Gentlemen prefer bonds.

Before you invest, investigate.

Never invest in anything that eats or needs repainting.

The stock market has forecast nine of the last five recessions.

A stockbroker urged me to buy a stock that would triple its value every year. I told him, 'At my age, I don't even buy green bananas.'

I never attempt to make money on the stock market. I buy on the assumption that they could close the market the next day and not reopen it for five years.

If stock market experts were so expert, they would be buying stock, not selling advice.

I made my money by selling too soon. -Bernard Baruch

I asked my broker what stock I should buy. Broker "The XYZ company at $1/share I bought 2,000 shares The next day I called and asked him what looked good Broker "The XYZ company - they are at $2/share" I bought another 2,000 shares The next day my broker called... told me XYZ was at $4/share and asked if I wanted another 2,000 shares. "No, I've made enough on this stock. Sell my 4,000 shares." Broker "To who?"

He who sells what isn't his'n, must buy it back or go to prison. -J.P. Morgan

If you are going to panic, panic early. -Jim Brady
