Book description…

A financial writer describes events and forces impacting national and global markets, renders an opinion as to their future direction, and offers advice. The 1920s saw the rise of financial writers who explained the booming stock market in what came to be called a “New Era,” in which expectations were that no shadows darken the horizon. President Calvin Coolidge immortalized the catchphrase for the prosperity of the 1920s.

Richard W. Schabacker, Princeton educated to be a writer, spent nearly a decade as Financial Editor for Forbes Magazine. He wrote 150 articles and nearly 300 columns that covered business conditions, stock market trends, interest rates, market psychology, rules of behavior, cycles, life on Wall Street, and common-sense investing. He educated investors and traders, and in the pursuit of that objective, he wrote two books and an investment course. He cautioned that all that is written about the stock market serves as the beginning of knowledge. For as long as we engage in financial markets, we must continue to study, plan, think, and learn from our experiences.
Dick Schabacker was convinced that the Stock Market Crash of 1929 that ended talk of a New Era was not reason for investors and speculators to lose confidence in the stock market as an institution.

The Crash and its aftermath moved him to concentrate on the technical analysis of financial markets. Technical factors use the empirical information derived from the actions of buyers and sellers in an open market. Research has shown that properly implemented technical analysis can increase profits and reduce the risks of investing. Yet, he did not favor one form of analysis over another. All factors that exert force in financial markets must be studied to glean a composite judgment. The prudent investor and successful speculator must use both fundamental and technical analysis. Favoring one to the exclusion of the other is like waiving a full set of weapons before entering the battlefield. He articulated the central postulates of technical analysis. First, prices weigh all the active factors and forces that exert themselves to make up security market movements. Second, certain patterns, resulting when particular conditions prevail, that in the past forecasted definite future trends should continue to forecast future trends. The logic of technical analysis is the principle that prices progress in trends that are more likely to continue than to reverse. This principle assures that an investor will ride with the trend and will switch when the trend reverses, thus limiting losses and letting profits run. The most important element in successful investment or speculation is the study of the history of market movements. He espoused that no theory or advisor is exact or infallible, but that certain principles contain sufficiently well-based wisdom that if properly used will result in market profits. Critical observation, exercise of common sense, and logical reasoning are the essential adjuncts to financial market analysis. Simplicity was the keystone of his rules for successful investing.

This is the biography of a visionary writer who following his bliss, working in highly charged years believed to be a New Era, brought maturity to his art and advanced a distinct form of investment analysis.

Book description…

This book is my trophy case. It is the people, the stories, the smiles, laughs, tears and things that just can’t be made up, while just “serving a few pork sandwiches”. Best of all, I will be sharing many of the stories and “trophies” I was told and some I had the opportunity to experience with Sonny Tillman himself, Many of the “Sonny stories” are in his own words. In today’s world, just about every darn restaurant in the world is selling Bar B Q. Most of it comes out of a bag or a plastic bucket and many who sell it don’t even have wooden tables and chairs, let alone wood to cook with. Bar B Q competitions have sprouted up everywhere and at each of these events, some body is going to win a trophy. Usually there are several of them given out. I know guys who have a room slap full of trophies and each of them would tell you that the real trophies are not the ones you can hold in your hand or put in a display case. The real trophies are the customers, team members and people you meet along the way. It is the stories of life in America. If Norman Rockwell had been a cook, he would have owned a BBQ restaurant.
