Just Buy And Hold!

buy and hold

One of the people I follow on Twitter¬†recently retweeted a tweet made by CNBC’S Jim Cramer, remarking, “Who says buy and hold doesn’t work?”

Cramer had tweeted a screen shot another user had taken of his brokerage account and tweeted.

This investor did not post this to brag or show off.¬† He did it to show evidence that a “buy and hold” strategy can and does work over the long term.

He owned both Apple Computer (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) for years.  His profits on both were over $500,000.

He tweeted that he ignores the negative headlines and short term sell-offs in the market, as well as in his holdings.

This man’s “buy and do nothing” style is exactly what I preach in my book, The Stock Market is For Everyone.

If you have not already done so, start buying and start holding!
