 Jordan Kimmel’s MAGNET® Stock Selection System has been unearthing top-performing stocks since 1997. Now, he shares the knowledge that may help you to reap lgains by showing you how to own shares of the right stocks before they become the darlings of Wall Street. Drawing on 25 years of experience, and his close relationships with today’s top money managers, Kimmel redefines risk and shows investors how to outperform the "closet indexers" that currently manage most mutual funds, giving insight into how to profit from the appreciation that follows.

 Praise for The MAGNET® Method of Investing

"Rather than encouraging the scatter shot approach of broad diversification, Jordan focuses on the rifle-shot Magnet® method of identifying a limited number of quality stocks to improve your chances of beating the market."

—Sam Stovall, Chief Investment Strategist, Standard & Poor’s Equity Research

"Jordan Kimmel is one of the brightest market observers out there, and he is certainly a rising star that will be an important person to follow marketwise for many years."

—Michael Burke, Coeditor, Investors Intelligence, Inc.

"… is an amazing, detailed, and intuitive book. I especially enjoyed Jordan’s insights into diversification, the inefficient market, and identifying stocks that are in their ‘sweet spot…’ This is simply an incredible book that is a must-read for both beginning and serious investors."

—Louis G. Navellier, Chairman and founder, Navellier & Associates, Inc.

"… examines investing from a different perspective… a unique alternative to diversification. Jordan Kimmel has analyzed the methods of the best investors through time and introduces his robust stock selection process."

—David M. Darst, CFA, Managing Director and Chief Investment Strategist, Morgan Stanley Global Wealth Management Group
