Managing your own portfolio: One father’s advice

One important lesson to remember is that human behaviour in the marketplace remains constant.

Investment decisions should be the product of a rational trade-off between risk and return, but unfortunately they generally reflect an emotional response to fear and anxiety. Most investors tend to expect prevailing trends to continue and fail to accommodate change adequately.

Too many investors seem to have forgotten the cardinal rule that there is no free lunch in the marketplace. This memorandum to the author’s daughter contains some practical advice directed to the management of one’s own portfolio.

FROM: Arthur Zeikel (Father)
TO: Jill Anne Zeikel (Daughter)
DATE: October 17, 1994
RE: Managing Your Own Portfolio
It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts – Earl Weaver.

Personal portfolio management is not a competitive sport. It is, instead, an important individualised effort to achieve some predetermined financial goal balancing one’s risk-tolerance level with the desire to enhance capital wealth.

Good investment management practices are complex and time consuming, requiring discipline, patience, and consistency of application. Too many investors fail to follow some simple, time-tested tenets that improve the odds of achieving success and, at the same time, reduce the anxiety naturally associated with an uncertain undertaking.

I hope the following advice will help:
A fool and his money are soon parted.
Investment capital becomes a perishable commodity if not handled properly.
Be serious. Pay attention to your financial affairs. Take an active, intensive interest. If you don’t, why should anyone else?
There is no free lunch
Risk and return are interrelated. Set reasonable objectives using history as a guide. All returns relate to inflation. Better to be safe than sorry. Never up, never in.
Most investors underestimate the stress of a high-risk portfolio on the way down.
Don’t put all your eggs in one basket
Diversify. Asset allocation determines the rate of return. Stocks beat bonds over time.
Never overreach for yield
Remember, leverage works both ways. More money has been lost searching for yield than at the point of a gun (Ray DeVoe).
Spend interest, never principal
If at all possible, take out less than comes in. Then, a portfolio grows in value and lasts forever. The other way around, it can be diminished quite rapidly.
You cannot eat relative performance
Measure results on a total return, portfolio basis against your own objectives, not someone else’s.
Don’t be afraid to take a loss
Mistakes are part of the game. The cost price of a security is a matter of historical insignificance, of interest only to the IRS.
Averaging down, which is different from dollar cost averaging, means the first decision was a mistake. It is a technique used to avoid admitting a mistake or to recover a loss against the odds. When in doubt, get out. The first loss is not only the best but is also usually the smallest.
Watch out for fads
Hula hoops and bowling alleys (among others) didn’t last. There are no permanent shortages (or oversupply). Every trend creates its own countervailing force. Expect the unexpected.
Act
Make decisions. No amount of information can remove all uncertainty. Have confidence in your moves. Better to be approximately right than precisely wrong.
Take the long view
Don’t panic under short-term transitory developments. Stick to your plan. Prevent emotion from overtaking reason. Market timing generally doesn’t work. Recognise the rhythm of events.
Remember the value of common sense
No system works all of the time. History is a guide, not a template.
This is all you really need to know.
Love,
Dad
