8 June 2018 – New presentation “Trend Trading ASX Shares” added

I have been working with an ATAA colleague on some material to explain a Trend Trading strategy, on ASX shares. I have developed a slide presentation, to deliver to the U3A Manningham “Financial Health in Retirement” group last week, and in preparation to present to the Australian Shareholders Association (ASA) Seminar day in Melbourne in August 2018.

The Handouts and the Slides are now available to view in my Share Market Toolbox. Please note that anyone can view and download the Handouts (3 slides per page), and the set of Slides (2 per page) are only available for Toolbox Members.

I usually prepare another version of the slides in the “Speaker Notes” format. These are not yet ready for this slide set, but should be available in a few days time.

18 May 2018 – Most Weekly Analysis stuff completed…

As I reported in last week’s Weekly Analysis Email to Toolbox Members, I am at the ATAA Conference this weekend (Friday to Sunday), and some of the regular Weekly Analysis items might be delayed.

Well, the Weekly Analysis of the index is completed – Toolbox Members can see it here.

And the Weekly Watch List is completed for Premium Toolbox Members – who can see it here.

However, I have not yet been able to complete the weekly email to Toolbox Members. I am hoping to complete this and send it on Saturday night. My apologies for any inconvenience.

3 May 2018 – List of LIQUID STOCKS and WHICH STOCKS IN WHICH INDEX? are now completed for April

Every month, after the end of trading for the month, I update two key sets of information in the Share Market Toolbox:- Stock Liquidity, and Which Stocks in Which Index:

  1. Stock LIQUIDITY – Out of the 2000+ stocks on the Aussie market, only about 500 of them trade at least 50 times per day on average. Many traders and investors are not comfortable dealing in stocks that trade less then 50 times per day, because it would worsen the chance of selling the stock quickly if you need to (another measure is the total value traded per day, but not considered here). See more details and my updated list of Liquid Stocks.
  2. Which stocks are in which index? – Exactly which stocks are currently in which of the ten major Australian share market indexes? See my freshly updated list in the Toolbox.

16 Feb 2018 – Updated the IPO Performance web page

IPOs – Are they worth it?

I have been running a focused web page in my Share Market Toolbox on this topic for a few years now, ever since I realised that the chances of the average retail investor making money in an IPO are not great.

I have now added another stock to this list, to maintain a record of a number of stocks that have floated in recent years, and the resulting stock performance. You can see that web page here.

That web page now has 27 higher profile listings from the last few years – it is not a complete list, and it does include good performing stocks as well as poor performing ones.

The web page also provides an introduction to the topic of Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), including references to empirical studies, and authoritative research on the issues to be aware of.

The latest stock added to the top of the list is CropLogic Limited (CLI). See its share price performance here.
