This course is a very hands-on companion to Peter Navarro's two books on investing. The best-selling If It's Raining in Brazil, Buy Starbucks, introduced the revolutionary concept of Big Picture Investing as a way to not only profit—but also protect your portfolio from heavy losses. Since the publication of that book, the author has received countless requests to illustrate, in a very detailed way, just how to apply Big Picture Investing to the day-to-day management on individual portfolios. Hence, this exciting audio course.
Peter Navarro is a professor of business at the University of California, Irvine. He earned his Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University and is a founder and managing member of Platinum Capital Management, the general partner of the Macrowave Investor Hedge Fund. In addition, Professor Navarro has written two influential books on big picture investing, the best-selling If it's Raining in Brazil, Buy Starbucks and When the Stock Market Moves, Will You Be Ready?
