Editorial Reviews

Review

"...has a lively writing style and dissects the rather cluttered world of financial information in a manner helpful for individual investors." (Wall Street Journal, August 7, 2006)

From the Back Cover

IPraise for NAVIGATE THE NOISE

"Instructs the investor on how to deal with a more problematic investment climate. Richard's guidance is thoughtful, detailed, and full of common sense."
—Douglas A. Kass, General Partner, Seabreeze Partners Short LP

"An excellent and concise work by an acknowledged master in the field of strategic equity analysis from a quantitative perspective. [It] stands like a beacon amidst the Wall Street landscape of hype, confusion, and, well, noise."
—Charles Albers, retired senior vice president and portfolio manager OppenheimerFunds

"Bernstein's basic premise about the lack of value of today's so-called 'information' is so true. It's just like food—a lot more of it isn't healthy; it's quality that counts."
—Jeffrey J. Diermeier, President and CEO, CFA Institute

"Rich Bernstein does a marvelous job separating investment facts from fantasy in a clear and concise way. [It] should be included on the reading list of any serious investor."
—Michael E. Kenneally, Chairman and Global CEO Credit Suisse Asset Management

Format: Hardcover
The more information a market provides the more efficiently it will operate, right? Well, in theory that’s so. In fact, market transparency has been a top goal of financial regulators in the U.S. for decades. But is it possible to have too much information? Richard Bernstein makes a compelling argument that not all information is good information. Noise — the deluge of 24-hour news coverage, constant cable TV market-chatter, continuous Internet feeds and barrages of electronic updates — is a danger to most investors, who lack the resources to separate the accurate from the spurious. This book is a Godsend for investors who think — usually mistakenly — they can make sense of it all. Bernstein tells you how to cut through the noise by focusing on long-term investment plans, diversifying and clearly assessing risk. We [...] recommend this informative book for its crisp, personal style, and for its practical approach to bringing some peace and quiet to your portfolio.

Bernstein makes the whole investment process very clear and understandable. I was amazed at how many stupid investment errors I was making by simply watching CNBC and reading every word in every business magazine.
It's an easy and quick read. Definitely worth it!!

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Al L on March 5, 2002
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the best book I've read in several years. It is thought provoking and backed up by data to show which stocks do well and poorly over time. Alot of the information is counter-intuitive--i.e. shows how your gut instinct is often incorrect. I particularly like the book's discussion of risk, and how the conventional view of risk differs considerably for the average investors view of risk. I plan to reread this book soon.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Richard O'Hara, CFA on March 12, 2002
Format: Hardcover
This readable book explains very important concepts (risk/reward, asset allocation etc.) very well. Serious long-term investors would be well advised to navigate the noise (I would suggest shutting off CNBC as a start), read Richard's book, and then create a diversified portfolio that is expected to help them fund their long-term liabilities (education, retirement etc.) while matching their true risk tolerance.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Dan Mihelic on August 17, 2001
Format: Hardcover
A must-read for anyone that really wants to understand the stock market and why it does what it does. The book has helped me understand what investing over the long term is all about and how short term flows of information and emotion impact the short term performance of any investing strategy.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By David Mead on August 7, 2001
Format: Hardcover
This is not a book that will unlock an investment secret. On the contrary, it will reacquaint today's investor with the age-old fundamentals of successful investing -- planning, asset allocation, style diversification, monitoring and good ol' time in the market. Imagine that -- the secret to successful investing is actually no secret at all! It's time to get back to basics, turn off the noise, and invest with success. Thank you Rich Bernstein and staff for reintroducing us to an old friend.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By WPH on December 26, 2001
Format: Hardcover
A topic that I would suggest is in the back of investors' minds yet one they aren't willing to address for a variety of reasons. Rich Bernstein brings to light the media's influence on investing decisons and that the "noise" generated by the media distracts us from long term investment objectives. This book is to the point and in layman's terms...a must read for all investors AND financial advisors.

Format: Paperback
USEFUL FOR AN INEXPERIENCED INVESTOR. PRIMARY POINT IS TO FOCUS ON THE LONG TERM AND DO NOT RESPOND TO DAY TO DAY EVENTS COVERED IN THE MEDIA. SOME USEFUL INFORMATION ON WHICH STOCKS TO BUY AND WHEN. GOOD BUYS ARE FREQUENTLY NOT THE "BEST" STOCKS BUT RATHER THE ONES GETTTING THE LEAST ATTENTION FROM ANALYSTS AND THE MEDIA.
