Understand the impact of Time

I like to tell my younger investors that they have an important resource for their long term investing goals; Time!  Take advantage of the power of time and the the compounding force it provides. Compounding is the earning of interest on interest, or the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. For instance, if you invest $1,000 and get a return of 8 percent, you will earn $80. By reinvesting the earnings and assuming the same rate of return, the following year you will earn $86.40 on your $1,080 investment. The following year, $1,166.40 will earn $93.31. (This hypothetical example is intended as an illustration and does not reflect the performance of a specific investment).

Use the Rule of 72 to judge an investment's potential. Divide the projected return into 72. The answer is the number of years that it will take for the investment to double in value. For example, an investment that earns 8 percent per year will double in 9 years.
