9780143036845: Investing from Scratch: A Handbook for the Young Investor

Fully updated—the popular guide for young investors who want to take control of their financial future

A lot has changed since Investing from Scratch first appeared, and this revised edition takes it all into account for those in their 20s and 30s who are hoping to invest their way to wealth. In a straightforward style backed by useful charts and graphs, finance expert James Lowell makes it clear that you don’t need to be rich to become that way in the market. Readers will learn how to:
· create a budget they can live and invest with
· select the most appropriate investments
· design a mutual fund portfolio, and much more

With easy-to-understand definitions of essential terms, up-to-date post–“Internet bubble” strategies, and fully revised charts and graphs, Investing from Scratch is an invaluable resource for future investors.

About the Author:

James Lowell is the editor of Fidelity Investor, a mutual fund advisory newsletter published by Phillips, and has spent the last decade covering mutual funds for all media. A feature columnist for the Dow Jones Investment Advisor Magazine, he is the author of Investing from Scratch and How to Survive in the Real World. He lives in Massachusetts.

From Publishers Weekly:

Lowell, editor of FundWorks on America OnLine and author of How to Survive in the Real World, offers an investment primer for readers in their 20s and 30s who are just beginning to have money available for investing. In a straightforward yet engaging style, Lowell first explains how to establish a realistic budget and then walks readers through the maze of investment opportunities, including stocks and mutual funds. He offers basic advice on deciphering economic news as well as somewhat more advanced strategies, such as on-line trading, investment clubs and ethical investing. Here, readers not only get the details on individual subjects but also some reasonable warnings from the author. For example, "becoming a landlord isn't all it's cracked up to be, but when it comes to the potential for the best returns?and the most risks?owning an investment property yourself is the way to go. If this is for you, make sure you are ready for the monetary, legal, and psychological demands that even a single investment condo can rain down upon you." The final chapters contain useful information on retirement planning for both the self-employed and workers who have 401(k) plans. Also, each chapter includes a list of books and other publications on particular subjects. The book is narrower in focus than Beth Kobliner's recent Get a Financial Life, for example, but it is an excellent addition to the overcrowded personal finance shelves.
