Publisher's Summary

The stock-investing classic - updated to help you win in today's chaotic global economy

Much has changed since the last edition of Stocks for the Long Run. The financial crisis, the deepest bear market since the Great Depression, and the continued growth of the emerging markets are just some of the contingencies directly affecting every portfolio in the world.

To help you navigate markets and make the best investment decisions, Jeremy Siegel has updated his best-selling guide to stock market investing.

This new edition of Stocks for the Long Run answers all the important questions of today: How did the crisis alter the fi nancial markets and the future of stock returns? What are the sources of long-term economic growth? How does the Fed really impact investing decisions? Should you hedge against currency instability?

Stocks for the Long Run, Fifth Edition, includes brand-new coverage of:

The Financial Crisis
Siegel provides an expert's analysis of the most important factors behind the crisis; the state of current stability/instability of the financial system and where the stock market fits in; and the viability of value investing as a long-term strategy.

China and India
The economies of these nations are more than one-third larger than they were before the 2008 financial crisis; you'll get the information you need to earn long-term profits in this new environment.

Global Markets
Learn all there is to know about the nature, size, and role of diversification in today's global economy; Siegel extends his projections of the global economy until the end of this century.

Market Valuation
Can stocks still provide 6 to 7 percent per year after inflation? This edition forecasts future stock returns and shows how to determine whether the market is overvalued or not.

Long run

If you are interested in the history of the stock markets performance then this is for you. However if you are wanting to learn to how to invest money better then look elsewhere. I found this book to be 13 hours of rambling with no take aways for me. If you want history then yes, if you want to learn to invest go elsewhere.

Fabulous

Jeremey Siegel provides outstanding insight into equities as well as how they relate to economics, geopolitics, and other asset classes. I especially liked his takes on causes/events leading up to and following the major US recessions throughout history. Definitely recommend if you have any interest in financial markets.

Excellent revised version, excellent professor!

Prof Siegel was one of the most memorable classes I had at Wharton and 16 years after graduation, it is still a thrill to be able to partake in his wisdom, especially now as I manage my family’s investment strategy... can’t wait for the next revision!

Packed with useful guidance

This is the type of book that's worth listening to several times as there is too much in it to take in properly in one go. I like that it is based on stats and facts, which helps build a picture of reality, at least in terms of historical stock market/investment.
