Jim Cramer's Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World
James Cramer
April 2005
From Publishers Weekly
After telling the story of his own trading days in Confessions of a Street Addict, Cramer appeases fans hoping for advice on how to duplicate his success with their own investment portfolios. But not without some strong caveats: his approach requires devoting at least an hour a week to educating yourself about each stock you own. But since most pros are "rank amateurs themselves," anyone willing to do the work should consider getting in. Cramer breaks down the fundamentals of his investment approach, built on the twin principles of diversification and speculation: while most of your portfolio should contain reliables like oil, financials and blue-chip companies, 20% percent of your money should go toward a slightly riskier bet on a company's future ("owning a stock is a bet on the future, not the past"). He also explains...

Big Picture Investing: How, When, and Why the Stock Market Moves: 14 Lectures (Portable Professor Series)
Peter Navarro
May 2004
Compact Disc

Investing for Cowards
Fred Siegel
Nov 2000
From Publishers Weekly
Siegel, portfolio manager and host of a New Orleans radio talk show about money, fervently believes that individuals can navigate the stock market. To this end, he addresses basic stock market principles, bonds, annuities, financial advisers and more. While many readers will enjoy Siegel's light style, he offers little detailed information. Biased toward stocks, he exaggerates the disadvantages of mutual funds. Siegel's advice on finding professional help and avoiding popular schemes--such as the Cook financial program--is sound, but beginning investors could find more objective, in-depth books. Whether Siegel's local following can boost his national appeal is uncertain. Illus. $100,000 promo; 12-city author tour. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc.

Trimtabs Investing
Charles Biderman
Apr 2005
Book Description
Whether you are an investment professional managing billions of dollars or an individual investor with a small nest egg, TrimTabs Investing shows you how to beat the major stock market averages with less risk.  This groundbreaking book begins by comparing the stock market to a casino in which the house (public companies and the insiders who run them) buys and sells shares with the players (institutional and individual investors).  TrimTabs Investing argues that stock prices are primarily a function of liquidity—the amount of shares available for purchase and the amount of money available to buy them—rather than fundamental value.  Finally, it outlines the building blocks of liquidity theory and explains how you can use them to predict the direction of the stock market.


How to Make Money in Stocks: A Winning System in Good Times or Bad
William J. O'Neil
June 2002
Book Review
From the school of unemotional investing comes the classic How to Make Money in Stocks, by Wall Street analyst and publisher William O'Neil. Readers new to securities will find it an excellent primer, one that relies on time-honored indicators such as quarterly earnings, market capitalization, and daily indexes. O'Neil's study of winning stocks stretches back to the 1960s, and he shares his insights here, describing what characterizes a growth stock, when to cut your losses (at 7 or 8 percent, no more), and how to spot a market top.

The techniques in How to Make Money in Stocks are hardly revolutionary, but therein lies their strength, as O'Neil claims his is "a winning system in good times or bad." Investors interested in Net stocks might be disappointed--the author's first rule is that a company must show a pattern of...

Beating the Street: The Best-Selling Author of (One up on Wall Street) Shows You how to Pick Winning Stocks and Mutual Funds
Peter S. Lynch
May 1994
From Publishers Weekly
Until retiring in 1990, Lynch ( One Up on Wall Street ) was manager of the spectacularly successful Fidelity Magellan Fund. Here he recalls with self-deprecating humor and disarming candor how he went about choosing winning stocks (and missing a few) for the $12 billion fund, which, during one five-year period in the 1980s, earned investors a 300% return. Lynch strongly favors stocks over other investment vehicles but insists that "investigative" research into a corporation's prospects, including credit checks and visits to the firm's installations, is essential. "Focus on companies, not the stocks," he stresses, adding that on this basis limited partnerships, banks and even S & Ls can be sound investments. Lynch's reputation and business writer Rothchild's deft touch should yield big sales for this inside story....

The New Laws of the Stock Market Jungle
Michael J. Panzner
June 2004
Book Description
Preface In the forest, there are small creatures that move almost effortlessly beneath the ghostly pall of a moonless night, slipping through dense vegetation, a jumble of hazards and traps, and a menacing cabal of hungry predators poised to pounce on the weak and the unwary. Instinctively, they remain attuned to the threats posed by those who are bigger, stronger, or more ruthless than they are. In true Darwinian fashion, they manage to survive and thrive, despite seemingly poor odds. Why? Because like successful investors in today's stock market, they understand the laws of the jungle--as well as the sights, sounds, and subtle nuances that signal danger and opportunity--and they act accordingly, making the most of their unique individual strengths and evolutionary advantages. The New Laws of the Stock...
