A simple investment plan that really works

Aside from the humor in the book this is perhaps the most interesting investment plan I have ever seen. It is aimed at the basic investor, not someone who has spent years studying the stock market. The simple straightforward language is easy to understand. By trading no-load, no-fee mutual funds following this method it is possible to grow your money. It also discusses when and how to move your money to safe havens when mutual funds are not a good choice.There are also chapters on options, commodities, and gold, but they are short and the subjects are presented more for background information than anything. You could not trade those successfully from the information in the book. But if you have money in IRA's and 401K/403B's then this will show you how to maximize your investment

A workable approach

An excellent book and approach to investing. However, you will have to read it several times. If you don't you'd be apt to think the system does not work in a bear market but it does, and very nicely too. Thomas recommends finding momentum by checking 13 week, 6 month, and one year performance results -- I suggest you also check 4 week fund performance results.Highly recommended by this writer. My portfolio is up 10% in 3 months by following the "If it doesn't go up" method during an ugly bear market.

Stable Investing Strategies In All Markets

I was turned on to this book by my Accountant back in early 1999. I was a beginner to intermediate investor at the time, and certainly lost more than I made due mostly to lack of discipline.This book discusses a safe investing strategy with limited losses, and huge profit potential. Since reading the book and following the market indicators, I've experienced significantly more profit than the few small losses. The theme of the book is invest in mutual funds, follow market indicators, BE DISCIPLINED, minimize losses, and maximize profits.I continuously recommended this book in any conversation I'm involved in discussing investments. Two of my close friends with 7 figure portfolios (and plenty of other friends and relatives with much less) follow this strategy to the "T". Of coarse they (and I) dabble in other strategies, but this is their primary portfolio strategy.I would recommend this book anyone interested in making money in the market. Anyone from beginner to expert traders will benefit, as the book cuts right to the point, and explains all necessary details in a clear and concise manner.Thanks for the great book Al!!!

Finally, a system that works !

My thanks to Al Thomas for writing a book explaining an investment system that works, that is simple and that anybody can master regardless of background or experience. Other reviewers have covered the books contents quite well. I'm here to show how the system has worked. Using his method of buying only the better performing no-load mutual funds and holding them only so long as they perform well my gain YTD (Sep 25,2000) has been 46.7% even though I took some severe hits in March when the Nasdaq bottomed.

If it Doesn't go Up Don't Buy It!

The book takes the reader on a revealing journey through the absurdity and nonsense that has become Wall Street. If you're under the weather from building wealth for your broker while your portfolio withers, I prescribe a healthy dose of "If It Doesn't Go Up Don't Buy It." For an entertaining read and solid information on wealth building this book can't be beat. If you're a broker I suggest you read it with your seatbelt fastened.
