Meet the Author

WILLIAM J. O'NEIL has distinguished himself as a champion of the individual investor by providing them with innovative, sound, and effective tools and methods necessary for investment success. His investment books, including the bestselling How to Make Money in Stocks and The Successful Investor, outline in detail the CAN SLIM investment research tools that enabled Mr. O'Neil to buy his own seat on the New York Stock Exchange in 1963 and start his own institutional investment firm, William O'Neil + Co., Incorporated, which today services over 500 institutional investment organizations. The publication he designed and created in 1984, Investor's Business Daily, brings sophisticated stock market data to the investing masses on a daily basis, and its Web site, investors.com, informs and educates individual investors on the basic principles of sound investing.

GIL MORALES, a 1981 graduate of Stanford University, began his career in the industry as a stockbroker with Merrill Lynch in 1991. He later moved to PaineWebber in 1994 where he quickly became one of that firm's top producers, and was recruited to join William O'Neil + Co., Inc. in 1997 by William J. O'Neil himself. He currently serves as Vice President and Chief Market Strategist at William O'Neil + Co., Inc. where he also functions as an internal portfolio manager responsible for managing a portion of the firm's equity assets.
