earnings growth.

Shares with the above characteristics traded at higher P / E in the past and will continue to trade at higher P / E in the future. (You can check yourself).
