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) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

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

By Rolf Dobelli HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on July 10, 2001
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!!

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.

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.

Richard Bernstein became visible to the investing public primarily through his appearances on Wall Street Week with Louis Rukeyser. I always enjoyed his understated yet well thought out commentary and reasoning. Bernstein's advice was refreshingly different from the other panelists. His viewpoint was anchored to income protection rather than growth speculation. With the latest research showing that low-beta, low volatility, low risk stocks that pay dividends are the true champs of the investing universe, Mr. Bernstein has received additional support for his approach of avoiding the hype, not chasing hot stocks, and finding real value. "Navigating the Noise" is a touchstone for all investors.

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.

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.

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.
