Weekly Reflection: Week One Hundred Sixty-Eight

This is my one-hundred-sixty-eighth weekly reflection. Here are my takeaways from this week:

  • Valuation methods – I’ve learned about another evaluation method. It’s interesting to listen to investors look at the same company and, using different valuation methods, arrive at different values. Sometimes great investments are in plain sight, but no one sees them. Investors just need to adjust the lens they’re looking through to see their true value.
  • Wisdom – A friend shared a quote from Benjamin Graham. The publication of one of his books was delayed, but the book included better material because the delay allowed him to include “wisdom is acquired at the cost of much suffering.”
  • Odds – I’ve been learning about how successful investors think about odds and risk. Sometimes you can reduce the risk materially by waiting until the odds of the investment having success tilt more in your favor.

Week one hundred sixty-eight was an enlightening week. Looking forward to next week!
