    A peek into the mind of a value investor

    Here is today's recommended reading list from Equitymaster...

    What is better, stock picking or big picture?
    When it comes to big picture stuff, there are few as respected as the chief investment strategist at GMO, Mr Jeremy Grantham. Therefore, it would be a good idea to get his perspective on why he feels it is the big picture view that matters. Read about this and his views on other financial matters in this short interview. (The Globe and Mail Inc)

    Will Bitcoin survive the crisis?
    Bitcoin, after being in limelight for a huge gain in value is in the midst of a crisis. The very qualities that have made it popular and distinguish this virtual currency from conventional ones have come under fire. Will Bitcoin be able to survive the current crisis? Read on to find out. (The Wall Street Journal)

    A peek into the mind of a value investor
    Value investing is not a magic formula for investing. It is an approach, a way of thinking and investing. Prudence, patience and discipline are the cornerstones of value investing. And these skills can be honed over time with study and practice. So it's always worthwhile to learn from other practising value investors. In this insightful article, a fund manager shares his ideas and views about value investing. (Morning Star)

    Does buy and hold strategy work in stock markets?
    Risk is as important an aspect of investing as returns. Most investors seek options like bonds or move money out of the market at the first sign of trouble. But can one hope for a diversification within stock markets only? The author believes this is possible to make gains by simply buying and holding stocks in the long run. Read on for the details... (MarketWatch)

    Investing myths
    Many a times emotional sentiments hinder investment decisions. And investors generally tend to be vulnerable to the groupthink and settle down with the herd mentality. And many-a-times end up losing money in stock markets. Investors preferring to be a contrarian, but ending up flowing with crowd is a common phenomenon. And one of the biggest ironies in investing is that while almost everyone thinks they are a contrarian, almost no one actually is. How? Well, the article below helps unleash these ideas and makes once aware of few myths with respect to investing. Read on the interesting piece to know more... (The Motley Fool)
