At Farnam Investing, we believe that investment is key to building financial freedom. For many people, investing in the stock market can be a daunting task. Those dollars are more than just numbers in a bank account, they represent hard work, sacrifices and the hope of a better future and should not be risked lightly. Therefore, at Farnam Investing we strive to make the methods used by top investors available to everyone.
Our investing approach has been modeled after great investors like Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett, Charlie Mungers and Many others. This method involves identifying great companies with good business performance, purchasing stock of these companies at reasonable prices, and then holding them for long periods of time. Warren Buffett has said “accounting is the language of business” and is known for spending hours pouring over annual reports and financial statements in order to identify good companies. Even after identifying those good companies, he only invests if a company’s stock is at a reasonable, or possibly discounted price based on it’s intrinsic value.
While most of us would love to be able to invest like Warren Buffett, we don’t all have countless hours to spend evaluating thousands of companies to find those worth investing in. Farnam Investing has created a site that will allow beginner or advanced investor alike to analyze companies in a fraction of the time. Data from financial statements has been compiled, organized, and color coded to allow even the newest of investors to begin understanding the “language of business”. The platform provides a birds eye view of the stock market so potentially good companies with great business performance can be quickly identified. Once a company is identified and selected, in depth information is readily available in an easy-to-understand format. The intrinsic value calculator will help investors to find those stocks that can be purchased for a reasonable or even discounted price.
