Description

Biotech, high tech, bubbles, and busts—no two stock markets are ever the same. Getting ahead of the game demands something hard to find on Wall Street these days: a flexible long-term strategy good for all seasons. These great investing stories provide a well-honed guide to the practicalities of dealing with the turbulent markets of the new century. Distilling his long experience in covering Wall Street, Richard Phalon offers ten mini-essays profiling the business ideals of some of Wall Street's most successful investors. Each episode demonstrates how these canny money managers, often bouncing back from painful losses, worked out ways of buffeting the uncertainties of the marketplace. Let the time-tested measures of seers like Benjamin Graham and T. Rowe Price show you how to spot value at a discount, and witness how trailblazing women like Hetty Green and Muriel F. Siebert proved that men have no monopoly on Wall Street savvy. Capitalizing on the techniques of these shrewd money spinners will help you profit, no matter which way the wind blows.
