It's September and there is some confidence showing

After nearly 18months of bad share trading, ( a BEAR market) confidence seems to be returning and the market is rising again. (the BEAR is turning into a BULL and we hope there is a stampede by the herd which will push prices up.)This confidence is because America seems to be improving and although their unemployment rate is still high, people are buying houses again. (but can they afford the sure- to- rise interest rates?) Right now there are still many cheap shares under ten cents.

I recovered all the losses last month, and we made over 5000.00 profit on the shares I recommended. they were ABY.AX (bought at 11 cents and sold at 1.oo)
and MCW.AX bought at 17 cents and sold at 63 cents.
many of the under ten cents shares are rising slowly. so the message is:
if you invest $500.00 and a 1 cent share doubles, then you double your money and make another $500.00 plus get your investment back.
But of course you have to buy the right shares.. so what "sector" is likely to rise? energy, mining, food , banks, etc?? and what can we afford to buy with 500.00? That is the question.

Ask yourself, what has sold well before and dropped in the recession.? what was the previous high and low for the year (or check for two years). what has risen recently? so who knows what? why are people buying this particular stock?
go to the , check in the market statistics for volume each day. (after 4.30pm) see what rose and write down the companies that were cheap. then go to company research and look at their graph. Then go to and type into the finance section the code plus .ax, example and see the information quoted. you could also goto google to see how much money the company has.. it really needs to have a few million in the bank. say 50 mill. that is called capitalisation. too low and they might go broke, and you will lose all your money..
to learn more you can visit the pages at for heaps of free learning.
Making money on the share market is a JOB. you earn your money because you do research.
you do take risks, but you spread your risk by not putting all your eggs in one basket.

best of luck .Mega

Hows the shares going?

Over the last 12 months, "Your" stocks and our portfolio had a hammering in the biggest global meltdown in 75 years.
The whole portfolio fell as much as 89% !!!OUCH!! Gosh-Darn- Blankety-Heck!
It has recovered to only about a overall loss of 38%. BUT there have been some big gains which offset some big losses, and total wipeouts like ABC Learning.(they went bankrupt) Tax wise,these are called unrealised profits/losses and can be claimed and can reduce tax paid in your job (when you get one) so learn about tax.

Lesson 1. learn to read, write and add up. then learn about tax law.
lesson 2. Learn about managment and managing teams and people. learn to give a win-win result. Learn to be a good coach. Then when you have a business you will be able to get the best out of your team.

The Australian market is rising and it seems that the recovery is on its way, however the American unemployment figures (or Australias) may not be as good as they seem. Therefore the result may not be as rosy as suggested.
They may be counting part timers and casuals as "real jobs".
There may be more pain to come. BUT if you/we buy wisely now, you should make money in the longer term.

Another thing to consider is inflation. as soon as the real estate starts rising, inflation will push up prices and interest rates.. what is cheap today may be expensive tomorrow, especially money owed and interest payments.

I bought ABY for 12 cents in April and now they are about 79 cents. Their price 12 months ago was 2.30.
I also purchased MCW for 17 cents and they are now around 56 cents. NWT is rising and at 7 cents should give a good profit in the next 12 months. There are heaps of others. it's just a matter of being able to buy and hold, without using a margin loan.
But it might be a rough and scary ride , so don't invest all your eggs in one basket and only buy minimal amounts.And Dont forget htere are plenty of Crooks in the share market. Takeovers, consolidations, and even compulsory buying back of your shares.

and Remember..I could be wrong. so do your own homework. make your own decisions. as the great guru, WarrenBuffet says, "eat your own cooking"

The best way to learn about the sharemarket is to pretend to have a portfolio. you can make a watch list in yahoo or on the and watch your shares rise /fall . there are even educational sections to teach you. I wish I'd learnt all this when I was young, but I had no idea the sharemarket even existed. That's why I write this blog.

Rich kids feel poor

I thought with the last year (2008) sharemarket crash, that the grandkids would be sworn off their shares.. I mentioned casually, "well, I would've given you all more shares for your birthday or Christmas, but I guessed that you wouldnt be interested."

Three teenagers put up their hands. "Yes please we're interested".
Lloyd asked.. "but weren't they all worthless?"
His mother interjected, "yes, they fell but we havent sold and now they are rising.. the sharemarket is in recovery."

So capitalism is still alive and well, and hope still sparkes!

That's good, because it means they realise that you have to continue to look to the future, and what happened yesterday, does not always predict what might happen tomorrow.
