In fact, Warren Buffet says, ‘Lethargy bordering on sloth should remain the cornerstone of an investment style.’

For business owners with little time to spare, it takes a sensible approach to lock in stock gains.

You day-to-day interaction with customers, competitors and suppliers provide valuable insights that will allow you to make intelligent and informed decisions about which stocks to own.
