Real Name: Troilus Bryan
Farmer and writer from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.
I currently make a living as a grain farmer. I have my CFP certificate, so I studied and worked long enough in the financial industry to learn all of the crappy 'investment' vehicles they shove idiots into and send them over the cliff... metaphorically speaking.
I am a bull on gold, oil, and grain. I invest money in precious metal and energy stocks. I also am looking for capital to expand my farming operations.
I have a satirical website called "Achieving Poverty - 47 Proven Methods of Overcoming Opportunity, Ability, and Abundance" which you likely should not visit because you'll not take my other
ideas seriously. www.achievingpoverty.com
My 'witty' financial newsletter can be found at contrarylemming.com
And my farming business will be here - freewestventures.com
Stocks - long
Free West Ventures
I am looking for the right joint venture partners to purchase more farmland here in Saskatchewan and grow crops (wheat, lentils, flax) which I believe are about to become more valuable. The growing of the crops will be my job. I am a forth generation farmer, and have been riding a John Deere since I was a
boy. The capital inputs will be yours. My mission is to attract $400,000 in capital from 1 to 20 investors. The investors will likely own a majority position in the company. I am in the process of incorporating Free West Ventures Inc. so speak up and let me know how many shares you want. Free West Ventures Inc. will purchase some land (financing it through the Farm Credit Corporation) and likely rent some more land for a total crop base of 4000 acres. The machinery will be leased. Fertilizer, chemical, and seed purchased. Seeding will commence in April of 2010 and by that time I expect commodity prices to be high enough to make you wish you acted now. I will run Free West Ventures for 5 to 10 years. At some point in that time frame the great commodity bull that Jim Rogers speaks about will be at it's peek, and everyone will be clamoring for fertile farmland. That's when we sell! Now, you can put your money with some big outfits like Black Earth Farming and they'll likely make you money. But if you invest with me, you can drop by the field anytime. Heck, I'll show you how to drive the damn harvester!
Contary Lemming Letter
Readers of the Contrary Lemming Letter have more sex, money, and happiness than average humans," an unscientific poll of my 7 subscribers indicates. My letter is brief, iconoclastic, and correct. But seldom all of those three things simultaneously. Here's a few of the financial topics I cover: > where to
buy gold and silver > how to hedge US dollar assets > investing in resource stocks > offshore real-estate investing > how mutual funds rip you off > why gov bonds are unsafe > Saskatchewan farmland JVs > and 'Escaping from America'
Currently, there are no book details for Contrary Lemming.
I am buying Silver Standard Resources because sooner or later silver will be worth $200 per ounce and
(TSX) has a lot of silver! :)
