Paul W. Allen, DBA


Dr. Paul W. Allen has a bachelor’s in professional accountancy (BPA), an MBA, a DBA in Accounting, and is a CPA. Holding the distinction of Professor Emeritus from Mississippi State University, he has authored numerous academic and professional journal articles in accounting and finance, served as a reviewer on many other articles, and has had some of his work republished as chapters in several books.

Even more important than these qualifications, however, is the performance of his own stock portfolio, a portfolio that produced a 38.73 percent annualized return across ten years from early 2003 through early 2013 while, across the same period, the S&P 500 produced a 7.93 percent annualized return. Dr. Allen’s Christian worldview supports the notion that following a wise investing approach is consistent with good stewardship of the financial resources God has entrusted to us.

To encourage others to adopt the same ideal of good stewardship, Dr. Allen is sharing his investing strategy in his book, Choose Stocks Wisely: A Formula That Produced Amazing Returns, so that others can reap its rewards and use those rewards to change the world around them as well.

About the Book

Though his background included being a CPA and holding a doctorate degree in accounting, having taught graduate courses in accounting and finance for many years, and having worked in accounting for a large oil company, Dr. Paul W. Allen did not experience immediate success when he first began investing in common stocks. As a result, he turned to his extensive background in accounting and finance to develop a system for consistently buying quality companies at bargain prices. Since devising the system just over a decade ago, he has achieved portfolio returns far above normal market returns. Dr. Allen’s buying method is simple to learn and does not require an accounting background to understand.

An informative, practical, and essential investing tool for beginner and experienced stock investor alike, Allen’s step-by-step system will show you how to apply his highly successful personal balance sheet buying formula for common stocks. Significantly lowering investor risk while maximizing profit through a system that purchases quality stocks trading at bargain prices, his model will teach you to use online tools to filter the total population of common stocks into a smaller pool of stocks that can then be analyzed using his unique buying formula. From learning the concept of the balance sheet, how it pertains to investing, and how it blends with market expectations, he lays the groundwork as he outlines the process for choosing stocks and how to allocate resources to them. While he can’t guarantee success—no one can—he can guarantee you that it has worked for his own portfolio.

Intended for anyone interested in investing, Allen’s eye-opening how-to guide puts the emphasis where it needs to be so that the money goes where you want it to: your pocket. Filled with easy to follow explanations that don’t require a doctorate to understand and apply, Choose Stocks Wisely: A Formula That Produced Amazing Returns provides the tools you need to see the stock market in a different light—tools that can work for you starting today!

How We Met

It was a bright and sunny day on the Florida Gulf Coast in 2011 and I happened to be wearing my New Orleans Saints ball cap on the beach.  Paul Allen also happened to be walking by donning his Saints hat and we instantly formed an alliance and sense of recognition.  Though I may have had a Louisiana State University purple and gold koozie and he wore Mississippi State shorts, we found that we had much in common.  Since this initial meeting, his wife Mickie, two lovely daughters Beka and Hannah and grandson have become dear friends.  We have shared many a good meal, with an emphasis on pizza appreciation, good times and our Saints kinship is one of many of our shared interests.  Paul is a man who seeks to follow Christ and acknowledge Him in everything.

I am quite thrilled that he listed me in the acknowledgements of his first book!
