DESCRIPTION BOOK:

It's a daunting task to figure out how the stock market works. You've probably heard both good and bad things about it. Still, you want to learn more about the stock market. It could also be that you want to start investing but don't know where to begin or how much to invest. If you're already investing, you want to learn better ways to grow your investments, because you want to be more confident about your financial future. Up until now, you probably didn't have enough time to learn about investing and it might seem too confusing, because there is so much information out there about investing. You also don't want to lose your money or don't have enough money to begin investing. What if you had the confidence to start investing on your own, so you could show off your investment performance to family and friends? Leave the stress of an insecure financial future behind you and create sustainable wealth, which you can pass down to your family. In this book I give you a quick overview about what you need to know about the stock market, how to begin, what to do if you don't have enough cash, how to generate passive income, and how to analyze companies. I also give you a list of companies I personally invest in and I try to answer all the questions you might have that are stopping you from getting started or progressing in your investing journey. I'll show you why you need to watch out with investment vehicles such as the 401K and index funds. This book is a quick read and great to keep as a reference. Best of all, you can get started immediately after reading it!

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “The clearest and best book out there to get you on the path to riches. This one’s special!”—Jim Cramer, host of CNBC’s Mad Money “Great tools for anyone wanting to dabble in the stock market.”—USA Today Phil Town is a very wealthy man, but he wasn’t always. In fact, he was living on a salary of $4,000 a year when some well-timed advice launched him down a highway of investing self-education that revealed what the true “rules” are and how to make them work in one’s favor. Chief among them, of course, is Rule #1: “Don’t lose money.” In this updated edition to the #1 national bestseller, you’ll learn more of Phil’s fresh, think-outside-the-box rules, including: • Don’t diversify • Only buy a stock when it’s on sale • Think long term—but act short term to maximize your return • And most of all, beat the big investors at their own game by using the tools designed for them! As Phil demonstrates in these pages, giant mutual funds can’t help but regress to the mean—and as we’ve all learned in recent years, that mean could be very disappointing indeed. Fortunately, Rule #1 takes readers step-by-step through a do-it-yourself process, equipping even the biggest investing-phobes with the tools they need to make quantum leaps toward financial security—regardless of where the market is headed.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

INVESTING IS ONE OF THE FEW AREAS IN LIFE WHERE EVEN VERY SMART PEOPLE LET HOPE TRIUMPH OVER EXPERIENCE According to Wall Street Journal investing colum­nist Spencer Jakab, most of us have no idea how much money we’re leaving on the table—or that the average saver doesn’t come anywhere close to earning the “average” returns touted in those glossy brochures. We’re handicapped not only by psychological biases and a fear of missing out, but by an industry with multimillion-dollar marketing budgets and an eye on its own bottom line, not yours. Unless you’re very handy, you probably don’t know how to fix your own car or give a family member a decent haircut. But most Americans are expected to be part-time fund managers. With a steady, livable pension check becoming a rarity, we’ve been entrusted with our own finances and, for the most part, failed miserably. Since leaving his job as a top-rated stock ana­lyst to become an investing columnist, Jakab has watched his readers—and his family, friends, and colleagues—make the same mistakes again and again. He set out to evaluate the typical advice people get, from the clearly risky to the seemingly safe, to figure out where it all goes wrong and how they could do much better. Blending entertaining stories with some sur­prising research, Jakab explains ·How a typical saver could have a retirement nest egg twice as large by being cheap and lazy. ·Why investors who put their savings with a high-performing mutual fund manager end up worse off than if they’d picked one who has struggled. ·The best way to cash in on your hunch that a recession is looming. ·How people who check their brokerage accounts frequently end up falling behind the market. ·Who isn’t nearly as good at investing as the media would have you think. He also explains why you should never trust a World Cup–predicting octopus, why you shouldn’t invest in companies with an X or a Z in their names, and what to do if a time traveler offers you eco­nomic news from the future. Whatever your level of expertise, Heads I Win, Tails I Win can help you vastly improve your odds of investment success.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

You are about to learn the true secret of real estate investing real estate options. WHO really makes money in Real Estate? Realtors, sellers, appraisers, the bank, brokers, mortgage brokers, closing companies, attorneys, taxing authorities, and lastly perhaps you the investor who takes all the risk and does all the work, while having to evict tenants and clean up their mess after theyâe(tm)ve left. But there is a new, unique and innovative method of investing in real estate. A Real Estate Option gives you control of a piece of real estate without actually purchasing it. By having an option on a piece of property, you have the exclusive right to buy that property or not. A real estate option is simply a contract between the seller and buyer giving you the legal right not obligation to buy the property at a set price for a predetermined time. When you find a buyer for the property, you cash in your option and deposit a large check. Most real estate investment methods require you to sink a lot of your money, time, and effort into your investments. And it is a slow process, usually one property at a time, often part-time. Using an option instead of purchasing means you do not have to deal with rental property, tenants, maintenance and repairs, taxes, mortgage payments, commissions, or closing costs. In this new book you will learn how to control a vast real estate portfolio without ever buying the property. Let the owner keep paying the mortgage, dealing with tenants and all of the costs. You zero in on the profits. Here is an example, you locate a duplex worth $400,000, you purchase an option to buy it for $340,000 anytime within the next 120 days. On Day 60, you find a buyer who will pay the full $400,000., you activate the option, pay the seller $340,000, and pocket $60,000. This is a simplified example, but this new book details how to become a highly successful real estate option buyer, and it demonstrates step-by-step how to get started in this highly rewarding investment strategy.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Don’t get mad, get even… Phil Town’s first book, the #1 New York Times bestseller Rule #1, was a guide to stock trading for people who believe they lack the knowledge to trade. But because many people aren’t ready to go from mutual funds directly into trading without understanding investing—for the long term – he created Payback Time. Too often, people see long-term investing as “mutual fund contributing” – otherwise known as “long-term hoping.” But the sad truth is that mutual fund investors are, to a stunning degree, pinning their hopes on an institution that is hopeless. It turns out that only 4% of fund managers consistently beat the S&P 500 index over the long term, which means that 96% of fund investors see a smaller return on their nest egg than a chimpanzee who simply buys stocks in the 500 biggest companies in America and watches what happens. But it’s worse than that. The net effect of hitching your wagon to mutual funds is that over a lifetime they’ll fritter away as much 60% of your nest egg in fees. Once you understand how funds engineer this, you’ll rush to invest on your own. Payback Time’s risk-free approach is called “stockpiling” and it’s how billionaires get rich in bad markets. It’s a set of rules for investing (not trading but investing) in the right businesses at the right time -- rules that will ensure you make the big money.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

In 2005, Joel Greenblatt published a book that is already considered one of the classics of finance literature. In The Little Book that Beats the Market—a New York Times bestseller with 300,000 copies in print—Greenblatt explained how investors can outperform the popular market averages by simply and systematically applying a formula that seeks out good businesses when they are available at bargain prices. Now, with a new Introduction and Afterword for 2010, The Little Book that Still Beats the Market updates and expands upon the research findings from the original book. Included are data and analysis covering the recent financial crisis and model performance through the end of 2009. In a straightforward and accessible style, the book explores the basic principles of successful stock market investing and then reveals the author’s time-tested formula that makes buying above average companies at below average prices automatic. Though the formula has been extensively tested and is a breakthrough in the academic and professional world, Greenblatt explains it using 6th grade math, plain language and humor. He shows how to use his method to beat both the market and professional managers by a wide margin. You’ll also learn why success eludes almost all individual and professional investors, and why the formula will continue to work even after everyone “knows” it. While the formula may be simple, understanding why the formula works is the true key to success for investors. The book will take readers on a step-by-step journey so that they can learn the principles of value investing in a way that will provide them with a long term strategy that they can understand and stick with through both good and bad periods for the stock market. As the Wall Street Journal stated about the original edition, “Mr. Greenblatt…says his goal was to provide advice that, while sophisticated, could be understood and followed by his five children, ages 6 to 15. They are in luck. His ‘Little Book’ is one of the best, clearest guides to value investing out there.”

The road to success in investing and trading as I always say is paved with the smoking blown up accounts of investors and traders who did not learn the right information from the start of their time in this business and also were not utilizing a smart plan in their trading.

Your core strategy and smart plan can and should be very simple and really all you will need to make money with the smart money every day in the live financial markets or any liquid market for that matter.

The professional advice I give you in this book will empower you to have confidence and zero fear of going in the live markets and accurately initiating a low risk high reward position with which you can have a high probability outcome from being a live market participant. Becoming a successful self-directed investor and trader is not nearly as difficult as one would think as long as they have the proper education and proper knowledge base right from day one, it takes a while but you can do it! If you need to learn the trading business from the ground up then this book is definitely a good starting point for you. I encourage you to read it as many times as it takes for it to become clear to you as to what you do and do not need to learn to be successful in this business from the start.
