Joel Greenblatt Interviewed by Steve Forbes

April 17, 2010
Joel Greenblatt appeared on Steve Forbes’s Intelligent Investing program this week. The author of The Little Book That Beats the Market (Little Books. Big Profits) has been working on expanding the offerings for his business venture Formula Investing. The book illustrated a stock investment method that selects stocks based on the combination of earning yield and return on equity.

Individual investors can use the investment method by signing up with Greenblatt’s business venture FormulaInvesting.com.

In the Forbes interview, he discussed his recent work of expanding the magic formula to other countries. Data integrity of the international market is of major concern so he had to construct his own database. The international offering will be available throughh Formulainvesting.com this quarter.

Also he discussed his attempt to extend his magic formula to financial and utility companies – two areas that were excluded in the original book.
