The stock market has been my obsession for more than four decades. I wrote a book about it called "Forty Years A Speculator." It has been reviewed 48 times on Amazon.com. I am the anti-blue chip investor. The stock market has many dark secrets but perhaps the darkest one is the insane belief that investing in nifty-fifty stocks will make you rich. What will make you rich is investing in small-cap and mcro-cap that are selling for huge discounts from intrinsic value because no one even knows that they exist.
