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.

Graincorp - at support - a good buy

Looking for a great stock in the rural sector. How about a stock that does well no matter how the economy is fairing? Well consider that companies make money in different ways. Some pay a price for meat or metal which is subject to volatility. Others make money from commissions. Well think of Graincorp because in bad times you and foreigners dont stop eating. Better still, when you are a starving peasant in Asia, you first eat your own food, then you eat cereals because they are cheaper than meat. Rice is the staple in Asia, but other cereals are growing, such as bread, pasta, etc. Pasta and noodles are cheap and easy to store. Bread gets mouldy.
Graincorp makes a profit margin for transporting wheat (dry bulk cargo) to the ports. Its a good season this Spring so expect a good return from this company. There has been good rains across Eastern Australia. The stock has of course fallen with other equities turmoil.
The stock is a technical buy as well, having fallen to support. See the attached chart.

Stock picks for dad's in a chilly market

So what am I recommending to my dad today?
Really the only things you should be buying are
1. Food - Australian Agriculttural Company, Qld Cotton Co (taken over I think), Namoi Cotton. they are getting good rains in Nth NSW so should be a good reason. Agric commodities will recover with gold because demand outlook good. Hmmm.. will those ethanol refining plants close at $65/barrel for oil, so avoid corn, sugar. Better wheat, eg, Graincorp, and AAC
2. Gold - Lihir, and I can find you other stocks over the next couple of days.

Phil lost money on platinum because he doesn't listen. I said buy at $3.80 support, it reached that, then rallied to almost $5, but its such a volatile stock. He accepted your buy & hold. Worse that that - he likely said oh, Andrew's right, I better jump on at $4.50-$5.00, not wanting to miss out, and not talking to me, and he probably paid the highest price of the rally. It will recover though, so he should hold. Its not the first stock I would buy for platinum because its black empowerment in Africa, explosure to Zimbabwe, but its kind of the only one..... I think Platinum will out-perform silver, which will out-perform gold, but gold stocks will do very well, and its hard to get exposure to the others. You suggested PLA - which is also Sth Africa. Medium to long term you will be hurt on a strong RSA currency. That will be a big problem. So better to stay with gold in Australia. Because the collapse of industrial metals and energy will make gold better because they will keep the $A weak, so earnings in Australia gold prices exceptional. Only gold and food will strengthen the export revenues. Sugar & corn will be weak I guess because of energy-related sectors since the oil boom.

I say buy LGL (Lihir) because gold has found support I believe if you look at the charts, But watch as the market falls today, see if gold goes up as stocks go down. Gold is very stable, but strong in $A terms, so the gold producer stocks will eventually respond to that. Its just they are being dragged down, so you need to accumulate this week. Best buying mid to late-week (end Oct'08).
Dad, just looking at some stocks. Mincor has $120mil in cash. the company is currently valued at $140mil. Lower nickel prices but offset by weaker $A, so earnings still good. But long term gold will do better because stronger food and gold prices will push up $A, but not nickel because there will be slack demand for a while, but MCR are over-sold, so you can trade them.
See my blue chips blog I have chart for GNC. Food & gold, and MCR because its special. Has cash & high grade nickel.

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.
