“As much studying as i’ve done over the decades I never actually knew how to analyse companies. But I can now say that because of you I have a very good understanding of how to sort the very good from the mediocre” – Peter McGee
WHAT THIS COURSE IS FOR
Spreadbetting broker IG.com have confirmed that over the last 5 years over 78% of their clients have lost money. Let that sink in for a moment. 5 years of toiling on the markets, trying to make your capital work for you, only to have finished down overall?
Fact is, our very human nature prevents us from being a success. Holding onto losing trades too long or cutting winners too early is a result of our human psychology. We’re simply not built to perform well. This is why it is so incredibly hard to succeed out there.
Yet if you had bought and held the FTSE 100 over the last 20 years you’d have made an average 8.8% annual return. Couple that with a dividend re-investment policy at an assumed 3% annual yield and a further £250/month investment and over that time you could have turned £10,000 into £386,183.
That’s not a pie in the sky figure. That’s mathematical fact. At 8.8% compounded each year you can achieve a hell of a lot.
Am I suggesting we all go out and buy and hold the FTSE 100? No.
Whilst this might be a very good strategy for your nan or someone who simply doesn’t want to manage their own portfolio, it’s the absolute minimum you should be making.
It’s the minimum because you really don’t have to do anything for it. You just….buy and hold the FTSE. And when doing this can bring you 8.8% annual average return on your capital it shows just how insane it is to be LOSING MONEY stuck behind the screen all day.
However, the FTSE 100 is made up of a lot of poor companies unfortunately and only a very small handful of great ones. Being able to pick between the good and the bad can make a significant difference to the results.
In 2019 for instance the FTSE 100 rose 9% in value. However, my list of 31 UK stocks selected from the FTSE 100, 250, Small Cap, Fledgling and AIM index made a whopping 38% return.
And by May 2020, amid the coronavirus outbreak the FTSE fell as low as -22.4% when the 31 stocks i’ve picked only sat at just -7.7%.386
Over the last 7 years my 31 stock watchlist has outperformed the FTSE 100 every year because of my ability to ‘cherry pick’ the right companies. Over that period we have achieved a 103% return including 2020’s results. That’s a 14.7% yearly annual average return despite the coronavirus impact.
That would turn a £10,000 account into £959,460 over 20 years assuming the same 3% annual dividend yield re-invested with an additional £250 further investment every month.
WHAT IS COVERED?
Over the last year I started a Youtube series called ‘The FTSE Show’. A show dedicated to ripping apart the various financial statements of a company and looking to see whether that company would make a good or poor long term investment choice.
No emotion or brand affinity. Just the factual numbers. Do they look like a growing business? Are they reinvesting for continued growth? Is the underlying recurring business doing well or is it covered up by ‘one-off’ sales of company assets? What’s really going on?
Since doing that show the channel has seen 5000+ subscribers and over 100,000 views in 2020 alone. It grows every day.
The question i’ve been getting a hell of a lot is “How can I learn how to analyse companies like you do?”
Hence the creation of my Level 1 – Long Term Investing for Beginners course.
The course contains 33 online videos over 4 modules, covering how to prepare yourself mentally for this style of investing (especially if you are coming from a trading or spreadbetting background) as well as how to set accurate and realistic expectations for what you are likely to achieve and how long it will take you to achieve it. We also cover a fully comprehensive tutorial on how to analyse any companies financial statements. These are the income statements, balance sheets and cash flow statements. These are the 3 documents included in every companies annual report each year. This is broken down in piece by piece, step-by-step videos that give you the opportunity to analyse your own company of choice along with the videos. So that by the end of the course you’ll have already completed your first analysis of a company. Finally in module 4 we cover how to take what you’ve learned and get started. This includes opening a brokerage account, depositing funds, working out fees/costs if any and then buying shares in your first companies.
By the end of the course you’ll know how to analyse any company and be able to interpret the results to ascertain whether they are a company you would like to invest in or not.
In addition we also cover videos on how to tell whether a share price is too high relative to the underlying intrinsic value of a business. We don’t want to be buying shares at astronomical prices, no matter how great the underlying business is doing.

What Others are Saying About the Course
I am coming to the end of your 4 week course and I can honestly say it was well worth the money. The knowledge I have gained is invaluable. After years and years of watching and following the markets your course has finally given me the confidence to understand what makes a good company but also why so many companies gain no value year after year, sometimes decade over decade. I now have the confidence to put my money where my mouth is and start buying shares. I would recommend you and your course to anyone who asks.
Hi bud, thought i’d drop you a line to say this course is outstanding! I’m learning a ton! And yes, you may use that as a testimonial!
Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say how much I am enjoying the investing course. You are covering everything and making it very easy to understand. I listen to a lot of audio books on the subject of investing and sometimes find it difficult to take what I need from them. This is why I continue to come to you for knowledge. You make the learning process much more enjoyable. Great job!
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you personally for rolling out this course at such a reasonable cost. The ROI is exponential in my view. I have enjoyed the whole course immensely! Although I already knew some aspects that had been taught in your other courses it was always useful to hear it again, cementing and reiterating knowledge learnt. The most valued part of the course for me is being taught how to choose the right valued stocks from fantastic companies. I am now empowered to make solid decisions based on what has been delivered. I won’t be as rich as Warren Buffet…but that is not the goal for me. It’s knowing that I’m able to employ similar methods for financial freedom…for me and my family while enjoying the process. In a world full of scam artists and unscrupulous people, you have definitely earned ‘The CLEAN Trader’ brand. Thank you!

Just wanted to say thank you for what you are doing. I’ve read loads of books on trading and investing in stocks and watched hours of training videos. Your work is by far the best i’ve come across.
Chris, just wanted to say thank you for this course. I find it is very good for me. It was just what I was looking for! You are the most honest person I have ever seen!
You are an inspiration Chris! I am in my late 40’s and my husband in his late 50’s. Searching for a way through investing. We tried day trading for a while and just couldn’t make it work. Left with just pennies in the account and zero confidence left. We ate up your course, now watching it again and also working through all your other resources. Thank you for making the information affordable for us once again.
