Says Bill Ackman of Pershing Square Capital Management about The Art of Value Investing: "I learned the investment business largely from the work and thinking of other investors. The Art of Value Investing is a thoughtfully organized compilation of some of the best investment insights I have ever read. Read this book with care. It will be one of the highest-return investments you will ever make." Based on interviews with the world's most-successful value investors, The Art of Value Investing offers a comprehensive set of answers to the questions every equity money manager should have thought through clearly before holding himself or herself out as a worthy steward of other people's money. What market inefficiencies will I try to exploit? How will I generate ideas? What will be my geographic focus? What analytical edge will I hope to have? What valuation methodologies will I use? What time horizon will I typically employ? How many stocks will I own? How specifically will I decide to buy or sell? Will I hedge, and how? How will I keep my emotions from getting the best of me? Who should read The Art of Value Investing? It is as vital a resource for the just starting out investor as for the sophisticated professional one. The former will find a comprehensive guidebook for defining a sound investment strategy from A-to-Z; the latter will find all aspects of his or her existing practice challenged or reconfirmed by the provocative thinking of their most-successful peers. It also is a must read for any investor – institutional or individual – charged with choosing the best managers for the money they are allocating to equities. Choosing the right managers requires knowing all the right questions to ask as well as the answers worthy of respect and attention – both of which are delivered in The Art of Value Investing.

"As with his weekly column, James Montier's Value Investing is a must read for all students of the financial markets. In short order, Montier shreds the 'efficient market hypothesis', elucidates the pertinence of behavioral finance, and explains the crucial difference between investment process and investment outcomes. Montier makes his arguments with clear insight and spirited good humor, and then backs them up with cold hard facts. Buy this book for yourself, and for anyone you know who cares about their capital!" —Seth Klarman, President, The Baupost Group LLC The seductive elegance of classical finance theory is powerful, yet value investing requires that we reject both the precepts of modern portfolio theory (MPT) and pretty much all of its tools and techniques. In this important new book, the highly respected and controversial value investor and behavioural analyst, James Montier explains how value investing is the only tried and tested method of delivering sustainable long-term returns. James shows you why everything you learnt at business school is wrong; how to think properly about valuation and risk; how to avoid the dangers of growth investing; how to be a contrarian; how to short stocks; how to avoid value traps; how to hedge ignorance using cheap insurance. Crucially he also gives real time examples of the principles outlined in the context of the 2008/09 financial crisis. In this book James shares his tried and tested techniques and provides the latest and most cutting edge tools you will need to deploy the value approach successfully. It provides you with the tools to start thinking in a different fashion about the way in which you invest, introducing the ways of over-riding the emotional distractions that will bedevil the pursuit of a value approach and ultimately think and act differently from the herd.

Investing legend Warren Buffett once said that “success ininvesting doesn’t correlate with I.Q. once you’re abovethe level of 125.

Chan interviewed 12value-investing legends from around the world, learning how theirpersonal background, culture, and life experiences have shapedtheir investment mindset and strategy.

All of these men became strong advocates of the approachdespite considerable age and cultural differences. Chan finds outwhy. In The Value Investors, readers will also discover howthese investors, each of whom has a unique value perspective, haveconsistently beaten the stock market over the years. Do they sharea trait that allows this to happen? Is there a winning temperamentthat turns the ordinary investor into an extraordinary one? Thisbook answers these questions and more.

My personal goal is to help people reach their financial goals. One way of doing that is through investing education. The book is my attempt to help with the development of a strong investing mindset and skillset to help you make better investment decisions. There is a gap in the value investing world. Benjamin Graham published The Intelligent Investor in 1949 with several subsequent editions up to 1972, while Seth Klarman published Margin of Safety in 1991. With more than 50 years since Graham published his masterpiece and almost 30 since Klarman's, there was the need for a contemporary book to account for all the changes in the financial environment we live in.Modern Value Investing book does exactly that, in 4 parts.Part 1 discusses the most important psychological traits a successful investor should have. Part 2 describes 25 tools that help with investment analysis.Part 3 applies those tools on an example. Part 4 is food for investing thought as it discusses modern approaches to investing. Approaches range from an all-weather portfolio strategy to hyperbolic discounting and others you can take advantage of when the time is right.

26 Real World Value Investing Case Studies from Thesis to Outcome Value investing theory is everywhere. But how do the real practicing value investors go about analyzing and picking stocks for their portfolios?Is it better for an aspiring value investor to learn the theory of value investing? Or should they review the practical examples in the form of case studies? Value investing in practice is different than value investing in theory In theory, there are formulas and calculations and models. You can view each stock through these lenses, and it either passes or fails.In practice, lines are not as sharply defined. Value investors often make calls based on imprecise information. Most of these situations are atypical, and therefore making reliable future estimates is an exercise in futility. And of course, the future is never what you imagine it to be.Stock market success depends on knowing the science (theory) but also the art of value investing. The art comes from experience, mainly your own, but also the experience of other value investors who are practicing in the field. This is where these case studies can be very helpful At Value Stock Guide, we have created a vast body of work in value investing with our past investments. This volume covers the investments we made and exited between 2011 and 2017. Each investment is a case study in itself and highlights the value investment process from due diligence to purchase and eventual profit realization. Whether you are a student of investment analysis, or perhaps a value investor yourself, you will find many little nuggets of wisdom in these case studies. You will see many different situations and scenarios play out, and how we at VSG responded to these scenarios. And you will also see the outcome of each of the investments.You will learn to analyze stocks properly, create processes to keep you disciplined, and you will also learn to keep your calm when an investment does not go your way and figure out a way of avoiding a loss. You will also learn the importance of not losing moneyMuch of the material is in the form of the communication we sent to our clients when each of these stocks was recommended. Therefore, the tone is conversational (not pedantic at all), and the material is not overly technical. One of the things I truly believe in is, if you are not able to explain the reasons why you are buying a stock to a 5 year old, you perhaps do not understand the stock well enough.

Provides a modern analytical framework for assessing a company's true value Written by a true value investor known for his ability to buy undervalued companies and re-sell them at a substantial profit, Value Investing provides an analytical framework that evaluates the impact of real events-including restructuring, regulations, mergers and acquisitions, and other important factors-on a company's value. Well-known for his success with distressed corporations and value investing, author Martin Whitman wages a controversial attack on the modern financial practice of focusing on price movements and short-term trading. In Value Investing, Whitman identifies fundamental factors affecting the value of companies and entire markets from the ground up and takes value investing one step further by demonstrating how industry movement and public policy decisions can lead to greater returns. He also highlights the shortcomings of all the popularly applied analytical techniques.
