Got this book used a few weeks ago. Has basics some basics on financial terms, technical analysis, charts, indicators, warrants, options, elliott wave, etc. Nice book to have for one who want to use basic calulations to estimate a stock price and company worth. Worth the approx. $10 I paid for the used book. For those interested, Andrew McHattie has a few book out for warrants. John C Hull has a few books out on calculations about options, futures and other derivatives. Value Line Research Library is expensive (about $995 per year) but it has tons of material on stocks, warrants, options, etc. There are plenty of free stocks reports out there. Example, as a client, one has access to S&P reports. However, using some math and book keeping math once in a while is invaluable.
