A strategy to profit when markets are range bound–which is half of the time

One of the most significant challenges facing today’s active investor is how to make money during the times when markets are going nowhere. Bookshelves are groaning under the weight of titles written on investment strategy in bull markets, but there is little guidance on how to invest in range bound markets. In this book, author and respected investment portfolio manager Vitaliy Katsenelson makes a convincing case for range-bound market conditions and offers readers a practical strategy for proactive investing that improves profits. This guide provides investors with the know-how to modify the traditional, fundamentally driven strategies that they have become so accustomed to using in bull markets, so that they can work in range bound markets. It offers new approaches to margin of safety and presents terrific insights into buy and sell disciplines, international investing, "Quality, Valuation, and Growth" framework, and much more.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Katsenelson's is straightforward enough to keep a rookie investor engaged, and in-depth enough to retain the interest of old pros, which makes this a great book for those of all skill levels. He does a comprehensive job of reviewing the market's past, projecting its potential future, and developing a case for why value investing will shine as the market stagnates. He combines historical and financial analysis, along with engaging stories from his experience as a professional investment manager.--Chuck Saletta, Motley Fool

This book should be considered a practical compendium of modern finance, leaving no stones unturned on your way to better investments. Katsenelson’s passionate, witty and accessible writing expertly takes the reader through his original framework for valuing stocks in range-bound markets. A student of history and an overzealous stock picker, the author entertainingly illustrates every concept with a collection of real-world examples, demonstrating an impressive breadth and depth of understanding of what makes stocks move!--J.P. Tremblay, CFA

"How to adapt value investing for "range-bound" markets." (Financial Times, Tues 26th February 2008)

"The new Benjamin Graham is Vitaliy N. Katsenelson. I highly recommend Katsenelson's book, Active Value Investing: Making Money in Range-Bound Markets (Wiley, 2007). I like to think the old Ben Graham would have recommended it, too."--Forbes

Never had thought about a range bound market, but author certainly proved it exists with interesting research and why it happens. Provides an excellent insight on steps to take to succeed in this type of market environment. A must read for an investor.

As a student of finance, Active Value Investing: Making Money in Range-Bound Markets provided me with new insights about the overall market and how to value individual stocks. The book details why the market is going to be a volatile place for years to come and provides a practical approach on analyzing stocks and calculating figures to buy good stocks at low prices and sell when they become overvalued. The book discusses complex models and topics in terms that are easy to understand and follow. Reading this book made me a better investor and I recommend it to anyone looking for a methodical way to determine buy and sell prices for any stock.
