Magier der Märkte I und II, mMn neben Edwin Lefevre – Reminisicences of a stock operator die besten Bücher
Wow, more than 2 years have passed. The dirty cheap stock PSB gone to $24M market cap in 2015 and now turned back to $8M. Cheap price, bad biz..
I am learning more about good biz. Thank for your review of the book “Capital Returns”.
Bin gerade an: The Showball: Warren Buffett and Business of Life. Vermisse das noch auf der Liste….
is it possible to still buy fiat here and sell them at 7.75? What does one need to do?
No, it’s not possible anymore. You would have needed to buy them 3 days ago.
Great list. I am reading ‘Fooling Some People All the Time” now. Thanks for the recommendation.
I’m a value investor from Viet Nam(South East Asia). You have a great blog, contain many useful material.
thanks for you comment. Any recommendations for Vietnamese or other south east asian stocks ?
I have experience with Vietnamese market only. My kind of stocks might be too small and too illiquid for you guys.
If you are interested, check this PSB ticker. (Market Cap is around $8.8M, Net Cash $13.2M, no catalyst, no earning)
Not very screaming buy, but it’s ok and easy to describe ^_^. Have you ever invested in South East Asian?
Great, thanks. That is very helpful.
When a list like this contains many books I also enjoyed a lot, I am very open to the other recommendation. Thanks.
What I miss in many book list about value investing though, are books on accounting.
I have never been at business school or had any formal training in accounting practices, but that doesn’t keep me from trying to become a more serious investor. But I find it difficult to find good books that focus on valuing a company and really go into the accounting details at the same time. There are either accounting lesson books, which are certainly helpful for those who want to become an accountant (or pass the test in business schools) or in general on value investing principles (but somehow avoid going into details). So as long as I haven’t mastered the accounting I feel a bit like Mungers one legged man in an ass kicking contest.
Do you have recommendations? Or how did you master this skill?
personallyI do not know a single book or so. The best recommendation from my side would be to get hold of the CFA stage II accounting material. Maybe you can get cheap copies of the Schweser study notes from any past year. In my opnion, this is the best stuff available. Very thorough and practically.
Okay, this question is some years old, but maybe the answer helps someone else. For me, one of the best books on accounting in the context of investing is “Why stocks go up and down” by William H. Pike. I discovered this from a book recommendation by Michael Burry for starting investors referenced on the ValueWalk blog. I think it is really good book for understanding basic accounting concepts and their relation to investing.
I have check out a couple of books that I otherwise would not have know about if it wasn’t for your list. Thanks.
James Montier – Value Investing: Tools and Techniques for Intelligent Investment
Ben Graham – Security Analysis
thanks. I will add them to the list.
Ich hätte die Essays von Buffett noch dazugenommen…
