Long Term Vs. Short Term Investment Strategies

Most people believe that the majority of the money made in the stock market is earned during bull markets. Yes, it is a common fact that everyone makes a lot of money in bull markets. World-class investors, like Warren Buffett often point out that making huge sums of money as an investor in a bull market has absolutely nothing to do with your ability to spot a good investment, you just happen to be in the right place at the right time.

Most investors fail to realize the very true, little known fact is that savvy investors whose investment strategies can withstand the pressures of a bear market are often than not left with quite a nest egg. Not only that, their success in a bear market is often times a measure of how much they are poised to push ahead in a bull market. According to Warren Buffett, investment firms notoriously shortchange their investors by taking a very short-term stance with their investments, as opposed to holding long-term positions in stable companies poised to grow.
