His method is mostly based on technical analysis, with strong earnings growth as a supporting foundation. The basic idea is buy the leaders in the leading groups with the best earnings as they advance in price. That is the whole book summed up in one line. You can mail your checks to me instead "pay to the order of" Cash. Seriously, you might earn some cash reading this book, just be prepared for some ad's and fluff mixed in with the good.
The raw material might be worth four stars to new traders/investors, but I have removed one star for all the shameless advertising of their website, and it is long winded in several places without any added value.
If you can wade through all the extra stuff, you will certainly find some useful information here. I most appreciated the selling rules, which account for 2 of my 3 stars, and that is only one chapter.
I quickly learned the difference between fundamental and technical analysis and thus the pitfalls of technical analysis.
The chart stuff ( heavily emphasized in this book) was not clearly explained, but equally troubling is that this was intended to be the main reason to buy a stock. This misguided me into forgetting that successful stock investing is about investing in good companies at reasonable prices.
This book introduced light fundamental analysis, but beyond that, recommended troubling practices (all as a result of technical analysis) such as selling for 20% returns (does not explain well when NOT to do this ), listening to investing news (after a while you begin to realize how much propaganda is out there... But of course he wants you to subscribe to his IBD For $360/year)
I instead recommend the intelligent investor by Benjamin graham ( warren buffet's teacher) and one up on Wall Street by Peter lynch. They do explain fundamental stock investing quite well and the strategy makes sense, instead of here feeling like it's all so simple as long as we subscribe to his site.
Save your money, do your research, and remember... You're investing with a lot of money. You should understand your own investment strategy!
Other than that, the best book for longs (and to an extend shorts) you can buy!
The book start with a (not too long) introduction with very useful tips. Sharp, and too the point. Very promising, and as a veteran trader I have to say I agree with most of his notes. He mentions in bullets why most traders are losing money. Good points, all of them. Then the book moves forward and present over 100 Charts, with comments and explanations in the body of the chart. EXCELLENT STUFF. one point of note, some of these charts are from tens of years ago, even before WW2. So although they are old, and the world changed and changes, it's clear after about 20-30 charts that the patterns actually repeats and should be followed to this day. The book then touches Theory in a light way, interesting and mind-opening. Even experienced traders can learn something here, and the book fits beginners and advanced traders where they be. I can only recommend it and add it to the trader's start list along with the books of Alexander Elder.
Other than that the book came new, on time and properly packed, as I expected. 5 stars here.
