    ITEM#: 2583509

    During Peter Lynch's thirteen successful years as manager of the Fidelity Magellan Fund, it was the top-ranked general equity mutual fund in the nation. One thousand dollars invested in Magellan in 1977 was worth $28,000 when he handed over the reins of Magellan on May 31, 1990.

    Since his retirement from the Magellan Fund, Lynch continues as a member of the board of trustees of the Fidelity Group of funds and writes a column for Worth magazine. He lives with his wife, Carolyn, and three daughters in the suburbs of Boston and is the author of the investment classic, One Up on Wall Street.

    Legendary money manager Peter Lynch explains his own strategies for investing and offers advice for how to pick stocks and mutual funds to assemble a successful investment portfolio.

    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, 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.

    In Beating the Street, Lynch for the first time explains how to devise a mutual fund strategy, shows his step-by-step strategies for picking stock, and describes how the individual investor can improve his or her investment performance to rival that of the experts.

    There’s no reason the individual investor can’t match wits with the experts, and this book will show you how.
