Risk is returning

September 10th, 2014 · No Comments

  • We see risks to stocks increasing, it’s time to get more cautious.
  • The Ukrainian situation seems to escalate with the eurozone economy already in big trouble, but consumption growth in the US came to a halt and QE will follow, stock buybacks.
  • After the big rallies in stocks and bonds, time to bet against the euro and on a spike in the VIX, whilst being more cautious overall.

Revolt in the Eurozone?

September 10th, 2014 · No Comments

  • The present path of policies in the eurozone is not sustainable for economic nor for political reasons.
  • A move toward complete monetary union is politically unfeasible and the prospect of countries bolting from the policy constraints is real.
  • We believe the ground is more fertile for policy changes not only because of the above, but also because the German economy is no longer immune from the eurozone woes.
  • Mario Draghi seems to prepare the ground for a more aggressive monetary policy, European shares could benefit and the euro will fall further.

  • TraceCop is a stable cash flow generating product that has a unique database which makes the product difficult to dislodge from the market.
  • Growth opportunities lie in its new product Savant, the sale of which goes largely through a big channel partner selling it under their own name and ramping up efforts.
  • Not widely known is that Savant beat a much bigger competitor to a substantial order, sign of market acceptance.

The Japanification of Europe

August 31st, 2014 · Comments Off

  • The eurozone is resembling Japan’s lost decades ever closer on a host of metrics, including demographics, growth, inflation, yields and debts. In some respects, the eurozone crisis actually resembles the Great Depression of the 1930s.
  • If policy makers do not respond to this crisis, things are likely to get worse rather than better.
  • Japan responded with new policy initiatives, getting it out of deflation; its stocks remain a better bet until the ECB wakes up.

Keynesian versus supply-side economics

August 25th, 2014 · Comments Off

  • In the battle of economic ideas, one that has been raging for nearly four decades is that between supply-siders and Keynesians.
  • While we think some supply-side measures can be useful, one really has to be specific as to the kind of measures and expected effects, it’s all in the details.
  • A general supply-side approach seems a little out of place as a recipe to combat what is a distinctly Keynesian crisis.
