Smarter Stock Picking: Using Strategies From the Professionals to Improve Your Returns by David Stevenson

How do the world's most successful investors achieve an out-performance of the market? What helps them determine what stocks to buy?

For decades famous and not so famous investors have been using a variety of strategies to screen the market and narrow down potential shares. Analysis shows that it's more lucrative to focus on a set of shares with defined characteristics than to invest across a wide variety of markets.

Using proven research based studies, Smarter Stock Picking walks you through each screening technique and shows you how to deploy key strategies that will help you successfully pick the right stocks so that you can get the right returns.
