Book Description

23 April 1999
"The sillier the market′s behavior, the greater the opportunity for the business–like investor. Follow Graham and you will profit from folly rather than participate in it."–Warren E. Buffett. "[Graham] is the genius who literally created the framework for investment analysis that leads to successful investing. Like that other genius Edison, Graham created light where there was none." –Bill Ruane, Sequoia Fund. "It′s never the wrong time to invoke the name of Benjamin Graham, value investor par excellence." –Money "The search for intelligent investing should begin with the remarkable Benjamin Graham′s timeless teachings. Read Lowe′s book and you′ll learn to seek what the original master sought as she helps Graham reclaim his rightful place as the most important and extraordinary investment writer of any generation."–Kenneth Lee, author of Trouncing the Dow. Known as the "father of value investing," Benjamin Graham was–and is–one of America′s most lauded financial thinkers. Billionaire investor Warren Buffett, a former student of Graham, extols him to this day. Brilliant, successful, and ethical, he revolutionized investment philosophy by introducing the concepts of security analysis, fundamental analysis, and value investing–theories that have become timeless essentials of the field. Now, Janet Lowe, author of Benjamin Graham on Value Investing and Warren Buffett Speaks, reintroduces the foundations of Graham′s eminence–including his ever–relevant market observations and his assessment of long–term economic problems–by presenting a unique compilation of his writings that contains rare and/or previously unpublished articles, lectures, and interviews. Almost twenty–five years after his death, Benjamin Graham continues to have one of the largest and most loyal followings of any investment philosopher of this century. A prolific and popular writer whose trademark was blending original ideas with wit and intelligence, he has guided and inspired Wall Street professionals with his thoughtful ruminations and piercing insights on a host of investment and economic topics. Though bits and pieces of this material are widely quoted even today, the full writings have not always been easy to find–until now. The result of in–depth research, The Rediscovered Benjamin Graham brings together the very best the investment legend had to offer, including such incisive works as: ∗ "Inflated Treasuries and Deflated Stocks: Are Corporations Milking Their Owners?" ∗ "The Ethics of American Capitalism". ∗ "Proposals for an International Commodity–Reserve Currency". ∗ "The New Speculation in Common Stocks". ∗ "Is American Business Worth More Dead Than Alive?". ∗ "The Simplest Way to Select Bargain Stocks". A groundbreaking volume that fills an important niche in investment literature, The Rediscovered Benjamin Graham is destined to become as timeless a classic as its distinguished subject.

Amazon Review

In The Rediscovered Benjamin Graham Janet Lowe finds plenty of value for readers from one of the greatest seers and bargain hunters in Wall Street history. Lowe, a veteran financial journalist and editor, showcases a wide range of Graham's writings, lectures, speeches and interviews from the 1930s to the 1970s. A money manager, author and adjunct professor at Columbia University, Graham became a millionaire by buying beaten up stocks following the 1929 crash. Warren Buffet was an early enthusiast of Graham, whose style of investing and advice remain important nearly 25 years after his death. Graham preached the need to buy companies at a major discount to the rest of the market, based on factors like book value, dividend yields and price-to-earnings ratio. "Graham still has one of the largest and most loyal followings of any investment philosopher of this century," Lowe writes in the preface. "The more readers study Graham's value investing principles, the more loyal they are likely to become."

The book includes "Renaissance of Value," an address by Graham in 1974 that foreshadowed the bull market of the next decade; "Is American Business Worth More Dead than Alive?", Graham's three-part series in Forbes in 1932 that correctly heralded the deals on Wall Street at the time; and "Interviews with Benjamin Graham," three magazine articles about his musings in retirement after 60 years of investing. Graham, known for his books Security Analysis and The Intelligent Investor, could be amazingly prescient. But he also made lots of mistakes, leading him to conclude that no one could be precise about the direction of the stock market. "The only thing that we can be pretty sure of, perhaps, is that we are acting reasonably and intelligently," he said in a lecture 50 years ago. "And if we are wrong, as we are likely to be, at least we have been intelligently wrong and not unintelligently wrong." As with most books by and about Graham, this belongs on the shelf of any value investor. --Dan Ring,


"Graham′s thoughts are as relevant as they ever were. Go forth and seek value." (Investor′s Week, 2nd November 2000)

5.0 out of 5 stars Investment Wisdom Straight from the Source 15 Nov 2009
This book is collection of articles written by Benjamin Graham. Most other books on Graham explain the value investing philosophy, but this book allows readers access to the primary source so that they can make their own determinations and conclusions. It is similar in a way to The Essays of Warren Buffett by Cunningham, which is also a collection of writing straight from the source.

Every investor will find Graham's writing educational. If Warren Buffett found Graham's teachings important to his investment success, then this means that the information is valuable. I found the Testimony before the Committee on Banking and Currency, United State Senate, very interesting. This section is in a question and answer format where Graham answers the Chairman's questions. I highly recommend this book to any value investor.

- Mariusz Skonieczny, author of Why Are We So Clueless about the Stock Market? Learn how to invest your money, how to pick stocks, and how to make money in the stock market

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful supplement to previously issued material 27 Nov 1999
By S. Schneider - Published on
I've profited handsomely in a real-time portfolio over less than 6 months from ideas accumulated from my reading of this nice collection of articles. Before picking up this text, I expected it would contain mainly writings from Graham's earliest years --writings destined to be melded into the first edition of "Security Analysis." There are a couple of such pieces, but I was most taken with the pieces written towards the end of his life. Some of these are interviews. Graham generated financial ideas for the individual investor until the very end of his life, and this book is currently the only published repository for these. I'm not sure if someone just coming to Benjamin Graham will derive the greatest benefit from this book, but anyone who has a passiing familiarity with "Security Analysis", "The Intelligent Investor" and "The Interpretation of Financial Statements" will derive great pleasure and a goodly number of valuable insights from this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Previously unpulished Benjamin Graham 15 April 2007
By Steve Burns - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Janet Lowe has done an outstanding job collating and introducing each section of this book of previously unpublished articles, lectures, and interviews from the father of value investing. I believe anyone reading this book will get a huge value out of it. This book is a great addition to Mr. Graham's books. It is also a great book to read for those new to Graham's teachings of buying good stocks when their prices are below intrinsic value. Graham's methods of finding good stocks at fair prices by examining their equity to asset ratios, book value, and P/E multiples brought the Graham-Newman partnership over a 20% annual return on equities for 20 years. Followed by his pupil Warren Buffet using and refining his techniques to return over 20% a year for 40 years and eventually lead Warren Buffett to be worth $40 billion thanks to using his value investing for the holding company Berkshire-Hathaway. I sit up and listen to anything these two great men have to say. I also recommend reading Graham's Intelligent Investor and Security Analysis, and "The essays of Warren Buffett" by Cunningham.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent primary materials 27 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on
This is an excellent collection of lectures, writings, and other primary materials from Graham. It's not a tired third-party exposition of what Graham means to investing or what he meant to say in his writings. Like Buffett, Graham can be sublime, so the more context you have, the more valuable this book becomes. This collection is a good deal at five times the cover price.
A small observation, though. Who calls Ben Graham "the father of financial advice?" "The father of fundamental analysis" is more common. I don't know where Lowe got that, but I've never heard that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 5/5 9 Oct 2008
By W. Campbell - Published on
I don't think too many people know about this book, however, everyone should. It is an easy, quick read culminating Graham's entire philosophy. It also includes interviews near the end of his great life- and still then his mind is sharp.

Another thing I found interesting was in the last interviews of the book, Graham had begun to believe that investing should be extremely simple- and I mean extremely simple- rather than the long, drawn out process that he had been doing his entire career. I will leave you with one quote:

They called it the "Bible of Graham and Dodd." Yes, well now I have lost most of the interest I had in the details of security analysis which I devoted myself to so strenuously for many years. I feel that they are relatively unimportant, which, in a sense, has put me opposed to developments in the whole profession. I think we can do it successfully with a few techniques and simple principles. The main point is to have the right general principles and the character to stick to them.
