Market: 2012 High, But Not For Long.

March 29th 2012 - Australasian Investment Review – (AIR)

The Australian market sparked yesterday for a second day in a row, despite a down day on Wall Street Tuesday night and weakness in other Asian markets.

But the gains won’t last today after a rough night on markets in Europe and the US which fell after the rest of Asia lost ground.

The share price futures contract had our market opening around 18 points lower.

The Aussie dollar was also sold off here and in offshore trading and fell below $US1.04, but recovered to trade around that level in early Asian trading this morning.

Wall Street was off close to 0.5% on worries about the health of the US economy, only days after those same worries were eased by the comments from Fed chairman, Ben Bernanke. Losses were closer to 1% during trading. [Read more →]

Downgrades: More Flow As Leighton Warns And Stockland Cuts.

March 28th 2012 - Australasian Investment Review – (AIR)

Out of the blue, earnings downgrades for the 2011-12 financial year have started appearing, less than a month after the interim reporting season ended.

Yesterday Leighton and Stockland revealed surprise lower earnings outlooks.

On Monday the Bank of Queensland revealed its downgrade in an update for its interim announcement due on April 19.

It revealed an interim loss of $91 million (on underlying earnings of $222 million) after lifting impairment and other charges and revealing a $450 million capital raising.

Last Friday QR National, the Queensland rail group, surprised by revealing that rain and industrial troubles had trimmed its full year guidance.

It said earnings before interest and taxes in the year ending June will be between $540 million and $580 million, down from the $578 million forecast in the prospectus for its November 2010 float and reaffirmed in last month’s interim earnings report.

“It is the Company’s intention to undertake an equity raising of sufficient size to significantly reduce its debt facilities and thereby strengthen its balance sheet. [Read more →]

Feature: Big Investors Become Bullish, Again.

March 23rd 2012 - Australasian Investment Review – (AIR)

It has taken quite a while, but the equity bulls are back and starting to bellow.

They’ve been gathering strength now for a couple of months - February saw them start to sound very upbeat.

It is not the first time they have proclaimed rebound for the markets, having done it in 2010 and 2011, only to founder on the rocks of the dysfunctional eurozone.

But this time is different (I know they always say that), the eurozone’s woes has been fixed for the time being, we are ignoring those fears over China, and the US economy is rebounding.

The March survey of big investors from Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, the noise from the bulls has become a roar as growth expectations improve sharply.

This is showing up in more interest in shares, lower involvement with cash, more enthusiasm for the US (and Japan) and less for China and other emerging markets. [Read more →]

Yes, the new Mining Tax is here. And yes, your power bills are about to increase. But there’s a somewhat sneaky way you – as an investor – can offset your rising electricity bills.
At least that’s the way it looks after this statement from Victoria’s Energy Minister, Michael O’Brien.

It seems O’Brien has a plan… A plan that will create new jobs… Drag some revenue to the state government’s purse… And, surprisingly, create new investing opportunities for you…

News.com.au reports this morning:

‘Energy Minister Michael O’Brien yesterday confirmed the coalition was seeking expressions of interest for new allocations of coal that were hoped to deliver hundreds of millions of dollars in royalties, as well as billions of dollars of investment in mines, processing and infrastructure.’
