Product description

From the Inside Flap

In 2005, Joel Greenblatt published a book that is already considered one of the classics of finance literature. In The Little Book That Beats the Market a New York Times bestseller with 300,000 copies in print Greenblatt explained how investors can outperform the popular market averages by simply and systematically applying a formula that seeks out good businesses when they are available at bargain prices. Now, with a new Introduction and Afterword for 2010, The Little Book That Still Beats the Market updates and expands upon the research findings from the original book. Included are data and analysis covering the recent financial crisis and model performance through the end of 2009.

In a straightforward and accessible style, the book explores the basic principles of successful stock market investing and then reveals the author′s time–tested formula that makes buying above–average companies at below–average prices automatic. Though the formula has been extensively tested and is a breakthrough in the academic and professional world, Greenblatt explains it using sixth–grade math, plain language, and humor. He shows how to use his method to beat both the market and professional managers by a wide margin. You′ll also learn why success eludes almost all individual and professional investors, and why the formula will continue to work even after everyone "knows" it.

While the formula may be simple, understanding why the formula works is the true key to success for investors. The book will take readers on a step–by–step journey so that they can learn the principles of value investing in a way that will provide them with a long–term strategy that they can understand and stick with through both good and bad periods for the stock market.

As the Wall Street Journal stated about the original edition, "Mr. Greenblatt says his goal was to provide advice that, while sophisticated, could be understood and followed by his five children, ages six to fifteen. They are in luck. His Little Book is one of the best, clearest guides to value investing out there."

Good for beginners. Explains very well how market works and the terminologies in layman's terms.

The formula cannot be applied to indian markets though as there are only very few places where you can get the magic ranking and that too are conflicting.

This book doesn't need prior knowledge of different ways to find a company at a bargain price.Here Joel sticks to philosophy of graham on why and how margin of safety works best in long term. Though I read about return on capital and earning yield already but this book gave insight on how and why this works.

This book just shows that investing in stocks in a certain way can be done in a relatively simple way. People in India who blindly go for traditional investments like gold, Fixed deposits and real estate should read this book and realize that investing in a handful of stocks and periodically re-balancing can generate good returns compared to traditional investments. Greeblatt explains concepts in a lucid manner.
