A FEW weeks ago, Columbia Business School held its 15th Annual Graham & Dodd Breakfast. The guest speaker was Jean-Marie Eveillard, a successful (and now retired) mutual fund manager, who used to beat the market regularly by adhering to the ”value investing” principles first articulated by the great investor Benjamin Graham and his co-author, the Columbia professor David L. Dodd, in their 1934 classic, ”Security Analysis.”
“The more things change, the more they stay the same way.”
Still, the Columbia program — and value investing in general — feels a little like a cult. Despite the obvious success of people like Mr. Buffett and Mr. Gabelli — and the studies that seem to bear out that success as something more than luck — it is not yet fully accepted by either mainstream Wall Street or mainstream academia. In his remarks at the breakfast, Mr. Eveillard said he thought that maybe 5 percent of professional money managers are true value investors.
The new issue features Li Lu of Himalaya Capital, Preston Athey of T. Rowe Price, and Paul Isaac of Arbiter Partners. In addition, this issue is packed with stock pitches from Columbia Business School MBA students, including ideas from the Pershing Square Challenge and the annual Moon Lee Prize.
Congratulations to the 2012 – 2013 second-year graduating editors Jay Hedstrom (CBS ’13), Jake Lubel (CBS ’13), and Sachee Trivedi (CBS ’13) on an outstanding job. We also want to wish Richard Hunt (CBS ’14) and Stephen Lieu (CBS ’14) good luck as they assume the role of CSIMA Co-Presidents.
Keep up the great work CBS!

The 8th Annual Spring Value Investing Congress will be held May 6 & 7, 2013 at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas.
If you haven’t registered, Whitney and John have decided to reinstate the Early Bird Discount for 24 hours ONLY. This is an extraordinary offer – $1,400 LESS than what others will pay later to attend the Congress – so I hope you’ll take advantage of it before it disappears!
The Las Vegas Value Investing Congress will have more speakers than ever before, in a powerful new format. You’ll gain a huge amount of practical investing wisdom and leave with many actionable investment ideas. The lineup for this spring’s congress includes First Pacific Advisors’ Steven Romick, D3 Family Funds’ David Nierenberg, Centaur Capital’s Zeke Ashton, Rational’s Guy Gottfried, Robotti & Company’s Isaac Schwartz and Mittleman Brothers’ Chris Mittleman, just to name a few.

An investment operation is one in which, upon thorough analysis promises safety of principal and an aewquate return. Operations not meeting these requirements are speculative. — Benjamin Graham, The Intelligent Investor
