Celebrating forty years of trusted stock guidance

Over the past 40 years, The Stock Trader's Almanac has established itself as the only investment tool of its kind that helps traders and investors forecast market trends with accuracy and confidence. Organized in an easy-to-access calendar format, the 2007 Edition contains historical price information on the stock market, provides monthly and daily reminders, and alerts users to seasonal opportunities and dangers. For its wealth of information and the authority of its sources, the Stock Trader's Almanac stands alone as the guide to intelligent investing.

"Jeff Hirsch is following in the great tradition of his father Yale Hirsch, with this nonpareil almanac of Wall Street data. It's a treasure for investors who want to remember the past as they plan for the future."
--LOUIS RUKEYSER, late founding host, Wall $treet Week

"Information is key to successful investing, and investors will find the Almanac a chockablock source of need-to-know stuff."
--STEVE FORBES, President, CEO, and Editor in Chief, Forbes

"I have every issue since 1976 in my bookcase. The Stock Trader's Almanac is an invaluable resource."
--MARTY ZWEIG, author, Martin Zweig's Winning on Wall Street

"The Stock Trader's Almanac should be on every investor's desk. It's an invaluable source of investment advice, trading patterns, and Wall Street lore. It's also fun to read. I refer to it frequently throughout the year."
--MYRON KANDEL, founding financial editor, CNN
