James Grant CPA MS, a practicing CPA, former registered investment advisor, investment educator, finance instructor, prior owner of a securities broker-dealer firm, writer, researcher and author, has completed his newest book “Avoiding Investment Blunders”: a self-help book to educate investors on how not to have a financial blunder.
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, James Grant’s informative work contains detailed guidance and occasional colorful examples of the author’s missteps and the mistakes of others.
There are two parts to the investment equation: (1) How to make money from investing and (2) how to avoid losing it. This book deals with the second objective.
Investors can prosper from small mistakes because they teach valuable lessons, but large mistakes (blunders) wipe out large amounts of capital and ruin lives. Blunders result in lost opportunities, children not going to college, or retirement being postponed or permanently abandoned. Severe losses can produce depression, failed marriages, and even suicide.
How do investors stumble into blunders? They are not prepared, and they are ill-informed. They invest in inappropriate investments, and their timing is bad. They listen to bad forecasts by economists, portfolio managers, CEOs, journalists, and security analysts. Just because an investment product exists does not mean it should be bought. Some investments like mortgage bonds and variable annuities are structurally flawed and too dangerous for average investors.
Blunders occur as a result of misleading statements by the media. They also occur due to scams. Investors are way too gullible and greedy. The investment landscape is treacherous, and it is important for investors to pay attention and employ healthy amounts of skepticism. Investors must employ less emotion and more reason. Investing is not a hobby!
There are many resources to guide investors on how to make money in investing, but there are few guides on how to avoid losing money. The information deficit in Avoiding Investment Blunders is significant. This book contains detailed guidance and occasional colorful examples of the author’s missteps and the mistakes of others.
Investment blunders are, therefore, financial disasters that must be avoided at all cost. Investment blunders usually only happen once per person per lifetime. This book will help ensure that blunders do not happen at all!
Readers who wish to experience this informative work can purchase “Avoiding Investment Blunders” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
