The book has lots of technical descriptions that need to be re-read, never mind the lost charts. If you have the book it would be great refresher.
I'm a lawyer and mediator. I represent businesses in disputes with their insurers and in other complex litigation. I also assist machinery companies and manufacturers (primarily international) with equipment sales, non-disclosure agreements, and business issues. I also mediate commercial disputes.
This relatively short book is full of a lot of good information. What I like best about it is that it is not just theory: It names names for model dividend based stock portfolios. The book's website provides updated information on the stocks named and the top 1500 stocks in the S&P.
The thing I loved about this book was that it provided practical information. Many of the things I have read regarding value investing thus far have been vague and very broad. This book actually spells out what you should be looking for and where. It offers insights that are useful and although value investing is somewhat of an art, I would still go as far as to say that it gives you a systematic framework to follow.
Loved the book. It's a great introduction to the way of stock market investing called Value Investing. The book gives great insights on the differences between Value and other strategies of stock investing. This is a must for anyone interested in long term, sustained growth in their portfolio as well as fundamentally analyzing companies for potential investments.
Useful historical backdrop on value investing which I did not have. Some useful thoughts on foreign accounting rules, and particular metrics.
Not very insightful on investing more broadly.
Value investing is the approach of many of the greatest investors in history... the idea of evaluating a business based upon the fundamentals of the business, and only buying it when it is selling at a good price is the foundation of this approach. This book is one that provides a good introduction to the approach.
