The Wisdom of Great Investors: Part 1 of 6 – Avoid self destructive behaviour
- Posted by Dejan Pekic BCom DipFP CFP GAICD, Senior Financial Planner
Benjamin Graham (1894-1976) is considered to be the father of value investing and he and David Dodd published the Security Analysis in 1934.
Benjamin Graham was Warren Buffett’s teacher and to date, Security Analysis has been in continuous print for over 80 years with well over a million copies sold.
Security Analysis remains the investor’s bible and is heavy going which is why Benjamin Graham wrote The Intelligent Investor, original publication in 1949.
The Intelligent Investor is without doubt the definitive book on Value Investing and we strongly recommend you have read because for one thing, it explains why part time investors should never ever hold direct stocks.
One of Benjamin Graham’s great quotes is that… “Individuals who cannot master their emotions are ill-suited to profit from the investment process.”
