How to find stocks that multiply a few times


The story in the book, Finding Winners by Richards L Evans, is a constant reminder.

How he lost a bundle in a stock Magnavox, which was at that time popula, glamorous and had a good following by stock analysts.

And another story of a chemist who used to look for stocks that are out of flavour and depressed. How the chemist ploughed through a lists of stocks that were depressed and made new lows, which funds managers dumped for unfavourable outlook.

How he picked cyclical commodities stock, Texas Gulf Sulphur which was temporary hit by earnings problems. He kept buying it when it went lower.

Subsequently the stock & earnings recovered and he made millions out of it.

The stock Magnavox, which had he brought dropped 94% and the stock which the chemist had brought Texas Gulf Sulfur when up 2700%.

A classical case of what Warren Buffret described, to buy quality stocks hit by temporary problems,Texas Gulf Sulphur was a case of a distress stock to a turnaround stock, and from a turnaround stock became a growth stock.

Peter Lynch felt that stock picking is more an art than science, if it is a science accountants will be the richest men.

A person who study history will do better than a person who major in accounts. Because a person study history will study how companies trade in the past.

Gerald Loeb in his book "The Battle for Investment Survival"

"It is important to stick to issues which in past times of bullish enthusiasm have had active markets and which can be expected to have active markets again. However, at the time of purchase they must be low -rated and unpopular, with their prices down and discouragement about their propspects quite general."

Gerald loeb use to said in his book put all your money in one best stock.
