I read the first half of this book, put it down for a few months, and then picked it up again. I probably shouldn't have done that. First half: great. Second half: not great. First half basically reads like a textbook. A good discussion of various methodologies and value investing strategies. Second half is very little value-add. They felt stale.

It is a good review book, which put together all the different concepts together margin of safety, intrinsic value, etc.
It also has a satisfactory review of the key value investors, and you can judge for yourself that they might have quite different approaches within the value investing theme. I did not like that different profiles for different investors not similarly structured. Some investment cases presentation is helpful, but sometimes It is the best book on Value investing I have seen.
Some investment cases presentation is helpful, but sometimes dominated too much. Quotes: Most investors want to buy securities whose true worth is not reflected in the current market price of the shares. There is general agreement that the value of a company is the sum of the cash flows it will produce for investors over the life of the company, discounted back to the present. In many cases, however, this approach depends on estimating cash flows far into the future, well beyond the horizon of even the most prophetic analyst.
Value investors since Graham have always preferred a bird in the hand-cash in the bank or some close equivalent-to the rosiest projection of future riches. Therefore, instead of relying on techniques that must make assumptions about events and conditions far into the future, value investors prefer to estimate the intrinsic value of a company by looking first at the assets and then at the current earnings power of a company. A further advantage of the value investor's approach-first the assets, then the current earnings power, and finally and rarely the value of the potential growth-is that it gives the most authority to the elements of valuation that are most credible.
This pruning has the effect of driving up the price of currently successful stocks and depressing even further stocks that are already downtrodden. The end of the year has historically been a good month to pick up the value stocks that window-dressing managers have tossed out in order to avoid listing them in the year-end report. A more thorough examination of the correlation of past performance with future return would reveal just the opposite: over a two-or three-year period, yesterday's laggards become tomorrow's leaders.
The traditional Graham and Dodd earnings assumptions are 1 that current earnings, properly adjusted, correspond to sustainable levels of distributable cash flow; and 2 that this earnings level remains constant for the indefinite future. Because the cash flow is assumed to be constant, the growth rate G is zero. The adjustments to earnings, which we discuss in greater detail in Chapter 5, include 1. Rectifying accounting misrepresentations, such as frequent "onetime" charges that are supposedly unconnected to normal operations; the adjustment consists of finding the average ratio that these charges bear to reported earnings before adjustments, annually, and reducing the current year's reported earnings before adjustment proportionally.
Resolving discrepancies between depreciation and amortization, as reported by the accountants, and the actual amount of reinvestment the company needs to make in order to restore a firm's assets at the end of the year to their level at the start of the year; the adjustment adds or subtracts this difference. Taking into account the current position in the business cycle and other transient effects; the adjustment reduces earnings reported at the peak of the cycle and raises them if the firm is currently in a cyclical trough.
Considering other modifications we discuss in Chapter 5. The goal is to arrive at an accurate estimate of the current distributable cash flow of the company by starting with earnings data and refining them. To repeat, we assume that this level of cash flow can be sustained and that it is not growing. Although the resulting earnings power value is somewhat less reliable than the pure asset-based valuation, it is considerably more certain than a full-blown present value calculation that assumes a rate of growth and a cost of capital many years in the future.
And while the equation for EPV looks like other multiple-based valuations we just criticized, it has the advantage of being based entirely on currently available information and is uncontaminated by more uncertain conjectures about the future. We have ignored here the value of the future growth of earnings. But we are justified in paying no attention to it because in evaluating companies operating on a level playing field, with no competitive advantages or barriers to entry, growth has no value.
Element 3: The Value of Growth When does growth contribute to intrinsic value? We have isolated the growth issue for two reasons. First, this third and last element of value is the most difficult to estimate, especially if we are trying to project it for a long period into the future. There are ways to compare situations that initially look dissimilar. There is almost always a "per" number: price per subscriber, per regional population, per caseload, per stadium seat.
Recent sales in the private market provide a benchmark for valuing the license or franchise of the company under analysis. The competitive advantages that the incumbents enjoy need to be identifiable and structural. Good management is certainly an advantage, but there is nothing built in to the competitive situation to guarantee that one company's superiority on the talent count will endure over time. Structural competitive advantages come in only a few forms: exclusive governmental licenses, consumer demand preferences, a cost supply position based on long-lived patents or other durable superiorities, and the combination of economies of scale thanks to a leading share in the relevant market with consumer preference.

Spotting franchises is a difficult skill-one that takes time and work to master. They will buy growth only at a discount from its estimated value large enough to make up for the greater uncertainty in valuation. The ideal price is zero: Pay in full for the current assets or earnings power and get the growth for free.
Equation for the present value of a growing firm, which is where F is the growth factor. Appendix: Valuation Algebra: Return on Capital, Cost of Capital, and Growth Whenever cash flows increase at a constant rate, it is possible to calculate the present value PV of this stream with the following formula: where R is the cost of capital and G is the rate of growth.
Buying a company for substantially less than tangible book value or the well-tested value of its earnings is already a low-risk strategy. Using a valuation based on assets as a check on a valuation based on earnings power, all the while refusing to pay much if anything for the prospects of growth, further limits risk. If an ordinary portfolio one not selected on value grounds needs 20 or 30 names to be adequately diversified, then perhaps the margin of safety portfolio needs only 10 or Value investors also control risk by continually challenging their own judgments.
