Overview


Previous editions of this comprehensive reference book have been called Ã?"required reading for students, investors, and writersÃ?" by USA Today, and Ã?"a teeming reservoir of informationÃ?" by the Oakland Tribune. Updated to reflect the 2006 investment climate, the new edition of BarronÃ?'s Finance and Investment Handbook presents a financial dictionary of more than 5,000 terms, an analysis of many current investment opportunities, guidelines for non-experts on what to look for when reading corporate reports and financial news sources, an up-to-date directory of hundreds of publicly traded corporations in the United States and Canada, and a directory listing the names and addresses of brokerage houses, mutual funds families, banks, federal and state regulators, and other major financial institutions. Here in one big volume is indispensable information for planning and maintaining a healthy investment portfolio.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This reasonably priced, fact-filled title was originally issued less than a year ago ( LJ 9/1/86). The new edition contains essentially the same information, but it reflects changes brought about by the passage of the Tax Reform Act of 1986 and other recent events. Statistical data for 1986 are included. Public, academic, and appropriate special libraries lacking the first edition should consider purchasing this additional source of basic business information. Leonard Grundt, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden Ctiy, N.Y.
