9780066640013: The Internet Bubble

The Speculative Market Bubble has Burst -- Where are the Investment Opportunities Now?Two years ago, the first edition of The Internet Bubble forecast the collapse of overvalued technology stocks. Since then, dot-coms have folded, the NASDAQ took a nosedive, and investors have lost billions. Now that ersatz super-companies Amazon, Yahoo, and Cisco have come down to earth, what can investors do?

According to authors Anthony and Michael Perkins, investors shouldn't give up. The Internet and technology revolution is just getting started, they say. New investment opportunities are developing rapidly. The second phase of the Internet -- what the authors call the "Evernet" -- is upon us, and there are gems among the techno-rubble.

In this updated and revised edition of their bestseller, the authors discuss the companies that survived, the few that thrived, and the best bets to become tomorrow's blue chips. They turn their attention to the future of high tech, exploring the fallout -- which isn't over yet -- of the dot-com explosion and predicting where the Web will weave its way next.

With a new introduction and thorough revisions throughout, this is the essential insider's guide to the forces and people who drove the technology stock market past its breaking point and the postburst climate that will reveal the real winners of the high-tech market.

About the Author:

Anthony B. Perkins is the chairman and editor in chief of Red Herring Communications. He appears regularly on MSNBC's Hardball and is a regular on-air commentator for CNN, CNBC, BBC, and Bloomberg television, as well as a frequent speaker at industry conferences worldwide.

From Library Journal:

Just as the authors predicted, the Internet bubble has burst. Brothers who founded the business and high-tech magazine Red Herring, they had issued a warning in their prior book, The Internet Bubble: Inside the Overvalued World of High-Tech Stocks and What You Need To Know To Avoid the Coming Shakeout (LJ 11/1/99), which analyzed 133 Internet-related businesses and advised investors who held these stocks to sell. Of course, no one listened. Examining the charts and calculations of the same 133 overvalued companies for this edition, the authors discovered that every company has indeed lost value. Here, they delve deeper into how individual investors lost significant amounts of money, showing that venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, investment bankers, and those who underwrite companies had access to "insider" information and were thus able to capitalize on speculative initial public offerings (IPOs) while pushing unproven companies onto the unsuspecting average retail investor. Despite these findings, the authors remain bullish, arguing that the emergence of new technology has created interesting growth investment opportunities and that the "high-tech industry still has a great future that investors can profit from if they know where to look."
