Ben Graham ~ Quote of the Week

Given that we touch on value investing topics from time to time, we thought it appropriate today to feature a quotation from the father of value investing, Benjamin Graham. The Market Folly quote of the week is simple and straight to the point:

"Investing is most intelligent when it is most businesslike."

~ Benjamin Graham

Graham's works on investing are of course must-reads and include The Intelligent Investor and Security Analysis. Stay tuned later this morning as we'll post up an in-depth look at treating stocks like business ownership, an inherent principle of value investing outlined by hedge fund AltaRock in their recent investor letter.
