by Charles D. Kirkpatrick, CMT
From the Back Cover
“The author introduces an investing methodology with proven results and easily applied unequivocal decision making. Particularly impressive is the way he includes a selling discipline, not just a buying discipline. This book is a must for any concerned investor.” –Richard Arms, Analyst, Author, and Inventor of The Arms Index
Over the past 25 years, Charles D. Kirkpatrick’s exclusive stock-picking technique has outperformed the S&P 500’s performance by a whopping 7.7 times. That’s right: If you’d invested $10,000 in the S&P 500, you’d have $130,000 now…but if you’d followed Kirkpatrick’s published picks, you’d have $1,000,000! If that’s not amazing enough, Kirkpatrick’s system is remarkably easy to use. In this book, he teaches you all you need to put it to work in your portfolio!
Kirkpatrick reveals why an active strategy based on relative stock rankings is the surest route to profit, and how just a few pieces of publicly available information enable you to create rankings that virtually guarantee exceptional performance. You will learn how to use his techniques to organize stocks into a portfolio that maximizes returns while reducing risk…uncover trigger points that tell you when to buy and sell…and systematically protect yourself against bad stocks and bad markets.
- Why the conventional wisdom about investing is flat-out wrong. What’s wrong with diversification, “random walks,” and the efficient markets hypothesis?
- Don’t even try to predict the markets: you don’t have to! Discover what the markets are actually doing: then react fast, with discipline.
- Invest the intelligent way: with “relatives.” Measure what really matters: a stock’s relative strength and growth compared with the rest.
- Start using the market’s reliable investment triggers. Recognize what to buy, what to sell, and when to make your moves.
- Mitigate the risks associated with broad market declines. Intelligently decide when to move assets into cash.
