  • Book Review: You Can Be A Stock Market Genius By Joel Greenblatt

    Originally published in 1997, "You Can Be A Stock Market Genius" remains popular today and is enthusiastically endorsed in a number of reviews on the internet. The author, Joel Greenblatt, ran hedge fund Gotham Capital racking up a 50% average annual return over a 10 year period spanning the mid 80′s to the mid 90′s. "You Can Be A Stock Market Genius" reveals how he did it and suggests that a motivated individual could do it too, even if he wasn't all that smart. Mr. Greenblatt has since acknowledged in subsequent books that these methods require more work than the average individual investor can muster. His two subsequent books "The Little Book That Beats the Market" and "The Big Secret for the Small Investor" suggest stock screening methods that outperform the market without much effort from the individual.

  • MicroCapClub Radio Program Episode 8

    MicroCapClub contributors Sean Marconi and Neil Cataldi join me in celebrating MicroCapClub's 1st birthday (July 1st). Also in this episode we talk about liquidity drying up over the summer time months as investors are on vacation, and the opportunities that arise because of this. Neil Cataldi gives us an overview of Top Image Systems (TISA) business strategy and their potential competitive advantage over Mitek (MITK). We also talk about Abtech Holdings (ABHD), Destiny Media Technologies (DSNY), and Auxilio (AUXO) that announced significant news events over the last couple weeks.

  • Book Review: Hedge Fund Market Wizards By Jack Schwager

    As a full time investor I'm always interested in learning from other investors. It has been a long time since I read a 500-page book in a week, so that should tell you off the bat what I thought of the book. Jack Schwager is one of the leading experts on trading and has written several books on the subject. This book, Hedge Fund Market Wizards (2012), is a 4th edition of sorts. Jack originally wrote Market Wizards (1989), The New Market Wizards (1992), and Stock Market Wizards (2001) that are a series of interviews with the greatest stock traders and hedge fund managers of the last few decades.
