If you mostly invest in stocks, you probably focus on individual companies by applying a bottoms-up analysis. You look at a company's profitability, dive into financial statements, and educate yourself about its products and services. You may at times look at the broader economy, monetary policy, and perhaps politics-but maybe not. It's a 'micro' approach to investing. Your primary objective is a portfolio with a moderate-to-high risk/return profile. If, on the other hand, you are a bond-oriented investor, you probably do the opposite. You likely think more like an economist, keeping a close eye on interest rates and perhaps currencies, and you focus predominantly on global macroeconomic developments. You may at times look at the entities issuing the bonds-but probably at just their ratings. You have a 'macro' approach to investing, and your primary objective is probably a conservative portfolio, focused on income, with a low risk/return profile. Despite popular belief, bond and stock investors are not opposites. After all, both stocks and bonds can be looked at in identical terms: as instruments representing discounted cash flow. Understanding this, astute stock investors can-in these times of volatility and uncertainty-apply bond strategies to safeguard returns. And wily bond investors, facing perennially low yields, can do better using a stock selection strategy designed to improve the portfolio's income distribution. In Mastering Stocks and Bonds, you will learn: 1) Why bond and stock markets-and securities-are more alike than different; 2) How to do equity-style analysis on bonds and a fixed income-style analysis on stocks; 3) How to construct an effective 'commingled' bond and stock portfolio; 4) How a major-league portfolio manager looks at markets and securities Along the way, you will learn about equity and fixed income trends, get practical tips, and gain a solid education on stocks, bonds, and convertible bonds. Looking at stocks through the lens of a bond buyer, and vice versa, has the power to improve your portfolio's overall returns and reduce risk.Über den Autor:
