How to Turn a Stock Market CRASH into CASH

Investment Conversations That Will Change Your Life

by Stephen Laube

Everyone says to buy on a stock market crash… but no one has told you HOW. This book covers all types of dips and crashes: normal variation, the three named dips (pullbacks, corrections, and bears), and a fourth dip that sorely needs recognition. Using only the fully diversified SP 500 index and its long history, this book shows you when and how to buy, as well as when to take profits for all the "on sale" scenarios. The book also covers the use of leveraged versions of the SP index to take advantage of all post dip rallies and introduces the investor to a free web based financial tool that you can use to evaluate the past performance of stocks, etf's, and mutual funds. The tool also allows you to do Monte Carlo simulation to answer the "how much can I safely withdraw" question.  


Two stock market elective courses in two different MBA programs and a Certified Financial Planning program didn't teach the author how to make a dime in the stock market. Over decades of investing, Steve has developed a simple, safe way to make money in the stock market. Steve's method does not use any risky techniques. Stock picking, hot sector/hot country chasing, momentum buying, charting, options, etc. aren't necessary! No need to guess the market top or bottom. Steve teaches how to use the long, detailed history of the "fully diversified" SP500 index to put the odds in your favor by using an advanced accelerated dollar cost averaging technique to progressively buy low and sell high. Both the buy and the sell are done after the SP500 has moved already, and the buy or sell is based on likely circumstances according to 80 years of SP500 index history. To summarize, Steve's technique shows how to buy the SP500 on sale rather than panic sell, which is what most investors do. Did you know a bull market has always followed a bear market? Did you know that at the end of a calendar year the SP500 index is up about 75% of the time? Did you know that the most common return for the SP500 is "over 20% per year" and that happens about 40% of the time? Steve shows you how to use these basic SP500 behaviors to make money. The interesting and foolproof "accelerated dollar cost averaging technique" results in buying low and selling high, and all but eliminates the chance of losing money. Quit missing opportunities and riding stocks like a roller coaster. Steve shows you how to easily make 200-2000% mastering his simple techniques. The introduction to leveraged SP500 index funds is invaluable, and Steve shows that using leveraged funds can result in making up to 2,000 percent during the rally that has always followed a bear market. 

About the author
Steve started life as a geeky scientist , earned a BS in chemistry, put his name on three patents, co-authored a chapter in a chemistry book, and then earned his MBA. Just before he retired 20 years ago, he took the CFP program at a local Atlanta college and passed the Certified Financial Planner boards. Despite his formal training, Steve learned next to nothing about how to make money in either stocks or his other love, real estate. Steve developed the simple stock strategy taught in this book on his own and has used it since 1983, enabling him to retire early. Steve's big picture goal is to help eliminate financial illiteracy and this book will help many people learn how to handle the ups and downs of the stock market. Steve lives in Georgia, where he is active in the Georgia Real Estate Investors Association. A highly rated instructor at GaRIEA, he has taught courses on investing in student housing, condos, the stock market, and in mastering passive income.
