This book with green cover is only slightly different from the one with orange cover. The differences are-
1) there is a quiz at the end to test your knowledge of CANSLIM
2) there are more recent charts of stocks which were hits and picked around March 2009 as part of William O'Neil's institutional service. These are stocks like Priceline, CERN, NFLX etc.
3) there is a CD attached to the back cover about a trial of one of their services.
All in all i don't think there is a need to get the latest book if you already have the book with orange cover.
At the beginning of the book you will see the price charts of the greatest winning stocks of the past 100 years. They are marked with notes to show you what proper bases look like and what a stock looks like coming out of a cup with handle formation. You will see the difference between a strong chart and a weak chart.Read more ›
The only difference between this book (basically, 5th Edition) and the 4th edition (orange cover) is the "Bonus Chapter" at the end - 45 pages of test charts and questions. In my opinion, not worth buying if you already own the 4th Edition. Yes, the DVD is also included, but it's only maybe 15 minutes long and tells you how to use their newspaper and site. Once again, not worth paying extra for... I'm sure their investor.com site has a similar video available. The 4th/5th edition include several additions over the prior editions, and I highly recommend buying one of them to replace the 1st-3rd edition books.
When I started learning O'Neil's strategy in 1993, there was only the newspaper. Then, he added one seminar ($800), which I took in 1999 and which helped me understand his system and make (and keep) 300% in 6 months (9/1999-3/2000). Today, there are so many options to learn... Investors.com, his several books, several different levels of seminars, Meetup user groups, etc. Ironically, this book pretty much covers everything that's taught through the other mediums - you just need to read it carefully and thoroughly and repeatedly. From what people have told me, the one medium which teaches skills not mentioned in the book is the Chart reading seminar ($3000), where you learn advanced chart reading skills.
Learning to trade using CANSLIM (i.e. the O'Neil method) does changes your life, but you need to be ready to spend several years to learn the skill.
If I had to summarize the CANSLIM method in a single sentence, I would say that it is a technique that allows individual investors to piggyback on the ebb and flow of institutional money. O'Neil strongly believes that markets rise and fall because of the daily collective decisions of thousands of domestic and foreign financial institutions (mutual funds, banks, insurance companies, hedge funds, etc.) moving billions of dollars around in search of growth. Compared to these corporations, individual retail investors have no influence. Also, institutional investors are much better informed about future trends than you or I can be. It follows that we as individual investors can greatly reduce the chance element in stock selection by focussing only on institutional-quality companies currently in favour. Avoid penny stocks.Read more ›
