The phone number is no more. But I continue to pay homage to Benjamin Graham in a variety of ways, as do countless other value investors.
Graham, who lived from 1884 to 1976, was an investment manager, professor (counting [url=http://www.gurufocus.com/StockBuy.php?GuruName=Warren+Buffett]Warren Buffett[/url] ([url=http://www.gurufocus.com/StockBuy.php?GuruName=Warren+Buffett]Trades[/url], [url=http://www.gurufocus.com/holdings.php?GuruName=Warren+Buffett]Portfolio[/url]) among his students) and author of seminal works on value investing such as “The Intelligent Investor” and (with David Dodd) “Security Analysis.”

Many investors are partial to stocks selling under $10.
Any finance professor will tell you that the absolute price of a stock doesn’t matter, as it’s an artifact of how many shares a company chooses to issue. Yet many traders feel that stocks below $10 have a certain roguish charm, and provide more “action” than higher-priced stocks.
