Review Among the library of investment books promising no-fail
strategies for riches, Benjamin Graham’s classic, The Intelligent Investor,
offers no guarantees or gimmicks but overflows with the wisdom at the core of
all good portfolio management. The hallmark of Graham’s philosophy is not
profit maximization but loss minimization. In this respect, The Intelligent
Investor is a book for true investors, not speculators or day traders. He
provides, “in a form suitable for the laymen, guidance in adoption and
execution of an investment policy” (1). This policy is inherently for the
longer term and requires a commitment of effort. Where the speculator follows
market trends, the investor uses discipline, research, and his analytical
ability to make unpopular but sound investments in bargains relative to
current asset value. Graham coaches the investor to develop a rational plan
for buying stocks and bonds, and he argues that this plan must be a bulwark
against emotional behavior that will always be tempting during abrupt bull and
bear markets. Since it was first published in 1949, Graham’s investment guide
has sold over a million copies and has been praised by such luminaries as
Warren E. Buffet as “the best book on investing ever written.” These accolades
are well deserved. In its new form–with commentary on each chapter and
extensive footnotes prepared by senior Money editor, Jason Zweig–the classic
is now updated in light of changes in investment vehicles and market
activities since 1972. What remains is a better book. Graham’s sage advice,
analytical guides, and cautionary tales are still valid for the contemporary
investor, and Zweig’s commentaries demonstrate the relevance of Graham’s
principles in light of 1990s and early twenty-first century market trends.
