What do you call a bull market that lasts at least 10 years and includes steep corrections and cycles of vicious rotation, but results in a quadrupling of the Dow, a stratospheric rise in new technology, and the creation of staggering amounts of wealth? Ralph Acampora, one of Wall Street´s most influential analysts, calls it a mega-market. Acampora shows how the current mega-market has clear parallels to three earlier markets, and explains to investors how the lessons of the past can be utilized to their advantage in the marketplace. History shows us the ways that investors will react under certain circumstances, and Acampora shows us that looking back is the best way to see what´s coming ahead. He teaches listeners to recognize patterns that can help explain market performance, and offers advice on spotting and protecting yourself from the inevitable corrections that occur with regularity in every mega-market. He makes exciting predictions of where the mega-market will go before it ends and how it will get there. He helps us to understand ways to invest our money and ride the current wave to wealth. 1.

Some people consider the bond market as the next best thing to the stock market. With lower risk and high returns, the bond market can be attractive. Yet, the bond market seems to receive less media hype, because it´s not as sexy as the stock market. Stocks have high risk and a bigger growth factor. Bonds can provide reliable, consistent returns, which are attractive to those of elder age, as they serve as a secondary source of income when reaching retirement. I am here to expose the bond market and make it sexier by explaining every single detail and correlating it with today´s stock market. I hold a Bachelor´s Degree of Business Administration and an Associate´s Degree of Management Technology. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Detris D. Brown.

A new approach to investing based on how Wall Street insiders approach the market The Indomitable Investor deconstructs the stock market as the public has come to know it and reconstitutes it from the inside out from the perspective of the fortunate few who dominate Wall Street. By revealing how top investors and traders think and act Steven Sears shows the stock market to be an undulating ocean of money, with seasoned investors reading the waves others cannot. Teaching listeners to think about the market in radically different ways, The Indomitable Investor shows how to improve returns - and, just as importantly, avoid losses - with disciplines deployed by people who almost always do exactly the opposite of what Wall Street says to do. Laying bare great fallacies, the book explains that non-professional investors wrongly think the stock market is a place to make money, which is what Wall Street wants them to try to do. The Indomitable Investor says otherwise and shows how Wall Street´s best investors have a completely different focus. Explains the critical ideas and insights of top traders and investors in language anyone can understand and implement Packed with material rarely shared off Wall Street that is used every day by professional investors Introduces the 17 most important words on Wall Street Teaches critical skills, including: How to increase returns by focusing on risk, not potential profits; how to use the stock market´s historical patterns to optimize investment decisions; understanding key relationships between stocks and the economy that predict what will happen to stocks and the broader market; how to increase mutual fund returns with an easy adjustment that redirects the bulk of profits to you - not mutual fund companies, and how to analyze information like seasoned investors to move beyond ´´statement of the obvious´´ news reports that turn ordinary investors into... 1.

A timely follow-up to the best-selling classic Dividends Don´t Lie. In 1988 Geraldine Weiss wrote the classic Dividends Don´t Lie, which focused on the Dividend-Yield Theory as a method of producing consistent gains in the stock market. Today, the approach of using the dividend yield to identify values in blue chip stocks still outperforms most investment methods on a risk-adjusted basis. Written by Kelley Wright, the managing editor of Investment Quality Trends, and with a new Foreword by Geraldine Weiss, this book teaches a value-based strategy for investing, one that uses a stock´s dividend yield as the primary measure of value. Rather than emphasize the price cycles of a stock, the company´s products, market strategy or other factors, this guide stresses dividend-yield patterns. Details a straightforward system of investing in stick-to-quality blue-chip stocks with reliable dividend histories Discusses how to buy and sell when dividend yields instruct you to do so Instructs investors looking for safety and transparency how to quickly discover how dividends offer the yields they desire. With Dividends Still Don´t Lie, you´ll gain the confidence to make sophisticated stock market decisions and obtain solid value for your investment dollars.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.
