During his thirty–one years as portfolio manager of Vanguard′s Windsor and Gemini Funds, John Neff beat the market twenty–two times while posting a fifty–seven–fold increase in an initial stake–making Windsor the largest mutual fund in the United States in the process.
Now, the "investor′s investor" is ready to share the strategies that earned him international recognition. He delineates, for the first time, the principles of his phenomenally successful low p/e approach to investing, and describes the strategies, techniques, and decisions that earned him a place alongside Warren Buffett and Peter Lynch in the pantheon of modern investment wizards. Packed with advice, guidance, and invaluable lessons in investing, John Neff on Investing reveals for the first time the long–heralded investment strategies of a Wall Street genius.
