From the Back Cover:

Learn How Warren Buffett Consistently Beats Wall Street to the Best Stocks­­and What He Plans Next

Warren Buffett is the only billionaire in history to amass his fortune entirely through shrewd investing. And while many books have chronicled Buffett's story, none have examined his legendary value investing techniques­­where he looks, what he looks for, and what signals tell him it's time to buy.

How to Pick Stocks Like Warren Buffett shows, step by profitable step, how any investor can follow Buffett's path and find consistent bargains regardless of the overall market. Value investing practitioner and chronicler Timothy Vick packs the book with:

Comprehensive value investing tools and information

Methods for appraising today¿s popular technology stocks

Insights on how Buffett assesses risk and potential reward

Praise for How to Pick Stocks Like Warren Buffett

"This is a must read for anyone wanting to learn the investing techniques of Warren Buffett."­­Mary Buffett, Author, Buffettology

"I have seen no trend toward value investing in the 35 years I've practiced it. There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult."
--Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett is widely considered history¿s greatest investor. This fascinating man­­humorous and homespun on the outside, serious and ready for battle on the inside­­would have the world believe his success was as simple as adding 2 + 2. But the truth is entirely different. As How to Pick Stocks Like Warren Buffett reveals, Buffett has a clear and consistent set of investment rules and methods that have brought him and his investors unparalleled good fortune. These tools­­including which performance numbers Buffett considers most critical, strategies he employs to take advantage of consistently irrational markets, management attitudes that make him look favorably on a situation, and more­­are, for the first time, analyzed with the attention to detail investors require.

The resulting book is nothing less than a step-by-step rulebook for emulating Buffett's startling investment successes.

"What doesn't work is when you start doing things you don't understand or because they worked last week for somebody else. The dumbest reason in the world to buy a stock is because it's going up."

Far from a scratch-the-surface biography filled with interesting but extraneous biographic material, How to Pick Stocks Like Warren Buffett takes you straight to the core of Buffett's investing genius. Timothy Vick tells you how Buffett did it, how he continues to do it, and how you can follow Buffett's lead to build an impressive portfolio of your own.

Nowhere else will you find this depth and breadth of Buffett's keen market insights:

  • Three strategies for gaining market-beating results without assuming excessive risks
  • Techniques for estimating a company¿s future earnings­­one of the fundamental bases of intrinsic value
  • Why per-share book value growth remains Buffett's favorite yardstick of a company's investment potential
  • How Buffett seeks to avoid losses through convertibles, options, and his secret weapon­­arbitrage

Warren Buffett has left a clearer, more profitable set of tracks to follow than any other great investor. Discover how to uncover, interpret, and follow those tracks­­for consistently high rates of return and a portfolio of solid, predictable, and long-term profitable stocks and investments­­in How to Pick Stocks Like Warren Buffett.
