End of financial year thoughts.

June 25th, 2008 · No Comments

Well what a terrible first half of 2008 and a shocking close to the financial year. After watching the market over the last week or so, I decided the best course of action was to finish work just after lunch and catch up with some reading and movie watching. One thing I was not doing was selling as I have no idea why people wait until this time of year to sell and take tax losses. In fact I picked up a few small parcels of shares as I hope we will see some upward market movement in July.

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.

Can we prevent further turmoil in the market?

As the casualty list from the stock market fall grows, the call for tougher regulation becomes louder. But will tougher laws and regulation really help? Can we prevent investors losing money via financial scams and corporate failures?

A time to reflect.

April 10th, 2008 · No Comments

Sometimes, and I mean only sometimes, I look back at things I have written and they actually make sense. So today I will indulge myself and review some of the comments I have made in editorials I have written for the shareswatch blog.  For in uncertain times, it is often useful to spend a moment or two reflecting on the past.

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.

Sol’s Magical Mystery Tour of Telstra.

February 25th, 2008 · 3 Comments

You have to pay credit where credit is due and is appears that Telstra’s CEO, Sol Trujillo, is a master of the rules followed by many management consultants and top level executives. Thus he was able to impress a number of analysts and financial journalists with Telstra’s recent half year financial results, when in fact there was not much to be impressed about.

Where to for the Australian Economy?

February 12th, 2008 · No Comments

Let me first start by saying I think any predictions about the future are best described as forward looking guesstimates. So before reading on, please remember this is just my view and I am not aware of any ability I have to see clearly into the future.
