About this title


Invest sucessfully in the companies that will prevail through thechnology booms and busts -- with indispensable advice from the world's most trusted business publication, The Wall Street Journal.
There's no doubt the Internet has changed the way we live, the way we work, and the way we invest in the new millennium. But while many investors made fortunes investing in technology companies while the Intenet stock bubble was inflating, countess others lost their shirts when the bubble finally popped.
Now, Stephen E. Frank -- a veteran of The Wall Street Journal and CNBC -- explains what we need to know about investing in Intenet and technology stocks in today's postbubble economy. In Networth, Frank lays out a straightforward framework for understanding how the Intenet works, now different business models stackup, and how to think about technology stacks as part of a broader investment portfolio. He weighs in on the potential risks and rewards of each Internet subsector, and profiles a slew of dot-com companies, from obvious candidates like to transformed titans of the old economy like United Parcel Service.


While most investors avoid Internet stocks like the plague, Wall Street Journal and CNBC correspondent Stephen Frank thinks the sector is worth a second look. In NetWorth, Frank sorts through the wreckage of the dot-com crash and offers a framework by which savvy investors can assess who the winners will be in the next few years. Frank's basic premise: the Internet is here to stay, and that every company will in some way soon be an Internet company. He begins the book with an insightful chapter on the merger of AOL and Time Warner, calling the new company "the paradigm of the new economy." Frank then examines all the categories of Internet stocks and the companies within, including consumer (, Yahoo!, E-Trade), business to business (Ariba, I2, DoubleClick), and infrastructure companies (Akamai, Oracle, VeriSign). In all, NetWorth is a useful overview of this downtrodden sector that should interest anyone with a long investing horizon and a contrarian point of view. --Harry C. Edwards
