In 1991, Michael B. O'Higgins, one of the nation's top money managers, turned the investment world upside down with an ingenious strategy, showing how all investors--from those with only $5,000 to invest to millionaires--could beat the pros 95% of the time by putting 100% of their equity investment into the high-yield, low-risk "dog" stocks of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. His formula spawned a veritable industry, including websites, mutual funds, and $20 billion worth of investments, elevating the theory to legendary status.

Reflecting on the greatest bull market of our time, this must-have investment guide has been revised and updated for a new economy. With current company and stock profiles, as well as new charts, statistics, graphs, and figures, Beating the Dow is the smart investment that you--and your portfolio--can't afford to miss

Customer Reviews of Beating The Dow Revised Edition: A High-return, Low-risk Method For Investing In The Dow Jones Industrial Stocks With As Little As $

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Low risk/High Return Methodology People always says, "High risk, High Return". However, I say, "High Risk, High Blood Pressure". This book is a very good methodology of low risk/high return in stock investment. Also, as the author says, it is very simple method to apply. Of course, it won't bring 2x, 3x, ..., rewards in months, but investors will have good sleep and less panics.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Dow Intro Reader This book looks like an "Introduction to the Dow and its Components" reader, but it has an investing slant as well. Basically it runs through what an index is, what the Dow is and what companies are included in the 30. It then advocates using screens and filters to find the best Dow stocks--arguing that investing in them has (and should continue to) lead to excess profits for investors. Good for beginner investors and those who would like to go to the next level.
