"Marty Whitman is one of the country's savviest investors but alsoa great intellect. This book, the outgrowth of his teaching at YaleSchool of Management, is essential reading for anyone in today'sturbulent markets." - Jeffrey E. Garten, Dean, Yale School ofManagement

An in-depth look at the modern realities of valuing companies, thiscomprehensive resource offers an antidote to conventional "ivorytower" financial theories. Value Investing shows investors how touse the same valuation techniques as are used in private businessand by control investors. It replaces the practice of excessiveprice watching with a "bottom-up" approach to corporate analysis.Written by seasoned investor Martin Whitman, the book delivers aproven approach to what is a fruitful, yet potentially dangerousventure.

With clear explanations and straightforward guidelines, Whitmangives investors the tools necessary to fully understand andcapitalize on the key to successful value investing: accuratelyvaluing a business or valuing the workout potential of troubledcompaneis. Beginning with a description of what exactly valueinvesting is, Whitman compares it with other investmentdisciplines, such as academic finance, Graham & Doddfundamentalism, and conventional research "as it seems to bepracticed by most 'sell' side analysts employed by broker/dealerresearch departments as well as most 'buy' side analysts who managemoney."

The key concepts of value investing are then discussed, includingcorporate valuation, the substantive characteristics of securities,capital structure, promoters' and professionals' compensations, andthe uses and limitations of financial accounting and narrativedisclosure. Value Investing provides an analytic framework forevaluating the impact of real world factors, such as public policyand regulation, mergers and acquisitions, government and corporatefinance, restructuring troubled companies, stockholder litigation,corporate power plays, and corporate share repurchase.

Thorough, accessible, and practical, Value Investing is essentialreading for anyone seeking a well-rounded overview of thisimportant topic.
