The stock market is a turbulent place where fortunes dramatically rise and fall. People new to investing in the stock market need to understand the various intricacies involved before they can expect to reap a profit from their investments. You Can Be A Stock Market Genius: Uncover The Secret Hiding Places Of Stock Market Profits is a book that helps people in understanding the ways by which they can make successful investments in the stock market.
The author of this book, Joel Greenblatt, has penned down the insights that he gained from his own experiences as a stock market investor. In this book, the author discusses the advantages that individual investors have over professional money managers, and the ways by which those advantages can be leveraged to their maximum potential.
According to the author, individual investors are able to perform focussed investing and don’t need to maintain a unnecessary portfolio of numerous stocks like money managers. Because there are no time restraints that money managers usually have to deal with, individual investors can go ahead and evaluate their stocks over longer periods of time. In this way, they can afford to wait for those catalysts that drastically increase the value of stocks.
The author emphasises the importance of investing in spin-offs, which are usually those firms that branch out from the parent organisation. You Can Be A Stock Market Genius: Uncover The Secret Hiding Places Of Stock Market Profits is a useful book for amateur investors looking to gain a strong footing in the stock market.
Throughout the book, the author stresses on the importance of meticulous, individual research prior to investing in any particular organisation. You Can Be A Stock Market Genius: Uncover The Secret Hiding Places Of Stock Market Profits was published by Touchstone in 1999, and is available as a paperback.
The Wall Street Journal Joel Greenblatt can indeed teach you about the market and how fortunes can be made there.

Follow the Yellow Brick Road — Then Hang a Right
It doesn’t make sense that a book can teach you how to make a fortune in the stock market. After all, what chance do you have for success when you’re up against an army of billion-dollar portfolio managers or a horde of freshly trained MBAs? A contest between you, the proud owner of a $24 “how to” book, and these guys hardly seems fair.
The truth is, it isn’t fair. The well-heeled Wall Street money managers and the hotshot MBA’s don’t have a chance against you and this book. No, you won’t find any magic formula in chapter 8, and this isn’t a sequel to
How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, but if you’re willing to invest a reasonable amount of time and effort, stock market profits, and even a fortune, await.
Okay: What’s the catch? If it’s so easy, why can’t the MBAs and the pros beat your pants off? Clearly, they put in their share of time and effort, find while they may not all be rocket scientists, there aren’t many village idiots among them either.
As strange as it may seem, there is no catch. The answer to this apparent paradox — why you potentially have the power to beat the pants off the so-called market “experts” — lies in a study of academic thinking,
