Overview

The Book that Launched Value Investing, with Guidance and Insights that Stand the Test of Time

Security Analysis: The Classic 1951 Edition provides a rare glimpse into the fundamental building blocks of modern value investing, with insights and strategies for the modern individual investor that are as valuable today as they were more than half a century ago. It brings Benjamin Graham's proven methods for measuring asset values and cash flows, still the centerpiece of value investing worldwide, to today's investment professionals.

Focused on common stocks as a sound investment alternative for individual investors, this classic volume features:

  • Expanded material on stockholder-management relations—vitally important in today's era of improved corporate governance and stockholder empowerment
  • A step-by-step process for understanding income and balance sheets, and their direct relationship to future stock price appreciation
  • Historically proven guidelines for recognizing, and capitalizing on, profitable opportunities in secondary, little-known issues

In the search for stocks poised to beat the market, basic techiques and strategies still work the best. Security Analysis: The Classic 1951 Edition shows you how to look beyond market noise and confusion to find undervalued stocks, and assemble a diversified portfolio that will provide you with outstanding profits today and in the years to come.

Meet the Author

Benjamin Graham is widely acknowledged to be the father of modern security analysis. The founder of the value school of investing and founder and former president of the Graham-Newman corporation investment fund, he taught at Columbia University's Graduate School of Business from 1928 through 1957. Graham popularized the examination of price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios, debt-to-equity ratios, divident records, book values, and earnings growth, and he also wrote the popular investors' guide The Intelligent Investor.

David Dodd was a colleague of Benjamin Graham's at Columbia University, where he was an assistant professor of finance.

    graham at his finest

    this book is great. ive previously read grahams other book, ' the intelligent investor' and completely loved it. i decided to step up and read this 600+ page book. im currently up to page 450 and i have to say, ive learned a whole lot, especially on the topic of financial statements. now i must admit, there were times where i felt like i wanted to throw the book out the window, because his choice of words and vocabulary was hard to comprehend, but in the end, the knowledge graham preaches is priceless. this is not a stock book for beginners. you must already have some knowledge on the topic of stocks and stock investment to fully understand this book. after i finish this book, you better believe i'm going to reread this work of art. this book is great, just not for beginners though.
