Expectations Investing - Investieren nach Erwartungen

Aktienkurse und Markterwartungen als Basis für Anlageentscheidungen Mit einem Vorwort von Peter L. Bernstein

Nur wirklich fundierte Anlageentscheidungen bergen das Potenzial überdurchschnittlicher Gewinne für Investoren. Das gilt besonders in Zeiten, in denen Märkte nicht stürmisch wachsen, sondern in denen sich die Spreu vom Weizen trennt. Hier genügt es nicht, "dabei zu sein", sich an den vergangenen Gewinnen zu orientieren und alles Übrige dem Zufall zu überlassen. Ob ein Unternehmen echten Mehrwert bietet, erweist sich vielmehr erst durch die sorgfältige Analyse seiner Zukunftsaussichten. Rappaport und Mauboussin vermitteln in ihrem Buch das Werkzeug, das Investoren für fundierte Entscheidungen benötigen. Sie kombinieren lang bewährte Konzepte wie z. B. das Modell des diskontierten Cashflows und die porterschen Grundelemente unternehmerischer Wettbewerbsstrategie. Hieraus entsteht ein völlig neuer Ansatz auf der Grundlage erwartungsgeleiteten Investierens. Langwierige Vorausschätzungen der künftigen Cashflows eines Unternehmens sind dabei entbehrlich. Stattdessen richten erwartungsgeleitete Investoren das Augenmerk auf den Aktienkurs und die Informationen, die dieser über die Erwartungen des Marktes im Hinblick auf den Shareholder-Value birgt. In diesem Buch erfahren Investoren, wie sie die Aktienkurse lesen und die Zukunft vorausdenken können. Es versetzt sie in die Lage, früher als andere zu erkennen, wo Verschiebungen der Markterwartungen stattfinden werden, und gibt ihnen damit den Schlüssel zu echten Zusatzgewinnen in die Hand.

“...a much-needed handbook with contributions from well-chosen practitioners. A primary accomplishment is to provide guidance for those involved in modeling and simulation in support of Systems of Systems development, more particularly guidance that draws on well-conceived academic research to define concepts and terms, that identifies primary challenges for developers, and that suggests fruitful approaches grounded in theory and successful examples.” Paul Davis, The RAND Corporation Modeling and Simulation Support for System of Systems Engineering Applications provides a comprehensive overview of the underlying theory, methods, and solutions in modeling and simulation support for system of systems engineering. Highlighting plentiful multidisciplinary applications of modeling and simulation, the book uniquely addresses the criteria and challenges found within the field. Beginning with a foundation of concepts, terms, and categories, a theoretical and generalized approach to system of systems engineering is introduced, and real-world applications via case studies and examples are presented. A unified approach is maintained in an effort to understand the complexity of a single system as well as the context among other proximate systems. In addition, the book features: Cutting edge coverage of modeling and simulation within the field of system of systems, including transportation, system health management, space mission analysis, systems engineering methodology, and energy State-of-the-art advances within multiple domains to instantiate theoretic insights, applicable methods, and lessons learned from real-world applications of modeling and simulation The challenges of system of systems engineering using a systematic and holistic approach Key concepts, terms, and activities to provide a comprehensive, unified, and concise representation of the field A collection of chapters written by over 40 recognized international experts from academia, government, and industry A research agenda derived from the contribution of experts that guides scholars and researchers towards open questions Modeling and Simulation Support for System of Systems Engineering Applications is an ideal reference and resource for academics and practitioners in operations research, engineering, statistics, mathematics, modeling and simulation, and computer science. The book is also an excellent course book for graduate and PhD-level courses in modeling and simulation, engineering, and computer science.
