13 Steps to Investing Foolishly, Step 9: Invest Like The Masters

Worldwide Invest Better Day 9/25/2012

In honor of Worldwide Invest Better Day, we at The Motley Fool are recapping our "13 Steps to Investing Foolishly" -- steps you can follow to become a better, more Foolish investor.

In the following video, Foolish host Chris Hill covers Step No. 9: learning from the masters. 

History has given us excellent investing role models to learn from. Chris covers three of the biggies:

  • Peter Lynch, whose no-nonsense approach to investing led him to multibagger returns on great investments such as Ford.
  • Warren Buffett, whose value-minded approach buys good companies for less than they're worth and holds them for the long run while everyone else catches up. Speaking of undervalued companies, his own Berkshire Hathaway is very cheap today, and near his own threshold for share repurchases. 
  • Sir John Templeton, whose international focus and funds have helped investors profit from our ever-changing and globalizing world.
