America’s most successful money manager tells how average investors can beat the pros by using what they know. According to Lynch, investment opportunities are everywhere. From the supermarket to the workplace, we encounter products and services all day long. By paying attention to the best ones, we can find companies in which to invest before the professional analysts discover them. When investors get in early, they can find the “tenbaggers,” the stocks that appreciate tenfold from the initial investment. A few tenbaggers will turn an average stock portfolio into a star performer.
Lynch offers easy-to-follow advice for sorting out the long shots from the no-shots by reviewing a company’s financial statements and knowing which numbers really count. He offers guidelines for investing in cyclical, turnaround, and fast-growing companies.
As long as you invest for the long term, Lynch says, your portfolio can reward you. This timeless advice has made One Up on Wall Street a #1 bestseller and a classic book of investment know-how.
Develop a Winning Investment Strategy—with Expert Advice from “The Nation’s #1 Money Manager.” Peter Lynch’s “invest in what you know” strategy has made him a household name with investors both big and small.
An important key to investing, Lynch says, is to remember that stocks are not lottery tickets. There’s a company behind every stock and a reason companies—and their stocks—perform the way they do. In this book, Peter Lynch shows you how you can become an expert in a company and how you can build a profitable investment portfolio, based on your own experience and insights and on straightforward do-it-yourself research.
In Beating the Street, Lynch for the first time explains how to devise a mutual fund strategy, shows his step-by-step strategies for picking stock, and describes how the individual investor can improve his or her investment performance to rival that of the experts.
There’s no reason the individual investor can’t match wits with the experts, and this book will show you how.
Many investors, including some with substantial portfolios, have only the sketchiest idea of how the stock market works. The reason, say Lynch and Rothchild, is that the basics of investing—the fundamentals of our economic system and what they have to do with the stock market—aren’t taught in school. At a time when individuals have to make important decisions about saving for college and 401(k) retirement funds, this failure to provide a basic education in investing can have tragic consequences.
For those who know what to look for, investment opportunities are everywhere. The average high school student is familiar with Nike, Reebok, McDonald’s, the Gap, and The Body Shop. Nearly every teenager in America drinks Coke or Pepsi, but only a very few own shares in either company or even understand how to buy them. Every student studies American history, but few realize that our country was settled by European colonists financed by public companies in England and Holland—and the basic principles behind public companies haven’t changed in more than three hundred years.
In Learn to Earn, Lynch and Rothchild explain in a style accessible to anyone who is high school age or older how to read a stock table in the daily newspaper, how to understand a company annual report, and why everyone should pay attention to the stock market. They explain not only how to invest, but also how to think like an investor.
En este clásico de las finanzas, con más de un millón de ejemplares vendidos en todo el mundo, el mítico inversor Peter Lynch describe su método para alcanzar el éxito financiero.
Según Lynch, los inversores no profesionales pueden ganar a los profesionales usando simplemente la información a su alcance, dado que las oportunidades de inversión están en todas partes. A lo largo del día, desde el supermercado hasta nuestro lugar de trabajo, nos encontramos con un sinfín de productos y servicios. Y si prestamos atención a los mejores estaremos sobre la pista de cuáles son las empresas en las que invertir antes de que los inversores profesionales lo descubran. Si los inversores se adelantan pueden dar con las anheladas 10-baggers, el término usado en Wall Street para las acciones con las que se ha ganado diez veces el dinero invertido. Unas pocas 10-baggers bastan para convertir una cartera de acciones correcta en una cartera estrella.
Asimismo, Lynch ofrece consejos fáciles de inversión a partir de la revisión del estado financiero de una empresa y nos enseña a descubrir los números que realmente cuentan a la hora de tomar la decisión de invertir. Si inviertes en el largo plazo, dice Lynch, tu cartera te recompensará. Este consejo intemporal ha hecho de Un paso por delante de Wall Street un número uno en ventas y un libro ya clásico en su disciplina.
