Today’s investor falls into two broad categories: frantic, over-caffeinated day traders, and those who blindly turn their financial future over to the “market professionals.” There is a better way. A rich vein of investment opportunities goes overlooked by individual investors and remains largely ignored by Wall Street. At Tulane University’s Burkenroads Reports program, Peter Ricchiuti and more than 200 students work together to uncover less-followed, frequently misunderstood, and seemingly un-sexy companies that often produce superior investment returns. Their research on these “orphan stocks” powers The Burkenroad Mutual Fund, which has outperformed 99% of all stock funds over the past eleven years. In Stocks Under Rocks, Ricchiuti shows how they do it – and how a little well-informed stock sleuthing can pay off big for you, too. You’ll learn why “underfollowed” small-cap equities now offer exceptional investment opportunities, and how you can leverage the surprising hidden advantages available to individual investors – including the ability to trade in stocks that don’t generate the volume and liquidity institutional investors require. Fact is, there’s very little innovative equity research on Wall Street anymore. That gives you a powerful advantage – and Ricchiuti gives you the principles and simple techniques you need to take advantage of it!
