9780140255348: Benjamin Graham on Value Investing: Lessons from the Dean of Wall Street

The late Benjamin Graham built a fortune following his own advice: Invest in low-priced, solidly run companies with good dividends. Diversify with a wide variety of stocks and bonds. Defend your shareholders’ rights. Be patient and think for yourself. In an era when manipulators controlled the market, Graham taught himself and others the value of reliable information about a company’s past and present performance.

Times and the market have changed but his advice still holds true for today’s investors. In Benjamin Graham on Value Investing, Janet Lowe provides an incisive introduction to Graham’s investment ideas, as well as captivating portrait of the man himself. All types of investors will learn the insights of a financial genius, almost as though Graham himself were alive and preaching his gospel.

“No intelligent investor should fail to read and understand the works of Benjamin Graham. This fine book provides a bird’s-eye view of his investment perspectives; it is also a compelling biography of his remarkable life.”—John Bogle, chairman and founder, Vanguard Group

From Library Journal:

When he died in 1976 at the age of 82, Benjamin Graham was highly respected in the investment community for his groundbreaking contribution to security analysis. During his faculty years at Columbia University, he professed an analytic approach to identifying undervalued securities that proved successful. This approach was later codified with the help of David Dodd in the landmark book Security Analysis (McGraw Hill, 1962. 4th ed.). Lowe (Keys to Investing in International Stocks, Barron, 1992) provides here a superficial biography of Graham, a summary of his investment principals, and a brief survey of opinion on the value of Graham's investment theory in the contemporary stock market. Glimpses into Graham's interaction with the pre-Depression stock market lend some color to this book. While experienced investors will find nothing new here, beginners may find this a worthwhile primer to value investing.

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1996. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Benjamin Graham on Value Investing celebrates the 100-year anniversary of the birth of Benjamin Graham, the father of value investing. This is the first book to introduce Graham s investment theories in the context of both his life and work. Janet Lowe provides readers with an inside look at how Graham became one of the most influential investors of our time. Graham s own books are investment classics. Securities Analysis (first published in 1934) and The Intelligent Investor (first published in 1949) continue to sell steadily. In addition to this legacy, he has permanently influenced many successful investors, including Warren Buffett, the wealthiest man in America; William Ruane, founder of the super-successful Sequoia Fund; and well-known investor Walter Schloss. Graham was a prophet in a specialized, yet important realm of life. He preached commandments that any investor can use to navigate the vast and mysterious seas of the investment world: 1. Be an investor, not a speculator. 2. Understand the difference between price and value. 3. Rake the market for bargains. 4. Buy the Graham formula. 5. Regard corporate figures with suspicion. 6. Don t expect every decision to be perfect. 7. Smart investing does not require higher math. 8. Rule #1: Diversify with stocks and bonds. 9. Rule #2: Diversify with a wide variety of stocks. 10. When in doubt, stick to quality. 11. Dividends provide a clue. 12. Defend your shareholder rights. 13. Be patient. 14. Think for yourself. These words of wisdom form the basis of Graham s theories. Benjamin Graham on Value Investing will show individual investors, money managers, brokers and stockmarket mavens how to invest as if Ben Graham were alive todayand spreading his gospel to all of us.
