The Art of Speculation
2012 Reprint of 1930 Edition. Exact facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Philip L. Carret (1896 - 1998) was a famed investor and founder of The Pioneer Fund (Fidelity Mutual Trust), one of the first Mutual Funds in the United States. A former Barron's reporter and WWI aviator, Carret launched the Mutual Trust in 1928 after managing money for his friends and family. The initial effort evolved into Pioneer Investments. He ran the fund for 55 years, during which an investment of $10,000 became $8 million. Warren Buffett said of him that he had "the best long term investment record of anyone I know" He is most famous for the long successful track record he achieved investing in Common Stocks and for being one of Warren Buffett's role models. These are a series of articles written for Barron's and published in book form in 1930.
Amazon.com Review
First published in 1930, The Art of Speculation by Philip Carret has long been praised for its perceptive examination of the various ways that speculation impacts the worlds of both business and financial trading. Now, almost seven decades later, a newly updated edition proves as instructive as ever on this and related investment topics such as short selling, government regulation, options, and arbitrage. Chapters on reading a balance sheet and an income statement remain classics.
