He is widely known as the "father of value investing ," and wrote two of the founding texts in neoclassical investing: Security Analysis (1934) with David Dodd , and The Intelligent Investor (1949).

Value Investing
VALUE INVESTING is an investment paradigm which generally involves buying securities that appear underpriced by some form of fundamental analysis , though it has taken many forms since its inception. It derives from the ideas on investment that Benjamin Graham and David Dodd began teaching at Columbia Business School in 1928 and subsequently developed in their 1934 text Security Analysis . As examples, such securities may be stock in public companies that trade at discounts to book value or tangible book value , have high dividend yields , have low price-to-earning multiples or have low price-to-book ratios . High-profile proponents of value investing, including Berkshire Hathaway chairman Warren Buffett , have argued that the essence of value investing is buying stocks at less than their intrinsic value . The discount of the market price to the intrinsic value is what Benjamin Graham called the "margin of safety ". The intrinsic value is the discounted value of all future distributions. However, the future distributions and the appropriate discount rate can only be assumptions. ( Graham never recommended using future numbers, only past ones). For the last 25 years, Warren Buffett has taken the value investing concept even further with a focus on "finding an outstanding company at a sensible price" rather than generic companies at a bargain price

In financial services , a BROKER-DEALER is a natural person , company or other organization that engages in the business of trading securities for its own account or on behalf of its customers.

Wall Street Crash Of 1929
A STREET is a public thoroughfare (usually paved) in a built environment. It is a public parcel of land adjoining buildings in an urban context, on which people may freely assemble, interact, and move about. A street can be as simple as a level patch of dirt , but is more often paved with a hard, durable surface such as concrete , cobblestone or brick . Portions may also be smoothed with asphalt , embedded with rails , or otherwise prepared to accommodate non-pedestrian traffic. Originally the word "street" simply meant a paved road (Latin: "via strata"). The word "street" is still sometimes used colloquially as a synonym for "road ", for example in connection with the ancient Watling Street , but city residents and urban planners draw a crucial modern distinction: a road's main function is transportation, while streets facilitate public interaction. Examples of streets include pedestrian streets , alleys , and city-centre streets too crowded for road vehicles to pass. Conversely, highways and motorways are types of roads, but few would refer to them as streets
