Guys, I have read the intelligent investor, security analysis, and margin of safety. What other value investing books do you recommend me to read?

I found that The Little Book That Beats the Market, and The Little Book of Value Investing were both very helpful and good reads.David ModeratorJune 9, 2018 at 2:46 amPost count: 166
‘One up on wall Street’ and ‘Beating the Street’by Peter Lynch are both excellent books, they are easy to read but contain a huge amount of useful and practical advice with regards to investing.
I would also recommend Greenblatt’s ‘You can be a stock market genius’ which, again, is easy to read but full of practical advice related to special situations investing.
I also recommend ‘Excess Returns’ by Vanhaverbeke and ‘Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits’ by Fisher.

I Would also reccomend reading about behavioral finance and read about the common mental traps we investors fall into, and then you try to make rules so you avoid these. controlling our lizard brain is one of the most important aspect of investing IMO.

I would put Poor Charlie’s Almanack on the list too. As much as you can argue it’s not a pure value investing book – it’s just very “pure” and should be included on every book list.

I recommend Value Investing Made Easy by Janet Lowe
The title seems a little Infomercial-ish 🙂 but it’s a great book that gives a solid treatment on the the fundamentals.

I would add a book or two that can help us learn about market euphoria/bubble history. Such as,
– A short history of financial euphoria by John Kenneth Galbraith
– Memoirs of extraordinary popular delusions and the madness of crowds by Charles Mackay

Books are great, however in investing it’s also pays off to understand companies deeply. Easiest way to do that is to read annual reports. You want to know the company you invest in better than 90% of the other investors. In that way you have a tremendous advantage.

The Acquirer’s Multiple by Tobias Carlisle is a good one too IMO.
Another source that I found helpful was reading shareholder letters and memos –
after having a general foundational understanding of value investing (see aforementioned books).
It provided further guidance and familiarity with these learned concepts in the real world. Adding to Rajiv R’ recommendations, although hindsight is a beautiful thing, I like to think of it as a way to learn from others, the change in market conditions (and attitudes) over time and lastly, “bridge” theory and practice.
Here’s a good starting point:
•Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders
•Howard Marks Memos

I’d like add the following for beginners and people looking to hone fundamentals:
How Buffett Does it: 24 Simple Investing Strategies from the World’s Greatest Value Investor by James Pardoe.
It’s provides an excellent explanation of the value investing philosophy with concrete examples.
The book is an easy and pleasurable read, perfect for someone starting out or looking to hone fundamentals.
