Win $2000

Buy Martin Hawes' latest book, Shares: 7 Ways to Beat the Market, and be in to win $2000.

Hawes says the book has been written to help both long-term investors and short-term traders alike.

He believes everyone can make money from the sharemarket.

The book is available through Good Returns' bookstore at $29.95.

Conditions of entry are contained in books with prize stickers only. The competition is being run by Penguin Books (NZ) Ltd.

Invesco re-rated

Research house Morningstar has retained its two-star rating on the combined Invesco/County Investment Management group despite noting that the management process had recently been strengthened.

A two-star overall rating, based on both quantitative and qualitative assessments, indicates a "relatively poor quality" funds manager in Morningstar's opinion.
Invesco has a low profile in New Zealand, however it does offer a number of funds including a global share trust invested along thematic lines.
