CFA Society Chicago is sponsoring a live webcast of Jean-Marie Eveillard of First Eagle Investment Management. This free, online event is being made available to all local CFA society members in the US.
Topic: "Value Investing: It Makes Sense and it Works - Over Time"
In this presentation, value investor Jean Marie Eveillard will be covering the reasons why value investing makes sense. Eveillard will then show that the approaches in Ben Graham's "The Intelligent Investor" and Warren Buffett's letters to shareholders work over time. This means a look at works by Buffett in 1984 and Lou Lowenstein in 2004 supporting this position. Then, Eveillard will ask (and answer) the question, if value investing make sense and if it works over time, how come there are so few (genuine) value investors? Finally Eveillard will look into what happened to many value investors in 2008 and the lessons from that..
