[Quote No.25868] Need Area: Money > Invest
"'Amortization' comes from the Latin 'mors', or 'death'. It literally means 'kill off the debt'. You do that by paying down the amount you owe on a loan (the principal). It is important when you are considering borrowing to consider how quickly this can be achieved." - unknown

[Quote No.25869] Need Area: Money > Invest
"In times when the economy is booming, there is a great deal of cash around looking for a use and/or interest rates are very low, loans are often made to individuals and companies which carry a great deal more risk than normal in order to put the available money to use to get maximum profits. At some point the economic situation becomes less positive and lenders realise they may lose on a lot of these loans and they become much more careful in the standards that borrowers must meet. This is called a credit crunch - a sudden reduction in the availability of loans and other types of credit from banks and capital markets at given interest rates. In well-functioning markets, this would simply mean a rise in interest rates, but in practice it often means that some borrowers cannot get loans at all, a situation of credit rationing. This can dramatically effect those individuals and companies that have a lot of debt which needs to be refinanced soon and/or frequently - often resulting in the sale of their assets at very low prices in order for them to get out of debt as soon as possible. When borrowing and investing in times of low interest rates it is important to factor the risk of this negative possibility into your calculations." - unknown

[Quote No.25870] Need Area: Money > Invest
"The two biggest problems for investors are greed and impatience. They result in seemingly rational people underestimating risk and investing foolishly. Remember 'if you invest in haste you will regret in leisure' and 'if it seems too good to be true it probably isn't'." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know.[and knowing this should help us err on the side of caution in assessing the risk of any situation - that includes share market investing]" - Donald Rumsfeld

[Quote No.25876] Need Area: Money > Invest
"Sometimes after an economy has been booming for a while, often because of high liquidity and low interest rates, an economy can become split between some areas doing very well and other parts doing quite badly. This can mean, for example, that, on the one hand, inflationary pressures can build, fuelled by higher energy and food prices, while, on the other hand, the housing and credit markets can be in the doldrums, leading to fears of a recession. This scenario, referred to as stagflation (a mix between stagnation and inflation), leaves a country's central banking authority, for example the US Federal Reserve, in a quandary. If they cut interest rates because of recessionary fears, they risk fuelling inflation. If they raise interest rates because of inflationary fears, they risk the economy falling into recession. When assessing the risk of investments keep this potential complication in mind." - unknown

[Quote No.25891] Need Area: Money > Invest
"A trade deficit consists of importing (buying) more [for example - petrol and consumer goods, especially when the currency is high and therefore buys more] than is exported (sold) [for example - minerals or manufactured goods], while a trade surplus consists of exporting (selling) more than is imported (bought). Economists differ in their opinions about which of these are useful or detrimental to an economy, but a case can be made for the analogy that if a country is like a person, then a trade deficit is the equivalent of a person who spends more than they earn, while a trade surplus is the equivalent of a person who earns more than they spend." - unknown

[Quote No.25895] Need Area: Money > Invest
"Inflation is the rise in the cost of goods, which often occurs when an economy has been growing well. Deflation is the fall in the price of goods, which often occurs when an economy slows. Stagflation is when there is rising costs of goods but the economy stops growing. A recession is when there is a significant decline in activity spread across the economy, lasting longer than a few months. It is visible in industrial production, employment, real income and wholesale-retail trade. The technical indicator of a recession is two consecutive quarters of negative economic growth as measured by a country's gross domestic product (GDP). Recession is a normal part of the business cycle. Interest rates (through monetary policy) usually fall in recessionary times to stimulate the economy by offering cheap rates at which to borrow money. A recession generally lasts from six to 18 months. If a recession is severe (involves high unemployment, falling price levels, falling consumers' confidence and decreasing investments) and prolonged, it is called a depression." - unknown

[Quote No.25948] Need Area: Money > Invest
"There is not much difference, really, between the squirrel laying up nuts and the man laying up money. Like the squirrel, the man – at least at the start – is trying to provide for his basic needs. I don’t know much about squirrels, but I think they know when they have enough nuts, and I’m sure they don’t gamble away what they have accumulated. In this, they are superior to men, who [especially when they buy and sell shares] often don’t know when they have enough [profit], and frequently gamble away what they do have [by being greedy and taking too great a risk] in the empty hope of getting more." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.25950] Need Area: Money > Invest
"[In 1926] A full three years before the [1929] crash I wrote to Mark Sullivan: ‘Now let me make a prediction to you. Business has undoubtedly reached its zenith, and what we see in motors, steel, and railroad [balance and income] statements, is evidence of what has gone by and not of what is before us. There has been a stimulation of business by high-power salesmanship on the partial payment plan [too easy credit and loans] of homes, radios, automobiles, etc. Whereas it is wise to buy things on the partial payment plan that will result in time in increased economies [i.e. – produce income or save money] and better living, at the same time it can be overdone. I am afraid it has now been overdone... " - Bernard Baruch

"Whenever some cool, calm voice [of reason] like Carter Glass’s was raised against this madness [of excessive optimism], it was jeered. Whenever the market fell back – and there were some sharp setbacks on occasion – from every quarter would come the chorus that all was well.

"Nothing did more to spur the boom in stocks [before the 1929 Stock Market Crash] than the decision made by the New York Federal Reserve Bank, in the spring of 1927, to cut the rediscount rate [of interest]...this easy money policy...was to cause a re-evaluation of all securities [price to earnings ratios] and to further inflate our already inflationary credit system by making large sums of money available for financing [still more] stock speculation." - Bernard Baruch

[Quote No.25954] Need Area: Money > Invest
"...the boom [in stocks late in the 1920’s] had to end [but] none knew when the expected break [bust, crash] would come. Hugh Johnson was associated with me in various business ventures at this time, and I remember telling him to keep close watch on automobile sales and on construction statistics. These were the segments of the economy primarily dependent on the credit-inflation boom. When they began to slip, we would know that the whole structure was in danger...my advice was to pull out of speculative situations, get out of debt and put one’s funds into sound bonds...I myself was doing as I advised. By 1928, I had begun to liquidate my stock holdings and to put my money into bonds and into a cash reserve...I always like to have some hard cash around, especially in times of trouble. [The crash came in October, 1929.]" - Bernard Baruch

"...I began to sell everything I could, in anticipation of the break I now felt to be imminent [in the stock market]. This was near the end of September [a month before the crash started]. The condition of the market could be measured by its wild fluctuations [volatility], followed by assurances from every direction that all was well. But I had heard this lullaby before. I knew that the [momentum and self-fulfilling expectation] continuity of confidence was beginning to break. The market continued to fall and rally. Then, suddenly, there were no more rallies. There was instead, a final cataclysmic break that began on Wednesday, October 23rd [1929], when a premonitory plunge sent a shudder of apprehension through Wall Street. On the next day, Black Thursday, the plunge became a descent so terrifying that panic swept the floor of the Exchange, by that time a frantic madhouse...when stocks went begging without buyers, no matter what the price. The descent continued that week and next...but still the plunge continued – deeper and deeper...[by mid-November] The value of stocks had declined by more than thirty percent...And this was only the beginning – worse was to come." - Bernard Baruch

"Who and what were to blame for the [1929 Stock Market Crash and the] collapse of the tinsel structure of our prosperity? Rarely has there been so much blame to share among so many. Government leaders, for one, were to blame for a long series of erroneous policies...Bankers and brokers were responsible for the collapse, too...Yet, in the last analysis, it was the public which was chiefly responsible for its own undoing. The stock market boom was a classic example of the madness of crowds...In economics there seems to be a cyclical rhythm to these movements. A bull market will be galloping along and then, suddenly, something will occur – trivial or important – to break the continuity of thought [the greedy, self-fulfilling expectancy driving the market’s momentum]. And then [fear and] panic sets in. [and the boom busts]" - Bernard Baruch

"Depths and heights are inevitable in any economy, and they are of course in direct ratio to each other. If we wish to escape the pit of depression, we must stay of the inflationary heights. We must learn to scale down the mountain of boom and fill in the valley of bust, so that economic progress can be achieved at a sure and steady pace. But if, for whatever reason, we succumb to some economic madness [for example too easy credit for too long], we will surely let ourselves in for trouble. And, as in 1929 [Stock Market Crash], we shall have only ourselves to blame." - Bernard Baruch

"All economic movements, by their very nature, are motivated by crowd psychology. Graphs and business ratios are, of course, indispensable in our groping efforts to find dependable rules to guide us...Yet I never see a brilliant economic thesis expounding, as though they were geometrical theorems, the mathematics of price movements, that I do not recall Schiller’s dictum: ‘Anyone taken as an individual, is tolerably sensible and reasonable – as a crowd, he at once becomes a blockhead,’...Without due recognition of crowd thinking (which often seems crowd-madness) our theories of economics leave much to be desired. It is a force wholly impalpable – perhaps little amenable to analysis and less to guidance – and yet, knowledge of it is necessary to right judgements on passing events. [especially share market events]" - Bernard Baruch

"[Business works through]...the law of supply and demand...When prices go up two processes will set in – an increased production [supply] and a decreased consumption [demand]. The effect will be a gradual fall in prices. If prices get too low two processes will set in – decreased production [supply] because a man [or woman] will not continue to produce at a loss and, second, increased consumption [demand]. These two forces will tend to establish the normal balance." - Bernard Baruch

[Quote No.25980] Need Area: Money > Invest
"There are two principal mistakes that nearly all amateurs in the stock market make. The first is to have an inexact knowledge of the securities in which one is dealing, to know too little about the company’s management, its earnings and prospects for future growth. The second mistake is to trade beyond one’s financial resources, to try to run up a fortune on a shoestring [using loans]." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.25981] Need Area: Money > Invest
"...I began to grasp dimly that the period of emergence from a depression provides rare opportunities for financial profit [through investing in shares in the stock market]. During a depression people come to feel that better times never will come. They cannot see through their despair [and pessimism] to the sunny future that lies behind the fog. At such times a basic confidence [and optimism] in the country’s future pays off, if one purchases securities and holds them until prosperity returns. [This followed the old adage, ‘Buy in gloom and sell in boom.’] From what I saw, heard and read, I knew that was exactly what the giants of finance and industry were doing. They were quietly acquiring interests in [good companies and] properties which had defaulted but which would pay out under competent management once normal economic conditions were restored. I tried to do the same with my limited means." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.25983] Need Area: Money > Invest
"I have defined a speculator [which comes from the Latin word ‘speculari’ and means to observe] as - a man [or woman] who observes the future and acts before it occurs. To be able to do this successfully – and it is an ability of priceless value in all human affairs…three things are necessary: First, one must get the facts of a situation or problem. Second, one must form a judgement as to what those facts portend. Third, one must act in time – before it is too late. I have heard many men talk intelligently, even brilliantly, about something – only to see them proven powerless when it comes to acting on what they believe." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.25984] Need Area: Money > Invest
"Aglow with pride and self-assurance, I began looking about for new financial adventures. But I was soon to learn that it is one thing to make money and another thing to keep it. In fact, making money is often easier than keeping it. [especially if in making it you become over-confident in your ability just as the Bible says in Proverbs 16:18: ‘Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.’]...Nothing but my own bad judgement was responsible. My course violated every sound rule of speculation [investing]. I acted on unverified information after superficial investigation and, like thousands of others before and since, got just what my conduct deserved." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.25985] Need Area: Money > Invest
"Both my failure in whiskey and my success in copper [share market investing] emphasized one thing – the importance of getting the facts of a situation free from ...wishful thinking. In the search for facts I learned that one had to be as unimpassioned as a surgeon. And if one had the facts right, one could stand with confidence against the will or whims of those who were supposed to know best." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.25986] Need Area: Money > Invest
"As with most financial panics [in 1901] the stage had been set in advance by extravagant hopes and talk of a ‘New Era’ ['Things are different this time!']. Varied factors contributed to this surge of optimism. Our victory over Spain had stirred fantastic dreams of imperialism and dazzling predictions of new foreign markets. The public was in the stock market as never before...everyone had a ‘tip’ to pass on. Since the market was rising [booming], every bullish tip came true and every tipster seemed a prophet. Several times it seemed that the market had run its course and that a healthy reaction was on the way. Then a new stock would be brought forward and there would be another balloon ascension." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

"The simple truth is that there are no ‘sure things’ in the market...Even the best of speculators must be prepared to be wrong in a certain percentage of his operations. In such cases he must be able to strike his tent [sell] on the instant and conduct a swift, skilful, and silent retreat." - Bernard Baruch

[Quote No.25994] Need Area: Money > Invest
"When the panic [bust] of 1903 struck I was in a far different position. Feeling that the market was being pushed too high [through over-optimism] I had sold much of my holdings in 1902, so that when the market dropped I would have the cash to buy securities and wait on the future growth of the economy." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.25995] Need Area: Money > Invest
"[War requires raw materials and energy and therefore their prices rise:] We had not yet entered the war but had begun to strengthen our defences. The Armed Services estimated they would need immediately 45 million pounds of copper...The outbreak of World War One greatly increased the demand for sulfur [sulphur, which is the base for sulfuric/sulphuric acid, then perhaps the most important of all industrial chemicals]...shortly after we entered World War One...President Wilson had invited me to a White House discussion of an oil shortage, which threatened to disrupt our military plans...In World War Two, as chairman of the Rubber Committee, we needed 672,000 tons a year for the U.S. alone...[before WWII 100,000 tons a year had been enough for the whole world.]...When the United States declared war, nitrate prices [nitrates are used for both fertilizer and explosives] jumped almost overnight by a third and then doubled within three weeks." - Bernard Baruch

[Quote No.26001] Need Area: Money > Invest
"Repeatedly in my market operations [investments] I have sold a stock while it was still rising – and that has been one reason why I have held on to my fortune. Many a time I might have made a good deal more by holding a stock, but then I would also have been caught in the fall when the price of the stock collapsed. If I have missed some opportunities for money making because of this practice, I have also avoided ‘going broke’, as I have seen many other men do. Some people boast of selling at the top of the market and buying at the bottom – I don’t believe this can be done except by latter-day Munchausens [tall story teller]. I have bought when things seemed low enough and sold when they seemed high enough. In that way I have avoided being swept along to those wild extremes of market fluctuations, which prove so disastrous." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.26002] Need Area: Money > Invest
"In the dark years [of the Great Depression] that followed [the 1929 stock market Crash] I reread Mackay [‘Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds’] and found his tales curiously encouraging. For if his book showed how baseless are man’s moods of wild hope [optimism], it also showed that man’s moods of black despair [pessimism] are equally unfounded. Always in the past, no matter how black the outlook, things got better. Whatever men attempt, they seem driven to overdo. When hopes are soaring I always repeat to myself, ‘Two and two still make four and no one has ever invented a way of getting something for nothing.’ When the outlook is steeped in pessimism I remind myself, ‘Two and two still make four and you can’t keep mankind down for long.’ " - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.26003] Need Area: Money > Invest
"...the truth is there is no investment which doesn’t involve some risk...What we can try to do perhaps is to come to a better understanding of risk in whatever we undertake. Or put another way...our problem is how to remain properly venturesome and experimental without making fools of ourselves. As I have already pointed out, the true speculator [investor] is one who observes the future and acts before it occurs. Like a surgeon he must be able to search through a mass of complex and contradictory details to the significant facts. Then, still like a surgeon, he must be able to operate coldly, clearly, and skilfully on the basis of the facts before him. What makes this task of fact finding so difficult is that in the stock market the facts of any situation come to us through a curtain of human emotions. What drives the prices of stocks up or down is not impersonal economic forces or changing events but the human reactions to these happenings. The constant problem of the speculator or analyst is how to disentangle the cold, hard economic facts from the rather warm feelings of the people dealing with the facts. Few things are more difficult to do. The main obstacle lies in disentangling ourselves from our emotions." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.
