Ranked One of the Best Value Investing Blogs In The World

Blogging is a lonely and isolating experience…but being listed and nominated as among the Best Value Investing Blogs In The World ignites and stimulates my mind to continue…

You sit behind your computer screen putting together what you think is useful and valuable content for weeks, months, or years and hope for the best.

Unless someone specifically comments or emails their positive feedback and/or questions you have no idea what people think of the content you put out.

And while nothing I do on this blog is for accolades it’s always nice to receive them.

Especially when the recognition is from another fantastic value investing site.

And I found out over the weekend that Value Investing Journey received a great accolade.

The team over at Valuewalk ranked Value Investing Journey as one of the best 60 value investing sites in the world.

The full article link is further below but first I’ll share the introduction to the list.

Preorder How To Value Invest: How I Taught Myself To Become An Excellent Value Investor And How You Can Too

How To Value Invest: How I Taught Myself To Become An Excellent Value Investor and How You Can Too

This book has taken me nearly 5 years of hard work reading and listening to thousands of books, websites, articles, and lectures, and thousands of hours of research, writing, and learning to put together.   The book is geared towards beginner and intermediate level value investors to help reduce the main problem and frustration I had when I started to teach myself; wasted time.  Because of my health issues I could not go to a university to learn how to value and evaluate a company so I had to search the infinite internet myself; page by page, article by article, and book by book.

In the book I have condensed and will share with you all the best information that I have learned from, and some of what I will teach you is below:

  1. How to use the valuation techniques that I use, how to adjust them, and what they mean for the overall investment thesis.
  2. How to properly evaluate a company’s financial reports, profitability ratios, and debt ratios to help decide if the company is a potentially good investment.
  3. I will show you how to factor NOL’s, bad management decisions, float, competitive advantages and much more into your investment thesis.
  4. I will go into great detail about my own thought processes, why I came to the decisions I did, and how to develop your own thought and investment processes.
  5. I will tell you the proper mind-set and character traits that you either need to have or will need to develop if you want to become an excellent value investor.
  6. I will tell you how I make sell decisions now and how I used to make them.  This includes me sharing how I missed out on a nearly 70% gain in 100 days because I didn’t have the proper sell decision processes in place when I was fully invested and how you can avoid the same mistakes.
  7. I will share with you how I do research now and how I used to do research by showing you how I now discard bad companies a lot faster which has saved me a lot of time and leads me to finding better companies quicker.
  8. I will share with you all the best books, websites, and resources that I have learned from.

If you have read this blog from the beginning there will still be a lot of information that I did not include in my original articles that will be included in the book.

I have condensed all the best information that I have learned from over the past 5 years in this book so that you can jump-start your own value investing journey in a much shorter time frame than it took me.  If you learn and put into practice what I show you in the book, work hard, continue to learn, and develop your own proper thought, investment processes, and mind-set than I guarantee that you will be a better at evaluating companies for investment than most MBA’s and professional level investors all for less than 1/3 of the price of ONE college textbook, for a fraction of the cost of going to a university, and you will also be saving yourself YEARS of time from having to find all of this information by yourself like I had to.

As of now the book has just under 62,000 words and should be around 210 pages once converted to eBook and Kindle formats.

Since I have not been able to find anything to set up actual preorders for the upcoming book I have decided to take “donations” as my version of preorders.  If you decide that you want one of the below packages just hit the donate button below the package you want and donate the required amount.

IMPORTANT!!: Unless you want to donate more than the required amount remember that each package is discounted 25% now so donate the amount in parenthesis when preordering.  Once you “donate” I will get all of your information and when the book is released I will send you a coupon to get the book for free since you already donated the price of the book.  If you preorder from this blog you SHOULD NOT order the book from Amazon or anywhere else the book will be published or you will be charged twice.  Please come back and order the book from this blog when it is released so you do not get charged twice.

The first $2000 of preorders will also be helping to support this new site and paying for the cover design of the book as well.  If you are in the first $2000 of preorders you will be mentioned by name in the Acknowledgements section at the beginning of the book and I will also plug your blog if you have one in that section and on this site as well.

All preorders will receive an extra 3 chapters that I cut (about 30+ pages) for free once the book is released.  All $100+ premium packages that are bought will receive the extra 3 cut chapters even if you did not preorder.  All bulk orders of 10 or more books will also receive the 3 chapters that I cut even if you did not preorder as well.  Bulk orders of 10 or more eBooks or paperbacks will also receive a 50% total discount on any package and is a perfect option for high schools and universities.  If you are an educator and would like to have this book in your classroom please contact me directly because I would love to talk with you about how to use this book in your curriculum

Paperback orders will be fulfilled by Amazon affiliate CreateSpace once I upload the book and am ready to publish.

Planned release date is September 4th, 2013.

Announcing The New Value Investing Journey Blog. Another Big Announcement Tomorrow.

Welcome to the new Value Investing Journey Blog, the same as the old blog for the most part but in order to sell things, like my upcoming book, I had to switch over to a self hosted WordPress site instead of the free WordPress blog that I was using.

I have also added some advertising to help pay for the cost of this site and added a donate button which I will talk about in my post tomorrow.  I have made the advertising as obvious as possible so that you can avoid it if you do not want to click on it.  If you would like to buy some of the products I am advertising you can click on the links and everything you buy though the advertising links on this blog will help to fund this new site and would be very much appreciated.  I have also added an Amazon widget with my value investing and related book recommendations and if you decide to buy anything through that you will also be helping to fund this new site as well and again it will be very much appreciated.

I have a big announcement tomorrow as I will be announcing the title of the upcoming book, describe what I will talk about and teach in it, the date I have planned to release, and I will start taking “preorders” for it as well.

Please follow this new blog because the people who were following the old one do not seem to have transferred to this one.  Also make sure to follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Linkedin for all future updates about the book and all future postings from this blog as well.

Also would you please let me know if there is anything that is not working or anything that I could do to improve this new site.  I know next to nothing about running my own site, coding, or how to make this site run as efficiently as possible so if the site is running slowly or you think there is anything you think I could improve on please let me know.

Fantastic Idea From Valueprax: Mandarin Value Investing Journey. 从Valueprax国语价值投资之旅的奇妙的想法。

As you know I have been learning Mandarin for the past several months and yesterday Valueprax and I were talking on Twitter yesterday and after telling him that I am learning Mandarin he came up with a fantastic idea.  He said that I should translate my blog into Mandarin to get myself out there further.  Up to this point, I have not been able to find any Mandarin language value investing blogs so this is another way to get myself out there.  This will also help me learn Mandarin faster, get myself out there to potential value firms in Asia which may lead to potentially getting hired or at the very minimum hopefully gaining a new audience in Asia.

The new Mandarin language version of Value Investing Journey is below and I am currently undertaking the process of translating the entire blog into Mandarin so if you are curious what the blog would look like in Mandarin feel free to take a look.  If you know anyone who reads Mandarin and is interested in investing I would really appreciate if you could pass this link on.  Thank you and I hope you enjoy.

你知道我一直在学习普通话在过去的数个月,昨天Valueprax和我聊天昨天在Twitter上后,告诉他,我学习普通话,他想出了一个绝妙的想法。他说,我要我的博客翻译成普通话,没想到却在那里进一步。这点我一直没能找到任何的普通话价值投资博客,所以这是另一种方式来让自己有。这也将帮助我更快地学习普通话,让自己有潜在价值,公司在亚洲,这可能会导致潜在的被聘用,或最起码希望在亚洲获得了新的观众。

新的普通话语言版本,以下是价值投资之旅,我目前正在进行的过程中,整个博客翻译成普通话,所以如果你是好奇,到底是什么东西的博客看起来像普通话随时来看看。如果你知道谁读普通话及有兴趣投资,我会很感激,如果你可以通过这个链接上。谢谢你,我希望你能喜欢。
