Overview

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 today and spreading his gospel to all of us.

Editorial Reviews

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.-Joseph Barth, U.S. Military Acad. Lib., West Point, N.Y.

    Insightful!

    Value investing is back in vogue. And so is Benjamin Graham. His books ¿ Security Analysis and the Intelligent Investor ¿ are the seminal texts on the subject of investing. Numerous investors (including Warren Buffett) owe their success to Graham¿s writings. Janet C. Lowe¿s book adds to the Graham myth. It weaves the story of Graham as a husband, father and loyal friend into his public life as a fund manager, writer and teacher. Lowe breathes life into an otherwise sterile topic, but her emphasis is on Graham¿s personal history more than on his investment advice. She does make it clear that Graham¿s fiscal belief system emphasizes intelligent investing by both the professional and individual investor. We recommend this book to people who follow ¿ and hope to profit from ¿ the vicissitudes of the stock market and of its indelible characters
