From the Inside Flap:

The students at the University of Kansas have earned an annualaverage return over 20% since 1994 when the Applied PortfolioManagement program was founded, blowing away the NASDAQ’saverage 9% over the same period. Learn how they did it and helpboost the return on your own portfolio.

In 1988, when investment professional Kent McCarthy returned toteach at his alma mater, the University of Kansas, he planted theseeds for the Applied Portfolio Management (APM) program—acourse that offers students a unique opportunity to learn theintricacies of investing by managing a real portfolio.

Thirteen years later, with the help of CatherineShenoy—the Director of APM for the last sevenyears—this class has compiled a remarkable record ofinvestment performance and student achievement. It has launched theWall Street careers of many students, and the class portfolio hasoutperformed the market in dramatic fashion over its history.

Now, with Applied Portfolio Management, Shenoy and McCarthyshare their experiences of this class with you and discuss how toincorporate the methods it teaches into your everyday investmentendeavors. Divided into three comprehensive parts, this detailedguide puts successful investing in perspective by addressing someof the most essential elements of this field, such as understandingthe fundamental drivers of business success, buying at the rightprice, and building a network of contacts.

Step by step, you'll learn how to operate in today's dynamicmarket environment—one in which changing investmentconditions will force you to continuously shift your investmentstrategy. Along the way, you'll also discover how to dig behind thefacade of press releases and spin to figure out what's really goingon with an organization, and answer important questions such as:How does a company make money? What numbers, from quarterly reportsto annual statements, demonstrate how well a company isaccomplishing its mission? What are the people running the companylike?

Other issues that are carefully covered include:

  • How quality of information—and evaluating and interpretingit correctly—is the key difference between average returnsand extraordinary returns

  • What it takes to create a "case" for the companies in yourportfolio—from putting together a pro forma analysis tocoming up with a final target price based on your valuation

  • Where world trends, local biases, and corporate governance fitinto the investment picture

  • And much more

Good investment habits are built from the ground up and can bedeveloped by learning from a network of individuals with a widevariety of views. These are the ingredients that make a successfulinvestor, and these are the ingredients that the Applied PortfolioManagement program at the University of Kansas has tried tocultivate.

If you're looking to enhance your investment performance,Applied Portfolio Management has the information you need tosucceed. Pick it up today and put its ideas to work for you.
