Slater was a peer of Goldsmiths and a very successful investment manager. The Zulu Principle documents Slaters approach es to investing through the lens of several of his peers and even US-based investors like Warren Buffett. Easy to read, informative and at times unique, this book will be appreciated by anyone seeking to expand and challenge their understanding of markets and investing. I am reading this book right now and I would say the author uses a similar approach to William Oneil's.
If you like to invest in small growth stocks then I would suggest you read both or either one. Jim Slater focuses more on long term growth of the business, but William Oneil emphasizes technical analysis in addition to the fundamentals. I hope this helps.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I first read it many years ago and wanted to give it a fresh look. It is a very good book for those who are not professional investors but want to be clear on the basics in order to manage their own investments. Although it focuses on small growth shares for long term value growth, it adds some additional nuggets on how to handle larger cap shares which have proven right. More detailed informations are written in here. One person found this helpful. During the summer InvestingByTheBooks will review some older books that we never got around to writing about although we think they are important.
Jim Slater, today aged 86, is the British chartered accountant, Sunday Telegraph columnist and Leyland Motors employee who turned corporate raider before the term even existed and was during a period the dominating figure of the City of London. Not a practice seen with much approval in pre-Thatcher Britain. In the book Slater instead takes the viewpoint of his son, the minority investor. The main point that has given book its name is that to have an edge over competition an investor needs to focus on a niche that suits his temperament and then perfect his execution within this his circle of competence.
In general a smaller portfolio investing in smaller companies will then have an advantage.

To help the reader choose among niches that have potential to be profitable, Slater lists and discusses five options: To choose among prospective investments Slater lists a number of investment criteria that a modern day quant would describe as a combination of value, growth, size, momentum and quality factors. Chief of the factors is the PE-ratio in relation to the growth rate and the PEG-ratio should ideally be below 0, According to the author the best bargains can be found among under-analyzed small companies with growth rates of 15 to 25 percent.
The other niches are described in much less detail. With turnarounds timing is paramount and triggers like a change in management could imply a rebound. Asset situations refers to the Ben Graham type of asset based value investing and Slater requires the Price-to-Book and the Debt-to-Equity ratios to be max 0,5 and the company must show some profit and it should be in an industry with okay prospects. Few books are equally well suited in helping a prospective young investor raise his game. This is a review by investingbythebooks. This is, as it goes, a beginner's book. It explains what a share is; what statistics are calculated and used to help to gauge the value of a share, and so on.
However, even if you already know such things, you should still read this book. It teaches common-sense investment. I suppose that, maybe, common-sense isn't something that is taught, but it can't hurt to stop and think about why you are or aren't buying a particular share stock. So 5 stars for the book - it will help you to keep your feet on the ground, which is a necessity for any truly good investor.

It is a simple guide on selecting shares in undervalued, unnoticed and usually small companies, using mathematical principles and common sense. However like everything else, you have to actually apply the principles and be disciplined in your activity to make it pay for you.
