1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry Ted, It Really Doesn't Work Dec 16 2001
At least, the book is an entertaining read. It is _valuable_ to learn how to get "The Stock Picture" (from M. C. Horsey Co., Salisbury Md, 410-742-3700.. but the benefit stops there.
Ted Warren implies that most stock prices are manipulated by insiders to bilk the public out of investment dollars. If an investor can recognize the patterns, so the thinking goes, s/he can pick out stocks that have been manipulated to a low level, and know how to sell when they are at their peak.
--I studied the book, and got a May 2000 Edition of The Stock Picture. Using Ted's techniques, I picked out 30 likely stocks, but didn't buy them. I saved my list, waited a year, then evaluated my picks with the May 2001 Stock Picture. Not one of my picks had become profitable, at any time, in that year.
The Stock Picture includes a chart of the Dow Jones Avg from 1938 to present. From 1957 to 1965, when the author was making money and writing the book, the Dow increased from 416 to 1001, ie., it increased by 2.5 times. From 1993 to 2001, it went from about 4000 to 10,000, again an increase of 2.5 times. The difference is, that from about 1996 to 2001, the DOW has been wildly fluctuating, as never before. Since 1999, the upward momentum has been broken--You can see it plainly in the MC Horsey chart. We are in a volatile, unstable losers market. Ted was in a relatively stable, upward trending market. He couldn't go far wrong in 57-65. We can't go right, using the same techniques, today. But, after the next great depression, it may be useful again...

4.0 out of 5 stars A contrarian's delight May 25 2000
I'm almost ashamed of myself for not giving this book a higher rating.
Let me give you some background. This book was written in 1966. Parts of the book are hard to understand because it is very technical. I found myself reading this book three times so far, especially when the market is down. The chapter on stocks that resist general market trends is very instructive. I have read that chapter many times.
Here's the downside to all of this. Yes, I have made money based on his methods, and I firmly believe that anyone can. However, there are several issues involved here. One, you have to be realllllly patient. This is not some silly get rich quick scheme. This is a very standard buy and hold strategy like you've already heard about before. Another issue too that is very important that many people overlook is that when a stock is in a down period for a long period of time, don't buy it until it shows signs of life (breaking the resistance). This is why people lose money. The book doesn't really cover that subject very well, but the monthly newsletter The Investolator does. The problem of course is that after you buy this book, then you want or need to subscribe to the newsletter. The monthly newsletter is very informative and fills in a lot of the missing gaps particularly about when to enter a trade. Quite honestly, as much as I like the book, the monthly newsletter is a necessity for me. I can already hear the howls across the land. Yes, you've got to spend more money which makes many people wonder. I can say without reservation that the book combined with the newsletter is an excellent investment. I've been a subscriber since October of 1998. It's worth it.
Allow me to give a couple of examples.

4.0 out of 5 stars Warren's way a cut above Edwards & Magee April 22 2000
As an experienced market technician and author of the book "Technical Analysis Simplified," I can state with some authority that Ted Warren's method of technical analysis is "head and shoulders" (no pun intended) above 98% of the other books out there that attempt to teach this subject. I have read nearly every book imaginable on market analysis, and this book displays a profound understanding of market machinations I have only found in one or two other titles. One of the things that struck me in reading Warren's book is that someone who cut his teeth on Edwards & Magee (the "bible" of technical analysis) would find himself having to unlearn much of what he was taught. Based on my experience, Ted's understanding of the markets was far superior to that of the anodyne Edwards & Magee, and his technique is more accurate. While Ted's method isn't the most advanced or the most comprehensive of technical methods, it certainly is one of the most practical and proven ways of profiting in the markets that I have come across over the years. This book comes with my highest commendations. P.S. If you haven't learned to view the market--as Warren advocates--as a battle of "manipulators" vs. the uninformed investing public, you probably aren't cut out for trading in the markets, anyway, and should avoid them altogether.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a Book! March 18 2000
.... to have elicited such a range of responses. I have a few comments to add to the mix. First, I am baffled by the complaints that this is a "get rich quick" scheme. Warren gives a real-time example of how his method would work in practice. He starts with a small account and shows how after 10 years, with perfect stock picking, you could end up with $200,000, after taxes. Hardly quick, and not that rich. For the fellow down below who lost $52,000 -- Ouch! I feel your pain. But man, how could you expose yourself to a hit like that on one throw? Start out small, as Warren suggests, just to see if it works for you. I loved the editorial posted below that proved there are no "manipulators" because they called Mike Morsa, who could not name any, and then they called the SEC who said Morsa hadn't given them any names. Hey folks, let's prove there are no drugs in this country by having Mr. Morsa admit that he doesn't know any drug smugglers and hasn't turned any in to the DEA lately. The people criticizing Warren's method for never selling at a loss have a good point. An excellent point. Warren assumed that the manipulators are infallible and, in the long run, never lose. While that may have been his experience, the fact is that the manipulators occasionally get their heads handed to them. This can happen for any number of reasons: they, or the company, run out of financing; a key player becomes incapacitated or pulls out of the operation; they get out-manipulated by a smarter crowd; or the company is just a dog and cannot generate public interest at any cost. When that happens the stock goes down in flames and those who are trying to ride the insiders' coattails end up with $52,000 holes in their pockets. Read more ›
