This newer edition is soft covered, 8 1/2" x 10.8" x 1.7" THICK. After 31 pages of very informative introduction, each of Standard & Poor's 500 stocks are spanned in detailed description across two full pages. That accounts for 1,000 pages plus the 31-page intro, or 1,031 pages of data. Nothing escapes the attention of the publisher. It is all here.
Stock performance is shown for the past twelve months together with an projected estimate of earnings and a stock target-price. An overview of each corporation; its core business (sometimes broken into national and international sales segments), balance sheet, cash flow, and per share data for the last ten years, including dividend payments. Standard & Poor's stock rating is shown; one star through five stars. And Standard & Poor's is not shy about explaining its investment rationale, sometimes covering four or five paragraphs.
Standard & Poor's 500 Stock Index is among the most watched averages on Wall Street and can be used by investors to mark the overall market situation as well as to compare ones personal investments.
However, as time wears on, the data becomes history and discovering fresh data is left to the investor. Standard & Poor's provides a phone number, offering up-to-date stock reports that can be purchased at a nominal price. After a few months, I took S&P up on updates and discovered updated information--updated to the day--an additional value.
Albeit, the listings in this edition are limited to the 500 stocks of the Standard & Poor's Stock Index, but when I think about it, "How many stocks does a personal portfolio require?"
I definitely recommend this book as a must for serious investors--beginners and old timers alike.
The Standard and Poor's 500 Guide provides a lot of information that is very reminiscent of the "Shikiho". I felt vaguely nostalgic flipping through the company explanations and financial summaries, reviewing the year to year performance of the stock price, P&L summary statements, earnings, dividend statements, and all the rest . The information contained in this book is very thorough and useful to a point. In this day and age, however, the Internet provides a number of resources to get more reliable and up to date information that would probably be of more value to most investors. Although it does provide buy, sell and hold recommendations, because this is Standard and Poor's book of all 500 companies contained in their exchange, it does not offer much in the way of in depth analysis, but as a source of raw data for performing your own analysis, it is invaluable. You'll just need to be prepared to provide your own investment strategy.
I'm very glad the publisher provided me a copy of this book gratis for this review, but I would say, the information contained is well worth the retail price. I rate this book as a "buy".
Why not a five-star? Every year, it contains incorrect data that goes unfixed. No excuse for this. Reuter Thomsen (at MSN Money) and Gurufocus, my other main sources of historical data, do not let this happen. Even hiring students to spot-check will do it.
