The Future for Investors: Why the Tried and the True Triumph Over the Bold and the New

Jeremy Siegel, one of the world's top investing experts, has taken a long, hard, and in-depth look at the market and the stocks that investors should acquire to build long-term wealth. His surprising finding is that the new technologies, expanding industries, and fast-growing countries that stockholders relentlessly seek in the market often lead to poor returns. In fact, growth itself can be an investment trap, luring investors into overpriced stocks and overly competitive industries.

Publisher's Summary

Jeremy Siegel, one of the world's top investing experts, has taken a long, hard, and in-depth look at the market and the stocks that investors should acquire to build long-term wealth. His surprising finding is that the new technologies, expanding industries, and fast-growing countries that stockholders relentlessly seek in the market often lead to poor returns. In fact, growth itself can be an investment trap, luring investors into overpriced stocks and overly competitive industries.

The Future for Investors shatters conventional wisdom and provides a framework for picking stocks that will be long-term winners. While technological innovation spurs economic growth, it has not been kind to investors. Instead, companies that have marketed tried-and-true products for decades in slow-growth or even declining industries have superior returns to firms that develop "the bold and the new". Industry sectors many regard as dinosaurs, railroads and oil companies, for example, have actually beat the market.

Professor Siegel presents these strategies within the context of the coming shift in global economic power and the demographic age wave that will sweep the United States, Europe, and Japan. Contrary to the popular belief that these economic and demographic trends doom investors to poor returns, Professor Siegel explains the True New Economy and how to take advantage of the coming surge in invention, discovery, and economic growth.

The faster the world changes, the more important it is for investors to heed the lessons of the past and find the tried-and-true companies that can help you beat the market and prosper in the years ahead.

    Must read/listen!

    "US Large Cap Value"

    The basic message of this book: US Large Cap Value stocks w. dividends are the investments to park money to create long-term wealth. The book supports why this is so and will continue to be so even as the Chinese economy grows AND the US economy levels off.

    "A little to harsh on growth"

    I did enjoy this book. Jeremy offered some good insights on why he believes the tried and true is better than the new. In many ways I agree with him. However he veers too far to the conservative in this book with his repetitive statements that investing in growth is not the way to profit. Growth stocks shouldn't be your entire portfolio, but nor should they be avoided in my opinion.

    Still, a decent book, even if he does tend to repeat things a bit.
