Father of Value Investing

Benjamin Graham, well known for his book The Intelligent Investor, is widely regarded as top finance and investing guru.

Benjamin Graham is also widely known as the "Father of Value Investing"

He co-wrote the book Security Analysis back in 1934. Decades later, the book is still among the greatest books, and most likely the only one required to grasp how to value a corporation.

His book, The Intelligent Investor is widely regarded as one of the greatest books on investing ever written.

Graham argued that by following a sound investment strategy in a disciplined manner, regular people may outperform market specialists and benchmark indexes.

He thought that investing temperament was more important than investing knowledge in order to make greater returns in the market.

Graham takes a quantitative approach to investment. This entails choosing stocks based on a thorough examination of a company's financial documents.

It focuses less on qualitative aspects like a company's managerial quality or economic moat (i.e. competitive advantage).

Benjamin Graham, the father or value investing, is credited for coining the terms 'Mr. Market' to explain stock price volatility, as well as 'Margin of Safety' to describe the necessity of purchasing equities that are trading at a discount to their true worth.
