Summary

From a successful investor and a contributor to Barron’s and Fortune comes a once-in-a-lifetime book that gives modern investors what they need most: a fresh, value-based guide to making money in a stock market now dominated by tech stocks.

Technological change is reshaping the economy in a way not witnessed since Henry Ford introduced the assembly line. A little more than 10 years ago, only two of the 10 most valuable publicly traded companies in the world were digital enterprises—today, they comprise eight of the top 10. Investors around the world are struggling to understand the Digital Age and how they can use the stock market to profit from it.

Author Adam Seessel understands. Several years ago, he watched his old-school portfolio built using traditional value investing principles decline while the market, driven by “expensive” tech stocks, advanced. Determined to reverse course, he set off in search of a new value-investment paradigm, one that remained true to the discipline that Ben Graham gave us a century ago while reflecting the new realities of the Digital Age.

In Where the Money Is, Seessel introduces a refreshed value-based framework that any investor, professional or amateur, can use to beat the modern market. Like all sectors, the tech sector follows certain rules. We can study these rules, understand them, and invest accordingly. The world is changing, and we can profit from it.

Approaching tech this way, the economy’s current changes and the rapid rise of tech stocks are not reasons to be frightened or disoriented—they’re reasons to be excited. Infused with the same kind of optimism and common sense that inspired Benjamin Graham’s The Intelligent Investor and Peter Lynch’s One Up on Wall Street, Where the Money Is ushers in a new era of modern value investing. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Ultimate guide to digital age economy

Ever since the days I read Benjamin Graham and Peter Lynch, I hoped someone will put together more up to date version that will reflect current world. This book made my wish come true. It’s the most up to date guide to current economy. Highly recommended.

Just what I needed

I found this book to be very interesting, as well as useful.
The concepts are very well explained, with plenty of real examples.
The information will only be useful for long-term investors though, not traders or speculators.

Could cause someone to lose a lot of money

I’ve never written a review before but this book seems to warrant it.

This book seems to cherry pick the facts that fit what he wants to portray and not mention the full story, even in the history of Benjamin graham. This books does have some interesting points and some points that don’t work so you really have to know the subject before reading otherwise a lot of bad habits will be picked up such as the irrational adjustments and optimism for some of the mentioned companies to make them fit a 20x multiple, this books seems to be for money rather than teaching new lessons a classic top of cycle release.

The best breakdown of Value 3.0 Investing

The author breaks down the philosophy and provides historical concepts that have helped me streamline by business evaluation process. I feel 1000 times more confident in my approach after reading this book.

I have read all of the value legends and books about those legends and his philosophy is makes total sense against that historical perspective. Definitely give this one a read.

Such a good book.

Listened to this one twice. Adam Stessel looks closely at how we should most accurately evaluate today’s companies for future growth and success- which is different from how we might have evaluated companies in previous decades. I have listened to many investing books, and this is among the best. Stessel has a clear writing style that is easy to absorb, and offers a wide variety of interesting examples to support his thesis that evaluating the best businesses today requires nuanced and deep understanding of our current, technologically influenced world . Excellent, 5 star book.
