The current explosion of the stock market is unprecedented by any period in its history. Since
the 1980s, the number of American households that own common stock has risen from
below 20 percent to just under half. And, this does not include households that hold stock
within their retirement plans or other indirect means. A significant portion of this growth is a
direct result of the proliferation of information available to the public through such new forums
as the Internet. Any information without explanation, however, is useless....
This book will be different.
Thousands of books have already been written about the stock mar-
ket, many of them technical and tedious. Before I wrote this book, I was
amazed that so many boring books had been written about such a fas-
cinating subject. Just like you, I hate reading books that put me to sleep
by the second chapter. That is why I was so determined to write an
entertaining, easy-to-read, and educational book about the market.

million hedge fund to one handling over $500 million annually after

I have been trading the stock market for twenty years. Originally, I
made my trading decisions by watching the ebbs and flows of the ticker
tape. I knew very little of the fundamentals of the companies I was trad-
ing and based my decisions on the tape action. Later, as I refined my
art, I began...
Traders talk amongst themselves, not necessarily to discuss bullish or bearish
market opinions, but rather to share insights into the nature and quirkiness of this
business. The mental toll trading exacts definitely forms bonds. When we open up it
is always surprising to discover the similarity of lessons learned, experiences shared,
and how we all independently arrive at the same conclusions. Often in talking with
each other we're really looking for clues into our own heads, hoping to understand
ourselves a little better.
This publication is for short-term traders, i.e. for traders who hold stocks for one to eight
days. Short-term trading assumes buying and selling stocks often. After two to four months a
trader will have good statistics and he or she can start an analysis of trading results. What are
the main questions, which should be answered from this analysis?
or purposes of this book the term private equity refers to the
common stock of a corporation where that common stock is
held by a relatively few investors and is not traded on any of the
conventional stock markets. Normally the senior managers of
the firm hold a significant percentage of the firm's stock, and we
will assume that is the situation in all the cases discussed in this
I would like to thank the person who inspired this book and without whom it would not have been written: my friend, my business partner, and Director of Research, Cherrie Mahon. This book was
actually born when I met Cherrie in 1998. She was a stockbroker at
the time and was endlessly inquisitive about my newsletter, research
techniques, and rather unusual approach to stock selection in comparison
to what she was learning at the major “mainstream” brokerage
firm that employed her.

This book was written after FASB released its proposed FAS 123 revision
Tin March 2004. As one of the valuation consultants and FASB advisors
on the FAS 123 initiative in 2003 and 2004, I would like to illustrate to
the ﬁnance and accounting world that what FASB has proposed is actually
pragmatic and applicable. I am neither for nor against the expensing of
employee stock options and would recuse myself from the philosophical
and sometimes emotional debate on whether employee ...
