Stephan Bogner is mining analyst at Rockstone Research, he has independently analyzed capital markets and resource stocks for more than 11 years. He is also CEO at Elementum International AG of Switzerland trading precious metals and storing them in a high-security vaulting facility within the St. Gotthard Mountain Massif in Central Switzerland which is a duty-free zone. Bogner earned his degree in economics in 2004 at the International School of Management in Dortmund, Germany. He spent five years in Dubai brokering and reselling physical commodities and now resides in Zurich, Switzerland. Diplom-Kaufmann Stephan Bogner began his academic studies in economics at the International School of Management in Dortmund (Germany) and was one of many who was hooked by the thrilling lectures of Professor Bocker on economic and monetary systems. Yet he was (and still is) the only student of the university that wrote a diploma thesis on precious metals as a protection against inflation (“Gold in a macroeconomic context with special consideration of the price formation process”) that was completed in 2002 under the supervision of Professor Bocker. Mr Bogner specialised in Finance & Asset Management, Production & Logistics and International Law & Entrepreneurship. He also studied at the European Business School in London (UK) and the University of Queensland in Brisbane (Australia). In 2003, he started working closely with Ferdinand Lips, among others to publish and market his latest bestseller (“Gold Wars – The Battle Against Sound Money As Seen From A Swiss Perspective“) in the German-speaking countries. He revised and translated the English version into German (“Die Gold Verschwörung”). In 2004, he went to work at the biggest gold market in the world (Dubai), where he started up two companies that were specialised in re-selling and brokering physical commodities and consulting with publicly-listed mining companies. Moreover, he was co-founder and, until late 2006, partner of the first German silver stockletter and online information platform (Silberinfo.com) besides dealing with coins and bars. Mr Bogner is an active analyst for several research firms, institutional and private investors and family offices, mainly for the analysis and valuation of capital markets and publicly-listed companies with a focus on geology, exploration, development and production of resource deposits. Since years, he lives in Zurich (Switzerland) and regularly publishes articles in German and English about economic contexts, currencies, commodities and companies active in exploration and mining of natural resources worldwide. www.rockstone-research.com www.elementum-international.ch www.elementum-deutschland.de/en/team.html
I have been investing in stocks for nine years now, most of the time in my native Bulgaria. Over the past few years I focused on the REIT sector and in 2016 I started investing in precious metals companies. I had decent returns over the past years, always looking for undervalued companies and taking a medium term view of 1.5-2 years. No leverage, no short positions. I have a bachelor's degree in Finance and a Master's degree in International Business and I am a big fan of Michael Burry, Koos Jansen and Keith Neumeyer among other.
I started and led a consumer products oriented consulting firm for 20 years. We consulted with many of the premier companies including KO, JNJ, SJM, CL, BMY, G, MMM, GIS, MO, etc. After selling the business I wrote a book on investing in Great Companies and started an investment firm that managed three mutual funds with AUM of $1.4 billion using the principles outlined in the book that I wrote. The largest fund outperformed the S&P 500 during the five years that I managed the fund.
After selling the funds I have been involved in various ventures including investment management, a country music channel, and purchasing consumer debt.
I am an independent investor who also teaches value investing at www.csinvesting.org. My interests include Austrian economics, gold, specialty insurance, business services, and resources. My goals are to value and explain investments as a business person.
Young, novice investor, looking for ideas and knowledge. Very small portfolio, however I am young so I have many years to develop a wealth of knowledge and, well, wealth. As I can see from the comments here, one will never stop learning, and never stop improving your ideas and strategies.
