Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Max Bowser is the editor/publisher of "The Bowser Report," which was started in the 1970s and is the only investment newsletter for stocks $3 a share or less. From 1973 to 1979, Max futher studied the stock market, refining his techniques for investing in low-priced equities. It was also during this period that he decided to concentrate on stocks selling for $3 a share or less. He then determined the format for the newletter, principally by mailing it to a select group across the country and considering their various suggestions. Although it initially had only 40 paid subscribers, today "The Bowser Report" is now in the top 3% circulation-wise, among the hundreds of investment newsletters.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.


It's not significant that we personally make money buying and selling the stocks we recommend in our monthly investment newsletter, "The Bowser Report", which is now in its third decade. There is a portion of the investing public that benefits from the stocks we deal with.

In fact, these low-priced equities appeal to many. That's the reason our newsletter is in the top 5% of the hundreds of advisory services -- circulationwise.

In our previous book, "Making Dollars With Pennies", we emphasized the method that we use in buying and selling what we call "minipriced stocks". We emphasized our Game Plan.

This book has a different purpose. Here we tell the story of individuals who have successfully invested in minipriced issues. These fourteen people testify to the fact that our Game Plan does work.

However, the first section of this book does briefly review our investment techniques. It also discusses other factors that affect investment decisions.

Additionally, we discuss microcap stocks with some professionals.

Nevertheless, the heart of the book is found in the stories of fourteen individuals. Who come from different walks in life. Who come from different geographic areas. And who share a love for small companies, that grow and make this country great.

R. Max Bowser

Format: Paperback
This book is a huge scam. It gives worthless testimonials that tell you nothing about how to buy and sell Penny Stocks. Additionally, it is potentially the worst written book I have ever read. Riddled with typographical errors it appears to me an opportunity to fill up pages so that the author can make money rather than offering any real decent product. Additionally, it seems that the majority of the other reviews of this book were written either by the author of this book or by one of his close friends because they are nowhere near the truth. If you buy this book, do not say you weren't warned.

Format: Paperback
First let me say that although at least two chapters in this book are repeated verbatim in Max Bowser's other book, "Making Dollars with Pennies" (chapters I identified are "Wannabe Ostracized? Buy Minipriced Stocks" and "Why does Merrill Lynch hate $2 Stocks?"), this is definitely not the same book in a different cover and you are really missing out on a true gem if you don't get this one.
In contrast to "Making Dollars with Pennies", which was more of a "how to" type of work, this book mainly consists of profiles of successful investors, which are for the most part excerpted from past editions of the Bowser Report (therefore, if you've been subscribing to the Bowser report for a while you've read practically everything in this book - still, it's refreshing to read it all bound up as a book). About two thirds of the profiles are of past or current subscribers who are following Bowser's "game plan" and doing well (although the figures are presented in a fuzzy manner). The remainder are various participants in the small cap stock market. Strangely, the one interview with a bona fide celebrity, Lou Dobbs of CNN, fell flat with me; he seemed out of his element.
The subscriber/"Winners" represent a broad cross section of Middle America, with all of the everyday problems of regular people (divorce, illness, unemployment or a general lack of money to invest). A significant portion of those profiled have a military background, and they are not necessarily of the World War II generation where military service was well nigh universal in men. Bowser himself retired from the military before starting his "Bowser Report" in the 1970s and one suspects that perhaps his subscriber base grew through word-of-mouth among military people.

First of all I would have rated this book only a quarter of one star but the lowest rating was one star. Now, after having said that I would like to say that there were a few penny stocks mentioned in this book but for the most part, stocks listed in this book were what I would categorize as low-priced stocks instead. How can you classify a stock trading as high as five dollars as a penny stock? In my mind, it's apples and oranges.
I also did not think that bringing up religion in this book was relevant and I saw it mentioned over and over.
I did like the Lou Dobbs interview and that was about it.
For newcomers interested in penny stock investing stay away from this book because it has no value as far as I'm concerned.
Sorry, Mr. Bowser but I returned the book for a credit.

Format: Paperback
In response to a Spotlight Review by a reader from Shoreline, WA, on February 28, 2004, who had comments about my book "Penny Stock Winners." In this critical review, the person was prinicipally dissatisfied because there were only a few penny stocks listed in the book. About this, we have two comments:
(1) There are two definitions of penny stocks. One is of a stock that sells for under $1.00. The other one, which is sanctioned by the Securities & Exchange Commission, is that any issue under $5.00 is a penny stock. The reviewer from Shoreline is only concerned with the stocks under $1.00.
(2) The book was not written with the intention of listing stocks. Instead, as the title indicates, it is the case histories of subscribers to our newsletter, "The Bowser Report," who have successfully followed our investment techniques. Those techniques are explained in detail in two other books I have written, both of which are available on Amazon and elsewhere--"Making Dollars with Pennies" and "Guaranteed Profits." And, furthermore, in each of these books, there is a coupon which entitles the reader to request a free sample copy of "The Bowser Report,"--the only newsletter published for stocks $3.00 a share or less--which lists many penny stocks each month.
All three of the books mentioned are published by Marathon International Book Co., Madison, IN, jwortham@seidata.com.
