    Very Good, Inexpensive Introduction to High Tech Investing

    Before commenting on this book, I would like to note that few people should be buying individual stocks rather than indexed, no-load mutual funds. For an overview on why that is true, see John Bogle's Common Sense on Mutual Funds. On the other hand, the authors of this book forecast that high technology companies will make up most of the indexed funds within the next few years. So you will be owning them anyway. High technology stocks offer high potential and high risk. The book does a good job of telling you what those potentials and risks are, and pointing you towards places where you can get good information. Both authors are well-known authorities in the field. One of the most useful elements in this book is the valuation method of price-to-growth-flow measurement. This method takes earnings per share and adds research-and-development per share. You then look at the multiples involved. As the book suggests, it is very important to buy these companies inexpensively because their valuations go up and down so much (often several times in the same year). I heartily recommend this book to anyone who knows little about high tech investing and would like a good overview of the basics. After you have finished the book, I do suggest that you take the time to establish and write down what your financial goals are and create a plan to accomplish them. Be sure to buy low and sell high rather than the opposite! Donald Mitchell, co-author of The Irresistible Growth Enterprise and The 2,000 Percent Solution
