As most of you already know, the interview with Peter Buffett will be uploaded tomorrow.
Here’s a local training programme that, incredibly, was praised and recommended by Mary Buffett! The exclusive scoop for you:
1) What is it about the programme that impressed Mary Buffett so much, and what did she say about it?
Mary Buffett with Cayden Chang, Founder of Mind Kinesis Value Investing Academy
Cayden: She was impressed by the fact that we knew so much about Warren Buffett’s investment philosophy and how strongly we subscribed to it even though we are in Singapore. In addition, she has been to China previously and she felt that Asians worked so hard for money but unfortunately, they do not know how to make money work for them. Our Value Investing Programme filled this gap.
2) Is the Value Investing course for everybody?
Cayden Chang with Mr Giang, aged 70, the oldest participant in the course thus far
Cayden: Yes, it is. Value Investing Programme is a training programme that can guide anyone, with absolutely no prior investing experience, to invest in undervalued companies with good underlying economics. This programme is the 1st Value Investing Programme in Singapore to be recommended by Mary Buffett, the Internationally Acclaimed Speaker and Best-selling Author of “Buffettology” (USA Today, Business Week and New York Times Bestseller), “The Tao of Warren Buffett” (Business Week and The Wall Street Journal Bestseller) , “Warren Buffett’s Management Secrets” and “Warren Buffett and the Interpretation of Financial Statements”. In Mary Buffett’s own words as she sang praises of our Value Investing Programme – “I am really impressed with your programme …Make your money work for you which is why your programme is very important”.
3) What can participants expect to learn from the course?
Cayden: Value Investing Programme provides a set of proven methodologies modeled after the richest stock investor, Warren Buffett, which helps any investor with limited or no knowledge of investment to know the following:
1) Where to find good businesses
2) When to buy the good businesses by identifying the company’s intrinsic value or target price
3) When to sell the good businesses
The intention of the programme is to help anyone to use the skills to generate 2 sources of passive income via capital appreciation and dividends.
In addition, our approach to Value Investing also has an additional icing on the cake – the selling of US Options, which further increases the return-on-investment for any individual. What differentiates us from any other Value Investing Training is that we leverage on the power of Options. Traditionally, speculators would buy and sell Options to gain returns. That’s pure speculation to us. So what we do is that we only sell Options with no intention of buying back. Such selling greatly reduces any risk because we are not holding on to any Options. The selling of these Options will then generate a regular and passive income for anyone. We call this methodology Value Investing Options Strategy™ (VIOs™).
What makes it even more exciting is that VIOs™ only requires an average of 15 minutes per month, with no monitoring of charts and no software required. We also hold free monthly gatherings for our graduates where we generate the cash “Live” during US Market trading hours.

4) How will investors benefit from Value Investing Programme amid current market volatility?
Cayden Chang with Zadkiel, aged 19, the youngest participant thus far
Cayden: We love volatility. In fact, the more the merrier. Now is the time when good companies are selling at very undervalued prices because of the bad news that is circulating in the market. Let me give you an example, on 8th Aug 2011, most of the share prices dropped because of the Standard & Poor’s downgrade of long-term sovereign credit rating on the United States of America to ‘AA+’ from ‘AAA’. This creates buying opportunities for us and our graduates. If we buy at a discount of, say, 20% from our target price, it means that we are increasing our profit margin by 20% excluding our expected return-on-investment. In addition, Options Premiums also increase with volatility thus translating into higher profits for our graduates when they sell Options. I love one of Warren Buffett’s sayings – “Mr Market is there to serve you and not to instruct you”.

Update(29/6/12) Because of reader comments here, I’ve contacted Mary Buffett directly about your concerns and this is her reply:
If any of you continue to have doubts about the programme, I think it’s best to meet Mary Buffett and ask her personally. I, for one, would do my best to attend the events and meet her. See ya!
(Update: 9 July 2012) Hi peeps, Mary Buffett DID say “I’m really impressed with your programme”. So do check out the video:
I know both the trainers (Cayden & Sean) personally and I have no reason to believe they are out to cheat anyone. Sean’s actually the kind of guy who would teach his friends about investing over a cup of coffee without asking them to pay to learn. I think it’s reasonable for him to ask for their comments/feedback/testimonials in return.
Andy, I was told that Sean has emailed you. Do reply to him so he can address your concerns.
Final note: I’ll only be accepting further comments from people who have ATTENDED the programme and have something to say about it. If you have not attended the programme, I’ll have to request that you kindly refrain from commenting here but email the trainers directly instead. Sean has provided his email address in the comment below – it’s email@example.com. Thanks!
