In any kind of economy, there are investors that do better than others in stock market. There are those who, in the industry, are known as master investors. Of course, not all master investors are right when they invest or advise folks where to invest. It’s a difficult profession to say the least.
Some of the master investors are Warren Buffett and Jim Rogers as well as mutual fund managers Ralph Wanger, George Michaelis, Peter Lynch and John Neff.
Do a search online for any name above and try to understand the style and the substance of each master investor. A true master investor is someone who has consistently beaten the market averages for at least a decade.
