Stocks are simple. All you do is buy shares in a great business for less than the business is intrinsically worth, with management of the highest integrity and ability. Then you own those shares forever. I will tell you how to become rich. Close the doors. Be fearful when others are greedy. Be greedy when others are fearful.

Marc Faber: market oversold

The stock market is as oversold as it has been since the crash of 1987 and the broader market could be start to rebound until early next year, Marc Faber, editor and publisher of the Gloom Boom and Doom Report, said Tuesday.

The market is possibly in "the most oversold condition" since perhaps Oct. 19, 1897, Faber told CNBC's "Squawk Box."

"Usually there is some seasonal strength between October and March" so it is possible the S&P 500 index will create a low between now and the end of the month, he said.

But even at 1,000 the S&P is not particularly attractive and investors will still have to grapple with falling earnings through 2009, Faber said.

"The fact is that earnings next year will continue to disappoint as the global economy is in recession," he said.

Longer-term investors will have to position themselves in emerging country stock markets to play the global recovery, Faber advised.
