  1. Good chance to insure your investment at the moment too – most betting agencies are paying $16+ for an ALP victory.

  2. Working in the automotive industry I can assure you that when the Liberal party is elected on Saturday business confidence will sky rocket. This will equate to a strong recovery of automotive sector, including automotive finance and accessories sales (like ARB Corporation). MMS shareholders should hang on for the ride.

    I fully expect MMS to reap the benefits

  3. So the coalition supports a form of middle class welfare on the basis of propping up an unsustainable industry.
    Yet it also supports another form of middle class welfare ie. Negative Gearing on existing property which does nothing to support the construction industry.

  4. Great politics but poor long term economic policy. The problem with Australia’s car manufacturing industry are cost related. Taxpayer funded FBT assistance wont stop Australian car manufacturing plant closures. All that will happen is that more imported cars will replace Australian manufactured cars in receiving taxpayer funded FBT assistance. Only a competitive Australian car manufacturing industry will survive long term. Australia is a high cost place to manufacture anything and that is the fundamental reason our manufacturing industry continues to go offshore. Unless Australia changes to a competitive cost place to manufacture eventually only Australian Government subsidized or under the radar manufacturing industry will remain here. A useful first start would be to reduce company tax to 15%.

    • If only. I agree with you too Peter. I mentioned on Ross Greenwoods program that if we want to support jobs in Australia we need to support businesses…especially the small and the start ups for whom employing people is necessary but too risky…

  5. If the betting company’s are already paying out, than this election is a forgone conclusion, based on Rogers blog re MMS when their share price plummeted and Buffets words of be greedy when others are fearful rang in my ears, I made the quickest $15.000 profit with a buy and sell share transaction, hence a portion of your portfolio must always be in cash waiting patiently for the right opportunity.

  6. Sad day Roger when you’re promoting blatant pork-barrelling disguised as responsible economic management. Is this post based on principle or greed?

  7. Could be huge…
    I imagine there must be a lot of relieved mms shareholders out there.
    Still an election to be won though
    Does this change valuation at all? or we still thinking $13.50-$14 IV?
