Among the library of investment books promising no-fail strategies for riches, Benjamin Graham’s classic, The Intelligent Investor, offers no guarantees or gimmicks but overflows with the wisdom at the core of all good portfolio management.
The hallmark of Graham’s philosophy is not profit maximization but loss minimization.
In this respect, The Intelligent Investor is a book for true investors, not speculators or day traders.
He provides, “in a form suitable for the laymen, guidance in adoption and execution of an investment policy.”
This policy is inherently for the longer term and requires a commitment of effort. Where the speculator follows market trends, the investor uses discipline, research, and his analytical ability to make unpopular but sound investments in bargains relative to current asset value.
Graham coaches the investor to develop a rational plan for buying stocks and bonds, and he argues that this plan must be a bulwark against emotional behavior that will always be tempting during abrupt bull and bear markets.
Since it was first published in 1949, Graham’s investment guide has sold over a million copies and has been praised by such luminaries as Warren Buffet as “the best book on investing ever written.”
From the Back Cover of The Intelligent Investor
The greatest investment advisor of the twentieth century, Benjamin Graham taught and inspired people worldwide. Graham’s philosophy of “value investing”—which shields investors from substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies—has made The Intelligent Investor the stock market bible ever since its original publication in 1949.
Over the years, market developments have proven the wisdom of Graham’s strategies. While preserving the integrity of Graham’s original text, this revised edition includes updated commentary by noted financial journalist Jason Zweig, whose perspective incorporates the realities of today’s market, draws parallels between Graham’s examples and today’s financial headlines, and gives readers a more thorough understanding of how to apply Graham’s principles.
Vital and indispensable, The Intelligent Investor is the most important book you will ever read on how to reach your financial goals.
Benjamin Graham came up with the philosophy of ‘value investing’ which he taught at Columbia Business School in 1928 and eventually refined with input from David Dodd.
Benjamin Graham was a mentor to Warren Buffet, Irving Kahn and Walter Schloss – all of whom proclaimed that The Intelligent Investor was the best book ever written on investing.
