107岁的投资大师 The 107-Year-Old Stock Picker

 


When you get the chance to learn from someone with 84 years of investment experience, you should take it.
如果你有机会向一位拥有84年投资经验的人学习,那可一定不要错过。
The day before he celebrated his 107th birthday, I spoke with Irving Kahn, chairman of Kahn Brothers Group in New York and former research assistant to Benjamin Graham, the father of value investing.
在欧文•卡恩(Irving Kahn)庆祝自己107岁生日的前一天,我有幸与他交谈。卡恩是纽约卡恩兄弟集团(Kahn Brothers Group)的董事长,曾为价值投资之父本杰明•格雷厄姆(Benjamin Graham)担任过助教。
Mr. Kahn's eyesight and hearing have diminished, but his curiosity, common sense and grasp of market history are intact.
卡恩的听力和视觉已经衰退,但他的好奇心、判断力以及对市场变革史的领悟丝毫未减。
He personifies the virtues that Graham spelled out in his classic 1949 book, 'The Intelligent Investor,' from which this column takes its name. Along with Warren Buffett, Mr. Kahn is one of the last surviving investors who learned directly from Graham.
卡恩身上集中体现了格雷厄姆1949年经典著作《聪明的投资者》(The Intelligent Investor)中阐述的投资美德。卡恩与沃伦•巴菲特(Warren Buffett)一样,是直接受教于格雷厄姆的硕果仅存的几位投资大师之一。
Mr. Kahn's portfolio is half in cash, but only because he has finally gotten to the age where he is fully 'captive to my own conservative personality,' he said. Individual investors who avoid 'doing things you know too little about' still stand a decent chance of outperforming professional investors, especially by sticking to smaller stocks, he told me.
卡恩的投资组合一半是现金,而这仅仅是因为他终于到达了他自己所说的“可以完全听命于自己保守性格”的年龄。他告诉我,能够避免“进入自己不了解领域”的个人投资者依然有很大机会可以击败专业投资者,尤其是专注于投资小市值股票的话。
Before I could even ask him a question, Mr. Kahn began peppering me with his own: Who is the new editor of The Wall Street Journal? What is its daily circulation? Who are its toughest competitors?
我还没来得及开口提问,卡恩就先向我抛出了一个个问题:《华尔街日报》(The Wall Street Journal)的新主编是谁?每天的发行量有多大?谁是最大的竞争对手?
Mr. Kahn has a knack that more investors should develop: exploiting 'structured uncertainty,' or serendipity, which the sociologist Robert K. Merton identified as a key to intellectual discovery.
卡恩拥有一种投资者应该注重开发的特质,即探寻“结构不确定性”(structured uncertainty)或“机缘巧合”(serendipity)的能力。美国著名社会学家罗伯特•莫顿(Robert K. Merton)将这种特质视为智力领域探索与发现的关键要素。
Mr. Kahn began as a 'runner,' or trading assistant on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, for a small firm called Hammerschlag, Borg & Co. in 1928. After only one week on the trading floor, surrounded by people he considered 'crazy,' he begged to be reassigned to the research department.
1928年,卡恩在纽约证券交易所(New York Stock Exchange)的交易大厅开始了自己的职业生涯,为一家名叫Hammerschlag, Borg & Co.的小公司当跑单者(runner)。在交易大厅只干了一周,卡恩就觉得自己身边都是一群“疯子”,于是央求调往研究部门。
