Find a very good management, a very honest management and see the product in which the management is going to grow, going to outperform its peers and the economy... invest in those companies for the next 10–15 years, and you cannot go wrong.” Bet big and ride through tough times is his advice  While luck plays a big part in stock market investments, knowledge, courage and patience are the cornerstones according to him.
