If you want to be in the right place at the right time, it pays to show up a few minutes early.

Fortunes can be made by finding "the next big thing." Some of the best investments over the past few years came from Silicon Valley. Over the next decade, we'll see even bigger opportunities from the internet of things (IoT), 5G, augmented reality, cryptocurrencies, automation, artificial intelligence, longevity science, and new sources of energy.

Foresight Investing provides a remarkable toolbox for improving your trading skills. These tools will help you identify where to find the best opportunities, what companies to invest in, when to buy and sell, and understand why news events can influence the market.

Inside, you'll find:

•Six megatrends for the next decade, including stock watchlists
•Ten things you never knew about the P/E ratio
•Multiple stock valuation methods
•Principles of momentum
•Complete system for technical analysis of stock prices
•Exit strategies for successful (and unsuccessful) trades
•Essential portfolio management techniques
•Tips for using style and sector rotation to generate higher returns
•Tools for understanding company narratives
•Intermarket relationships between stock, bond, currency, and commodity markets
•Demographic trends with implications for consumer spending patterns


A wide-ranging guide to the paradoxes of investing.

In these pages, Lee seeks to advise readers on all the variables of investing in the modern market, “understanding where to invest, what to buy, and when to pull the trigger.” He intends his book to function as a kind of Rosetta Stone for investing terminology and thinking.

In part, it acts as a primer on the ideas and concepts of investment basics, naturally centering  around spotting trends and accurately gauging potentials. Lee concisely and insightfully looks into some specific trends, from the boom in renewable energies and the resultant growing need for better energy-storage technology to the so-called “gray boom” that encompasses ideologies and technologies connected with the fact that people are living, and working, far longer than they were a century ago.

Lee guides readers through all the various mathematical and financial concepts of the investing world, using charts and graphs and quick, digestible segments to explain balance sheets, earnings statements, and valuation metrics, among other elements, and delve into their hidden layers. He demystifies concepts such as valuation for beginners and breaks down the interplay of subjective elements that drive prices and general trends.

The sections of Lee’s book that speculate on future possibilities are absorbing, as they start with current tech before verging into science-fictional notions that could become reality in the near future; whether he’s writing about smart materials, solid-state batteries, smart technology, cryptocurrency, or automation and artificial intelligence,

Lee breaks down the basics in clear, intriguing, and always readable language. The sheer amount of detail that Lee uses in analyzing trendlines is bracing, and even readers who are already familiar with the world he describes will pick things up from this book.

An inclusive and deeply detailed overview of the investing world.
