Strategy Beyond the Hockey Stick  is about unlocking big moves—because that is what it takes to beat the odds in business. Anchored in empirical evidence from thousands of companies, it reveals what really matters—and what does not—for exceptional performance. Despite their best intentions, business leaders often get bogged down by human biases and social dynamics that get in the way of clear strategy and strong execution. Just about anyone proposing a strategy comes in with a confident "hockey stick" projection. But how do you distinguish the true breakthrough plans from the fakes—and then carry through the tough choices needed to make good on those promises?  Strategy Beyond the Hockey Stick  provides you with practical advice on how to change these dynamics in your strategy room and make the right strategic moves. Chris Bradley, Sven Smit, and Martin Hirt are all leaders in McKinsey's Strategy Practice. They have worked together over the last decade on a mission to advance the state of the art in strategic management, while serving corporate leaders around the world to help them beat the odds.

This book has the most thorough text on Point and Figure charting. Comprehensive coverage of all aspects of P&F is provided. (302 pages) Indecision and turbulence prevail in the financial market at this time. Meanwhile, attempts to identify major price swings in the stock market dominate investment strategies. Perhaps more than ever before, people seem unable or unwilling to venture into investment decisions. Growing numbers of individuals depend on others for acceptable investment returns. To accommodate increasing expectations for better investment performance, timing strategies in the equity markets must play a larger role. This material represents a compendium of technical investment analysis for entrepreneurial investors. The book includes a unique blend of pragmatic investment management concepts and real-world mathematical emphases are excluded for the sake of pragmatism. Broad-based treatment of investment management principles in diverse settings functions as a surrogate to mathematical and theoretical overkill. Although sequential reading represents the more conventional approach, by the continuity and flow of the book, readers will find that individual sections can still offer their autonomy and ability to stand-alone. The book differs from competitors in several ways. The author draws upon many years of practical experience in asset evaluation, selection and allocation techniques. The emphasis centers on taking complex subject matters and reducing it into a workable presentation for readers. Concepts that have heretofore been regarded as esoteric by some will be made quite lucid by supporting illustrations. Chart configurations, relative strength, and other frequently misunderstood techniques help identify supply and demand imbalances and pinpoint issues primed for price moves in either direction. This book offers a total perspective on personal portfolio management. The author will continually espouse the view that undervalued and overvalued assets offer uncommon profit opportunities. Its coverage is in sharp contrast to the more arcane academic view relating to market efficiency. Academicians subscribe to the idea that all markets are efficient and that returns may be increased only by the assumption of additional risk. Their view states that all known information about securities is embodied in the current market price. Securities adjust instantaneously to new information disseminated about different firms. In other words, academicians propose that undervalued and overvalued assets do not exist. Therefore, it is virtually impossible to earn superior returns or outperform the market.

An in-depth guide to making gold a serious part of your portfolio Gold, the long forgotten store of value that was once the center of the global financial system, suddenly matters a great deal again. It has become a leading asset by virtue of its strong performance, and its booming demand has made it the only financial asset that remains in an uninterrupted bull market.

This reliable resource examines the investment vehicles (bullion, stocks, derivatives, and even rare coins) and strategies (aggressive, conservative, passive, and variations) aimed at beating the price of gold as it rises, and ways to protect a portfolio should the metal decline. * Identifies five key drivers that should continue to push gold higher in the years ahead * Explores the ins and outs of investing in gold and making this precious metal a part of your portfolio * Examines the pros and cons of multiple ways to buy gold via coins, ETFs, mining and royalty stocks, and other investment vehicles * Author Shayne McGuire is a highly-regarded expert on gold Written in a straightforward and accessible style, Hard Money offers key strategies to enhancing returns with new methods for investing in gold.
