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.

Silly acquisition for BHP-Billiton

This is a silly acquisition by BHP-Billiton. If you are going to invest in might oil & gas prices they should be looking at greenfields areas, or green technologies. For example, they ought to be exploring offshore NZ or India (as BP is doing). There is also compelling reasons for it to enter algal technological development, though it might well argue that it makes more sense for it to just purchase the technology when someone else has developed it. The problem is - the technology might be acquired before they can even get their hands on it by one of their competitors. Might it be difficult to know who will be the leader? My guess the oil company throwing the greatest amount of money at it..... at least you will get a market advantage....rather than throwing it away on market speculation.
The reality is that these companies are more interested in building on economies of scale, adding market premiums rather than creating wealth. They are accreters of assets, not builders of assets. Which means they just take advantage of cheap capital in global capital markets to add value, which is passed through to shareholders after they take their bite. Yes, it was always about the CEOs....leave the risks to the small enterprise which really build wealth. The small companies find the oil; the large companies spill it around the world's oceans.
OK, a little unfair. :)

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.
