For decades, Security Analysis by Ben Graham and David Dodd has been considered a must read and with good reason. The book is widely considered a classic due to in large part for introducing a framework that is considered  businesslike opposed to the speculative nature that Wall Street was used to at the time. The book introduced concepts and ideas that were foreign to Wall Street. For example, prior to Security Analysis, Wall Street put great emphasis on the companies earnings results opposed to the business assets and liabilities.  Not much has changed. I have tried reading Security Analysis but shipped the book back in large ...
However, the future distributions and the appropriate discount rate can only be assumptions. For the last 25 years, Warren Buffett has taken the value investing concept even further with a focus on "finding an outstanding company at a sensible price" rather than generic companies at a bargain price.

New Gold-Backed Currency Could be in Use Next Month | Investing ...
Malaysia, well, at least its northern state of Kelantan, is putting the Islamic gold dinar and silver dirham into circulation as legal tender and it could be implemented as early as mid-August. It won’t be the first nation using gold coins — Indonesia has already minted about 25,000 pieces for use in Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore — but, they are going to be useable in a rather comprehensive fashion. According to The Guardian: “If information on its website is to be believed, the council has the blessing of the state’s Islamist government, Parti Islam SeMalaysia (Pas), to kickstart the dinar in ... market research, surveys and trends

David Dreman, Contrarian Fund Manager, Exits Unbowed - News ...
Now he has been fired from the flagship fund that bears his name, despite what remains a good long-term record. The fund’s name will be changed, and the fund will take fewer risks. A drab industry will become a little drabber. In the past, the firings of once-celebrated fund managers have sometimes provided a market signal of its own — that the trend that led to their poor performance was about to end. If that were to happen this time, there could be a revival for so-called value stocks , and particularly for the beaten-down and almost universally disdained financial stocks. “The success of contrarian strategies ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Finance professors aren't the first group of people you'd approach for investment advice. Academics seem to know more about how to study money than to make it. And so much academic advice seems to squeeze the fun out of investing. Countless academics advise not trying to actively choose stocks but to simply index the market. And countless investors reject that advice. But if you end up in the same room with a couple of behavioural-finance economists, listen up. They study the psychology and behaviour of investors to see where they make mistakes. If you learn to spot and correct these mistakes, it may mean ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Book summary - "The Little Book of Value Investing" by Chris Browne.
I am presenting my summary of the book "The Little Book of Value Investing" by Chris Browne. Chris Browne who passed away in 2009 was one of the great value investors over the past 30+ years. This is an excellent book to re-inforce all the value investing principles and is a pretty quick read too. I will post the summary over multiple articles since my notes are long. Chapter 1: Buy stocks on sale. The basic concept of Value Investing is "Buying a business for far less than it is worth". Value investing is not a set of hard and fast rules. When prices drop, people buy more of the things they want and need, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Google Answers: Trading Against Market Psychology
Premise: The equity market tends to trade on emotions. Stocks get over-priced based on momentum and trader's emotions on certain stocks. Then it is only a matter of time before they go back down to a more sane P/E level since their price is not based on any underlying financial reasoning. The internet boom and bust is only the latest and greates example. I am wondering if there are any websites that address this very issue. When I did my own search "market psychology" kept popping up; however, every website that I visited treated "market psychology" as way for an individual trader to stay focused on their trading ...
