A Wall Street Craps Definition: Capital Preservation

November 17th, 2011


capital preservation:

1. a conservative investment objective of avoiding asset value loss.
2. an investment goal in which protecting the investor’s principle from loss is the primary concern.
3. a wise and prudent reason for selling underperforming stock market positions when the disempowering emotions of hope and greed are more likely to cause amateur investors to procrastinate and do nothing.

“Perhaps my number one rule is: Don’t try to make a profit on a bad trade, just try to find the best place to get out.”
