About Joel Greenblatt: In his 2005 bestseller The Little Book That Beats The Market, hedge fund manager Joel Greenblatt laid out a stunningly simple way to beat the market using two — and only two — fundamental variables. The “Magic Formula,” as he called it, produced back-tested returns of 30.8 percent per year from 1988 through 2004, more than doubling the S&P 500’s 12.4 percent return during that time. Greenblatt also produced exceptional returns as managing partner at Gotham Capital, a New York City-based hedge fund he founded. The firm averaged a remarkable 40 percent annualized return over more than two decades.
