By James Grant. Grant is known for his contrariness, wry wit and elegant writing style. He also has a knack for seeing big financial market shifts before they happen. Founded in 1983, each 12-page issue includes long and short investment suggestions in a range of asset classes—equities, fixed income, real estate, and others—as well as astute observations on interest rates, monetary policy, the credit markets, and currencies. The editorial mission, as its site says, “is to see the present more clearly and to squint into the future more imaginatively.” Recent issues of Grant’s have featured interest income (that rare and precious commodity), the radical policies of the world’s central banks and the “man with the perfect resume” and the site includes some sample free issues you can read for yourself. Every subscription to Grant’s includes a copy that is mailed to you, complimentary, online access and mobile access as well as access to the online archive of 33-years worth of past issues.
Wegen ihres höheren Wachstumspotenzials haben Small Caps die größte Renditeerwartung. Allerdings ist diese Hoffnung auch mit einem höheren Risiko verbunden. Professionelle Anleger empfehlen daher, breit zu streuen. In einem größeren Depot sollten neben Large und Mid Caps auch Small Caps vorhanden sein. Anleger, gerade private, sollten sich nie auf einzelne Werte verlassen.
