Overview

Heralded as one of the top market experts on Wall Street, Stephen Leeb now offers essential investment strategies for financial survival and growth in the precarious decade ahead. In The Agile Investor, Leeb predicts that the market will be transformed by a new surge of inflation and offers specific strategies for wringing big profits from this new and trickier environment. In a clear, accessible manner, Leeb describes the dramatic changes that lie ahead and explains why traditional investment strategies will be doomed to failure. Leeb's resounding message strikes loud and clear: We are entering a period of rapid inflation and jagged economic growth. In this volatile future, the old adage of buy and hold will no longer ring true. Timing will be more essential than ever to financial success. Hard assets like real estate and gold will trade places with financial assets as the long-term portfolio picks of choice. And while it will still be an age of opportunity, the opportunities will be considerably different from those of the 1980s and early '90s.

Editorial Reviews

USA Today
A savvy investment advisor with an excellent record for picking winners.
Library Journal
Warning, dark times lie ahead!-at least according to Leeb (Market Timing for the Nineties, LJ 6/1/93), a frequent guest on numerous TV investment programs. His purpose in writing this book is to help investors deal with what he predicts will be a stagnant stock market. The author argues that in the next ten years the incredible bull market of the 1980s and 1990s will end and the country will experience great inflation, including $5-a-gallon gasoline and mortgage rates in the high teens. Leeb cites lack of economic growth, a continued threat from foreign competition, a crisis in the American education system, and huge amounts of debt as reasons why. He claims that the days of buying a stock and holding it are over, because a volatile market will require investors to use market timing to buy and sell stocks at precisely the right moment. Leeb offers a well-written, easy-to-understand text with a premise that lay investors should heed.-Joel Jones, Kansas City P.L., Mo.
