Every investor knows that the key to success is buying the right stock at the right time. But such savvy stock picking has always been seen as the province of Wall Street insiders. This work explains the specific, proven techniques used by Wall Street's elite and shows individual investors how they can profit from each one. Readers learn how to determine relative value and build a solid portfolio, cash in on turnaround stocks and spinoffs, invest in stocks offering both attractive yield and strong capital prospects, maximize the on-again/of-again fortunes of cyclical companies, invest in industries poised to take advantage of special circumstances, ferret out small cap stocks with bright futures, and more. There are also analyses of why and when a particular strategy works and how it should be applied, as well as tips from Wall Street's superstars Sir John Templeton and David Dremen.

A nice overview of investing for beginning investors is Stock Picking by Richard Maturi. Maturi is one of the better professional investment writers, with a syndicated column and several books to his name--Wall Street Words probably being the most well known. Stock Picking looks at nine investment approaches revolving around specific types of companies, ranging from analyzing companies that generate tons of cash flow to picking small capitalization stocks. I found the two sections on stock splits and spin-offs particularly interesting, as these both cited rather interesting academic data and grounded it with anecdotal reports from various money managers. Although Stock Picking is not a book that you can read and then expect to use to generate excess returns within days, it has some value as an introductory text to the mechanics of picking stocks using various fundamentally based approaches.
