Buy Index Funds specially when markets are down

The trick is not to pick the right company, the trick is to essentially buy all the big companies through the S&P 500 and to do it consistently and to do it in a very, very low cost way.

Consistently buy an S&P 500 low-cost index fund. I think it's the thing that makes the most sense practically all of the time.

Keep buying it through thick and thin, and especially through thin. The temptation when you see bad headlines in newspapers is to say, well, maybe I should skip a year or something. Just keep buying. American business is going to do fine over time, so you know the investment universe is going to do very well.
