Napier, Anatomy of the Bear
Anatomy of the Bear: Lessons from Wall Street's Four Great Bottoms,

Described as “a cult classic in the investment community,” Russell Napier’s Anatomy of the Bear: Lessons from Wall Street’s Four Great Bottoms, first published in 2005, is now in its fourth edition, with a new foreword and preface (Harriman House, 2016).

Napier remains a bear. He believes that the run-up in the markets we have seen since 2009 is merely a bear market rally. The “inexorable pressure” from rising consumption in China and increasing retirement in the U.S. “augurs deflation and thus can unleash the force that will push equities to valuation levels associated with the bear market bottoms of 1921, 1932, 1949 and 1982.” (p. 13)

August 1921, July 1932, June 1949, and August 1982: four summer bottoms. What do they have in common? And what can we learn from them to steer ourselves through the next “big one,” whenever it may occur?
