$LION-PHILLIP S-REIT(CLR.SI)$ Diversification in REITs If you can't decide which REITs to invest in, why don't invest in REIT ETFs?Here are some to consider for a good balance in your portfolio.1. We definitely need to start with Singapore 🇸🇬 REITs - $LION-PHILLIP S-REIT(CLR.SI)$ Listed in Oct 2017, this REIT ETF is 100% focused on Singapore listed REITs, hence the name S-REIT There is some diversity by both geography and property sector given the global nature of Singapore REITs. It's expense ratio is pretty standard at 0.6%.There are 28 REITs in its holdings and its biggest holdings are Keppel DC REIT (SGX: AJBU), CapitaLand Integrated Commercial Trust (SGX: C38U), and Mapletree Industrial Trust (SGX: ME8U). Just over one-third of the ETF is in industrial REITs while another third is in retail REITs. The rest of the REITs are made up of various sub-sectors including healthcare, office, diversified and specialised. See 1st plot. Dividend yield is 4.8% and paid half yearly.2. Go big and more diversity! $NikkoAM-STC Asia REIT(CFA.SI)$ launched in March 2017 is the largest REIT ETF with fund size of $429 million. As the name suggests, there's more exposure to Asia Pacific REITs. Within the ETF is Hong Kong-listed giant $LINK REIT(00823)$ , and currently the 3rd largest holding at 9.5% weighting (as of 12 Aug 2022). It also has exposure to specialty REITs in up-and-coming markets, such as India's first listed REIT, Embassy Office Parks REIT (BOM: 542602), which is a large owner of office parks and commercial buildings in key Indian cities such as Mumbai and Pune.It's expense ratio is the same as Lion-Phillip's at 0.6%. The ETF holds over 40 REITs and differs from the Lion-Phillip ETF mainly via exposures, with the NikkoAM ETF having more exposure to the office and retail sub-sectors.Dividend yield is 4.67% and paid quarterly.3. Go green they say, so I invested into $UOB APAC Green REIT ETF(GRN.SI)$ This was launched in Nov 2021, and it's strategy is to track Asia Pacific REITs that are green 💚. This means green office design or green certified spaces. It does not have any Singapore REITS in its top 10 holdings. See 2nd plot.Even with a lower expense ratio of 0.45%, its performance is disappointing since launched. See the comparison in 3rd plot. The projected dividend is up to 4% (not fantastic) with quarterly payouts. Verdict (Not investment advice... Ya 🤐)For Lion-Phillip S REIT ETF and NikkoAM ASIA REIT ETF, I'm planning to hold long term and DCA. As for UOB APAC GREEN REIT, I'm going to monitor it's price for a year before deciding if I should let this one go. No point holding an underperforming and low dividend REIT ETF.
Stanley Black & Decker is cut at Deutsche Bank due to near-term risksDeutsche Bank downgraded Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE:SWK)$Stanley Black & Decker(SWK)$ to a Hold rating after having it slotted at Buy.The firm flipped to a cautious stance after Stanley Black & Decker (SWK) dramatically lowered its full-year EPS guidance.Analyst Nicole DeBlase think the current share price on SWK comes close to accurately pricing in a real trough EPS forecast.DeBlase and team also note the the macroeconomic backdrop is likely to lead to slipping residential construction activity and pointed to recent market share losses for SWK to peers."We are concerned that share loss could continue in the years to come, and if not, SWK may need to step up its R&D/innovation-focused spend to combat this, which could weigh on profitability," she warned.Deutsche Bank lowered its price target on SWK to $111 from $126.
$Treasury Wine Estates Ltd(TWE.AU)$ has just delivered a 5.3% increase in full year's profit to AUD 263.2 million on Friday 19 August. This is astounding despite substantial Chinese tariffs of 176% on Australian wines.According to CEO Tim Ford, "Wine is an affordable luxury" even in economic downturn. Treasury Wine would be mitigating higher costs by increasing prices across all product divisions in 2023.Over the last 12 months, Treasury Wine has increased sales outside of China by 106%.

$Apple(AAPL)$ Apple (AAPL) is looking at holding its annual fall product event, including the announcement of its iPhone 14 product line, on Sept. 7, according to a Bloomberg report.The iPhone 14 lineup may include four models, including a Pro and Pro Max, which some analysts expect will both receive a $100 price increase over last year's iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max models. The event is likely to see the unveiling of three Apple Watch models and perhaps new Macs and iPads as well. Bloomberg also reported that the new Apple products could reach stores on Sept. 16.
$Apple(AAPL)$ Apple stock has dropped today as investors worry about the Feds' stance on raising interest rates in the coming months to quell high inflation.However iPhone sales remain strong despite macroeconomic headwinds. I like Apple as it has a wide moat due to its eco system and solid fundamentals. Apple also has a strong cash flow which it is using in share buybacks.@Daily_Discussion @TigerStars @CaptainTiger @MillionaireTiger
19 August 2022 Things to know before you trade today: Wall Street's main indexes opened lower on Friday after U.S. Federal Reserve officials said the central bank needs to keep raising interest rates torein in inflation, dragging down mega cap growth and technology stocks. The S&P 500 fell 1.08%. The Dow Jones Industrial Averages has gone down 0.75%. And the tech-heavy Nasdaq Index fell 1.65%. Therewere 5227 losers counters vs. 775 gainers counters.Traders also have to weigh in the continured economic risks and the geo-political risks. Wall Street's summer rally has lost its steam and the recent bull rally looks set to be over.
$Sea Ltd(SE)$ BullishThis is insane. Somehow I am bullish on SEA on the mid to longterm.Investors have been selling off SEA recently given that it did not meet analyst expectations and the drop has been anything but little.However contrarian thinking will make me wonder if the price drop is excessive considering that the circumstances are bad but not entirelydevastating. For example, if I were to compareSEA with $Grab Holdings(GRAB)$ , I would bemore positive for SEA as there is still the gaming segment to pull it up.Additionally, if you look at the cash and cash equivalents of SEA vs GRAB, you will be able to tell that SEA will last longer, if the circumstances remain the same.Finally a search revealed that both George Soros and Ray Dalio recently took positions in SEA. Of course they could be wrong and they amount that they placed in is minuscule compared to their entire portfolio.On the flip side, the case against SEA is lack of total profitability, declining sales from Garena, typical valuations not working due to lack of profitability, and the risk of it being a value trap.Nonetheless I think the worst is about here and it is precisely at maximum pessimism that greatest opportunity exists.What do you think? Am I sane? Jokes aside, I've been catching up on WandaVision and I must say the plot is so cool. [Great] @TigerStars @CaptainTiger @MillionaireTiger
Take a look at Pre-Market indicators first (refer to attached image). Looks like we are ending this “mid week” of month August on the downside of things. What is interesting though is that Crude Oil indicator is also in the red ? Does it mean there is hope of picking up some oil-stock bargains ? Like $Total SA(TTE)$ or $Chevron(CVX)$ or $Occidental(OXY)$ ? Hmm…. Will hawk over them tonight. Both CVX and OXY are Mr Buffet favourites at the moment, FYI… The only question that’s at the back of my mind is whether oil price will shoot up to the sky after mid-term election ? Meaning, at the moment, oil prices are being kept artificially low as according to some write ups. Do you believe this is true ? Or is it that the news that OPEC will increase capacity by another 100,000 bpd (0.1% of global demand) come Sep, has finally filtered thru and taking effect ? LOL. What do you think ?I will still continue to watch and time my entry for $United Microelectronics(UMC)$ / $Himax(HIMX)$ / AMZN if the price is right. Lets hope the downward spiral will persists for today. Come Monday everything will be back in the Green ? LOL.
After speculation, it is true that Major shareholder Ryan Cohen sold 5,000,000 shares of Bed Bath & Beyond stock ($Bed Bath & Beyond(BBBY)$ in a transaction that occurred on Tuesday, August 16th. The shares were sold at an average price of $21.17, for a total transaction of $105,850,000.00. The sale was disclosed in a legal filing with the SEC. It is also reported that it was co-operating with financial advisors on strengthening its financial position, a likelihood that it has to get fundings to stay in business. The outlook does not look good as of this moment.At the point of writing, it has fallen to less than $11, a plunge of more than 42% from its closing price $18.55 on Thursday 18 Aug.Sourcekopsource, Reuters@Daily_Discussion @Shiropi @Tiger_Earnings @cuteypie @alanyeo
$Amazon.com(AMZN)$ Great run up in the past 3months, but is that it?According to tip ranks consensua estimate, Amazon target price is $176 in the next 1 year and that's ~25% upside potential for the business.Amazon has an amazing cloud business and it is now working to improve on its retail business as well. It has been making efforts to learn from the great features developed by Tik Tok to capture the hearts of users.Love how the beast is continuously seeking to improve and grow despite its current great success!Fellow Tiger community, do you love Amazon stock too? Let me know!@TigerStars @Daily_Discussion @MillionaireTiger @CaptainTiger
BHP (Part 2): 🗣Analysts’ Views & My Investing Experience with BHP🧐🥳 $BHP GROUP LTD(BHP.AU)$ 🗣ANALYSTS’ VIEWS: ⭐️ More analysts surveyed by Wall Street Journal rated BHP as a Buy-10 than Sell-2. 13 analysts rated as Hold. ⭐️ Target price of AUD 48.38-72.96 (see photo). ⭐️ Morgans was impressed with BHP’s performance in FY 2022, especially its strong free cash flow generation, & justifies its decision to choose BHP over rival Rio Tinto Limited (ASX: RIO). It also remains positive on its outlook & feels it has a stronger growth profile.🤩😍 My experience with BHP has been FABULOUS‼️(1) I bought BHP in April to get the free Woodside shares & sold them at 100% profit🥳 (2) Iron ore prices have been bad due to China lock-down & I wasn’t expecting a 👍 FY 2022 earnings after RIO reported & halved their dividends, but BHP SURPRISED me🤣 ⭐️ This gives me the confidence that BHP’s management is great & it’s a company that can weather bad times. As a low-medium risk investor & still wary of a possible recession, I just doubled my BHP holdings this week because their 52W high is 53.72😉(3) It’s the Top Blue Chip company in the ASX & it’s trading at a very fair price of AUD 41.55 (to me) given its high dividend yield🤩 RIO, the 2nd largest mining company in the 🌎 is trading at AUD 98.53 (close of 19/8). (4) BHP is forward looking & reactive to a changing 🌎 with clear directions & discipline. ➡️ Just last week (7 Aug), they made a fair offer to takeover Oz Minerals to expand their copper & nickel assets. However, OZL rejected the offer in an attempt to seek a higher price. BHP’s boss Mike Henry has signalled that they will not waste its bait to catch the fish, & responded, “We will absolutely remain disciplined, just because we know how important it is to ensure that we’re remaining disciplined from a capital allocation perspective”.⭐️ This gives me confidence that BHP will continue to have a healthy balance sheet💪💪💪 & is able to transit smoothly in this energy revolution🥳🥳🥳My posts are for knowledge sharing purposes (not investment advice), so please DYODD on top of reading my posts & never invest money you can’t afford to lose🤓As usual-🤔💭 Consider POV & Actions of investors + 👩🏻💻👨🏻💻 Research + 🗑FOMO & Greed = Investing Wisely 🤓🤗 + Accumulating Wealth 💵💰Source websites: Morgans, & Wall Street Journal, & The Market Herald. @Daily_Discussion (19/8) @TigerStars @CaptainTiger @MillionaireTiger @ASX_Stars @Tiger_AU @SGX_Stars
BHP (Part 1)-Our New BFF for High Dividend Yield with Capital Gains Potential💵💵💵🤝💰🥳🥳🥳 + Largest Mining Company in the 🌎 + Biggest Market Cap in ASX $BHP GROUP LTD(BHP.AU)$ Hello 🐯 friends, I decided to post on BHP today so that those of you who have shown interest in my previous post about investing in BHP/ASX stocks for their HUGE dividends💵💵💵 & possible 0% Withholding Tax have somewhere to start researching. If you haven’t read my earlier post, you can click on the Snoopy icon to reach my homepage, look for my 17/8/22 post:🕵🏻♀️🕵🏻♂️Advantages of Investing in the ASX🇦🇺 over SGX🇸🇬 & US🇺🇸 Stock Exchange💵💵💵COMPANY PROFILE: As of 2022, BHP is the largest mining company in the 🌎 as measured by market capitalisation. It produces essential commodities through their assets, including iron ore, copper, nickel, potash & metallurgical coal in Australia, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Brazil, Canada, & the US. They also hold interests in assets that are owned as a joint venture but are not operated by BHP. Their unified corporate structure was finalised in 2022 & have 4 listings, with their primary listing on ASX $BHP GROUP LTD(BHP.AU)$ ➡️ For more details, refer: https://www.bhp.com/aboutFUTURE & GROWTH: BHP is focused on a resources mix for today & for the future-resources the 🌎 needs to develop & decarbonise. (1) Copper for renewable energy. (2) Nickel for EV. (3) Potash for sustainable farming. (4) Iron ore & metallurgical coal for the steel needed for global infrastructure & the energy transition.CUTTING EDGE PRODUCTS/DEVELOPMENT: BHP seeks game-changing technologies & emerging companies to help drive sustainable growth within BHP today & provide them with a portfolio of new growth options for the decades ahead.(1) KoBold Metals: Combining best-in-class geologists with data science talent & massive datasets to find new orebodies, first.(2) Boston Metal: Molten Oxide Electrolysis technology commercialising a one-step process for CO2-free steelmaking.(3) Fervo: Next-generation geothermal technology developing innovative drilling techniques with the potential to provide cheap, baseload power.(4) Energy Vault: Specialist in gravity & kinetic energy based, long-duration energy storage products.(5) Many more🥳 Refer to website 😅🤔💭INVESTOR CONSIDERATIONS: (1) Dividends: USD 3.25, Yield of 11.2% for FY 2022 at (close of 19/8)(2) 52W Low, High: 34.033, 53.72(3) P/E, EPS(TTM): 8.619, 4.82(4) Market Cap: 210.1B (close of 19/8)(5) Healthy Balance Sheet & Excellent FY 2022 results (go to website)⭐️ Dividends are reported in USD. From BHP ➡️ The US dollar, in which the majority of our sales are made, most reliably records our global business performance and is BHP Group Limited's main reporting currency. It is, therefore, the currency in which dividends are determined. The default payment currency for BHP Group Limited is AUD, though shareholders may elect to receive GBP, NZD or USD. (The default currency for shares held on the SA register is ZAR.)‼️NOTE: The 1st purchase of any ASX stock needs to be a minimum of AUD 500. For example, if you bid for BHP at today’s closing price of 41.55, you will need to buy a minimum of 13 shares. 41.55 x 13 = AUD 540.15 + fees ➡️ Tiger Brokers gives an excellent exchange rate🤩 You can online chat to ask how much is the fees for the number of shares you want to buy. Fees are calculated based on a percentage. To me, the fees are low. Let Tiger Brokers earn a bit la, so that their stock can 🚀🚀🚀🌕⭐️ Subsequent purchases don’t need to be AUD 500. You can purchase 1 share.⭐️ If you want to sell for capital gains but still want to buy back BHP later when the price drops, all you have to do is to keep 1 share, then you can add on as & when you want😉 I’m currently doing a series of posts on clean energy metal stocks, so do follow me if you want to be updated of my latest research😉 Please also help to like & share/repost my posts, so that more 🐯🐯🐯 can access these information & we can all benefit together🤝💰🥳 Many thanks🤗 As usual-🤔💭 Consider POV & Actions of investors + 👩🏻💻👨🏻💻 Research + 🗑FOMO & Greed = Investing Wisely 🤓🤗 + Accumulating Wealth 💵💰Source website: BHP @Daily_Discussion (19/8) @TigerStars @CaptainTiger @MillionaireTiger @ASX_Stars @Tiger_AU @SGX_Stars

$KEPPEL CORPORATION LIMITED(BN4.SI)$ about this stock for a number of reasons. The company has attracted many institutional buying recently, lending support and confidence to retail investors. Management has also started share buy back at around $7. Keppel has also diversifying into renewal energy assetsuch as investment in onshore wind farm assets in Germany, Sweden and Norway.Its share price is likely to rise much more if the proposed spin off of Keppel Offshore n Marine (KOM) to SCM. It may trade range bound but it will reward the patient and loyal long term investors who believe in its business success if it can win more contracts and reap returns from its investments.

As we know before ex date price usually rally, so i did experiment with my $OVERSEA-CHINESE BANKING CORP(O39.SI)$ BullishPrevious div i sold before ex date, bought $12.23 sold $12.37 i thought it will dip alot (scared) so i profit only 0.14 while div 0.28.Bought back after ex date $11.93 (lucky)The recent div, i did not sell before ex date, the highest rally $12.46, i just keep it, and today price has moved up to $12.36 ! Means i got dividend 0.28 and the price almost backto pre-div price.I also sold my $WILMAR INTERNATIONAL LIMITED(F34.SI)$ before ex date $4.18 thinking to buy back when dip, now after div the price already 4.18 again ! So i can not buy back for now [Smile] Moral of story : if like the stock for long term just keep it permanently is ok, unless have few lots and want to take profit and buy other company with better fundamental/undervalued. not easy decision to make, invest wisely my friends 💕This is not investment advice, pls do your own DD [love you] @TigerStars
🕵🏻♀️🕵🏻♂️Advantages of Investing in the ASX🇦🇺 over SGX🇸🇬 & US🇺🇸 Stock Exchange💵💵💵I love to invest in ASX stocks😍😍😍 & here’s why:(1) Exchange Rate Advantage: ⭐️ SGD is stronger than AUD now & in the future, there will be times when AUD will be stronger than SGD, but SGD will always be weaker than USD🤓⭐️ About 96c SGD can buy 1 AUD now, which means that we’re paying less to get a good stock😉🤗⭐️ As recent as April 2022, 1 AUD could buy 1.03 SGD! This means that we could potentially gain an additional SGD 70 for every SGD 1000 we invest now, just from the exchange rate‼️If our stocks make a 20% profit, we get an additional SGD 84 on top of our profit🥳 Who doesn’t love free 💵💵💵? (2) Recovery Advantage: ⭐️ Given the clean energy revolution all over the 🌎, the ASX is positioned for a boom💥 as 🇦🇺 is an exporter of raw materials & all the WONDERFUL lithium, cobalt, nickel, copper, graphite etc is found in the land down under‼️⭐️ As SG doesn’t have any natural resources like 🇦🇺 or FAANG-MAANG/Breakthrough Biotech stocks like 🇺🇸, the stock exchange can only move accordingly to the economic outlook. If a recession hits, the SGX is likely to have a slower recovery as compared to 🇦🇺 & 🇺🇸(3) Dividend Advantage:⭐️ 🇦🇺 stocks generally pay higher dividends as compared to 🇸🇬 & 🇺🇸 stocks e.g. BHP is paying a 100% franked final dividend of USD1.75 per share, equivalent to a 76% payout ratio. ⭐️ This is a Dividend Yield of 11.3%🥳🥳🥳 (based on today’s share price from dividendmax.com)(4) Tax Advantage: ⭐️ Less Witholding Tax (WHT) for dividends for 🇦🇺 stocks as compared to 🇺🇸 stocks ⭐️⭐️⭐️ For 🇸🇬 residents, WHT for 🇺🇸 stocks is 30%, but it’s ONLY 0-15% for 🇦🇺 stocks. YES, 0% tax if the dividend is 100% franked‼️🔎To understand more about WHT between 🇦🇺 & 🇸🇬, read my earlier post on 6th July 2022 ➡️ “Invest in ASX High Dividend Stocks 🇦🇺: About Withholding Tax”Some high dividend stocks I’m holding/in my watch-list are $BHP GROUP LTD(BHP.AU)$ $Fenix Resources(FEX.AU)$ $FORTESCUE METALS GROUP LTD(FMG.AU)$ 😉 FYI, it’s not too late to hop onto the BHP dividend 🚀 ⭐️ Ex-Dividend Date: 1 Sep 2022⭐️ Payment Date: 22 Sep 2022⭐️ 52 Week Range: AUD 35.56- 53.72 ➡️ BHP is currently in recovery from the July lows & has upsides for capital gains as well. ⭐️ Closing Price (17/8): AUD 40.85⭐️ BHP (ASX: BHP) stands alone as the biggest ASX company by market capitalisation‼️What an excellent deal⁉️So fellow 🐯🐯🐯, do consider investing in ASX stocks where your profits can be multiplied😉🥳 Please help to click on the “Like” & “Share/Repost” buttons, so that more 🐯🐯🐯 can access this information & we can all accumulate wealth together 🤝💰Many thanks🤗@Daily_Discussion (17/8) @TigerStars @CaptainTiger @MillionaireTiger @ASX_Stars @Tiger_AU @SGX_Stars
Buffet Dumps Shares of 4 Stocks🗑, You Should Too😉 Though I personally do not track & follow what Warren Buffet buys, I definitely sells what he sells. Here’s why:(1) Buffett is a renowned VALUE Investor. When stocks he believes in fall in price e.g. Apple & Occidental Petroleum, he often buys more. So if you see him dumping shares instead, it’s a BIG alarm bell🚨(2) Buffet has a huge influence on stock prices both at an immediate level & a delayed level ⏱⏰Immediate ➡️ Buffet usually buys a lot or sells a lot of shares at 1 go…& when he does the stock price either goes up or drops a lot. Delayed ➡️ There are retail investors who idolise Buffet & ritually follow what he buys & sells as their investing strategy. Hence, when he sells a stock, the 1st drop in a stock’s price is due to his sale & once the sale is filed & reported, his faithful followers will do the same resulting in a 2nd drop. If we don’t sell at the same time, we’ll be left scraping at the bottom of that stock…If the company doesn’t buck up & Buffet doesn’t return to it, we can bye to our money 💸💸💸 Buying the dip (or Dollar Cost Averaging/DCA-most people use this term incorrectly) won’t work if we’re buying a company that’s failing‼️Eat the loss & Exit when we should 💪💪💪 False Hope is Not Hope😬🚨Buffet dumped Verizon altogether🔥, trims ✂️Bancorp, & significantly reduced his holdings in Store Capital & General Motors in the 2nd quarter (see photo).With shares of $Verizon(VZ)$ down nearly 12% this year, Berkshire Hathaway completely unloaded its remaining 1.4 million shares of the company in the 2nd quarter. The great Verizon sell-off started in the 1st quarter, when Berkshire dumped roughly 99% of its 158 million shares.With shares of the consumer discretionary $STORE Capital(STOR)$ still down nearly 15% this year, Berkshire dumped more than 1/2 of its position. Now it only owns 2.5% of the company.Shares of $General Motors(GM)$ lost more than 1/3 of their value this year. Berkshire sold off nearly 15% of it. Now it owns just 3.6% of the company.Shares of bank $U.S. Bancorp(USB)$ are down more than 12% this year. Berkshire sold off 5% but Buffett still owns 8% of the bank.Regarding his buys, I’m definitely bullish about our favourite AAPL 🍎 & $Activision Blizzard(ATVI)$ is in my watch-list😉Fellow 🐯🐯🐯, do you follow what Buffet buys & sells❓Let me know in the comment section, would love to hear from you🤗 Please help to like my posts & do click on the Snoopy icon to check out my homepage for posts on (1) Advantages of investing in ASX stocks & (2) Clean energy (lithium &/or TSLA) as there’s 💰 opportunities there😉As usual-🤔💭 Consider POV & Actions of investors + 👩🏻💻👨🏻💻 Research + 🗑FOMO & Greed = Investing Wisely 🤓🤗 + Accumulating Wealth 💵💰Source website: IBD @Daily_Discussion (18/8) @TigerStars @CaptainTiger @MillionaireTiger

Weekly: Indexes Performed Best in 9 months, Continuing This Week?
The major U.S. stock indexes each posted returns exceeding 3% as investors welcomed indications of a modest easing in inflation. For the $S&P 500(.SPX)$ and the $NASDAQ(.IXIC)$ , it was the fourth positive result in a rowꟷthe longest string of weekly gains since November 2021.As of last Friday,$DJIA(.DJI)$ YTD is -6%, $NASDAQ(.IXIC)$ YTD is -16.2%,$S&P 500(.SPX)$ YTD is -9.3%. $S&P/ASX 200(XJO.AU)$ & $Straits Times Index(STI.SI)$ in YTD performance is -5.2% & 4.54% respectively.Investors are betting that the FED will shift to a slower pace of interest rate hikes, and retail investors who have been silent for a long time are making a comeback. Stock purchases by retail investors rose 62% in the week to Tuesday, according to JPMorgan Chase & Co., while a basket of the most shorted stocks tracked by Goldman Sachs rose more than 30% over the same period. Shorts, who had been winners in the first half of the year by shorting stocks and bonds, suffered heavy losses as market sentiment reversed.Macro Factors:Inflation Moderation: Although U.S. inflation remains near its highest level since the early 1980s, the latest monthly Consumer Price Index report brought some relief, which triggered a stock market rally on Wednesday. Inflation rose at an annual 8.5% rate in July, marking a slowdown from the previous month’s 9.1% figure. Falling gasoline prices were largely responsible for the decline.Price Pressures Ease: The day after the U.S. government reported a modest slowdown in consumer price inflation, a separate report showed a similar easing in suppliers’ wholesale prices. The Producer Price Index rose at a 9.8% annual rate in Julyꟷthe slowest pace since October 2021, and down from 11.3% in June of this year.Improving Sentiment: A monthly gauge of U.S. consumer sentiment rose, marking the second monthly gain since it fell in June to the lowest level in records dating to 1952. Friday’s preliminary report from the University of Michigan’s consumer sentiment index also indicated that consumers’ future inflation expectations improved but remained elevated..Small Caps Recapture Lead: A benchmark of U.S. small-cap stocks outperformed by a sizable margin for the week, moving ahead of a large-cap peer on a year-to-date basis. The Russell 2000 Index added around 5% for the week, despite pulling back sharply on Tuesday.Sectors Performances:The 11 major S&P sectors all ended higher last week. The Energy sector was the top gainer, closing up 5.9%, while the basic materials sector rose 5%. Real Estate rose4.87%, Financial sector rose 4.2%, Communication Services rose 3.92%, Industrials rose 3.8%, Consumer Cyclical rose 3.41%. The Utilities rose 3.18%, Technology rose 2.61%, Consumer Defensive sector rose 1.52%, the Healthcare sector rose 1.22%.According to Factset, Excluding the energy sector, S&P 500 companies would be posting an overall earnings decline rather than an increase for the Q2 season that’s now wrapping up. The average 299% year-over-year surge reported by energy companies made the sector the biggest earnings growth contributor among all 11 sectors, according to FactSet. Including energy, the S&P 500 was expected to record an average 6.7% earnings increase as of August 11; without that sector, earnings would shrink –3.7%.Weekly Top Gainners of S&P 500：$Nielsen Holdings PLC(NLSN)$ , $Albemarle(ALB)$ , $Principal(PFG)$ , $Devon(DVN)$ , $Viatris Inc.(VTRS)$ , $Walt Disney(DIS)$ , $Aptiv PLC(APTV)$ , $Generac(GNRC)$ ,$Cardinal Health(CAH)$ , $SVB Financial Group(SIVB)$ .Other Markets:VIX Calming trend: The 8% drop in $Cboe Volatility Index(VIX)$ that measures investors’ expectations of short-term U.S. stock market volatility marked the index’s eighth weekly decline in a row. The Cboe Volatility Index on Friday closed about 43% below a recent peak set in mid-June.Oil Recovery: The price of U.S. crude $Light Crude Oil - main 2208(CLmain)$ rose, eclipsing the $90-per-barrel threshold that it had fallen below the previous week for the first time in more than five months. International oil prices stabilized and rebounded, with the easing of recession fears boosting market expectations after U.S. inflation pressures eased. The prospect of negotiations on the Iran nuclear deal is also a potential factor affecting oil prices.Gold Futures Increasing: $Gold - main 2212(GCmain)$ closed up 1.36% last week, rising for the fourth consecutive week and setting the longest winning streak since the end of December 2021. The U.S. dollar index fell by more than 1%, and the inflation pressure in the United States eased significantly in July, but the underlying inflation pressure was still high, and the Fed's tightening policy expectations significantly eased, which limited the rise in gold prices.The Week Ahead: August 15-19 Notable Earnings: $Li Auto(LI)$ ,$Tencent Music(TME)$ ,$BHP Billiton(BHP)$ ,$Sea Ltd(SE)$ ,$Wal-Mart(WMT)$ ,$Home Depot(HD)$ ,$Agilent(A)$ ,$Target(TGT)$ ,$Tencent Holding Ltd.(TCEHY)$ ,$Kohl's(KSS)$ ,$Analog Devices(ADI)$ ,$Cisco(CSCO)$ ,$John Deere(DE)$ ,$Estee Lauder(EL)$ .MondayNo major reports scheduledTuesdayHousing starts, U.S. Census BureauIndustrial production and capacity utilization, U.S. Federal ReserveWednesdayRelease of minutes from the July 26-27 meeting of the U.S. Federal ReserveRetail sales, U.S. Census BureauBusiness inventories, U.S. Census BureauThursdayExisting home sales, National Association of RealtorsWeekly unemployment claims, U.S. Department of LaborFridayNo major reports scheduled
Baillie Gifford Sells Tesla, Buys More NIO, SPOT,TCEHY,MANA
$Tesla Motors(TSLA)$ early investor, Scotland-based investment management firm Baillie Gifford, founded in 1908, sold almost its entire holdings in Chinese e-commerce companies and trimmed positions in other Chinese stocks.The firm sold off about 40% of its $Tesla Motors(TSLA)$ stake in the quarterBaillie Gifford reshuffled its portfolio in the second quarter, with the noteworthy change being a drastic cut in its holding of Chinesed stocks, a 13F filing by the firm on Monday showed.The investment strategy of Baillie Gifford is a long-term global growth strategy, which is to explore and invest in the most competitive, innovative and high-quality companies with growth efficiency on a global scale. The holding period is more than five years; the average holding period of its investment is close to 10 Years, and regards price fluctuations, news and even quarterly reports as noise during the period.In the second quarter, Baillie Gifford held 493 stocks with a total market value of US$97.508 billion, a decrease of 31.6% from US$142.654 billion in the previous quarter. The company newly opened 28 stocks and cleared 33 stocks.Baillie Gifford's 13F Portfolio - Q2 2022， source: seakingalpha1. China Stocks Fall Out Of Favor: $Alibaba Group Holding Limited(BABAF)$,$JD.com(JD)$,$Baidu(BIDU)$,$NetEase(NTES)$The 13F shows, Baillie Gifford once again significantly reduced its holdings of $Alibaba(BABA)$ and $JD.com(JD)$'s US stock ADRs, and both stocks are almost liquidated. The remaining Chinese concept stocks were all reduced, and $Yatsen Holding Limited(YSG)$, $OneConnect Financial Technology Co., Ltd.(OCFT)$, $Uxin(UXIN)$ and $Sohu.com(SOHU)$ were liquidated.$Alibaba Group Holding Limited(BABAF)$ Holding Limited holding reduced from 1.75 million to 13 shares.$JD.com(JD)$ , Inc. stake drastically cut from 68,377 shares to one share.$Baidu(BIDU)$ , Inc. stake taken down from 3.75 million ADRs to 3.08 million ADRs.$Tencent Holding Ltd.(TCEHY)$ Music Entertainment Group shares reduced from 50.09 million to 31.09 million.$NetEase(NTES)$ , Inc. stake cut in half from 263,352 shares to 103,340 shares.There are some rumors and speculations that Baillie Gifford may exchange Alibaba ADRs for Hong Kong stocks. Because the 13F position report does not need to disclose securities holdings outside the United States, it is displayed as a sell, but as of press time, Baillie Gifford has not officially responded to this.2. Holding position of $Moderna, Inc.(MRNA)$ , $Tencent Holding Ltd.(TCEHY)$,$NIO Inc.(NIO)$ , $EHang Holdings Ltd(EH)$, $Shopify(SHOP)$ Among the Chinese concept stocks held by the company, the company slightly opened positions in $Tencent Holding Ltd.(TCEHY)$, and increased positions in $NIO Inc.(NIO)$ , $EHang Holdings Ltd(EH)$ .The worsening Sino-U.S. ties, potential U.S. delisting risk, and the domestic regulatory backlash all have led to a massive sell-off in the shares. This has rendered both institutional and retail investors cautious toward these stocks.Most of the heavily held stocks of Baillie Gifford have had poor returns since the beginning of the year, but benefiting from the recent rebound in U.S. stocks, the company’s holdings have outperformed the S&P 500 since June 30.As an early investor in$Tesla Motors(TSLA)$ , Baillie Gifford has been out of pocket since 2020 as the company's stock price has risen. The current cumulative return of Berkey Capital on Tesla has exceeded 1,100%. This quarter's $Moderna, Inc.(MRNA)$ overtake $Tesla Motors(TSLA)$ as the No. 1 holding in Baillie Gifford's 13F report.In addition to $NIO Inc.(NIO)$ , the fund also increased its positions in MercadoLivre , the "South American Taobao", and $Spotify Technology S.A.(SPOT)$ , one of the world's largest music streaming service providers.On July 27, Spotify’s Q2 report for 2022 showed that Spotify’s total revenue in the second quarter was $2.906 billion, a year-on-year increase of 23%. Net loss was $127 million, widening significantly year over year. The company's MAU was 433 million, an increase of 19% year-over-year and 5 million higher than the guidance estimate.

Market should be going sideways until the announcement of the fed next round of interest rates hike.. Many analysts projected that the fedshould be only raising interest rate by 50 basis points instead of 75 basis points due to the perceived slowing down of inflation.. so there is no need to be too aggressive anymore..However.. inflation is still much higher than the norm and much more sticky due to supply chain issues and the amount of stimulus still sloashing around in the market.. Any increase in interest rates not only affects individuals like us.. but also institutions and even government as it makes it more expensive to borrow money and also to refinance existing loans.. so there is a limit to how much the fed can increase interest rates before everything starts to fall apart.. In such environment.. one can continue to explore options.. selling calls and puts to raise cash [Grin]
$Apple(AAPL)$ Apple stock has dropped today as investors worry about the Feds' stance on raising interest rates in the coming months to quell high inflation.However iPhone sales remain strong despite macroeconomic headwinds. I like Apple as it has a wide moat due to its eco system and solid fundamentals.

Why I buy Manulife stock sell call at $19 wit 0.25 premium
Why Manulife stock is still attractive. Overall, Manulife Financial has been one of the most attractive Canadian dividend stocks for many years. It currently offers an attractive dividend yield of around 5.4% $Manulife(MFC)$ Sell call when have 100 shares is a good way to earn 1% extra monthly with the dividend can earn more $SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust(SPY)$ A covered call is a kind of options strategy that offers limited return for limited risk. A covered call involves selling a call option on a stock that you already own. By owning the stock, you’re “covered” (i.e. protected) if the stock rises and the call option expires in the money. A covered call is one of the lower-risk option strategies and it’s even suitable for beginning options investors.Here’s how a covered call works, the pros and cons and when to use this option strategy.How a covered call worksA covered call is a basic options strategy that involves selling a call option (or “going short” as the pros call it) for every 100 shares of the underlying stock that you own. It’s a relatively simple options trade to set up, and it generates some income from a stock position.A covered call is a kind of hedged strategy, in which the trader sells some of the stock’s upside for a period of time in exchange for the option premium. Normally, selling a call option is a risky thing to do, because it exposes the seller to unlimited losses if the stock soars. However, by owning the underlying stock, you limit those potential losses and can generate income.At the expiration of the call option, one of two things will happen:If the stock finishes above the call’s strike price, the price at which the call goes in the money, then the call buyer buys the stock from you at the strike price. The call seller keeps the option premium.If the stock finishes below the call’s strike price, then the call seller keeps the stock as well as the option premium. The call buyer’s option expires worthless.Let’s run through an example to see how it all works.Stock ABC is trading at $20 per share, and a call with a strike price of $20 expiring in three months costs $1. The contract costs a premium of $100, or $1 * 1 contract * 100 shares per contract. To execute a covered call, the investor buys 100 shares of ABC for $2,000 and then sells one call to receive $100.Here are the profit and loss on the various elements of the covered call:In this example, the trader who set up the covered call breaks even on the whole trade at $19 per share. That’s the stock price of $20 minus the $1 premium received. At stock prices below that, the trader loses money, more than offsetting the $1 premium received. At a stock price below $20 at expiration, the trader keeps the stock and keeps the full premium.At a stock price of $20 at expiration, the trader would keep the full $1 premium and the stock usually will not be called by the call buyer. So, the trader makes $100 at this stock price.At stock prices above $20 at expiration, the trader’s gain is capped at $100. While the short call loses $100 for every $1 increase in the stock price above $20, that loss is fully offset by the stock’s gain. As a result, the trader ends up with a maximum of $100 in profit, the original premium received. In this situation, the trader loses all potential stock profits above $20 per share.In a real sense, if the stock rises too high above the strike price, the trader has lost money – money that otherwise would have been made. But by holding 100 shares of the stock for each contract that’s been sold, the trader hedges the risk and still can enjoy some upside.In all covered calls, the maximum upside is the option premium, regardless of where the stock goes. While you can’t make any more than that, you can definitely lose more. The stock can fall – all the way to $0 potentially – and the premium will be the only upside. In this example, you’d make $100 on the option premium but lose $2,000 on the stock, leading to a net loss of $1,900.Of course, if the stock fell a lot, you could repurchase the call option for less than you paid and then sell the stock position, if you prefer.What are the pros and cons of a covered call?A covered call can be an attractive options strategy for a variety of reasons, but like all options strategies, it has its downsides, too.Advantages of a covered callGenerates income from a position. A covered call can generate income from a stock position that may or may not pay a dividend, increasing its overall profitability.Relatively low risk. A covered call is a relatively low-risk way to trade options since you protect the short call with your stock position.Easy to set up. A covered call is also a relatively easy position to establish. It’s important to first buy the stock and only then sell the call.Hedges your risk. A covered call hedges your risk in a position by providing some compensation.Can be re-established over and over. If the call expires worthless and you retain your shares, you can set up the covered call again and again. Even if your shares are called from you, you can repurchase the stock and set up a covered call again.Disadvantages of a covered callSmall, limited upside in exchange for downside. With a covered call you can earn a relatively small amount of income but must bear any downside from the stock, leading to a potentially lopsided risk-return setup.Trading away all the stock’s upside. One of the reasons you likely own the stock is for its potential to rise over time. By setting up a covered call, you’re trading this upside until the option’s expiration. If the stock rises, you lose a gain that you could have earned.May “lock up” your stock until option expiration. By selling a call option, you may feel disinclined to sell your stock until the option expires, though you could repurchase the call option and then sell the stock.Requires more capital to set up. With a covered call you’ll need money to buy stock and that requires substantially more cash than you’d need in a pure options strategy.May create taxable income. Selling a successful covered call will generate taxable income in a taxable account. In addition, if the underlying stock is called from you, it may create a further tax liability if you had a capital gain on the stock.When to use a covered callA covered call can make sense in a few scenarios, including the following:You don’t expect the stock to move much. With a covered call, a trader doesn’t want the stock price to rise above the option’s strike price, at least until after the option expires. And it’s good if the stock doesn’t fall much either. If the stock stays broadly flat, you can still collect your premium and not lose much, if any, gains.You want to generate income from a position. If you’re looking to take advantage of the relatively high price on options premiums, you can set up a covered call and generate income. In effect, it’s as if you’re creating a dividend from a stock.You’re trading in a tax-advantaged account. If you’re using covered calls, you’re generating income and potentially may have the stock called away, both of which can create tax liabilities. So, setting up covered calls inside a tax-advantaged account such as an IRA may be attractive, helping you avoid or defer taxes on these gains.When to avoid a covered callA covered call should probably be avoided in the following situations:You expect the stock to rise in the near future. It makes little sense to sell away a stock’s potential upside in exchange for a relatively small amount of money. If you think a stock is poised to move higher, you probably should hold on and let it rise. Then after it’s climbed a lot, you might consider setting up the covered call.The stock has serious downside. If you’re holding a stock, you generally expect it to rise. But don’t use a covered call to try to get extra cash from a stock that looks like it’s going to drop significantly in the near or long term. It’s probably best to sell the stock and move on, or you could try to short sell the stock and profit on its decline.Bottom lineA covered call can be a relatively low-risk way to use options to generate income, and it’s often popular with older investors who don’t want to sell their positions but would like some income. With a covered call you’ll earn a limited return in exchange for running an often-limited risk.
QQQ, PSQ, TQQQ, Which Leveraged ETF You Prefer To Buy?
In the first few trading days of the New Year, the US stock index collectively saved the street.$S&P 500(.SPX)$-1.87%, Nasdaq-4.46%.
Nasdaq here, I would like to say more$NASDAQ 100(NDX)$. Instead of the Nasdaq Composite Index, which everyone understands, its performance is-4.53%.$NASDAQ(.IXIC)$
To say that these two indexes have similar daily fluctuations and similar index points. Unless otherwise specified, there is no obvious misunderstanding of substituting both. But as the Q&A website says, the difference between Nasdaq 100 and Nasdaq synthesis is like the difference between the top 10 students in the class and all the students. Nasdaq Composite Index contains more than 3,000 targets, and Nasdaq 100 is its selection, including 100 companies with the largest market value listed on Nasdaq Stock Exchange, except for financial companies.
Since its establishment in 1985, the increase has been gratifying for more than 30 years. Especially the performance in recent 10 years is enviable. The specific increase can be seen in the following table.
If you want to say why my motherland's stock index can't create a long bull trend, you feel that the technology of index compilation is worth tackling like a chip.Post an article hereInterested tiger friends can read it. In addition, it is gossiped that Nasdaq 100 has been selected by 7 non-American companies, including 4 from China, Baidu, JD.COM, Netease and Pinduoduo. At this point, it is better than S&P, and Dow Jones has never been selected as a foreign company.
And tracking the investment Nasdaq, the first ETF associated with it,$NASDAQ-100 Index ETF(QQQ)$. This is also the main point of this article, those ETFs that track Nasdaq in a fancy way.
As a market value weighted index, the top10 constituent stocks of Nasdaq 100 Index are as follows.
Specific weight distribution, if you read the above article, then you will have a better understanding of why the weight of each company is this number. I feel that Netflix is not in the top ten, but it is actually ranked 11th. Strictly speaking, Netflix is still ranked in the top10 as a company, because Google occupies two places.$Netflix(NFLX)$$Alphabet(GOOG)$$Alphabet(GOOGL)$
QQQ just tracks the Nasdaq 100 index in an ordinary way, so it is good to be accurate. The richness of US stock ETF is reflected in the fact that it can be reversed and doubled. For example, as we are going to talk about,$ProShares Short QQQ(PSQ)$And$ProShares UltraPro QQQ(TQQQ)$.
The so-called reverse ETF means that the index rises by 1%, while the reverse ETF falls by 1%. The so-called leveraged ETF means that the index rises by 1%, and it rises by 2% or 3%, depending on whether it is 2 times leverage or 3 times leverage.
In the last trading day, Nasdaq 100 fell by 1.1%, QQQ was-1. 08%, PSQ was1.07% and TQQQ was-3. 27%. As you can see, it can only be as accurate as possible, and some errors are inevitable. The key reason why leveraged ETFs can't be held for a long time is that they have long-term losses. This seems to be a mathematical problem, which deserves a separate article. Interested tiger friends can search for self-study first.
At this point, as a small popular science post, I mainly take Nasdaq as an example to witness with youRichness of US stock ETFs. As for the rate, it has not been carefully screened. Generally speaking, the management fee of mainstream ETFs like QQQ, which track the market, is relatively low, at 0.2%. In contrast, PSQ and TQQQ are both 0.75%. To some extent, it also reflects the scale effect.
However, how do you think leveraged ETFs do it?
From the perspective of leveraged ETF company, assuming that it has a net value of 1 million now, in order to track the index twice, it is theoretically necessary to borrow another 1 million from the market (buying futures is essentially lending it funds by the exchange), so that its exposure becomes 2 million.
So, how does reverse ETF do it? Do you hold short positions?
[21st June] Stocks To Beat Recession/Inflation 🚀💰✅
$Apple(AAPL)$ $NetApp(NTAP)$ It's just about the middle of the year, and there's no end in sight for stock market volatility.Investors, already reeling from sharp declines in stocks, were dealt another surprise last week as the Federal Reserve raised interest rates by three-quarters of a percentage point. The central bank was clear that it was taking steps to snuff out inflation, but its actions further fueled worries of an impending recession.Investors are searching for a reminder to keep their long-term objectives in focus. The top Wall Street pros are naming their favorite picks, even as uncertainty looms, according to TipRanks, which tracks the best performing analysts.Here are two stocks to highlight this week.Apple With more than $2 trillion in market capitalization, Apple (AAPL) is one of the largest companies in the world. It has all the resources to sail through the difficult times and keep growing with time. Nonetheless, Apple's size has not kept it immune from the current issues that are weighing the economy down. The iPhone-maker itself expects as much as an $8 billion hit on sales in the June-end quarter, due to the persistent component supply constraints, which have been aggravated by the Covid-led lockdowns in China. Moreover, Apple also expects revenue headwinds from the stoppage of shipments to Russia. Macroeconomic headwinds are making Apple's near-term outlook cloudy, but analysts are looking at the long-term prospects. Deutsche Bank analyst Sidney Ho recently reiterated a buy rating on the stock despite trimming the price target to $175 from $200. Although Apple did not provide guidance for the fiscal third quarter, Ho expects low single-digit year-over-year growth, taking the growth obstructions into account. Looking at the persistent geopolitical issues, rising interest rates and slowing consumer spending, the analyst said that he wouldn't "be surprised to hear more chatter about Apple cutting orders." No doubt, the stock has shed almost 26% in 2022. But Ho finds this performance as good as, or even slightly better than its mega cap peers. Further, he said, the macroeconomic headwinds will not allow the AAPL stock valuation to reach its 5-year high of more than 30 times earnings per share in the next 12 months, giving another reason to consider adding the stock now. Sidney Ho holds the spot at No. 127 among almost 8,000 analysts followed on TipRanks. Moreover, he has been successful at 72% of his stock ratings, returning an average of 22.3% on each.NetApp Deutsche Bank's Ho is also bullish on is NetApp (NTAP), which provides enterprise storage and data management solutions. The stock has been no stranger to the current setbacks weighing industries down, and its shares have declined about 30% in the year-to-date period. The higher costs of components and logistics that resulted from supply chain constraints have dented the company's margins. These issues are likely to be near-term hurdles. Despite the headwinds, NetApp is showing tremendous execution capabilities, and the company has managed to keep its balance sheet strong and in a net-cash position. Having a strong balance sheet has helped this tech giant be consistent with its dividend payments. (See NetApp Dividend Date & History on TipRanks) Ho points out that the company's shares have underperformed its IT hardware peers by a significant margin in 2022. However, this has opened a great buying opportunity for compounding returns in the long run. The analyst was a little disappointed when NetApp could not reach its own public cloud annual recurring revenue target due to higher customer attrition and salesforce turnover in the cloud operations unit. However, Ho is not too worried, as NetApp has plans in place to address these issues. Additionally, Ho is confident that the company's shift in focus from merger and acquisition activities to share buybacks will boost per-share earnings growth. The analyst reduced the price target from $90 to $84, but upgraded the NTAP stock to buy from hold, keeping in mind the long-term upside.
$Qualcomm(QCOM)$ Inventor of mobile communication standards secures market leadership: Qualcomm has been leading the development for mobile communication standards and owns multiple patents and intellectual property across 5G/4G/3G standards. Besides monetizing the technology know how through licensing, Qualcomm also offers various connectivity solutions and products for smartphone makers, automotive customers, Internet of Things device makers and companies in the networking industries. It is No.1 in the supply of radio frequency + modem chips and No.2 in the supply of processor chips for the smartphone industry. It is the market leader in the supply of telematics solutions to the automotive industry and is building out the connected car ecosystem.Technology leadership and innovation drive positive growth outlook: With its technology leadership status in connectivity solutions, Qualcomm has an enviable position of earning license fees from its inventions. The fees grow in line with proliferation of new devices and the advent of new technologies. With its know how, Qualcomm has identified smartphone, IoT and automotive industries as the key areas to focus its innovations on. 5G network penetration will drive higher demand for 5G smartphones while proliferation of IoT devices will drive demand for wireless semiconductor components. Connected cars and development of self-driving vehicles over multi year periods will ensure strong sustainable growth.15 key industry trends to expand addressable market size 7x to over USD 700 bn over 10 years. Qualcomm identified 15 key industry trends that will support its growth and market expansion opportunities over the next decade. It sees addressable market expansion from about USD 100 bn currently to over USD 700 bn at the end of the period. It's aspirational but does point to significant growth opportunities for Qualcomm. Rising semiconductor content and its innovation led tech leadership drives pricing power and margins supporting higher shareholder returns. Near term, Qualcomm projects a mid- teens 3-year revenue CAGR and sees revenue of USD 46 bn and operating margin of 30% in FY24.RisksKey growth risk for Qualcomm in the near term is slower than expected demand growth for 5G mobile devices given the current dependence on this core segment. Worse than expected competition from Mediatek or emerging Chinese competition eg Hi-Silicon could lead to negative share price reaction first and subsequent share losses. Failure to execute on its growth plans in both the IoT and automotive segments could lead to disappointment over its longer term growth targets. From the looks of it, I will be cautious due to the cyclical downturn.@TigerStars DYODD
