I was right to chose BABA over VIPS two years ago.
But Now VIPS is so ridiculously cheap that I do believe it is definitely time to enter.

Trailing P/E 18.26
Forward P/E 1 10.36

Is so cheap for an hi tech company that grows that much:

Revenue (ttm) 9.65B
Revenue Per Share (ttm) 16.53
Quarterly Revenue Growth (yoy) 30.30%

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.

I can’t resist Google at F P/E=16: I just bought 3 GOOG shares April 28, 2010

I did it:

Bought 3 GOOG @ $528.6735 $-1,590.5205 Executed

I don’t care if Google was kicked out of China. Google still is a fast growing company, which is doing great now and which will do terrific if companies get back on advertising spending as the economy picks up.

Google is growing Revenue up 23% year on year, Earnings up 37%, has 26B cash, about 15% of its market cap.

Hate Ketchup, but love Heinz’s fat dividends! I’m buying 23 HNZ shares in 5 minutes December 29, 2009

Heinz yields 3.9 % dividends. I can hardly resist such juicy dividends, considering that, according to Yahoo finance:

  1. HNZ has a honest 16 P/E ratio.
  2. HNZ is supposed to grow its earnings. Next year P/E is supposed to go to 14. (more…)

I’m buying $1000 worth of Blackstone (BX) in 5 minutes November 19, 2009

Blackstone is a huge Private Equity fund.

Private Equity… or PIRATE EQUITY?

They manage more than $ 90 Billion. Hopefully they manage that sum well. The company earns managements fees even if the value of assets they manage gos down. Forward P/E ratio is a reasonable 15. Main reasons why I buy BX is the fact the middlemen usually gain even if things go badly, the fact that if things go well they gain even more. Last but not least:

  • Huge dividend yield: 8%
  • Grrowing dividend yield: last year was just 6%

Growing dividends in a sinking economy looks nice. I bet that Blackstone’s managing fees will go up if the Economy continues it current recovery.

It is surprising how stupid the Internet is sometimes. There is no way to find simple informations, like basic data for stocks traded on itnternational markets.

not easy to figure out data from ideograms

not easy to figure out data from ideograms

I don’t want much, just a place where I can find P/E ratio, dividends, debts earning growth and sales growth for companies traded all over the World.

So far there is no such website. Google finanace doesn’t give decent data outside USA. On yahoo finance you canfind something only if you start digging into places like yahoo. fr yahoo.it yahoo.es or yahoo.de, but you need some understanding of foreign languages. The real disaster is when you need data about Japaneese, Russian or Chinese comanies. Then you’re lost into ideograms with no hope of understanding. Anyway yahoo finance usually has very little data even on its internatrional portals.

The best place I found so far is msn . I could find some data on msn.es, msn.fr … and so on. At least I could spot p/e and dividends. The problem of ideograms is still there, but I don’t think there is anything better than msn available

I sold 70 Vance Info (VIT) shares today: they’re 40% up since I bought them in May 2008 June 30, 2009

VanceInfo Technologies is a Chinese software house.

A year ago I bought VIT because it was Chinese largest software house. I considered that fact as a great advantage over Indian software houses, which ended up losing more than half of their value in a year . Maybe I was right (link). Maybe I was just lucky to hit a well managed software house.

Why do I have an hard time suggesting a book for a novice trader? June 25, 2009

Posted by deminvest in investment, investment strategies, Single stocks, stock I own, stocks.

Yesterday Tjey, one of my 3 or 4 readers,  asked me: “[…] if you suggest book for novice trader what book would suggest to read and why”

First reason why It is hard to me to suggest such a book is simple: I never read a book about trading. I’m actually not a trader. All I do is:

  • read finance.yahoo.com everyday,
  • check my portfolio loaded on finance.google.com which gives news about shares I own,
  • read articles about Economics in regular newspapers
  • distrust financial gurus, economists, politicians, central banks, CEOs, bloggers, funds, whoever charges commissions, myself
  • think with my own head, knowing there great chances I’m wrong
  • buy $ 1000 worth of stocks every month and (more…)

Cloud computing. One more battlegroung for Google and Microsoft

Cloud computing. One more battlegroung for Google and Microsoft

Google, Amazon, IBM and Ebay will probably have advantages in a “Cloud Economics” scenario.

Microsoft and maybe Apple could be damaged.
