Anyone can retire as a millionaire! Consider this: If you invest $2,500 per year while earning 12 percent annual returns, then after 35 years you will have accumulated $1,079,159. But with annual returns of only 8 percent you will have just $430,792. Are these investment returns realistic over a long period of time? Based on the history of financial markets, the answer appears to be yes. For example, over the last 75 years the Standard and Poor’s index of large company common stocks has yielded almost a 13 percent average annual return.
In the wake of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression,
many investors are wondering how they can get attractive returns
while still being able to sleep at night. This book shows you how, using
investments that generate income.
You might ask what this means. Isn’t the goal of all investments to
generate income? Actually, there are two ways you can profit in the
financial markets. One way is to buy low and sell higher (hopefully),
thereby generating capital gains.
With the immense increase in wealth in the United States during the last decade and its more general
distribution, the problem of investment has assumed correspondingly greater importance. As long as the
average business man was an habitual borrower of money and possest no private fortune outside of his interest
in his business, he was not greatly concerned with investment problems. The surplus wealth of the country for
a long time was in the hands of financial institutions and a few wealthy capitalists.
I read the first edition of this book early in 1950, when I was nine-
teen. I thought then that it was by far the best book about investing
ever written. I still think it is.
To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a strato-
spheric IQ, unusual business insights, or inside information.
What’s needed is a sound intellectual framework for making deci-
sions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that frame-...
What is investment banking? Is it investing? Is it banking? Really, it is
neither. Investment banking, or I-banking, as it is often called, is the term

General scanners have a broad list of attributes in mind and spend a minimal
amount of time matching resumes to their criteria. Usually, they start by doing
a quick scan, looking for the obvious scoop on the person: Did he go to a top
school? Has she worked for good companies? What functional knowledge does
he have? It’s best if this information is prominent and comes immediately to
the eye. If they like what they see, then they’ll read through the entire resume.
This approach is fairly typical of the way an investment banking team...
The main ideas in this book trace their intellectual lineage to
Benjamin Graham, whom I never knew but must thank posthumously,
and Warren Buffett, whom I have the great fortune to
know and from whose writings, talks, and conversations I have
gained knowledge and insight. Neither of these men, of course, has
any responsibility for this book’s content and no doubt would disagree
with some of what it says, though it is written as a narrative
interpretation of principles they developed, to which it tries to be

What is investment banking? Is it investing? Is it banking? Really, it is neither. Investment banking, or I-banking, as it is often called, is the term used to describe the business of raising capital for companies and advising them on financing and merger alternatives. Capital essentially means money. Companies need cash in order to grow and expand their businesses; investment banks sell securities to public investors in order to raise this cash. These securities can come in the form of stocks or bonds, which we will discuss in depth later....
Private investors may need to isolate their cash flows to debt , usually only a single mortgage, from the cash flows to equity, usually their savings. Private investors may need this information to record any shortfall between rent received and loan interest, for personal income tax measurement.

Some people distinguish between savings and investments, where savings are
monies placed in relatively risk-free accounts with modest rewards, and where
investments involve more risk and the potential for greater rewards. In this
book we do not distinguish between these ideas. We treat them both under
the umbrella of investing.
Progress Microfinance has been implemented through two actions, both of which are managed by
EIF. They are: 1) a guarantee instrument to providers of micro-credit (funded entirely by the
European Commission); and 2) a structured investment vehicle set up under Luxembourg law, the
European Progress Microfinance Fund, funded by the European Commission and the EIB.
Another early-stage mandate in support of the European microfinance sector was the European
Parliament Preparatory Action (“EPPA”), a EUR 4m envelope under which the EIF has, since April
2010, made four risk capital investments and loans to non bank MFIs.
While these windows served as an opportunity for market testing, their pilot nature and limited
scale and scope represented a constraint on the market impact that these EU initiatives could

The process of bank deleveraging is expected to increase in 2012 with
a pipeline of opportunities, such as large loan portfolios, continuing
to materialize. With bank capital structures supported through
unconventional means, it may require a further uncontrolled external
shock to significantly accelerate the deleveraging process. Opportunities
for investors will, however, continue to emerge with capital strategy
expected to be a key driver of an increase in transaction activity.
Home Equity Financing leverages the equity you’ve established in your primary residence to
purchase an investment property. You may borrow up to 100% of your current home’s unused
equity. Like getting a new mortgage, home equity financing may be tax deductible.
Renovation Financing is specially designed to provide a single loan that covers both the purchase
price of a less-than-perfect property and the costs of renovating it. The loan amount is based on
the estimated increased value of your property after your planned improvements are made.
Debt settlement companies required consumers to pay an up-
front fee to join a debt assistance program that would eliminate the debt for a
fraction of the amount owed. Many offered to refund the fee if the customer
did not save a specified amount of money. Some groups claiming to be non-
profit organizations offered debt counseling services targeting consumers
with poor credit histories to help them obtain loans and credit cards or settle
