Book-review: The little book of value investing, Brown

A classic value investing book, that would have been a better read for me if I had not read so many good books before…

The book was well written and structured and included largely the same content as many other books on value investing, but I preferred magic formula. It was more fun to read and proved statements with empirical data, which I liked. Below I simply list a few non-compete bullets abiut of the book’s content:

Low P/E and P/B multiples with high ROCs from an international list.

Ask questions

  • Outlook for pricing? Price increases can have. A big effect on profitability
  • Can the company sell higher volumes?
  • Improving gross margins?
  • Can the company control expenses?

Time in the market! is what really counts for the longterm.
