Second Edition

Streetsmart Guide to Valuing a Stock, Second Edition is a how-tobook that provides investors with the tools to make money in the stock market. The book's focus is on stock valuation—an area of great interest to many investors, but understood by very few. The second edition is a complete revision of the original (1999).

In the four years since the publication of the first edition Streetsmart, the stock market collapsed, managers of many corporations such as Enron, WorldCom and Adelphia have been indicted for fraud, and biased and discredited Wall Street stock analysts have attained a business stature below that of used car salesmen. The authors believe it is time to place stock valuation within the context of some general rules and concepts that are at the core of finance theory. In this book the authors explain the ten principles of finance and describe how investors can use them to make better investment decisions and to estimate a stock's value.

New topics that the authors specifically address are:

  • The 10 Principles of Finance and how to use them for investing (Chapter 2);
  • The Internet bubble and what caused it (Pages 69-72);
  • How to value financial stocks with valuations for Citigroup, Merrill Lynch, and Berkshire Hathaway (Chapter 8);
  • What was the root cause of the collapse of Long Term Capital (Chapter 1); and
  • Managed earnings, accounting scandals, and how analyst expectations are factored into stock prices (Chapter 3).

The retail price of the book is $29.95 and it may be bought through book stores or over the Internet through amazon
