This book will be different.
Thousands of books have already been written about the stock mar-
ket, many of them technical and tedious. Before I wrote this book, I was
amazed that so many boring books had been written about such a fas-
cinating subject. Just like you, I hate reading books that put me to sleep
by the second chapter. That is why I was so determined to write an
entertaining, easy-to-read, and educational book about the market.
When I set out to write this book, my topic was stock options.
Specifically, my intent was to explore the much debated issue of
expensing stock options. While that remains an essential theme of
this book, it is impossible to address stock options without looking
at the broader picture. Put another way, stock options are the trees;
executive compensation and effective corporate governance are the
What does it mean to own stock? Basically it means that a stock holder has a share in the company it holds stock in. In a sense the stockholders own a piece of the company that it has stock in. Stock shares are traded, bought and sold at a stock exchange such as the New York Stock Exchange which is the best known, but by no means the only stock exchange. Stocks are a type of security, Securities are instruments giving to their legal holders rights to money or other property. Securities include stocks, bonds, notes, mortgages,...
This book would never been possible without books and research that
went before. I want to speciﬁcally thank Yale Hirsch, of the Stock Traders
Almanac, and Steve Moore and Nick Colley of Moore Research.
The original Streetsmart Guide to Valuing a Stock was conceived and
outlined on a trip to Spain. The concepts underlying stock valuation
crystallized only as real livestock (6 fighting bulls and 8 steers) at-
tempted to run over us on the narrow, crowded streets of Pamplona.
Integral to the book’s progress were the discussions, over many fine
meals with our friends in Navarra, of its structure and international
appeal. Ana Vizcay and Eduardo Iriso, María Jesus Ruiz Ciordía and
Emilio Goicoechea, Luis Arguelles and Merche Amezgaray,...
“This is an excellent book for anyone interested in the important
discussion of stock option expensing and, more significantly, the
optimal use of stock options in compensation plans. It is written
from the point of view of an experienced and knowledgeable com-
pensation consultant who has advised board compensation com-
mittees and talked with many people outside the field considering
the economic and incentive effects of the overuse of stock options in
the 90s.”—John M. Biggs, former Chairman & CEO of TIAA-
This publication is for short-term traders, i.e. for traders who hold stocks for one to eight
days. Short-term trading assumes buying and selling stocks often. After two to four months a
trader will have good statistics and he or she can start an analysis of trading results. What are
the main questions, which should be answered from this analysis?
Everything a novice investor needs to know about getting started in stocks While dozens of books purport to be for the beginning investor, most "beginner" books assume a level of knowledge that true novices just don't have. Understanding Stocksis targeted to the beginning investor, providing a concise yet comprehensive overview of the stock market without subjecting readers to terms and ideas they can't understand and frankly, will probably never use.
or purposes of this book the term private equity refers to the
common stock of a corporation where that common stock is
held by a relatively few investors and is not traded on any of the
conventional stock markets. Normally the senior managers of
the firm hold a significant percentage of the firm's stock, and we
will assume that is the situation in all the cases discussed in this
Many of the same organizations who provided me with data for the first edition of Stocks for the Long Run willingly updated their data for this second edition. I include Lipper Analytical Services and the Vanguard Group for their mutual funds data, Morgan Stanley for their Capital Market indexes,
Smithers & Co. for their market value data and Bloomberg Financial for their graphic representations.
Streetsmart Guide to Valuing a Stock is a how-to book that provides
you with the tools to make money in the stock market. The book’s fo-
cus is on stock valuation—an area of great interest to many investors,
but understood by very few.
The current explosion of the stock market is unprecedented by any period in its history. Since
the 1980s, the number of American households that own common stock has risen from
below 20 percent to just under half. And, this does not include households that hold stock
within their retirement plans or other indirect means. A significant portion of this growth is a
direct result of the proliferation of information available to the public through such new forums
as the Internet. Any information without explanation, however, is useless....
Market is an American stock market classic. Most stock market classics date back 50 and 75 years but this one is almost contemporaty - only a quarter of a century old. Darvas was an original. He won at almost everything he đi whether it was creating crossword puzzles, playing championship Ping-Pong, or working as the world's highest paid ballroom dancer.
For many years, the stock and futures markets have been consid-
ered separate and distinct entities. Stocks (securities) have been the
backbone of capitalism and are still regarded as such today. Stocks
are considered the “stuff” of which all “good investments” are fash-
ioned. Not only has stock and bond trading been considered neces-
sary for the survival of industry and business in a capitalist society,
but it has also been regarded as the single most viable form of in-
vesting for the general public.
