Mark Hibben is one of 25 Seeking Alpha Contributors participating in the 2017 DIY Investing Summit. In the summit, one of the questions I asked Mark was what his top advice would be for DIY investors. We also discuss his personal investment philosophy, most influential investing books read, and more. Below is an excerpt from the interview and a summary of his response.
Mark's top advice for DIY investors...
- There is no substitute for going through the primary documents of a company.
- Doing your homework is easier if you already have a base knowledge to build from in the industry.
- Focus your efforts on a few companies.
- Ignore what the market believes and focus on intrinsic value.
This is just a small excerpt of what's covered in the interview.
