About Greg Canavan

Greg Canavan is a Contributing Editor at Markets & Money and Head of Research at Port Phillip Publishing.

He advocates a counter-intuitive investment philosophy based on the old adage that ‘ignorance is bliss’.

Greg says that investing in the ‘Information Age’ means you now have all the information you need. But is it really useful? Much of it is noise, and serves to confuse rather than inform investors.

And, through the process of confirmation bias, you tend to sift the information that you agree with. As a result, you reinforce your biases. This gives you the impression that you know what is going on. But really, you don’t know. No one does. The world is far too complex to understand.

When you accept this, your newfound ignorance becomes a formidable investment weapon. That’s because you’re not a slave to your emotions and biases.

Greg puts this philosophy into action as the Editor of Crisis & Opportunity. He sees opportunities in crises. To find the opportunities, he uses a process called the ‘Fusion Method’, which combines charting analysis with more conventional valuation analysis.

Charting is important because it contains no opinions or emotions. Combine that with traditional stock analysis, and you have a robust stock selection strategy.

With Greg’s help, you can implement a long-term wealth-building strategy into your financial planning, be better prepared for the financial challenges ahead, and stop making the same mistakes that most private investors do every time they buy a stock.

Why BHP Is Getting Out of US Shale Oil

The cycle has clearly turned for resources, and for BHP. Clear evidence of that lies in the amount of cash the company generated. Free cash flow (cash available for reinvestment back in the business, dividends, buybacks, etc.) grew to US$12.4 billion, up from just under US$4 billion last year.

What the Gold-Oil Ratio Is Telling You

On Monday, BlueScope Steel Ltd [ASX:BSL] fell 21%! In one day, nearly three months’ worth of gains were wiped out.  As the old saying goes, stocks rise by the escalator and go down via the elevator.

This Is Definitely the Top

It can’t go on… I’m talking about Australia’s national obsession: house prices. And another week brings another prediction about their inevitable demise.

Beware a Gold Price Correction

Today I’m going to take a look at the gold price. It’s dropped off the radar a bit lately, despite the yellow metal having a pretty good run so far in 2017.

Gold Is the Only Solution

The only way to stop this trend without causing a major crisis is to bring gold back into the system as an official measure of value.
