Product description

From Booklist

"The constant pursuit of growth--through buying hot stocks, seeking out the next big thing, or investing in the fastest growing countries--dooms investors to poor returns." So states Siegel, an academic who, with optimism and extensive research, suggests that the future is bright for equity investors in old, reliable companies in slow-growth or even shrinking industries. He presents a framework for understanding world markets and offers strategies for protecting and enhancing long-term capital. Stocks will outperform bonds and other inflation hedges, and he recommends supplementing indexed portfolios using three directives--buy stocks that have sustainable cash flows and return these cash flows to the shareholders with dividends; recognize the economic power shifts from the West toward China, India, and the rest of the developing world; and accumulate shares in firms with reasonable valuations relative to their expected growth while avoiding trendy investments. Warren Buffet, the preeminent investor, suggests that those interested in investments should study Siegel's new facts and ideas. Mary Whaley

Review

“Jeremy Siegel has done us a great service with his superb work. While no one can predict the future of stocks with certainty, Siegel’s analysis marks the verdict of history: the triumph of the shareholder over the shareflipper, the investor over the speculator, the builder over the gambler. Strong conclusions, good writing, and a refreshing message make this a compelling and important book to read.” —Jim Collins, author of Good to Great and co-author of Built to Last

“Jeremy Siegel’s lively new book is much more than a typical Siegelian guide to asset allocation. It is a masterful, provocative, fact-stuffed, commonsense, and creative guide to profitable stock-picking strategies. Even the most cynical and experienced investors will gain from reading Siegel’s latest contribution to their well-being.” —Peter L. Bernstein, author of Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk

“Jeremy Siegel is a wise man and an astute observer of the ever-changing investment universe. The Future for Investors is essential for the professional and serious amateur investor to navigate the new era.” —Barton M. Biggs, managing partner, Traxis Partners 

“The professor who taught America to love stocks in the 1990s is as optimistic as ever. But he’s added a new twist to his theory: Get dividends.” —Money magazine, December 2004  

“Siegel thinks about the future in a unique and original way, with insightful thoughts about the broad sweep of history as well as hard-headed investment analysis.” —Robert Shiller, author of Irrational Exuberance and The New Financial Order

“The ‘Wizard of Wharton’ weighs in on the markets ahead. . . . Deeply committed to understanding the macro-financial sector and its constant change has made him an outstanding teacher for [those] who hunger for his brand of forward-looking economics as they apply to the markets.” —Stocks, Futures & Options magazine, September 2004
