Timothy Vick is a fairly well known advocate for value investing, but in his latest book, he rolls out the mother-of-all value investors as a champion. In using Warren Buffett as the basis for his easily digestible lessons on value investing - the simple strategy of investing in companies that are currently undervalued by the market - Vick proves that the concept of an engaging investment book is not an oxymoron. By holding up the Buffett example, Vick illustrates the greatest axiom of value investing: Over time, the price of any asset will find its intrinsic value. Buffett clung to this mantra throughout the ’90s, missing out on some of the biggest market returns in history. getAbstract strongly recommends this book for its clear explanation of how Buffett analyzed the New Economy market and how you can mimic him going forward. Because in the end, he was right and they were wrong.
