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:
- Buy only the best stocks at only the best times
- Recognize chart patterns that presage enormous stock moves, both up and down
- Manage your portfolio over time to maximize its returns
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.
About the Author
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.

I know a lot of investors who buy IBD but who are lost. This book will make sense out of IBD and show you how to use it.
If nothingelse, I would recommend that you buy just the Monday edition and check out the top 150 stocks. These are selected with IBD proprietary data. Just start there and continue your research.
I have made alot of money playing stock splits and I contend that the real reason was I checked the data from IBD before investing. Not all stocks that split do well. One prominent example is Compaq which split and ne ver returned to it's normal price. I passed on Compaq based on research in IBD. Thank God for IBD!
O'Niels other book 24 Essential Lessons for Investment success is also excellent. However, if you were to pick just one of O'Niels books, I would go with The Successful Investor. That book along with reading IBD (at least Mondays) will give you the edge to become a successful investor.
O'Niel provides a paper and his newest book that can show anyone how to make money predictable and consistently. Buffet is okay for those who those who already have a wad and can handle missing opportunities (like Buffet missed the technology boom in the 90's and again since Oct 1992) and are into "buy and hold." I don't know about you, but "buy & hold" didn't work for me and it certaintly didn't work for the 80 million who lost over a trillion during the Clinton bear market.
This book is O'Niels best book to date. Use and it profit.
Bill O'Neil is more than a author of successful books and publisher of a great newspaper-IBD. He is also a successful, savvy investor. He knows how to win on WALL STREET and now he shows the rest of us how we can win and win big.
I highly recommend this great book by Bill O'Niel. It goes beyond his previous books. It provides a blueprint, a road to follow that works again and again. If you were to do nothingesle but buy this book and IBD, that alone would make you a very successful investor, far ahead of those who listen to brokers, financial planners, advisors and other so called investment experts including other authors.
Read Bill O'Niel, but more importantly, follow his advice to achieve your wealth.

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
