Summary
The most common investor mistakes -- and how you can avoid them! -- Lessons from the spectacular failures of the world's most prominent investors! -- Practical techniques for avoiding overconfidence, hubris, greed, shortsightedness, and other investment blunders. Every investor -- even the world's most prominent and respected investors -- are subject to the foibles of human psychology. Now, John Nofsinger, identifies the most common investor mistakes through the prism of the world's most public investment catastrophes. Using other people's money and other people's disasters, Investment Blunders teaches a wide range of critical lessons every investor must learn. John Nofsinger shows how to avoid the overconfidence displayed by John Meriwether and David Mullins, and by Nobel laureates Myron Scholes and Robert Merton, the founders of the failed Long Term Capital Management hedge fund. He demonstrates how to avoid the hubris that nearly destroyed KKR in its bidding war over RJR Nabisco; how to identify and control the greed that sank Michael Milken and many of his contemporaries; and how to keep sight of the fundamentals, avoiding the disastrous investments that led to the 1980s' S & L crisis. Read each Blunder, and you will learn of a common error that you can avoid in the future
