A timely follow-up to the bestselling classic
Dividends Don't Lie.
In 1988 Geraldine Weiss wrote the classic Dividends Don't Lie, which focused on the Dividend-Yield Theory as a method of producing consistent gains in the stock market. Today, the approach of using the dividend yield to identify values in blue chip stocks still outperforms most investment methods on a risk-adjusted basis. Written by Kelley Wright, Managing Editor of Investment Quality Trends, with a new Foreword by Geraldine Weiss, this book teaches a value-based strategy to investing, one that uses a stock's dividend yield as the primary measure of value. Rather than emphasize the price cycles of a stock, the company's products, market strategy or other factors, this guide stresses dividend-yield patterns.
The new paradigm for investing and building wealth in the twenty-first century. The Future for Investors reveals new strategies that take advantage of the dramatic changes and opportunities that will appear in world markets.
Jeremy Siegel, one of the world’s top investing experts, has taken a long, hard, and in-depth look at the market and the stocks that investors should acquire to build long-term wealth. His surprising finding is that the new technologies, expanding industries, and fast-growing countries that stockholders relentlessly seek in the market often lead to poor returns. In fact, growth itself can be an investment trap, luring investors into overpriced stocks and overly competitive industries
This book will give Canadians the ammunition they need to fight back against the scare tactics and rule of thumb selling methods used by many banks and financial planners to suck money out of your pockets every day!
"Very good. Practical- I loved the DVD resource and and found it was an easy read. I read it in 24 hours. I was in the process of making decisions in my financial life and needed some direction. I always find that working with 'Financial Advisors' from investment companies or banks are just not objective. Even if they are quite good at what they do, they are in the business of sales. Hearing some thoughts from a CA was refreshing. I consider myself to be informed, if not saavy financially- it is an individual's responsibility; but I hear time in and time out the same lines- I don't buy it. Sure don't put your eggs in one basket, but if I invest with only you, is that exactly what I am doing? And how about the 10% rule. Doesn't your other assests and individual situation come into play? Thanks David for debunking some of the myths. Very helpful."

Beating the Street
by Peter Lynch
From Publishers Weekly: Until retiring in 1990, Lynch ( One Up on Wall Street ) was manager of the spectacularly successful Fidelity Magellan Fund. Here he recalls with self-deprecating humor and disarming candor how he went about choosing winning stocks (and missing a few) for the $12 billion fund, which, during one five-year period in the 1980s, earned investors a 300% return. Lynch strongly favors stocks over other investment vehicles but insists that "investigative" research into a corporation's prospects, including credit checks and visits to the firm's installations, is essential. "Focus on companies, not the stocks," he stresses, adding that on this basis limited partnerships, banks and even S & Ls can be sound investments. Lynch's reputation and business writer Rothchild's deft touch should yield big sales for this inside and Fortune Book Club alternates; author tour.
