John Neff

John Neff

is one of the best known mutual fund investors of the past 40 years, notable for his contrarian and value investing styles as well as heading Vanguard's Windsor Fund.
An awful lot of people keep a stock too long because it gives them warm fuzzies – particularly when a contrarian stance has been vindicated. If they sell it, they lose bragging rights.More John Neff quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's not always easy to do what's not popular, but that's where you make your money. Buy stocks that look bad to less careful investors and hang on until their real value is recognized.More John Neff quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't want a lot of good investments; I want a few outstanding ones.More John Neff quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Brand-name growth stocks ordinarily command the highest p/e ratios. Rising prices beget attention, and vice versa - but only to a point. Eventually their growth rate can diminish as results revert towards normal. Maybe not in all cases, but often enough to make a long-term bet. Bottom line: I wouldn't want to get caught in a rush for the exit, much less get left behind. Only when big growth stocks fall into the dumper from time to time am I inclined to pick them up - and even then, only in moderation.More John Neff quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't read, much less follow, the valuations or predictions. I study the numbers.More John Neff quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
