The bestselling guide to buying stocks, from the founder of Investor's Business Daily-now completely revised and updated

Publisher Description

The Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, and USA Today business bestseller! The bestselling guide to buying stocks, from the founder of Investor's Business Daily--now completely revised and updated When it was first published, How to Make Money in Stocks hit the investing world like a jolt, providing readers with the first in-depth explanation of William J. O'Neil's innovative CAN SLIM investing method. This technique, based on an exhaustive study of the greatest stock market winners dating back to 1953, is a straightforward, seven-step process for minimizing risk, maximizing return, and finding stocks that are poised to perform. Five years later, O'Neil, founder of the industry icon Investor's Business Daily, revised his classic text and provided a glimpse on how the average investor can make money in today's equities market. This fourth edition of How to Make Money in Stocks has been revised and updated with new chapters designed to help investors increase their performance in a turbulent economic climate. New discussions include: Greater clarification of the key CAN SLIM investment strategy New models of the greatest stock market winners that provide more basis for the ongoing effectiveness and superior performance of the CAN SLIM strategy Fresh stock charts featured in two colors for easier analysis of trends An invaluable guide on how to maximize both Investor's Business Daily and to find winning stocks Real-world success stories from investors who have used this system New information on portfolio management and the impact of hedge funds Praise for previous editions "The most useful stock market book in years." --Management Accounting "In O'Neil's opinion, a stock isn't unlike a car or a set of golf clubs--you have to pay for quality. A winning system." --Personal Investor "A superbbook, spelling out his investment strategies in plain English and O'Neilisms." --San Francisco Business Times "His very good advice comprises a mixture of three parts common sense and one part technical knowledge." --The American Spectator
