What makes this book's plan so special? Well, most of what the book recommends is actually nothing new or earth- shattering. The book recommends buying low and selling high, seeking out companies who are leaders in their respected businesses and loved by their customers, not putting all of your investments in the stock market, etc. These are all sound strategies for investing, and many others have recommended exactly the same things. Where the book moves in different directions from conventional wisdom is when it offers advice on investing in things you love and when it offers advice on how to allocate your income among different categories. The first piece of advice is to invest in what you are most passionate about. The author's theory is that the things you love and enjoy most are going to make great choices for investing because, if your heart is already in the right place, then great things will follow. This is different from what most financial professionals recommend, and it isn't necessarily the soundest advice on making the best investments.Read more ›
She keenly notes the possible effects that can result from the asymmetrical knowledge that is held by various investors and how one should be cautious when buying a stock from somebody who knows significantly more about a company that one does oneself. She observes that the stock market is not usually a positive sum game. One investor wins and one loses. One sells high and the other buys high. One sells low and the other buys low. This does not mean that either will lose money, but it does mean that one of them PROBABLY bought at the wrong time and the other PROBABLY sold at the wrong time, or vice versa. If one knows significantly more about the company in question than you do, you should always suspect that they will be on the winning side of the equation, ergo, maximizing knowledge of a company is critical, always.
This is just a tiny sliver of what Ms. Pace goes over in her book. It is loaded with information that is critical for any investor to have. Whether you are new to the game or an old hand, this book will bestow some great insights upon you, should you opt to read it carefully. Not only that, unlike most investment books, it's a page turner!
Well done Natalie Pace!
Pace states, "Too many people have fear around money. I call it investing with stomach acid, instead of your intellect. When you trade with fear, the odds are that you will buy high and sell low". Pace promotes faith over fear.
Chapter One is about getting educated. This book would not have been possible if Pace would not have been in a financial mess after a divorce which eventually led her to a certified financial planner with impressive credentials. However at that time a recession was in progress and Pace had nagging doubts about the information that the certified financial planner had provided. She did not sign any documents with him and took some time to get educated on P/Es, PEGs, Debt/Equity ratios and 10-Ks of her favorite companies. The nagging doubt is defined by Pace as a heart begging for more information. When Pace finally did invest, she tripled her money in four short months and has since had extraordinary gains in the market. After personal success, her friends who had lost half or more of their stock portfolios due to either a husband or broker's bad guidance begged for her help. Pace's stock report card provides a basic and simple way to review some key elements of a company.
Chapter Two is about getting involved. This chapter contained a very powerful message for women (married and single).Read more ›
