How to get rich buying stocks.

Published 1959 by D. McKay Co. in New York .
Written in English.

About the Book

There has never been a Wall Street book like this. Not a dull text, not a complicated theory, it spotlights three simple but spectacular situations:
(1) Growth companies whose common stocks have gained 500% in ten years.
(2) The eight essentials of those companies which made their stocks rocket.
(3) A list of companies in today's "Surging Sixties" to which an investor may apply Dr. Cobleigh's Rule of 8.

First Sentence

INTRODUCTION In our modern society there are two main ways of getting rich—by investing in real estate or by buying stocks. But before you do either you must earn, or get your hands on, surplus money. This is money you don't need for living expenses, travel, education, doctors, minks or motor cars. The reason most people never get rich is that they can't save a dime. They feed the piggy bank only to raid it; or installment payments keep them ever in hock. So if you want to travel the road to riches learn to save! Life on the cuff may be beautiful but it won't keep you in Cadillacs! Once you've got a few thousand together you're on the launching pad to opulence. We mentioned the two fortune building arenas—real estate and stocks. Real estate investing is far older. When Jacob swindled Esau out of Pappy's pastures, or Joshua arranged for occupancy of the Promised Land, there were no stock certificates around to invest in—only land. Fact is—the first stock company wasn't founded until the time of Queen Elizabeth, and she has the honor of being the first woman stockholder. Real estate has built some of the greatest fortunes in history and we have nothing but kind words to say about putting money in land or buildings. But we're dedicated to stocks—those beautifully engraved, easily negotiable pieces of paper that, selected wisely, bought right, and patiently held, may make you rich. The Rockefellers, the Morgans, the Mellons, the Woolworths—all made great fortunes in the stock market—so why can't you? Perhaps you can, if you learn the rules of the game and combine knowledge and good judgment with a little bit
