Market Metrics: Profitable vs Unprofitable
- Posted by Dejan Pekic BCom DipFP CFP GAICD, Senior Financial Planner
Benjamin Graham is just such a talent, even in death he is always right.
Graham laid the foundations for value investing principles which detail how to value an asset.
Many ‘things’ can be called an asset but Graham narrows down the investable universe of ‘things’ using key criteria, the most important of which is that the ‘thing’ you buy must produce a profit.
It is incredibly easy to get attracted to shiny and exciting ‘things’ on the promise that they will make a profit but time and time again it proves to be a financial disaster.
To give you an example of Graham’s thinking we have attached charts that track profitable and unprofitable ‘things’ and unsurprisingly, decade after decade the investors chasing the unprofitable shiny and exciting ‘things’ suffer financially.
