Right now, inflation is the new bogey man. And it’s having an impact on equity markets. But is rising inflation just a blip caused by short-term bottlenecks in the supply of labour, or a long-term structural issue? If it’s just a blip – which I think it is – then any weakness in the share prices of high quality companies will provide us with a classic contrarian opportunity. Continue…

IPOs can give you wonderful returns if you get them right, but burn your money if you don’t. And that’s clearly shown in the trajectories of the companies that have listed since the COVID-induced market lows in March 2020. Because, while there were some big winners – like Cettire (ASX:CTT), Aussie Broadband (ASX:ABB) and Universal Stores (ASX:UNI), there were also some clear losers. Continue…

The Australian gold sector occasionally throws out an interesting opportunity, and the severe share price decline of Regis Resources (ASX: RRL) over the past nine months, coinciding with the recent $650 million capital raising (241 million new shares at $2.70 per share) to acquire the 30 per cent interest in the Tropicana operation, may soon be a buying opportunity. Continue…

Since late 2020, we’ve pivoted our portfolios to businesses likely to benefit from the economy’s reopening – and generated excellent returns.

CoreLogic has just reported that national dwelling prices rose by 2.3 per cent in May. That’s an annualised rate of more than 28 per cent. And with lenders continuing to provide cheap and easy access to credit, and investors showing lots of interest, I don’t see the property market cooling off any time soon. Continue…

On Monday, Sydney Airport (ASX:SYD) was the recipient of an unsolicited, indicative, conditional and non-binding proposal from a consortium of infrastructure investors including IFM, QSuper and Global Infrastructure Management for $8.25 per share. The bid represents a 42 per cent premium to the last close price, albeit remains at a discount to its pre-COVID-19 share price while being approximately 20 per cent higher than most recent peaks of around $6.90 per share reached in June and November last year. Continue…

It is always interesting chatting about the big macroeconomic forces impacting and influencing corporate profits, property prices and job prospects. But our main game is investing. And investing in smaller companies not only offers the opportunity to benefit from company ownership, there’s the potential bonus of rapid growth, long-term growth or both. Continue…

Most articles we read are about hot stock tips to buy. Occasionally there are articles about “shorting” opportunities, albeit most are directed to sophisticated investors given the risks around shorting (i.e. a potential loss that exceeds your initial investment). Very few articles talk about when to sell. Continue…

Travel businesses have really suffered due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions and border closures, but with many economies re-opening, unleashing a likely tsunami of pent-up travel demand, the future is looking brighter. And companies like Webjet (ASX:WEB), the Australasian online travel agent and global hotel room intermediary, should be major beneficiaries. Continue…

Capricorn Metals is a junior gold company that is entering an exciting time in its development phase. With the company very close to first gold pour and commissioning underway at its 100 per cent owned Karlawinda project in WA, we believe there is significant re-rating potential if the company successfully executes on targeted project metrics over the next 6-12 months.
