New Year Reads

I have spent quite a bit of time churning out some new research in-house and hope to publish it all in the next few months as it all gets FINRA approved.

In the meantime, below are a few of my favorite books from 2012:

Empire of Wealth: The Epic History of American Economic Power  – Gordon (my favorite, though it was published in 2005)

Jackass Investing: Don’t do it. Profit from it – Dever (unfortunate title, good book)

What Works on Wall Street, Fourth Edition: The Classic Guide to the Best-Performing Investment Strategies of All Time – O’Shaughnessy (good update and review of quant stock screens)


as well as a few I’m looking forward to in the next few months:

Vanished Kingdoms: The Rise and Fall of States and Nations – Davies

Abnormal Returns: Winning Strategies from the Frontlines of the Investment Blogosphere – Viskanta

The Alpha Masters: Unlocking the Genius of the World’s Top Hedge Funds – Ahuja

Backstage Wall Street: An Insider’s Guide to Knowing Who to Trust, Who to Run From, and How to Maximize Your Investments – Brown
