In 1991, Michael B. O'Higgins rocked the investment world with the publication of Beating the Dow, a revolutionary book that taught investors how to beat the pros 95% of the time by putting 100% of their money into the Dow Jones's "dog" stocks. Now, eight years after the book's initial publication -- and more than 175,000 copies sold -- the "King of the Dow Dogs" is back to update this bestselling classic. Reflecting on the greatest bull market of our time and its effects on the stock market overall, this revision will also provide new company and stock profiles and scores of new charts, statistics, graphs, and figures.
