CYA, NGE, REF, MVT, AIK, AGF, CEE:US, TTS, CLT, SVWPA, APW.

CYA – Still looks quite cheap at 90 cents when the ASX200 is around 5,550. Wilson put out their document and it looks like this will simply be a vehicle with a mix of the WAA and WAX strategies. Continue reading “CYA, NGE, REF, MVT, AIK, AGF, CEE:US, TTS, CLT, SVWPA, APW.”

A COUPLE OF SALES & POTENTIAL OPPORTUNITIES WITH DEMERGERS

Just wanted to mention I will be unlikely to follow the stocks MEL & PTB as recently have ceased holding after being in both for about a year. Both I would describe as stories where nothing unexpected occurred yet the market moved from a cheap valuation to fair value. Continue reading “A COUPLE OF SALES & POTENTIAL OPPORTUNITIES WITH DEMERGERS”

TEMPLETON GLOBAL “GROWTH” FUND (TGG)

Growth is in inverted commas because the fund very strongly favours the value investing style over that of growth. Also the fund has disappointed investors in regards to the level of growth achieved in recent years!

I bought some shares at $1.17 today so hopefully that is about to change.

COMMENTS ON CLT, APW, AIK, GDXJ:US, RMS

CELLNET (CLT)

I first made comment about CLT for the share idea website back in March this year.

https://shareidea.com.au/idea/20160311/clt-cellnet-group-ltd

The stock was trading at 18 cents at the time and has since paid a 1.25 cent divided. Last week it received a proportional (83%) takeover offer at 28 cents. Continue reading “COMMENTS ON CLT, APW, AIK, GDXJ:US, RMS”

TAKING PROFITS IN SOME SMALLER LICs

I nearly always enter an investment assuming I may be holding that company in terms of years not months, but with some selling I have done of late it hasn’t turned out that way. A month or two ago I pointed out the difference in performance of the leading companies on the ASX versus the small ordinaries over the last year or so. Continue reading “TAKING PROFITS IN SOME SMALLER LICs”

Time for Wilson & Century Australia to get together?

If I had to bet on a couple of corporate re structures to occur in the next year or two, they would be for WAA to merge or takeover another investment company to gain size, and CYA to be rolled into a re-branded entity to assist in the market fully valuing assets on hand and the tax losses on the balance sheet. Continue reading “Time for Wilson & Century Australia to get together?”

AGF – The only way to invest in USD cash with a decent yield?

Last time I wrote about being underweight the AUD I suggested above 77 on AUD/USD was attractive to make such an underweight more meaningful. I would ideally like to be about 10% underweight around here, but stock selection is my main focus and I never like having too much in derivatives or low yielding assets to get to such a target. One way in which I have now managed that recently is by buying some AGF and also the GOLD ETF on the ASX which I already mentioned this week, more so when the AUD/USD around 76.4 but some higher. Continue reading “AGF – The only way to invest in USD cash with a decent yield?”

Small Ordinaries major bull market, is it time to get a bit defensive? Sales of ELD & NUF.

Let me admit from the start I’ve been quite cautious about overall market levels for over a couple of years at least so it may pay to ignore this post!

Most are probably aware but I wanted to note the performance of the ASX larger stocks versus the smaller sized counterparts. Continue reading “Small Ordinaries major bull market, is it time to get a bit defensive? Sales of ELD & NUF.”

NCC – A LIC with high concentration bets

I recently noticed that I hadn’t mentioned NCC here, probably as the holding was very small for me and the stock was just quietly doing a good job including some sizeable franked dividends on the way. I bought a year or two ago when the discount was probably a lot larger but didn’t get set with that much. Continue reading “NCC – A LIC with high concentration bets”
