Classic Strategies for Finding Investment Gems, Updated to Address the Realities of Today's Markets
Legendary investment pioneer Benjamin Graham called it his "margin of safety." Warren Buffett used its principles to make millions for patient investors, and amass one of the largest personal investment fortunes in history.

First published in 1989, Value Investing Today has since become a staple of modern value investing. Now in its revised and updated third edition to reflect today's broad advances in behavioral finance, technology, communications, and productivity, let it provide you with:

--From the Introduction
Value investing isn't about excitement, or headline-making discoveries, or any of the other things that light up journalists' eyes and stockbrokers' phones. Value investing is instead about companies with solid business fundamentals that, for whatever reason, have a current stock price that is less than their intrinsic value. It is about looking under the hood, kicking the tires, and buying the stock in those companies for seventy cents on the dollar or less.
Value Investing Today, Third Edition, is written for investors who understand the importance of knowing what they buy, and who have learned--often through hard, costly experience--that quick fixes more often than not just as quickly fail. This hands-on value investing guidebook will show you how to:
Most traders and investors want excitement in their stocks, news events that will propel stock prices into the stratosphere regardless of their true worth. Value investors, on the other hand, want stocks that are unnoticed by the crowd and, most important, selling for less than they are worth. They believe, and history has shown, that these solid companies will continue to perform well, and the gap between their market price and fair value will eventually close.
If you're looking for a stock poised to take the world by storm, a quick "ten-bagger," you should probably move on to more adventurous trading how-tos. If however, you are one of those serious investors willing to trade the dazzle of bright lights for the stability of substance and true worth, Value Investing Today is destined to show you how to construct a portfolio poised to stand the test of time, and get you to the finish line farAbout the Author:
