Somewhat Dissapointing

This book leaves much to be desired. The author doesn't explain when to sell, except referring to a "reset". He doesn't explain to sell at a 50% profit, or at 52-week high, etc. Also, he never quite explains where to get the numbers or exactly how to make the calculations. Perhaps the printed book provides a little more, but the audio was disappointing.

must have for value traders

this is a great book for anyone looking to learn the strategies behind value trading.

the contents include a 5 step system that must be followed before buying a stock in order to remove any emotion and misinformation with your investents

after listening to this book I feel I have a good idea how to determine if a company is under valued but I feel that step 5 should be step 1. step 5 is seeing if the stock is at or near it's 52 week low. because it's a lot of work involved in the other 4 steps to only find that it is trading at a high point.

Great Strategy

Any additional comments?

I found the book easy to follow and have implemented it in my portfolio. Luke took the time to call me to discuss a couple of questions I had on the filter calculations. I would highly recommend it to any investor.

Great theory, great read.

Great book. Author was committed to getting the reader to grasp his theory. He didn't give the readers exactly what they wanted though. The readers should understand how and why the theory works, but is left to do some homework of their own. Which is good because if the author was to give the reader everything it's my opinion that the reader wouldn't be successful. He actually taught the reader how to fish. It's up to the reader/ myself to eat for a lifetime.

A Well Thought Out and Researched Formula

If you could sum up The 52-Week Low Formula in three words, what would they be?

Proven, Timeless, Essential

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Author, I enjoyed hearing his life story and how it formed his investment philosophy that would launch his career as a money manager.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Why most investors lose money.

Any additional comments?

When I first purchased the audiobook I was prepared for a dry manifesto on how to pick through the wreckage on Wall Street of the unloved stocks littering the 52 Week Low list. I was pleasantly surprised at the reasoned and repeatable formula the author presented to me in an audiobook that I truly didn't want to end. Very enjoyable.
