HOW TO PROFIT FROM THE CORONAVIRUS RECESSION

50 Actionable Investment Ideas

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Recessions are a rare time when you can buy great businesses at great prices. When times are good, these companies are expensive. The only time when you can get reasonable, or even bargain prices, is when there is uncertainty and fear.About a year before writing this book, Skonieczny embarked on the project of researching every company on the NYSE, Nasdaq, OTC market, and TSX, studying the best one by one, and determining which he would most like to own if they were reasonably priced. He did not predict that a worldwide pandemic would spark a global recession just weeks after he finished.How to Profit from the Coronavirus Recession shares a value investor’s perspective on the current economic climate and features the top 50 investment opportunities Skonieczny discovered through his research. Many of these companies will be around for a long time and will continue to be good investments any time they are priced correctly.

HOW TO VALUE A STOCK

Guide to Valuing Publicly Traded Companies

As a value investor, you want to buy stock in great companies for great prices. This means comparing what a stock is really worth to its current price, so you know if it is cheap, expensive, or fairly priced. But how do you know what a stock is really worth?

In this book, you will learn about various metrics and methods used to value a stock. There is no single method that is the best to use. Instead, there are several methods that you can add to your valuation toolbox. Then, you can choose which one is the best fit for a company’s particular situation. When a business is losing money or closing its doors, a liquidation value might be the most appropriate. When a company’s cash flow is predictable, the discounted cash flow analysis method may be best.

Concepts covered in this book include:

-earnings multiples
-P/E ratios
-EBITDA multiples
-enterprise value
-free cash flow
-owner’s earnings (Warren Buffett’s invention)
-discounted cash flow analysis, and
-dividend discount model

With these methods, you will be able to value many different kinds of companies so you can decide whether a particular stock is a good buy. You will also better understand the reasoning behind an analyst’s opinion of value when reading investment reports. Knowing how to accurately value a stock will help you make better investment decisions and take advantage of opportunities in the stock market.

GOLD PRODUCTION FROM BEGINNING TO END

What gold Companies do to Get the Shiny Metal into Our Hands

GoldProduction3DCover

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Gold mining is arguably one of the most misunderstood industries in the field of investing. Many investors lack a basic understanding of how gold is produced and have unrealistic expectations about how long it actually takes. They are confused when mining companies encounter hurdles that must be overcome. Some seem to think that starting a mine is like turning on a switch. As a result, the prices of gold mining stocks are subject to wide volatility. In this book, you will learn what it takes to produce an ounce of gold from beginning to end. You will read about all four stages of gold production, from exploration and mining to processing and refining. The topics covered include the different types of gold deposits and how they are found, as well as drilling techniques and how deposits are classified. Other topics include mining methods, such as bulk extraction and sublevel stoping, and an overview of special techniques used to process refractory ore – the most difficult type of ore to process. Finally, you will learn about doré bars, gold purity requirements, and the exchanges that specialize in buying and selling gold. Buy it from Amazon


HOW TO GOLD COMPANIES FINANCE THEMSELVES

Have you ever read a press release from a gold mining company about various capital raises that left you scratching your head? This is because mining companies have unique financing vehicles that differ from those used by traditional companies. In How Gold Companies Finance Themselves, you will learn about financing options that are available to gold mining companies at each stage of development.
Because such companies are capital intensive, as an investor, you will benefit from an understanding of how they raise money to fund the progression of their properties. Topics covered include sources of capital, alternative financing options, and top stock exchanges for mining companies. You will also learn about private placements, royalty and streaming agreements, and earn-in and joint venture agreements, as well as equity crowdfunding, equipment financing, and the use of cash flow for future growth.

SCUTTLEBUTT INVESTOR

You’re an investor who likes to do your own research. You’ve read the annual report, you’ve studied the financial statements, but do you really know the company? How can you get an edge? Scuttlebutt Investor picks up where Skonieczny’s previous book, Due Diligence: How to Research a Stock, left off. Whereas the research process described in Due Diligence involves studying a company’s SEC filings and learning about its industry, Scuttlebutt Investor focuses on how to gather information that can only be obtained by interviewing sources such as members of the management, employees, suppliers, and more. Each of these players brings a unique perspective based on the type of role they fulfill for the company. This book takes readers through the process of finding and interviewing these sources, and serves as a practical guide for investors to refer to each time they study a company.
