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.

KDDI - Is this a turnaround story?

For investors who use the CFD platform of CMC Markets, you might be interested in this stock from Japan. KDDI is the 2nd largest mobile phone service provider in Japan. The company has been undergoing a slow restructuring. The company I believe has a lot of debt, thought I don't see it going broke. Rather I would not be surprised to see it perform a wonderous turn-around for two reasons:
1. Rationalisation of services - the company has acquired an agglomeration of brands and cell phone standards. Its task is to get customers onto a single standard. These brands include Tuka (which I used to use), AU and PHS.
2. Expanded sales - I would expect KDDI to benefit from cut backs in customer expenditure. I envisage that customers will shift to lower cost plans, i.e. pre-paid options, particularly students and single people.
3. Persistence of low interest rates should allow them to make in-roads
4. Investor (Vodafone? re-entry) or capital raising

Its competition is Docomo, which has always offered a premium & family service. I think Vodafone is the most likely company to enter the market. It has previously sold out of Japan, having sold to Softbank, but I would not be surprised to see it re-enter the market given its experience in Japan, and because of the large market share it will acquire. Anyway, I watch this stock with interest because their share price has sunk back to previous lows.

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.
