Value Investing: Buy Cheap, Obscure and Out of Fashion

August 25, 2009
(GuruFocus, August 25) Columbia Business School Professor Bruce C. Greenwald is seen in this video defining what value investing is all about. The school carries the torch for value investing. Ben Graham taught there before; Warren Buffett studied there; and another investment Guru, Joel Greenblatt still teaches there. If you want to learn value investing from the source, that is a business school you may want to consider.

Here are my notes: Value Investing consisting of a basic investing process starting by identifying potential stocks among those are ugly, cheap, obsure, small capitalization, and out of favour. What distinguishes value investing is the approach to valuating stocks, which starting with balance sheet. Most people do not, instead they focus on income statement. Value investing has been proved beyond doubt to be a better approach to investing. The reason it succeeds is that most people go where the dreams are. Value investors indentify where the market is crazy about and looking for opportunities that most investors are turned off about.

I want to thank Ravi Nagarajan of www.rationalwalk.com for the video tip.
