The Ideal System

One of the most intriguing methods of stock selection we have seen comes from Raymond Hanson Jr. and Robert K. Mann in their book entitled Non-Random Profits. Their stock selection system (The Ideal System), based on results from 647 observations over a 39 year period, produced a remarkable average gain of 466% over a three year holding period. To quote Hanson and Mann ... "At first glance it might appear that such a system is too good to be true ... " but "...we can assure you that the evidence we have compiled proves beyond reasonable doubt that the system works. And it works because it is based on the simple but powerful concept of cyclical motion." - Dominion Securities - Jan. 1980


From The Foundation for the Study of Cycles, Vol. 30, 1979, No. 1

In about three hundred cases, the A-B pattern was not only followed but preceeded by a major price peak. By measuring from peak to peak, evidence of three different cycle lengths was found:

Number   Average Length
of Cases   Months Years
25   90.04 7.50
249   111.36 9.28
29   152.24 12.69

It is interesting to note that the length of the dominant cycle of 9.28 years corresponds to one of the "master cycles" noted by Dewey as does the 12.69 year period. - Michael G. Zahorchak

Book Reviews
I've been reading investment books before I was old enough to open a brokerage account. Despite getting an early start, a lot of my education in the markets has been spent learning what NOT to do and paying my dues. I've subscribed to many investment research websites, followed many guru's, and have traded actively for many years across a variety of strategies. You name it, I probably have tried it. Beyond that I have also worked as a professional securities analyst and trader for a number of years. That said Non-Random profits stands out as one of the best methods for compounding wealth that I have come across to date. In fact it has been one of the most important books I've read on investing since Reminiscences of a Stock Operator. Not only that, but Mr. Mann has been kind enough to go out of his way and speak candidly with me about the approach on a variety of occasions. I will be always grateful for the wealth of wisdom he has passed down to me in his work. There are a lot of folks these days feeling disillusioned with life and see little opportunity in the world. Well they're just not looking in the right place; if only this book could open their eyes. Whether you're trying to squeeze out a living or you have substantial assets, this book is a must read. For me, following the discipline will be my early ticket out of the rat race. My only regret is that I did not find this book earlier in life.
I recommend "Non Random Profits" to anyone wanting to handle their own investments. The book shows proven theories on simple investment practices.
This is one of the easiest systems to apply and the results speak for themselves!
