Two years ago in Net Profit: How to Invest and Compete in the Real World of Internet Business (1999), Cohan, a high-tech strategy and investment consultant, broke Internet companies down into nine different business segments to analyze the industry's stock market dynamics. Since then a lot has changed. After the technology market downturn that began in April 2000, Internet companies have lost 90 percent of their aggregate market capitalization; operating losses forced 360 dot.coms to let 31,000 employees go. Net Profit foresaw a winnowing out of weaker companies, but Cohan argues that the industry's underlying market structure remains unchanged and that there are still "spectacular" investments to be found and exploited. Using a sophisticated quantitative analysis of 200 publicly traded companies, Cohan determines the variables that can be used to identify those stocks that will outperform others within the same nine industry segments he earlier delineated. But he also warns that "because of the risks of Internet stocks, it is dangerous to depend on them exclusively as a means of achieving long-term financial goals." David Rouse
