December 2016 Member Update

Whoever said the things slow down during the holiday season probably have never dealt with NYSSA before. How are you all doing?

There are so many things that I can bring up in this newsletter, but I have a very important announcement to make:

We have an annual election coming up for the four director-at-large seats that will be vacated due to the existing directors serving to their term. Those of you who would like to participate in the election but are not yet a NYSSA member*, please keep in mind that December 15, 2016, is this year’s record date.

Multiemployer Pension Conference

Multiemployer Pension plans, which are operated by groups of companies together with officials of a union that represents their workers, oversee roughly $500 billion in assets under management. Such plans are common in sectors like the building trades, where the workers move from job to job, taking their benefits with them.

Benjamin Graham's Lost Chapter

Benjamin Graham's Lost Chapter

Benjamin Graham’s Lost Chapter. In the 1962 edition of Security Analysis Graham wrote a chapter titled, "Newer Methods for Valuing Growth Stocks". As the title implies, this chapter was a detailed instruction on how to value growth stocks. Interestingly, in subsequent editions of Security Analysis this chapter was removed and has never been reprinted. Of course, there are two ironies: 1) Geico was a growth stock and Graham's biggest winner, and 2) Graham is famous for his net-net style of investing, which by today’s standards, is completely opposite of a “growth stock”. Was Graham’s investment philosophy changing? How would Graham view growth investing today?
