Show Notes

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.

The recent Zoom - Five9 transaction is a great case study, mainly because it fell over in the end. Zoom tried to do an all-share deal and Five9 shareholders weren't interested in receiving Zoom shares in return for selling Five9.

The hosts explore the theories behind cash vs. share deals and touch on numerous practical concepts that they have seen play out in the markets. 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.

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.
