FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BUSINESSWEEK, USA TODAY, AND WALL STREET JOURNAL BUSINESS BESTSELLER HOW TO MAKE MONEY IN STOCKS!

Simple-to-follow strategies for making—and keeping—profits in today's perilous stock market

More than 80 million investors lost 50 to 80 percent of their savings in the recent stock market crash. Investor's Business Daily publisher William J. O'Neil, however, was one of the first to see—and warn investors about—the dangers inherent in what had been, up to that point, a historic bull market run. Those who followed his counsel were able to sidestep devastating losses and emerge with their sizable bull market profits largely intact.

In The Successful Investor, O'Neil steps up to tell all investors how they can make money and, more important, avoid losses in up markets, down markets, and everything in between. Showing how mistakes made in the recent market collapse were amazingly similar to those made in previous down cycles, O'Neil reveals simple steps investors can follow to avoid costly mistakes and:

  • Buy only the best stocks at only the best times
  • Follow a market-tested 3-to-1 Profit-and-Loss Percentage Plan
  • Know when to sell for the biggest possible profit
  • Recognize chart patterns that presage enormous market moves
  • Manage a portfolio over time to maximize its returns

William O'Neil has succeeded in virtually every market environment by following a stable, nonemotional investment plan. In his latest book, O'Neil explains how anyone can follow that plan to become a profitable long-term investor, regardless of market tides or turns.

The Successful Investor will bring reason and welcome relief to all investors buffeted and bewildered by the perils and uncertainty of today's stock market.

William J. O¿Neil, founder of Investor¿s Business Daily (which he cites constantly in his book), provides an excellent how-to tour of his CAN SLIM investing approach. The method makes eminently good sense if you do what it says, when it says. Most investors risk failure, not because their systems are flawed, but because people are. O¿Neil makes it clear: to be an investor, you must put forth enormous dedication, discipline, emotional fortitude and humility, and you need a sound strategy, such as CAN SLIM. The author may make investing look a tad too easy, though the charting he recommends is obviously going to take some time to accomplish and understand. But he pulls no other punches. His advice is knowledgeable and straightforward. He tells you what to do, and how to move ahead wisely and profitably. We think investors should read and study this honest, worthwhile book that summarizes the essentials of one of the latter twentieth century¿s most popular investing systems.
