This work offers a summary of the book "E-STOCKS: Finding the Hidden Blue Chips Among the Internet Impostors" by Peter Cohan.
Peter Cohan is president of his own management consulting firm specializing in the evaluation of emerging business opportunities created by new technology. He is the author of e-Profit: High-Payoff Strategies for Capturing the E-Commerce Edge.
At present, Internet stocks are not in favor because of the dot-com crash which occurred in mid-2000.
However, to use that as a reason to permanently avoid investing in Internet stocks would be to ignore the fact that these will certainly be the emerging growth companies of the future once all the hype has died down. According to Peter Cohan, what is needed most is a disciplined approach to Internet investing. At the heart of any such investment strategy must be a search for Internet companies that have real, viable and sustainable business models.
In E-Stocks, the author offers seven methods to help investors find the profitable Internet stocks of the future. This thoroughly-researched book also provides the reader with useful tips and tools to invest in the hyped world of Internet stocks.
