"Graham's ideas inspired the investment community for nearly a century."--Smart Money "Graham's method of investing is as relevant today as it was when he first espoused it during the Roaring Twenties."--Investor's Business Daily Benjamin Graham's revolutionary theories have influenced and inspired investors for nearly 70 years. First published in 1934, his Security Analysis is still considered to be the value investing bible for investors of every ilk. Yet, it is the second edition of that book, published in 1940 and long since out of print, that many experts--including Graham protégé Warren Buffet--consider to be the definitive edition. This facsimile reproduction of that seminal work makes available to investors, once again, the original thinking of "this century's (and perhaps history's) most important thinker on applied portfolio investment."

How One Man Created a Profession—and Entirely Transformed the World of Investing “The small list of investment books that must grace the library of any serious investor—not to gather dust, but to be opened over and over again—just grew by one. This wonderful compilation of the wit and wisdom of Benjamin Graham is the new addition. Savor it. Learn from it. Treasure it.” John C. Bogle, founder and former Chief Executive, The Vanguard Group “If youth is measured by creativity and excitement about new ideas and a thirst for learning, then Ben Graham-in his early 80s-was the youngest guy in the room when two-dozen stellar investment managers met for three days to explain the inner workings of investment management.” Charles D. Ellis, CFA, Bestselling Author of Winning the Loser's Game “These writings, spanning over 30 years, help us understand even better the remarkable achievement of this visionary man and his lasting influence on the finance profession.” Burton Malkiel, Princeton University, Bestselling Author of A Random Walk Down Wall Street “Investing involves the intelligent triangulation between fundamentals, psychology, and prices. Benjamin Graham, Building a Profession . . . illustrates how this investment legend never stopped thinking about this multi-dimensional challenge.” Seth Klarman, The Baupost Group “Serious professionals in the investment business will delight in pouring over this and checking their own thoughts against those of the master.” Jeffrey J. Diermeier, CFA, Diermeier Family Foundation, and former CFA Institute president and CEO “This is a must-read for anyone interested in the history and development of our profession and the importance of critical investment thinking.” Gary P. Brinson, CFA, GP Brinson Investments “Some investors ('the happy few') know that Ben Graham's writings on financial analysis give them a leg up. So they will want to read this book, and other investors should.” Jean-Marie Eveillard, First Eagle Funds “The CFA Institute and Jason Zweig have performed an invaluable service to our profession in collecting these [writings] in one volume.” William H. Miller, CFA, Legg Mason Funds Management About the Book: When Benjamin Graham began working on Wall Street in 1914, the center of American finance resembled a lawless frontier. The concept of regulatory laws was in its infancy, the SEC wouldn’t see the light of day for 20 years, and many firms hid assets and earnings from nosy outsiders. And security analysts didn’t exist as we know them. They were called “diagnosticians,” and they didn’t do much analyzing. These investors prided themselves on going with the “feel” of the market, and most of them rarely looked at a financial statement. Appalled by the lack of research and quantification, Benjamin Graham set out to change all this—and ended up creating the discipline of modern security analysis. A collection of rare writings by and interviews with one of financial history’s most brilliant visionaries, Benjamin Graham, Building a Profession presents Graham’s evolution of ideas on security analysis spanning five decades. Articles include: “Should Security Analysts Have a Professional Rating? The Affirmative Case” Financial Analysts Journal (1945) “Toward a Science of Security Analysis” Financial Analysts Journal (1952) “Inflated Treasuries and Deflated Stockholders: Are Corporations Milking Their Owners?” Forbes (1932) “The Future of Financial Analysis” Financial Analysts Journal (1963) “Controlling versus Outside Stockholders” Virginia Law Weekly (1953) These pages reveal the revolutionary ideas of a man who didn’t so much find his calling as he created it from scratch—and opened the door for entire generations of investors.

The Myth of Private Equity

An Inside Look at Wall Street's Transformative Investments

Once an obscure niche of the investment world, private equity has grown into a juggernaut, with consequences for a wide range of industries as well as the financial markets. Private equity funds control companies representing trillions of dollars in assets, millions of employees, and the well-being of thousands of institutional investors and their beneficiaries. Even as the ruthlessness of some funds has made private equity a poster child for the harms of unfettered capitalism, many aspects of the industry remain opaque, hidden from the normal bounds of accountability. The Myth of Private Equity is a hard-hitting and meticulous expos from an insider's viewpoint. Jeffrey C. Hooke--a former private equity executive and investment banker with deep knowledge of the industry--examines the negative effects of private equity and the ways in which it has avoided scrutiny. He unravels the exaggerations that the industry has spun to its customers and the business media, scrutinizing its claims of lucrative investment returns and financial wizardry and showing the stark realities that are concealed by the funds' self-mythologizing and penchant for secrecy. Hooke details the flaws in private equity's investment strategies, critically examines its day-to-day operations, and reveals the broad spectrum of its enablers. A bracing and essential read for both the financial profession and the broader public, this book pulls back the curtain on one of the most controversial areas of finance.

“They laid out a road map for investing that I have now been following for 57 years. There’s been no reason to look for another.” —Warren Buffett, on the writings of Benjamin Graham Legendary investing author and philosopher Benjamin Graham lived through interesting times. Soon after his graduation from Columbia College, the nation entered the First World War. As the stock market fluctuated in wild dips and peaks, the government seized control of the railroad industry, inflation and interest rates rose dramatically, and economic depression loomed on the horizon. During these events—and perhaps inspired by them—Graham began writing articles for The Magazine of Wall Street, putting to paper his earliest ideas on value investing and security analysis. For the first time, these important works have been anthologized into a single volume. Benjamin Graham on Investing is a treasure trove of rare and out-of-print articles that document the early flashes of genius from a man whose ideas and theories would revolutionize investment philosophy and inspire the careers of such luminaries as Warren Buffett, Seth Klarman, Charlie Munger, and countless other top-tier investors. The early works of Benjamin Graham have never been as relevant as they are today. The world’s markets are undergoing changeon a scale not unlike that of Graham’s era. David Darst, one of the world’s most respected experts on asset allocation, provides insightful analyses connecting Graham’s articles to events today. ,i>Benjamin Graham on Investing is a timeless classic that continues to have relevance more than 30 years after the author’s death.
