-Everybody's Guide to Money Matters | by William Cotton
The Author, emboldened by a Banking experience of over forty years, offers this little work to the public in the hope that, elementary though it be, it may prove acceptable to many persons of both sexes. The work has been prepared chiefly for the use of women, a vast proportion of whom are brought up in utter ignorance of money matters in the simplest form, though otherwise they may be highly accomplished. The subject, it must be allowed, is not a fascinating one, but there are periods in the lives of most persons when some knowledge of money matters may be useful and even necessary.
-Money And Investments | by Montgomery Rollins
A reference book for the use of those desiring information in the handling of money or the investment thereof
-How To Speculate In Mines | By Walter W. Wall
Being an exposition of the principles of investment and speculation, with descriptions of mine-developments and principal gold fields and a glossary of mining terms.
-Why Bonds Are Safe Investments | By Harris Trust & Savings Bank
The average person perhaps does not realize to what an extent he is now indirectly investing in bonds, and enjoying the advantages which bonds have made possible. The insurance company in which he, his family or his property is insured invests its funds largely in bonds. So very likely to a considerable degree does the bank in which he deposits his money. The school where he sends his children has probably been built from the proceeds of a bond issue, as have many of the other public improvements of his community, the local electric light plant, the waterworks, the railroads which developed the country nearby, the trolley lines on which he rides, etc. Many of the greatest conveniences of the present day would have been impossible if bonds had not been considered safe investments by a very large number of people. It is the purpose of this pamphlet to explain the elements of safety which have made this class of securities so popular with careful investors.
-Enduring Investments | By Roger W. Babson
This little book is made up largely from notes which the writer jotted down from time to time after experiences of one sort or another. Some of the paragraphs are purely memoranda which he wrote at different periods for his own guidance, - in the form of a diary. Therefore, the reader can pardon the preaching appearance of the book by remembering that the author is preaching to himself.
-Investment And Speculation By Louis Guenther
Investment and speculation are closely associated with each other and with the well-being of trade. They are the propelling forces governing the money market, which in turn is the vital life-blood of business. Every head of a corporation, every business man who holds a responsible position and upon whose judgment the success of an enterprise largely depends, should provide himself with a general knowledge of the problem of investment and speculation.
-Stock Exchange Securities And How To Select Them | By Niel Ballingal Gunn
The company offers to its clients these principal attractions - absolute safety, premiums lower than in the majority of offices, large bonuses, and liberal policy conditions. The management is marked by a happy combination of push and care which promises a continuance of the prosperity the company now enjoys." - The Joint Stock Companies Journal.
-The Investor's Catechism | By Marc M. Reynolds
Few people outside of professional financiers understand the investment of money. Investment is a business which demands constant application and an analytical study of all classes of securities, together with the local, national and international conditions which affect the world's markets.
-The Investor's Primer | By John Moody
There has long been a demand for a concise handbook which would give, in simple, understandable language, definitions of all the important terms and phrases employed in the investment and banking business. This little book represents an effort to in some measure supply this demand. The book is really in two parts, the first part covering the general definitions of finance; the second giving specific information regarding the various issues of preferred and guaranteed stocks which are generally classed among the investment issues. Many other small books furnish information regarding bonds, quotations, etc., etc., but this specific and useful information has not, as far as the writer knows, been heretofore presented for popular uses, in this particular way. Although the definitions are all arranged alphabetically in dictionary style, yet, to facilitate practical use of the volume, an alphabetical index is inserted in the back.
-The First Principles Of Investment | by J. Beattie Crozier
The distinguished political economists, English and foreign, who, in The Financial Review of Reviews, have taken part in the discussion of the question of the "Geographical Distribution of Capital" have, with the single exception perhaps of Mr. Hobson, been adherents of the Old Political Economy of the Schools, and have taken not only their method of approach but the point of view which they have brought with them to the discussion, from its distinctive and peculiar teachings.
-A Plain Guide To Investment And Finance | by Lawrence R. Dicksee
The object of this book is simple and direct. All people need to invest their savings from time to time. They are not in the way of knowing, from professional experience in finance, what securities are best worthy of attention at certain periods; and what should be avoided, and why. Most probably they have not available the skilled advice of competent persons; and they themselves possess but a moderate and merely general knowledge of what forms a sound investment 1 in spite of fluctuations of values, and of partial or extensive panics, or in what manner its soundness or inferiority should be discriminated.
-How To Get Ahead - Saving Money And Making It Work | By Albert W. Atwood
There are some men who save because of fear of what the future may hold in store. However, this class does not achieve the greatest success. Strong men, confident of their own abilities, prepare for opportunities as well as emergencies. They save to win.
