Strategies to Potentially Double or Triple Your Returns--By Uncovering the High-Potential Companies That Wall Street Has Missed

Today's stock market is filled with solid, high-potential companies that, for one reason or another, have slipped beneath the radar screens of Wall Street analysts and the financial press. The Streetsmart Guide to Overlooked Stocks outlines a simple-yet-effective program for uncovering these outstanding opportunities, investing in them before they are discovered, then watching as they--time and again--outperform competing stocks over the long term.

There is nothing mysterious or magical about finding overlooked stocks, just a simple-but-reliable set of research strategies and guidelines. Look to The Streetsmart Guide to Overlooked Stocks to discover:

  • Telltale clues that signal a stock is ready to break out
  • 10 common investing errors and how to avoid them
  • 36 diamond-in-the-rough stocks you should be looking at--today

When a stockbroker calls you about a "hot" company, or a pundit in the financial press calls a stock a "can't-miss" opportunity, chances are that you're already too late. Let The Streetsmart Guide to Overlooked Stocks provide you with the tools you need to get there before the crowds, find the stocks that are selling for pennies on the dollar, and use those stocks to diversify your portfolio and boost its overall performance.

"To buy when others are despondently selling and to sell when others are avidly buying requires the greatest fortitude--and pays the greatest potential reward."--Sir John Templeton

Overlooked stocks come in every industry, every sector, and every region of the country. The key to finding them is in knowing what to look for.

The Streetsmart Guide to Overlooked Stocks shows you what to look for. Low PEG ratios ... high cash flow per share ... demonstrated management efficiency ... participation in global trends ... Any one of these factors can signal a company with decent potential; string two or more together and you may be looking at a classic example of an overlooked stock, one that probably won't remain overlooked for long. George Fisher--widely acknowledged as a master at showing individual investors how to invest wisely--reveals what you should look for when deciding where and where not to invest, including:

  • Sectors--and stocks within those sectors--that are poised to fly
  • Strategies for building a solid portfolio of overlooked stocks
  • When to bank profits and look for your next opportunity

More than just a one-dimensional stock-picking book, The Streetsmart Guide to Overlooked Stocks shows you the proven, specific steps you must take to become a well-rounded, long-term investor. It provides techniques for paying off debt and investing smart; diversification strategies that have proven to smooth rough markets over time; value investing secrets that made Warren Buffett the wealthiest pure investor in the world; methods for easily profiting from real estate investing through Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs); how to access and trade foreign stocks on U.S. exchanges using American Depository Receipts (ADRs); popular mutual funds that either provide true value or should be avoided at all costs; and much more.

While savvy investing may not be easy, it isn't necessarily difficult. Let The Streetsmart Guide to Overlooked Stocks show you how to find the odds-on investment opportunities that others are missing by looking beneath the surface to find and invest in quiet little companies that are more concerned with building value than building share price--and waiting for the rest of the market to catch on and catch up.
