Overview

The market leader,Essentials Of Investments,4/E is an undergraduate textbook on investment analysis. The authors have eliminated unnecessary mathematical detail and concentrated on the intuition and insights that will be useful to practitioners throughout their careers as new ideas and challenges emerge from the financial marketplace. ESSENTIALS maintains the theme of asset allocation (authors discuss asset pricing and trading then apply these theories to portfolio planning in real-world securities markets that are governed by risk/return relationships). ESSENTIALS also continues to develop modern topics. The major objective in this revision is to maintain the current level in content and coverage,but work on improving the text's accessibility by enhancing presentation,pedagogy,and design.
