The Little Book of Investing Like the Pros: Five Steps for Picking Stocks Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
As you have probably noticed, there are quite a few investing books out there. Many of them were written by some of the world's greatest investors. So, why should you listen to our book?
Stock investing is more prevalent than ever, whether directly or indirectly through brokerage accounts, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), mutual funds, or retirement plans. Despite this, the vast majority of individual investors have no training on how to pick stocks. And, until now, there hasn't been a truly accessible, easy-to-understand resource available to help them. The Little Book of Investing Like the Pros was written to fill this void.
We believe the simplicity and accessibility of our stock picking framework is truly unique. Using real-world examples and actual Wall Street models used by the pros, we teach you how to pick stocks in a highly accessible, step-by-step manner. Our goal is straightforward - to impart the skills necessary for finding high-quality stocks while protecting your portfolio with risk management best practices. Our practical approach is designed to help demystify the investing process, which can be intimidating. This training will help set you apart from others who are largely flying blind.

literacy". In fact, the book, while itself competent, demands an enormous amount of time and dedication for these same untrained and financially illiterate investors and therefore is unlikely realistically to meet the needs of its intended audience. It is regrettable that the authors make no attempt to compare "Investing like the Pros" to other works seeking the same objective. Why, for example, would a financial novice not seek instead simply to subscribe to a well known investment letter such as "Value Line"?
The authors Pearl & Rosenbaum come from an investment banking background and previously wrote a book called “Investment Banking: Valuation, Leveraged Buyouts, and Mergers and Acquisitions”. Some of the book discusses event driven opportunities that an investment banker would have an intellectual edge investing in (e.g. mergers, spin-offs, LBO’s, bankruptcy turn-arounds, etc).
The most helpful part of the book was the Word and Excel templates the authors use to organize their process. I went to their website and downloaded the templates and they greatly help in streamlining your research. Again, this book’s value was not in the nuts and bolts but in providing a framework to put it all together.
What I like the most is that the book is not a gimmick. It contains no trading tricks or get rich quick shortcuts. The authors provide the tools and a method for you to begin your research and the rest is up to you.
Now, just to be clear, I'm not saying it's a bad book. The investment approach presented by Mr. Pearl is certainly legit. But as mentioned above, it's geared for investment pros, not the small-time investor. And it's not that the subject is beyond the understanding of retail investors. Mr. Pearl does a fine job of explaining things. But I don't think very many, if any, retail investors would have the time, discipline, patience, or desire to follow the extremely time-consuming, complicated, and tedious process. There's a phrase that became popular a few years back called, "getting into the weeds." That's what this book does. If you thought Fundamental Analysis was tedious enough just looking at Financial Statements and Financial Metrics, wait till you read this book.
Every college student interested in banking should study this religiously. It provides a great foundation for LBO’s and the way in which the big banks work. Debt, Equity, M&A, exc.
