Summary

Adopt the investment strategy that built Warren Buffett's fortune.

Invest Like a Guru provides an invaluable resource for high-quality-focused value investing, with expert insight and practical tools for implementation. Written by the man behind GuruFocus.com, this book expands on the site's value strategies and research tools to provide a primer for those exploring pathways to higher returns at lower risk. The book begins with an insightful explanation of high-quality-focused value investing concepts, then quickly moves into practical, detailed guidance on analysis, valuation, key factors, and risks to avoid. Case studies demonstrate real-world application of various analysis methods, and the discussion walks you through important calculations using real examples. Author Charlie Tian draws upon his own experiences and lessons learned to provide true insight on high-quality-focused value investing as a strategy, providing both reference and expert advice in this singularly useful guide.

Warren Buffett once said, "I would rather buy good companies at fair prices than buy fair companies at good prices." That's how he built his fortune, and his method is what we now call high-quality-focused value investing. This book shows you how to determine what constitutes "good companies" and "fair prices," with practical tools for real-world application.

  • Learn the principles and concepts of high-quality-focused value investing
  • Understand the analysis process and valuation of prospective investments
  • Avoid the value traps that can trigger permanent losses
  • Study clear examples of key ratios and calculations

We can't all become the next Warren Buffett, but we can boost returns while reducing risk using the right investment strategy. High-quality-focused value investing provides a path to profit, and Invest Like a Guru is the one-of-a-kind guidebook for getting on track.

Why isn't this book a bestseller?

Very comprehensive and practical. Not boastful. Feet on the ground type of advice.
You need to listen to this book at least once every six months.

A gurufocus ($400/year) commercial?

Good information in some parts - Mostly repackaging Lynch's work. really frustrating it references expensive ($400/year) gurufocus screeners constantly which prevents most listeners from gaining the full benefit. I also don't like it telling people to just look at screeners, which can be unreliable. It would be better if it actually taught people to do it themselves.

Title accurately describes book

My only nitpick about this book is that the hand out PDF file is really not optional. since audible does not provide that PDF you need to exert extra effort to find it before you start to listen

Without trying to make this review seem hyped...

This is an excellent book. I typically don’t leave reviews, but I felt compelled to on this one. This is more of a thank you to the author. They did a great job compiling value investing principles in an easily digestible format. I’ve been a fan of Gurufocus for a while and have used them for a lot of my research. I’m already profitable on my account which isn’t really hard in this economy. But I feel a sense of safety knowing the stocks I chose can likely weather most storms and will generate profits for years to come. Once my account is big enough, I will definitely consider signing up with gurufocus as just their free tools are indispensable. Thank you Charlie Tian

Sales Pitch

Came across as a promotion for his website. Many references to tables and charts not visible through an audible book. Many formulas verbally conveyed letter by letter/number by number. Website links spelled out that will become outdated. A lot of abbreviations introduced quickly and referenced frequently.
