THE NATIONAL BESTSELLING BOOK THAT EVERY INVESTOR SHOULD
Peter Lynch is America's number-one money manager.
His mantra: Average investors can become experts in their
own field and can pick winning stocks as effectively as Wall
Street professionals by doing just a little research.
in a new introduction written specifically for this edition
of One Up on Wall Street, Lynch gives his take on the
incredible rise of Internet stocks, as well as a list of
twenty winning companies of high-tech '90s. That many of
these winners are low-tech supports his thesis that amateur
investors can continue to reap exceptional rewards from
mundane, easy-to-understand companies they encounter in
their daily lives.
Investment opportunities abound for the
layperson, Lynch says. By simply observing business
developments and taking notice of your immediate world --
from the mall to the workplace -- you can discover
potentially successful companies before professional
analysts do. This jump on the experts is what produces
"tenbaggers," the stocks that appreciate tenfold or more and
turn an average stock portfolio into a star performer.
former star manager of Fidelity's multibillion-dollar
Magellan Fund, Lynch reveals how he achieved his spectacular
record. Writing with John Rothchild, Lynch offers
easy-to-follow directions for sorting out the long shots
from the no shots by reviewing a company's financial
statements and by identifying which numbers really
count. He explains how to stalk tenbaggers and lays out the
guidelines for investing in cyclical, turnaround, and
Lynch promises that if you ignore
the ups and downs of the market and the endless speculation
about interest rates, in the long term (anywhere from five
to fifteen years) your portfolio will reward you. This
advice has proved to be timeless and has made One Up on
Wall Street a number-one bestseller. And now this
classic is as valuable in the new millennium as ever.
