As promised, this week we continue to look through some of the key highlights, and my notes, on the top end of the market. The securities this week are NAB and ANZ.
This week we take a look at one of our top performing investments from the last year, a stock we wrote about on multiple occasions. This week we would like to explain our investment journey; why we backed the company then, our entry and exit prices and ultimately what changed our mind in January and February this year that caused us sell the stock.
This week we return to our Top Twenty series. Six months since our last review, we look to provide an update on the companies. This week, Commonwealth Bank and Westpac. Read on!
In general, the market and investors like companies that make acquisitions. Acquisitions that add scale and capabilities and are done at attractive valuations can be very accretive to a company. There are some companies that are definitely more acquisitive than others. Whether a company makes a large or small deal, some acquisitions can be more strategically beneficial and transformational than others. With this in mind, we discuss three companies we own that made very strategic deals last week.
In a previous article, we gave a rationalisation for why, despite seemingly irrational valuations, we remain overweight equities here at TAMIM. This week we continue to explore this but with a caveat, that is the potential for inflation and the reasons why it might pay to be more discerning in your asset allocation. And what are some of the businesses we have invested in to take advantage?
Some of the best opportunities on the ASX in recent times have been microcaps. Companies where the business models are scalable, management have a track record of execution, and, more importantly, companies that are well funded. Altium and EML, as best-case examples, were sub-$50m microcaps just 7-8 years ago and are multibillion dollar businesses today.
At TAMIM we are committed to educating investors on how best to manage their retirement futures.
