active investor でないなら index funds

Fortune にこんなのあったから読んでみた。→"What Warren thinks."
バフェットさんは年に15回くらい大学生を招いて質問に答えてるらしい。

Q;What advice would you give to someone who is not a professional investor? Where should they put their money ?

Buffett’s answer
"Well, if they’re not going to be an active investor – and very few should try to do that – then they should just stay with index funds.
Any low-cost index fund. And they should buy it over time.
They’re not going to be able to pick the right price and the right time.
What they want to do is avoid the wrong price and wrong stock.
You just make sure you own a piece of American business, and you don’t buy all at one time."

"very few should try to do" でも個別株投資許してくれるみたいデス。
バフェットさんからすれば、私はこの程度の投資家だからね。
その他で気になった部分をピックアップしておくと、、、

"There’s only two things you can do wrong: You can buy the wrong ones, and you can buy or sell them at the wrong time. And the truth is you never need to sell them, basically."
私の頭から"basically"が抜けていた気がする。英語で読むと分かることもある。

"The only way an investor can get killed is by high fees or by trying to outsmart the market."
市場の裏をかこうとしちゃダメ?ふにゃ?頭がバグった。。。
