Harriman Classics with a new foreword by James P. O'Shaughnessy If you want to get rich, no matter how inexperienced you are in investment, this book can help you. Its message is that you must not avoid risk, nor court it foolhardily, but learn how to manage it - and enjoy it too. The 12 major and 16 minor Zurich Axioms contained in this book are a set of principles providing a practical philosophy for the realistic management of risk, which can be followed successfully by anyone, not merely the 'experts'. Several of the Axioms fly right in the face of the traditional wisdom of the investment advice business - yet the enterprising Swiss speculators who devised them became rich, while many investors who follow the conventional path do not. Max Gunther, whose father was one of the original speculators who devised the Axioms, made his first capital gain on the stock market at the age of 13 and never looked back. Now the rest of us can follow in his footsteps. Startlingly straightforward, the Axioms are explained in a book that is not only extremely entertaining but will prove invaluable to any investor, whether in stocks, commodities, art, antiques or real estate, who is willing to take risk on its own terms and chance a little to gain a lot.

IN 1975, legendary value investor Benjamin Graham wrote that his net-net stock strategy worked so well that he had renounced all other value investing strategies. In his 2014 shareholder letter, Warren Buffett wrote that he earned the highest returns of his career employing this ‘cigar butt’ approach to investing. And despite the widespread assumption that net-net stocks are a relic of the past, Graham’s net-net stock strategy is just as viable today for small private investors as it was for Buffett’s ‘superinvestors’ during their early careers. Net-net investing remains the most powerful value investing approach a small investor can adopt. This book is your ultimate practical guide to implementing it – and reaping the rewards – in today’s markets. Evan Bleker has spent ten years studying Graham’s strategy to uncover its real-world performance, how to employ it, and why it works. He’s also dug deeply to identify additional criteria to boost returns and ensure a greater number of winners. In this book, Evan defines the strategy for investors, then walks readers through the strategy’s philosophy, as well as academic and industry studies assessing the framework, and its implementation by world-class value investors such as Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett, and Peter Cundill. He also compiles selection criteria into a practical checklist for investors, and documents how the strategy works in today’s markets with exclusive detailed case studies.

Some people love to make successful investing seem more complicated than it really is. In this anthology of essays and letters written between 2010–20, leading fund manager Terry Smith delights in debunking the many myths of investing – and making the case for simply buying the best companies in the world. These are businesses that generate serious amounts of cash and know what to do with it. The result is a powerful compounding of returns that is almost impossible to beat. Even better, they aren’t going anywhere. Most have survived the Great Depression and two world wars. With his trademark razor-sharp wit, Smith not only reveals what these high-quality companies really look like and where to find them (as well as how to discover impostors), but also: -why you should avoid companies that abuse the English language -how most share buybacks actually destroy value -what investors can learn from the Tour de France -why ETFs are much riskier than most realise -how ESG investors often end up with investments that are far from green or ethical -his ten golden rules for investment -and much, much more. Backed up by the analytical rigour that made his name with the cult classic, Accounting for Growth (1992), the result is a hugely enjoyable and eye-opening tour through some of the most important topics in the world of investing – as well as a treasure trove of practical insights on how to make your money work for you. No investor’s bookshelf is complete without it.

This is the classic work on Elliott Wave and market cycles returned to print. During the 1930s, R. N. Elliott undertook the painstaking procedure of attempting to classify share price movements for the preceding 80 years on Wall Street. It was during the course of this seminal work that Elliott discovered a definable basic rhythm in share price movements which he felt had forecasting value when correctly applied. In 1938 Elliott published his findings in a series of articles with the overall title "The Wave Principle". After publication, Elliott's work drifted into obscurity, until Robert Beckman's 'Supertiming' introduced it to a new audience. In this renowned work, Beckman sets out with three main objectives: to clarify obscurities and grey areas of The Wave Principle that were present in Elliott's original writing; to incorporate the work of other analysts in order to allow the Wave Principle to have a broader application; and to show the correct conceptual approach that should be used with the Wave Principle so that one can apply it with confidence and consistency.If you are willing to approach the subject of stock market behaviour with an open mind, who have faith in the fundamental laws of economics and the consistency of human nature, and who would like to avoid the pitfalls that have deluded the investment community for decades, this is the book for you.

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO HISTORY'S GREATEST EVER INVESTORSThere's never been a better time to be an ordinary investor. With more opportunities, lower costs and a more level playing field than ever before, the individual really can go head to head with the professionals. But there remains one big difference between Wall Street (or the Square Mile) and the individual investor: technique and experience. Superinvestors provides both in a new way. Based on MoneyWeek’s popular 'Great Investors in History' column, it takes an in-depth look at 20 of the best investors in the last 200 years and shows the reader how to copy them.These investors have been picked for a variety of criteria, including their investing excellence, the different ways in which they made money - and, above all, for what they can teach individual investors. Investors representing a wide range of investment styles are included, ranging from David Ricardo, who made a fortune by correctly predicting the outcome of the Battle of Waterloo, to the patient value-orientated approach of Warren Buffett. The book also looks at some of the innovators, including John Bogle's development of index funds as a low-cost way of getting exposure to the market and David Harding's data-driven approach that aims to avoid human emotion.The book then looks at each of the investors' careers in depth. This includes their background, the strategies that they used to beat their peers and an honest evaluation of their success, using a special star ranking system. Naturally, the main focus is on their best investments. However, sometimes failures can be extremely instructive - and the book looks at those investments that didn't quite go to plan. Finally, each chapter concludes by detailing the lessons that ordinary investors can learn from them.Superinvestors is a treasure trove of success stories, cautionary tales, legendary stock picks and world-beating strategies that will fascinate and inspire investors of every level.

After a turbulent three years, equity markets are returning to their historical norm of single digit percentage annual returns. Investors want to continue investing, but are concerned about the risk of doing so. The events of the past two years have heightened this risk aversion. But at the same time new techniques are now available to private investors that allow them to tailor their risk much more precisely, and at the same time to enhance their returns. Options are one way they can do this, but there are other instruments too, including individual stock futures, covered warrants, CFDs, exchange traded funds, and spread betting. This is the first book to set out all the choices open to investors. It explains how each of the derivative instruments works, the costs of dealing, the relationship to underlying share prices, and the risks involved. It shows how these instruments can be used alongside ordinary equity ownership, and provides examples of strategies designed to achieve specific ends. In short, Peter Temple's guide is what ordinary equity investors have been waiting for. It will give them confidence to step up from simple share ownership to the wider opportunities now available.
