Walker's Manual of Unlisted Stocks gives you an objective glimpse at the rich variety of companies in the over-the-counter stock market. Information can be hard to come by for stocks trading OTC, especially when the companies are not SEC reporting. We've highlighted this population once again in our 4th edition, showcasing 500 companies in two separate sections. 400 of them comprise section 1, an OTC constellation of US companies representing virtually every industry other than banking. You'll find their stock prices to be all over the map; almost always over $5 per share, sometimes (if rarely) well over $10,000. Investment types among them run the gamut too, from value to growth to income to speculative.

The second section, new to this edition, is devoted exclusively to US community banks. Arranged together for easy reference, and designed with financial information of special interest to bank investors in mind, here you will find, quite simply, the 100 best buys in community banks that we know of.

In both sections, every company has a full page devoted to it that includes a summarized description of operations, up to 4 years of financial statements, our comments on operations and financial condition, who to contact for further information about the company and how to make trades in their stock (market makers, broker dealers). Some of the oldest and most venerable among them are also highlighted with an additional one page historical vignette.

Altogether, over 75 pages of indices list, rank and sort in categories that range from geographic area to market capitalization to compound earnings growth. Bank indices are organized and presented separately. Take a look at our 4th edition, not only for all the new companies we've dug up, but for updated information on the best ones we carried forward from last year too.

...if you're a good treasure-hunter and enjoy meandering the back roads, there are literally hundreds of these classy banks dotting the highways and byways of small-town America that may be hidden pearls. ...Walker's Manual... could be your personal treasure trove... -- Malcolm Berko, Charlotte Sun Herald, December 14, 1998

Breathes there a soul so removed that he hasn't pored over a Rand McNally map, dipped a brush into a can of Benjamin Moore paint..? Venerable, large, boasting instant recognition virtually the world over, [these companies] also share a secret only the privileged few are privy to: They're publicly owned. But don't, please, waste your time looking for their shares on the Big Board, the Curb or Nasdaq... buying...can take loads of patience and savvy. And, very often, the investor is flying blind. Nature, however, abhors a vacuum-and so, happily, does Harry Eisenberg. ...he has demonstrated that no matter how thin the issue, where there's a will to buy, there's usually a way. And by publishing all the financials he can get his hands on, Eisenberg is shedding light on some obscure and intriguing stocks. -- Barron's, August 26, 1996

The financial world has plenty of sleuths--Wall Street analysts who kick the tires, accountants who pore over the books, reporters who dig for sources. But for sheer diligence, few can match Harry K. Eisenberg, a San Francisco Bay Area financial analyst who has spent the past three years prying open the secrets of little-known equities that aren't listed on any exchange, and publishing the best in a surprisingly fascinating book called Walker's Manual of Unlisted Stocks. -- Individual Investor, 08/98

Until recently, learning anything relevant about these closely-held, thinly traded companies has been next to impossible... Now, however, a reference book is available that sifts through the junk in the pink sheets. It offers investors a window into this oft-murky market. ...[Eisenberg] has done the legwork, [but he] cautions readers that the book is only a starting point. -- Business Week, August 19, 1996
