Book Description

March 21 2005 0070895031 978-0070895034 Canadian
The Fifth Canadian Edition of Investments provides instructors with a text that introduces the important concepts and theories (e.g., the risk and return relationship of an investment, modern portfolio theory) combined with practical applications and an understanding of new and innovative financial products (e.g., derivatives).

Bodie is recognized for its blend of practical and theoretical coverage while maintaining an appropriate rigour and clear writing style. Its unifying theme is that security markets are nearly efficient, meaning that most securities are usually priced appropriately given their risk and return attributes. The text places greater emphasis on asset allocation and offers a much broader and deeper treatment of futures, options, and other derivative security markets than most investment texts.
