The Successful Investor: What 80 Million People Need to Know to Invest Profitably and Avoid Big Lossesby
William J. O'Neil
More than 80 million investors lost 50 to 80 percent of their savings
in the recent stock market crash. Investor's Business Daily publisher
William J. O'Neil, however, was one of the first to see--and warn
investors about--the dangers inherent in what had been, up to that
point, a historic bull market run. Those who followed his counsel were
able to sidestep devastating losses and emerge with their sizable bull
market profits largely intact.
In The Successful Investor, O'Neil
steps up to tell all investors how they can make money and, more
important, avoid losses in up markets, down markets, and everything in
between. Showing how mistakes made in the recent market collapse were
amazingly similar to those made in previous down cycles, O'Neil reveals
simple steps investors can follow to avoid costly mistakes and:
O'Neil has succeeded in virtually every market environment by following
a stable, nonemotional investment plan. In his latest book, O'Neil
explains how anyone can follow that plan to become a profitable
long-term investor, regardless of market tides or turns.
The Successful Investor will
bring reason and welcome relief to all investors buffeted and
bewildered by the perils and uncertainty of today's stock market.

A reader of one of my earlier discussions asked-"Have you ever tried out
the ideas outlined in your book?" My reply was to the effect that the
ideas were tried out first, and the book written afterward. Any earner
who earns more than he can spend is automatically an investor. It
doesn't matter in the slightest whether he wants to be or not, or even
whether he realizes that he is investing. Storing present purchasing
power for use in the future is investing, no matter in what form it's
put away. Some popular and common forms include money itself, government
bonds, savings bank deposits, real estate, commodities, securities of
all types, diamonds and where and when it's legal, gold.
