It means you are buying the company for itself, and you would not
care what the market thinks of it. you know its a good buy hence even
if the market price of its stock is down, you would not pay any mind(referring
to the line where it says even if it[market] closed down)

Very volatile in the short term but will always be on the uptrend over the long term.
The longer the term, the better the chances of not having a negative return.
