  • Peter Lynch – The Perfect Stock

    If my memory serves me correctly, “One Up on Wall Street” was the first investment book I ever read. To this day, it remains among my favorites. In the book, Peter Lynch consolidates his investment philosophy (with countless examples) into a few hundred pages; it’s a great “how to” book for starters, while at the same time a good reference book for more experienced investors. Considering that Mr. Lynch managed the best performing fund in the world during his 13-year career (Fidelity Magellan Fund from May 1977 to May 1990), he’s worth listening to.

    In “One Up on Wall Street,” Mr. Lynch lists 13 attributes that he looks for in the perfect stock. I’m going to add some commentary on the few points where I think I have something useful to say (or even better for you, quote Mr. Lynch directly). With that, let’s get started:

  • How I Used "One Up on Wall Street" to Guide Me Through Our Features--New and Old

    The very first book I read about investing in the market was One Up on Wall Street by Peter Lynch. I would honestly highly recommend this book to anyone who is new to the market and feels like a little shrimp lost in a huge ocean. Naturally, you want to listen to your friends and what companies they invest in, or take a look at what stocks are most talked about in the news. You may even feel like playing it safe would be to invest in the big name companies, but one thing Lynch says at the beginning of the book is that there are no real “experts” in the market.

    “...rule number one, in my book is: stop listening to professionals!”


  • CPSI: A Predictable And Undervalued Small Cap

    Here’s a small cap stock flying mostly under the radar but worth examining because it has a history of predictable earnings, a rating of undervalued, and a dividend of 3.90%.

    Computer Programs and Systems, Inc. (CPSI) provides medical information technology (IT) systems to small and mid-sized rural and community hospitals. It’s making the most of pressure on hospitals to increase patient care and productivity metrics, as well as the need among hospitals for efficient billing and reporting.

    It isn’t often that a very successful hedge fund manager with a winning strategy closes up shop, but that is exactly what this week’s Great Investor guest did in 1995. It’s equally unusual to get back in the business more than a decade later with a dramatically altered strategy. Joel Greenblatt (Trades, Portfolio) of the Gotham Funds will explain his big change in portfolio strategy, from a very concentrated approach to broad diversification.


  • How Many Stocks Are Enough?

    One of the questions that every private investor faces sooner or later is to decide how many stocks should you hold in your portfolio. How much diversification is enough?
