Magic Markets #61: The Fed flip-flop

Stock-picking is a fun game that we all like to play.

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.

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. ...
