This is the time of year where many of us have already started to give up on our New Year's resolutions. Here's one that I haven't yet delivered in 2013 but I intend to keep with the Seeking Alpha community: Share more long-term oriented insight.
I was recently inspired by Chuck Carnvevale's discussion of the Shiller 10PE as the type of article that SA members will be continuing to read in the years to come. So much of what is on the website (including many of my own contributions) has the shelf-life of a Mayfly. So, my resolution is to try to step back from all the minute-by-minute or day-by-day action and share a little more perspective on occasion.
Over the last year or so, I shared two articles that I now consider the first two among my "Keep it Short and Simple" series, which is a win-win for everyone hopefully. For me, these are easy to write and don't require too much time, for they are the result of decades of observations. For you, they are easy to read and hopefully instructive too. The two I shared included a discussion of the flaws in PEG Analysis, which continues to get a significant number of readers every day, and five tips for becoming a better stock-picker.
So, in my first KISS attempt for 2013, I want to share some advice on how to be a better self-directed investor.
