Course Description

Course updated as of 4 January 2016: Uploaded the "VIM Investment Checklist" to help you in your stock selection and decision making process.

JOIN MILLIONS OF PEOPLE GLOBALLY WHO ARE ALREADY INVESTING IN THE STOCK MARKET.

In this course, you will learn how to become a profitable value investor by screening, analyzing, and identifying high performing and undervalued stocks.

Value Investing is the only proven stock investing method since the 1920s which focuses on looking at stocks as a business rather than a moving stock price. It is also the only investing methodology where you are required to know how much the business is worth- its Intrinsic Value- before you invest, and include a Margin of Safety to take care of any possible errors in calculation. It is a highly conservative method. Value stocks tend to outperform growth stocks in global markets.

Is beating the market just a dream? How is it possible for an ordinary person- more importantly for you, to make this a reality?

The secret to wealth is simple: You need a formula. A formula makes investing easy to understand.

Value investing is actually quite simple- if you know how to take the right steps- but let's be honest here; Google and books don't do a good job in explaining things, do they?

I will take you by the hand and show you EVERYTHING on how it can be done. The concept is simple, the explanation is simple, but most important of all, the execution is simple enough for you to do on your own. This formula does only 1 thing. It helps you buy above-average companies, but only when they are available at undervalued prices.

What's in it for you:

  • QUICK and POWERFUL 5-step formula
  • Find above-average stocks in 5 minutes
  • Buy them at undervalued prices
  • Reduce your risk in investing by 30%
  • Free online tools professional investors can't use

  • All the ongoing updates to this course are FREE, forever
  • 30-day money back guarantee (that's my commitment to your success. You have nothing to lose!)

Instructor Biography

Value Investing Monster, Stocks and Value investing made simple

Value Investing Monster (VIM) was founded with the purpose of bridging the information gap between learning value investing and actually putting it to use.

While there are many available information on the concepts and principles of value investing; there is a lack of resources that actually guides investors on actionable steps in screening and identifying value stocks. The VIM team aims to help you achieve just that.
