Investing in the stock market is increasingly becoming an art at which very few are adept. It takes more than just raw statistics and market reports to gauge which stock has the potential to give the investor a handsome return. How to Choose Winning Stocks: Rewriting Formulas for Investment shows investors how to distill data from the markets to select profitable stocks, avoiding investment risks and traps.

The book is based on the value investment principle advocated by such investment greats as Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffett. The author explains formulas and data analysis methods through which the reader can calculate the potential for profits of company stocks. Analyzing the fundamentals of a company, the common sense approach taken by the book is easy to understand and practise.

The key areas covered in the book are:

- Valuation ratios related to market capitalization

- Analysis of the EPS and Assets Per Share models

- Identifying companies based on quarterly results

- Sector-wise profitability analysis

- Mutual Funds

- Unconventional ratios to identify stocks

- Investing tips from available literature

A ready reference for stock market investors, market analysts, investment bankers, and portfolio management services companies, the book is replete with illustrations, diagrams and examples of Indian origin to give even a lay reader an understanding and appreciation of the work. It will prove to be an extremely rewarding investment guide for both amateur and professional investors.

The biggest strength of this book is its simplicity. The author has been able to reiterate the basics of value investing which a retail investor must follow. Basic investing principles like the fact that risk and return go together and one should invest based on analysis rather than tips, have been stressed upon. The author has suggested some ratios for filtering companies for investment based on his own experience. Retail investors would find this useful as a `primer' for investing. The book is a good attempt to spread financial literacy amongst the masses by simplifying the principles of value investing in a language that can be understood by a layman.

-- Global Business Review

The best thing about this book is that it is a simple book, with simpler language, no mathematical and statistical models, well illustrated by taking actual data from the stock market and above all, perfectly practical and one can practice the same. It is hoped that this book will prove to be an extremely rewarding investment guide for both amateur and professional investors.
