What's Behind the Numbers? A Guide to Exposing Financial Chicanery and Avoiding Huge Losses in Your Portfolio (McGraw-Hill, 2012)
It's simple: We show you were you are going to die, so you don't go there. Many investors have owned a stock that skipped merrily on its way, higher and higher, the CEO a deity, everything skittle and beer--until one day they wake up to see that stock has detonated a bomb in their portfolio. They whistled
past the graveyard, and now they are in it. With this book, you won't be one of them. We help you find where the bodies are buried, so you don't join them. Our approach is risk management. Use the top predictors of poor stock performance ahead to avoid or sell the stock. Then, select the worst of the worst to short profitably via margin shorting or put options. And use value investing on the long side to choose stocks using a consistent repeatable process and make sure they all pass the earnings quality tests. Others shoot for the moon. We make sure the ground is solid under our feet. We manage risk to lose less and make more. Using real-time examples written for real clients, we show you how to do it too.
