Overview

Wisdom on Value Investing offers author Gabriel Wisdom's insights on succeeding in difficult markets. One of his favorite approaches-which is part classic value investing and part behavioral finance-is called "The Fallen Angels Investment Strategy," and it prepares investors to look past short-term value assumptions in order to capture profits. Throughout this book, Wisdom will show you how to capitalize on value plays where the fundamentals are actually strong, but the "general wisdom" surrounding the security has turned negative. He discusses how stocks with the most promise are ones that Wall Street has marked down without regard to their underlying value, and reveals how this type of intrinsic value discount provides a margin of safety during difficult times, and substantial upside rewards for those who find them early enough.

  • Takes value investing one step further by mixing significant amounts of behavioral finance into the analysis
  • Prepares investors to take advantage of other's mistakes
  • A time-tested strategy for any type of market-up or down

A classic look at value investing with a twist, this book will put you in a better position to succeed in both bull and bear markets.

Includes a Foreword by Mary Buffett and David Clark, authors of Buffettology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“If you are looking for a book that explains how to screen stocks for a long-term investment, then start with Wisdom on Value Investing. You'll find it as entertaining as it is informative. His tips just might make you a bundle of money, or protect you from costly mistakes.”
Thomas Bulkowski, thepatternsite.com, October 2009

“ … I liked this book because it presented value investing in a way that wasn’t intimidating. It touched on a lot of investing topics, such as portfolio management and categorizing Fallen Angels, and subjects I haven’t even mentioned and does so in a very casual and conversational way.”
Jim Wang, bargaineering.com, January 2010

"You really can become a better investor if you pay attention to fundamentals, and look for investments that are underpriced but have good upside potential. You may not score big in a year or two, but you are more likely to see steady gains over the years if you employ some of the techniques in Wisdom's book." ”
Miranda Marquit, AllBusiness.com, February 2010
