The chart on the cover tells all. Buy the stock in the blue area. That's where the stock is worth more than it costs. Don't buy the stock in the red area. That's where the stock costs more than it is worth. What Are Stocks Really Worth? shows how to locate the buy and don't buy areas. It tells you what a stock is worth in dollars and cents. If the stock is worth more than it costs, buy it. If not, don't buy it. It is as simple as that.
Step-by-step examples show how to analyze a firm's financial statements and forecast future performance. Simple worksheets then show how much you can pay for the stock and still earn any minimum rate of return you specify. Even though SmartValue is cutting edge technology, simple worksheets reduce computations to grammar-school arithmetic. A hand calculator is all you need. You will learn with real examples and real firms, like Coca-Cola, Cisco Systems, and Microsoft. No made-up "XYZ" corporations.
You are not some "average" investor. You are special. The book tunes finding what stocks are worth to your individual situation -- to your tax bracket, your time horizon, your tolerance for risk, and your alternative investments. It tells what the stock is worth to you, not to that "average" investor.
The book will make you an intelligent investor. You will learn the three key factors that tell what any stock is worth. Focus on those keys, and you can ignore the babble of the other statistics that crowd the financial pages.
Growth stocks! That's where the glamour and hype is. And that's where the risk is. You can easily pay too much for growth stocks. Rapid growth cannot last forever. Growth is bound to slow as gowth firms mature. The SmartValue Formula provides unlimited flexibility in accounting for how growth slows. You can even forecast by drawing free-hand curves on a sheet of graph paper. The SmartValue formula will translate your free-hand curves into a dollars-and-cents value for any stock.

Many analysts are concerned that stocks cost far too much. Investors are in danger of serious losses in a major market downturn. What Are Stocks Really Worth? provides timely help. It promises to insulate investors from these losses by showing whether a stock costs too much, or is reasonably priced.
Publishers of books for investors have a rule: the book must be an easy read, or it will be too hard to sell. Even a hint that the reader will be asked to do some work can be fatal. That is why so many books for investors are filled with pabulum. Analytical Books has broken that rule. We believe that serious investors welcome quantitative help in valuing stocks. They will not mind picking up their hand calculator and punching in a few numbers before risking hard-earned money on a stock. The simple worksheets in What Are Stocks Really Worth? enable serious investors to apply state-of-the-art technology to their investment program. The payoff from only a little effort is a dollars-and-cents value for any stock, and a more intelligent investing strategy.About the Author:
