It has been a while since I have posted something for the last time. Nevertheless, I have been diligently working on my new strategy going forward.
I perfectly enjoyed the Christmas holidays and at the same time, I wrote an article for passionate investors. The aim was to present my evaluation method when deciding about an investment in the stock market. It took me approximately a week to put it all together. There is a huge benefit for me as well. Putting my thoughts on a paper gives me more clarity about my approach. So, that is good as this guide will be beneficial for me and hopefully for others as well.
The less good thing is that I really have extremely low traffic on Premium-Flow. The reason is that I do not devote much time to a marketing strategy. As a result, people cannot see the article as I struggle with the promotion & advertisement. However, this is OK because I got another idea for a new strategy.
“If the mountain will not come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain”
If readers do not come to my blog, I will come to the readers. Thus, I have started to contribute with my articles to Seeking Alpha. I find it a very good platform for passionate investors to introduce their ideas to the wide public. Interested readers can check news about companies of their interest and exchange views with fellow investors. All the published articles go through an editor’s scrutiny to make sure that there is a certain level of quality.
Swift start with the new strategy – overview of my articles on Seeking Alpha
During this month, I have written three articles and hope to start soon on the fourth one.
My first contribution was about the company: Waste Management Inc. I chose it as I am quite familiar with this industry sector and hoped to provide some additional value. To sum it up, it is an interesting company, but currently rather expensive. This is the case for the majority of stocks. Feel free to check the article below:
Therefore, I wanted to take a different approach than the mainstream. My second and third article were about mining companies with a much smaller market capitalization. These were Eldorado Gold and Tahoe resources as both seem rather undervalued. At the same time, if there would be any market correction, these companies might profit from that as explained in the articles:
- Is Eldorado Gold Safer Investment Than A Blue Chip?
- Tahoe Resources: High Potential With Limited Downside Risk
Option selling & investing are the key topics for Premium-Flow
What I wanted to say is that despite the new strategy, I have still the same focus and I keep doing what I like. Although, I write a lot about investing in Seeking Alpha, my blog – Premium-Flow – puts a lot of focus on option selling as well. I continue to be active in both fields. Options are financial derivatives and can be used by traders or investors for different purposes. Option selling can actually complement investing. Investors can achieve lower entry price or hedge their positions. If you never heard about options, you might check this link or drop me a line.
As I have not been uploading anything here for quite a long time, I wanted to provide you an update on what I do in my free time. I will be happy to hear what you do too. So, let me know in the comments below.
