Portfolio manager Lu's book answers the questions readers may have about making potential investments into a company. Containing 20 cases that span Warren Buffett's early investments into recent years, it should not be considered as another document of Buffett's works, but is to be used as an investment guide. Each of the cases contains all relevant financials, which readers can apply to understand what factors were behind Buffett's investment decisions as well as tools to use when deciding to invest. These include examining the financials and analyzing the operating segments of the company and the competitive environment in which any subbusinesses operate. It can be read alongside titles such as Benjamin Graham's The Intelligent Investor. Lu's book presents actual situations that investors would face when grappling with whether to make an investment and lessons learned from each choice.
VERDICT Recommended for any investor or student seeking financial expertise.
