DDIntel - Investing the Right Way
By DataDrivenInvestor • Issue #52 • View online

The dollar has gone crazy in the last month, reaching never-before-seen highs and outperforming the Euro in terms of value. This is clear evidence that people all over the world are attempting to secure their finances in what appears to be the safest market of all - the US market.
This is happening despite the fact that markets are in complete disarray across the board, with most stocks in various sectors falling. Even the most resilient stocks, such as those in major indices, fell more than 20%, and Coca-Cola, the giant of resilience, fell more than 15%. Growth stocks, such as those in the technology sector, which seemed unbeatable not long ago, are also under fire. Tech behemoths like AMD, Nvidia, Google, Amazon, and Apple have also slowed their growth and are barely hanging on. Other tech stocks, such as Intel and Meta (previously Facebook), have plummeted to new lows.
All of this makes you wonder what you should invest in now when nothing appears safe. Dividend stocks also continue to fall as inflation fear looms, with everyone on the lookout for signs of depression or stagflation.
Being informed remains as important as ever, and deciding on the best strategy and perspectives to adopt in these volatile times is critical if you want to outperform the market. This week’s DDIntel highlights a few best practices to follow when investing your hard-earned money, as well as a few personal finance lessons and more.
Spotlight: Graham Style Investing
Beat the Market with Graham Style Investing | by Carl Westerby | Oct, 2022 | DataDrivenInvestor
The markets are in total disarray right now, with everything going on in the world. Investors can only wonder where they should put their money, and what investment strategy they can employ at a time of crisis.
One of the best ways you can beat the market in our current, unpredictable times, is the Graham style investing. This style of investing will help you choose the companies that will survive through even the worst global conditions. Learning to analyze the best companies using Benjamin Graham’s rules will make sure you will end up as a winner in the long term, even if everything goes down.
The Graham Style tries to focus on the assets of companies and analyze whether or not your investment will be safe. If the assets look solid and so does the balance sheet of a particular company, you may have found your holy grail, and you should dig deeper. However, if the management team of that company chooses to reinvest the money instead of rewarding their investors, that could be a great red flag, and you need to take that into account.
In this week’s spotlight article, you will find out how to invest the right way using Graham-style investing. You will learn what to look for in a company, before choosing to invest the smart way.
