environment also has changed quite a bit from when the second edition was
published in 1998. From advances in technology, medicine, and communi-
cation to broader adoption of free enterprise practices and free trade agree-
ments, today’s world reflects unprecedented opportunity—and unique
risks. Yet through all the changes, I believe the essential principles of suc-
cessful investing endure.
In many ways, the global investment landscape is far different than
it was in 1989 when I wrote the first edition of this book. Today’s...

Value is a concept that many equipment vendors talk about, especially when the subject concerns T1
service delivery equipment. But unlike some companies that just talk about value in shallow market-
ing terms or catch phrases, ADC Telecommunications demonstrates true value – manifest and
validated in actual cost savings and performance efficiencies in carrier operations. To experience this
value, however, carriers must take a fundamentally different approach to the way they deliver T1

Another of ICI’s key missions is to promote public understand-
ing of funds and their investors. To that end, we stepped up
our outreach to the media and the public. Two key develop-
ments were the launch of ICI Viewpoints, a forum providing our
commentary on key issues as they emerge, and our increased
proﬁle in the broadcast media. Through these and other
means, we have achieved some success in informing coverage
and shaping opinions on key policy questions.

Over the past decade, global capital markets have experienced one of the most volatile periods in their entire history.
For example, since the millennium, the index of Britain’s highest valued companies, the FT-SE 100 (Footsie) has often
moved up and down by more than 100 points in a single day, driven by the extreme price fluctuation of risky internet or
technology shares, the changing value of blue-chip companies, a global banking and Euro financial crisis, rising oil and
commodity prices, all underpinned by increasing geo-political instability....

The mystery surrounding a company’s value often causes executives
to make bad investment and operational decisions. But these
poor choices can be avoided. Accurate valuations are possible and
M&A deals can succeed for both buyers and sellers. The keys to
success are in the pages that follow
The first computer programming book I read was entitled Programming Windows 3.0 by
Charles Petzold. This was around the time when Microsoft Windows 3.0 (circa 1992) once and
for all showed the industry that Microsoft was a company with a future. Writing code for Windows
back then was complicated by many things: lack of documentation, 16-bit architecture, and
the necessity of buying a compiler separate from the software development kit (SDK).
In the euphoria over IT and the Internet in the 1990s and early
2000s, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) took center
stage. Most every major company invested heavily in broad suites of
demand side applications that were supposed to transform interactions
with customers and drive sales and profitability. The logic behind
CRM seemed compelling, and companies invested to the tune of
tens of billions of dollars. Siebel Systems, among others, attained the
status of a stock market darling as sales of software licenses grew exponentially.
Iwant to express my gratitude to my father, who instilled in
me early in life a love and respect for the power and
irrefutability of mathematics. I would also like to thank all
the coeds with whom I came in contact in college, who convinced
me that there were better ways to spend four years
than doing engineering homework and that one could enjoy
both math and campus life simultaneously. I would like to
thank my father again. As manager of the pension fund for
one of the big three auto makers for many years, he convinced
me that intrinsic company value has little to do with
the nuances of...
Content marketing is all the rage. In a distracted world, where consumers are bombarded with advertising and overwhelmed by media and device choices, brands are searching for a new ways to connect—ideally over the long term. And many marketers are turning to content with varying degrees of success.
Technical staff in the textile industry are the backbone for the industry to run successfully. Management employ adequately qualified technical personnel and allot them to the supervisory jobs, whereas basic control of the raw materials, men, machinery procurement, devising policies etc. is controlled by the top management.
It is hard to imagine a time when law was more important to
managers. The rapid growth of unregulated subprime mortgages
and financial derivatives fueled a real estate bubble from
2001 through 2006, during which time executive compensation
in the financial services companies soared. When the bubble
burst in 2007, many executives of these companies walked
away unscathed, leaving employees, stockholders, and taxpayers
holding the bag.
