I came across this book which is selling at a discount at Times Book store. Looking at a title, you can tell why it is selling at a discount. There is a newer copy “The 100 Best Stocks to Buy in 2016” but I shall be grabbing that later.
The stocks listed in this book are all US based stocks. I have always been keen to invest in the US stock market and thus I grabbed this book to understand more.
The authors (Peter Sander and Scott Bobo) classify the list of stocks into a few categories.
- Conservative Growth
- Aggressive Growth
- Growth and Income
In each stock analysis, the authors indicated how many times the company raises dividend for the past 10 years. This is especially useful if you are an income investor. Current yield information was also provided.
The author also indicates the reasons to buy and reasons for caution so we can do our own evaluation on the risks.
In summary, you can use this as a reference book when investing in the US stock market.
A good reference book, I give it an average rating of 3 stars out of 5.
