From the school of unemotional investing comes the classic How to Make Money in Stocks, by Wall Street analyst and publisher William O'Neil. Readers new to securities will find it an excellent primer, one that relies on time-honoured indicators such as quarterly earnings, market capitalization and daily indexes. O'Neil's study of winning stocks stretches back to the 1960s and he shares his insights here, describing what characterizes a growth stock, when to cut your losses (at seven or eight percent, no more) and how to spot a market top.
The techniques in How to Make Money in Stocks are hardly revolutionary but therein lies their strength, as O'Neil claims his is "a winning system in good times or bad." Investors interested in Net stocks might be disappointed--the author's first rule is that a company must show a pattern of growing profits, which disqualifies many dot coms. O'Neil's approach to stocks is, above all, rational and he pays little heed to market hype.
Those new to investing would do well to read this book before embarking, and even more seasoned traders may find How to Make Money in Stocks a refreshing return to basics. Markets may swing bull and bear but O'Neil promises to stand firm. --Demian McLean, Amazon.comFrom the Author:
Anyone can succeed in the market with this proven system
Have you ever wondered about the REAL reasons some investors make a lot of money in the market - and yet others don't do so well? Everyone wants to pick the best stocks and make a lot of money. How do you find the strongest stocks and yet minimize your risk? And if you do select winning stocks, when is the best time to take a profit? How do you deal with the ups and downs of the market and stay balanced and unemotional? "How To Make Money in Stocks" answers those questions. I believe this book is for the novice investor as well as the professional. The CAN SLIM Investment Strategy which is outlined, grew out of an on-going study of the most successful stock market winners dating back to 1953. I've spent more than 45 years researching what works - and what doesn't - in investing. That quest turned into a very rewarding road, filled with many important revelations, and some of them might surprise you. Seven key characteristics kept appearing in EVERY winning stock BEFORE they made their major price moves. The CAN SLIM approach (an acronym for the 7 traits) is based on how the market actually works...not someone's theory or the latest investing fad. CAN SLIM continues to hold up in every market cycle each year - and finally gives you, the investor, exactly what you need to look for each time you buy or sell. I've always felt it is possible for anyone to make money in the market with the right information. That's why I created "Investor's Business Daily"...to make sure investors, for the first time, had the CAN SLIM facts so crucial to picking winning stocks. I'd like those of you who read this book to know it was written for YOU. The opening line of this book reads: "Success in a free country is simple. Get a job, get an education, and learn to save and invest wisely. Anyone can do it. You can do it." It is with great pleasure that I dedicate this book to those of you who choose to succeed and make your dreams come true. I've spent many years refining this rule-based investing strategy, and now pass it on to each of you. It is remarkable that there IS a way to succeed if you make a committed choice - and take the necessary steps outlined. Don't ever give up and believe me, you CAN do it! You'll find investing successfully is very liberating. The only stronghold that will remain is what to do with your profits! Best of luck to each of you as you pursue your own investing goals. Please drop me a line after you've read this book and had a chance to actually see for yourself that investing can work for you too!
