How to Invest in Commodities like Platinum, Silver, Copper, Lead and Zinc!

Investors are often looking for alternative asset classes to invest their savings, other than the traditional options available to them like Mutual Funds, Insurance, LIC Schemes and Bank Fixed Deposits. The recent run away rally in Gold and craze for Gold in India and China is pointing to the fact that Investor’s trust in paper currencies and financial assets is at all time low. Investors believe that Stock markets are subject to manipulation and Currencies are subject to devaluation and rightly so. There is a substantial pent up desire to invest in newer asset class like commodities. Investors are lapping up precious metals like Gold Jewellery and Silver bars and coins from both hands. But because of this herd run, Gold is at all time high and Silver has become highly volatile, subject to sky high prices and sudden pullbacks. So are there any other commodity options to invest and how can Retail Investor benefit from them?

Glodyne Technoserve: Destruction of Shareholder Value!

In response to my post on Zylog Systems here, I got a few comments to write about Glodyne Technoserve as well. Glodyne is not on my radar, hence I had a fresh look at charts and financials for this firm. Looking at the charts for Glodyne truly filled my heart with pangs of sadness, as this momentous crash has the footprints of thousands of investors trapped in the debris.

This is the same story for folks trapped in firms like Tulip, 3i Infotech etc. So a common theme across midcap IT firms in last 2 years, was to take huge debt and buy firms abroad at lofty valuations. When these arcane diverse businesses did not add up to a meaningful large picture, it created tremendous destruction of shareholder value. The process was to over-leverage the firm by taking up debt and as the interest rates moved up due to money supply tightening in past 2 years, these firms are now unable to pay debt, or to pay salaries on time and hence these erstwhile IT midcap names are reduced to 100-200 crore microcap stature.

Pl look at Glodyne chart below:

Tara Jewels IPO!

At StockFundoo, we are never super-excited about IPOs. This is because investors in most of the recent IPOs are in deep red and have lost significant money. Please see our post on recent IPOs here

From this post:
Out of the last twenty large/mid-sized IPO listing, only seven are in profit and thirteen stocks are in losses, six of which have lost more than 80% of their listing price. This phenomena is going on from quite some time, where promoters of companies go for IPOs listing at exorbitant prices and cash on quickly, thus leave investors holding worthless stocks which are down by 80% to 90%. The most common saying about IPO is rightly so: It's Probably Overpriced.

Lets look at available data for Tara Jewels IPO, which opens tomorrow 21st Nov:

Short term Bottom on Zylog Systems!

We wrote about Zylog Systems few days back here, on how stock was crashing to Lower circuit on daily basis, on the back of possible Bear Cartel and Rumor mongering. Today, there is a possibility of short term bottom on this scrip, with huge volumes of trading getting reported and stock moving 4% up in intra-day trade. As market is still not closed for the day, we don't know if this is for real, but Zylog is worth a close watch from today onwards for a possible short term revival.

Please see the volumes reported in this scrip:

Are Commodities in Bear Grip? Not Really!

Sometimes I think financial analysts are really hired just for showing lot of worry and concern on TV every morning. Analysts world-over are worried about Commodity prices from 2011 onwards, citing recession in Europe, in USA and in China, which is a great guzzler of commodities like Copper. However, unlike 2008, where commodity markets fell off the cliff in just a few months, last two years of slowdown has almost done nothing to ease commodity prices. This is despite everyone being very bearish on commodities and commodity stocks. We see TV anchors talking about great impending slowdown in commodities from past two years on a daily basis. But is it really this bad, or this is another case of everyone being bearish, except the one who matters - Mr. Market. We need to look at data and figure out if commodity prices are indeed softening or this is just a consolidation phase for the next up-leg in commodity markets.

Guide to Dividend Investing: How to Profit from Rich Dividend Paying Stocks!

Dividend is your share of the annual or quarterly profits that a company has declared over a period of time. Dividends are regular payments made by companies to their shareholders and are considered tax-free in the hand of shareholders in India. When you purchase stocks for investment and are shareholder of a given company, the company can either pay part of their annual profits to you in the form of regular dividends, or the profits can be reinvested in the company’s business. Typically, it is seen that companies willing to share their profits with their shareholders do well over a period of time, as their stock gets good visibility among investors and is traded at good premium over other stocks.

Why High Frequency Trading (HFT) is not so profitable anymore!

High Frequency Trading, or popularly known as HFT, is a set of trading algorithms which aim to profit by lightning fast trade executions in electronic trading markets. More than 30% of currency trading in world markets and about 90% of stock trading in exchanges like NASDAQ is carried out by computers using HFT algorithms. These HFT algorithms buy and sell shares rapidly, typically in milliseconds or less, and their total share holding period is fraction of a second. Unlike the typical investor, which buys and holds the stock for a few months or so, HFT algorithms average stock-holding period is just about 11 seconds! And how do they make money in 11 seconds, let’s have a look:
