GRANDE EXPECTATIONS  A Year in the Life of Starbucks' Stock, Blumenthal, Karen
1 Blumenthal, Karen GRANDE EXPECTATIONS A Year in the Life of Starbucks' Stock
Crown Business 2007 0307339718 / 9780307339713 First Edition Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
HC/DJ - fine. Excellent condition. Hardcover clean, tight and unmarked. Jacket has a small amount of edge crinkling. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 320 pages; "Wall Street Journal bureau chief Blumenthal is a seasoned financial reporter, yet she admits that the stock market mystifies her. Her mission: to follow one stock closely for a year (2005) to gain insights on how the market works, and, ultimately, become a better investor. There could not have been a better choice than Starbucks (stock symbol SBUX). A favorite of the growth investing crowd, it's sexy, yet familiar, a phenomenal achiever that tends to go through stomach-churning gyrations. As the year unfolds, we attend the annual shareholders' meeting, learn the history of Starbucks, and find out the significance of stock buybacks, (legal) insider trading, stock splits, and analysts' reports. We get an inside view on how institutional investors, the big players like mutual funds and hedge funds, value a stock, as these big guns trade in and out of SBUX in blocks of 10,000 or more shares. While managing to take some of the mystery out of the market's machinations, Blumenthal provides insights and tools for the individual investor looking to "take the plunge." [600]

Fabulous Farmer, the Story of Walter Knott and His Berry Farm, Holmes, Roger and Paul Bailey
4 Holmes, Roger and Paul Bailey Fabulous Farmer, the Story of Walter Knott and His Berry Farm

Hardcover with illustrated boards, no jacket as issued. First edition 1956. Cover has light corner bumping, light edgewear , small tears to spine bottom and light ink rubbing. Chip from top of spine has been neatly taped. Pages are all intact and clean other than several pages have small amounts of underlining in pen. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall;

From a Reviewer: "Memories of Walter Knott.......Having worked at Knott's Berry Farm in the early 1970's, I feel very fortunate to have met Walter Knott. I often saw him early on Sunday mornings before the park opened when I was going to work in Ghost Town and he was walking from his home (at Knott's) to the little church by the lake. He was always very friendly and always said hello to any employees who passed by. This book was the first of several books to be written about the entrepreneurial man who founded Knott's Berry Farm in the 1940's after starting to grow berries in a very rural Buena Park, California in 1920. He developed Knott's Berry Farm as the first "theme park" in the United States by bringing in old buildings from various abandoned gold mining towns to form "Ghost Town" as an attraction for visitors who were waiting to have Mrs. Knott's famous Chicken Dinner. This was his way of paying tribute to the pioneering spirit of his ancestors who travelled west in covered wagons. The story of Walter Knott is an inspirational one for anyone, but particularly for those with an entrepreneurial spirit. He never gave up, despite many hardships and set-backs. This is also a wonderful book for anyone interested in the history and development of Orange County up to 1956 when the book was published. Highly recommended! " (375noto,713)
