The world of investment is fascinating and, at the same time, enigmatic. The investor’s behaviour the world over had oscillated between panic and enthusiasm, guided by the psychological forces of fear and greed. What investment should be held? When should an investment be bought? How long an investment should be held? When is the right time to dispose an investment? How can a profit be made through investments? There is no magic mantra that assures investors on these issues. Only knowledgeable investors can minimize investment-related risks through systematic planning and efficient and effective management of their investments. Investment Analysis and Portfolio Management helps you gain that knowlegde. It will be useful to academicians and practitioners and offers a scientific approach to investment management, comprehensive coverage of theory, tools, and techniques of investments, a focus on stock market instruments and is richly illustrated to help understand methods of processing investment information.
