When you buy shares of a company and watch the company's performance, it's called investment. When you buy stock and watch it go up and down, it's called speculation. That's the distinction made by Benjamin Graham in his book The Intelligent Investor, which is kind of a layman's version of the greatest investment book of all time, Security Analysis: Principles and Technique, by Graham and David Dodd. If you've been successful in the stock market you may not need this book, but you might be able to afford this First Edition which is in moneyblows books and music. Or this Fourth Edition which was revised in response to market conditions in 1960-61.
