Overview

The market leading undergraduate investments textbook, Essentials of Investments, 9e by Bodie, Kane, and Marcus, emphasizes asset allocation while presenting the practical applications of investment theory. The authors have eliminated unnecessary mathematical detail and concentrate on the intuition and insights that will be useful to practitioners throughout their careers as new ideas and challenges emerge from the financial marketplace. The Ninth Edition includes increased attention to changes in market structure and trading technology, while continuing to be organized around one basic theme - that security markets are nearly efficient.

Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A text that treats markets, portfolio theory, securities, options and futures, and investment management within a framework holding that most securities are usually priced appropriately. It is consistent with the Chartered Financial Analyst curriculum, and overviews of the investment process and strategies are modeled after the ICFA outline. This second edition eliminates the formal analysis of utility functions. Appendices offer mathematical tables and sample pages from sources of financial and economic information. Annotation c.
