Praise for Focus on Value "Focus on Value-with its theoretical and practical focus on economic profit fundamentals-is a modern day 'Graham and Dodd' primer on company and equity securities analysis."-Robert S. Hamada, Edward Eagle Brown Distinguished Service Professor of Finance, The University of Chicago Graduate School of Business "Now that investors have abandoned momentum and are migrating back to fundamental investing, the market has become a more rational place. This book is a manual for serious investors who believe that identifying growing corporate earning power is the foundation of value creation. Those following its precepts should minimize risk and be rewarded over the long term."-Byron R. Wien, Chief U.S. Investment Strategist, Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co. "Economic profit is one of the most useful managerial tools as well as a key to understanding the valuation of companies. Focus on Value is an outstanding piece of work. It captures the full spectrum of the 'Metric Wars' without ever confusing the reader. The serious student of economic profit will be richly rewarded by reading this excellent book from cover to cover."-Mario A. Corti, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Swissair Group, Zurich "Messrs. Grant and Abate have provided an analytical tool for corporate executives and investment managers which takes the concepts of economic profit and value maximization to the next level."-Suresh Thadhani, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President, Alcan, Inc. "This book makes a real contribution to the most critical element in helping companies implement efficient capital resource allocation by highlighting the direct linkage between economic profit and stock price."-Jack Warner, Chairman, Kerry Inc. "The authors have put together an excellent piece of work and finally provide readers seriously interested in applying economic profit with a practical, market-oriented approach to integrate the basic building blocks of economic profit with valuation and market expectations."-David King, Director of Research, North America, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Corporate Value Consulting "In an era of following the herd toward indexation and price momentum, it is refreshing to see thinking out of the box and substantiating the tenets of an investment process that equates value with real investment opportunity."-Eric Colson, Senior Vice President, Callan Associates www.wileyfinance.com

John Calverley's new book is about understanding what s going on, how policy impinges on it, what investors can do and what is likely to happen. This extremely topical and timely new book from the well known economist and Head of Research, Standard Chartered Bank is the first book to examine in depth the financial fallout of 2008 and explore the implications and solutions for individuals, companies and central banks. His previous book, Bubbles and How to Survive Them predicted the current financial situation. This essential readable, non-technical guide is essential reading for everyone and particularly for investment professionals everywhere. In this new book - an investor's survival kit - he: * Outlines the crises we now face and reviews how we got here. * Looks closely at the huge housing bubbles in UK and the US, as well as those in Australia, Spain, Japan and Hong Kong. * Explores the anatomy of bubbles and presents a checklist for identifying them. * Tells the story of how the housing bubble led to the currrent financial crisis and how far prices might fall, focussing on household debt as the value of household assets collapse. * Examines strategies for investors, who must try to avoid bubbles or, more dangerously, seek them out and ride them. * Reveals what will happen next. In his original book, Bubbles and How to Survive Them John Calverley warned vigorously of the danger from the housing bubble and warned that stock prices might take off again and reach vulnerable levels (as indeed occurred in 2006-7.)

Risk has two sides: underestimating it harms the investor, while overestimating it prevents the implementation of bold business projects. This book explains, from the point of view of the practitioner, the analysis of investment risk - a proper account of adequate risk management strategies - and offers an objective and readable account of the most common investment risk management procedures. It will not be highly mathematical, although mathematical formulae and technical graphs will be used where necessary, and will not rely on excessive technical jargon. The author also covers guidelines of regulatory institutions that protect the market and the investor: Bank of International Settlements, US SEC and UK FSA.

This book is about investing in what could well be the greatest opportunity in the 21st century. There is no comparable book that looks at the opportunity that is India from a wealth-creating perspective nor examines the depth of opportunity from a western perspective. This book offers no ponderous policy prescriptions nor pontificates in any way. It describes the opportunities and charts a course through them. It is for those people interested in a great new market but who may not know anything beyond what the newspapers say and lack an understanding of a very lucrative proposition. This book aims to take a gigantic leap in terms of a foreign investor's understanding of where India stands financially and what its market represents in terms of an opportunity for them.
