Magic Markets #41: Commodity Economy

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 #80: Hot Stocks vs. Hot Air

In growth investing, you’re often buying a piece of technology that has the potential to become a wonderfully profitable commercial operation. Sometimes, these businesses aren’t profitable yet. This creates a different risk profile for investors vs. value stocks, which investors look to for near-term cash flows. The investment styles are different and so the approach needs to be different. Together with the team at AnBro Capital Investments, we’ve been learning about growth investing with examples of specific stocks. We also try to unpack how the team separates hot stocks from hot air. In this episode, we briefly touch on the disaster of Theranos as a case study for the risks in this space. The team explains the approach taken to mitigate these risks in the Unicorn portfolio. We also looked at two fascinating examples of stocks in the healthcare industry. Dexcom offers continuous glucose monitoring technology, which anyone who has experienced diabetes first-hand will appreciate. Hanger offers orthotic and prosthetic services with a business model built around support for patients who have gone through the trauma of losing a limb. Hanger talks about “empowering human potential” and that’s a great summary for the focus of growth investing. The volatility isn’t for everyone, but the long-term stories are certainly exciting.

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. 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. ...
