If I were to start learning about investing, I would begin by reading everything about value investing, starting with an introductory book, such as “Invest Like a Guru”, moving to all books written on Warren Buffett’s investing style, and then reading all Buffett’s letters to the shareholders. Then, I would read “Competitive Strategy” by Michael Porter, and “The Intelligent Investor” and “Security Analysis” by Benjamin Graham. I would also watch all Berkshire annual meetings on YouTube.
Investing in individual companies requires solid knowledge, in my opinion. That solid knowledge needs time and effort to build. It doesn’t happen overnight.
That’s how I would do it, but it doesn’t mean that my method is correct. It’d just a personal opinion.
What about you?
