Buy & Hold v/s In & Out Investing podcast

May 28, 2021

Time in the market is more important than timing the market is one of the oldest cliches in the stock market.

And it is true as well. Even if you miss a few best days in the stock market, your returns can take a huge beating. And therefore, it is important that you always stay invested.

However, is buy and hold as profitable as people make it out to be?

Isn't moving in and out of stock markets based on certain parameters a better option?

Let us find out in the video.

Here's more on value investing:

Rahul Shah

Rahul Shah co-head of research at Equitymaster is the editor of (Research Analyst), Editor, Microcap Millionaires, Exponential Profits, Double Income, Midcap Value Alert and Momentum Profits. Rahul has over 20 years of experience in financial markets as an analyst and editor. Rahul first joined Equitymaster as a Research Analyst, fresh out of university in 2003 but left shortly after to pursue his dream job with a Swiss investment bank. However, he quickly became disillusioned working for the 'financial establishment'. He learned first-hand the greedy stereotype of an investment banker is true and became uncomfortable working for a company that put profit above everything else. In 2006, Rahul re-joined Equitymas ter to serve honest, hardworking Indians like his father, who want to take control of their financial future - and not leave it in the hands of greedy money managers. Following the investment principles of Benjamin Graham (the bestselling author of The Intelligent Investor) and Warren Buffet (considered the world's greatest living investor), Rahul has recommended some of the biggest winners in Equitymaster's history.

Further to my response to the above article, as an example, in these times of high pe in the market, this is the right time to gradually sell metal stocks and accumulate stocks like ITC and L&T.

Better strategy is to do proper stock picking with a mixture of stocks with high beta and stocks with low beta. When market has high pe go for more low beta stocks and when market has low pe go for high beta stocks
