It's time to sharpen your hunting skills

After having spent over 20 years scouring the markets for good buying opportunities, I have come to the conclusion that it’s not just ‘what you know’ that’s important but also ‘what others don’t know’.

Why it's good to have a hedge even if you don't have a garden PART 4 of 4

Preparing for the next market crash is important because we all know that the stock market works in cycles and therefore we understand that the market at some point has to fall. That’s a fact. We also know that along the way the market will experience ‘market corrections’ which you could call mini-crashes.

Why it's good to have a hedge even if you don't have a garden PART 3 OF 4

It’s more far more important not to lose money than to make money and that is a lesson which is unfortunately either not fully understood or just ignored by most. Portfolio preservation (sometimes known as ‘capital preservation’) is where 95% of the investing public unfortunately fall down.

Bank of England rate decision preview from FXdaily

Going into the MPC announcement later this morning, no-one is expecting any change in policy, nor should they - now or indeed any time soon.  We would expect this view to be shared by the broader spectrum of investors but, as we know, the reaction today hinges on whether we get any additions to the hawks that are Messrs McCafferty and Saunders, and this would be enough to send Cable on another rally higher, where we would likely see the upper end of what we believe is the current range of 1.2500 to 1.3500.

Dixons Carphone - The chart says it all!

So I have been insisting the impact that FX could have on companies since brexit, and now the falling GBP has its first major victim. Dixons Carphone this morning issued a warning and shares fell more than 30%, with the Co. saying profits this year would be £360m to £440m, down from £501m last year.

Commodities Focus: Soft USD painting a rosy picture

In the last few days commodities have seen a decent run, the fall in the USD has really helped commodities in general with the DXY  falling 1,77% in the last 3 days alone. Alongside this we have seen some comments out of China, where apparently economic targets will be hit for the year. Let’s look at some of the price action in copper:

Q2 2017 Carnival Corporation & plc Earnings Conference Call tomorrow (during market)

During market hours tomorrow Carnival report their Q2 results. I like it when Co.'s report during market hours as it inspires volatility in the price levels. Carnival has been on a great run of late printing all time highs week after week. Having a look at the chart shares have shown no signs of slowing down, volume has been lower heading into the release but I'm sure things will move tomorrow.

The Main Players in Secondary Share Placements

Beyond the company, who is, of course, the star of the show, there are a number of key players working behind the scenes to ensure a placement comes off smoothly. Given you might not be aware of just how many are involved in the process I thought I’d give you a look at who else is involved in the process.

The lowdown on Private Placements

Secondary offerings -  What you need to know: A secondary offering occurs with the issuing of new equity for a company that is already publicly traded on a market. Secondary offerings are often referred to as share placings, placements or ‘seasoned offerings’ and are typically used to attract new investors into a company.

Review of the 'Focus on future profits' portfolio

It is a year since the author asserted that a prime driver of company share prices, over the appropriate longer term are those companies’ earnings or profit – with an expectation that distributed profits (dividend income) can be useful in combating inflation. Such income is not a bi-product but rather, for many investors, the prime reason for choosing equity investment to match long term liabilities.

In search of growth and value

On a regular basis, investors in individual company shares should review their portfolio holdings against the wider market – comparing the performance of, and prospects for, each stock with the major indices (the FTSE100 and FTSE250 in the UK). The more important consideration is the assessment of future profits and a sensible private investor might well have their own benchmark – beyond an index – extending to an earnings yield and, if income is needed (or income comfort sought), a dividend yield.

'M&A' ? Mondays and Acquisitions

Corporate news can be categorised as being either expected – serious investors will have a diary of corporate events to tell them when companies are due to announce trading updates or formal results - or unexpected. The latter, characterised as reporting good news or bad news, will range from accounting scandals to boardroom changes, and will include all new news flow which a company might deem to be meaningful enough as to have a significant impact on the worth of the business.

Greatland Gold, great excitement

With 3,000 share posts on this website alone in the last 7 days, excitement is evident.  However, those who attended yesterday’s AGM may now be rethinking their positions.  It’s not that there’s a lack of value, but expectations of becoming rich overnight are suffering a setback and this can be seen in some of the share chat.

Boardroom Secrecy ? how far should it go?

More about VCTs

Four weeks ago, on 13th October, I asked “Who benefits from Venture Capital Trusts?”  These have been heavily promoted recently, supposedly in anticipation of a more restrictive regime being introduced in the Budget in just under a fortnight’s time.  Examining my own experience, I concluded that, generally speaking, these are not a good investment.  Ironically, this has since been confirmed – and by my own VCT provider, no less!

How bad might it be?

If stock markets fall, what should we expect?  Our individual answers to this will differ, so it is not for me to make a forecast, but what if it is more than the simple ten per cent ‘correction’ that some are forecasting?  Sometimes markets reverse and then keep on falling.  What might such a reversal look like?
