Biotech, high tech, bubbles, and busts-no two stock markets are ever the same. Getting ahead of the game demands something hard to find on Wall Street these days: a flexible long-term strategy good for all seasons. These great investing stories provide a well-honed guide to the practicalities of dealing with the turbulent markets of the new century. Distilling his long experience in covering Wall Street, Richard Phalon offers ten mini-essays profiling the business ideals of some of Wall Street's most successful investors. Each episode demonstrates how these canny money managers, often bouncing back from painful losses, worked out ways of buffeting the uncertainties of the marketplace. Let the time-tested measures of seers like Benjamin Graham and T. Rowe Price show you how to spot value at a discount, and witness how trailblazing women like Hetty Green and Muriel F. Siebert proved that men have no monopoly on Wall Street savvy. Capitalizing on the techniques of these shrewd money spinners will help you profit, no matter which way the wind blows.

John Neff on investing by John Neff( )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Neff has proven time and again over the past three decades that bucking the system can pay off big. During his illustrious career as a money manager, Neff flew in the face of conventional wisdom by consistently passing over the big growth stocks of the moment in favor of inexpensive, underperforming ones-- and he usually won! During his thirty-one years as a portfolio manager for Vanguard's Windsor and Gemini Funds, he beat the market twenty-two times, through every imaginable stock market climate, while posting a fifty-seven-fold increase in an initial stake. When Windsor closed its doors to new investors in 1985, it was the largest mutual fund in the United States"--Container

Whittaker Chambers by Sam Tanenhaus( )

"This first ever biography of the enigmatic Whittaker Chambers draws on materials from forty archives, including still-classified KGB dossiers, to trace the remarkable journey that led Chambers to center stage in America's greatest political trial. This complex portrait is rich in startling new information about Chambers's years as a Communist agent and then defector, hunted by the KGB; his conversion to Quakerism; his secret sexual turmoil; and his turbulent decade at Time magazine, where he rose from obscurity to transform the magazine into an oracle of apocalyptic anti-Communism. But all this was a prelude to Chambers's memorable testimony against Alger Hiss in the spy case that changed America. Tanenhaus re-creates the Hiss case in all its improbable twists and turns, disentangling the motives that propelled a vivid cast of characters in unpredictable directions"--Publisher's website

Inside the Oval Office : the White House tapes from FDR to Clinton by William Doyle( )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1940 inventor J. Ripley Kiel was taken by Secret Service men to the Oval Office, where he planted a microphone in FDR's desk lamp and connected it to an experimental sound recording machine. Since that day, almost every president has found some use for recording, sometimes covertly, sometimes not. While presidents are often analyzed as leaders and politicians-chief executive of what Harry Truman called "the largest going concern in the world," CEOs in charge of 3,500,000 employees, a $2 trillion budget, and an arsenal of over 25,000 nuclear warheads-rarely are they seen as the Constitution defines them, as executives. The Oval Office door closes; the real work of the White House begins-- The tapes and transcripts left behind from this sixty-year recording experiment are a cockpit voice recorder of the presidency, time capsules from crucial moments in American history. During four years of research in the National Archives and Presidential Libraries, William Doyle unearthed scores of White House tapes and transcripts, many never before published. He interviewed over one hundred Oval Office insiders, Cabinet members, and White House aides, from FDR's personal secretary to Henry Kissinger. Inside the Oval Office is the result, a flesh-and-blood drama of the presidency in action"--Publisher's web site
