Altucher, founder of the Stockpickr.com social networking web site for investing, shows how to find stocks that should benefit from irresistible multidecade demographic trends. He singles out the Barnes Group, for instance, because its business of producing parts for railroads should be positively impacted by rail growth. Altucher also says individuals should seek out and emulate the investments made by successful professionals and piggyback onto their research. If Warren Buffett has been buying stock in railroads like Burlington Northern, then, says Altucher, so should you. The irreverent Altucher doesn't mind poking holes in cherished beliefs, as when he says he would rather give his children money to start successful businesses than spend it on college, which might not be economically beneficial. He also recounts some of the lessons he learned from his investing and business successes and, most insightfully, his failures. All in all, Altucher makes good investing and life points that would benefit most readers, especially young professionals.
