SuperCash: The New Hedge Fund Capitalism - Book Review

SuperCash: The New Hedge Fund Capitalism (Wiley Trading)

What Is It About?

This book examines alternative approaches to success in the market. Looking at various techniques such as closed-end fund arbitrage, short-selling, and activism, the author explains to the reader how various strategies work and how an individual can mimic those strategies on a smaller scale. Well-written, the book is a quick read at just over 200 pages.

What Did I Get Out Of It As A New Investor?

The book introduces a new investor or trader to the allocation of assets using alternative investments. Using examples of 13D filings the author demonstrates how the new investor can profitably ride the coattails of professional activist investors. The author also takes the reader through a step by step explanation on how to implement a closed-end fund arbitrage strategy. Several other chapters walk the reader through various other strategies employed by hedge funds. Overall, the book did a good job helping me understand that there are many alternative avenues to investing success.

The Good News

A helpful book for a new investor or trader hoping to understand alternative classes of investing.

The Bad News

The author says don’t read his books.

The Bottom Line

An informative book that provides the new investor or trader with a basic understanding on how to implement alternative investing strategies.

Your blog is quite nice and informative.
As far as stock market is concerned. Trading in market requires
both time and Knowledge. Without these two factors its impossible to trade .
If you get recommendations from some specialist then also you must keep in mind its your money you
should invest it wisely. Its always advisable to get recommendations from analyst but again before investing you should do your research also.

We suggest you one thing never ever work on any rumour because rumours are spread to meet personal goals.

Stock market India is volatile and all those who speculate in market are loosing everyday. Please remember stock market is not for speculation purpose. If one feel investing in stock market is gamble then its better to think again.

One should always note that if they want to invest money they should do proper research be it fundamental research or technical research. Just think how come you can invest
your money without any convincing reason for the same?

Indian stock market is one of the most happening and emerging market. Major Indian stock exchanges are BSE and NSE and both are of world class standards.

So grab good stocks and invest that’s the bottom line.

We hope to see you in major profits.

I have a web site where I give advise on penny stocks and stocks under five dollars. I have many many years of experience with these type of stocks. If their is anyone that is interested in these type of stocks you can check out my web site by just clicking penny stocks. I would like to take a moment to talk about low price stocks not classic penny stocks or stocks under one dollar the term most people most often think of when the word penny stock is used. Their are companies of really decent quality trading under five dollars’ but for every one company trading under five dollars that is of decent quality their are maybe ten of poor quality. So the really big difference between those investors that are tremendously successfull when it comes to investing in low price stocks and those investors that lose enormous amounts of money investing in stocks under five dollars’ is having a great deal of knowledge and experience when it comes to low price stocks’ or having a total lack of knowledge and experience when it comes to low price stocks. Finding quality stocks under five dollars requires a lot more research than finding a decent stock above ten dollars.


Outstanding book review.
