Overview

"You will find lots of jewels in these pages that may do as much for you as they have for me."-from the Introduction by Kenneth L. Fisher Forbes columnist

Widely respected and admired, Philip Fisher is among the most influential investors of all time. His investment philosophies, introduced almost forty years ago, are not only studied and applied by today's finance professionals, but are also regarded by many as gospel. He recorded these philosophies in Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits, a book considered invaluable reading when it was first published in 1958, and a must-read today.

This is one of the finest books that I read regarding investing companies, that not just has a great balance sheet, but a company that has a great management team to manage your investment. Fisher's insights illustrates the importance of investing in stocks for the long-term, not for quick profits.
