Facebook Inc (FB), LinkedIn Corp (LNKD), Tesla Motors Inc (TSLA): Why Time Horizon Matters

Time horizon matters

Stocks like these are dangerous investments when an investor’s time horizon is limited. If you want to invest with the Buffett philosophy, then invest with the intention of holding for the long, long term. Anything can happen in the short run — especially when it comes to growth stocks with lofty valuations like these three.

But if you are in for the long haul, I wouldn’t even think of selling any of these three businesses. As Warren Buffett has said,”Our favorite holding period is forever.”
