Updated to reflect the current investment climate, this large reference volume presents a financial dictionary with definitions of more than 5,000 terms, an analysis of many current investment opportunities, guidelines for non-experts on what to look for when reading corporate reports and financial news sources, an up-to-date directory of hundreds of publicly traded corporations in the United States and Canada, and a directory listing the names and addresses of brokerage houses, mutual funds families, banks, federal and state regulators, and other major financial institutions. A previous edition of this fact-filled reference book was called "required reading for students, investors, and writers" by USA Today. The brand-new eighth edition is bigger and better than ever.
