Professor DeGennaro uses simple analogies to explain the origin of stocks and other securities, as well as their relative risks. He stresses the danger of trying to beat the market by trying to pick winners, predict price trends, or otherwise find opportunities that other investors have missed. Far better, he counsels, to own a well-diversified portfolio of individual stocks or stock funds, which tend to grow as the economy grows. He offers detailed guidance on how to pursue this course. Among the topics covered in these 18 lectures are how to open a brokerage account and choose a financial advisor; the essentials of mutual funds, including index funds, and exchange traded funds (ETFs); how to trade individual stocks, including how to use options; the relative advantages of traditional IRAs, Roth IRAs, and 401(k) plans; how to minimize transaction costs and use tax laws for your benefit; the dangers of frequent trading; and the basics of corporate balance sheets, income statements, and cash flow statements. For anyone who owns stocks or is thinking of entering the market, this course provides indispensable advice. If you entrust the management of your assets to a financial advisor, this course will give you the background you need to communicate more knowledgeably with him or her and be an informed participant in your own financial well-being.

    This was my first experience with "The Great Courses" lectures. It is an excellent primer and if all of the lectures are as useful and as informative as this one, I'll be looking to give another topic a try the next time Audible discounts them. I hear the linguistics course are very well done so that will likely me my next foray into these lectures.

    I lost focus while listening on audio. Finances do not excite me; hence, the need to learn more. My review really isn't a reflection on the course. I just have to learn to concentrate when numbers are involved. *Sigh*

V případě vzdělávacích programů z produkce The Great Courses je oním slepým střevem audiokniha se slibným názvem How the Stock Market Works (Jak funguje akciový trh), jejímž autorem je profesor bankovnictví a financí na univerzitě v Tennessee Ramon DeGennaro.

V případě vzdělávacích programů z produkce The Great Courses​ je oním slepým střevem audiokniha se slibným názvem How the Stock Market Works (Jak funguje akciový trh), jejímž autorem je profesor bankovnictví a financí na univerzitě v Tennessee Ramon DeGennaro. Titul se překvapivě netýká tržních základů, ale jedné nejasné investiční strategie, kterou přednášející odvozuje z kontroverzní teorie efektivních trhů. Ta předpokládá, že všechny akciové tituly jsou vždy správně, racionálně a férově oceněny na základě dostupných informací, což, jak praxe ukazuje, není tak úplně pravda. Název tedy slibuje objektivní popis fungování akciového trhu, ale skutečnou náplní je silně předpojatý úvod do investování. Sám autor dokonce otevřeně přiznává, že je víc profesor než investor, proto je škoda, že nezůstal u toho, čemu evidentně rozumí, a to je vysvětlení fundamentální teorie, od vztahu akcie ke jmění společnosti, po IPO emise a makroekonomické vlivy. Nepochybuji, že právě takové bylo zadání producentů Great Courses a nejspíš nečekali, že DeGennaro dá největší prostor vlastní agendě. Pokud dokážete při čtení odfiltrovat jeho investiční rady, pak lze tuto audioknihu snad i doporučit, těch zbylých 50 % obsahu jistou hodnotu má.

    At some point he has the audacity to say that the tribes that 'sold' Manhattan for 24 dollars didn't got such a bad deal... If they had invested the money for 400 years, they would have be well off. He makes the moronic assumption that the Native American between being massacred and ripped from their lands would had made some time to setup a CD or Money Market they would had been better off.

    Great overview of stock investing, covering pretty all the basics, including why it's so hard to beat the market consistently and how to minimize taxes. Should be understandable by most listeners. Only criticism, whether it's fair or not, is that I didn't learn as much as I thought I might, as I've learned most of the information elsewhere, but maybe my expectations were a bit too high.

    A solid overview for beginners. Doesn't go into a lot of depth on any particular sub-topic, but covers a broad spectrum of stock market strategies, influences and terminology. I'd recommend it for someone new to the market. It's not CNBC-style charts and talking point, but rather the ideas behind those charts and talking points. It covers types of investments, the role of the larger economy in stock market movements, valuation and more. It's a good launching point.

I listened at about 1.5 times speed, sometimes faster, sometimes a wee bit slower.

    Pretty entertaining and insightful. This course comprehensively covers what the stock market is and how it works. It goes over some of its history and high profile legal cases. By nature it covers how the treasury works and influences the market. It provides investing strategies and use cases. Several additional sites containing information were provided.

    introduction to basic principles and ways of thinking about the stock market. I personally enjoyed it and if you are thinking of starting to invest perhaps taking in the information in this course/book is a good start.

    Very good overview. This could be much better to listen while not driving, but even driving I got a lot out of it.

    This was a relatively straightforward guide to investing in the stock market for individuals, rather than as a professional. It was well laid out, and everything was relatively easy to understand. While listening, I realized that I knew a lot of these things already, though in many cases, I couldn't quite remember where I had learned them, but a lot of this was stuff I had already learned. While I knew much of this already, it did tie this subject into my general knowledge and give me the confid This was a relatively straightforward guide to investing in the stock market for individuals, rather than as a professional.

While I knew much of this already, it did tie this subject into my general knowledge and give me the confidence that much of what I have learned elsewhere can be applied to economics, as well. Overall, this is sensible economic advice for people who have sufficient savings to invest in the stock market, though there is an ideological bias that the author doesn't mention (he is most likely blind to it).

    This was a pretty good introduction to the stock market and investing. It scope was comprehensive and the depth was about right for the a person that was considering getting into investing. Professor DeGennaro assumes the audience knows next to nothing about the stocks, bonds, how to buy stock, financial advisors, etc. Because of this, the lecture can be a little elementary when a new topic is introduced. However this approach makes sense for an introductory course. Overall I thought the scope a This was a pretty good introduction to the stock market and investing.

    Great introduction to personal investment in the stock market. I would describe this as wide ranging in scope and basic fundamentals. In addition to personal investment in the stock market for your average middle class person, the lectures touch on basics of IPOs, macroeconomics and investment banking. The material is a little bit boring, but hey, what are you going to do.

    These lectures are interesting to those who do no not have prior knowledge in this field. DeGennaro simplified everything from how to deal to which brokerage to hire. Simple and interesting.
