Why investing is not easy:
- Long term investing involves identifying and investing in a company which is expected to do well in foreseeable future. But identifying such opportunities is difficult unless one is certain of the business model of the company and the ability of the company to protect itself against competition i.e. whether the company enjoys barriers to entry and is an Economic Moat or not.
- The worst possible mistake would be to perceive a short term advantage as a sustainable barrier to entry/Moat. This would put the investor at the most risk.
