THE LITTLE BOOK
of Big Profits from Small Stocks:
Why You’ll Never Buy a Stock Over $10 Again
By Hilary Kramer
Editor, “GameChangers,” “Breakout Stocks Under $5” and “High Octane Stocks”
Foreword by Louis Navellier
For years the traditional investing community has viewed low-priced stocks with disdain. But according to 25-year investing veteran Hilary Kramer, this is one area where individual investors can have an undeniable edge on Wall Street, especially now.
Thanks to the recent market sell-offs, today all kinds of stocks have been dragged down under $20, $10, even $5. Many are well-known corporations such as Bank of America (BAC), Dell (DELL), Ford (F), General Electric (GE) and Xerox (XRX), while others are under-the-radar companies not yet discovered by Wall Street’s “big money.” Bottom line: There are more opportunities in low-priced stocks than ever before.
Unfortunately, for too many investors, the conventional response to market sell-offs is to panic, and pull their money out of the market. But Kramer begs to differ. She believes there is no better time to buy, and she’s living proof that it works. “For me, downturns mean investors have an unusually high number of exciting buying opportunities. It’s simply a matter of being able to sort the winners from the losers. That’s no easy task, but it can be done, and it’s something I’m passionate about teaching investors how to do. By making smart decisions, investors can buy stocks poised to ‘break out’—a proven way to significantly build, or even rebuild wealth. I know firsthand. It is how I’ve built my own wealth.”

In The Little Book of Big Profits from Small Stocks (Wiley, November 2011, Hardcover and eBook), Hilary Kramer shows investors step-by-step how to home in on those stocks expected to break out, versus those expected to break down. She begins by introducing readers to three specific types of low-priced stocks:
- Fallen Angel Stocks: These are stocks that were once widely owned and admired, but have since fallen in price and are now selling for a deep discount. These are big, brand-name stocks that you can buy on sale.
- Undiscovered Growth Stocks: As John Templeton once said, it is hard to outperform if you do what everyone else is doing. So instead of buying big growth stocks like Apple (AAPL), these are under-the-radar companies filling a powerful market niche. Think of these gems as the “next Apples” of their respective industries.
- Bargain Bin Stocks: These are companies selling for less than they are worth. Buying these types of stocks is like buying a Picasso for $10 at your neighbor’s yard sale and reselling it for a big profit.
Kramer shows investors how to find low-priced stocks in all sorts of sectors, from technology to retail to financials, to so many more. She also devotes a chapter specifically to the healthcare and biotech sector, where she has made particularly big profits from small stocks over the years.
The Little Book of Big Profits from Small Stocks is essential reading for anyone looking for expert guidance on one of the hottest areas of stock investing today. See the accompanying website (with educational videos) for more: www.bigprofitsfromsmallstocks.com.
