In the following weeks and months, I will be writing a series of chapter summaries with accompanied analysis on Graham and Dodd’s “Security Analysis”. The overall goals of the series are as follows:
- Improve both my security analysis and writing abilities.
- Provide a tangible product for an audience to interpret, critique, and benefit from.
- Stimulate original thinking in analysis areas.
- Signal to employers that my extra-curricular readings provide real knowledge, which translate into these blog posts.
In addition to these goals, I feel the need to stress why exactly I am choosing to allocate my time towards the practice of security analysis. It must be stressed that we live in fascinating financial times. This uniqueness of the modern financial picture, and the existential crisis it is currently battling internally, plays a large role in my desire to uncover the mechanisms that underlie it. Let that desire burn forth.
