Under the Radar Small Cap Stocks Making Big Moves

The famous quote appearing in the investing classic “One Up on Wall Street” from history’s greatest fund manager Peter Lynch bears repeating in today’s market conditions: “Big Companies Have Small Moves; Small Companies Have Big Moves.” Since the US Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) often sets the tone for Asian markets, market performance so far…

Mining Service Providers to Watch

Newcomers to share market investing emboldened by the dramatic reversal in market movements in late March of this year have to remain dazed and confused. Months of tracking market movements could easily lead to the conclusion that negative economic news matters little to profit-hungry investors. It is the future that counts and to a large…

New Entries to the ASX All Technology Index (XTX)

News reported on the bull.com.au on the morning of 3 September here in Australia led with yet another tale of record setting price appreciation in US markets. While the COVID 19 Pandemic has crushed stock prices of heavily affected sectors like travel and leisure, leading players in the tech sector have benefited handsomely from the…

Irrational Exuberance on Steroids

Investors old enough to remember the bursting of the dot.com bubble at the beginning of the 21st century may recall the observation made by former Chairman of the US Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, that irrational exuberance explains a market driving asset valuations beyond their fundamental worth. When the March bear market abruptly ended, the emerging…

Insider Buying Betting on Gold Miners

Stock markets in most developed countries continue their mad rush upward, with two of the most watched US indices – the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ – reaching all-time highs this week. While the ASX 200 has lagged behind in year over year market gains, the pattern evidenced is virtually identical, with the S&P 200,…

Healthcare Stocks in the News

News moves entire markets and stocks within a market, both up and down. Today that core investing assumption is arguably more apparent than ever as any positive news on a potential vaccine for COVID 19 can send an entire index into an upward trend. However, it is equally true that current market conditions have produced…

Billion Dollar Companies with Price to Earnings Ratios Under 10

The stock market is not the economy. Many market experts would strongly object to the validity of that adage, pointing to multiple times throughout investing history when stock markets have declined in the face of economic slowdowns or uncertain circumstances. However, a recent opinion piece making the rounds of Australian financial news websites entitled the…

E Commerce Stocks in a Post Pandemic World

Although the Australian economy is showing scattered signs of life, the overall picture remains mixed, according to the chief economist at CommSec. While the RBA kept interest rates at the lowest level in our history — 0.25% — the bank sees a bleak future for unemployment, with the rate to rise to 10% by year…

Taking a Chance on Upcoming IPOs

The optimism over a possible quick economic turnaround, the v-shaped recovery, took another turn for the worse on the morning of 30 July in the US. Although that country’s annualised GDP after the close of the second quarter came in better than expected at a drop of 32.9% versus a forecasted 34.7%, that number along…

More ASX Companies Entering the COVID 19 Fight

On 19 July, the daily review on global market moves from the Australian Associated Press (AAP) appearing on thebull.com had this to say about the US Standard & Poor 500 market index: Unprecedented stimulus measures and improving economic data have helped the S&P 500 rise to within about 5.0 per cent of its February record…
