One Up on Wall Street, written by Peter Lynch with John Rothchild, is a bestselling book that discusses how to use what you already know to make money in the market. It serves as an extensive guide for investors. Peter Lynch is America's most famous money manager who asserts that average investors can become specialists in their own fields.
A few tenbaggers will turn an average stock portfolio into a star performer. He offers guidelines for investing in cyclical, turnaround, and fast-growing companies. As long as you invest for the long term, Lynch says, your portfolio can reward you.
This timeless advice has made One Up on Wall Street a 1 bestseller and a classic book of investment know-how. Lynch's investment record puts him in a league by himself. His mantra: Average investors can become experts in their own field and can pick winning stocks as effectively as Wall Street professionals by doing just a little research.
Now, in a new introduction written specifically for this edition of One Up on Wall Street, Lynch gives his take on the incredible rise of Internet stocks, as well as a list of twenty winning companies of high-tech '90s. That many of these winners are low- tech supports his thesis that amateur investors can continue to reap exceptional rewards from mundane, easy-to-understand companies they encounter in their daily lives.
Investment opportunities abound for the layperson, Lynch says. By simply observing business developments and taking notice of your immediate world -- from the mall to the workplace -- you can discover potentially successful companies before professional analysts do. This jump on the experts is what produces "tenbaggers", the stocks that appreciate tenfold or more and turn an average stock portfolio into a star performer.
The former star manager of Fidelity's multibillion-dollar Magellan Fund, Lynch reveals how he achieved his spectacular record. Writing with John Rothchild, Lynch offers easy-to-follow directions for sorting out the long shots from the no shots by reviewing a company's financial statements and by identifying which numbers really count. He explains how to stalk tenbaggers and lays out the guidelines for investing in cyclical, turnaround, and fast-growing companies.
Lynch promises that if you ignore the ups and downs of the market and the endless speculation aboutinterest rates, in the long term anywhere from five to fifteen years your portfolio will reward you. This advice has proved to be timeless and has made One Up on Wall Street a number-one bestseller. And now this classic is as valuable in the new millennium as ever.

By Tezza Fantastic book! When you're buying a stock, your buying the future earnings of a company.
Learn how to evaluate companies from an ownership perspective. Plus, learn common pitfalls of investing. Plus, Mr. Lynch's anecdotes and observations will keep you chuckling. Obviously written by a person "who has been there and done it" in spades. Perhaps some examples are a little dates. Perhaps if Mr. Lynch could launch an updated book with more recent examples and observations please, please? Great book! Beneficial read for all investors.
By Zach Peter Lynch does such a great job explaining how you do not have to work on Wall Street to be successful in the stock market.
Lynch also believed there is a lot of noise with investing, and people put too much effort in the wrong areas. He did not like the most popular or pretty stocks, instead he liked good, boring companies that will consistently produce cash flow and grow immensely in the long term. I liked hearing how Peter Lynch takes everyday undervalued companies that are commonly used, not just talked about, and studies to see how fundamentally sound they are to invest in.
Lynch does not believe in getting caught up in daily stock prices, he sought after undervalued companies that are consistently growing for years. His amazing track record speaks for itself as he outperformed all other fund managers consistently for over two decades.
Peter Lynch offers a lot of very beneficial investing advice in this book and it will be very educational for anybody wanting to get involved in the stock market. I really enjoyed reading One Up on Wall Street and recommend it to all investors.
He gives useful and intelligent tips, he's humble, he tells funny jokes, he's able to say things that follow the Aristotelian logic. I must admit it. Despite the trauma, I decided to make an exception for Mr. Lynch, as this little book is wildly praised among the investment community. I'm glad I read it! For the professional, the value comes from the fact that part of the content here definitely won't be found in the usual Graham-Buffett-Fischer-Klarman-Mauboussin-Montier combo.
Peter Lynch's work is somewhat original, in the sense that it places emphasis on some aspects of a good investment that are, at most, briefly mentioned in the classic works above.
For the layman, the content is much more useful than what you hear from Jim Cramer and your sales broker combined well, that's not very difficult. If Lynch's advice aids you to buy only one bagger stock and it can help you on it , that's awesome enough. The only drawback of the book is that, sometimes, it oversimplifies complex things. This seems to have been done with the intent of not confusing the layman and trying to make clear explanations to the general public.
This is indeed a noble purpose. But, to some, it may give the misleading impression that the collective of very intelligent market participants are doing stupid things all the time.
Don't get me wrong: despite attracting some of the best talent and brains around, the group wisdom of the market does stupid things on a few occasions. But that's the exception, not the rule. Finding truly outstanding opportunities in the market is very hard.
With that warning made clear, almost everything else here is worth the read. I definitely think you should put this one in your priority list of investment books.
