Martin Roth


Finance journalist Martin Roth is back with his tried-and-tested analysis of the best public companies in Australia, based on low risk and long-term value. Now in its 19th year of publication, Top Stocks provides quick and easy access to vital information and statistics on the top publicly listed companies in an easy-to-read, straightforward format.

Roth says this book is written for those wishing to exercise a degree of control over their portfolios but feel the need for some guidance. It is also relevant to investors who are just starting out. While it’s not a how-to book, it’s an independent and objective evaluation of leading companies, based on rigid criteria.

In 99 company profiles, Roth assesses profitability, debt levels and dividends for each top stock. There’s research detailing each company’s overall outlook. Investors looking to put their money into stocks for both the long and short term will find this guide extremely useful.
