The Fundamentals of Investing 101
Value Investing was developed in the 1920s at Columbia Business School by finance adjunct Benjamin Graham. Roger recently recorded an educational video for investors who want to understand the fundamentals of a quality business and also what might be important in terms of value investing. In this 45-minute fundamental investing 101 session, Roger presents you some of the basic elements of identifying a quality business, finding that quality business at a rational price and how to identify companies with the ability to generate a high rate of return on equity over a long period of time. The video covers how to think about the stock market, identify quality businesses, some ideas for calculating or estimating the intrinsic value of a company, as well as some alternative ways of thinking about value. And then the single most important factor in determining a successful share market investment.
“Do not forego the opportunity to buy shares in extraordinary businesses because of near-term concerns about the economy, or because of fears that falling prices mean risks have increased.” Roger Montgomery
