Firm foundations and castles in the air -- The madness of crowds -- Speculative bubbles from the sixties into the nineties -- The explosive bubbles of the early 2000s -- Technical and fundamental analysis -- Technical analysis and the Random Walk Theory -- How good is fundamental analysis? The Efficient-Market Hypothesis -- A new walking shoe: Modern portfolio theory -- Reaping reward by increasing risk -- Behavioral finance -- Is "Smart beta" really smart? -- A fitness manual for random walkers and other investors -- Handicapping the financial race: A primer in understanding and projecting returns from stocks and bonds -- A life-cycle guide to investing -- Three giant steps down Wall Street.
In this classic guide, first published in 1973, you'll learn the basic terminology of "The Street" and how to navigate it with the help of a user-friendly, long-range investment strategy. Drawing on his own varied experience as an economist, financial adviser, and successful investor, Malkiel shows why an individual who buys over time and holds a low-cost, internationally diversified index of securities is still likely to exceed the performance of portfolios carefully picked by professionals using sophisticated analytical techniques. In this newest edition, Malkiel has added material on exchange-traded funds, investment opportunities in emerging markets, and the pitfalls and prospects of the latest investing trend, "smart beta." The book's classic life-cycle guide to investing, tailoring strategies to investors of any age, will help you plan confidently for the future. You'll learn how to analyze the potential returns not only for basic stocks and bonds but for the full range of investment opportunities -- from money-market accounts and real estate investment trusts to insurance, home ownership, and tangible assets like gold and collectibles.
