Sell the dogs (sorry dogs)

Simon Shares

  • Ellies (JSE code: ELI) results were as ugly as expected and the company is being kept alive by their bankers at Standard Bank. Megatron is worthless after buying it for R180million in 2008 and spending some half billion keeping it afloat. A few weeks ago in FinWeek I said sell ELI at around 60c and I would not be a buyer now.
  • Kumba (JSE code: KIO) results were not bad. They have got their cost down to $34/tonne from closer to $55 previously. It does mean less production to get the lower costs and the market is still in massive over supply but they at least now positioned to (likely) survive.
  • SABMiller (JSE code: SAB) got an extra pound with the offering being revised to GBP45 but some minority shareholders are still not happy as the pound has weakened. One can hardly blame SAB or AB Inbev for that but the minority shareholders need 25% to block the deal and that's very unlikely.
  • Kristia looks at ETF costs in her blog this week.
  • The Fat Wallet Show takes Magnus Heystek to task for suggesting all ETFs are evil and have been mis-sold over the years.

Anchoring - sell the dog

Simon talks about getting rid of those zombie stock in your portfolio; when, why and how. Most importantly they are causing pain and the price you paid for them does not matter.

    • Why is it that you can buy Satrix ETFs such as STX40, STXDIV & STXRAFI from your stock broker in their online trading platform... And from Satrix directly? What is the difference between where you buy into these? Are you getting less if you don't buy directly from Satrix?

Drikus Combrink - Capicraft Investment Partners

Locally earnings season has come to an end and markets are at or near all time highs. Are these valuations justified by the earnings we've seen? Good, bad, ugly and any stand outs. Drikus touches on some concerns (SABMiller & Richemont) and suggests really focusing on the core numbers rather than top line numbers that could be skewed by currency moves, mergers or new stores. His major concern remains QE and how that unravels.

Stock Broker vs. FSP

Simon Shares

Charles Savage, CEO Purple Capital / Easy Equities

What's the difference between a traditional stock broker and a Financial Services provider (FSP)? Is a FSP risky and do I really own the shares? These are popular concerns so we got Charles on the line to address the issues. We also briefly touched on their new baskets they launched last month.
