When I started my education in finance a quarter of a century ago, one of the first articles I ever read was an interview in Forbes Magazine with Philip Fisher, a highly respected American investor and the founder of investment management company Fisher & Co in 1931. Mr Fisher ran the business right up to his death in 2004, during which time he made his clients significant profits. Clearly, he was someone well worth listening to during his lifetime. The greatest investor of all time, Warren Buffett, certainly did and even described himself as "85 per cent Ben Graham and 15 per cent Fisher". For anyone serious about investing I would highly recommend reading Mr Fisher's book Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits, first published in 1958 and still in print today, as it offers an insight from one of the best investment minds of the past century.
