Announcing Fisher Investments on Telecom

Latest Release From Fisher Investments Press Offers a How-to Guide for Investing in the Telecom Sector

WOODSIDE, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2011) - Fisher Investments Press released its latest guide to understanding investment sectors, Fisher Investments on Telecom. Authored by members of Fisher Investments' Research staff, the knowledgeable team explains the telecom field in an engaging and educational way.

After major changes and consolidation in 2011, Telecom (officially Telecommunication Services) is certain to be an avidly discussed topic in 2012. As the guide explains, Telecom is typically a sector that can offer investors lower volatility, stronger relative performance in soft markets and appealing dividends. These factors are innate to telecom companies, as they provide a vital service to consumers and businesses. Demand for them doesn't stretch much in good times or snap back much in downturns.

In addition to the aforementioned factors, Fisher Investments on Telecom covers the sector landscape in detail, explaining how various macroeconomic factors can affect the sector and how to understand the impact of future changes on supply and demand drivers of Telecom stocks. An excerpt from the book follows below:

"A tremendous amount of upfront investment in equipment and infrastructure is required before a Telecom firm can provide services and start generating revenue... Telecom firms must spend to adapt to rapidly changing market conditions and new service offerings. Fixed line providers need to increase fiber-optic infrastructure, and wireless companies are continually upgrading to offer higher speed data services. In 2007, Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) telecommunications investment reached $185 billion!"

Fisher Investments on Telecom is the tenth installment of the Fisher Investments On series, which teaches readers about the primary investment sectors. Each book focuses on a specific sector, providing in-depth analysis and tools to help investors create their own strategy.
