OT: Learning Stock Valuation

Are there any books this esteemed group would recommend to learn about stock evaluation?




There are many many books that touch on valuation though instead I will recommend something a bit more unique that I found a quite fun way to solidify my thoughts on valuation and hear an interesting take on many other aspects to investing.

There is a podcast I found a little over a year ago called “InvestED” that I would recommend. It is hosted by two people. One guy is a hedge fund manager who emulates Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger in his investing style. The other is his daughter who at the beginning of the podcast knows pretty much nothing about investing. The whole podcast is geared toward this guy teaching his daughter to invest live each week using Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger style investing which they call “Rule One Investing” referring to Warren Buffett’s two rules to investing 1. “Never lose money” 2. “Never forget rule number 1.” This podcast is a fun listen for anyone and has some great insights regarding many aspects of investing including various valuation methods.

If you choose to give this a try it is important to start with episode number 1 and go through in order to get the most from the podcast.

Though here is also a few books that are good for learing about investing.
“The Intelligent Investor”

“One Up on Wallstreet”

“Million Dollar Portfolio” (this may pair better with how stocks are picked within The Motley Fool universe)

I hope this was helpful and best of luck in your learning.
