Still, each day, smart investors around the world choose to trust William J. O’Neil, publisher of Investor’s Business Daily and author of the million-plus bestseller How to Make Money in Stocks.

  • Buy only the best stocks at only the best times
  • Recognize chart patterns that indicate enormous stock moves, both up and down
