Benjamin Graham Stock Ideas
About Benjamin Graham: The late Benjamin Graham may be the oldest of the gurus we follow, but his impact on the investment world lasted decades after his death in 1976. Known as both the “Father of Investing of value” and the founder of the entire field of security analysis, Graham mentored many of the greatest investors in history – including Warren Buffett – and inspired many others, including John Templeton, Mario Gabelli and another of Validea’s gurus, John Neff. Graham built his fortune and reputation after going through extremely difficult times, including the Great Depression and his own family’s financial struggles after his father died when Benjamin was a young man. His investment business posted annual returns of around 20% from 1936 to 1956, far exceeding the average market return of 12.2% during this period.
