Understanding Margin of Safety
Nov 25, 2015

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

Reforms that India Can Bet On
The Modi government has initiated several measures to boost the present state of economy. It has announced several schemes towards the same. While some of reforms have proved to be quite worthwhile, however others have stood in the dark. Going forward, there are still many sectors that are reeling under pressures and could reap benefits with right reforms and measures by the government. We came across an article in Morningstar that shares six such concrete game-changing reform initiatives. Read them here- (Morningstar.in)

Why Moats are Important...
One of the key elements while evaluating a business is the moat that it possesses. Simply stated, moat can be termed as the competitive advantage that a company has over its peers. It makes the business an out stander and popularizes its brand value. Both, Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger have said much on the importance of this topic. This article gives you a detailed flow on the entire subject. Read on... (25iq.com)

The Checklist for Upcoming Fed Minutes
One of the most talked affairs in last few months have been the Fed’s stance on US interest rates. Hopes that the rates will be altered kept reining markets before every Fed minutes. And a similar fashion can be seen now. This is as the Federal Reserve is going to release its minutes from the FOMC’s October meeting. Read on here to know what could be the major highlights- (Bloomberg.com)

Understanding Margin of Safety
"If you were to distill the secret of sound investment into three words, we venture the motto, Margin of Safety". This interesting excerpt is from Benjamin Graham's The Intelligent Investor in Chapter 20. While much has been touted about this phenomenon, very few of actually understand about this concept. And there are others who give little value to this while taking their investment decisions. We came across an article on Old School Value that explains the significance of Margin of Safety in investing in quite an insightful manner. Read it here- (oldschoolvalue.com)
