About the book:
The Art of Value Investing: How the World’s Best Investors Beat the Market, John Heins and Whitney Tilson offer a comprehensive set of answers to the questions that everyone investing seriously in the stock market should have thought through clearly before committing his or her hard-earned capital to the endeavor. What market efficiencies will I try to exploit? What analytical edge can I hope to have? How specifically will I decide to buy or sell? For answers, they call on market-beating money managers – including such investing luminaries as Seth Klarman, David Einhorn, Bill Ackman, Howard Marks, Mason Hawkins and Julian Robertson – who have graced the pages over the past ten years of their highly regarded newsletter, Value Investor Insight. To illustrate one of the equity investor’s most important tasks – how to value a company – they will present a particularly relevant current case study … on Google.
