IWA NOTE This is very good news for Orezone investors and provides some incredible lessons on investing success. Patrick Downey and the team at Orezone have hit the ball out of the park. The entire experience of being a shareholder of Orezone and watching the team can be summarized below: Never lose money - A Key Principle Held Dearly by Patrick Downey, CEO Rule No. 1: Never lose money; Rule No 2: don't forget rule No. 1. The more money you lose or don't have now, the greater the impact on your ability to earn money in the future. Every dollar you lose or spend is a dollar you don't have to invest. Find a company that is undervalued like Orezone and has excellent management. This will ensure that you will not lose money. Start early, Be Patient and Think Long Term Orezone has taken time and you need to be patient. The secret to investing is starting early and getting your money to compound for you. Even if it isn't much, over the long term, time is more important than the return or amount invested. Don't Let Emotions Get in the Way Investors should remember that excitement and expenses are their enemies. And if they insist on trying to time their participation in equities, they should try to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy only when others are fearful. There were many times where you needed to be brave while investing in Orezone. Your success is based on being disciplined, patient, and avoiding emotional investing. This works. Orezone, led by Patrick Downey, always tried to stay sane when other people, a lot of them, were going crazy worrying about this or that in West Africa and around the investing world. That's a competitive advantage. Good investors will not let emotions get in the way.
