For many, taking a long view is the key to investment success. Long-term investing — using a buy-and-hold strategy, and concentrating on value investments — can mean larger returns in the long run. Indeed, those who take the long view often find that they can ride out the down cycles and recover their losses.
Obviously, though, investors will have to do their own research to determine which investments are best for their particular objectives, or even consult a professional. But, in the meantime, here are 10 YouTube videos that focus on long-term investing.
