Security Analysis Sixth Edition

by Ashik Shah on 1 November 2008

To many of us, the world of investment appears to be all about the latest fads and the newest ideas and techniques.

Here is evidence of an alternative view.  in 1934, Graham and Dodd published what became a classic on investment.  More than eighty years later, the same techniques outlined and explored with practical examples in the old book are still relevant and applicable today.

Published in 2008, Security Analysis: Sixth Edition, Foreword by Warren Buffett (Security Analysis Prior Editions) contains updates from some of the most well respected practitioners in the investment business have contributed to various chapters.  I have had the privilege of working with one of them, Bruce Berkowitz, and of closely studying the writings and investment work of many of the others.

This edition will give your good insight, inspiration to follow this disciplined approach, and confidence in its applicability today.
