Publisher's Summary

With the stock market turning into a roller-coaster ride of all-time highs and stomach-churning lows, where does that leave your portfolio? Pretty much back where you started in 2000. Which may be fine for visitors to Six Flags, but for your retirement, savings, and investments, you’d like to actually get somewhere.

In The Little Book of Sideways Markets, respected value investor and author Vitaliy Katsenelson show you how to survive a stagnant market that’s neither bull nor bear but instead what he calls a cowardly lion—it displays occasional bursts of bravado but is ultimately overcome by fear.Katsenelson, known for the commonsense principles he has written frequently about in the Financial Times, Bloomberg, Businessweek and elsewhere, decodes the theories and cuts to the chase with practical and timely strategies for how you can survive and thrive during the sideways market—a state of affairs, by the way, we should expect for the next decade. He’ll show you:

  • Why your investments will stall in neutral and what to do about it
  • Why, despite its place as the Rodney Dangerfield of investing, you should treat mean reversion with respect
  • Why Tevye was a rich man—and what you can learn from his purchase of Golde, the cow
  • How the dire state of economic affairs in China and Japan will impact your investments, and what to do about it
  • The three crucial concepts of value investing—Quality, Growth, and Valuation•
  • How focus on process, boring as it may sound, leads to success
  • Why you should become a born-again value investor
  • How to break bad habits and find, buy and sell stocks in a sideways market

Making progress in a sideways market is difficult, but the lively and entertaining Little Book of Sideways Markets will help you triumph even when the market is stalled.

What the Critics Say

“It’s hard to talk clearly about investing and make sense to ordinary listeners at the same time. Katsenelson gives a lucid explanation of today’s markets with sound advice about how to make money while avoiding the traps that the market sets for exuberant bulls and frightened bears alike.” (Thomas G. Dolan, Barron’s)

    "Good Book, Solid Strategy, Fails in 1 Way"

    Thesis here is that markets are overvalued, stock index growth over next few years will be slow. Suggested strategy: "active value investing" - buy high quality growth stocks that are undervalued, then sell when the price rises to full value. Also, buy high quality growth stocks that pay a high dividend. Main shortcoming of book: no good method to tell when it's time to sell in the "active value investing" approach. But most books fail in this regard. Knowing when to sell is one of the toughest problems in active investing.

    I'm a lawyer and mediator. I represent businesses in disputes with their insurers and in other complex litigation. I also assist machinery companies and manufacturers (primarily international) with equipment sales, non-disclosure agreements, and business issues. I also mediate commercial disputes.

    "Good Advice"

    This book provides some excellent advice on dealing with choppy markets that seem to move within a band. Recommended.
