Magic Markets #89: Unwrapping our Research Process

Magic Markets #89: Unwrapping our Research Process

In Magic Markets Premium, we’ve developed a research process that we apply every week in analysing global stocks. In this episode, we give you insights into that process. We talk about the importance of forming a bull case and a bear case, as it forces you to challenge your view and question what might go wrong (or better than expected). We also discuss why we look at both the tenure and trading history of the management team. The competitive environment is important of course, as is an analysis of recent financial results. We finish off with a discussion on the importance of combining technical and fundamental analysis. You can subscribe to Magic Markets Premium at this link for R990/year or R99/month if you prefer dipping your toes in before committing for a full year. ...

Magic Markets #87: Investing in Mobile Home Parks

Investing in mobile home parks is a wonderful example of how far the definition of an alternative asset can be stretched. It sounds odd, yet when you dig into this asset, you’ll find that it is simply a different way of getting exposure to residential property. Westbrooke’s investments in this asset class have delivered strong USD-based returns. As we learnt on this show, some of the biggest names in the investment industry have exposure to this market, including Warren Buffett!

Magic Markets #85: US Earnings Season - July '22

Magic Markets #85: US Earnings Season - July '22

It’s just the two of us on Episode 85, which gave us a great opportunity to talk about all kinds of things, really. We started off with macroeconomics because there’s just so much going on in that space. Inflation, interest rates and even copper are top of mind for traders and investors alike. This led us into a discussion about banking regulation and how capital is being sucked out of the system by putting higher equity capital requirements on banks like JPMorgan Chase & Co. We talked about capital buffers and the impact they have on risk and returns. We also talked about US consumers and particularly how direct-to-consumer strategies are paying off handsomely for retailers like Nike, Levi’s and Lululemon – companies we have covered before on Magic Markets Premium. For anyone interested in retail, this is a great learning opportunity. We finished off with a discussion on the key themes we will be watching in this round of earnings releases. Concepts like JAWS and discretionary spending came up in the discussion. If you enjoy Magic Markets, you’ll love Magic Markets Premium where we unpack business models and financial attributes of global stocks. We always include a technical and fundamental analysis as well, ending off with whether we would take a position in the company at the moment. At R99/month or R990/year, it’s one of the best investments you can make. Subscribe here.   ...

Magic Markets #84: A First Half to Forget

Magic Markets #84: A First Half to Forget

In the past six months, the markets weren’t a happy place. Whether you were in bonds or in stocks, you suffered. The bull and bear markets of 2020 - 2022 have been severe, driven by unprecedented levels of stimulus and macroeconomic volatility. In difficult times, it’s important to lift your head and (try to) shut out the noise. The team from AnBro Capital Investments has done exactly that. They have released research around the impact on different sectors of this bear market vs. the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) that marked the end of a multi-year bull market in 2007. Growth stocks have suffered the most this year. Importantly, this is a function of valuation rather than underlying performance, as multiples had simply run too hot by the end of 2021. In this episode, we discuss the different sector impacts as well as the differences between this bear market and the GFC. We also discuss the investment thesis that drives the thinking in the Unicorn portfolio that is managed by AnBro. Episode 84 of Magic Markets is brought to you by AnBro Capital Investments, an authorised Financial Services Provider FSP number 48371. Invest in the future. Invest in growth.
