Find great stocks "in your own backyard": master do-it-yourself research techniques for uncovering today's best small-cap equity opportunities! Peter Ricchiuti reveals the secrets of Tulane University's Burkenroads Reports program, where he and 200+ business students work together to uncover less-followed, frequently misunderstood, and seemingly un-sexy companies that often produce superior investment returns. Their research on these "orphan stocks" powers The Burkenroad Mutual Fund, which has outperformed 99% of all stock funds over the past eleven years. You've seen them on CNBC, CNN, and the Nightly Business report... read about them in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. Now, Ricchiuti shows how they do it - and how some well-informed stock sleuthing can pay off big for you, too. You'll discover why "underfollowed" small-cap equities now offer exceptional investment opportunities, and how to leverage the surprising hidden advantages available to individual investors - including the ability to trade in stocks that don't generate the volume and liquidity institutional investors require. Fact is, there's very little innovative equity research on Wall Street anymore. That gives you a powerful advantage - and Ricchiuti gives you the principles and simple techniques you need to take advantage of it. Stocks Under Rocks will be the next classic for every personal investor who wants to find great investments and have fun doing it!
