Welcome to MF Investor!
This blog came about after years of procrastinating and getting my itch for value investing back. Despite not having this blog, I read news and articles on value investing on a daily basis and have come to a conclusion: Wall Street has not changed. Yes, the markets are more global and filled with high frequency trading, but the principles taught by Benjamin Graham in Security Analysis and The Intelligent Investor remain in tact.
And this leads me to Joel Greenblatt’s The Little Book that Beat the Market and its updated version The Little Book that STILL Beats the Market. It has been the basis for my investing strategy and will continue to be so as long as i’m able to screen for magic formula stocks. I plan to share how I go about using the magic formula to accommodate my busy work schedule and hopefully you are able to learn something along the way which is pretty much the goal of this blog. To teach others how to use the magic formula to develop a simple investing strategy that outperforms the market indexes over the long haul.
It’s been a while since I read any value investing book so why not start with The Little Book to get our beak wet on the book that will lay the foundation for the lifespan of this blog.
