I started getting interested in this weird Japanese holding when they bought ARM, owners of the cpu technology which in the heart of most smartphones and pads.
Now they also bough Boston Dynamics, a crazy robotics company that likes to ill treat walking robots:

Not sure wether the crazy Masayoshi Son is trying to build a funny collection or he has something in mind.

I am basically trying to  invest in a possibly crazy genius.
P/E di 11.57 is reasonably priced for a possible technology player.
Apparently on the year ending March 2017 softbank had flat revenue growth, but healthy earnings growth.

My crazy Trump play? Russian small caps ETF RSXJ November 9, 2016

Trump will probably stop sanctions to Russia. Europe will follow.
Time to invest in the Eastern Superpower.
My play is on small caps, because anything else in Russia is an oil investment.
Too bad I won’t get dividends on that stuff.

Taking the safer risky bet: I’m buying ALIBABA (BABA) rather than Vips April 30, 2015

I feel a dangerous attraction: I like to buy recent IPOs below the IPO price.

It boosts my ego: ‘Hey, I am smarter then the “HIPE” guys!”

If flattens my laziness: “They had to go through all the uncomfortability of signing an IPO, then had to wait. Blah I do it now and at a better price with a simple click”.

Of course I know all that is wrong. I am likely to chose the companies that have lost momentum. Let’s say I was lucky with Facebook, so I am going for ALIBABA now.

High School Party

It’s like a rich kid in high school who discovered he wasn’t invited to a party, so he threw a better party and no one came.

Facebook’s edge over Google:

  • data on which Google is built ( web sites all over the World) is available to Facebook and to anyone able to build a spider.
  • data available to Facebook is locked.

Google’s edge over Facebook:

  1. much better technology
  2. much better mobile strategy
  3. much richer
  4. ads based on what you are searching for are much better than ads based on who you are. (more…)

What are “top line” and “bottom line” for companies and stocks? April 27, 2012

What do bottom-line and top-line mean for stocks and companies?

The answer is simple: “TOP-LINE” means REVENUES and “BOTTOM-LINE” means EARNINGS: this graph below is a good and clear example:

Top line shows revenue and bottom line shows earningns for EBIX

Top line shows revenue and bottom line shows earningns for EBIX

The graph also helps me to understand why Revenue is called TOP LINE and Earnings BOTTOM LINE:

Since Earnings = Revenue – Expenses, then Earnings are smaller (less dollars) than Revenues. On a graph showing dollars over time, Revenues will always be the top line and Earnings the bottom line.

Samsung is Apple’s only serious competitor

I bought 8 SSU (Samsung) shares at EUR 194,95 each. I did that because:

  • I am buying a Samsung TV.
  • The big spenders I know are either buying Samsung or Apple smartphones
  • Samsung invests hugely in Research and developement
  • Samsung stock is fairly priced
