Author, Andrew Sheldon

Global Mining Investing is a reference eBook to teach investors how to think and act as investors with a underlying theme of managing risk. The book touches on a huge amount of content which heavily relies on knowledge that can only be obtained through experience...The text was engaging, as I knew the valuable outcome was to be a better thinker and investor.

While some books (such as Coulson’s An Insider’s Guide to the Mining Sector) focus on one particular commodity this book (Global Mining Investing) attempts (and does well) to cover all types of mining and commodities.

Google - the price of success

I am one of Google's greatest supporters, but in the realm of the web, there is a huge price to pay for success. Looking back on a number of service providers, it makes for an interesting growth model. First there was MSN offering free Hotmail accounts. I used to love their site until they became too successful. Their site was so popular that everyone wanted a Hotmail account. The consequence was that their service became really slow.
I see the same thing happening with Google. It adds more features making Google an even more compelling service to use, but the service is starting to deteriorate. The signs I see are these:
1. Requests to close mail accounts I am not using
2. Congestion or service down on weekends
3. Service down for Google Chat function

This is a problem for Google shareholders because if the market is pricing the Google stock at a premium because they have a history of surprising the market on the upside. When they show a performance below expectations, I think you can expect them to collapse in value. It will be interesting to see if they can re-invent themselves.

Actually I think the greater threat to Google is on the revenue side. I think people are starting to loose interest in the adverts its clients place on their sites. I've noticed that I don't get as many clicks as before despite my web traffic growing.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life. Check out the "feedback" in our blog for stories of success by customers of our previous reports.
