As Mark Tier demonstrates in this insightful book, the secrets that made Buffet, Icahn, and Soros the world's three richest investors are the same mental habits and strategies they all practice religiously. However, these are mental habits and strategies that fly in the face of Wall Street's conventional mindset. For example:
-Buffett, Icahn, and Soros do not diversify. When they buy, they buy as much as they can.
-They're not focused on the profits they expect to make. Going in, they're not investing for the money at all.
-They don't believe that big profits involve big risks. In fact, they're far more focused on not losing money than making it.
-Wall Street research reports? They never read them. They're not interested in what other people think. Indeed, Buffett says he only reads analyst reports when he needs a laugh.
In The Winning Investment Habits of Warren Buffett & George Soros you can discover how the mental habits that guided your last investment decision stack up against those of Buffett, Icahn, and Soros. Then learn exactly how you can apply the wealth-building secrets of the world's richest investors to transform your own investment results.
Who is the most successful investment manager in Britain? Arguments could rage forever, but no professional would dispute that Anthony Bolton of Fidelity is among the very best. £1,000 invested in his Special Situations fund at its launch in 1979 was worth more than £125,000 twenty seven years later. No other mainstream UK fund manager has put together such a consistently impressive performance over such a long period.
The 125-fold increase represents an average compound growth rate of more than 20% per annum, or 7% per annum greater than the FTSE All-Share Index over the same period. This track record of sustained outperformance stands comparison with that of the greatest American investment superstars such as Warren Buffett and Peter Lynch. For many years, until the fund was voluntarily split in 2006, Fidelity Special Situations was easily the largest and most popular fund in the UK.
What are the secrets of Anthony Bolton's success? This important book, now fully revised and updated, takes an in-depth look at the way that Bolton goes about his business and analyses in detail the fund's outstanding performance. Anthony Bolton gives his own personal account of the history of the fund, explains why he believes his contrarian stockpicking methods have worked so well for so long and summarises the lessons he has learnt from his long and succesful career. This book is required reading for anyone with a personal or professional interest in investment.
- Fully revised and updated second edition with 25 pages of new material and graphics.
- The only full-length book to analyse in detail the strategies and techniques used by the UK's number one professional investor.
- Detailed analysis of the performance of his funds and the lessons that investors can draw from its exceptional track record.
- Written jointly by Anthony Bolton and one of the UK's best known financial authors, a leading authority on the fund management business.
The purpose of this book is to provide individual investors who have as little as $1,000 to invest with the information necessary to earn a high return from investing in the stock market. Playing “the game” intelligently, as outlined in this book, will allow the small investor to earn a return better than most professional investors. Although the theories behind investment can be very complicated, the individual investor does not need to understand these theories in order to outperform the so-called experts. This book will show the reader the steps necessary to become a savvy investor and beat the pros. The good news is you can be a savvy investor and spend only a few minutes each year on your investment portfolio. It sounds almost too good to be true, but it is.
One of the most important things successful investors can do is concentrate on the variables they can control and not worry about the variables they cannot control. When constructing a stock portfolio, the two variables an individual investor can control are the costs associated with any investment and the risk related to an individual’s portfolio. Adjusting these two elements in an intelligent way can have a dramatic impact on the return earned from one’s investments, potentially adding hundreds of thousands of extra dollars to the investor’s investment account.
It seems like early investors in big companies like Facebook and Google had to have won the lottery of investing and just gotten really lucky, but there’s more to it than that. There’s a science to the “Next Big Thing” strategy, and Mark Tier understands it. In How to Spot the Next Starbucks, Whole Foods, Walmart, or McDonald's BEFORE Its Shares Explode, Tier shows readers that explosive brands like Starbucks, Whole Foods, McDonald's, and Walmart didn’t become successful on accident. Through in-depth and accessible case studies, Tier pulls back the curtain on the early Key Performance Indicators that each of these major companies showed even at their earliest stages. Once you learn how to recognize these makings of success, you too will be able to spot the next Starbucks.
