This book will familiarize the interested investor with Swiss equity shares at a time when they are becoming an attractive investment. It provides a short historical perspective and shows how trends detrimental to the equity market were broken in the mid-1970s and early 1980s. The performance of the Swiss equity market over time is revealed and the main determinants of share price cycles are investigated. A brief description of the history, organization, and significance of all Swiss stock exchanges is provided. The book also provides all the information a dealer requires concerning procedures and costs, trading hours, and types of transactions, as well as quotation lists and samples of individual billings. It describes how to deal at a Swiss stock exchange and how to list a share there. Foreign investors are instructed as to how to deal with their tax situation, legal restrictions upon the transfer of shares, and the implications of Swiss banking secrecy. Swiss corporate finance reporting and accounting practices are explained and interpreted. An Appendix provides an analysis of the shares of leading Swiss companies.
Stock Market Modeling and Forecasting translates experience in system adaptation gained in an engineering context to the modeling of financial markets with a view to improving the capture and understanding of market dynamics. The modeling process is considered as identifying a dynamic system in which a real stock market is treated as an unknown plant and the identification model proposed is tuned by feedback of the matching error. Like a physical system, a financial market exhibits fast and slow dynamics corresponding to external (such as company value and profitability) and internal forces (such as investor sentiment and commodity prices) respectively. The framework presented here, consisting of an internal model and an adaptive filter, is successful at considering both fast and slow market dynamics. A double selection method is efficacious in identifying input factors influential in market movements, revealing them to be both frequency- and market-dependent.
How many times have you heard about "some guy" who made a bunch of money in the stock market and wished that could be you? Yet you don't invest in the stock market, except maybe through your 401k, which of course has never been that impressive. Perhaps that's because the professionals manage your money differently than they handle their own. I, on the other hand, am just a regular guy like you with the "know how" that the pros won't give you because then you wouldn't need them. In fact, when it comes to investing in the stock market, all you need to know is one simple rule, but actually implementing it can be the tricky part. Whether you have $100 or $100,000, I will teach you the easy, effective way to invest; the way guys like Warren Buffet do it, not the way the so called "professionals" do. Now I won't lie to you, it takes patience, diligence and some sacrifice, but in the end, you could end up a millionaire. Of course if you prefer to invest your money into top-of-the-line cell phones, satellite TV, hot cars and expensive cruises, then this book is probably not for you because you are already rich or you are making decisions that will ensure that you never will be. So if you want to be wealthy and you are willing to take the steps to do it, start here.
It's Peanuts galore in this collection featuring the familiar, globally recognized cast of Charlie Brown and his neighbourhood friends. The classic humour and endearing artwork of Charles M. Schulz will once again capture the hearts and tickle the funny bones of readers as Charlie Brown, Lucy, Schroeder, and all the others come together to do what they do best---be kids (oh, and be a dog and A a bird!).
Emerging Markets and the Global Economy investigates analytical techniques suited to emerging market economies, which are typically prone to policy shocks. Despite the large body of emerging market finance literature, their underlying dynamics and interactions with other economies remain challenging and mysterious because standard financial models measure them imprecisely.
Describing the linkages between emerging and developed markets, this collection systematically explores several crucial issues in asset valuation and risk management. Contributors present new theoretical constructions and empirical methods for handling cross-country volatility and sudden regime shifts. Usually attractive for investors because of the superior growth they can deliver, emerging markets can have a low correlation with developed markets. This collection advances your knowledge about their inherent characteristics.
