Welcome to MRT School
I started this website to help individual investors.
I have to admit: I love the stock market. I think I must be an addict. In my opinion, the stock market is one of the greatest inventions in history. The stock market is the most consistently successful way to make money over the long term. Even after the financial crisis, stocks have still beaten every asset category over the long haul—bonds, commodities and real estate.
While the stock market may bounce around from day to day, and even month to month, the long-term trend has always been upwards. Over the last 50 years, stocks have gone up 200-fold. And since the end of World War II, the stock market is up an amazing 400,000%. I wish I had been around! That was the beginning of an American financial revolution. Today, we’re at the beginning of a global financial revolution. That’s why I think the next 75 years will be even better.
The key to doing well on Wall Street is actually very simple: Buy and hold shares of outstanding companies. But too many investors never learn this valuable lesson. Or if they do learn it, they learn it the hard way. That’s where I come in. I want to help people avoid the mistakes that separate successful investors from those who always find themselves spinning their wheels.
