In 2012, 123 articles were published, not including this one. That’s an average of one every three days and enough to make a book!
So to wrap up the year and before I get into finalizing year end performances for my portfolio and screeners, here are the best value investing articles I wrote in 2012.

Looking at 2012
That’s it for 2012. Looking at the posts that made it on this final list, I am very glad to see it aligning with the objective of this website which is to educate and empower investors to take charge of their own investments. With a little effort, you can be your own financial analyst and guru.
I feel that Old School Value has taken another step forward in 2012 and I hope to keep up the quality of the site next year and beyond. Over the past year, I’ve encountered new failures, successes and lessons which should make OSV a better place to be in 2013.
Thanks for reading and see you soon!
Happy New Year!
