As an advisor, I’m always keeping my ears attuned for tidbits which will help me improve. To this end, I have four books on my 2014 reading (or re-reading) list. They are:
1) The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham, published by Harper Business
2) Graham and Dodd’s Security Analysis, published by McGraw Hill
3) Irrational Exuberance by Robert J. Shiller, published by Broadway Books
4) Manias, Panics, and Crashes by Kindleberger and Aliber, published by Palgrave Macmillian.
In this post, I’ll make a few comments on the first book, The Intelligent Investor, even though I’m only in the early stages of it.
When it comes to investing, there’s a great deal of wisdom out there. Hence, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. In fact, in the forward, written by John Bogle, and the introduction to The Intelligent Investor there’s enough wisdom to let the reader know that this is a book filled with good advice.
