Davis Dynasty by John Rothchild

Book Description

This work presemts a half century of Wall Street history as seen through the lives of its most illustrious family. This compelling new narrative from bestselling author John Rothchild tells the story of three generations of the legendary Davis family, who rank among the most successful investors in the history of the Street. With a novelist's wit and eye for telling detail, Rothchild chronicles the financial escapades of this eccentric, pioneering clan, providing a vivid portrait of fifty years of Wall Street history along the way. Rothchild shadows the Davis family's holdings through two lengthy bull markets, two savage and seven mild bear markets, one crash, and twenty five corrections and, in the process, reveals the strategies behind the family s uncanny ability to consistently beat the markets. The Davis Dynasty begins in 1947, the year Shelby Davis quit his job as a state bureaucrat and, armed with $50,000 of his wife's money, took the plunge into stock investing. By the time he died in 1994, he had multiplied his wife's original stake 8,000 times! The story continues with his son, Shelby, who established one of the most successful funds of the past thirty years. The final characters in this enthralling family saga are grandsons Chris and Andrew. Both surrendered to the Davis family passion for investing and both went on to earn reputations as investment luminaries in their own right. John Rothchild (Miami Beach, FL) co wrote the blockbusters "One Up on Wall Street", "Beating the Street", and "Learn to Earn with Peter Lynch". He is the author of "Survive and Profit in Ferocious Markets" (Wiley: 0 471 34882 1), "A Fool and His Money" (Wiley: 0 471 25138 0), and "Going for Broke". He has written for "Harper's", "Rolling Stone", "Esquire", and other leading magazines and he has appeared on the "Today Show", "The Nightly Business Report", and CNBC.
