Benjamin Graham

An analyst who is considered the father of value investing. This is an investment strategy in which one seeks securities thought to be undervalued. His seminal works, Security Analysis and The Intelligent Investor, are both considered classics and are still studied. Among Graham's most important precepts is the idea that a share in a publicly-traded company confers ownership in a business, and one must treat investing as buying a business that one believes to be profitable. Graham's approach contrasts with investors who use methods such as arbitrage to make quick profits. He lived from 1894 to 1976.
