Investing Philosophy

Grantham has built much of his investing reputation over his long career by correctly identifying speculative market "bubbles" as they were happening and steering clients' assets clear of impending crashes. Grantham avoided investing in Japanese equities and real estate in the late eighties, as well as technology stocks during the internet bubble in the late nineties.

Most recently, Grantham began warning about the overvaluation of equity and credit markets in 2006, well before the start of the present crisis.

Stock Market Valuation: October 1, 2011
I started this monthly market valuation series in December 2009. The motivation for the article was that I was getting tired of hearing that the market was overvalued because P/E TTM was 87. This was ridiculous because earnings were deflated by the worst economic crash since the great depression. However, the question was how to value the market from a purely quantitative methodology, while ignoring all the outside noise and macro predictions of where the economy is headed. I looked for several different metrics to evaluate the market which over time have proven to be effective and decided to look at all the metrics, instead of just focusing on the last 12 months of earnings.

Market Valuations and Expected Returns – Feb. 5, 2014
The U.S. stock market had an excellent 2013. The performance of all three major U.S. stock indexes was the best since the financial crisis in 2008. The S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average continually hit historical highs. Yet the real reason for the bull market is nothing less than QE. Though some investors think the fundamentals of the U.S. economy continued to improve, for most Wall Street analysts, the Fed’s $85 billion monthly debt purchase plan is the real driving force behind the bull market.

Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Pension Managers – John Mauldin
We do not have to look to Greece to find massively underfunded obligations. Here in the U.S. we can find hundreds of examples, willingly created by politicians and businessmen who proclaim they are working for the public good. We call them pension funds, but they’re just another form of unfunded debt. A sovereign bond is a promise to pay a certain amount of money over time. A defined-benefit pension fund is a promise to pay a certain amount of income over time. The value of either is determined by the ability of the government or the pension fund (or its sponsor) to pay. More...

Investing Lessons of the Recent Oil Drop From Two Legendary Investors Howard Marks, Jeremy Grantham - Investing Lessons Of The Recent Oil Drop From Two Legendary Investors
The recent price drop of oil has taken the spotlight of the media almost everyday. Plenty of experts have expressed their opinions on why they think it dropped so fast and what “should” happen in the future. Personally I found most of them uninspiring as what they said reflect upon almost what the public knows. However, there are two brilliant memos from two legendary investors, Howard Marks (Trades, Portfolio) and Jeremy Grantham (Trades, Portfolio), who offered far superior insights on what happened to oil price and where it is headed for the future. I’ve taken the time to organize my notes on these two articles in a way that illustrates a few important topics in investing. This is by no means an article on oil per se. What I wanted to share with More...
