The Dhandho Investor - Book Review

The Dhandho Investor: The Low - Risk Value Method to High Returns

What Is It About?

The book describes fundamental investing as followed by the Graham-Buffett style of value investing. The book covers topics such as business analysis, developing a focused portfolio, and understanding the value of finding low risk-high probability of success investments. Overall, the book helps new investors achieve success in the stock market following a disciplined investing approach.

What Did I Get Out Of It As A New Investor?

Straight forward book on value investing. Using examples from his own work as a private fund manager the author helps the new investor understand how to use a focused fundamental style of investing in order to achieve success. Touching on such important topics as discounted cash flow analysis, competitive advantage, and margin of safety, the book educates the new investor on the basic principles that Warren Buffett and others encourage all investors to follow. Short and to the point, the book delivers a lot of value to the new investor.

The Good News

For those who are looking for a solid introduction to focused value investing this book does the job.

The Bad News

Great book for the new value investor, less so for the more experienced investor already adept at using the techniques of fundamental investing.

The Bottom Line

If you want a book to help you understand value investing, this book can help you accomplish your goal.

My goodness, you've read a lot of books for a new investor...

I haven't read any yet...

But I like to write about investments on my blog. I think that is kind of funny. I just apply math to investments.

I have a web site where I give advise on penny stocks and stocks under five dollars. I have many many years of experience with these type of stocks. If their is anyone that is interested in these type of stocks you can check out my web site by just clicking penny stocks. I would like to take a moment to talk about low price stocks not classic penny stocks or stocks under one dollar the term most people most often think of when the word penny stock is used. Their are companies of really decent quality trading under five dollars’ but for every one company trading under five dollars that is of decent quality their are maybe ten of poor quality. So the really big difference between those investors that are tremendously successfull when it comes to investing in low price stocks and those investors that lose enormous amounts of money investing in stocks under five dollars’ is having a great deal of knowledge and experience when it comes to low price stocks’ or having a total lack of knowledge and experience when it comes to low price stocks. Finding quality stocks under five dollars requires a lot more research than finding a decent stock above ten dollars.


Great review
