Using a 'novel approach', Susan Laubach painlessly and engagingly explains the basics of investing through the story of Missy Kitt. An investment novice, Kitt lands a job at an over-the-hill brokerage firm headed by the somewhat stodgy Mr Caboodle. As Kitt learns the basics of investing from the inside, you will absorb useful concepts such as the Ten Commandments for Investing and the Four-Season Portfolio Plan. Includes investing worksheets. A successful portfolio manager and 15-year veteran of a major brokerage firm, Laubach teaches investment basics to groups and individuals across the USA.
