Investment analyst Lynn Gregory was used to taking risks. But even Lynn has her doubts when Matt, her best friend and roommate, asks her to participate in a charade to hide his sexuality from his parents. The plan seemed simple enough—Matt would introduce his friend Chris as his fiancé. All Lynn had to do was back up the story. The charade seems to be running smoothly as Chris, the straight woman persuaded to pose as Matt’s fiancé, plays her part well. But as the three are thrown closer and closer together, other tensions arise and Lynn is forced to decide if she is willing to make the riskiest investment of all, an investment in which she may lose her heart… Originally published by Bella Books 2005.

The book "Stocks and Exchange - the only Book you need" is intended for the general public from 11 to 85 years. Although the book is easily understandable, it describes in detail the parameters, which are ideal for safe and profitable investments in stocks or companies - whether short term or long term. When to sell or buy? This is technical and fundamental analysis at its finest. Which stocks can finance your pension with dividend payments? This book is the result of many years of practice and study of relevant literature. The book describes the strategies of the most famous investors and also my own experiences with stocks. Investment funds and pension insurance are discussed. The book contains a little information on business economics for investors and a lot of important information about the business on the stock exchange. The courses of three economic crises and crashes are investigated. The small lexicon explains 195 technical terms. There are some case studies about investors, companies and their stocks. Also described is the investment in gold, commodities and derivatives. Because the state expects ever more personal responsibility for your retirement arrangements, this book is also a very meaningful gift for your younger family members. Unfortunately there are only very few profound and above all honest books on shares thereby making this one all the more valuable.

Like the author of this book, the aardvark is big, slow and a bit ugly. He's not a big game hunter. He's not hunting for high-flying stocks the pundits love talking about on financial news shows. Instead, the aardvark eats the easily foraged food, like ants. What ants are to the aardvark, dividends are to his investment process. They are the easily foraged returns. The aardvark hunts at night, alone and unafraid. He's contrarian by nature and has his own unique phylum. There's no other animal quite like him. He has giant ears, which he keeps raised to be mindful of what might go wrong while he is foraging for dividends. He has big sharp claws, ideal for digging deep to uncover value. He works well into the night and is diligent in his search, seeking his own path, not following the herd on Wall Street.

A timely follow-up to the bestselling classic Dividends Don't Lie In 1988 Geraldine Weiss wrote the classic Dividends Don't Lie, which focused on the Dividend-Yield Theory as a method of producing consistent gains in the stock market. Today, the approach of using the dividend yield to identify values in blue chip stocks still outperforms most investment methods on a risk-adjusted basis. Written by Kelley Wright, Managing Editor of Investment Quality Trends, with a new Foreword by Geraldine Weiss, this book teaches a value-based strategy to investing, one that uses a stock's dividend yield as the primary measure of value. Rather than emphasize the price cycles of a stock, the company's products, market strategy or other factors, this guide stresses dividend-yield patterns. Details a straightforward system of investing in stick-to-quality blue-chip stocks with reliable dividend histories Discusses how to buy and sell when dividend yields instruct you to do so Investors looking for safety and transparency will quickly discover how dividends offer the yields they desire With Dividends Still Don't Lie, you'll gain the confidence to make sophisticated stock market decisions and obtain solid value for your investment dollars.

O’Rourke on the pathetic nature of our attempts to govern ourselves and laugh through your tears or—what the hell—just laugh. “Whether readers agree with O’Rourke’s politics or not, his style is funny, cutting, and insightful.” —Booklist “P.

In this revealing book Peggy Chiu argues against the common belief that maximizing wealth is the primary concern of ordinary small shareholders when they make their share-buying decisions. This fascinating in-depth study of small shareholders provides both theoretical and empirical insights into their personal values and attitudes to corporate social responsibility (CSR). The author establishes that personal values are a major influence on decisions about the type of investments people make and about which companies they choose to invest in. Financial risk and return are far from being the only factors that determine small shareholders' investment decisions - irresponsible behaviour is not acceptable and will not attract investment from this significant group. Looking Beyond Profit is an essential book, not just for encouraging investment managers to look more closely at their environmental impacts, but for finance advisers and all concerned with corporate governance, either as practitioners, researchers, business educators or students.

|Author||: Gary Klein|
The author takes his experience in academia, the military, and private industry and offers seminars on improving employee performance, defining improvement as a combination of fewer mistakes and more insightful decisions. Insights like Darwin's understanding of the way evolution actually works, and Watson and Crick's breakthrough discoveries about the structure of DNA can change the world. We also need insights into the everyday things that frustrate and confuse us so that we can more effectively solve problems and get things done. Yet we know very little about when, why, or how insights are formed or what blocks them. In Seeing What Others Don't, renowned cognitive psychologist Gary Klein unravels the mystery. Klein is a keen observer of people in their natural settings, scientists, businesspeople, firefighters, police officers, soldiers, family members, friends, himself, and uses a marvelous variety of stories to illuminate his research into what insights are and how they happen. Klein also dissects impediments to insight, such as when organizations claim to value employee creativity and to encourage breakthroughs but in reality block disruptive ideas and prioritize avoidance of mistakes. Or when information technology systems are “dumb by design” and block potential discoveries.

In this thoroughly researched classic, Randy Alcorn shows us how to view these things accuratelyas Gods provision for our good, the good of others, and his glory. Alcorn presents a biblical and comprehensive view of money and possessions, including the following: Why is money so important to God? Is prosperity theology right or wrong? How can we be liberated from materialism? What should we do about debt? How much does God want us to give? How can we best help the poor and reach the lost? What about gambling? Investing? Insurance? Saving? Retirement? Inheritance? How can we leave our children a true heritage? How can we use money in ways that God rewards? This practical and refreshing theology of money contains topical and Scripture indexes, a study guide, and five helpful appendices.
