Investments 2011 9th Edition

by Zvi Bodie Alex Kane Alan Marcus

Bodie, Kane, and Marcus? Investments sets the standard for graduate/MBA investments textbooks. It blends practical and theoretical coverage, while maintaining an appropriate rigor and a clear writing style. Its unifying theme is that security markets are nearly efficient, meaning that most securities are priced appropriately given their risk and return attributes. The text places greater emphasis on asset allocation and offers a much broader and deeper treatment of futures, options, and other derivative security markets than most investment texts. It is also the only graduate Investments text to offer an online homework management system, McGraw-Hill's Connect Finance.

Strong treatment of Excel.

These spreadsheets are also available on the book's web site and provide a taste of the sophisticated analytic tools available to professional investors.

The authors continue to present material in a framework that is organized by a central core of consistent fundamental principles. As such, they have stripped away unnecessary mathematical and technical detail to concentrate on providing the intuition to guide students and practitioners in their professional lives.

Considerable attention is paid to Modern Portfolio Theory, which focuses on the techniques and implications of efficient diversification for the proper measurement of risk and the risk-return relationship.

The text provides complete coverage of futures, options and other derivative security markets, acknowledging the importance of these markets to finance professionals and individual investors.

These features include a chapter opening vignette, numbered examples, key terms presented in boldface type with a listing at the end of each chapter and a glossary, and a chapter summary. Concept Checks are included in the body of the text, to help students reinforce and check their understanding of key concepts (solutions to concept checks are found at the end of each chapter).
