About Joel Greenblatt: In his 2005 bestseller The Little Book That Beats the Market, hedge fund manager Joel Greenblatt laid out a surprisingly simple way to beat the market using two – and only two – fundamental variables. The “magic formula,” as he called it, produced look-back returns of 30.8% per year from 1988 to 2004, more than double the 12.4% return of the S&P 500 during that period. Greenblatt also produced stellar returns as 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.
