Do you care about your money? Then spend a little time with Christopher Browne to understand what investing is all about so you can do a better job of investing. There are many ways to make money in today's market, but the one strategy that has truly proven itself over the years is value investing. Value investing consists of buying the stock of companies that trade for less than their intrinsic value to profit from their long-term performance. Value investing works. It has produced superior investment results to any other strategy. Best of all, it is easy to understand. As Warren Buffett has said, no more than 125 IQ points are needed. Any more and they are wasted. Author Christopher Browne has been a part of Tweedy, Browne Company--the oldest value investing firm on Wall Street, which has counted Benjamin Graham among its clients--for more than thirty years, and over the course of his career, he has successfully followed the value approach to investment management, buying bargain stocks around the world. Now, with "The Little Book of Value Investing," he translates this wealth-building strategy in a way that any investor can understand and apply to investing all over the globe. You will learn how to buy stocks like steaks--on sale--no matter where they are sold; how to put your money to work like a banker; and how to buy $1 for 66 cents. Browne's ideas can help prevent you from losing money by spotting false bargains. Most importantly, he clearly illuminates the first rule of investing: don't lose money. The beauty of value investing is its logical simplicity. Within these pages, high-caliber value manager Christopher Browne illustrates how to identify the "sales flyers," the market offers to profit, while avoiding bubbles and manias. This little book is a treasure trove of insight. In addition to teaching you how to uncover value stocks, you'll also learn how to: Give the companies you invest in a physical Send your stocks to the Mayo Clinic for a checkup with a sixteen-point checklist Find a specialist Stay the course and stay away from fleeting fads Written in a straightforward and engaging manner, "The Little Book of Value Investing" will help you to understand and implement one of the most effective investment strategies ever created.
