Show Notes

With US markets facing incredible volatility under the realities of inflation and poor jobs data, much of the risk money has moved from equities into cryptos. This has left many tech investors scratching their heads, down 20% or even 30% on stocks with exciting prospects.

In episode 25 of Magic Markets, hosts The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla (Moe-Knows.com) discuss the importance of valuations and taking a sensible approach in frothy markets. They discuss Cathie Wood and ARK Invest, including the risks of illiquid stocks and what investors need to consider before investing in such companies.

Magic Markets #17: Trading the Scandals

Corporate governance failures. Frauds. Accounting misstatements. A “hole in the balance sheet” – unfortunately, these breakdowns in trust happen on the market. When they do, the repercussions are severe not just for shareholders in the company in question, but potentially for the market as a whole. Have you noticed that JSE corporates are doing fewer acquisitions in exchange for shares these days? Mr Price just bought Yuppiechef for over R400m in cold, hard cash. Before the Steinhoff era, entrepreneurs were more inclined to accept shares in listed companies in exchange for their businesses. Those days are gone. What impact do the likes of Greensill and Wirecard have on their respective industries? How can investors and traders spot scandals and take advantage of them? Tongaat Hulett. EOH. This episode is packed with commentary by hosts The Finance Ghost and Moe-Knows on the companies that previously dominated the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
