Commonsense Strategies for Making--and Keeping--Money In Today's High-Risk, High-Reward Stock Market
In today's fast-paced, every-investor-for-himself financial marketplace, it's sometimes hard to tell whose advice you can trust. Still, each day, smart investors around the world choose to trust William J. O'Neil, publisher of Investor's Business Daily and author of the million-plus bestseller How to Make Money in Stocks?
Why? Because Bill O'Neil knows better than most how to win on Wall Street--and is legendary for sharing his secrets with anyone who will listen.
In The Successful Investor, O'Neil outlines how independent investors can move with the market instead of against it, and increase their profits by relying on sound, time-tested rules instead of hot tips and irrational greed. Let The Successful Investor show you how to:
Bill O'Neil will be the first to admit that he has no inside knowledge about what will happen in tomorrow's market. What he does know how to do is profit if the market goes up, and keep from losing those profits when the markets head south. In The Successful Investor, O'Neil reveals what his decades in the market have taught him, and outlines a stable, nonemotional investment plan designed to comfort and protect investors buffeted and bewildered by the today's tumultuous stock market.
William J. O'Neil is the founder and chairman of Investor's Business Daily and the author of the million-copy best-seller How to Make Money in Stocks. Born in Oklahoma and raised in Texas, William J. O'Neil began his investment career as a stockbroker. He started investing with less than $500, but through continued study, mistakes, and a desire to find out exactly how the stock market really worked, O'Neil realized a 20-fold increase in his own account in 26 months from October 1962 to December 1964. He then purchased a set on the New York Stock Exchange and opened his own investment management and research firm, William O'Neil + Co., Incorporated, at the age of 30. Founded in 1963, William O'Neil + Co. was the first to create a computerized stock-market database, which is used today by over 400 major U.S. institutions across the country, including banks, insurance companies, pension and mutual funds, corporations, and government organizations.
Comprehensive guide to investing. Only problem is that some of the views of Mr. Oneil were fairly narrow-minded. Worth a look though if you are a diligent investor.Published on July 10 2010 by Joshua D. Nash

This book reminded me of an infomercial. It just read too quickly. The part about how to read charts is not for beginners. Read morePublished on Nov. 24 2003 by Cameron Scholtz
