  1. Who controls the company – are they aligned with shareholders – do you trust them 
  2. The most important asset is its people – what is quality of people and culture 
  3. Strong Balance sheet is key – a company has to sustain and overcome issues 
  4. Understand what you are buying – if something is too good to be true – and you don’t understand it –  it probably is 
  5. Think long term – avoid getting involved in daily noise of market fluctuations – great investments need time to grow
