No. 2: The Importance of Diversification
No. 3: Index Funds Help Achieve Diversification

Like Buffett, Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald has long warned against getting emotional when it comes to investing. "Studies have shown that emotional interference takes a terrible toll that can cost investors hundreds of percent in lost opportunity during their investing lifetime," he told readers in December.
According to recent Dalbar data, that could be as much as 190% over a typical investor's lifetime.
"If you conquer emotion as an influence when it comes to your investing decisions, you can expect to boost your returns by 190% -- the chance to almost triple your money," Fitz-Gerald said.
