    According to Wall Street Journal investing columnist Spencer Jakab, most of us have no idea how much money we’re leaving on the table-or that the average saver doesn’t come anywhere close to earning the “average” returns touted in those glossy brochures. We’re handicapped not only by psychological biases and a fear of missing out, but by an industry with multimillion-dollar marketing budgets and an eye on its own bottom line, not yours. Unless you’re very handy, you probably don’t know how to fix your own car or give a family member a decent haircut. But most Americans are expected to be part-time fund managers. With a steady, livable pension check becoming a rarity, we’ve been entrusted with our own finances and, for the most part, failed miserably.Since leaving his job as a top-rated stock analyst to become an investing columnist, Jakab has watched his readers-and his family, friends, and colleagues-make the same mistakes again and again. He set out to evaluate the typical advice people get, from the clearly risky to the seemingly safe, to figure out where it all goes wrong and how they could do much better. Blending entertaining stories with some surprising research, Jakab explains: How a typical saver could have a retirement nest egg twice as large by being cheap and lazy.Why investors who put their savings with a high-performing mutual fund manager end up worse off than if they’d picked one who has struggledThe best way to cash in on your hunch that a recession is looming.How people who check their brokerage accounts frequently end up falling behind the market.Who isn’t nearly as good at investing as the media would have you think. He also explains why you should never trust a World Cup-predicting octopus, why you shouldn’t invest in companies with an X or a Z in their names, and what to do if a time traveler offers you economic news from the future.Whatever your level of expertise, Head I Win, Tails I Win can help you vastly improve your odds of investment success.

    This new book by New York Times bestselling author George Gilder tackles key questions about how monetarism distorts the economy and leads to misallocation of investment. Gilder covers a variety of topics, including Milton Friedman’s greatest “error,” money supply and velocity, the perils of high-volume trading, Bitcoin and how it mimics gold, and why a gold standard is superior to targeting based on a basket of commodities.

    In his new book, investment expert Jim Jubak explores the “new normal” of market volatility. With remarkable insights into the zeitgeist of financial markets and the economy, Jubak combines the big macro trends with the more mundane aspects of life to depict why volatility is here to stay, why things are not going to get any calmer soon, and how you can make investing decisions to profit off this new reality. He presents a unified picture that extends far beyond a narrow view of financial markets, exploring the consequences of using global central banks—the Federal Reserve, the Bank of Japan, the People’s Bank of China, and the European Central Bank—as cash machines; the debt model of growth now used worldwide; and the demographics of aging and the coming war between the young and the old. He also looks at social trends including the anxiety of affluence, particularly the mismatch between the guaranteed cost of education and the uncertainty of future earnings; the real estate “barbell” and the consequences viewing a home as a financial asset and not simply a place to live; and energy, climate, water, and food insecurity. Jubak’s mission is to teach investors how to stay sane when people think the sky is falling. In showing what is causing all of this volatility, he provides practical solutions for how you can smartly respond, build a portfolio, and profit.

    Against a drumbeat of hopelessness about too much student debt and too few jobs requiring a college degree, Smart Is the New Rich: Money Guide for Millennials is a realistic and optimistic road map for millennials to save more, navigate their careers, invest in the stock market, and pay their student loans all at the same time. “Time” is a four-letter word of the very best kind for millennials. It is the single most important driver of wealth, and young people have it in spades. That’s why the time is now for millennials to address their financial health and start planning their wealth. Just as you’d buy a guidebook before a trip through Central America or Europe, this is a guidebook for young people traveling for the first time in the money world: at work, with friends and significant others, negotiating a raise, renting an apartment or saving to buy a house, and of course … retirement. Credit, debt, savings, investment, taxes, mortgages—this book is an all-in-one explanation of these topics and more, with checklists and other tools to make the plan clear and easy. Author Christine Romans is a CNN journalist who has been reporting on the events that have shaped the millennial generation, including the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the financial crisis of 2008, President Barack Obama’s election and reelection, and the wave of protests from Occupy Wall Street to the Arab Spring to #JeSuisCharlie. These events have shaped the millennial generation—a generation that values experiences over materialism and wants more out of their jobs and money than the credit-fueled mirage that came before them.

    Do you consider yourself a long-term investor? If so, chances are you have parked your money with an advisor and pay little attention to its performance and even less to the amount of risk in your portfolio. You may be told by Wall Street to buy stocks or funds and hold them, or to create a diverse portfolio to protect yourself from risk and downturns in the market. Truth be told, new studies show this approach may not be serving the long-term investor well. In his new book, Roger Davis reveals point-blank that Wall Street’s just not that into you. Drawing on an investment career spanning more than two decades, Davis delivers a dynamic and deadly accurate analysis of Wall Street’s “one-size-fits-all” approach-and why even wealthy investors should be wary. Davis, who has two decades of experience managing funds, raises valid questions about traditional investment techniques, exposing the inherent dangers of relying on any one technique as a primary risk management tool. As a listener, you will be taught critical, innovative strategies like how to stress test your portfolio and “lose your losers.” Davis reveals that most investors are less concerned about making a sizeable return on their investments than they are about protecting their wealth; yet many investors have the same unprotected exposure to the stock market that they did in 2008. This book offers investors specific steps they can take to reduce investment risk and the right questions to ask of their current advisors to understand whether they should make a change. Refreshingly candid and highly informative, Wall Street’s Just Not That Into You offers a bold and thought-provoking alternative to the many books that offer up the same old principles of years gone by.

    In a time of market volatility and economic uncertainty, when high-frequency traders and hedge fund managers seem to tower over the average investor, Burton G. Malkiel’s classic and gimmick-free investment guide is now more necessary than ever. Rather than tricks, what you’ll find here is a time-tested and thoroughly research-based strategy for your portfolio. Whether you’re considering your first 401(k) contribution or contemplating retirement, this fully updated edition of A Random Walk down Wall Street should be the first book on your reading list. In A Random Walk down Wall Street you’ll learn the basic terminology of “the Street” and how to navigate it with the help of a user-friendly, long-range investment strategy that really works. Drawing on his own varied experience as an economist, financial adviser, and successful investor, Malkiel shows why, despite recent advice to the contrary from so-called experts in the wake of the financial crisis, an individual who buys over time and holds a low-cost, internationally diversified index of securities is still likely to exceed the performance of portfolios carefully picked by professionals using sophisticated analytical techniques. In this new edition, Malkiel has provided valuable new material throughout the book on exchange-traded funds and investment opportunities in emerging markets, and in a brand-new, timely chapter, Malkiel authoritatively assesses the pitfalls and prospects of the latest investing trend, “smart beta.” On top of all this, the book’s classic life-cycle guide to investing, which tailors strategies to investors of any age, will help you plan confidently for the future. You’ll learn how to analyze the potential returns, not only for basic stocks and bonds but for the full range of investment opportunities—from money-market accounts and real estate investment trusts to insurance, home ownership, and tangible assets like gold and collectibles. Individual investors of every level of experience and risk tolerance will find throughout the book the critical facts and step-by-step guidance they need to protect and grow their hard-earned dollars. With the prevailing wisdom changing on an almost daily basis, Malkiel’s reassuring and vastly informative volume remains the best investment guide money can buy.

    The chief investment officer of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management explains why goals, not markets, should be the primary focus of your investment strategy—and offers a practical, innovative framework for making smarter choices about aligning your goals to your investment strategy. Today all of us bear the burden of investing wisely, but too many of us are preoccupied with the wrong priorities: increasing returns at all costs, finding the next star fund manager, or beating “the market.” Unfortunately conventional portfolio theory and the grand debates in finance have offered investors only incomplete solutions. What is needed, argues Ashvin B. Chhabra, is a framework that shifts the focus of investment strategy from portfolios and markets to individuals and the objectives that really matter: things like protecting against unexpected financial crises, paying for education or retirement, and financing philanthropy and entrepreneurship. The Aspirational Investor is a practical, innovative approach to managing wealth based on key goals and the careful allocation of risks rather than responding to the whims of the financial markets. Chhabra introduces his “Wealth Allocation Framework,” which accommodates the three seemingly incompatible objectives that must underpin every sound wealth management plan: the need for financial security in the face of known and unknowable risks; the need to maintain current living standards over time despite inflation; and the need to pursue aspirational goals for wealth creation. Chhabra reveals some surprising facts about wealth creation, reinterprets the success formulas of investing greats like Warren Buffett, and closes the gap between theory and practice by simplifying our understanding of key asset classes and laying out a concise roadmap for identifying, prioritizing, and quantifying financial goals. Raising the bar for what we should expect from our investment portfolios—and our financial advisors—The Aspirational Investor sets us on a path to more confident and fulfilling financial lives.
