I’ve been reading books on trading stocks, futures, and options for more than 40 years. Indeed, I’ve even written close to a dozen books on Wall Street. But not one of them prepared me for what I learned in the first two weeks as a pit trader on the floor of one of the Chicago exchanges. The theory is one thing; the reality of risking your money is quite another.
Not long ago, when I glanced through the pages of a number of investment books at my local bookstore, I noticed how useless most of the well-meaning advice was for the beginning investor. The books told the reader to diversify, as if that were the answer to finding the best stock.
This, in fact, is known as the “spaghetti” technique, in which you throw bunch of wet spaghetti against a wall to see what sticks. Similar investment books sang the praises of mutual funds or dollar cost averaging, in which you willy-nilly keep buying regardless of the wisdom of your stock selection.
This latter piece of advice is given in hopes that the market will subsequently rise. What about not purchasing a bad stock in the first instance? There are a variety of ways in which stocks tell their stories. One is when a formerly quiet company suddenly experiences overwhelming share volume.
There are other technical clues. But a stock’s story may be highlighted in something as simple as excessive insider buying by company officers and directors. These individuals, who are closest to the company, are often the ones who buy and sell significant blocks of shares just before a market-moving event.
There are ways to read the footprints of the insiders for those in the know. One such good indication is worth a dozen guesses. When you think about it, you need only a few good stocks to make a significant amount of money.
