If you′ve picked up this book, you probably recognize the value of fundamental analysis, but aren′t sure that you can master it.

Getting Started in Fundamental Analysis contains important insights that can help you manage risk and make more informed investment decisions.

It′s designed to help you put those tools to work in identifying risk levels, making valid and reliable comparisons, and picking stocks for your portfolio. It is this activity deciding which stocks to buy, how long to hold them, and when to sell that lies at the center of a successful and profitable investment program.
