DAVID GARDNER, INVESTING STRATEGY
Co-founder, The Motley Fool
1. You should be getting out of credit card and high-interest debt. It’s very hard to invest and beat those numbers.
2. Save 10% of your salary. As we get older, it’s possible to save more than that. The default for many is put it in an index fund. Vanguard has a number of great index funds.
3. David doesn’t own many index funds. He has almost all of his money in stocks. Many people already know good companies. One example: A biker who rides Harleys would be better off betting on Harley than a stock he doesn’t know or understand.
4. David’s favorite stocks for the future: Amazon, Beyond Meat, Sea Limited, the Trade Desk, and Zoom.
