Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Navellier builds a good case for this of investing"  (Bloomberg News, Wednesday 21st November 2007)

"A useful book on growth investing. . . Perhaps the greatest appeal of Mr. Navellier’s effort. . . is not that he offers a step-by-step guide to what he looks for in a growth company . . . The real joy comes from his frequent admonitions that Wall Street is not as rational as it would like to pretend, and in fact it is often driven either by fear — as it is these days — or by greed." (The New York Times)

"Navellier builds a good case for this style of investing. It might work for you." (Bloomberg News)

"A real contribution to investment literature. . . " (MarketWatch)

"No Greek letters or complex equations are necessary for understanding and even emulating Navellier. He focuses on eight straightforward factors for sorting the wheat from the chaff and has seen his leading newsletter, Emerging Growth, outperform the overall market nearly fourfold over 22 years. His mutual and institutional stock funds have performed handsomely too, with his Touchstone Large Cap Growth in the top 3% and 13% of similar funds over one and three years, respectively, according to Morningstar." (Dow Jones newswire)

"'One of the chief things I have learned is that numbers do not have emotions. . . They don't panic; they don't get greedy. They don't have an argument with their spouse or associates and make bad decisions as a result.' True enough — and for all investors, words to live by." (Registered Rep magazine)

"Navellier did a good job with the book and offers a nice introduction to screening. . . He should be given full credit for freely opening up his system to everyone." (The Kirk Report)

"This is a very helpful guide to building a strong portfolio without spending a great amount of time on it."  (Pensions World, January 2008)

“…the book offers a fundamental understanding of how to get rich using the best in growth investing strategies.” (Gulf Business, March)

The Little Book That Makes You Rich: A Proven Market-Beating Formula for Growth Investing 3.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

This book makes some convincing arguments based on sound principles, hence the three stars. It stresses the importance of free cash flow, it states that fundamental variables have a life span after which the stop working, and it acknowledges that analysts' forecasts may well be wrong (resulting in earnings surprises). See also "Stock Fundamentals On Trial: Do Dividend Yield, P/E and PEG Really Work?" for evidence that stock analysts are fallible and that company fundamentals 'sometimes' work (and sometimes don't).

I do, however, have a problem with books that provide "proven" formulas for stock market success. The fact that a formula has worked in the past is encouraging, but cannot be used as a sure predictor of the future. Many "proven" formulas have failed in the past 12-18 months. Regardless of the investment or trading strategy you pick, it is important to have a Plan B, a safety net, or a way to get out in the face of "The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable".

If this system works for you, that's great. But what if it doesn't? How will you know, when will you know, and what will you be able to do about it? Making money is one thing, but it may be just as important that you "DON'T LOSE MONEY!: (in the Stock Markets)".
