A contrarian look at how Warren Buffett thinks about investing and related issues
Warren Buffett is the most successful and revered investor of all time. His ability to consistently find undervalued companies has made him one of the world’s richest men.
Despite many previous books about him, it’s rare to find an objective assessment—one that praises him when appropriate, but also recognizes that even Buffett makes mistakes. For instance, is he right to call for higher taxes and an end to earnings guidance? Should Buffett fans copy his avoidance of technology stocks?
In this penetrating look at how Buffett thinks, Vahan Janjigian shows readers how to learn from the master’s best moves while avoiding strategies that don’t apply to small investors. And he explains Buffett’s favorite valuation methodology, the discounted cash flow model, and how it can significantly reduce the odds of overpaying for a stock.
-Lawrence Kudlow, host, CNBC's Kudlow and Company
"The author takes a contrarian - or at least mildly dissenting - view of Mr. Buffett's investing acumen. . . Mr. Janjigian also sheds light on Mr. Buffett's magic. Mr. Buffett has two large advantages that the average investor doesn't have, advantages that are often overlooked by those who try to mimic him."
-The Wall Street Journal
"This is exactly what has been missing from the litany of Buffett books. Vahan's razor sharp arguments make this book a unique- and important- work for every Buffett friend or foe."
-Barbara Marcin, portfolio manager, Gabelli Blue Chip Value Fund "Clear and compelling."
