The 1960s that gave birth to the Go-Go Years on Wall Street, was the same time around which a significant cultural shift saw the early success of William J. O'Neil, an outstanding young trader at securities firm Hayden, Stone & Co.
While many investors were relying on P/E ratio as a key stock screening metric, our founder O'Neil studied historical models of winning stocks and developed a proprietary trading methodology that blends quantitative and qualitative analysis-A method we still use today.
