Those who have heard or read about the huge investment success of Warren Buffett or Benjamin Graham, might have thought about the magic they have done for such or their secrets behind.

I am not a perfect writer. Even though, I feel I have succeeded passing my ideas to our readers through articles in this blog.
We are starting with two most common thoughts or questions. “What is the secret of Buffett or Graham for such terrific investing success?” and “Did they know any magic?”
There is a secret behind their huge success, that not required more brilliancy to understand and practice. Here are those secrets:
1. Best Business
Best business doesn’t mean any well known company that have more than fifty thousand employees and branches all over the world. But, a best company, whether it is micro, small, medium or large, can be identified by following correctors:- Any company running by capable management who respect investors money.- A company with a product that public not able to avoid or not able to survive without it.- It should register consistent sales growth, net profit, per share earning and less cost to sales. I will post another article soon on the major ‘look’ areas of a company.
All from above, right investor should know what businesses are commodity businesses to be avoided and know the types businesses to be avoided by value investor.
2. Best Time to Invest
Best time means nothing but the time to buy the stocks. It has ultimate importance than what we really think. Initial rate of return can be calculated and adjusted to decide when to buy and in what price. Remember, some time the best buying time may reach when the index is top. It means, to workout properly to identify a company when it come to right price. Confirm you have read and understood the ‘Margin of Safety Formula” from great investor Benjamin Graham.
Another point, when an index down to maximum doesn’t mean it is a great buying opportunity. Yes, prices of most shares will come down but, one should expect the prices of some companies may still be at the top.
