Industry experiment: Capital Component blueprint research

I decided to test an idea of Parasoja’s since I wasn’t planning to login much over the Christmas break, what with holidays and work taking up a lot of time.

01 December 2012: bought 2860M of capital and/or capital component blueprints

01 Feb 2013: sold them for 3840M

Profit: 980M (40M/week/research slot)

Not bad for the low amount of effort required. A bit capital-intensive though.

    Good Going on Profits, quite nice.

    Though I’m waiting to hear soon that you’ve setup shop and building Capitals Like a Boss!

    Could you answer a few questions for me about your dealings with this?

      Sure. What would you like to know?

        I recently decided to try this and bought some BPOs from NPCs (One I bought from a player for under NPC price!) and when I’m looking at contracts I just don’t see any way I can get near the profit you got in a month. Unless you have all your research skills maxed out and the highest grade implants and you got to a higher ME/PE than most people, the returns I’m getting on this are still -notable- but not AMAZING.

        Granted, I think it has something to do with the prices of BPOs rising from NPCs and the contract market just needs to catch up.

        Or am I just missing something? I don’t know if you’re still involved in this, and if you are I don’t expect you to share your market with me – but which BPOs did you buy and how much did you research them realistically in 30 days?

        I bought some capital component BPOs, researched them to ME100/PE20, then sold them. It took more than a month to research them to that level, but hey, the tower was just sitting there so why not?

        Since BPO prices just rose 10% this week, I suspect many of the researched BPOs on contract are now 10% underpriced and prices will soon stabilize.

    For some reason I had read it as JANUARY first. Makes A LOT more sense now!
