Overview

One Up On Wall Street: How To Use What You Already Know To Make Money In The Market by Peter Lynch

More than one million copies have been sold of this seminal book on investing in which legendary mutual-fund manager Peter Lynch explains the advantages that average investors have over professionals and how they can use these advantages to achieve financial success.

America’s most successful money manager tells how average investors can beat the pros by using what they know. According to Lynch, investment opportunities are everywhere. From the supermarket to the workplace, we encounter products and services all day long. By paying attention to the best ones, we can find companies in which to invest before the professional analysts discover them. When investors get in early, they can find the “tenbaggers,” the stocks that appreciate tenfold from the initial investment. A few tenbaggers will turn an average stock portfolio into a star performer.

Lynch offers easy-to-follow advice for sorting out the long shots from the no-shots by reviewing a company’s financial statements and knowing which numbers really count. He offers guidelines for investing in cyclical, turnaround, and fast-growing companies.

As long as you invest for the long term, Lynch says, your portfolio can reward you. This timeless advice has made One Up on Wall Street a #1 bestseller and a classic book of investment know-how.

This is a very readable introduction to how Peter Lynch selects stocks. It discusses growth companies and turnaround companies.

Simplicity is the key when it comes to managing and investing money. That's why Peter Lynch's book is so great. He shows you simple ways to find and research stocks whether you have a little or a lot of money to invest. His investment strategies worked so well for me that I wanted to find more money to invest. That's where 'SIMPLE MONEY SOLUTIONS,' by NPR's Personal Finance Correspondent Nancy Lloyd came to the rescue. For years I've been listening to Bob Edwards talk with her on 'MORNING EDITION' and I had followed some of her advice on cutting my mortgage costs (even while interest rates were rising), squeezing every dollar out of my 401(k), IRA's and employer-paid benefits, using the latest tax breaks to save for my kids' college education and asking for (and getting) a raise. This book is a quick and pleasant read--like listening to Nancy discuss money on the air. I've been reading this book since February, when I saw her on 'GOOD MORNING AMERICA.' And as she promised, I've 'freed up money,' in my case $12,300 which I have now invested in Peter Lynch stocks. Both books are filled with great information that I haven't seen anywhere else. I'm pleased to say that I've gotten well over a thousand percent return on my $42 book investment!

Good book. It really shows the fact that there is no fool proof method for investing, but he does a good job of telling his methods.

This book has become a classic of personal investment literature for good reasons. For one thing, watching Lynch lampoon Wall Street and its cadre of institutional investors is rich fun. He is, perhaps, the foremost money manager in the U.S., thanks to the success of Fidelity¿s multibillion-dollar Magellan Fund. Lynch says that when E.F. Hutton speaks, the average investor ought to take a nap. Although this is an updated edition, most of the content dates to 'pre-bubble' 1989. As such, it offers haunting warnings about stocks with inflated price-to-earnings ratios. Warning to novice investors: Lynch is a Wharton grad who¿s been in the market since his college days and, as such, he tends to see stocks as simple and straightforward. Like the 'Oracle of Omaha,' Warren Buffett, he¿s a quintessential value investor who looks for undervalued companies in nuts-and-bolts industries. The difference, as Lynch puts it, is that he buys those companies¿ stocks, while Buffett buys those companies. We strongly recommend this book to those who govern their own portfolios.

The guy is writing a novel on the finanical markets and not teaching on how to be professional in investing. The book is too long and tedious in understanding his principals. Too vaive to read for a novice invester.
