Contents: The Little Book of Common Sense Investing; Contents; Introduction to the 10th Anniversary Edition; Chapter One A Parable The Gotrocks Family; Get rid of all your Helpers. Then your family will again reap 100 percent of the pie that corporate America bakes for you; Chapter Two Rational Exuberance: Shareholder Gains Must Match Business Gains; "Over time, the aggregate gains made by ... shareholders must of necessity match the business gains of the company; Reversion to the mean; "It is dangerous ... to apply to the future inductive arguments based on past experience." The dual nature of stock market returnsEnter speculative return; A return to sanity; Combining investment return and speculative return: total stock market returns; Accurately forecasting short-term swings in investor emotions is not possible. But forecasting the long-term economics of investing has carried remarkably high odds of success; The real market and the expectations market; The stock market is a giant distraction to the business of investing; Chapter Three Cast Your Lot with Business: Win by Keeping It Simple-Rely on Occam's Razor. Occam's razor: When there are multiple solutions to a problem, choose the simplest oneThe Total Stock Market Index; Returns earned in the stock market must equal the gross returns earned by all investors in the market; If the data do not prove that indexing wins, well, the data are wrong; Active funds versus benchmark indexes; The record of an investor in the first index mutual fund: 15,000 invested in 1976; value in 2016, 913,340; A caveat and a caution; Chapter Four How Most Investors Turn a Winner's Game into a Loser's Game: "The Relentless Rules of Humble Arithmetic." Before costs, beating the market is a zero-sum game. After costs, it is a loser's gameWe investors as a group get precisely what we don't pay for. If we pay nothing, we get everything; "The relentless rules of humble arithmetic."; It's amazing how difficult it is for a man to understand something if he's paid a small fortune not to understand it; 10,000 grows to 294,600 ... or to 114,700. Where did that 179,900 go?; You put up 100 percent of the capital and you assume 100 percent of the risk. But you earn less than 40 percent of the potential return. Costs make the difference between investment success and investment failureFund investors deserve a fair shake; Chapter Five Focus on the Lowest-Cost Funds: The More the Managers Take, the Less the Investors Make; Fund performance comes and goes. Costs go on forever; Costs are large, and too often ignored; Costs matter. A lot; The magic of compounding, again; Low costs and index funds; If the managers take nothing, the investors receive everything: the market's return; Chapter Six Dividends Are the Investor's (Best?) Friend: But Mutual Funds Confiscate Too Much of Them.
