What I really like about the book is that Darren took compounding to another level.

6. One Up on Wall Street

Peter Lynch.. He is one of the greatest money manager of multi-billion dollar Magellan Fund. Lynch is my hero in investing. What’s amazing about him is that he made me think about what’s happening with my surroundings and how to take advantage of it. Analyze the heck out of your surroundings. Ignore the ups and downs of the markets and stick to quality.

Check out what I wrote about him if you want before buying the book.

Never invest in any idea you can’t illustrate with a crayon

-Peter Lynch

 

 

 

 

7. The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life

Another legend. Among so many books that are written about this second richest guy on the planet, this is my one of favorites.

This digs deeply about who really that sexy old man is. I am sure you are curious about what the second richest man’s daily life is like.

Big personal jet, lavish party, 25 ounce $3,000 T bone stake, beautiful yacht…  right?

I watched a documentary about him not so long ago and the funniest part was when Buffett picks up breakfast sandwich from Mcdonald’s.

“When I’m not feeling quite so prosperous, I might go with the $2.61,” he explains. “That’s two sausage patties and then I put them together and then pour myself a Coke. $3.17 is a bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit. But the market’s down this morning, so I think I’ll pass up the $3.17 and go with the $2.95.”

I finished the book in two sittings. That’s how much fun I had.

Rule No.1: Never lose money. Rule No.2: Never forget rule No.1.

-Warren Buffett

 

 

 

8.The Little Book That Beats the Market

Joel Greenblatt is another super investor that I respect very highly.

He basically tells you to use his very simple formula “Magic formula” when investing in stock markets.

He formula is extremely simple. Find stocks that show lowest Price to Earning (P/E ratio) and highest Return on Equity (ROE).

By investing in 20-30 companies show high earnings yield with a high return on capital, he averaged a 17 year annual return of 30%. 30%/ year means, at the end of 3 years of investing, you would have doubled your investment and at the end of 10 years, you would have 14 times of your initial investment. That’s pure insanity. 

The more confidence I have in each one of my stock picks, the fewer companies I need to own in my portfolio to feel comfortable. 

-Joel Greenblatt

 

 

 

 

9. Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits

Fisher is considered to be Warren Buffet’s most significant influence. Imagine that… The most significant influence of the second richest sexy old man. The book really walk you through how to analyze businesses in very details.

Quality, Quality, Quality… Fisher really focuses on quality of the investments and sticking to it as long as the quality exists.

Many of investing guru compares to Ben Graham, the father of value investing but I think Philip Fisher is well beyond Ben Graham. Far Far Far higher.

If you take your investment and portfolio seriously and then this is a must-read.

Doing what everyone else is doing at the moment, and therefore what you have an almost irresistible urge to do, if often the wrong thing to do at all. 

-Philip Fisher

 

 

 

10. Essays of Warren Buffett- Lessons for Corporate America

This is the book to read.

Don’t Invest in Stocks, Invest in the Businesses Behind Them

4. Millionaire Teacher- Nine Rules of Wealth you should have learned in school

The nine fantastic rules to follow

Rule 1. Spend like you want to grow rich- Be Savy and frugal

Rule 2. Use the greatest investment ally you have- Power of compound interest

Rule 3- Small percentages pack big punches- Why invest in mutual funds and make banker rich? Low cost index ETFs are way to go.

Rule 4- Conquer the enemy in the mirror- It is not timing the market that matters but it is time in the market. Take advantage of fear and Greed.

Rule 5- Build mountains of money with a responsible portfolio- Bonds? What about couch potato portfolio

Rule 6- Sample a “Round- the-World” ticket to indexing- International index ETF investing

Rule 7- Peek inside a pilferer’s playbook- Avoid financial advisers!

Rule 8- Avoid seduction- Watch out for sirens of the markets. Boring is great when it comes to investing

Rule 9- The 10% stock-picking solution… If you really can’t help yourself- Buy business not Stocks… especially great quality business.
