The Motley Fool’s approach to investing is a long term, buy and hold strategy. When we recommend a stock in any of our premium subscription services, we are asking that you buy and hold these stocks for a minimum of 3-5 years.
The market has its ups and downs, but over time, it goes back up. In the short term, anything can happen — including market corrections and even crashes. One of your holdings could fall by 20% tomorrow but if you’re holding for the long term, you can ride out the downturns. While it might seem devastating today, that drop won’t matter in 10 or 20 years. If you ride out the dips, you’ll likely benefit from the long-term wealth-building magic of the market, which is why we are long term investors at The Motley Fool.
