How to Make Money in Stocks

by William O'Neil


Investing is no longer exclusively for the rich; anyone can and should take advantage of the growth opportunities the stock market provides. Starting with just five stocks in Procter and Gamble when he was 21, William O'Neil went on to become the youngest person in history to buy a seat on the New York Stock Exchange by the time he was 30.

After founding his own brokerage firm and inventing the wildly successful 'CAN SLIM' investing strategy, O'Neil wanted to share his knowledge more widely. How to Make Money in Stocks demystifies chart-reading and market action, using the step-by-step CAN SLIM method to break technical analysis down into understandable pieces.

With a strong emphasis on common sense and sticking to proven successful strategies, O'Neil opens the world of investing up to anyone with the dedication to learn.
