Free sample

If you're looking for advice on how to make a fast buck and get an adrenalin high from investing, this book is not for you. If you're looking to build wealth over time, Kim Shannon covers a common sense approach that Sionna Investment Managers uses to manage money on behalf of its clients.

Shannon and her investment team follow a path well-established by the most successful value investors: Benjamin Graham, David L. Dodd, Sir John Templeton, Peter Lynch and the "world's greatest investor," Warren Buffett. However, Sionna has a unique take on value — one that addresses the idiosyncrasies of concentrated markets — like those within Canada.

Despite proven success, value investing struggles for respect, particularly during bubbles and declines when investors take cues from headlines instead of reason and experience. Shannon discusses the psychological impulses underlying mispriced stocks that become unmoored from their intrinsic value. Citing examples, she endorses understanding investment psychology and using relative value to buy illogically discounted shares.

Suited for investors at all levels, The Value Proposition reveals Sionna's quantitative and qualitative processes and a "Sherlock Holmes" orientation to reading financial statements and assessing a company's management. After 30 successful years in the hard knocks investment world, Shannon views herself fortunate to have found her calling managing money for institutions and individuals.

She describes the unlikely journey that led to an industry that has only recently attracted women. Her account of influential mentors, the merits of staying independent and her creation of a strong Sionna culture make for an engaging and informative read.

"Value originates from many sources and exists in all markets at all times. For example, catching value from structural shifts in a stock, sector or the market offers once-in-a-lifetime returns."

In this book, Ashu reveals secrets of value investing that go beyond the traditional measures of value, methods used by successful value investors, market-tested techniques that can give you the professional edge and make you very rich: 

● How to identify market periods when the rewards will be many times the risk

● Why "cheap" and "value" are not the same thing 

● How identifying emerging value investment themes ahead of the crowd leads to super profits 

● Why the maximum money is made in a short span of time — and from just a few stocks

● When do IPOs constitute a good value buy

● How to find extraordinary value in investment manias, market chaos, rational bubbles, commodity cycles and market falls caused by credit squeeze

● Why you must lock in the sector before picking a stock

● How to find value in bull and bear markets

● How to boost your returns from the traditional metrics of value investing

● Value investing lessons from the masters.

PLUS, much, much more...

The best-selling investing "bible" offers new information, new insights, and new perspectives

The Little Book of Common Sense Investing is the classic guide to getting smart about the market. Legendary mutual fund pioneer John C. Bogle reveals his key to getting more out of investing: low-cost index funds. Bogle describes the simplest and most effective investment strategy for building wealth over the long term: buy and hold, at very low cost, a mutual fund that tracks a broad stock market Index such as the S&P 500.

While the stock market has tumbled and then soared since the first edition of Little Book of Common Sense was published in April 2007, Bogle’s investment principles have endured and served investors well. This tenth anniversary edition includes updated data and new information but maintains the same long-term perspective as in its predecessor.

Bogle has also added two new chapters designed to provide further guidance to investors: one on asset allocation, the other on retirement investing.

A portfolio focused on index funds is the only investment that effectively guarantees your fair share of stock market returns. This strategy is favored by Warren Buffett, who said this about Bogle: “If a statue is ever erected to honor the person who has done the most for American investors, the hands-down choice should be Jack Bogle. For decades, Jack has urged investors to invest in ultra-low-cost index funds. . . . Today, however, he has the satisfaction of knowing that he helped millions of investors realize far better returns on their savings than they otherwise would have earned. He is a hero to them and to me.”

Bogle shows you how to make index investing work for you and help you achieve your financial goals, and finds support from some of the world's best financial minds: not only Warren Buffett, but Benjamin Graham, Paul Samuelson, Burton Malkiel, Yale’s David Swensen, Cliff Asness of AQR, and many others.

This new edition of The Little Book of Common Sense Investing offers you the same solid strategy as its predecessor for building your financial future.

Build a broadly diversified, low-cost portfolio without the risks of individual stocks, manager selection, or sector rotation. Forget the fads and marketing hype, and focus on what works in the real world. Understand that stock returns are generated by three sources (dividend yield, earnings growth, and change in market valuation) in order to establish rational expectations for stock returns over the coming decade. Recognize that in the long run, business reality trumps market expectations. Learn how to harness the magic of compounding returns while avoiding the tyranny of compounding costs.

While index investing allows you to sit back and let the market do the work for you, too many investors trade frantically, turning a winner’s game into a loser’s game. The Little Book of Common Sense Investing is a solid guidebook to your financial future.
