"Traditionally, investments textbooks tend to fall into one of two camps. The first type has a greater focus on portfolio management and covers a significant amount of portfolio theory. The second type is more concerned with security analysis and generally contains fairly detailed coverage of fundamental analysis as a tool for equity valuation. Today, most texts try to cover all the bases by including some chapters drawn from one camp and some from another. The result of trying to cover everything is either a very long book or one that forces the instructor to bounce back and forth between chapters. This frequently leads to a noticeable lack of consistency in treatment. Differ-ent chapters have completely different approaches: Some are computational, some are theoretical, and some are descriptive. Some do macroeconomic forecasting, some do mean-variance portfolio theory and beta estimation, and some do financial statements analysis. Options and futures are often essentially tacked on the back to round out this disconnected assortment"--

Fundamentals of Investments is aimed at the introductory investments class with students who have relatively little familiarity with investments. The text is written in a relaxed, informal style that engages the student and treats him or her as an active participant rather than a passive information absorber. Fundamentals appeals to intuition and basic principles whenever possible because the authors found that this approach effectively promotes understanding. The text also makes extensive use of examples, drawing on material from the world around us and using familiar companies wherever appropriate. Throughout, the text strikes a balance by introducing and covering the essentials while leaving some of the details to follow-up courses. Topics are organized in a way that would make them easy to apply—whether to a portfolio simulation or to real life—and support these topics with hands-on activities. This ninth edition provides a terrific framework and introduction for students looking to pursue a career in investments—particularly for those interested in eventually holding the CFA charter.
