The Coffeehouse

Overview

In 1998, after thirteen years of providing investment advice for Smith Barney, Bill Schultheis wrote a simple book for people who felt overwhelmed by the stock market. He had discovered that when you simplify your investment decisions, you end up getting better returns. As a bonus, you gain more time for family, friends, and other pursuits.

The Coffeehouse Investor explains why we should stop thinking about top-rated stocks and mutual funds, shifts in interest rates, and predictions for the economy. Stop trying to beat the stock market average, which few “experts” ever do. Instead, just remember three simple principles: Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. There’s no such thing as a free lunch. And save for a rainy day.

By focusing more on your passions and creativity and less on the daily ups and downs, you will actually build more wealth—and improve the quality of your life at the same time.

The fact is index funds outperform over 75% of managed funds. Therefore, using them and getting on with your life IS good advice.

The reader should realize the author is still bitter about being 'let go' from his previous brokerage firm employer. Therefore his 'advice' is somewhat biased. Basically saying forget advice and just by index funds... well, while index funds could certainly make up a portion of many investor's portfolios, putting all your investment assets in them and getting on with you life is not always the best advice. Check out the S&P 500 index the last 5 years. I believe the right financial advisor is very valuable. I think Bill (the author)was so bitter about being 'let go' that he bashes all advisors. Had this book been about how to find the right advisor and get on with your life I believe it would have been a worthwhile read.
