HASH(0x8e3e0144) étoiles sur 5 A pretty good book on corporate finance 2 février 2013
Par Abacus - Publié sur
Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Corporate finance is a vast subject as it overlaps with many technical areas including accounting, micro and macroeconomics, capital markets, and investment management. Your regular corporate finance textbook approaches 800 pages, weighs several pounds, and costs $150. Michael Taillard made an effort to render this vast subject accessible in an easy to read For Dummies format for about a tenth of the price of a regular textbook.

Overall, Taillard has succeeded in producing a body of knowledge on corporate finance accessible to the layperson. Of course, he had to cut some corners relative to a full-fledged textbook. For instance, chapter 13 on valuating derivatives is rudimentary. It purposefully avoids dealing with the Black Scholes option model and any of its advanced successors. This whole chapter entirely avoids the complex underlying mathematics with derivatives. And, that's a good thing. In other areas, Taillard covers well surprisingly theoretical concepts such as CAPM and APT.

Taillard covers a lot of topics elegantly and teaches numerous types of interesting ratios and metrics.

The small reservation I do have is I did find either errors or inconsistencies in some of his ratio presentations. For instance, he defines Net profit margin as Net income x 100/Sales instead of the usual Net income/Sales (pg.83). Yet on the next few pages, he will use the correct formulas for ROA, Operating income margin, and Gross profit margin (by avoiding the multiplying by a 100). On page 94, he defines a strange ratio: Equity Multiplier as the ratio of a company's assets that stockholders own. And, he calculates it as Assets/Equity. Meanwhile, if he wanted to calculate what he meant it should be: Equity/Assets. On page 96, he shows a definition of Financial Leverage that is plain wrong. Financial Leverage is typically defined as a Debt/Equity ratio that is balance sheet driven. His definition has nothing to do with this concept. Also, on page 105 he defines a ratio that is not meaningful for measuring the financial condition of a bank: Deposits/Capital. He views a bank's large deposit base as a risk because of potential runs on banks. However, with FDIC insurance the runs on banks have moved away from their deposit base to their wholesale borrowings (commercial paper). The recent financial crisis was associated with a liquidity crisis when the financial intermediaries could not roll over their commercial paper. By contrast, deposits (mostly insured) are a far safer source of funding for banks.

In summary, this is a good book on the subject despite the few errors I uncovered. If anyone wants to drill down a bit more on any technical subject, it is really easy to jump off from the book into Wikipedia.

After I got out of the Army, I used my GI Bill to get into NYU and graduated with a BS in Business Admin. Love it and had a great time, however, I decided to go into the brokerage business. I had a terrible time trying to assimilate into the industry.

I really wanted to appeal to corporate clients and not necessarily retail consumers. I really wish I had this booklet back then...I would would of jumped through so many hurdles so faster. Without a doubt, I would recommend this book to anyone in the finance industry, whether you are a licensed broker or financial adviser, this book will help you to understand the playing field much better and will also talk the talk with your future clientele.

Even if the sales aspect isn't for you (not going for your Series #7 or #63) this book will still help you grasp the fundamentals of the structures of a corporate climate. It's really a wealth of information if you are looking to get into the field or a major head-start if you are in school.
What I really like about the book the most is that it just has a down-to-earth (no nonsense) feel to the layout AND it supplies you with a ton of links and other sources that will take you a bit further.

Well, I hope that I helped you with my evaluation. Whether you choose this book or not, I really wish you well.

HASH(0x8e3e0f54) étoiles sur 5 Author's credentials, attitude to reader and complicated passages make me wonder who this book is aimed at. 26 janvier 2013
Par Steve Ramm - Publié sur
Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Most of my reviews on Amazon are for "entertainment related" items but - as a CPA and a CFO - I certainly understand finance books. This particular title was sent to me by Amazon as part of their "Vine Reviewer" program in which they send selected books to a selected group of reviewers.
The "Dummies" series has sure grown since 1991 when Dan Gookin authored "DOS for Dummies". There are now over 1800 (!) "... for Dummies" titles.

I've used - and reviewed - quite a few of these book - especially business related and accounting volumes. I have to say - frankly - that this is the weakest one I've read yet. I'll try to explain why so you will understand my reasons.

First, the author, Michael Taillard, has a Pd.D. and MBA in international economic. He is neither an accountant nor a domestic finance person. But I'll give him the doubt. In his "Introduction" he says - really - that he assumes you know nothing. Not just finance; nothing! (Look on page 2.. I quoted him!) He says more than once, that a section is "what you'd expect from any other book, only better". (Again, I'm quoting him!) So there is an attitude factor here that really turned me off. He then goes on to say that the book is really "simple" and you only need to know "simple math". His example is "6+?=10". Okay, if it's that's simple, let me quote a sentence from page 214 (the book has 336 pages). The section is titled "Slicing securities into tranches". Here is the first sentence: "Financial engineering has taken securitization even further, dividing individual securities into classes, called tranches, of investments that have varying repayment periods". Got that? Understand that? Then the book may be helpful to you. I'm not sure who he is aiming book at. He says at beginning that reading the book may help you decide if Corporate Finance is for you. (Huh?). He then talks about borrowing money to start a business and THEN talks about reading financial statements. There's a section on how to buy corporate bonds. It's literally all over the place. One thing I found interesting is that back cover touts things you will learn here. The first is: "The difference between finance and accounting". I figured that would be a chapter heading (it isn't) or at least a section in the index in the back (not there, sorry). In fact I couldn't find out what HE thinks the difference is. He does - by the way - refer you to a book on" Accounting for Dummies", and it is probably one of the ones I favorably reviewed.

So, as one other review said, there are definitions of "corporate finance" terms here but not enough to recommend it.

Oh yes, I just looked on the back and other things he says you will learn are "Things you need to know to understand international finance" and "your best bond bets". So, who is this book aimed at? Got me. Even with 45 years of accounting and finance experience I was, honestly, lost in trying to make sense of this book.

Note this is the first edition of the book. I wonder if it will make it to a second edition.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

One of the nicest things I've learned about the "Dummies" series, is that they assume you aren't an idiot, but understand that you would prefer an outline of whatever topic you are interested in to be presented in an easy-to-understand manner. Dense texts or polysyllabic words aren't appreciated when you are beginning to delve into a topic. Mathematical models will set some people into a panic, but simplifying formulae in this book will be appreciated by many. For example when taking a look at something like the cost performance (CP) ratio and the way it's measured CP = EV/AC; a simplified explanation follows. "This ratio measures the earned value at a given point to the actual cost (AD) at that point." The basic concepts of corporate finance can be daunting, but doable if you read this book.

Reading the book from cover to cover will give you a greater understanding of corporate finance, but the work is not linear. You can pick and choose to read any portion of the book, provided you do have a minimal understanding of what corporate finance is. One recommended book, Accounting for Dummies by John Tracy, is one you may wish to add to your list as the material is complementary and overlapping. Both of the books would be excellent supplementary material if you are preparing to take coursework in either the field of finance or accounting.

Interspersed throughout the book is a series of icons. They includes tips, things you need to remember, they offer up cautionary notes, and an occasional case study to ponder. There are informative sidebars, tables, and, of course, each part is prefaced by Rich Tennant's inimitable cartoons. Examples of sidebars include ones one financial engineering, the Compaq/HP merger, and "Getting Warren Buffett's take." In the back of the book is a thorough index, something I always appreciate when looking at a reference.

At first, I thought that corporate finance was an odd subject for the For Dummies series because it is more of an advanced business topic rather than primarily a topic of personal interest and not suited for self-education. However, this book does cover the general breadth of corporate finance if not the advanced details of every possible subject and it does so in a very accessible way.

The format is the same as the other For Dummies books and even though some of the topics are fairly sophisticated, everything is explained in simple terms and context and importance are provided as well. The table of contents acts as an outline of the subject and there is an index although anyone familiar with the format should be able to locate the information they need without it.

This would not function as a reference book for CFOs but it is a good introduction or review, especially for inexperienced or role-switching managers and executive and even for investors. Obviously Corporate Finance for Dummies will not be as popular as Windows 8 for Dummies or even Raising Chickens for Dummies but it certainly fills a niche.
