Mark Hauser is a private equity investor and founder of Mark H.A. Enterprises, LLC. An investment advisory company focused on public equities in the insurance industry. His company has been involved with investments in more than 50 companies across North America and Europe since its founding in 1996, including some of the largest publicly traded property-casualty insurers globally. Mark was recently interviewed by Yahoo! Finance about his thoughts on investment advice for investors looking to get started now or considering diversifying their portfolio. Mark believes that one has to buy stocks at attractive prices and advises people who are just starting not to invest too much money at once, so they don’t risk losing all their capital if one stock goes south. He also recommends that investors study the companies they’re interested in and try to understand their businesses as best they can before buying shares.
When asked about his thoughts on current market conditions, Mark Hauser said he believes there are opportunities for growth in certain sectors but advises caution when investing in others. For example, he’s bullish on the healthcare sector due to ageing demographics and the increasing demand for services, while he’s more cautious about tech stocks because of their volatility. In general, Mark advocates a diversified approach across different sectors and asset types to minimize risk. Ultimately, successful investing is all about balancing risk and reward – finding investments with good potential returns, but that doesn’t carry too much additional risk beyond what you’re comfortable with.
Additionally, Mark Hauser is a strong proponent of dividend investing and says that it is an extremely effective way for most investors to increase returns over time without taking on too much risk. Mark explained that dividends give you the benefit of having cash flow every quarter instead of waiting for a potential sale or investment payout down the road. He also noted how attractive current yields are relative to historical averages, making now a good opportunity to take advantage of those high yielders before they shrink further due to rising interest rates.
