Where do you start when you want to begin learning about securities and stock investing? This book.
I've read and studied this book for about 2 or 3-months now and I gotta say that I've learned so much from it. I'm fairly new to securities investing and this book gives a great start for beginners and I'm sure helps sharpen the whits of seasoned professionals.
It touches base on how to analyze different companies based on different industries; different KPIs based on the financial statements; how to analyze companies in general; and more! Not every company is the same and there are many indicators of strong companies and weak companies. These indicators also vary by industry and time has proven that there is not any one indicator that proves a company is better than another - you must fully research each company before making a purchasing decision.
I've recommended this book to some friends of mine and would highly suggest anyone to give this book a shot. Plenty of information in this that will keep me busy for the next year or so.
