Top Customer Reviews
I highly suggest this book along with the podcastfor any new or experience investor to be enhanced with the solid fundamentals of investing.
At best this book provides a simple and brief coverage about most of the major topics you should probably be aware of as an investor.
At worst this book totally fails to really teach you risk mitigation which the author claims that it does. He does mention how you might use options to limit your downside, but this really does not make for a sell side strategy, or much of a strategy for protecting your gains or limiting your losses.
This book is a really good book for a novice investor just starting to learn about the stock market. This book is a lousy book for an intermediate investor who wants to better his risk mitigation acumen.
It delivered on a number of fronts. While not being in-depth on any one subject, it offered a good foundation to base further learning.
Basic Quantitative stock screening, and where the investor/trader can get a robust screener at no charge.
Financial definitions and application of those definitions i.e. GARP, PEG ratios, GICS,
Basic Technical Analysis - When the investor looks at a stock/index chart what does he or she see. The basics of trending, breakouts, and basic patterns are addressed. This is not a technical analysis book, again it is a basics book. If the reader would like that, there are a number of great in-depth volumes on the subject.
Basic Fundamental stock review - Reviewing the Balance Sheet, Price-to-Book and Debt to Equity Ratios are addressed.
Risk Management - As a professional trader, I see this as the most over looked aspect of investing for most people looking to invest.
Options- a basic overview of what an option is, and how it works. It is not a lottery ticket, it is a risk management tool. The book offers a few basic strategies for their use.
Mutual Fund - Overview of performance, expense ratios, and how to sort between the thousands of mutual funds.
This is a book I would feel comfortable giving to my mother, children, or friend looking to learn more regarding a variety financial topics. It covers many topics, and the unassuming 232 pages makes it an easy, non-intimidating read.
Lastly, it is a nice introduction to any of the topics the reader would like to explore further.
