Ideas get bigger when you share them...
January 30, 2014 (www.investorideas.com newswire) One of the seminal investing books of the modern era, STOCKS FOR THE LONG RUN has now been completely updated and revised to address the role of emerging markets and international investing. Most importantly, this edition presents author Jeremy Siegelís highly anticipated analysis of the subprime crash, financial crisis, and resulting worldwide recession.
Siegel, a professor of finance at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, uses detailed descriptions of market performance since 1802 to offer the most complete, compelling and irrefutable case for the long-term safety, stability, and necessity of stock market investment. He presents new evidence, research, and analysis supporting his key strategies for amassing a portfolio with enhanced returns and reduced risk.
The last edition of this classic investing book was published in 2007. Since then, the U.S. has experienced the deepest economic recession and market collapse since the Great Depression. Siegel gives his perspective on the causes and consequences of the crisis. He provides an expertís analysis of the most important factors behind the crisis; the state of current stability/instability of the financial system and where the stock market fits in; and the viability of value investing as a long-term strategy. Siegel holds that the rise of U.S. equity markets to new all-time highs in 2013 only reinforces the central tenet of his book: that stocks are indeed the best long-term investment for those who learn to weather their short term volatility.
In fact, Siegel states that the long-term real return on a diversified portfolio of common stocks has remained virtually identical to the 6.7% reported in the first edition of STOCKS FOR THE LONG RUN, which examined returns through 1992.
Other highlights in the new edition of the book include:
CHINA AND INDIA The economies of these nations are more than one-third larger than they were before the 2008 financial crisis. You'll get the information you need to earn long-term profits in this new environment.
GLOBAL MARKETS Learn all there is to know about the nature, size, and role of diversification in todayís global economy. Siegel extends his projections of the global economy until the end of this century.
MARKET VALUATION Can stocks still provide 6 to 7 percent per year after inflation? Siegel forecasts future stock returns and shows how to determine whether the market is overvalued or not.
Essential reading for every investor and advisor who wants to fully understand the forces that move today's markets, STOCKS FOR THE LONG RUN provides the most complete summary available of historical trends that will help you develop a sound and profitable long-term portfolio.
