The contemporary bull market has produced a new brand of investor: the active individual investor. This stock investor knows the basics and is ready to take the next step. This text shows these investors techniques that have been used by the professionals. The author uncovers techniques and distills ten years of covering the markets for such publications as "The Economist", "New York Times", and "Money" magazine into 25 hard-hitting tools and tactics to beat the market. Where most investment books demand the reader to follow their prescription to the letter, these tools can be combined into stand-alone strategies to improve investment performance. The reader can pick and choose the ones that fit into their individual investment style.
