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

Bank Investing: A Practitioner's Field Guide offers you the essential toolkit to become a successful bank investor. It packages practical lessons, theoretical knowledge, and historical context, all into one compelling and hopefully entertaining book. The book includes conversations with investors and management teams. Investors include activists, financials specialists, credit investors, and multibillion-dollar asset managers. Management teams have a broad representation from the c-suite of a broad spectrum of participants ranging from a fintech to a bank with over $30bn in assets. Banks are the oil that lubricates the economy. An understanding of how they operate is essential for analyzing any part of the economy since banks represent a large investing universe and control a sizeable portion of assets. With over 800 public tickers representing over $3 trillion market cap, banks are larger than several other industry groups. Banks are the largest financial intermediaries in the U.S., controlling $15 trillion in financial assets. Their relative size can amplify effects. For example, a small regulatory or environmental change can cascade and ripple through financial markets and have a major impact on the economy. As fintechs gain in prominence, a fundamental grasp of topics related to banking will help enhance understanding of fintech. Bank investing can be a fruitful pursuit: The most successful investor of our times, Warren Buffett, has had a sizeable investment in banks over time (close to a third of his portfolio weight used to be in banks). Banks allow you to make macro-economic bets since they are highly levered to business cycles. Bank investing allows you to scale your knowledge, as they have relatively homogenized business models... ...at the same time, banks are diverse enough to drive meaningful dispersion in price performance. This divergence of performance can be taken advantage of by an astute and prepared securities analyst. Banks are good vehicles to make specific investment plays on geographic regions, demographic trends (suburban to urban migration, aging), industries (agriculture, tech, energy), news flow (trade/tariffs, weather), real estate subsectors (NYC office, bay area apartments), and investing themes such as ESG, cryptocurrency, and venture capital. Finally, fintech disruption is creating an investing opportunity to play the digital divide between banks that embrace technology successfully and those that get left behind.

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.
