® Tony Gauvin, 2007 Value investing as time progressed 1949 B. Graham wrote the Intelligent Investor Margin of safety Build a 15 Ton Bridge for a 10 Ton Truck “Mr. Market” Just because “Mr. Market” is irrational doesn’t mean you should be too 1954 Templeton Fund (15%APR) Warren Buffet becomes the second richest man in the world by practicing value investing
® Tony Gauvin, 2007 Mr Market Graham’s parable goes something like this. Think of yourself as owning a share in a business in partners with others. One of your partners, say Mr Market, is somewhat of a neurotic who on any given day will offer to buy your share or sell you his at a specific price. His moods can fluctuate anywhere between incredible optimism and overwhelming depression. One day he will nominate a higher price to buy or sell, the next day he might increase it, lower it, or even appear uninterested in whether he buys or sells. The point that Graham makes is that Mr Market’s judgment is formed more by mood swings that by rational thought and that this gives the wise investor buying and selling opportunities. If Mr Market’s price is unreasonably high, then wise investors have the opportunity to sell. On the other hand, if it is unreasonably low, then they have the opportunity to buy..
