America is the world's leader in successful new, entrepreneurial companies. Many are in the computer, communications, and technology sectors. Others are in the medical, retail, and leisure and entertainment industries. As an investor, you should develop the skills and acquire the knowledge necessary to recognize and invest in the fast-growing, innovative companies that comprise our New America.
But how do you pick which stocks to buy and how can you significantly minimize the risk you take in buying stocks? And, most importantly, when do you sell your stocks? This book will answer all of those questions for you.
How to Make Money in Stocks gives you a simple, easy-to-use system called C-A-N S-L-I-M. The C-A-N S-L-I-M method is based on an exhaustive, ongoing analysis of every big winning stock each year since 1953. Each letter in C-A-N S-L-I-M stands for one of the seven key factors that all of these past super winners had in common. So, this is not some theoretical or academic method. This is based on how the stock market actually works.
How well does the C-A-N S-L-I-M method work? It is the best method devised and available for individual investors, whether new or experienced. More than 200,000 people have attended our free investment seminars and all-day paid workshops where the method is explained in detail. At each session, many people tell us how they made 50% or 100% in the previous year using the C-A-N S-L-I-M system.
David Ryan was the first to use the method in the U.S. Investing Championship and won three years in a row. He invested his own money in an actual account that was monitored by CPAs. He averaged over 100% per year and is now the portfolio manager of the New USA Mutual Fund.
Ced Moses entered the contest in 1991 using the method and came in first with a record-setting 379%. Lee Freestone, one of our associates, came in second that year with a 279% increase using C-A-N S-L-I-M. In 1994, Lee won it with a 234% increase. The Dow Jones Industrials that year increased 13.7%. There are numerous other examples, such as Dan Running of the University of Baltimore, who won the USA Today championship with a 115% increase in 1994; and Jay Plisco of Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y., who won the 1995 Fidelity Investment Challenge by using C-A-N S-L-I-M for an impressive 135% gain.
You may want to read this book a couple of times to get it all down, but anyone can learn to invest more successfully if he or she is willing to work at it. Any why shouldn't you learn to capitalize on and benefit financially from the most successful entrepreneurial companies in America?
How to Make Money in Stocks took me many years to write, and I've now been in the battlefield of the financial marketplace for 40 years. So this book can and should help you avoid most of the pitfalls all investors face in this treacherous arena.
In the long run, the U.S. market always goes up because businesses create new products, new services, and new technological inventions. It is the companies with the best new products and services that serve the most people that are always the top stock market winners.
In the last 100 years, the stock market has had 25 bear market declines. These were natural corrections of the previous bull market advances. Every time the market recovered and ultimately soared back into new high ground. So don't get sidetracked by the vast number of gloom and doomers. They rarely have made money for anyone. Besides, I don't ever remember meeting a successful pessimist.
In the early 1960s, William O'Neil & Co. created the first daily computer database on the stock market in the United States. In 1970, we created Datagraphs, an institutional investors' service. Today, more than 600 top institutional investors take a wide variety of our research services. We also publish Daily Graphs, a daily charting service provided weekly and designed for individual investors.
In 1983, I created the basic format for a new national daily business and financial newspaper, Investor's Business Daily. Investor's Business Daily made major advances in the quality and availability of vital, relevant information for all public investors and people in business. Sold nationally in every city, the newspaper is the fastest-growing newspaper in the United States. It has steadily taken share of market away from the century-old Wall Street Journal.
For those still uncertain if C-A-N S-L-I-M really works, William O'Neil & Co. was started solely with profits made in Syntex stock in 1963 and Investor's Business Daily was built and promoted with profits made in Pic N Save, Price Company, and Amgen.
My deepest appreciation and heartfelt thanks go out to those loyal hardworking souls who read, edited, worked on the graphics, criticized, typed, and retyped the endless changes made to this work. Some of those dedicated individuals are Anne Gerhard, Carolyn Hoffman, Jeannie Kihm, Jim Lan, Stanley Liu, Diane Marin, Milton Perrin, Kathy Russell, Lindee Shadrake, Kathy Sherman, Frank Spillers, and Susan Warfel. And, of course, a great amount of valuable assistance and numerous suggestions were provided by my wife, Fay, and Bill Sabin in the original edition and Philip Ruppel and the excellent McGraw-Hill staff in this second revised edition.
