Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Countering assumptions about the end of the Internet boom, investment consultant Cohan advocates investing in the Internet--but with a careful strategy for finding long-term players. Based on research on several hundred companies, the book offers seven methods for evaluating Internet stocks, including looking at different levels of market information, evaluating networked businesses and understanding different types of Internet ventures. Cohan (e-Profit) makes his case convincingly, though his strategies are best for more experienced investors. Illus.

From Library Journal

Cohan (e-Profit: High-Payoff Strategies for Capturing the E-Commerce Edge), CNBC commentator and consultant in high-tech investments, offers concepts in this primer that investors should consider when investing in high-tech Internet stocks. He examines the factors that go into Internet investing by looking at how investors choose stocks in general and tech stocks in particular. The author also thoroughly covers such important areas as the way Internet companies operate with regard to the state of the art in Internet technology; vehicles for the Internet (it is not just the computer but cable television and wireless communication devices such as the Palm and wireless telephone); and the investor's potential for success as a leader in innovation and marketing. This timely, well-written, but technical book (supported with graphs and tables) will appeal to investors, investment professionals, and those in academia. A good choice for large public, academic, and some special libraries. Steven J. Mayover, Philadelphia
