Investing in the stock market is risky business. Over the years, there have been numerous theorists and practitioners who have developed ways to try and beat the odds. They are convinced they have the answer, but the harsh reality is that the complexity and volatility of the market system means that it's virtually impossible for an investor to beat it entirely. While recognizing that no investment is guaranteed to be a success, Total Clarity provides the clarity every investor needs for success. With a detailed analysis of the four keys to successful investing, the meaning of true diversification, and the best practices for executing your investment strategies, author Lucien A. Stephenson provides an essential guide to understanding the instability of the markets - and how to use it in your favor. In the vein of The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham, Stocks for the Long Run by Jeremy Siegel, and Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits by Philip A. Fisher, this book helps you turn market unpredictability into an ally as you learn to better understand what you own and why you own it.
