    This Online Advertising Pioneer Should Be On Your Radar

    This Online Advertising Pioneer Should Be On Your Radar

    As you know, I’m a value investor. This doesn’t mean I shun growth, and I always look for the perfect combination where value is coming alongside growth.

    Today, I’ll share my preliminary research on Criteo (NASDAQ: CRTO) which is doing business in the very interesting sector of online advertising. Hopefully, this will give you an idea for a stock to watch.



    Company Overview

    Criteo is a French digital performance marketing company that is behind many of the ads you see when you browse the internet. As online ads are becoming the key to target customers, it’s wise to take a look at one of the leading companies and industry pioneers. More →

    Sven Carlin New Book is Ready!  These 25 Tools Will Make You A Better Investor

    Sven Carlin New Book is Ready! These 25 Tools Will Make You A Better Investor

    Dear Investiv Daily Subscriber & Fellow Investor,

    After a year of hard work, I have finally finished my book about value investing and the process of analyzing a company. The title is Modern Value Investing, and the book is available both in a paperback version and as an e-book on Amazon.

    MODERN VALUE INVESTING: 25 Tools to Invest With a Margin of Safety in Today’s Financial Environment

    The book is dividend in three parts:

    • The mindset,
    • The skillset, and
    • Food for thought.

    The first section, titled ‘Mindset of a value investor,’ discusses the main psychological characteristics one must have to be a successful value investor. Risk is defined and explained in a way to help you understand the risks when making investment decisions.

    I then add to the common value investing concepts by discussing behavioral finance, the theory of reflexivity, and also discuss things to be careful of when investing like buyback shenanigans or Wall Street’s interests.

    The core of the book are the 25 tools to use when analyzing a company that will allow you to better analyze investment opportunities, identify a margin of safety, and have a great comparative view over your portfolio. The tools range from calculating intrinsic value, to determining a margin of safety, to assessing qualitative factors and general market risks for the company you are looking at.

    MODERN VALUE INVESTING: 25 Tools to Invest With a Margin of Safety in Today’s Financial Environment

    Part two follows with an application of the 25 tools on Daimler, a nice cyclical stock to demonstrate how the tools work.

    Part three of the book is food for thought as it goes beyond value investing and into more diversification, hedging, portfolio strategies, selling stocks, all-weather portfolios, rebalancing, long tail, and even gold.

    I hope you enjoy the book. If you like it, don’t forget to leave a nice review on Amazon as that would mean a lot for me.

    Sincerely,

    Sven Carlin

    If What The CEO Says Plays Out, This Silver Stock Could Explode

    If What The CEO Says Plays Out, This Silver Stock Could Explode

    • We’ll discuss the value of the silver First Majestic has in the ground.
    • We’ll also discuss the value of the company in relation to silver prices.
    • And we’ll discuss the corporate governance and the stories AG’s CEO likes to tell.



    Introduction

    I recently wrote about how silver looks good from a risk reward perspective. One of the most interesting silver stocks is First Majestic Silver (NYSE: AG).

    AG has been severely hit over the last two years, and it’s now time to look at whether it is a bargain or not, or if the risks are too high. More →

    Starbucks Makes A Great Latte, But Is It A Great Business?

    Starbucks Makes A Great Latte, But Is It A Great Business?

    • The key is to determine whether SBUX is a great business and if there is more room for growth.
    • SBUX might be the best low risk way to invest in China.
    • A recession is something to keep in mind, plus there are other risks.
    • A look at the price tells a lot about the stock here.



    Introduction

    I still remember very well how I was looking for stocks to buy and contemplating whether to buy McDonalds (NYSE: MCD) at $19 in September 2002. I was happy I didn’t buy as the stock dropped below $13 by December of the same year on the first announced loss, profit warnings, broken growth story, the CEO leaving, and restructuring costs.

    Ford Is Cheap, But Should You Buy It Now?

    Ford Is Cheap, But Should You Buy It Now?

    • Today, we’ll discuss what’s most important when analyzing a company like Ford: fundamentals, the economy, sales, intrinsic values, cars, and the stock price.
    • When investing in Ford, you have to think about what the stock price will be when the earnings turn negative. They always do.
    • I’ll show you 3 models that will explain the current price for Ford.



    Why Is Ford So Cheap?

    Many see Ford (NYSE: F) with a price to earnings ratio of just 5.6 and a dividend yield of 5.66% as an extreme bargain. That might be true at first glance, but those who think so haven’t seen economic cycles. More →

    Sunday Edition: Wearing A Polo? You’ll Like This Buying Opportunity

    Sunday Edition: Wearing A Polo? You’ll Like This Buying Opportunity

    When reading about the fraught retail sector, I usually find myself wondering about how iconic American brands are doing. Those longstanding brands that really embody and define American style.

    This week had me thinking about Ralph Lauren (NYSE: RL).

    For several years, it has seemed that Ralph Lauren has been in the same boat with Michael Kors and Coach, with their products being found mostly at outlet malls and on discount racks at departments stores. More →

    Sunday Edition: Tesla’s Price Has Fallen, But This Isn’t A Buying Opportunity Yet

    Sunday Edition: Tesla’s Price Has Fallen, But This Isn’t A Buying Opportunity Yet

    It’s finally here.

    Friday night, Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) handed over the keys to the first 30 Model 3s.

    This much-hyped foray into mass-market territory could prove to be a true game changer for the company when, and if, the Model 3 reaches profitability.

    However, if you thought the Model 3 finally hitting the streets would send Tesla’s stock on a tear after a few weeks in a downtrend, well, I have some bad news for you as the technical picture says otherwise. More →

    Sunday Edition: Don’t Fear The Reaper. It’s Not Coming For This Retailer.

    Sunday Edition: Don’t Fear The Reaper. It’s Not Coming For This Retailer.

    Looking at the retail sector over the last couple of years, it’s not difficult to imagine the grim reaper (or maybe just Amazon) coming for what remains of shopping mall staples and other brick-and-mortar retailers.

    The number of bankruptcies and closures is astounding. So far this year, more than 300 retailers have filed for bankruptcy, up 31% since this time last year. While most of those filings were from small Mom & Pop stores, there are some pretty big household names on the list too.

    Gymboree. Payless ShoeSource. Gordman’s. RadioShack. Teen clothing retailer Wet Seal. Women’s retailers The Limited and Bebe. More →

    Sunday Edition: What Asset Class Rises 300% In 2 Months?

    Sunday Edition: What Asset Class Rises 300% In 2 Months?

    To say the last few months have been wild for cryptocurrencies would be to put things mildly.

    On April 1, all cryptocurrencies combined had a market cap of $25 billion. But by the beginning of June, that number had risen to just over $100 billion. That’s a 300% increase in value in just over 60 days…

    By now, I imagine every investor has heard of bitcoin and it needs no introduction. The digital currency heavyweight itself was up roughly 160% in the same time frame, but the growth of other digital currencies contributed as well. Ethereum, for one, increased 439% in the same two months. More →

    Sunday Edition: This 3D Printer Manufacturer Just Gave Us Another Buying Opportunity

    Sunday Edition: This 3D Printer Manufacturer Just Gave Us Another Buying Opportunity

    Back in April, I wrote about 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD) and a technical pattern on its chart that indicated the stock was about to begin a new uptrend that could see the stock price rising 168% or more.

    The technical pattern discussed in the article—which is available here—was the contracting triangle, a continuation pattern that indicated that once the price broke out of the pattern, a new uptrend would begin for DDD.

    So where is DDD today? Well, by the first week of May, not even two weeks after writing about the stock, the price had broken out of the contracting triangle pattern and was beginning a new uptrend. Within days of the breakout, the price rose nearly 40%.

    But if you’re reading this and kicking yourself for not buying DDD back then, I have good news for you. More →
