Chapter 1 Essentials of the Stock Market
This chapter gives you the basic information you need to have about the stock market and stocks. The stock market terminology is very large, but this chapter captures what is essential, what you must know. The chapter starts with the very basic concept of what the stock market is and what common stocks are. For a beginner, this chapter is a must.
Chapter 2 Investing in Stocks
This chapter introduces the traditional styles of investing. It also discusses index investing, which is a comparatively newer form of investing. The chapter tells you about the two commonest forms of analysis, viz., fundamental and technical analyses. The chapter gives a primer of financial statements and parameters. The most important part of the chapter is simplified fundamental analysis, which is a method of stock analysis that you can follow.
Chapter 3 Investing in Stocks—the EPS Approach
The EPS approach for stock analysis is fast, robust, and objective. As you will learn throughout the book, traditional answers and how most people operate in the market don’t lead to stock market success. What works is simplicity. Hence, anyone who can “dare” to be simple has good chances of winning in the stock market. The EPS approach is a simple way to analyze stocks.
Chapter 4 The Most Important Stock-Related Issues
In this chapter, answers to the most confusing and most crucial stock-related issues have been provided. Being a stock investor, you are sure to encounter these issues. It’s also certain that you won’t find their answers easily.
Chapter 5 Traits of the Successful Stock Investor
You will be surprised to know that the knowledge of stock analysis and information about the stock aren’t as much important to stock market success as your own characteristics are. This means the way you behave in the market is more important than the way the stock market or the stock you own behaves. The traits of a successful stock investor aren’t innate and can be developed by anyone.
Chapter 6 Stocks vs. Other Investment Vehicles
Why stocks? Why not commodities or bonds or real estate? Stocks are better than any other investment vehicle in many ways. You will know why in this chapter.
Chapter 7 Money Management
This is a bonus chapter in the book. Without carefully managing your money, you can’t be a successful investor. The lessons discussed in the chapter will be useful to you even if you decide not to invest in shares. In this chapter, you will know why many of the traditional investment options are a bad deal and why many people remain poor in spite of having earned a lot in their careers.
Chapter 8 History of Stock Market Crises
A short history of stock market crashes will help you in two ways: (1) You will know what to do during a market crash and (2) you will know what not to do during a market crash. This chapter will tell you about the major stock market crashes and why they happened. History is the best teacher and by learning from it you will be well equipped to deal with a market crash, for market crashes are an inevitable phenomenon in the stock market.
