Description - Security Analysis: The Classic 1951 Edition by Benjamin Graham
All editions of Graham and Dodd's Security Analysis have sold close to one million copies since it first appeared in 1934. This third edition was thoroughly updated and revised, to reflect the growing interest of individual investors in common stocks. The first edition of Security Analysis was written in the aftermath of the great crash of 1929, when the economic future was still under a cloud of uncertainty. The 1940 edition was written during a period of economic recovery preceding America's entry into World War II. By the time he wrote the third edition, Graham had had the chance to observe and study the financial markets under a variety of turbulent conditions. Most important, this edition was the first written during a time of economic stability and growth. A a result, the greatest thematic shift of the third edition is a stronger belief and focus in the legitimacy of common stocks as an apt investment for the individual investor.
As in the first two editions, this one provides the principles and techniques to measure asset values and cash flows so that investors can sharpen their judgements of company's earnings, refresh their insight into what individual companies are worth, and evaluate how much debt a leveraged company can service.

Benjamin Graham is widely acknowledged to be the father of modern security analysis. The founder of the value school of investing and founder and former president of the Graham-Newman corporation investment fund, he taught at Columbia University's Graduate School of Business from 1928 through 1957. Graham popularized the examination of price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios, debt-to-equity ratios, divident records, book values, and earnings growth, and he also wrote the popular investors' guide The Intelligent Investor. David Dodd was a colleague of Benjamin Graham's at Columbia University, where he was an assistant professor of finance.
