Blue chips & hot tips: identifying emerging growth companies most likely to succeed
New York Institute of Finance, 1992 - Business & Economics - 256 pages
Investing in emerging growth companies is often thought to be a "crapshoot." But, as this book demonstrates, there's a proven strategy for investing in these companies to maximize return.
How can investors spot signs to suggest that a company may be the next Microsoft, Liz Claiborne, or Home Depot? And how can they spot warning flags to suggest that a company may be the next Kaypro, ZZZZ Best, or Silk Greenhouse?
This guide provides investors with the essential skills for picking undervalued securities and avoiding overvalued, hyped offerings. The skills can help any investor, even ones with little or no previous training, in finding future "gems."
Blue Chips & Hot Tips starts off explaining why the reader should consider investing in emerging growth companies, why the "experts" usually recommend these companies too late, and how to rely on information readily available to all of us to make intelligent investment decisions.
It then compares the performance of several successful stock offerings to some of the failures (e.g., Compaq to Kaypro, Genentech to Genex), and explains how to look for "red flags" to differentiate the winners from the losers.
It also spells out market-tested suggestions, significant conclusions, and strategies to help readers spot early signs that will reduce risk while providing higher returns for investors.
Detailed and comprehensive, yet written in a user-friendly style, Blue Chips & Hot Tips explains:
how to find companies with strong earnings and strong earnings growth
what to look for beyond the net income
why companies with proprietary technologies are so valuable to investors
how low tech companies can be shining stars
why investors should beware of "hot stocks" in "hot industries"
why a company's management is more valuable than its technology
how to determine if a company is overvalued
and much more.
In short, investors who wish to maximize returns with a minimum of risk will do well to heed this book's advice on when to invest in an emerging growth company and when to take cover.
