A plain English Guide for Australian Stock Exchange Investors
by N E Renton (Wrightbooks, 2002)
The topics covered include some neglected investment yardsticks; several interesting types of security; and a few investment strategies. Floats, takeovers, options, proxies and share placements are among the other current issues discussed. The informed investor is likely to become a wealthier investor.
In particular, this is a book for those wanting more excitement and better returns than those available from putting money into dull term deposits or boring managed funds - even if such a strategy of buying shares directly on the stock exchange means more work.
With a Glossary, an Index and a Foreword by Ted Rofe.
