    Thanks for the recommendation.

    I purchased the audible book and listened to it this week. I thoroughly enjoyed it making notes as I listened at work. I also bought his 'Little book on common sense investing' which I'll listen to over the weekend.

    I'm off to see Peter Thornhill next month and although I felt I knew the general basics of index funds etc, I'm trying to really enhance my knowledge base before I go, in preparation of PT (assumed) negative comments towards them.

    Need to start an Anti resources thread although I fear would get very long very quickly...

    I would put this one near the top.. 40 minutes of my life I'll never get back having said that 100% my fault for listening..

    Padley is a grade A pillock. I wonder if he even believes this stuff, or it’s just something he has to do to pay the school fees?

    That what make the market, different views, strategy and time frame
    find one that works for you and stick with it because there will be endless articles and people on different topics and view

    and the bright side of it is, we need people to churn, time the market, cut loss, stop loss, margin call it creates liquidity and opportunities.

    See what other people do and how you can take advantage of it and make money is how I look at the market

    I was going to post this, hit delete before I thought that some might be interested and it was lost. Wasn't considering putting in the learning resources...

    Yes they are very cool when they come from growing revenue, but not when they come from running companies down, as the author Shane Olilver has done with AMP, he has no credibility. AMP was one of my worst companies bought for $5 dollars about 30 years aqo I think it is worth about $2.50 now ! Even the graph he shows are **** poor returns, taking 40 years to get $10 from $1 invested. In 1975 at 15, I bought 5 pivot shares became ( IPL) for 50c, $2.50, 18 months ago I sold they had grown to 1,333 shares @ 3,80, $ 5k. $1 became $2000 plus for the last decade I was getting about $250 p/a in dividends or 100 x100%., 10,000% yeild /pa. THATS COOL !

    Also bought about 8000 ABB Grain shares for 5c in the late 80's and about 2000 for 25c. about $500 worth. It was taken over by Canadian giant Viterra I think it was @ 17.00. 15 years later. Got similar results with Vic Grain which became GrainCorp, bought for 500 @ 5c 100 @ 25c, sold 30% for $17, the rest for $12, when greedy directors it stopped reinvesting in the company and got big bonuses for short term yields, but became inefficient and uncompetitive, ended up and selling some sites to competitors who invested, and made twice the profits of GrainCorp.

    Not specifically a share investment resource and US focused but some may find this fun - or depressing depending on the result but try not to let it get you down as there is always tomorrow (hopefully.)

    Automatically skipped Marcus as he is normally a self serving dribbler but was actually decent.

    I do know @Nodrog is a big fan of his active trading strategies.

    WHAT!!! Trading, wash your mouth out with soap.

    Read the article this morning. Nothing new to those of us living off income. But I do agree that it was different from his usual views.
