So I’ve been working on the outline of a value investing ebook that I would like to give away for free.
I have written an ebook once before and I have forgotten how long things take.
I’m an obsessive. Things need to look right. Text needs to be in the correct font. Images need to be relevant and eye catching.
But then I thought: what about the content?
So really, this is an opportunity to get in touch and tell me what topics YOU WOULD LIKE COVERED IN AN EBOOK ABOUT VALUE INVESTING US AND UK STOCK MARKETS.

The last time I wrote an ebook about the stock market it was so well received that someone offered me the rights to it and so I sold it. That was in 2011.
Now I want to write an ebook about the stock market with the same level of enthusiasm but this time I plan to make it even more useful.
I’m about one quarter of the way through so there is a little bit of time left yet (whisper: I plan on releasing the ebook at Easter time) to get in touch with WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT STOCK MARKET INVESTING.
The Stock Market
In other news, BG Group (BG.L) was a UK large cap that I’d mentioned on Facebook. It was trading near its 52 week low at the beginning of January.
It’s a little higher than that right now.

Now I know that UK stocks are in the midst of a bull market and that value investing has a long term outlook but still, its a GREAT example of how to exploit the price of shares using a value investing approach.
This means that these large companies are usually in some sort of trouble for their prices to be so low which may put you off from buying them.
Check this out from Seth Klarman about his firms approach to value investing:
We are highly opportunistic, and I will be buying what other people are selling, what is out of favour, what is loathed and despised, where there is financial distress, litigation – basically, where there is trouble. That is how we direct our search.
If it’s good enough for Klarman, its good enough for you too.
