About the Author
William J. O'Neil is the founder and chairman of Investor's Business Daily and the author of the million-copy best-seller How to Make Money in Stocks. Born in Oklahoma and raised in Texas, William J. O'Neil began his investment career as a stockbroker. He started investing with less than $500, but through continued study, mistakes, and a desire to find out exactly how the stock market really worked, O'Neil realized a 20-fold increase in his own account in 26 months from October 1962 to December 1964. He then purchased a set on the New York Stock Exchange and opened his own investment management and research firm, William O'Neil + Co., Incorporated, at the age of 30. Founded in 1963, William O'Neil + Co. was the first to create a computerized stock-market database, which is used today by over 400 major U.S. institutions across the country, including banks, insurance companies, pension and mutual funds, corporations, and government organizations. O'Neil wanted to provide individuals with the same critical data the professionals use in order to make smarter investment decisions so he launched Investor's Business Daily in 1984. By virtue of a proprietary contract with William O'Neil + Co., Investor's Business Daily is able to access the historical securities database for use in publication of the newspaper.
