Forecast for 2008: review and update.

July 4th, 2008 · No Comments

Back in March this year, I tentatively outlined my market forecast for 2008 based on a number of assumptions as contained in my blog: Are we near the bottom. Since I am the first to admit that forecasts are rarely 100% (or even 80%) correct it would seem now is a prudent time to review my assumptions and update my forecast to cover the last 6 months of this year and a little into CY2009 as well.

Welcome FY2008/2009?

July 2nd, 2008 · No Comments

Goodbye FY2007/2008 and thanks for nothing. Let’s hope FY2008/2009 will be better and we can all plug some nasty little leaks in our portfolio’s. Being an optimist I believe at some point in the next 12 months we will see equities post some modest gains, although after a horrid June I must admit my cheerful disposition was tested. Thankfully I was able to find my Spinal Tap DVD and this put all my problems in perspective, I was after all only dealing with investment portfolio problems, not a poorly sized Stonehenge stage prop or disputes about an album cover.

Are higher oil prices a bad thing?

June 17th, 2008 · No Comments

Let me dare to suggest to readers of this blog that perhaps higher oil prices are in the longer term, good for the world and good for business. I know this may offend motorists and companies struggling to deal with the additional costs associated with higher prices, but before anyone sends me any nasty comments let’s look at the reasons for my apparently insane comment.

Investment Themes for 2009 and beyond.

May 5th, 2008 · No Comments

The current downturn in the world markets presents us with an opportunity to review or develop our investment strategy for the next few years. For some people it may mean a major overhaul such as moving from stocks to real estate, while for other it may mean just a realignment of stocks in a portfolio. In any case, it is a worthwhile exercise to review your investment strategy from time to time even if just to confirm what you actually own.

Food Prices and Biofuels.

April 25th, 2008 · No Comments

You have to love the tree hugging environmentalists, now that they have convinced most people the earth is getting warmer because of human activity they are now out to ruin the biofuel industry which is curious, as environmentalists use to be happy with the concept of renewable fuel sources.

Are we near the bottom?

March 23rd, 2008 · No Comments

One thing all investors would like to know is if the Australian Stock Market has reached a bottom and when things will start to recover. Like everyone else, I cannot predict the future but I can at least outline what I think (hope) will happen and how I am positioning my own investments.
