“Although it’s easy to forget sometimes, a share is not a lottery ticket… it’s part-ownership of a business.” ~ Peter Lynch

Value Investing Quotable Quote by Benjamin Graham

Quotes by Benjamin Graham

“Wall Street people learn nothing and forget everything.”

"Investment is most intelligent when it is most business like."

"You are neither right nor wrong because people agree with you."

"A typical investor has a great advantage over the large institutions."

“It is absurd to think that the general public can ever make money out of market forecasts.”

“Even the intelligent investor is likely to need considerable willpower to keep from following the crowd.”

“I am no longer an advocate of elaborate techniques of security analysis in order to find superior value opportunities.”

"The chief losses to investors come from the purchase of low-quality securities at times of favorable business conditions."

“While enthusiasm may be necessary for great accomplishments elsewhere, on Wall Street it almost invariably leads to disaster”

“To achieve satisfactory investment results is easier than most people realize; to achieve superior results is harder than it looks.”

“The stock investor is neither right nor wrong because others agreed or disagreed with him; he is right because his facts and analysis are right.”

"An investment operation is one which, upon thorough analysis, promises safety of principal and an adequate return. Operations not meeting these requirements are speculative."

"Basically, price fluctuations have only one significant meaning for the true investor. They provide him with an opportunity to buy wisely when prices fall sharply and to sell wisely when they advance a great deal."

“Most of the time common stocks are subject to irrational and excessive price fluctuations in both directions as the consequence of the ingrained tendency of most people to speculate or gamble to give way to hope, fear and greed.”

“The individual investor should act consistently as an investor and not as a speculator. This means. That he should be able to justify every purchase he makes and each price he pays by impersonal, objective reasoning that satisfies him that he is getting more than his money’s worth for his purchase.”

“The one principal that applies to nearly all these so-called “technical approaches” is that one should buy because a stock or the market has gone up and one should sell because it has declined. This is the exact opposite of sound business sense everywhere else, and it is most unlikely that it can lead to lasting success in Wall Street. In our own stock-market experience and observation, extending over 50 years, we have not known a single person who has consistently or lastingly made money by thus “following the market.” We do not hesitate to declare that this approach is as fallacious as it is popular.”

Quote of the day: “”Bull markets are born on pessimism, grow on skepticism, mature on optimism, and die on euphoria. The time of maximum pessimism is the best time to buy, and the time of maximum optimism is the best time to sell,” ~ Sir John Templeton
