From the Publisher

Legendary money manager Peter Lynch explains his own strategies for investing and offers advice for how to pick stocks and mutual funds to assemble a successful investment portfolio.

Develop a Winning Investment Strategy—with Expert Advice from “The Nation’s #1 Money Manager.” Peter Lynch’s “invest in what you know” strategy has made him a household name with investors both big and small.

An important key to investing, Lynch says, is to remember that stocks are not lottery tickets. There’s a company behind every stock and a reason companies—and their stocks—perform the way they do. In this book, Peter Lynch shows you how you can become an expert in a company and how you can build a profitable investment portfolio, based on your own experience and insights and on straightforward do-it-yourself research.

In Beating the Street, Lynch for the first time explains how to devise a mutual fund strategy, shows his step-by-step strategies for picking stock, and describes how the individual investor can improve his or her investment performance to rival that of the experts.

There’s no reason the individual investor can’t match wits with the experts, and this book will show you how.

I couldn’t afford it, I told him. “You won’t be able to afford it next year either,” he said. “Only by then, you’ll have spent another year in rent money you’ll never get back.” Within a month of that conversation, my wife and I put in a bid to buy our first home. The down payment check was the largest either of us had ever written, by a factor of at least 10. Then we spent more money we didn’t have, to renovate. It was the best investment we ever made. Well, until the next big investment

How to Stop Short-Term Thinking at America’s Companies

There was a time, half a century ago, when what was good for many American corporations tended to also be good for America. Companies invested in their workers and new technologies, and as a result, they prospered and their employees did too. Now, a growing group of business leaders is worried that companies are too concerned with short-term profits, focused only on making money for shareholders. As a result, they’re not investing in their workers, in research, or in technology—short-term costs that would reduce profits temporarily. And this, the business leaders say, may be creating long-term

Riding Out Necessary Risk

THE MOMENT people retire, I’ve found, their perspective on their portfolio suddenly shifts. For 40 years they were long-term investors, saving for tomorrow. But instantly they’re thinking only about the present, and they’re hyper-focused on risk. They turn terrified overnight. This transformation can pose a problem. New retirees may decide that the payoff of growth isn’t worth enduring the market’s ups and downs, so they invest too conservatively. That will hurt them later on. If your portfolio doesn’t grow, inflation will eat up the income you thought would support you forever. You have to l
