What drives intrinsic value?
Jul 28, 2014

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

Avoid these investing mistakes
It's quite common that whether the market is, in bull and bear markets, investors make some common investing blunders. Inspite, these mistakes are talked about or even critiqued at length, yet investors tend to repeat them. The author of this article too has emphasized about these common mistakes that investors make. And also discussed some worthy practices one call follow to avoid these investing slips. Read on to know about them... (PA Media Group)

What drives intrinsic value?
For a lot of investors, intrinsic value for a stock and discount to the prevalent stock price forms the basis of investment. However, arriving at this intrinsic value is quite a tricky task. As the author in this insightful article suggests, arriving at a certain intrinsic value may involve a lot of false sense of confidence that could lead to wrong investing decisions. Instead, it is better to be roughly right by focusing on some broader concepts. Read on to know more about the same. (GuruFocus)

What are Buffet's views on M&A?
As the competition intensifies and industry consolidates, the activity in mergers and acquisition increases. We see lots of excitement in the market whenever a merger or acquisition takes place. Even the company headed by Warren Buffet - Berkshire Hathaway, too has made many acquisitions, but Buffet is extremely wary when it comes to acquiring a company. So what are the key areas according to Buffet while making acquisitions? Read on to know about them... (The Motley Fool)

Investing legends on CAPM
The CAPM or capital asset pricing model is a concept that has not found much favour from some key value investors. Why? Well mainly because it focuses on the riskiness of the stock on account of its volatility rather than riskiness of the business. Here's an old article we found which discusses about capital asset pricing model and its irrelevance. For investors in India, we believe 15% would be a good benchmark for expected returns as it pretty much is equal to what the stock markets have returned annually over longer long periods. In any case, read on to know more about what some of the investors have to say on this concept. (GuruFocus)
