Fundamentals of Investing
This thirteenth edition of Fundamentals of Investing provides the information and guidance needed by individual investors to make informed decisions and to achieve their investment goals. This book meets the needs of professors and students in the first investments course offered at colleges and universities, junior and community colleges, professional certification programs, and continuing education courses.
Focusing on both individual securities and portfolios, Fundamentals of Investing explains how to develop, implement, and monitor investment goals after considering the risk and return of different types of investments. A conversational tone and liberal use of examples guide students through the material and demonstrate important points. The text provides a firm foundation for learning by first describing the overall investment environment, including the various investment markets, information, and transactions. Next, it presents conceptual tools needed by investors--the concepts of return and risk and the basic approaches to portfolio management. It then examines the most popular types of investments--common stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. The final section of the book focuses on derivative securities--options and futures--which require more expertise.
