Discover the investing strategies of company insiders--to earn insider--level returns Investors looking to garner exceptional long--term returns must first learn how to stop following the investment herd, which virtually guarantees average or below--average results. The Vital Few vs. the Trivial Many gives independent investors the knowledge and instincts to tip the investment scales in their favor, by explaining which information is accurate and valuable as opposed to that which is misleading and financially hazardous. The author, praised by Barron's and SmartMoney for his candor and techniques, discusses how to look past media hype to discern what the "Vital Few" or corporate insiders--those who know their companies best--are doing. Muzea then shows investors how to successfully incorporate those techniques into their own portfolios, intelligently evaluating the stock market and finding valuable gems that have yet to be discovered by the masses.
