Description de l'ouvrage

1 novembre 2013

Junheng Li was the perfect Chinese tiger daughter, but from childhood on, she dreamed about America and working on Wall Street. Born in Shanghai, the commercial and financial center of mainland China, Li was brought up in an environment that would raise most Westerners' eyebrows. Her demanding father drilled her on her multiplication tables when she was three, and in school she was forced tomemorize facts and regurgitate them perfectly on tests. Success at all costs was the mantra. When she arrived at Middlebury College in Vermont after studying round the clock for months to learn the English language, sheentered a completely different world, where values and morality were taught, individualism reigned, and analytical thinking was encouraged.

Tiger Woman on Wall Street is both the remarkable, dramatic story of one woman's rise in the global business world and a savvy guide to finance and investing. With unflinching candor, Junheng Li tells how a brainy, focused, highly driven Chinese girl who admiredScarlett O'Hara's indomitable spirit drew on the best of both worlds to go where few women have gone before: straight to the top of the financial industry.

Tiger Woman on Wall Street takes you behind the scenes of the world's most important financial markets, from the daily routine of trading to high-level meetings with executives, policy makers, and analysts. Li conveysin fascinating and revealing detail how she arrives at her investing decisions--a powerful combination of keen intuition, meticulous due diligence, and razor-sharp analysis. Li argues that the current Chinese business growth model has hit a wall and shows why investors need to keep both eyes firmly open when investing--especially in China.

By reading this book, you will learn how one of today's most successful China analysts smells a questionable investment a mile away, predicts industry trends, forecasts stock price movements, and develops investmentideas--both long and short--using techniques ranging from scrutinizing data to posing as an average customer in order to examine firsthand a company's latest product. You will also meet colorful characters such as Knucklehedgie,an American hedge fund manager who invests in Chinese companies based on brokers' bragging, and a Chinese executive who takes conference calls with investors while at nightclubs and who made his fortune by selling fraudulent Chinese companies to global investors.

Striking a rare balance between page-turning storytelling and practical investing guide, Tiger Woman on Wall Street shows how one woman has navigated her way through and thrived in this increasingly complicated and exciting period in modern financial history.

Praise for Tiger Woman on Wall Street

"Junheng Li is one of the most astute market analysts I have met in my long career. Her healthy skepticism of China's inevitable rise to economic and market supremacy is refreshing, and her razor-sharp analysis of Chineseequities is as compelling as the story of her own journey from the streets of Shanghai to Wall Street." -- Ron Insana, CNBC contributor

"Tiger Woman on Wall Street is a fascinating read on a subject that couldn't be more timely. A must-read for Western (and Chinese) investors and businesspeopleinterested in China." -- Jim Chanos, President/Founder, Kynikos Associates

"We can all learn a lot about finance and investing from Tiger Woman on Wall Street. Through brains, honesty, and grit, Li has thrived on Wall Street by applying the investigative and analytical skills she learned in China, and this terrific book shows how she did it." -- Karen Finerman, Cofounder and President of Metropolitan Capital Advisers and author of Finerman's Rules

"While alpha males have long dominated Wall Street, now comes a Tiger Woman who may very well eat their lunch in the ultracompetitive world of stock market research. This book tells her extraordinary story and many ofher investing secrets." -- Minggao Shen, Chief Economist for Greater China, Citigroup

"A profound exploration of the heart and mind of modern-day China. With passionate and penetrating prose, Junheng Li expertly uses her remarkable personal story to illuminate the complexities of China's great economic opportunities--and even greater risks." -- Deborah Davis, bestselling author of Strapless, Gilded, and Party of the Century

"There is no question that Junheng Li is an incisive analyst with a unique perspective on some of the defining international and market issues of our times. Tiger Woman on Wall Street demonstrates this in every chapter. But what is especially remarkable is how she uses her own compelling personal story to both add a human dimension to those issues that brings them to life and adds credence to her reliably sound market insights. She is allergic to hype and superficiality. Her own experiences explain why, and serve to offer refreshingly fact-based and granular perspectives on the sweeping, inspiring, and often misleading stories and myths surrounding China's rapid ascent." -- David Rothkopf, CEO and editor-at-large, Foreign Policy magazine; author of Superclass and Power, Inc.

"This very readable book adds a lot of color to what has been a widely misunderstood process in China. By telling her story as an investor, Junheng Li shows in concrete detail how the financial system in China is currently structured in such a way that capital misallocation is not only possible, but indeed is highly likely. Through her own story, Li also shows that under the right conditions, the Chinese people have the courage and determination to take their country to great heights.”" -- Michael Pettis, Professor of Finance, Guanghua School of Management, Peking University, Beijing"

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must read for all people in emerging markets 19 janvier 2014
Par Sunil Kulkarni - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
A very compelling read indeed. Many similarities with old-new China & India & in my context I could visualize where India would be in next few years & what problems would arise.

Your personal tale & connecting it with your professional work gives diverse perspectives. The struggles of yours are highly motivational.

With 2 kids and having moved them recently from Japan (IB schooling) to India (local schooling), we as parents are struggling as to which route to take - and your last chapter actually convinced me to choose something that we believed.

Lastly you have explained some financial concepts very simply and overall kept the tone of the book practical(not advisory).

I think this book should be localized in various languages -especially in emerging markets. It is like listening to somebody who has seen the future while still having the time to act on it.

Absolutely a great read and wish all the best.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent read. Concise, right to the point. Recommended. 25 novembre 2013
Par Brenda Freeman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This book is really good. Not only does Junheng Li give a run down of how she invests, but she uses a sensible approach while investing. She examines how to analyze a company, its operations, its financial statements and various other important factors when making an investment decision. This book is an important one that I will recommend.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Winner Takes All ... 9 avril 2014
Par Robert J - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Junheng Li weaves an acutely observed, unsentimental yet poignant narrative
of her journey growing up in the aftermath of China's Cultural Revolution, thriving
in its cutthroat educational regime, then graduating at the top of
her class at Middlebury College and decamping to Wall Street to ultimately
compete successfully with some of the world's leading hedge funds.

Along the way, you'll find yourself charmed by her return visit to Grandma
Yangyang, amused by her savvy observations on China's "Mistress Economy" and
its implications for the world's leading luxury marques and nodding your
head throughout at the woefully compromised labors of many denizens of Wall
Street agencies.

Knowledge is power and Ms. Li lays out her strategies to elicit "tells" from
CEOs and ferret out anomalies from obscure datasets you won't find anytime
soon on Bloomberg. If you seek alpha in emerging markets - or your own
backyard for that matter, Ms. Li's disciplined and relentless application of clever and
near-forensic analysis makes this a must read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Richly Personal and Highly Informative Investment Insights 9 janvier 2014
Par Dr Conrade Yap - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This is an amazing biography and personal story of how Junheng Li struggled through the setbacks of China's Cultural Revolution in the 60s, brought up under a strict father, fought through multiple challenges in her growing up years, came to America to study, to work, and subsequently to make a huge impact on the investment industry, especially in the area of providing deeper insights about American strategies and Chinese peculiarities in social, political, economic, and other tangible relationships. Richly personal and highly informative, Li (known in the book as Junh) shares her journey from China to America, and how she gleans the best of Chinese discipline and diligent, and the American way of freedom and democracy. Positioning herself as a Wall Street strategist and investment analyst with feet on both Western and Eastern awareness, Li aims to use her own story to help business people (especially from the West) to do business in China.

Li brings to us an up-front-and-personal view of Wall Street and its day to day dealings, as well as an insightful and shrewd take on Shanghai and the culture in China. She highlights her early years of how her family survived China's modern but cruel "Cultural Revolution." She shares the roots of her tenacity that was developed since young, like having to up her TOEFL scores from 480 to 600 in three months. She reveals how her questioning of the norm sharpens her acumen for short-selling opportunities. At the same time, she candidly writes about her boo-boos such as her dozing off when an important client was speaking as well as her failed marriage. Even her company, Aurarian, a small investment firm had to call it quits at the height of the 2009 financial crisis. Most fascinating of it all was her ability to understand the American mentality and ethical upbringing from a mainline Chinese point of view. She knows that there are many who are eager to invest in China. Yet, many of these investors are unable to understand the complexity of the Chinese markets. According to Li, the American model is one that assumes the market is "efficient" and many have unwittingly assumed that the Chinese market is similar. Li seeks to debunk this mistaken belief, arguing that when investing in China, it is critical for investors to know who and what they are investing in. By setting up her own firm (JL Warren), she has positioned herself as the expert in Sino-US investment analyses.

So What?
========
Reading through the various investment snippets gives me an opportunity to refresh my own knowledge about investment, like short selling and long positions; hedge funds and IPOs; company management and stock health; and others. Li writes in such a compelling and honest manner that readers can feel as if they are there with Li. The captivating stories make for a very educational as well as entertaining read. That said, I do have some reservations about some of the conclusions Li had made. First, I think Li may have tried to make things far too black and white, like claiming the Chinese's upbringing is more "shame-based" while the Western model is more "guilt-based"; or Chinese system as "knowledge based" compared to the American system of "idea based." My question is "To what extent is this true? What about those who grow up with mixed parenting?"

Perhaps, as a mainline Chinese working and living the American Dream, Li has that uncanny ability to discern the differences much more than others. However, with rising immigration and globalization, plus inter-marriages and the the merging of cultures, the investment climate is getting more grey and complex. Second, this book is Li's personal story about her journey in the investment angle. Readers need to be careful not to extrapolate too much into the other parts of society, such as politics, social norms, or other cultural idiosyncrasies. There are a lot of things that readers can adopt in terms of questioning the herd mentality and the lack of discernment when investing in an unknown firm. At the same time, it is good to remember that it is just one view. It is not the only view. In a complex environment, there is no one-size-fits-all methodology. Third, the success of any venture is not solely an individual matter. We need communities of discernment. Even Li herself admits seeking out advice from older and more experienced individuals such as her previous mentor, Jason, and business friends like Peter Winn. In a hard-hitting world of business amid a very unforgiving Wall Street attitude toward losses, we all need friends and to learn to see life not just from a money or profits point of view. Seeing that Li's reputation as a "Tiger Woman on Wall Street" has also come at a steep personal price, it is a reminder for me that life is not just about making money or breeding successful endeavours one after another. There will come a time in which the more important things in life will become more significant.

Toward the end of the book, Li becomes more reconciliatry in her outlook of both the American and the Chinese cultures. The "discipline and perseverance" she learned from her Chinese parents and the "integrity and curiosity" she adopted from her American way of life has made her more equipped to deal with both. Keen readers will realize that Li is advocating for change for both sides, for diligence from all, to work together and to flourish together.

I warmly recommend this book for anyone interested in investment, especially those keen to learn and understand more about investing in companies with a Chinese background. Great read!

Rating: 4.75 stars of 5.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 book could have been more analytical 18 décembre 2013
Par RH - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The book is an extremely well written chronicle of the authors life from childhood to the present. She chronicles her childhood and educational upbringing in fascinating detail with the impact of being bought under a strict disciplinarian particularly disturbing.

Though she expounds on her discipline , hard work ethic and ability to overcome many obstacles the book drifts towards an empty rhetoric on the assessment of the financial risks on china. It is thin on details, empty on detailed assessments and rehashes details that is already been chronicled elsewhere in the news.

Other reviews hyped the book as a substantive read on the financial risks associated with china and the book is empty on that score. Would not recommend buying the book if you want to really understand how to assess the risks in china.however it is worth reading if you want to get an insight into life and growing up in contemporary china
