Why index funds perform better than most other actively managed funds
How diversification can sometimes be a bad idea
Why long term, investing in stocks is less risky than in bonds or bills
Why it makes sense to stay invested at all times
How simple process of stock picking is better than a complex one

“We are in bear market territory. The market may continue to go down, but it may also turn up tomorrow. No one knows for sure. I believe that it is prudent to stay the course rather than tempt fate by jumping in and out,” Shirman said.

Bryan Koffman, General Partner, PanTerra Investments says this book contains, “Valuable and actionable advice for both novice and experienced investors delivered in an enjoyable and easy to read manner.”

Leon Shirman earned a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from U.C. Berkeley in 1990. He has worked for a number of high tech companies, but turned his interest to investment management. He is now the Managing Partner of Etalon Investments, a fund that he started in 2002.

Real Estate Investors Take Cue from Warren Buffett at Upcoming Mobile Home and Mobile Home Park Investing Conference

Real Estate Investors Take Cue from Warren Buffett at Upcoming Mobile Home and Mobile Home Park Investing Conference











Mobile Home University


Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 20, 2008

Real estate investment professionals will want to reserve April 18-20, 2008 on their calendars. That weekend, many of the top names in mobile home investing will convene at the Sheraton Austin Hotel in downtown Austin, TX. Mobile Home Millions 6 will feature three full days of educational briefings, roundtable discussions and networking opportunities. In addition, attendees will be treated to workshops on self storage investing and on owner carryback financing. Real estate investors who would like to sign up for Mobile Home Millions 6 before the conference sells out can do so online at Mobile Home Millions 6.

The brainchild of MobileHomeUniversity.com, Mobile Home Millions was created to provide present and future real estate investors with unparalleled educational and networking opportunities in one of the most profitable real estate asset types: mobile homes and mobile home parks (also known as ‘manufactured home communities’). Currently in its sixth incarnation, this year’s Mobile Home Millions event will cover topics ranging from mobile home financing to manufactured home/land subdivisions to large mobile home park investing.

This year’s Mobile Home Millions roster of presenters will include a who’s who of mobile home and real estate investing gurus. Included on the bill are Steve Case, Corey Donaldson, Tony Colella, Scott St. Aubin, Dyches Boddiford, Pete Youngs, Jack Shea, Blake Donaldson and Steve Waite. The conference’s keynote speaker will be none other than the “father” of the used mobile home business, Lonnie Scruggs. Only super-investor Warren Buffett, himself, could make the agenda more enticing. Since 2003, the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway has invested billions in the manufactured housing industry. In just the last 5 years, Buffett has taken over the top spot in manufacturing, retailing, and lending of manufactured homes in the country.

One attendee of last year’s Mobile Home Millions conference, Greg Stayner, had this to say about the experience: “The seminar was the first one that I’ve been to that includes material that can be used on Monday morning. This is by far the best and most professional real estate conference that I’ve been to in 10 years.” James Maditz, another attendee, echoed his sentiments: “This is a must attend event for anyone considering investing in the mobile home park business or anyone in the business looking for help. The education that I received during the event was priceless…”.

If that feedback is any indication, seats to Mobile Home Millions 6 will sell out quickly, so early registration is encouraged. Registrants who sign up for the conference by March 31 will save over $ 195 on the price of admission, with free entry to the self storage and owner carryback financing workshops included.
