About J. Royden Ward

J. Royden Ward is the Editor of the Cabot Benjamin Graham Value Letter (available at and

In 1946, Dr. Wilson Payne, Dean of the Investment Department at Babson College, and Benjamin Graham, professor of Advanced Security Analysis at Columbia University and investment advisor with the Graham-Newman Corporation, collaborated to devise formulas that would estimate a fair value range for stocks based on Mr. Grahamís guidelines. The fair value range indicated the high and low price range for the next 12 to 24 months for each stock. The formulas were based on the 10 year histories of price, sales, cash flow, earnings, dividends, and book value per share for each company.

In 1969, Dr. Wilson Payne and J. Royden Ward, Director of Research at Econometrics Research and Management in Boston, teamed up to develop computerized models that would utilize the formulas that Dr. Payne and Benjamin Graham devised to estimate a fair value range for stocks 23 years earlier. The models were successfully back-tested to check their validity in the difficult stock markets of the 1960ís. In addition to the fair value models, Dr. Payne and J. Royden Ward added Benjamin Grahamís guidelines for standards of quality, standards of quantity, and standards of earnings growth to their analysis model. The resulting product was purchased by J. Royden Ward and made available to institutional investors during the next 30 years.

Manage Your Portfolio with the Position Manager

There are quite a variety of investment newsletter services available to investors today, which achieve a decent track record. In reality, however, many newsletters have not translated well for most investors that subscribe to them. The reason? Money management. Without the proper position sizing using the right money management tool, you are only dealing with half the formula for success.

Let's face it: if there was one consistently successful investment newsletter, then the word would spread rapidly, and that one investment newsletter would have more customers than the population of China. The reality is that there has never been such a success. Why? Because in the final analysis, 8 out of 10 investors fail due to one simple reason: position sizing.

The majority of investors who subscribe to investment newsletters think that the process is as simple as "Just give me your recommendations and let me become as successful as you are". Unfortunately, as money managers know, entry points account for very little in the overall success of a portfolio. Find out why! is not affiliated with, or endorsed by, J. Royden Ward, or
