Stock Market Analysis – Selected Readings

I recently read few Articles / Descriptions about the investment style adopted by Benjamin Graham which also covered about his two books “Security Analysis” and “The Intelligent Investor”. I would like to share two of those articles in addition to one outstanding thesis work based on Graham’s investment philosophy.

In the first article, Richard M. Rockwood gives a brief account of what Graham has written in the bible of Investment “Security Analysis”. Rockwood has in fact given the essence of Graham’s investment methods and I think it would be extremely useful to people who have not read the Book or who does not have time to read it either. Please visit the following link to access the article or download the same.

The second article has been written by Jason Zweig (He is the one who revised “The Intelligent Investor” in 2003) and he gives his view points about Graham and his ideas.

But he explains more about Graham as a person and why he is considered as the Father of investing. You can read the article at the following link or download the same.

For investors who are more interested to know how Graham’s investing methods would be applied to our own benefit, I have uploaded a research thesis written by two Swedish students. They have tested the Graham’s methodologies to the present day Sweden stock market and proved that they could beat the market. They have explained in great details about how to select the stocks based on Graham’s methodology, various factors to keep in mind while selecting stocks, reasons for value investing etc. If you read the full paper, I am sure you will get more idea about value investing and you could apply the same in your investment approach.

You can find the complete thesis at

Since, it contains more pages; you would be better served if you download the paper and read it.

These are classic books which should be read by every investor...Warren Buffett too recommends these books for greater grip and understanding of valuation...

i would also like to suggest the book "One Up on Wall Street" by Peter Lynch...He is one of the smartest investors in Wall Street and this book is a great read for all who want to invest...

This book does not talk only about financials...its talks more on how can we use our common sense and what we see everyday to invest in a better fashion...
