Magnet® Investing was written both as a primer to investing as well as to formally introduce The Magnet® Stock Selection Process. The first half of the book walks you through self-discovery as an investor, has a short and clear chapter on bonds, and addresses the psychology of investing. The second half of the book shows you the screens I was actually using on Telescan® back then to find “Magnet” stocks. The early editions even have a trial disc of Telescan! Included in the book are charts of stocks I was trading for clients back then. This book introduced the concept of blending value, growth, and momentum styles way ahead of its time!
The Magnet Method of Investingwas written with nearly 25 years of experience in the business. Managing funds for several years, working with individual investors, speaking at dozens of conferences, hundreds of TV appearances, and meeting with many of the legendary investors of our era. I address the important and often misunderstood subjects of diversification and risk. Included again are more charts with stocks that I traded over the years and shares lessons that sometimes can only be learned by experience. I hope this book takes many of the lessons I learned over the years and provides investors with wisdom to grow- personally and their equity accounts.
