8th Edition
John Downes and Jordan Elliot Goodman - All books by this author

Updated to reflect the current investment climate, this large reference volume presents a financial dictionary with definitions of more than 5,000 terms, an analysis of many current investment opportunities, guidelines for non-experts on what to look for when reading corporate reports and financial news sources, an up-to-date directory of hundreds of publicly traded corporations in the United States and Canada, and a directory listing the names and addresses of brokerage houses, mutual funds families, banks, up-to-date information on federal and state regulators, and other major financial institutions. Previous editions of this comprehensive reference book have been called “required reading for students, investors, and writers” by USA Today, “the best thing to hit business and finance since the ticker tape.” by the Rocky Mountain News, and “a teeming reservoir of information” by the Oakland Tribune. The brand-new eighth edition is bigger and better than ever, packed with indispensable information for planning and maintaining a healthy investment portfolio.

From the reviews

Answer: Start with Barron's Finance & Investment Handbook. Hardly a week goes by that I don't reach for this gem. For the individual investor, it's an absolutely essential guide...One chapter, 'How to Read an Annual Report,' shows you, in plain language, how to read and understand each section of a company's annual report, including the balance sheet and income statement. It also explains financial ratios and points out key things to look for. Related chapters show you how to read the financial pages of a newspaper. Another section offers plain-language definitions of thousands of financial terms..."
Neil Downing, Providence Journal, August 2000
