This course is meant to teach people about “value investing” - Warren Buffett’s style of investing. However, this is the very first course I completed when I was looking to learn the basics and it was helpful, even though I didn’t aspire to become a value investor.

You’ll learn everything from “what is a stock”, “what is a bond” to how to complete valuations on individual stocks using things like a DCF calculator, how to do fundamental analysis, how to use a stock screener and many other important concepts.

I find that investors tend to “just do it” and often skip the basics. That’s not a great trait for self-learners. In school you’re forced to learn the basics, and you get a step-by-step plan for doing that, but they often don’t teach you anything actionable. It’s natural to want to jump directly to the actionable part, if you don’t like how the school system works, but I don’t think that’s a good idea with investing. I think one should understand the basics first. Even if you already know some things about investing, it’s likely you’ll learn something new from this.

This is a free 11-parts course made by Andrew Jackson and published by Sprott EDU.

 

The course is meant to help non-technical and non-geologist people make sense of the projects of natural resource exploration and development companies.

It should help you understand ore deposits which, if understood well, could help you improve your returns in natural resource investing. I would suggest investing the time to thoroughly understand what is being taught in this course. I would also suggest taking notes and watching a maximum of 1 episode per day, so that you can forward your research of what was taught during that lesson.

There is a lot of money to be made in natural resources when you know what you’re doing. This course might teach you that. It will teach you how deposits are formed in geology, how they’re explored, how they’re mined and when it makes sense to mine them, through a few actionable exercises on which you can follow along.

This is essential and if I had a brokerage, I wouldn’t allow people to invest in natural resources before they’ve gone through this course and taken a test to prove they’ve understood it. I think that might help with the volatility in small cap natural resource companies.

The main benefit of this course is that it will help you build your own conviction, and it will make you independent from an online guru. That way when your holdings drop in price, but you understand the type of deposit they’re sitting on, you won’t lose a minute of sleep over them.

 

If you have limited time or are very new to natural resource & commodity investing, this is the first course you want to take.

This is a playlist of videos from different creators that I’ve put together, and will keep on adding to, as I find it very important to understand what the company is communicating to you, both directly and indirectly.

It starts with 2 interviews that I did with dr. Quinton Hennigh, who’s been an exploration geologist for many more years than I have been on this planet.

In the first one we covered the theory of understanding drill results, and on the second one we covered a few examples of exploration stories that went wrong and what you should’ve known to predict them going wrong, even before they’d put out any feasibility studies.

Those 2 interviews are very boring, and even more so important. If you only have a few hours to invest, I suggest investing them in those interviews.

Further on, there are some other videos in here that go into the technical side of mining & exploration.

I’ll be adding videos to this playlist over time, you can subscribe for a free email notification here.
