The Value of Not Being Sure: Seth Klarman

February 25, 2009 | Comments (3)

Below is a neat Feb 23 article published in Value Investor Insight written by Seth Klarman.

The document is a bit hard to read but valuable lessons in value investing. Maybe it’s called “value” investing because we are always trying to learn valuable lessons that traders and speculators never consider.

Also consider reading this article by Vitaliy Katsenelson on The Pain of Mean Reversion.

    To read Klarman makes me think that the most basic principle of investing is–be able to daily master your psyche.

    The interesting thing is that you get a similar impression from a day-trading speculator like Jesse Livermore.

    I’m always amazed at the intellect of the man and how he is able to articulate his thoughts so clearly. I’ve never met or seen the guy but through his writings he sure seems calm and composed.

    Where can I get some of that?
