In Top Stocks 2013 Martin Roth once again applied his tried-and-tested selection criteria and rigorous analysis to determine the best public companies (representing low-risk, long-term value) for share buyers in 2013.  This definitive guide to the top Australian listed companies presents all the key information in an easy-to-read format, giving any share buyer, regardless of their experience, the chance to build a successful stock portfolio.

Now following the half-yearly company reporting season, Martin reviews the stocks that appeared in Top Stocks 2013 and provides updated commentary and data as to how these companies are faring. Additionally Roth provides an overview of how the financial year is tracking and looks ahead to 2013-2014 and the trends that are likely to shape the sharemarket.

Top Stocks 2013 and Top Stocks 2013 Half-Yearly Update cut through the noise and hype to assess every company on the same criteria, with a focus on profitability, debt levels, and dividends.
