Benjamin Graham is the father of value investing, but his greatest investment success came from one growth stock that increased his net worth more than all his other investments combined. Benjamin Graham and the Power of Growth Stocks helps you rediscover the legendary investor’s forgotten growth-investing strategy through a cutting-edge approach to capturing profits in today’s volatile markets. Inside, leading investment manager Fred Martin shares the investing approach that was founded on Graham’s long-lost valuation formula.

Benjamin Graham

The Master

1948, legendary Columbia University professor Benjamin Graham bought a major stake in the Government Employees Insurance Corporation. In a time when no one trusted the stock market, he championed value investing and helped introduce the world to intrinsic value. He had a powerful valuation formula.

Now, in this groundbreaking book, long-term investing expert Fred Martin shows you how to use value-investing principles to analyze and pick winning growth-stock companies—just like Graham did when he acquired GEICO.

Benjamin Graham and the Power of Growth Stocks is an advanced, hands-on guide for investors and executives who want to find the best growth stocks, develop a solid portfolio strategy, and execute trades for maximum profitability and limited risk. Through conversational explanations, real-world case studies, and pragmatic formulas, it shows you step-by-step how this enlightened investing philosophy is successful. The secret lies in Graham’s valuation formula, which has been out of print since 1962—until now. By calculating the proper data, you can gain clarity of focus on an investment by putting on blinders to variables that are alluring but irrelevant. This one-stop guide to growing wealth shows you how to:

  • Liberate your money from the needs of mutual funds and brokers
  • Build a reasonable seven-year forecast for every company considered for your portfolio
  • Estimate a company’s future value in four easy steps
