As I told earlier sir, Benjamin graham was the most successful investor and stock market player. At, the initial time of his life he was a professor at the Colombia University. Graham gained most of his knowledge from his own experience and experiments. He was one of the most successful investors of his time. 

A Brief Summary of The Intelligent Investor

Well, graham has divided this book into two parts. One is for the beginners and the other one is for the experienced players. According to Graham, the Share market is not gambling but it is the place to think and work wisely. In his book, he has described two kinds of people. One is the Gabler and the other one is the trader. A trader is a person who likes to invest by thinking, looking at the background of the company, looking at its assets and how it is growing in the past years and on the other hand the gamble is the person who looks only the growth chart and without inspecting anything he starts investing his money on random companies. According, to him it is very much important to look and inspect any company before investing. One, more thing graham, aid that never invests in IPOs, He has given three meaning of IPOs. The first one is the imaginary profits only. The second one is its probably overpriced and the third one is insiders private opportunity. If you dont understand what he was trying to say then let me explain you in brief.

Imaginary Profits Only:

Most, people in the stock market or the share market thinks that investing in IPOS is the best option to gain a huge amount of money in a short period. According, to graham that is not true because most of the IPOs come to raise funds. There is no guarantee that the stock will go up or down. Most, of the time it is noted that the IPOs get down initially after getting investment. So, Benjamin always suggests people not to invest in IPOs. But, sometimes people get lucky too like Rakesh Jhunjunwala. When Rakesh was a new player in this industry he had invested in the IPO of Titan. At that time he had invested an amount of five thousand rupees only and bought some stock at rupees 2 per stock. Later, after one year the price of the stock gets a skyrocket to fifty rupees per stock. In this way, he started his begging journey in this industry.

Its Probably Overpriced:

If, you are an experienced play and you love to watch videos on youtube related to the stock market or share market. Then, you may have seen many videos suggesting you invest in the upcoming IPOs. Many, of the videos, try to convince you to invest in the IPOs by showing their bright side. But, always remember that it has a dark sight too. Benjamin Graham has explained very nicely in his book The Intelligent Investor to not to invest in the IPOs. The reason behind the heavy promotion of the IPOs on the videos is nothing but sponsorship and money. The upcoming IPO companies give money to the YouTubers or the video-makers to promote them. Due to, this promotion they add the invested money in their IPOs.
