It was an unusual research project… Not one in 1,000 investment advisors or newsletter writers would ever consider it. My research partner and I read every shareholder letter issued by companies in the S&P 500 Index. I got the idea from billionaire superinvestor Warren Buffett. Several years ago, Buffett talked about a one-page fax he got from the CEO of a potential acquisition: The quality of the business, he said, "jumped off the page." During our project, we found a few shareholder letters that were that good. And if you study what I'm about to teach you… you, too, will be able to identify companies that "jump off the page" as wonderful investments you'd like to own one day. You won't have to pick stocks anymore. They'll pick you! And it's easier than you think…
