The purpose of this book, How to Make the Stock Market Make Money for You is to pass on to you the knowledge of the stock market that I have acquired over a third of a century. This knowledge did not come easily to one with a sixth grade education. I was originally a common laborer, yet I was able to retire in late 1940.
I will teach you in simple language (the only kind I know) a reasonably safe method of buying securities and sound reasons for expecting a 200% or more rise. This method is, in my opinion, the only practical method the key to stock market success.
I will teach you to think in a manner that most people never heard of—a method based on knowledge of market manipulation and the psychology of the public. By the use of readily available long range stock charts you will learn how the public reacts to various types of controlled price actions. These actions, like history, repeat themselves over and over; they may be relied upon and used with confidence.
In order to understand the technical condition or phase that a stock is in, you must learn to believe that every stock is under the guidance of “sponsors” who will manipulate its price movements in a way that will influence the unstable, emotional public into buying during the tops, and selling out at a loss. Who else but the public buys these stocks by the millions of shares in the top range?
Perfection in this field cannot be attained, there will always be some risk, but I will teach you how to buy securities when they are a bargain, and to hold with patience for the inevitable rise. To be successful in the market you must adhere to your original common sense concept of buying low and selling high. You must learn to recognize your own gullibility when it tends to overwhelm you and to cultivate patience, your best asset if you have it .
I will teach you the many pitfalls of the market. When you know how to avoid these, your success is partly assured. There is, to my knowledge, no safer way of determining when to buy securities than following my instructions as outlined in How to Make the Stock Market Make Money for You.
If you have been a long time “fundamentalist” you may find it very difficult to abandon your way of thinking and get aboard my train of thought. You need not be a “genius” nor have a “flair” to make money in the stock market, nor do you need a large amount of capital.
I will warn you of the hazards of short term speculating, but will teach you how to make long range profitable predictions. With patience and unemotional common sense you will discover that you have a road map to success in the stock market.
It has been said that you must know a great deal about the company in which you are about to invest. You may learn a great deal, but will this knowledge indicate with any degree of certainty what direction the price of its shares will move? Will this knowledge forewarn you that its stock is too high, may have become technically weak, and is subject to panic selling within a matter of only weeks?
Of course not. The fallacy of knowing a “great deal” about a company lies in the fact that this knowledge may be too little and too late. You may be years behind what the directors know. Also, a method of accounting may have been chosen that can exaggerate or hide the true picture until too late.
I will teach you that it is better to buy a second rate stock when it is unpopular and unwanted—-by the public that is, and seemingly unable to rise, than it is to buy the bluest of the blue chips after they have soared.
I will teach you that “insiders” can control the price action of a stock and the emotional public more easily than they control the earnings of a company.
I will teach you how easy it is to avoid being a “high level investor.” I will tell some very sound reasons for opening a margin account, instead of paying for your stock in full.
There is nothing more difficult than success in the stock market, yet this success is attempted by so many who are so unqualified. But if you can read a road map, you can read my instructions and share in the benefits of our capitalistic system, under which has developed the highest standard of living ever known to man.
