From the Inside Flap:

Stocks can be the perfect vehicle for your investment journey–if you know how to pick them. With Morningstar’s unparalleled guidance you can get the story behind the numbers and learn how to invest in stocks with care and confidence.

In The Five Rules for Successful Stock Investing, Pat Dorsey, Director of Stock Analysis for Morningstar, Inc., helps today’s investors learn from the mistakes of the past in order to lay a solid foundation for future success. According to Mr. Dorsey, "Investment success depends on personal discipline, not on whether the crowd agrees or disagrees with you." In a highly accessible and down-to-earth style, Dorsey helps even novice investors understand how to evaluate companies and achieve success by buying stocks at a discount of their true worth.

Reading The Five Rules for Successful Stock Investing is like joining a community of fellow investors who want to better understand how stocks operate, avoid the common pitfalls of investing, and build strong stock portfolios they can be confident in. Dorsey and his team of stock analysts will open investors’ eyes to a wealth of investment opportunities that exist regardless of market conditions, as they learn:

  • How to develop a feel for what makes a company profitable
  • How to find great companies with a competitive advantage
  • How to make sure a company’s management team is on their side
  • How to recognize red flags that can cause blow-ups in a portfolio
  • How to apply proven valuation principles to improve results
  • And how to apply a 10-Minute Test to any stock in order to determine if it’s worth investigating in more detail

A complete investment guide for people who are serious about mastering stock strategies, The Five Rules for Successful Stock Investing outlines the rigorous process through which Morningstar evaluates stocks, providing readers with tried-and-true tools for selecting stocks that will make promising long-term investments–and perhaps more important–avoiding those that won’t.

In today’s economic climate, The Five Rules for Successful Stock Investing has something to offer every investor. Seasoned investors will welcome the kind of sound, reliable advice that can help them avoid the mistakes of the past, while novice investors will find the kind of "on-ramp" introduction they need to get moving along the road to better investment results.
