Book Description

August 1998 Bloomberg Personal Bookshelf
The most thorough, most practical book on small-cap stocks has now been revised and expanded. Stocks with a market capitalization of less than $1 billion are some of the best long-term investments on Wall Street. A dollar invested in small caps in 1926 would be worth $2,843 today, versus $811 if invested in large caps. Top Bloomberg editors Christopher Graja and Elizabeth Ungar explain why adding a small percentage of small-cap stocks to a portfolio helps investors boost returns without increasing their risk.

Many investors have heard the raves about how lucrative small-cap stocks can be. Graja and Ungar show the individual investor how to spot the top performers, explain how these stocks behave, and demonstrate how to incorporate them into a portfolio. This new edition also features an exclusive interview with top stockpicker Peter Lynch, plus valuable tips from other experts on how to identify which smallcap mutual funds are the strongest.

Investing in Small-Cap Stocks is packed with essential contact information, including Web sites, addresses, and phone numbers of the S&P 600 SmallCap companies. It's the jumpstart investors need to take advantage of this exciting asset class.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good pocket guide Sept. 6 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is a nicely organized guide geared for the beginner to intermediate level investor. It is clearly written and gives most of the more solid and less risky principles of investment. The most important contribution this book gives is that it clearly shows how to evaluate the profitability of a company in detail. Whatever kind of investor you are, if you don't know how to do this then scratch the word investing and use gambling to describe your stock market strategy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Keep in Mind You Will Compete with Experienced Traders May 22 2005
By SmallCapHunter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book covers the basics but frankly you are going to need more in depth trading strategies to succeed, especially if you want to make short term trading / investing with small cap and micro cap stocks.

Trading small cap stocks is challenging by nature and the stock market doesn't care if you are experienced or a newbie stock trader. The opportunities are the same for all of us, so either youre going to make money or you are going to lose it in favor of the more seasoned traders.

As a small cap trader your homework is all about studying and testing different trading strategies that can help you take advantage of stocks and at the same time protect your gains. Just always keep in mind that a good strategy has to be simple and practical. Complicated stock systems will always make you slow in your decision making process or confuse you from the start.

There are some very good sites on the web where you can access practical trading strategies geared toward micro cap and small cap stocks. One of those sites is Profit From Penny Stocks [...]

They focus on short term stock trading tactics that can help you identify and handle hot small caps while reducing your trading risk.

All in all, stock market trading is all about picking the best stock opportunities and following your buy and sell signals with ease and simplicity. Once you learn to master your trading decisions, you can aspire to produce consistent profitable results.
