Product description

Review

Beating the Street was Peter Lynch's follow-up to his bestselling book, One Up on Wall Street. Although many have accused him of writing the same book twice, his second time at bat allows him to add even more clarity to his basic message. Lynch, for those unfamiliar with the pantheon of investment gods, managed Fidelity's flagship Magellan fund for more than 20 years, compounding one of the most fantastic performance records ever. Although Lynch did not invent the "growth at a reasonable price" (GARP) approach to buying stocks, his unique spin on it allowed him to become one of the most successful portfolio managers ever.

Lynch's basic message in Beating the Street is quite Foolish--you, an individual, can actually find great stocks before Wall Street does. Using a combination of intelligence, reflection, perseverance and discipline, it is possible for the average person to uncover great investments. Although many mistakenly boil Lynch down to "buy what you like," his real point of view is that products and services you use and enjoy are often provided by excellent companies. If you research these companies and find out whether or not the stock that corresponds to them is priced favorably, you have an outstanding chance at compounding market-beating returns. Although much is made of Lynch's connection to Magellan, I found the most helpful parts of the book were Lynch's lucid descriptions of various companies with superior products or services and what happened to the stock. Like little morality plays, these small dramas of stock picking are rich with useful details applicable to anyone's style of portfolio management. Also, Lynch's description of how he turned his wife's IRA into a million-dollar account by focused investing in the undervalued shares of Federal National Mortgage Association (NYSE: FNM) serves as an example of how a focused portfolio of only a few stocks can create fantastic wealth. -- The Motley Fool, Randy Befumo
