Overview

"The publication of this new and greatly enlarged edition of The Battle For Investment Survival is due to two factors--the steady demand for the other edition which is now out of print and the generally flattering comment made by various readers of that edition. The contents of the earlier book are included here, practically without change, but this edition contains considerable additional material.

Overview

"The publication of this new and greatly enlarged edition of The Battle For Investment Survival is due to two factors--the steady demand for the other edition which is now out of print and the generally flattering comment made by various readers of that edition. The contents of the earlier book are included here, practically without change, but this edition contains considerable additional material.

"Any earner who earns more than he can spend is automatically an investor. It doesn't matter in the slightest whether he wants to be or not, or even whether he realizes that he is investing.

"All the above boils down to the necessity of measuring the return from investments in purchasing power rather than dollars. You must get back a sufficient number of additional dollars to make up for lost purchasing power if prices are rising, and a high enough percentage of your original dollars if prices are falling. I put it this way because usually there is some profit from investments in times of rising prices (but rarely enough), and generally there are losses in times of falling prices, and usually too many."

Meet the Author

Gerald Loeb was a founding partner of E.F. Hutton & Co., a renowned Wall Street trader, and the author of the books The Battle For Investment Survival. Loeb promoted a view of the market as too risky to hold stocks for the long term in contrast to well known value investors. Although he had largely avoided personal losses, the Wall Street Crash of 1929 greatly affected Loeb's investing style, making him skeptical of holding stocks for the long term. Loeb offered a contrarian investing viewpoint, in books and columns in Barron's, The Wall Street Journal, and Investor Magazine. Forbes magazine called Loeb "the most quoted man on Wall Street."
