Book Description

Jan. 4 2011
Timely advice from value-investing giants such as Warren Buffett, William O'Neil, Charles Brandes, and David Iben.

After the financial chaos and panic of the last few years, investors are looking to rebuild confidence and learn from the mistakes that led to the crash. In The Triumph of Value Investing, Janet Lowe urges readers to return to the basic principles of value investing as taught by the legendary Benjamin Graham, which remain just as relevant today. These lessons can help readers maneuver sanely through any type of economic turmoil and even benefit from further disruptions.

Lowe also includes interviews with leading value investors such as Warren Buffett, William O'Neil, and Charles Brandes, and analyzes dozens of U.S. and foreign stocks. She walks investors through the steps necessary to apply the principles that define value investing, with special emphasis on investing in biotech, high-technology, and foreign companies.

Whether readers are familiar with value investing or are just discovering it, they will find plenty of fresh information in The Triumph of Value Investing, which covers the latest concepts and players in the market.

As Lowe writes, "It is always healthy to check up on the validity of your own thinking. Considering the market breakdowns of the past decade and the confusion and discouragement many individual investors have suffered, this is an excellent time to restudy Benjamin Graham's concepts of value investing and learn how to apply them to a whole range of new challenges."

1.0 out of 5 stars Too basic and inaccurate at times Sept. 1 2011
By Houman Tamaddon - Published on
It is a bit difficult to rate this book since its value is derived from the reader's previous knowledge. I have read numerous books on value investing and there was little new here. Lowe does not come up with any new insights, but I did not hold the lack of originality against the book. After all, it could serve as a review. As the author points out the principles of value investing are timeless. Still, advanced and intermediate investors will likely find the book too basic to be of any value.

What about the novice investor? It would serve as a nice overview of important principles in value investing. Even for those readers, there are better options, however. For example, "Buffettology" by Mary Buffett may be a more complete book.

What made me give the book a measly one star were some errors that I found inexcusable. This book is geared for novice investors and should make sure not to be confusing especially with basic definitions. For example, on page 87 the equation for Net Current Asset Value is wrong. The discussion that follows the definition would confuse many readers who are not familiar with the terms. On page 93, there are a few equations and once again there are mistakes here. Free cash flow, a valuable metric for value investors, is not explained adequately. At the minimum, a basic investing book should get these definitions right. It would have taken thirty seconds to double check the facts. On page 102, the explanation of retained earnings is grossly wrong. She states that retained earnings are an asset and implies that they reflect the company's profitability. This cannot be attributed to a mere typo either. Microsoft, one of the most profitable companies in the world has negative retained earnings on its balance sheet. Retained earnings can be confusing and the author does not serve readers well with her explanation.

On the positive side, Ms. Lowe does provide her readers with good general advice for investing.

It was rewarding and delightful to read such good writing about definable economic values, about underlying investing values. The words are well chosen, the concepts are so deeply understood by the author that the presentation is insightful, and the stories are interesting.
