Overview

Stephen Leeb has been a top-ranked market timer for the last five years. He's won stock-picking contests sponsored by the Wall Street Journal and Forbes, and his portfolios routinely score in the top echelons of investment professionals. How does he do it year after year? In Market Timing for the Nineties, Stephen Leeb explains his phenomenally successful system, a system that performs in bull or bear markets, in good times and bad. Market Timing for the Nineties boils stock performance down to one simple principle: Stocks depend on sustainable economic growth. Leeb explains the interrelationships between the market and the economy, and tells how to apply this knowledge for long-term investment success. His elegantly simple yet highly effective investment system, based on five key economic indicators, allows the small investor, the institutional money manager, and all those in between to approach investments with the same market tools that are behind his own exceptional track record. Leeb's five key indicators are commodity prices, unemployment, interest rates, money supply, and price-to-earnings ratios. In successive chapters of Market Timing for the Nineties, Leeb spells out in plain English why each indicator is important and how to use readily assessable data effectively. Leeb presents the big picture, showing how all five indicators fit together into a coherent strategy for stock market success. Market Timing for the Nineties embodies a proven investment strategy - showing the investor how to master the long-term trends that move the market and avoid getting caught in daily or weekly vacillations. Stephen Leeb is the editor of Personal Finance, which has 115,000 subscribers, one of the highest circulations of any investment advisory in America. A subscriber following his trading recommendations would have made more than 20 percent a year for the past five years! Stephen Leeb's few commonsense rules can make anyone a better stock picker and will put you man

Rated the #1 market timer by the Hurlbut Financial Digest for the past four years, expert investor Stephen Leeb shows readers how they can learn to evaluate economic indicators and profit from the stock market. "A savvy investment advisor with an excellent record for picking winners."--USA Today.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Going well beyond so-called ``technical'' stock-market analysis, acclaimed market-timer Leeb argues in this occasionally convoluted guide that share-price movement is governed by specific, variable but identifiable elements in the economy itself. Along with inflation and corporations' underlying quality and value, Leeb--assisted by Utility Forecast editor Conrad--looks to an interplay of commodity prices, unemployment figures, interest rates, money-supply trends and price/earnings ratios of specific stocks for ``a sure-fire indication of what stocks will do over the next 12 months.'' The authors' ``buy'' and ``sell'' signals reflect their conclusion that ``stock prices are always based on expectations of future growth, not what's happening now.'' In the end, after explaining in a numbingly complex formula how to prosper in all kinds of markets, Leeb recommends buying quality household stocks like General Electric--provided one's timing is right. $25,000 ad/promo; author tour.
