Joel Greenblatt Ideas for action

About Joel Greenblatt: In his 2005 bestseller, The Little Book That Beats The Market, hedge fund manager Joel Greenblatt presented a surprisingly simple way to beat the market using two – and only two – fundamental variables. The “magic formula,” as he called it, produced ex post-tested returns of 30.8% per annum from 1988 to 2004, more than doubling the 12.4% return of the S&P 500 during that time. Greenblatt also produced exceptional returns as a managing partner of Gotham Capital, a New York-based hedge fund he founded. The company has averaged a remarkable 40% annualized return over more than two decades.
