Best Investing Books Of 2015

best investing booksWhen I was growing up, my family always had the local news tuned in during lunch and dinner… or supper as we called it in Nebraska.

I remember watching the local news on the small TV on the kitchen shelf.  They were always concerned about the financial markets.  Especially with the price of corn, wheat, and soybeans… that was the life on the farm in Nebraska.

But the thing that always caught my attention was the talk about daily gains and losses on the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

Why I got into stock investing

As you can see, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (the green line) and corn prices (the red line) had very different performances in the ‘90s.  The stock market seemed to soar higher on a daily basis, while corn prices were stagnant or falling most of the decade.

As a result, I took an interest in investing back in the early ‘90s when I was still in high school.  At the time, the stock market seemed a complete mystery.  After all, what could be so important that it made it news worthy if it had gone up or down by 1% or even if it was unchanged for the day.

So, I started reading books about this mysterious stock market.

Best Investing Books By Benjamin Graham

Luckily, there are many great books about investing.

The one investor that was a super star in Nebraska then and now is Warren Buffett.  And he learned from Benjamin Graham.  The books Security Analysis and The Intelligent Investor by Graham were some of the first ones I ever read.

They are still essential reading for any investor today.  These ground breaking books do an excellent job of describing the emotional framework and analytical tools investors need for financial success.

Best Investing Books By Peter Lynch

Another legendary investor I like is Peter Lynch.  He was the manager of the Magellan Fund at Fidelity Investments between 1977 and 1990.

During that time, it was the best performing mutual fund in the world.  He averaged an eye popping 29.2% annual return!

His books One Up on Wall Street, Beating the Street, and Learn to Earn are books that every investor should read.  If you’re just starting to learn about investing, start with his book Learn to Earn.

One thing that will help every investor is continuing to learn.  I hope the ideas and information I share here helps you continue down that path.

A great book that came out this year is A Wealth of Common Sense: Why Simplicity Trumps Complexity in Any Investment Plan by Ben Carlson.  It’s a good read about the importance of understanding and perspective can help you make better investment decisions.

I draw from all of these great minds when creating My ETF Trading System.
