How Peter Lynch destroyed the market

Peter Lynch didn't just beat the Street ... he absolutely destroyed it.

Reflect on his record for a second. Lynch ran Fidelity's Magellan Fund from 1977 to 1990, beating the S&P 500 in all but two of those years. He averaged annual returns of 29%. That's a mind-blowing figure. It means that $1 grew to more than $27; if you invested as little as $37,000 with him in 1977, you were a millionaire in 1990.

Fortunately for us, he's willing to share his secrets. To achieve his stunning track record, he clung to eight simple principles.
