Develop a Winning Investment Strategy -- with Expert Advice from "The Nation's #1 Money Manager" Peter Lynch's "invest in what you know" strategy has made him a household name with investors both big and small. An important key to investing, Lynch says, is to remember that stocks are not lottery tickets. There's a company behind every stock and a reason companies -- and their stocks -- perform the way they do. In this book, newly revised and updated for the paperback edition, Peter Lynch shows you how you can become an expert in a company and how you can build a profitable investment portfolio, based on your own experience and insights and on straightforward do-it-yourself research. There's no reason the individual investor can't match wits with the experts, and this book will show you how. In Beating the Street, Lynch for the first time: * Explains how to devise a mutual fund strategy * Shows how he goes about picking stocks, step-by-step * Describes how the individual investor can improve his or her investment performance to rival that of the experts of the investment clubs.
