Something tells me you are smarter than most self-proclaimed stock market experts and others looking to invest in the stock markets.
Something tells me that you are not interested in ‘get rich quick’ schemes or ‘hot stocks’ that promise fast money from the stock markets.
You are not looking for a magical idea that involves no work, no time, and no sense on your part. And you also realise that you don’t have to be Einstein to become a sensible, intelligent, and successful stock market investor.
So, you are smart. It’s only that you need to realise this truth and believe in yourself.
And with a view to create this belief in you, here’s…
20-Lesson Free Course on Value Investing
Value Investing for Smart People is a systematic, simple way to understand and implement the time-tested principles of value investing (the most sensible way of investing) to create wealth from stocks.
It is a free 20-lesson course on value investing strategies that have helped the world’s best investors amass huge wealth from the stock markets.

From my eight years of experience as a stock market analyst and investor, and from my readings of the world’s greatest investors, I have learnt that successful investing (that makes you rich while keeping you sane) depends on just a few factors.
In fact, there are five key factors – I call them ‘pillars of investing’ – that define successful investing.
Value Investing for Smart People, as a course, is a series that works through these five pillars, systematically introducing you to the most important concepts I think every stock market investor must know about.
These are the cornerstones of how to sensibly invest in stocks, using everything I’ve learned over the years. Ready?
Pillar 1: The Business
A stock is a share in a business. Repeat it! A stock is a share in a business.
A stock is not a piece of paper like speculators and traders treat it as. A stock represents part ownership in a business. Benjamin Graham, the father of value investing, wrote that ‘investment is most intelligent when it is most businesslike’.
This is a statement which Warren Buffett has regarded as the most important words about investing ever written. Value Investing for Smart People will show exactly what this means for you as an investor.
Pillar 2: Circle of competence
‘Do what you are best at’ is one important advice that every teacher gives her students. This is exactly what the teachers of value investing will tell you – never stray outside your circle of competence…outside what you know.
In simpler terms, you must invest in a company whose business you can understand with ease. Great investors have become great by following this very principle of ‘circle of competence’. And those who did not give a heed to this, their poor stock market returns speak for themselves.
Value Investing for Smart People will show you the relevance of this key pillar of investing, and how it matters so much to the way you invest in stocks.
Pillar 3: Intrinsic value
“Price is what you pay, value is what you receive,” goes the famous saying. We employ this in everything we buy. And we almost never pay a price that we believe is higher than the value a thing provides.
But this principle is rarely used when it comes to investing in the stock markets. Value is rarely considered a determinant of the price most people pay for stocks they buy.
Value Investing for Smart People will show exactly why it is a bad policy to not consider the value of a business before buying its stock.
Pillar 4: Mr. Market
Stock prices fluctuate, sometimes wildly. Some of these fluctuations aren’t bad! In fact, these provide the sensible, value investor a good hunting ground to identify quality stocks at throwaway prices.
As Buffett once said, “Look at market fluctuations as your friend rather than your enemy; profit from folly rather than participate in it.”
Value Investing for Smart People will show you precisely how you can deal with Mr. Market to your advantage.
Pillar 5: Margin of safety
These are considered the three most important words in investing.
Margin of safety is simply the difference between the intrinsic value of a stock (or the core value of its underlying business) and its market price. It suggests that one should buy a stock only when its intrinsic value is worth more than its price in the stock market.
The key advantage of using margin of safety while investing is that it minimizes the chances of permanent loss of capital. Value Investing for Smart People will explain you in a simple manner how you can include the margin of safety principle in your investing to preserve your capital.
Each of these five pillars of value investing enhances the others. Together, they’re much stronger than they would be if any of the pillars were missing.
Well, there are other key attributes of value investors, including the right behaviour, independence of thought and action, and asking the right questions. We will also cover all these aspects in the 20-lessons of Value Investing for Smart People.
