Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits

Philip A. Fisher


Widely respected and admired, Philip Fisher is among the most influential investors of all time. His investment philosophies, introduced almost forty years ago, are not only studied and applied by today’s financiers and investors, but are also regarded by many as gospel. This book is invaluable reading and has been since it was first published in 1958. The updated paperback retains the investment wisdom of the original edition and includes the perspectives of the author’s son Ken Fisher, an investment guru in his own right in an expanded preface and introduction “I sought out Phil Fisher after reading his Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits…A thorough understanding of the business, obtained by using Phil’s techniques…enables one to make intelligent investment commitments.

My opinion

Slightly more andvanced and detailed book about investment. Not as fast read as something like Warren Buffet Way, but more detailed approach to qualitative aspect of stock picking from man who has been big inspiration to both Buffet and Munger.

For who?

People who want to dive deeper in stock investing.
