--Financial Analysts' Journal

The consistently bestselling What Works on Wall Street explores the investment strategies that have provided the best returns over the past 50 years--and which are the top performers today.

Providing fresh insights into time-tested strategies, it examines:

  • Value versus growth strategies
  • P/E ratios versus price-to-sales
  • Small-cap investing, seasonality, and more
