When it Comes to Surviving a Bear Market, Not Losing Is Winning

One of billionaire investor Warren Buffett’s most famous quotes is: “Rule No. 1: Never lose money. Rule No. 2: Never forget rule No. 1.”

As investors, we know there will be up years and down years. The short-term risk of stocks is the price we pay for long-term returns. However, this is contingent on not turning paper losses into real losses.

Selling at a low or using overly risky strategies like market-timing can be catastrophic to your long-term returns due to a simple mathematical fact.
