Reminder to buy the boring ones

Stocks can be exciting. Who would not want to buy Amazon and watch it climb with its stellar growth? Autonomous vehicles, so exciting (yes I am shooting my own foot here.) Netflix and chill anyone?

In all seriousness though, I have to remember one of Peter Lynch's adage here. One must remember that many a time, the most boring companies are the ones that can earn the most. I am looking into my portfolio again to see if there are better and more boring stocks to buy. Excitement into stocks tend to drive up prices, whereas the sheer boredom of what a company sell can often times be perfect; Boring companies are honestly what earns money a lot of the time, and still keep on the down low while doing so. One then can swoop in and hopefully get a ten bagger.

I have to remind myself of that too.
