While there is no surefire way to choose winning stocks, James O’Shaughnessy believes that looking at the past is the best way to predict where the market is headed in the future.

In his newest book, “Predicting the Markets of Tomorrow: A Contrarian Investment Strategy for the Next Twenty Years” (Penguin Group, 2006), O’Shaughnessy argues that investors can predict where the markets are going by simply looking at historical long-term trends.

Performance data in this article is from 2006. Huh?!

What is the point in giving an article more than five years old? Of all the institutions AAII would know that O'S has come out with a new edition of 'What Works on Wall Street?' and it has some new screens and he has gone beyond the price-to-sales ratio. I hope AAII develops screen(s) based on the new edition.

This does not behove AAII to give such dated infromation

I agree with Madhu. If I pay for a subscription, I expect new material, otherwise, what's the point in subscribing?

Yup, AAII's newsletters always seem to churn old articles. Seems like it has been this way for awhile.
