I use the ideas in these books to manage my "Core Portfolios" described in "Kirk Lindstrom's Investment Letter"
Lazy Person's Guide to Investing by Paul Farrell.
Paul offers many great core portfolios that all should consider before they consider anyone’s newsletter. In Ch 25 Paul talks about having "two brains" where you put 90% in what I call "core" and 10% into a "Mad Money" portfolio or what I prefer to call "explore."
Sense on Mutual Funds : New Imperatives for the Intelligent Investor
by John C. Bogle, Founder of Vanguard Low Cost Mutual Fund Family
Bogle has written a terrific book that makes its points over and over. Low cost funds, passive investment strategies, etc. His statistics, and we know they can always lie, are irrefutable that high cost, front-end load funds can never, as a group, match funds that use his proven strategies. There are always exceptions, but you think you are smart enough to pick those funds in advance?? Index funds give you a shot of at least matching the market, which as they say, ain't bad over time

Analysis of Stock Trends
By Robert Edwards, John Magee / Hardcover
Review: This is the first and best book
I ever read on charting way back in 1966. It was based on the original
work of Richard W. Schabacker, who wrote "Technical Analysis and Stock
Market Profits" back in the 30's. They both deal with trend lines and
detailed chart patterns (head and shoulders, double tops and bottoms,
tops, etc.) which may or may not interest you. First
recomended by "DanG" on March15,1999
note: Edwards and Magee is considered
one of the bibles of technical analysis. I use it often to help
me pick buy and sell targets for stock in my "explore portfolio.
