Overview

Value investing is an investment style, which favors good stocks at great prices over great stocks at good prices. Value investor extraordinaire Warren Buffett has used this style to become a billionaire. Even though we can’t promise such sweet success for everyone who uses this method, Value Investing For Dummies can show you how to use this disciplined, proven methodology help you make better-informed investment decisions.

Value Investing For Dummies guides anyone from rookie to savvy investor through the often-confusing maze of value investments and value investing techniques. Some level of familiarity and experience with investments and the world of investing is required—not that the information within these pages is hard or scary, but it will just flow more smoothly if you have a base level of knowledge of the topic.

Value Investing For Dummies takes you on a journey to the tried-and-true principles of valuing stock as one would value a business. (After all, how can you disconnect the two, as a share of stock is a share of the business?) This book covers tools that every value investor must be aware of and use, such as: annual reports, income statements, balance sheets, and price/earnings ratios. Value Investing For Dummies uses these tools to create a complete overview of this proven investment approach. You’ll discover why annual reports and information contained in them are so important, how you should use that information to improve your investing, and when you should make your investments. This book also features:

  • A primer in value investing math
  • Definitions and examples of frequently used value investing terms
  • Profiles of successful value investors such as Warren Buffett
  • Advice on where to find good value investments

From assessing financial statements to factoring in intangibles, Value Investing For Dummies shows you, step-by-step, how to calculate a company’s intrinsic value, zero in on bargains, and make sensible investments.
