Ben Graham Quotations..

    Ben Graham # Investing Quotes
  • That it is perfectly proper to buy stocks for speculation. There is no crime in that. When you buy stocks for speculation it is perfectly proper to take speculative factors into account, which are different from investment factors.

  • The correct attitude of the security analyst toward the stock market might well be that of a man toward his wife. He shouldn't pay too much attention to what the lady says, but he can't afford to ignore it entirely. That is pretty much the position that most of us find ourselves vis-à-vis the stock market.
    Ben Graham # Attitude, Stock Market, Focus, Family Quotes

    Ben Graham # Stock Market, Wall Street, Research Quotes
  • The individual investor should act consistently as an investor and not as a speculator.
