Praise for The Magnet® Method of Investing

"Rather than encouraging the scatter shot approach of broad diversification, Jordan focuses on the rifle-shot Magnet® method of identifying a limited number of quality stocks to improve your chances of beating the market."
—Sam Stovall, Chief Investment Strategist, Standard & Poor's Equity Research

"Jordan Kimmel is one of the brightest market observers out there, and he is certainly a rising star that will be an important person to follow marketwise for many years."
—Michael Burke, Coeditor, Investors Intelligence, Inc.

"Jordan Kimmel's The Magnet® Method of Investing is an amazing, detailed, and intuitive book. I especially enjoyed Jordan's insights into diversification, the inefficient market, and identifying stocks that are in their 'sweet spot.' Jordan's writing style is also very straightforward and refreshing. He succeeds in taking complicated subjects and explaining them in an insightful way. This is simply an incredible book that is a must-read for both beginning and serious investors."
—Louis G. Navellier, Chairman and founder, Navellier & Associates, Inc.

"The Magnet® Method of Investing examines investing from a different perspective than many investors often see, offering a unique alternative to diversification. Jordan Kimmel has analyzed the methods of the best investors through time and introduces his robust stock selection process."
—David M. Darst, CFA, Managing Director and Chief Investment Strategist, Morgan Stanley Global Wealth Management Group

"We welcome Jordan's book as a valuable perspective on investing. The Wall Street Transcript applauds money managers like Jordan who explain their philosophies clearly, support them with research, and back them up with performance data. This is a great addition to any investing reading list."
—Andrew Pickup, Publisher and CEO, The Wall Street Transcript

"The Magnet® Method of Investing takes on the important issue of diversification, which has been oversold to Main Street. This is yet another example of the need to 'go against conventional thinking' if you want to achieve superior results."
—Stan Weinstein, Editor and Publisher, Global Trend Alert
