THIS BOOK IS ABOUT SHARPENING YOUR PERCEPTION, HOW NOT TO OVERSTAY MARKETS, AND BUILD STOCK POSITIONS THAT CAN WORK OUT BRILLIANTLY.
Have you owned Microsoft, Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Alibaba these past five years? Wall Street jitterbugs, day after day. Soo…. how can you come out on top? Stocks churn like commodities, fluctuating as much as 5% intraday. Nobody’s there to take good care of armchair investors. Pie chart money managers and banks like JPMorgan Chase, adhere to the traditional 60/40 ratio for clients’ portfolios, but they scatter shot capital into oil, commodities, emerging market debt, foreign currencies - whatever. It makes them look profoundly busy. Past years, these pundits pretty much ignored the NASDAQ 100 Index which has outperformed traditional indices like the Standard & Poor’s 500. Within is the schema for your money management. Know when to buy stocks and when to check out. Don’t assume the Street’s pundits get it right even half the time. Historically, the Federal Reserve Board is not your friend, zigging rather than zagging. The analysts’ consensus on specific stocks, usually is sketchy and off base.
THIS BOOK TAKES AN IN-DEPTH LOOK AT THE COMPLEX INTERPLAY BETWEEN PERCEPTION AND MISPERCEPTION IN FINANCIAL MARKETS AND THE CONSEQUENCES OF MISPLACED INTERPRETATIONS OF HARD DATA.
Sosnoff shows how a successful investor copes with market cycles, evaluates financial risk and stock selection. He also talks candidly about how he manages his own portfolio in terms of its conceptual framework and specific investments, and he offers advice for family wealth management, too. A colorful storyteller, Sosnoff's anecdotes highlight his measured money management execution. Learn about fine wine, contemporary art, literature, horses, dogs, even the demise of Venice, all in the name of understanding Sosnoff's art of successful investing. In addition, Sosnoff shares war stories, praise and critiques of a veritable who's who of the business world including: Warren Buffett, Donald Trump, Sam Walton, Michael Milken, George Soros, Steve Wynn, Larry Tisch, Rupert Murdoch, Carl Icahn, Bill Gates, Paul Volcker and Alan Greenspan. "Master Class for Investors" goes beyond boardrooms and trading floors to take the reader inside the psyche of one of the shrewdest investors in our time.
