Finally, robust empirical evidence on an idea

As an investor, I've tried to remain open minded about different philosophies and methodologies, but it's hard to give an idea any time when it doesn't come with a firm foundation of research and testing.

While the strategies in this book are fairly simple and may not be as high-flying as some momentum traders might want, the concepts do provide a reasonable foundation for a low-effort method of systematically buying stocks which can "beat the market" on either the upside or downside, and sometimes both.

Good read, would recommend it among your investment collection.

Only book you need to read to learn how to invest.

Extremely valuable insight to analysing stocks and strategies. if one only read this book on stock investing, they would have all the knowledge necessary to make a fortune on Wall Street.
