Front Cover
Penguin, Dec 30, 2010 - Business & Economics - 240 pages
Timely advice from value-investing giants such as Warren Buffett, William O'Neil, Charles Brandes, and David Iben.

After the financial chaos and panic of the last few years, investors are looking to rebuild confidence and learn from the mistakes that led to the crash. In The Triumph of Value Investing, Janet Lowe urges readers to return to the basic principles of value investing as taught by the legendary Benjamin Graham, which remain just as relevant today. These lessons can help readers maneuver sanely through any type of economic turmoil and even benefit from further disruptions.

Lowe also includes interviews with leading value investors such as Warren Buffett, William O'Neil, and Charles Brandes, and analyzes dozens of U.S. and foreign stocks. She walks investors through the steps necessary to apply the principles that define value investing, with special emphasis on investing in biotech, high-technology, and foreign companies.

Whether readers are familiar with value investing or are just discovering it, they will find plenty of fresh information in The Triumph of Value Investing, which covers the latest concepts and players in the market.

As Lowe writes, "It is always healthy to check up on the validity of your own thinking. Considering the market breakdowns of the past decade and the confusion and discouragement many individual investors have suffered, this is an excellent time to restudy Benjamin Graham's concepts of value investing and learn how to apply them to a whole range of new challenges."
