973.96 in cash distributions from various S-REITs. My collection is becoming my cash machine! HPH Trust was added to my dividend stock portfolio as a proxy to China’s growth. Right now, I am looking to add K-Green Trust or China Merchant Pacific to my profile. Based on the management, KGT is probably looking to get some good assets from its sponsor. China Merchant Pacific had also just acquired 2 new expressways in China and divested its non-core real estate business in Australia.

Historical default statistics look better and better too as capital is more easily available to roll personal debt no matter how the underlying credit is actually doing. So in this continuing business, you have the utmost leverage and balance sheet size at the true point of maximum risk. Financial companies are obviously reporting record profits and incredible ROEs, so the stock prices tend to be at high valuations also.

At this point, a small rate bump can cause a complete collapse. That is type of what occurred in the 2000s before the collapse (and has occurred many times before). Smart CEO’s remained out of the game. People like Chuck Prince begged regulators to clamp down with this reckless financing but inexplicably held making the same of their own to be able to keep market talk about.

Folks like Dimon opted out. They refused to play the game. Anyway, that cycical and pro-cyclical factor is another reason why I hated financials for a long time. Today, I don’t believe we are in that point at all of major risk, and we are certainly not at a cyclically risky point, not by an extended shot. I also didn’t like that bank professionals exercised their call options (bonus deals).

They take huge risk and if they be successful, they walk with huge bonuses away. If they fail, shareholders lose money. This appeared like a raw offer to me. So I haven’t really been a fan of financials in any way. I only get worked up about them at attractive prices and that is what’s driving me to write this stuff now ( I used to be also very bullish in early 2009 and made some big bets then). Do Personally i think the way I did so about financials back then still?

  • What is the correct discount rate to use in an unlevered DCF analysis
  • Withdrawal: Could be withdrawn after 2 months of leaving job and if not employed again
  • Simon Property (SPG) – income of $82.00
  • Are you ready to cut down on your expenses and be more frugal

Yes no. Now that a few of the excellent businesses that I assumed would survive the worst problems ever sold and appears to continue to grow their business, Personally i think good about them at these very reasonable prices. Do shareholders still get a uncooked deal? I still type of believe that way, but by the end of your day, what’s important is return on equity.

If I am paying BPS, I care about ROE (return on collateral). If I there get an acceptable come back, I don’t caution too much what the bonuses are, and so long as Personally i think that the professionals are taking advisable risk. I think companies like Goldman, J.P. Morgan, and Wells Fargo have proven that they take only advisable risk. I really like how Dimon has maintained the business throughout this turmoil. The same goes with WFC and GS. Anyway, wow, that’s a bit longer than I expected. That is my opinion and not necessarily a suggestion just.

So, students should try a case study of regular boring examples and rules instead. Information impossible to assemble through reading study books shall be available through case studies. It familiarizes students with real life challenges and allows them to know its nuances. At the very least, these techniques to make boring subject matter interesting will rekindle your interest in the dull subject definitely. As Benjamin franklin said ‘An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest’. And anyway when you have to learn the topic then, why not make it more enjoyable?

Transactions Motive: People earn their income by the end of a certain time frame. So to meet up with the daily transactions throughout that time frame, people keep money. Precautionary Motive: To be able to safeguard against the near future uncertainties, people want to carry money. Speculative motive: To be able to earn more money from the utilization of money, people want to carry money. According to Mr. Keynes, People want to carry money to buy bonds. When people expect to get more return from the purchase of bonds, they make investments the money in the purchase of bonds. Government Expenditure: The federal government can spend cash either on consumption or on investment.
