Investment Books

>> Saturday, January 23, 2010

There are millions of investment books in the market.

My personal opinion of the top 5 must read are:

1. The Intelligent Investor

This is perhaps the most important and influential book ever written about value investing. Originally published in 1934 by Ben Graham, this work has been heralded by such notable investors as Warren Buffett as "the best investing book ever written".

2. One Up on Wall Street
In it, famed mutual fund manager Peter Lynch teaches how to use what is already known to make money in the market.

3. The Essays of Warren Buffett
In this book, Professor Lawrence Cunningham selects and arranges the Berkshire Hathaway shareholder letters, written by Buffett, by topic and relevance. It teachs a lot about management, business valuation, investing philosophy, the use of stock options, economic and accounting goodwill and more.

4. Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits and Other Writings
Philip Fisher is one of the most prominent and important financial thinkers in history. In this book, he examines the fifteen qualities of an excellent business.

5. Security Analysis
Security Analyis was originally written by Professor Benjamin Graham in 1934. The seven hundred page investing treatise will teach how to analyze and value almost any investment.

Instead of investing money to help the gurus grow richer, these books provide much more value at only a fraction of the cost for a "3 day miracle course". Investing is not easy, it is important to take it seriously, proper education is absolutely necessary.

I read a few forex books, but nothing in particular that really caught my attention.

Though the book "Currency Trading and Intermarket Analysis" by Ashraf Laidi, was highly recommended to me. Have not found the time to read it yet, you could try it and let me know. :)

There are a lot of resource online to learn from, sites like:

If its just trading in general, I liked "Trading For A Living" by Alexander Elder.
