I hate the term “stock due diligence” because it implies that we are actually doing research. But the reality is that we aren’t actually doing stock due diligence. We just have a general idea of what we are buying and what we are wanting. We do some research and decide what we want to do with this information.
When we buy a stock, we can’t really control what we’re buying. We can only control the company that we’re buying it from. If we want to buy a company based in China, we can’t just go there and buy the company in China. We need to research what kind of company it is, and then we need to research what the company will do with our money, and then we need to research what the company is trying to do with our money.
The other thing to consider, I’m starting a new thread in which I share my thoughts on why we need a company that is just waiting to be created.
The stock market is one of the best ways to figure out what a company is likely to do with your money. The best way to do this is to check out the company’s public stock filings. Every company has a public filing where you can see all of its basic information about its business, the amount of money in its capitalization, and the number of shares that are outstanding. The information is usually pretty simple, and you can often find it online.
A company that is ready to make the stock market work for you is one that has an unassailable track record of being able to deliver on its promises and avoid making mistakes. We at Stockpile pride ourselves on being one of the best companies that is not only willing to work with you but also to look at your ideas and give you great advice.
There’s so much information available in the game industry, and it is in abundance, so there isn’t many people who are not willing to look at the information and get excited. It’s not a one-man show, and you do not want to see it.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see a game that is on its third generation of development since the first one, although we don’t think it would be as far along as the first one. And even if you do go that route, one thing you should understand is that it is not as simple as just working on a game. A huge amount of time and energy is spent on figuring things out, not just on the game itself.
I think that if you’re ever asked to do a due diligence on a game, you should at least have at least a basic understanding of the game’s development history. That way you will be able to understand the game and what’s changing and what’s staying the same.
But if you’re a good game developer, and you think you’re going to be a great one, then that’s a good decision. But if you don’t have a basic understanding of game development history, and you think your game is going to be great, then that’s a bad one.
It is a common mistake people make when due diligence is asked of them as it seems to be a very unprofessional and uninteresting thing to do. But its good to at least understand the history of the game development.
