Goode Value Investing & Trading Blog » Book Review: The Theory of ...
First published in 1938, this book is one of the classics of investing. I will not say that the book is a fun read, for it is not. It is dry and difficult. Half the pages are filled with equations. However, this book was a landmark and it remains relevant. This book is far too large and detailed for me to describe in detail, so I will present but a few of the highlights. John Burr Williams invented the dividend discount model of stock valuation. Previous economists and stock analysts had only guessed at what the proper P/E valuation was for a company or what the proper dividend yield was. Also, most previous analysts ignored the ... market research, surveys and trends
The Theory of Investment Value | High Return Investments Wichita Falls
This book was first printed in 1938, having been written as a Ph.D. thesis at Harvard in 1937. Our good friend, Peter Bernstein mentioned this book several times in his excellent Capital Ideas which was published in 1992. Why the book is interesting today is that it still is important and the most authoritative work on how to value financial assets. As Peter says: “Williams combined original theoretical concepts with enlightening and entertaining commentary based on his own experiences in the rough-and-tumble world of investment.” Williams’ discovery was to project an estimate that offers intrinsic ... market research, surveys and trends

I hope I didn't hear you say "diddums" - because it is possible, you know, that a bit of your wealth is being managed by a hedge fund, via your pension scheme. According to Hedge Fund Research's HFRX Global Hedge Fund Index, funds fell 0.94% on average in June and 2.79% in the three months ended June. This was, apparently, the worst second-quarter performance since 2000 when the industry lost 3.42%. Now I'll admit that there is one aspect of this poor performance that gives me the kind of unworthy pleasure I enjoy when seeing a football team that I despise being thrashed (I think we all know which team I ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Confessions of a Money Manager: Is over-active government stifling investment?
On Wednesday, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke testified before the Senate Banking Committee that the economic recovery has lost some steam, but said that the odds of another recession — the dreaded double-dip — are quite low. Ever cautious market participants, however, took Bernanke's remarks in the worst light. While he was speaking, the Dow Jones nosedived 160 points. At the end of the session, it came back somewhat to close at 10,120.53, down 109.43 points. Thursday, however, positive sales and earnings reports by Caterpillar, United Parcel Service and 3M, along with better than expected home sales, lifted the Dow ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Theory of Investment
"If only we knew more about the determinants of investment! But, unfortunately, our knowledge in this direction is still very meager. One might well ask, What is wrong with the theory of investment? Or, perhaps, What is wrong with the subject matter itself! For one thing, this variable, -- the pivot of modern macroeconomics -- has apparently lived a somewhat nomadic life among the various chapters of economic theory. Perhaps it has not stayed long enough in any one place. Perhaps it has been ill-treated." (Trygve Haavelmo , A Study in the Theory of Investment , 1960: p.3) ...

What are the differences between CAPITAL & INVESTMENT (in ...
The notion of capital varies according to the economic trend that wants to give. You must pay attention to what poses the classical economists and Marxists. I am going to pose this way: Capital, this is the note: "Classical economists interpreted capital as raw materials and the wages fund; Marxist economists saw capital as a social mode of production; the Austrian school maintained that time was crucial to the concept of capital."… Moreover, investment has many interpretations, but economically, is: "an alteration in capital stock during a certain period. Investment theory also states ...

A disproportionate number of subprime loans are solicited and given to minority borrowers mentioned in Senator Obama's letter to the Federal Trade Commissioner. Here's the website of that letter:… Using the theory of "investment and financial intermediation," what are the related economic effects to the borrowers who are given these loans. What's the economic effect of limited choices to the individuals (the opportunity cost)? How will these loan borrowers get out of this housing market crisis? Obviously, they were misled & were not offered low-cost loans in the ...
