For many of us, we grew up watching Disney cartoons - Mickey Mouse, Lion King, Snow White and the list goes on. Walt Disney produced its first cartoon in 1923, titled Alice’s Wonderland, and since then, the company grew from a humble cartoon studio into one of the largest media conglomerates in the world, with a market capitalisation of US$157B.

If you have children of school age, you’re probably familiar with the products developed and marketed by 3P Learning: Mathletics, Spellodrome, Reading Eggs and their latest product, IntoScience.
3P’s products are used by over 5.3 million students in over 17,000 schools on every continent around the world – 110 counties in total. Very few Aussie companies can boast such a wide reach around the globe.
Whilst 3PL’s share price hasn’t done much since listing on the ASX in July 2014, if the company continues its recent track record of rising earnings, profits and cash flows, then the future could look very different.

Volatility is what makes up the stockmarket. As an investor, you shouldn’t be afraid of volatility but rather harness it to buy into top stocks at great prices. Here are Skaffold’s five tips to help your portfolio flourish through volatile markets.
1. Don’t be afraid to sell
2. Don’t chase dividends blindly
3. Avoid bad stocks in the first place
4. Holding cash is better than taking a loss
5. Build a watch list of top stocks and jump in when there is a correction

With reporting season done and dusted – except for tiny speculative mining companies that don’t make money anyway – now is a prime time to go on the hunt for top stocks to buy.
If you cleaned out your portfolio before reporting season, you’ll have a wad of spare cash sitting in the bank begging to be invested. Even if you don’t have cash to invest right now, learning how to find great stocks to buy is a good thing to practice. You may even want to set up a pretend portfolio to track how you’d have gone, had you actually invested your money.
Paper trading is a great way to get started and feel your way around the sharemarket, without committing your hard-earned cash. Whether they’re listed on the sharemarket or privately owned, the very best companies have 10 features in common. Once you know how to spot top stocks, and avoid their lesser quality counterparts, sharemarket investing will be a breeze.

While there are times when the ASX offers an impressive list of high-performing growth stocks, limiting yourself during times when local growth is slowing can detract from the long-term performance of your portfolio. So if you prefer to stick with the big end of town and don’t want to limit yourself to bank and mining stocks, then it’s time to think global.
This month we jumped into Skaffold Global – there are around 2000 stocks to choose from – and uncovered a list of the largest stocks in the same sectors as our top 10: banks, mining, telecommunications, retail and biotechnology.
In May 2014 we did the same comparison: Australia’s top 10 stocks versus the world. Had you invested $100,000 equally across the nine global stocks identified, you’d be sitting on a capital gain of $10,500 and received $2,700 in dividends. That’s a return of 13 per cent. Add the benefits of currency movements and your profit, including dividends, rises to $30,000, or a 30 per cent gain on your initial investment. Over the same period the S&P/All Ordinaries Accumulation Index returned 7.8 per cent.

A big clean out – of your garage, wardrobe, garden shed – can be liberating. You’ll stumble across stuff you forgot you had (and realise you can’t live without it) and uncover a mountain of junk that should have been put out for the council clean-up five years ago. Routinely cleaning out your portfolio is no different from a spring clean of your home. You need to do it regularly and be ruthless.
If you put your companies through the wringer, deciding whether to buy, sell or hold should be simple.

In early January Alan shared his A1 investment plan with the Skaffold community. Alan’s disciplined and well thought-out rules were commended by his fellow members
Coming from an engineering background, Alan is probably a little more disciplined than the average investor. Nether less, Alan’s story is a timely reminder that to be a successful investor, one must have a strict set of investment rules. You must also have the emotional capacity to follow them.

When you consider Australia’s ageing population and how your portfolio can reap the benefits of baby boomers’ ballooning wealth, sometimes it pays to think outside the box. Baby boomers don’t need just housing and healthcare. Travel, wealth management, insurance and essential services are also high on their list of needs and wants.
Guided by Skaffold’s core principles of investing (solid balance sheet with minimal debt, strong profitability as measured by return on equity, rising earnings and strong cash flow) we logged into the online stock research tool to hunt for off-the-radar opportunities that appear set to benefit from a growing population of cashed-up retirees.
As you’ll discover, these stocks don’t rely solely on baby boomers for their success. Having diversity in their revenue streams, which is supported in part by a growing segment of the population, only helps strengthen their ability to expand their market share and produce rising earnings and profits year after year.

In February 2012 Skaffold graced the cover of Money magazine with our Top 5 and Top 50 stocks for 2012. Money readers loved it, and we have been privileged enough to share our Top 5 share tips each year since.
In 2012 we hypothetically invested $50,000 across the Top 5 stocks. In early 2013 we sold the 2012 stocks and reinvested the gains, including the $2,000-odd we received in dividends, into the 2013 stocks. We did the same thing in early 2014.
Had you followed this process, which by the way is methodical and not influenced by human opinion or bias, you’d be sitting on a portfolio worth just under $84,000.
Since inception the process has returned 75 per cent, or 77 per cent if you include franking. Annually, that’s a return of 22 per cent. Mr Warren Buffett would be proud.
