How to make money in stocks - William O’Neil. The intelligent investor is good too but too detailed. The ‘how to’ book summarizes lessons from a variety of stock books. Just right for a busy consultant 😊

@LEK1, not trying to hate on what seems like a very reasonable answer but that is terrible advice. There was a research paper published not too long ago where they looked at the recommendations (sell, hold, buy) and the price targets set for individual stocks and they found that the advice given was as good as flipping a coin. Essentially no statistical difference showing any amount of alpha generated based on these so called expert opinions. Realize that most financial institutions generate revenue whenever you are actively trading positions based on these recommendations. It’s in their best interest to make sure you are actively involved in trading various types of securities.

How to get started in stocks by Morningstar is a great 3 book series

+1 @D1

There are sites that track financial analyst. What they pick and how those things have performed historically. With so many people managing and forming opinions I don't know why you would need to redo any of that work. Just leverage what experts have already concluded.

Thanks D1! I’ll pick it up this weekend!

Crowbar and a power drill, both are very persuasive in convincing CFO’s to give you inside info on stock tips!
