Remembering a Classic Investing Theory
More than 70 years ago, two Columbia professors named Benjamin Graham and David L. Dodd came up with a simple investing idea that remains more influential than perhaps any other. In the wake of the stock market crash in 1929, they urged investors to focus on hard facts — like a company’s past earnings and the value of its assets — rather than trying to guess what the future would bring. A company with strong profits and a relatively low stock price was probably undervalued, they said. Their classic 1934 textbook, “Security Analysis,” became the bible for what is now known as value investing. Warren ... market research, surveys and trends
re: remembering a classic investing theory - new york times
the Graham-Dodd approach produces a very different picture from the one that Wall Street has been offering. Based on average profits over the last 10 years, the P/E ratio has been hovering around 27 recently. That’s higher than it has been at any other point over the last 130 years, save the great bubbles of the 1920s and the 1990s. The stock run-up of the 1990s was so big, in other words, that the market may still not have fully worked it off. At noon today [10/10/08] , after several gyrations in the morning, the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index was at about 870. That meant the five-year p-e ratio was just below 12.

Economist's View: Robert Samuelson: Global Warming Simplicities
Robert Samuelson on global warming. There's plenty to talk about here, but my internet connection is less than perfect at the moment, so I am going to leave this one (and the others today) to comments: Global Warming Simplicities, by Robert J. Samuelson, Commentary, Washington Post : We in the news business often enlist in moral crusades. Global warming is among the latest.

Jeremy Grantham: Contrarian, Up to a Point
Jeremy Grantham is the wildly successful investor who writes entertaining quarterly letters to his fellow "die-hard contrarians." Grantham struck it rich investing against herd mentality and his missives usually sparkle with insights. I've been a fan for a long time. But there is one issue on which Grantham has jettisoned his contrarian impulses: global warming. He has joined the fashionable crowd of alarmists and doom-and-gloomers. This is evident in his most recent letter in which he outlines "Everything You Need to Know About Global Warming in 5 Minutes." It contains the standard doomster litany ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The unpopular case for A-Rod's brilliance
is perilously close to hitting the 600 home run mark. On Thursday night, the Yankees slugger hit number 599 against Kansas City. There are only six players ahead of him in career home runs. I'm telling you this now because you may miss it when it happens. I mean, it will be in the sports pages and on ESPN highlights, but I'm betting that the northeast media won't make a big deal about it. In fact, some of them are already dissing the accomplishment, like Terrence Moore on MLB's Fanhouse.com , who wrote a piece called "A-Rod's 600th Merits Shrugs, Not Hugs." By the end of this season, Rodriquez ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Or, shall I say "How do people STAY ignorant?" We all came into the world ignorant about how life works. Some wisen up, others stay in the dark. What is it that separate those two kinds of people? With the information explosion (internet, wikipedia, tons of tv stations/shows, the news) that we had within the last decade, how can anyone remain uneducated about basic things? Some examples: *I know a MAN who is 55 years old and does not know what testosterone is. But, he watches tons of educational TV like the discovery channel, TLC, history channel, KDNL, etc. *I know people who are in COLLEGE, who think Africa is a country. I ...
