Security Analysis on Wall Street Summary

Security Analysis on Wall Street: A Comprehensive Guide to Today's Valuation Methods by Jeffrey C. Hooke

A dynamic real-world approach to security analysis. For more than 65 years, Graham and Dodd's Security Analysis has been the number-one guide on the subject. Offering an up-to-the-minute, real-world view of security analysis as it is currently practiced, this book picks up where Graham and Dodd leave off. Jeffrey Hooke describes the four major valuation techniques now in use, emphasizing the differences between academic abstraction and the nitty-gritty of actual securities trading. He also provides detailed coverage of special situations such as distressed securities, unusual industries, and foreign securities. Jeffrey C. Hooke (Potomac, Maryland) is a corporate financial consultant. Formerly an investment executive for the International Finance Corporation, he also spent ten years with Lehman Brothers and Schroder Wertheim. He is an adjunct professor at the University of Maryland School of Business.

"Mr. Hooke does an admirable job of stripping away the wrapping paper to reveal the fundamentals of analyzing companies and their stocks and bonds that are traded in the public marketplace." --Samuel L. Hayes III, Jacob H. Schiff Professor of Investment Banking, Harvard University Graduate School of Business Administration "Jeffrey Hooke has provided a comprehensive and readable explanation of the issues involved in determining company valuations.

"One of the toughest issues facing an investment professional is valuation. Jeff Hooke in his book Security Analysis on Wall Street deals with this issue in a comprehensive manner by providing not only a framework to evaluate the dynamics that determine value, but also tools that can be put to practical use. I consider this book a serious contribution to the art of valuation." --George Konomos, Investment Manager Cambridge Capital Fund, L.P.
