Why do we invest? The main reasons is that we forgo current use of resources for the potential of more in the future. Many new to investing are focused on making a quick return. This of course, would be nice (to get rich quick) but often people get poor, very quickly chasing this goal. A time-tested strategy in the stock market is by value investing. We all hear about the great legendary investors, Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Benjamin Graham, among many others. They all have their own investment intricacies, but when it comes down to it, value is at their strategies’ core. So why not enjoy life, while making a solid return? Investing does not have to be your job to achieve above average returns. This is why SleepyCapital was started.
So what is Sleepy Capital?
First and foremost, this is an investing blog covering everything from general investment knowledge to the latest happenings in the world. Secondly, SleepyCapital is a resource for individuals to learn about investing. There is a wealth of information out there on investing, so I am filtering out as much noise as I can and providing you with the best reading, videos
and other resources to broaden your knowledge.
Why the name, Sleepy Capital?
Investing takes time. Value investing takes more time. But time should not be the focus, because (hopefully) through your value investing, you will gain above-average results that will significantly beat the market. You can focus more on improving your fundamental analysis of individual companies, rather than trading “stocks” every day. Instead of calling it, as Charlie Munger would say, “sit-on-your-ass” Capital, I have simply changed it to SleepyCapital (more user-friendly as you can imagine). You can rest easy with this approach, and gain much more than stronger investment returns. Improving your investing aside, you’ll have more time to enjoy your life. I am always searching for my next investment, but I am also enjoying my free-time, letting my portfolio do the work and sleeping well. The goal is to (value) invest and sleep well doing it.
