Overview

Investing With Giants

Investing With Giants is actually two books in one. First and foremost, it is one of today's most concise yet comprehensive guidebooks on the wisdom of investing in blue-chip stocks and focusing your investment strategy on companies and their strengths, as opposed to technical trends and chatroom hearsay. It provides you with the hands-on information you need to glean valuable information from annual reports, understand key economic indicators and how they affect individual stocks, and construct a balanced stock portfolio designed to provide you with long-term growth and stability.

In addition, Investing With Giants is a riveting tale of twentieth-century America and how ten of this nation's most powerful corporations have prospered-and created fortunes for their investors-by adapting to changing times, forming profitable alliances, and quickly responding to the changing realities of the marketplace. It compares and contrasts their stories, allowing you to gain a clearer understanding of the essentials for long-term success and then apply that understanding to your own investment research and decisions.

The result is one of today's most entertaining and user-friendly guides for building wealth in the twenty-first century. Complete with charts, figures, and key terms defined to ensure complete clarity, this commonsense book provides you with:
* The latest technological resources for gathering detailed company information
* The skills needed to use Value Line tables to help determine overvalued versus undervalued stocks
* Seven basic rules you should always keep in mind when considering a stock
* Techniques for using a company's annual report to determine its true financial position
* Key economic indicators-what they mean to the markets and why they are important to you

Long after the latest ballyhooed Wall Street stock-of-the-moment comes and goes, the solid, blue-chip market leaders will still be providing their investors with proven value, lowered volatility, and exceptional long-term performance. Investing With Giants shows you how to look beyond the hype to build a portfolio based on strength, safety, and predictability by investing in stocks and companies that will reward you for decades-not just days.
