DEEP-VALUE INVESTING
• Investment philosophy started by Ben Graham and David Dodd
• Security Analysis, 1928
• Intelligent Investor, 1949
• Invest in companies trading significantly below their intrinsic value
• Margin of safety
• Capital Preservation is one of the primary goals of a value investor
• Portfolio Growth is secondary
• Risk management
• A high return is not necessarily a good return depending on the riskiness of the
investment
• Risk is not necessarily in the underlying asset, but the price you pay for that asset
• One of the most important attributes of a value investor is humility
• Just because you’re smart does not mean you can predict the future
