Known as the “Father of Modern Investing,” Benjamin Graham was actually a mentor of Warren Buffett’s. In fact, he is the very investor that is credited with coming up with the concept of “value investing,” which essentially boils down to the idea that we should buy securities that are currently underpriced as to maximize the profit that you can generate when they become fully-realized and profitable organizations.
Graham’s uber-renowned neoclassical investing texts, Security Analysis and The Intelligent Investor are historically important in the world of investing – focusing on investor psychology, concentrated diversification, activist investing and minimal debt. Numerous students of Grahams have garnered incredible success, like Buffett, Irving Kahn, Walter J. Schloss and William J. Ruane.
