The Coffeehouse Investor

I suppose that with Wall Street saying “I'm number one” in your ear every day of the year, it is only natural for you to think that the secret to being a successful investor is to beat the stock market average with your stock market ...

The Coffeehouse Investor

In 1998, after thirteen years of providing investment advice for Smith Barney, Bill Schultheis wrote a simple book for people who felt overwhelmed by the stock market. He had discovered that when you simplify your investment decisions, you end up getting better returns. As a bonus, you gain more time for family, friends, and other pursuits. The Coffeehouse Investor explains why we should stop thinking about top-rated stocks and mutual funds, shifts in interest rates, and predictions for the economy. Stop trying to beat the stock market average, which few “experts” ever do. Instead, just remember three simple principles: Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. There’s no such thing as a free lunch. And save for a rainy day. By focusing more on your passions and creativity and less on the daily ups and downs, you will actually build more wealth—and improve the quality of your life at the same time.

What You Need to Know While Investing for Financial Freedom

Why do normal individual investors repeatedly burn their fingers, and money, when it comes to investing? Why are so many individual investors confused or worried, and at a loss to determine what to do, when it comes to money and making it grow? Why is it that most investors feel ‘I don’t understand this’ and stay away or leave investing to so-called experts? If you have ever wondered if there is a simple way that will help you stop taking those dubious investing decisions, then you need this book. The objective of this book is to provide knowledge, insight and perspective to individual investors on investing for financial independence. This book contains Basic First Principles, Writings that emphasize the Importance of Mindset, and excerpts from Books on Investing you must read. It is not structured as a ‘Step-By-Step Guide to Financial Freedom’. Rather it covers (a) various techniques and considerations, (b) provides balanced perspectives on tools and options for investing, (c) demonstrates to the reader how mindset and temperament are critical in their investing journey, and (d) includes excerpts from important investing books and gurus that the reader can learn from. This book is an attempt to articulate some of the basic first principles that every individual investor must know in his journey to financial freedom but is never told formally or directly. These are, by no means, comprehensive, not all encompassing, and definitely do not hold any secrets to making money. But this collection of writings will serve as a good set of investing basics on techniqies, tools, temperament and wisdom from investment gurus to equip you on the journey to financial independence. Balanced and prudent, and filled with excerpts to learn from, ‘What You Need to Know While Investing for Financial Freedom’ is essential reading for individual investors in their quest for reaching financial independence, and in turn, a more fulfilling life.

The irreverent guide to investing, Boglehead style The Boglehead's Guide to Investing is a DIY handbook that espouses the sage investment wisdom of John C. Bogle. This witty and wonderful book offers contrarian advice that provides the first step on the road to investment success, illustrating how relying on typical "common sense" promoted by Wall Street is destined to leave you poorer.

Bogle have evolved from a loose association of investors to a major force with the largest and most active non-commercial financial forum on the Internet. The Boglehead's Guide to Investing brings that communication to you with comprehensive guidance to the investment prowess on display at Bogleheads.org.

Investors looking for a roadmap to successfully navigating these choppy waters long-term will find expert guidance, sound advice, and a little irreverent humor in The Boglehead's Guide to Investing.

The Anxious Investor

A revelatory new guide to becoming a smarter investor, drawing upon behavioral psychology, economic modeling, and market history to offer practical advice for reaching your financial goals "With the equity and fixed-income markets off to a rough start in 2022, investors might do well to review the lessons shared in Mr. Nations’s book." —Wall Street Journal The human brain is ill-suited to making wise investment decisions. We are overconfident in our own knowledge and hunches, terrible at assessing risk, and prone to chasing financial thrills rather than measured long-term goals. Making matters worse, periods of severe market turbulence—whether the dotcom bubble of the late 90’s, the Great Recession a decade later, or the brief, vertiginous COVID crash of 2020—bring out our most irrational selves, at the exact moment when the consequences for investment mistakes are most severe. Scott Nations has spent his career studying market volatility. His firm, Nations Indexes, is the world’s leading independent developer of volatility and option-enhanced indexes. In The Anxious Investor, he teaches readers how to understand markets, master their own fear, and make the most of their money. Drawing upon cutting-edge research in behavioral psychology, Nations shows that the secrets to excellent investing lie in mastering the quirks of human psychology. How are some investors able to make prudent decisions under pressure, while others rely on gut instinct to disastrous effect? How can we prepare for a market crash before it happens? And what can help us stay the course when the waters get choppy? Using the stories of three infamous market bubbles as his backdrop, Nations offers readers history’s hard-earned lessons about greed, volatility, and value. Whether you’re saving for retirement, a home, or a child’s college education, The Anxious Investor offers a blueprint for achieving your goals. While we can never know exactly which financial surprises may loom ahead, here is an indispensable resource for investors to make sense of them.
