UPDATED & EXTENDED 2ND EDITION - with a brand-new foreword by Merryn Somerset Webb
Let the market come to you.
Deep Value Investing by Jeroen Bos is an incredibly candid and revealing guide to the secrets of deep value investment. Written by an investor with a long and remarkable track record, it shares for the first time the ins and outs of finding high-potential undervalued stocks before anyone else.
Deep value investing means finding companies that are genuine bargains that can pay back phenomenally over the long term. They are firms so cheap that even if they were to close tomorrow their assets would pay you out at a profit. But if they can turn things around, the rewards will be many times greater ...
These were the favourite shares of Benjamin Graham, author of The Intelligent Investor. Inspired by Graham's classic and with a long history of discovering these great value stocks - sometimes known as 'bargain issues' or 'netnets' - author and investor Jeroen Bos reveals:
- how to use only publicly available information to discover these shares and filter the gold from the dross
- everything he did when analysing, purchasing, monitoring and selling more than ten recent successful deep value investments
- the complete philosophy behind deep value investing, and the ins and outs of this strategy in practice
- what can go wrong and how to minimise the chances of it happening to you.
Deep value investing has a better track record than almost any other approach to the market. Even better, it doesn't require minute and technical knowledge of a company, nor is it fixated on earnings or often-unreliable future projections.
It's all about the balance sheet and patience. This makes it the perfect investing approach for those who want to see phenomenal stock market returns without wasting time or commission costs.

The examples are neatly interwoven with the lessons he has learnt over the years and the qualities required of a deep value investor." -FT Adviser's Book of the Year 2013; "Very well written, easy to understand and jargon free... the book probably will help in making you a better investor, and on that basis it is definitely worth an addition to any serious investor's library." -Richard Gill, T1ps; "If you're "deep" into deep value strategies, or want to watch over the shoulder of a talented operator, Jeroen Bos's 'Deep Value Investing' is well worth picking up!" -Valueprax; "Deep Value investing is not for the faint hearted but Jeroen Bos is an expert practitioner. His book is clear, engaging and practical. It shines an expert light on this lucrative and little known investment niche. Frankly, as a fellow deep value investor looking for undiscovered bargains, I wish he hadn't done quite such a good job of it." -Andrew Williamson, Hawkwood Capital LLP; "If you want to know how to make money by buying cheap companies, this book is a must." -Philip Best, Argos Investment Managers. "...there is a lot of value in Deep Value Investing, especially today afer a period of underperformance." --Michael Wasserman, StrictlyValue
