I borrow magazines ie "Paydirt"I am just wondering how the more experienced go about finding companies particuarly in the small and medium cap sector. It would be greatly appreciated if you just provide some advice on how it should be done
Yep its a real journey of discovery heyI do like So_Cynical does.
a). follow the reports on ASX!
I start with the latest quarterly report.
I check that the company has sufficient funds to operate.
Nothing (excluding disaster) knocks the price of a small cap like a Capital Raising.
b). put them on a watchlist.
check the chart and watch the Share Price.
Comsec offers a free account and you can run a filter within that.I am just wondering how the more experienced go about finding companies particuarly in the small and medium cap sector. It would be greatly appreciated if you just provide some advice on how it should be done
What is HC and which magazines do you readI would not say I am experienced as I have only been doing this for a couple of years but would advise that you tailor your company research to your investment strategy. I use a stock screener on ft.com and only focus on companies that pass a couple of screens that I have developed for my investment strategy. This forum, HC and magazines to keep myself "in touch" with what is going on. Once you have identified some to research I find reading a few years of annual reports with an investment checklist very useful.
My main point is to tailor your research to your investment strategy. I go looking for mispriced small caps which I make big bets on.
Out of interest which forum has the most members?HC is Hot Copper a competing forum
