Overview

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

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.
