Magic Markets #70: Crypto Arbitrage Update

Show Notes

Long-standing Magic Markets listeners will know the Future Forex team. They introduced the concept of crypto arbitrage to us, a process of making profits on Bitcoin pricing differences between South Africa and offshore.

Instead of taking a view on Bitcoin itself, this allows you to generate arbitrage profits and enjoy an interesting and potentially lucrative source of income each year. You may not know this, but your annual offshore investment allowance under South African Reserve Bank rules is an asset that you can tap into every year.

Magic Markets #102: Themes in Big Tech

As the dust settles on the Big Tech earnings season, we look back on what we’ve learnt from covering the leading tech companies in Magic Markets Premium in the past year, including recent shows on Meta, Amazon and Apple. The fight for eyeballs is dominating this industry. The “attention economy” is lucrative and technology platforms have found various ways to monetise it, ranging from advertising to subscription business models. If you are interested in uncommon insights, then this show is for you. Instead of focusing on the obvious elements of Big Tech earnings, we highlight some of the trends and themes that can only be identified through doing detailed research.

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.
