Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
William J. O'Neil, the no-nonsense founder of Investor's Business Daily, believes that the best way to make money in the stock market is to use time-tested standards. In his view, markers such as daily indexes, market capitalization, and quarterly earnings might not be exciting, but they would have prevented many bad decisions during the dot-com boom/bust. A no-frills, bottom-line approach.
Soundview Executive Book Summaries

The founder of Investor's Business Daily, William O'Neil, has filled the new version of his book with more coverage of Nasdaq and mutual fund investing, better ways to read financial charts and the news for trading information, and the 19 most common investor mistakes and how they can be avoided.

    DO NOT BUY for NOOK

    Don't buy the nook book edition of this book. It heavily utilizes annotated stock charts in the text and these charts are completely unreadable on the nook. I'm extremely upset with Barnes and Noble for offering this book for sale in a state where it is inherently useless. The charts are unreadable on any version of the nook software

    I honestly feel like I have been completely ripped off. I've asked for a refund of the price for this book but even IF I do get my money back, the fact that this ebook is even for sale in this unusable state angers me.

    Trying to sell his newspaper; nook edition very bad

    First of all, I believe O'Neil wrote the book so he could sell more newspapers as well as other investment advisory services. The CANSLIM formula is difficult to apply to thousands of stocks; thusfar no mechnical system has been developed, so it's more or less guesswork. His newspaper, OTOH, publishes charts that supposedly fit the formula, so you really need to subscribe to the paper or a paid service to use the formula. Second, even if you want to go ahead and get the book, do not get the nook edition. It's poorly formatted and worst of all, the charts are just too small and you can't see the details of the stock charts, which is bad if you do want to study his methodology of chart reading.

    top notch information

    This book does what it says it will do, you can make money in stock investing by using this information. Beginners should "paper trade" at first, or use a very small percentage of their capital to start. It takes practice and experience to get a feel for it. Make sure you have a market that is going up, that is an increasing index, to make it a little easier for you. But it works, and takes a lot of the stress and uncertainly out of investing.

    Not recommended.... I meant the ebook... The book is great

    I bought this ebook thinking that i would be able to put this in my nook. But the charts are very blurry. I have a very difficult time studying the chart. That is why i ended up buying a book.. Unless there is a significant improvement, stick with book.. As far as the content is concered, this is must reading

    Charts are unreadable in the Nook

    To comprehend the book, the charts are very important. However you are not able to read the charts in the Nook. I tried to zoom in and read them on the Nook for the Mac/PC and still no luck. In this case the paperback is the best option.

    Excellent, practical discussion of one way to invest

    Although one can use O'Neil's market interpretation for short-term trading, that's not what this method is about. His goal is to describe various ways to recognize long-term winners. The "setups" he recommends are seen on the weekly chart (not daily), and the shortest ones are one to two Months(!) long and can last over a year. Similarly, though no method works all the time, intended hold times are weeks at a minimum. In other words, he's looking for stocks that are likely to be bought by the general market for some time.

    Great book yet the charts meant for learning make it a poor Nook book as they are to small to read.

    GREATEST STOCK BOOK EVER!!

    This is the greatest stock book ever in my opinion, every other book in the world about stocks and has been totally confusing and garbage. I have tried many different techniques and none of them worked, even though warren buffett's books are good to, but who wants to wait around for a good company stock to drop because of a mishap within the company, i wanna make money now like most of us do, and o'neil's book does that. Because of this book i have turned a 3,000.00 investment into 8,028.00 in one year and never being wrong once on a stock pick after reading this book. Get this book and combined it with what morningstar.com has to offer, and u cant go wrong. These two tools has made me plenty money, im going into second year now and it already looks great. #1 key is not to get greedy when stocks goes up and then lose it all, i usually let it go up about $5.00 a share before i sell it, it usually does that on average in about 1.5 months, i have no doubt that i will be rich beyond my dreams if i stick to this system. In these slow market times this is great, i cant wait for the next bull market, thats when i know i make incredible money. Make sure you dont forget about morningstar.com, without that website, i dont think i could have put what i learned in the book into full use and made the money that i have made, they make it so easy, they pretty much do all the work for you on there. Its a great compliment to the book. This is dangerous info for a non high school graduate like me who they said wouldnt amount to nothing without a diploma, Thank you again Mr. O'neil and the creators of morningstar.com, u are the best.

    I work for ibd

    ( i only sell the paper )and i am still learning about the market but I'll say this. Most of the people I call everyday on the phone know nothing about the market or cutting losses, they don't even know how to read stock charts, yet complain. If investing in the stockmarket were easy everyone will do it. I don't know if the CANSLIM investment methodology works every time, but I know that the book plus IBD is a good starting point for every beginner. I would suggest to buy the book then buy only the weekly IBD at the newstand and see if it makes sense. If it doesn't take the book back within 30 days. In the worst case scenario you lose $ 10 but I assure you that you'll get some interesting informations. It will be an eye opener on whatever you want to continue learning about the market. And no, if you buy the book I won't make a penny. My point is just that although nothing is free I think it's worth to give it a try.

    Market Education

    I have just started investing in common stocks. I owned MFunds and IRA, but this was new. This book explained in detail how the market works. Supply and demand, chart reading (and why it is so important), what growth stocks are and how to find the best ones. How to time the market, and why so many think it cannot be done. It is a sales pitch for IBD, I did subscribe and it was worth it. This will teach you the market from a fact based point of view.

    Why Would He Write This Book?

    If I knew as much about the market and had acquired the exhaustive database and had the experience, intelligence and stock market savvy that Bill O'Neil has, I'd keep it to myself and rule the world! Yet he's been willing to share his knowledge with us. His book 'How to Make Money in Stocks...' is a necessity along with the publication Investor's Business Daily. Follow the rules he outlines. However there still is room for your own individual interpretation. He teaches you how to fly an airplane, but in the end, you're the pilot alone in the cockpit. A must read as is IBD

    Great Book

    This is a great book, if you believe in Technical analysis. This method to investing is 40% of how Mr. O'Neil invests. He also takes into account the companies fundamentals, which he says is about 60% if his investment picture. He is one of the leading growth stock investors, so if you prefer value investing, you might want to read books by B. Graham or Warren Buffet. For those that belive in his method this book is extraordinary. It has helped me to improve my investment discipline tenfold. It has given me lots of confidence to succeed. I still have a lot to learn, but I have seen vast improvement over the last two years.
