PLAYING THE ODDS
The difference between gambling and investing.
Upland Resources - 30% CoS
United Oil & Gas - 58% CoS
So there’s more probability of you winning if your chance of success is above 50%
In roulette the house has advantage of 5.26% on the American wheel, roulette is among the worst bets in a casino.
RISK / REWARD
Maximum exposure to one stock is 10%, this is the maximum depending on how risky the investment is.
If it’s a pre-revenue micro cap stock which is losing money and needs funding, you should bring that exposure down to maybe 1% or 2%.
If the company generates free cash flow, pays a dividend, has a reasonable price earning ratio and is not valued much above it net asset value then you could go for maximum exposure.
One thing you should always do is work out what % return you are expecting on your investment as this will dictate what type of exposure you’re looking for.
If you return is below 10 - 15% over a 12 month period I’d suggest it’s quite a safe investment. If the return you’re looking for is over 50% I’d suggest the investment you’re looking at is probably high risk.
Always start small. That way you can only lose small. There’s always opportunities to scale in on confirmation.
Create a watchlist. The size of that watchlist is up to you but the more co’s you have the more time research will take up.
You need to cut you options down.
What’s your risk appetite?
If you up for taking big risks in the hope to gain some big rewards, then adjust your watchlist to only follow small cap or high growth stocks.
If you have enough time to research one company per week, that's 52 companies a week you've researched.
