We’ve done several interviews with popular investors and fund managers over the past 12 months, but so far we’ve resisted the urge to look beyond the UK… until now.
Mark Minervini is one of the biggest names in trading in the United States. He built his reputation with a stunning track record, and his approach has caught the eye of investors everywhere. He was interviewed in Jack Schwager’s excellent Stock Market Wizards and later wrote his own book, Trade Like a Stock Market Wizard.
Mark’s strategy echoes a lot of what you find in small-cap, fast-growth strategies, and he uses a very refined set of criteria to find what he calls superperformers. For a start, he’s sceptical about traditional valuation metrics and much more interested in earnings growth and price momentum. He then marries his checklist of fundamentals with specific chart signals to find stocks that are breaking out – and then sells them before they break down.
We’ll be doing the interview in the coming days, so if you’d like to ask any questions please feel free to add them in the comments below. Thanks!
