    Benjamin Graham developed "value investing", a style adopted by Warren Buffett, one of history's most successful investors. It is based on "fundamental analysis", which quantitatively compares a company's stock price to various measures of financial strength and promise. "Growth investing" is a fundamentally different style that seeks to identify tomorrow's great business successes. Learn the ins and outs, and the pros and cons, of these basic investment styles.

    Jean Paul Getty and John Templeton are great examples of "bargain hunters" or "contrarians" who seek to find promising stocks that are out of favor or fashion: and therefore undervalued. Slightly different are those who study cycles and waves to determine regular and (hopefully) predictable patterns of favor and disfavor in the market.

    Most investors do not get involved in speculation or commodities, but speculators play a vital function in financial markets by absorbing and managing risk. Technical traders practically ignore business results within specific companies, instead focusing on broad market indicators such as price trends, trading volume, and rate of change in major stock market averages.

    Saving, budgeting, and investing are keys to creating wealth, but there are many different philosophies about how to approach this essential task. The "investment philosophers" offer systematic beliefs about investing that often parallel other systems of human conduct (e.g. Taoism, the hunter-warrior). The financial economists (e.g. Fisher, Keynes) offer insights about how human behavior is collectively expressed in markets.
