For some of us, the weather outside has been pretty frightful and with winter on the way, we don’t expect much better. So a few good investing books may be a welcome addition to those cold evenings. But even if you live in the Sun Belt, why not learn as you enjoy those rays the rest of us envy?
The SmallCap Informer newsletter has put together a reading list of books that’ll help you become a smarter investor, written by leading names in the field. Topping the list is Stocks for the Long Run: the Definitive Guide to Financial Market Returns & Long-Term Investment Strategies by Jeremy Siegel, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.
Other works include The Little Book That Still Beats the Market by Joel Greenblatt and The Investor’s Anthology by Charles Ellis and James Vertin, who quote writers ranging from Warren Buffett to Daniel Defoe. Yes, Mr. Defoe wrote Robinson Crusoe, but he was also an economic journalist, and wine and hosiery trader. Presumably Defoe’s advice didn’t shipwreck anyone’s investments.

News flash: You don’t need the Internet or an iPhone or Twitter or an online brokerage account to be a successful stock investor. Sure, they make the tasks of investing and researching stocks easier, or more convenient, or less expensive, but the basics of fundamental analysis are unchanged in several decades. We use the same principles in the SmallCap Informer that have served investors well for years.
You can learn more in the educational articles included in each issue of the SmallCap Informer, a new monthly small-cap newsletter publication from ICLUBcentral that presents profiles of small-cap stocks with excellent potential for long-term growth. Available in online and print editions.
