Show Notes

The quick-service restaurant (QSR) sector has been a clear winner globally under lockdown conditions. When you're worried about catching a virus, a pizza served to your car window is more appealing than a sit-down restaurant.

Share prices of companies like Chipotle and Domino's have increased sharply. However, the threat of food delivery apps cannot be ignored, as the value chain in this industry is far from settled.

In episode 36 of Magic Markets, hosts The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla (Moe-Knows) complain about their waistlines while commenting on the restaurant sector and the competitive realities in that space. It's a fun episode with plenty to learn about this important market.

Magic Markets #62: Afrimat - a track record as Hotazel

With a share price and earnings track record that puts most companies to shame, Afrimat is widely regarded as a company with excellent capital allocation discipline and focused strategic execution. Starting in the construction industry, Afrimat has evolved into a strong mid-tier miner. Afrimat’s secret lies in owning a diversified portfolio of counter-cyclical businesses. The overlay of this cyclicality, when viewed in aggregate, creates a more attractive earnings profile and de-risks the entire operation.

This is a rare opportunity to tap into the mind of a top executive, with plenty to learn along the way for all of us. ...

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.
