Essential Stock Picking Strategies: What Works on Wall Street

The purpose of Essential Stock Picking Strategies is to provide you with unique insight into money managers. It is for readers who want to learn about the different investment styles and strategies of money managers who have made sound investment decisions over a significant period of time.

Author’s Introduction:

Still, maybe the opportunity exists right now and investors don’t see it. Maybe there are people out there who don’t need skyrocketing markets or the latest craze to post strong returns.

Maybe there are people who have done well and continue to do well regardless of market conditions. This leads me to the idea behind Essential Stock Picking Strategies: What Works on Wall Street.

This book is not to make these men and women out to be the best or necessarily the brightest; it is merely to show that consistency is the most important thing when it comes to investing. The idea is to illustrate that having strict investment principles and following a strict investment strategy is more important then finding the next best thing.

I wrote this book to give you a better understanding of what works on Wall Street, so that you can profit from good investment strategies and make money in both bull and bear markets.

I have chosen money managers who have solid track records and who have been in the money management business for some time. Most of them are names that you will not recognize, and there is a reason for that—a reason you will understand when you finish this book.

A great Wall Streeter once said, “Never confuse brains with a bull market.” I believe the people profiled in these chapters have the brains to be successful in both bull and bear markets and that these pages offer you the chance to profit from their brains.
