Banks: What are they good for?
JP Morgan © fintag News comments: When you get too much regulation, unforeseen consequences happen. The banks are slowly being strangled and those who are left are squeezing out as much as they can before the banks end up not doing anything at all except sit on legacy IT systems and store unwanted bloomberg terminals. Having followed the digital currency rise of bitcoins and the US trying to hound out the exchanges and scare users into believing they are money launderers (wired), in the real world we have hedge funds now becoming banks. Hedgies are all about risk management and having...

Monkey Portfolio Random 10 UK
monkey© google News comments: How to make 2% in a week by randomly selecting some UK stocks. The equity markets are booming and you don’t need to be a C# jockey to make money. No need to short or hedge. Enjoy the boom and trade because it will be over later this year. As noted in my last post, my excel spreadsheet has randomly (ok with a small amount of bias and weighting and manual over ride) pumped out 10 UK listed stocks. I will buy GBP100,000 of each on the close price today (24 May 2013) and sell on the close next Friday and be at least GBP20,000 better off (and that’s...

Apple won’t be in my random top 10
apple inc © fintag News comments: As has been on the cards for years, corporates are the new governments. I am not a fan of high polluting Apple (fintag) but Tim Cook’s performance yesterday (bbc) was stellar. His middle finger to the US government’s high corporate rates of tax showed the hypocrisy of other governments who bang on about tax evasion when what they really want is the spread to be much smaller between countries. All this “fair share of tax” nonsense; nobody wants to answer the simple question: How much tax is fair? Personally I think 0% is a fair...

Les bons moments sont de retour
asterix parc © fintag News comments: When there is madness in the air, it is time to make a killing. We may all complain that this free liquidity environment is stoking up the mother of all crashes (fintag gets it wrong) but if you haven’t joined the party it is time to load up and splurge on alpha. Take that van for hire business, Ocado. You know my views but we are here to make money so hats off to those Goldmanites who just never gave up and have made my day (bloomberg – 50% gain). Best to follow the Goldman rule of trading – bitch and buy or smile and short. You...

Hedge funds are one trick ponies with suicide vests on
One trick © fintag News comments: There is something not quite right at the moment. My long only throw-a-dart equity fund is up double digit percent and yet most hedge funds, trading in unprecedented bull markets, are either down or flat (hfr). So when we read hedge funds are the new banks, lending to companies the way banks used to (these days they prefer to take free money and pretend to lend it out but never actually do so they can write off their bad debts and pay themselves bonuses for saving their banks and pushing up the stock price for the benefit of even more stock option in...

Mixed Sex Accommodation – Time to party
MSA and all that © fintag News comments: While you all jerk off to the latest Twitch, I have been mining data. And so it is learned today there have been major breaches in UK hospitals; shock horror, men and women have been forced to sleep in the same room without permission. Of course the data we were all looking at was the non triple dip GDP numbers for the UK. The markets liked the “estimate” and so it seems the USD is Apple and GBP is Samsung. Until tomorrow. The ONS never gets its numbers right and readjusts them. But like a fake AP tweet, we take it on the chin and...

Tobin’s FTT is already here in the UK
Not the serial killer © fintag News comments: The last time I bought some UK equity there was a tax to pay. So not sure what all this Tobin FTT tax moral panic is all about. Stamp duty (hmrc) is payable and has been for years (since 1986 at least). It stands at a hefty 50bips and you can pay up to 150bips. Such a Tobin tax has created volatility and a market in tax avoiding securities such as CFDs so beloved of spreadbetters. So I dont know what all the Tobin FTT fuss is all about. France tried it and they raised enough revenue to fund Hollande’s illegal mistress trips to Bond...

The Gold Bubble moves towards 700
Way on down © fintag News comments: So you are long Gold, eh? The gold market has been rigged longer than Libor but no regulator wants to tackle that one. So in the meantime lots of smart people have been talking up that great inflation hedge, gold, when actually there hasn’t been much inflation despite money supply expansion via printing presses; it seems the lack of real demand in the economy is apparently why the West is heading towards Japan like deflationary living. Meanwhile, those with a Twitter like attention spans only have to look at the attached picture to see that Gold...
