What is coffee can investing?

        Many years ago when stock market in US was not online or share was traded offline as a paper, people were buying stock and they stored it in coffee can. Most of the cases they forgot about the stock which they bought. After some years when they found the stock from the coffee can, many times they became profitable. And they thought that time if they came to know about the stock before then sold it ago and could not gain profit.
       As they forget about the stock which they bought so they can hold the share in long term. Observing this incident portfollio manager Robert Kirby started this term 'coffee can investing'. Coffee can investing means buy a share and forget. As the people of US in past century bought the share and hid it in coffee can and forgot about the stock. Similiarly in 'coffee can investing' buy the share and forget about it. Forget means hold it for long term.
