Announcing The Complete Business Analysis Service

Three Day Complete Business Analysis Of Your Entire Business… Anywhere In The World

Running a business is hard enough.  But if you don’t know your numbers, know what’s happening in your industry, and what’s coming in the future, then it’s almost impossible to run a successful business.

According to the United States Small Business Administration 1/3rd of small businesses close within their first two years of operations.  And only half of new small businesses last beyond five years.

According to a U.S. Bank study, “a whopping 82% of businesses fail because of cash flow problems. ”

Just because you’re starting a business doesn’t mean you understand what goes into making that business profitable.  Or the metrics that show if your business is doing well or not.

I can help…

I’ve got 10 years of experience valuing and evaluating businesses.  Finding their competitive advantages and strengths while also figuring out what their weaknesses are so they can be improved on.

If you’re looking to increase profitability, improve efficiency, turn your inventory over faster, improve cash flow, clean up your balance sheet to improve cash and lower debt, I can help with all these.

I can also help with the following problems as well…

  • Do you run or own a business and have tried to improve it without luck?
  • Maybe you’ve run your business for years but now want to sell and don’t know how to value your business?
  • Is your competition outpacing you and you don’t know why?
  • Or maybe you’ve inherited a business and just want to sell but don’t know how to value the business.

To find our more go to the following page Complete Business Analysis which has the full information on this service.  And more importantly, how I can help you grow revenue, find your competitive advantages, value your business, improve profitability, sell your business, and achieve your business dreams.

Preliminary Analysis Training Video for Client

Preliminary Analysis Training Video for Client

In this video, I made a preliminary analysis training video for a Value Investing Coaching Program client.

In the video, I take the client through everything I do on a preliminary basis.  Explain why I look at everything I do.  Explain what everything means.  And most importantly, why everything I look at is important in the context of evaluating an investment.

Below is an edited transcript of the first part of the video… You can watch the full video further below.

And one last note before getting to the transcript of the video…

The client picked this company for us to do a real-time and real-world analysis on because he was interested in this company as a potential investment.

I’d never seen or evaluated this company before meeting and talking with this client.

***

Since we’ve already talked about this company a bit on a preliminary basis, I’m doing things differently than I normally would on a preliminary analysis.

I’m also going through this slower than usual so I can explain what everything means.

The first thing I do is go to Morningstar, open up the key ratios tab and the financials tab in another page so I have those handy and ready.

The first thing I want to mention here is that I was able to find its ticker on Morningstar unlike the other day when we were talking.

It’s listed on the Frankfurt exchange on Morningstar under the ticker SGQ.

You’ll notice SGQ lists in Euros on Morningstar as well.  Make sure to always notice which currency the company lists on financial sites.

Go to Google Finance, same company but this time the company lists on the Singapore Exchange under the ticker B7K.

I’m going to reference the Google finance listing throughout but I’m going to be using the company’s financials listed on Morningstar because that’s where I do all my preliminary analysis as they have more information.

But because of this difference please keep in mind some of the numbers may be different from the ones you’re seeing.

This is because the Google finance numbers are i n Singaporean Dollars (SGD) and as mentioned above Morningstar lists its numbers in Euros.

The first difference you’ll notice is the difference in market cap of 28.9 million Euros on Morningstar and 44.4 million SGD on Google.

This is likely due to a conversion rate exchange difference and I’ll look at that later.

The next thing I do is get right into the preliminary analysis.  The same one I use for every company I evaluate…

Announcing The Value Investing Journey Shop

Announcing The Value Investing Journey Shop

Last week I announced the official launch of the Value Investing Journey – Value Investment Coaching Program…  Something I’d been thinking about for years.

Today, I’m again announcing something else I’ve thought about for years…

The Value Investing Journey Shop.

So far, the shop has all 12 past Press On Research issues.  And no one other than paid subscribers of Press On Research and members of select mailing lists has seen any of these.

Some highlights from these issues are below.

  • As of this writing, the average gain for all 12 picks is 50.3%. These picks are crushing the stock market since April 2015 I began releasing them.
  • As of this writing, the stock market has produced a 15.8% return.
  • This means my exclusive and unreleased picks since April 2015 have outperformed the stock market by 34.5 percentage points.
  • Two companies I recommended grew from sub $500 million market caps to $1 billion plus market caps as of this writing.
  • One company as of this writing is now past $2 billion in market cap.

You can choose to buy each issue individually at its full price or buy all past issues at the current 33% discounted rate.

In these issues not only do I recommend fantastic companies – and one terrible one to avoid – but I continue what I began in How To Value Invest and teach you what the metrics I use mean, why they’re important, and what they mean for the investment thesis.

By buying these issues you’ll also see a bunch of new things since the last time I released a recommendation article.  Some of which are below…

  • Refined valuations
  • Refined and expanded investment processes
  • Analysis and valuation of investment float
  • Some of the new metrics and analysis tools I use including Owner’s Earnings.
  • And more

I’ll continue adding more products to the Shop as time goes so make sure to check back regularly.

If you’re interested in seeing my past stock picks that have destroyed the market since April 2015 and learn along the way go to the page linked below.

Launch Of The Value Investment Coaching Program

Launch Of The Value Investment Coaching Program

I’ve thought about this program for years, have mentored and taught dozens of people over the last several years – thousands if you count those who’ve read How To Value Invest – but have not had time to officially launch a coaching program until now…

Today I’m writing you to announce the launch of the Rivera Holdings LLC. and Value Investing Journey – Value Investment Coaching Program.  While just the beginning – this is the culmination of years of thought and planning.

We’ll continue making improvements as we continue on this journey together, but I’m ecstatic today to announce the official release of this program.

There is some brief info about the program below.  But to see full information and sign up for any of the programs go to the following page – Value Investment Coaching Program.

Value Investment Coaching Program

So you’re interested in becoming a better value investor so you can manage your own investments or further your career.  But you’re stuck, not progressing, and beginning to get frustrated and don’t know what your next step should be…

I’ve been there…

Spending several hours, days, or months in this state is not only destructive to your progress but also your psyche.

If you stay in this state for too long the frustration will become too great and you’re likely to give up on becoming an excellent value investor.

What do the greats do when they’re stuck and want to go to the next level?

They work with a coach, find a mentor, and train.

Even the great Michael Jordan as illustrated by the quote below admits that without his coach Phil Jackson he wouldn’t have ended up as great of a player as he did.

So Why Don’t You Have A Coach or Mentor?

If the greatest athletes in the world have coaches and mentors, and increasingly the titans of business do as well, why don’t you have or think you need a coach?

If you’re looking for a mentor or coach to help point you in the right direction in business and life and help get you to the next level why haven’t you reached out to them?

Maybe you’re like me when I started and feel you don’t have the connections, network, or resources to reach out to someone like this.

When I began learning about value investing I couldn’t go to college or get a “normal” job due to severe health issues.

And none of my family, friends, or connections had any knowledge about value investing so I had to learn everything myself.

This led to years of anger, frustration, and lost time that I can never have back.

But I can now help you avoid that same fate…

I’m writing this message today to announce the opening of the Rivera Holdings LLC. and Value Investing Journey – Value Investment Coaching Program
