Show Notes

The commodity economy is playing out in front of our very eyes, not just in South Africa but in other important African jurisdictions as well.

The obvious impact is on mining companies themselves, but there are other South African companies that have benefitted along the way, like MTN.

In an inflationary environment where Fed Chair Jerome Powell seems quite comfortable with letting durables inflation run, commodity-related stocks are making a strong case for inclusion in our portfolios.

Magic Markets is your invitation to join The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla as they discuss the markets, their portfolios and all things finance-related.

Magic Markets #53: Bad Balance Sheets

In Episode 53 of Magic Markets, we kicked things off with a brief discussion on Jerome Powell (who is now apparently considered “hawkish”) and the Turkish Lira, which is rather broken. We then moved from fiscal balance sheets to company balance sheets. In particular, we explored what happens when bad balance sheets happen to good people. In the aftermath of the pandemic, we’ve seen companies struggle with unsustainable debt. In some cases, this is an opportunity for large new equity investors or existing anchor shareholders to increase their stakes at a depressed valuation. By working through examples like Tongaat, Brait and EOH, we show how important the balance sheet can be. Magic Markets is your invitation to be part of our discussions on macro themes and company-specific news in the markets. ...

Magic Markets #46: M&A - Cash vs. Share Deals

In Episode 46 of Magic Markets, The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla take a break from trading-related concepts to talk about another critical part of the financial markets ecosystem: mergers and acquisitions.

Zoom tried to do an all-share deal and Five9 shareholders weren't interested in receiving Zoom shares in return for selling Five9.

The benefit of having more than 25 years of combined financial markets experience is clear in this episode. Magic Markets is your invitation to sit in on our conversations about the markets. ...
