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.
