In his latest interview with InfoMoney, Howard Marks recommends that investors invest early, invest heavily, and stay in the market. Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

I think the most important thing that I would stress for your listeners, or readers, or whoever they’re going to be is… the most important single thing is to be an investor and invest early, invest as heavily as you can, and keep it that way.

The stock market has gone up about more than 9% a year for 90 years and it may slow down but it’s not… but it’s still gonna go up in the long run it’s gonna go up six, seven, eight maybe nine percent. And you don’t want to miss that, that’s the bottom line, and if you try to be clever and you get out now because you think it might go down, because rates may go up, you might miss something.

Some people started talking about bubbles almost a year and a half ago last summer and the stock market’s up 35% since then.

If you would have gotten out then, because you felt clever, you’d have missed 35% appreciation. and it’s going to be very hard to make that back.

If you get out today you might miss some… you may not, we never know. I think that you… nobody should be in this business and act as if they know what the future is going to bring but if you take your money out of the market today what are you going to do with it?
