About the Author:

Mr. Max Bowser is the editor/publisher of "The Bowser Report", which was started in the 1970s and is the only investment newsletter for stocks $3.00 a share or less and also the author of the book, entitled: "Making Dollars with Pennies"; or "How the Small Investor Can Beat the Wizards on Wall Street".

In 1990, he inaugurated "The Bowser Directory of Small Stocks", which is a computer-generated compilation of between 700 and 800 low-priced equities.

In 1995, "The Bowser Warrant Register" was launched. The only newsletter for warrants for $3. or less. It's a very interesting way to make money.

Mr. Max Bowser invested his own money in his penny stock recommendations. He started his portfolio investment in July, l986. He invested $4,454 of his personal money. In ten years the value grew to nearly $40,000, almost a 791% gain. His recommendations are clear cut and well supported by analysis. His book reveals his successful game plan.

Born in Celina, Ohio, Mr. Bowser exhibited an early interest in journalism. He was editor of his high school newspaper for three years. After high school, he worked on weekly Ohio newspapers, first in Coldwater and then in Eaton. On the "Eaton-Press-Review", he was the editor and a "string" correspondent for the Associated Press, the "Dayton Journal-Herald" and the "Cincinnati Times-Star". Later he was employed on newspapers in California: Monrovia, Arcadia and in the San Fernando Valley. His newspaper career was interrupted, however, by military service. During a tour in the Air Force, he went from headquarter clerk to an intelligence officer. He served a total of 24 years and retired in April 1970 with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

His first step in a new career was to go to college to broaden his business background. In the spring of 1973, he graduated magna cum laude from Thomas Nelson Community College in Hampton, Virginia with two associate degrees--one in accounting and one in business administration.

From 1973 to 1979, he further studied the stock market, refining his techniques for investing in low-priced equities. It was also during this period he decided to concentrate on stocks selling for $3.00 a share or less. Too, he then determined the format for the newsletter, principally by mailing it to a select group across the country and considering their various suggestions.

Although it initially only had 40 paid subscribers, "The Bowser Report" is now in the top 3% circulation-wise among the hundreds of investment newsletters.

In his new book; "Penny Stock Winners: True Stories of Successful Investors", Mr. Bowser interviews individuals who have successfully made money following the Bowser "Game Plan". There is a housewife who have financed her family's annual vacations with her penny stock winnings, a single mother who made a bundle with stock warrants. The personal stories are related of 15 penny stock winners. This 230 page book also includes interviews with investment professionals, most of whom have had successful experiences with the stock of small companies.

Preface.
We hope you learn one thing from this book. That is, there is a way to make money in minipriced stocks. Use the Bowser Game Plan.
We have been studying low priced stocks for three decades. All of that experience. All of that accumulated information. All of that has been filtered down to the Game Plan.
Tha Advantage of the Game Plan are manifold.
1. These small cap issues are considered risky. But, the Game Plan controls the riskiness. Through diversification. We suggest you build a portfolio of 12 to 18 of these stocks.
2. You do not have to do the research. We do. Each month in "The Bowser Report" we examine a company in great detail. We call it the Company of the Month.
3. After you buy a stock, you don't have to wonder how the company is doing. We follow up with pertinent information on each stock that we recommend.
4. When do you sell? That is the most difficult part of stock market investing. We tell you when to sell.
4a. If the stock does well, The Plan calls for you to sell half of your holdings. That way you liquidate most of your original cost. Then you track the stock's progress. If it drops back 25% from its most recent high, you sell the remainder.
4b. The stock does not do well. The company's fundamentals have deteriorated. Then, in our newsletter we tell you to sell.
5. Your portfolio can be self financing at a certain point. The sale of stocks generates funds. These can be used to buy more stock.
6. However, you may have additional funds that you want to put into these stocks. This money can be used to increase the number of shares that you buy once you have reached your goal of 18 different issues. Or, you can average down on those stocks that you think have been unwittingly forced down in price.
Finally, there is a psychological aspect to The Bowser Game Plan. In fact, it's psychological factors that doom the efforts of many people who want to succeed in buying and selling individual stocks.
The first deadly disease is "irrational expectations". It is closely aligned with greed. It's evident when individuals put most of their money in one stock. Because of the leverage that comes with these small stocks, they hope to make a quick killing.
They put $5,000 into a $2 stock. that gives them 2,500 shares. At $10 a share, their $5,000 has jumped to $25,000. Wow!
But, that $2 stock may go down to $1. They've lost half of their $5,000. Putting an equal amount into 12 to 18 different issues eliminates this danger.
The second deadly disease is impatience. If they don't have a fat profit in six months, they throw up their hands in disgust. Be patient. Sometimes it takes two, three or four years for some of these stocks to blossom. Most of the portfolios that we have operated did not do well in their first year.
One more note. It can be fun building a portfolio of minipriced stocks. You'll have your moments of anguish. And, of great delight. But, most importantly, it'll be rewarding.
R. Max Bowser
