Table of Contents
book is a modern investment classic and an international bestseller.
A very simple idea, which the author calls The Zulu Principle, powers its
fame and success — the idea that to make big profits, an individual investor
should focus on a narrow area and fully master a few things. Such mastery then
gives the individual investor an edge over professional investors who have
access to vast, up to date information and news, analysts, charting experts,
computer models, and what have you.
book reveals and describes 5 different ways of applying The Zulu Principle for
making big profits by buying shares of dynamic small cap growth companies,
turnarounds, cyclical companies, shell companies, and industry leading
companies. The author also explains when to buy such shares and, even more
important, when to sell them — in essence, everything you need to know to make
extraordinary profits from ordinary shares.
"Innovative, imaginative, original and fresh with sophisticated investment methods made to seem simple and glaringly obvious — if only you'd thought of them before" Ivan Fallon, Sunday Times, London
"Jim Slater's book is very readable, alive and fascinating. For anyone seriously interested in investment, it is essential reading" Lord Hanson
"Jim Slater . . . rode the waves with unprecedented skill, imagination and charisma . . . his book is an essential building block for understanding investment" Sir James Goldsmith
trained as an accountant. He first became interested in investment in the
sixties, while a director at a British Leyland subsidiary. After publicising his
methods via a column in The Sunday Telegraph, he launched the investment
conglomerate Slater Walker, which he chaired until 1973. The company was known
for its aggressive acquisitions in every area from banking to property. It
collapsed in the 1973-4 recession, leaving Slater bankrupt to the tune of about
Â£4m in today's money.
He fought his way back to prosperity
through private property deals and writing for small investors. In 1990, he
published his main work, The Zulu Principle. This popularised the use of a
financial ratio devised in America, known as the PEG, or Price: Earnings Growth
Ratio. He has since devised a monthly publication called Company REFS (Really
Essential Financial Statistics), which helps investors to apply his system by
listing PEGs and other key ratios and information on all UK companies.
Now living in Surrey, U.K., but far from
retired, he is still very active in educating investors through his books and
lectures. He is also a very active investor and a substantial shareholder in a
number of public companies.
