 FREE INVESTMENT BOOKLET EXPLAINS WAYS TO
 BENEFIT FROM STOCK MARKET FLUCTUATIONS
 HOUSTON, May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Albert Einstein considered compound interest -- receiving interest on interest -- to be "the most amazing mathematical phenomenon."
 When applied to investing, the same phenomenon can yield spectacular results, and it doesn't require the genius of Einstein to understand.
 "Dollar cost averaging," as the concept is known on Wall Street, helps an investor avoid some of the bumps and bruises that result from a fluctuating market, said Sheila Horn, spokesperson for American Capital Management and Research Inc. of Houston, Texas.
 In essence, it involves investing a given dollar amount on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis, regardless of the stock market's moves, and letting the investment compound.
 "This simple principle works by allowing investors to buy more shares when prices are low and fewer shares when prices are high," Horn said. "Rather than timing market ups and downs, you turn them into an advantage."
 Compound interest is widely recognized as one of the most reliable ways to turn a modest investment into a solid nest egg. For instance, investing only $1,000 a year -- less than $20 a week -- at a 10 percent annual return will yield $108,182 in 25 years.
 American Capital offers an eight-page booklet complete with tables showing market fluctuations and rates of return to show how this principle can work for any investor.
 Free copies of "Guide to Systematic Long Term Investing" are available from American Capital Booklet, P.O. Box 3121, Houston, Texas 77253-3121.
