VHS : Beyond Wall Street -
The Art of Investing (4-Video Set)
starring: Jane Bryant Quinn Andrew Tobias
These eight programs (on four videotapes) from the PBS series Beyond Wall Street: The Art of Investing provide an engaging overview of investing strategies. Hosted by financial journalists Andrew Tobias and Jane Bryant Quinn, the programs generally involve a visit with one of the foremost practitioners of a particular investing approach. For instance, the first video features an interview with a notable growth investor, Foster Friess, and also an outstanding value investor, John Neff. The idea of finding someone who personifies the subject matter works well. Besides growth and value investing, other topics covered include picking stocks by crunching numbers, the value of index investing, the pros and cons of emerging markets, a primer on the bond market and fixed-income investing. These programs are hardly an inclusive course on investing, but any beginning investor would benefit from watching them, and even those who think they know their stuff can learn some of the finer points. more info...
