This classic on investment techniques by a pioneer of modern investment theory introduced Fisher’s investment philosophies and theories, and discussed a stock’s worth in terms of potential growth for the first time. It laid the foundation for current investment practices, describing the benefits of long-term growth stocks and their emerging value, as opposed to short-term trades for quick profit.
