Choosing a good company

Choosing a good company isn’t as hard as you may think.  You do need to be willing to put in the work though. After narrowing down your choices, by eliminating all of the companies that are making empty promises or don’t have any real assets to offer, you begin to dig deep.  Call the CEO.  Talk to employees or clients.  Contact the Directors.  Learn the industry.  By doing this, you will have an informational edge that you can’t get with big companies trading on NASDAQ or the NYSE.  You become an expert by understanding the business inside and out.  And then you use that to your advantage by riding the wave of success.

MicroCap Explosions

This research-based newsletter is invaluable, but it’s also not regularly scheduled.  In order to 10x, 20x, 50x your investment, you can’t be jumping around from thing to thing.  Giving regularly scheduled updates is ridiculous in this business. He won’t write something, simply for the sake of writing something.  When Mariusz sees a good deal, he writes it up. In this current bear market, it’s easy to find great opportunities. However, when you find a good thing, you buy it and then you sit on it…sometimes for a long, long time. That’s actually the key to making microcap investing work.
