9780066620473: Beating the Dow (Revised and Updated)

In 1991, Michael B. O'Higgins, one of the nation's top money managers, turned the investment world upside down with an ingenious strategy, showing how all investors--from those with only $5,000 to invest to millionaires--could beat the pros 95% of the time by putting 100% of their equity investment into the high-yield, low-risk "dog" stocks of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. His formula spawned a veritable industry, including websites, mutual funds, and $20 billion worth of investments, elevating the theory to legendary status.

Reflecting on the greatest bull market of our time, this must-have investment guide has been revised and updated for a new economy. With current company and stock profiles, as well as new charts, statistics, graphs, and figures, Beating the Dow is the smart investment that you--and your portfolio--can't afford to miss

From Library Journal:

Two contrasting investment methods are offered by these titles. O'Higgins, a 20-year veteran of Wall Street, espouses a system that limits the stock universe to the 30 stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. He has followed this system as a successful money manager and states that respectable returns can be realized by selecting the highest yielding of the 30 Dow stocks. Unfortunately, most of the book is background and only a few chapters are devoted to the how-to part of the system. Purchase Geraldine Weiss and Janet Lowe's Dividends Don't Lie ( LJ 1/89) before this one. O'Neil is the founder and publisher of Investor's Daily. His investment approach emphasizes the quality of a company's earnings from quarter to quarter. Having sorted this out, the investor is then advised to find stocks that are performing well in strong industry groups. Frequent mention is made of the fact that only one investment newspaper provides the data needed to conveniently employ this system. Well written and to the point, this updated title should at least be in libraries that carry Investor's Daily .
