In his latest column for Seeking Alpha, Validea CEO John Reese details his market-trouncing Benjamin Graham-inspired Guru Strategy, which Seeking Alpha users can now get access to for free.
“Today, many investors look to Warren Buffett for advice about the stock market and the economy,” Reese writes. “But before he became one of the world’s richest men and greatest investors, there was someone whose investment advice Buffett himself cherished: Benjamin Graham. And Buffett was far from alone. Known as ‘The Father of Value Investing’, Graham inspired a number of famous ‘sons’ — Mario Gabelli, John Neff, John Templeton, and, most famously, Buffett, are all Graham disciples who went on to their own stock market greatness.”
In the article, Reese goes step-by-step through his Graham-based approach, which has generated returns of about 185% since its July 2003 inception (more than 15% per year). The S&P 500 has gained about 20% (2.5% per year) over the same period. Reese also takes a look at how Graham’s personal experiences colored his investment approach. And he offers several picks that currently get high scores from his Graham-inspired model. To read the full article, click here.
