stock picking for profit simon thompsonI have been reading Following the Trend by Andreas Clenow. I have also been reading Stock Picking for Profit by Simon Thompson, who is the small caps expert for UK magazine Investors Chronicle. I have to say this is a very good book which talks about how to analyse company accounts and find hidden opportunities in the markets.

Unfortunately, this is not a very well known book and hard to get hold of. It doesn’t seem to be available on Amazon. I got mine from YPD Books and the delivery was very quick.
