BOOST

Jaques Le Naif

Have you ever wondered what your Public Company Board is up to these days... Well the chances are BOOST! BOOST their compensation (remuneration).


Public Company Boards seem to be exploiting the low interest rate environment. Stock, Performance Rights and Option schemes are ever more popular.
One version where New Pari Passu Shares (Ex Options) are routinely crossed into a share buyback even has its own name 'The new Triangle Trade'.

Luckily for us the Public; Warrant Buffett has been commenting on the pointy end of the problem and arguing with companies that have been excluding this expense from their income statements.

He singles out this one very real expense that executives love to ignore...

Stock-based compensation is the most egregious example. Stock-based compensation is compensation, isn’t it?

The very name says it all: ‘compensation.’ If compensation isn’t an expense, what is it? And, if real and recurring expenses don’t belong in the calculation of earnings, where in the world do they belong?

This Alice-in-Wonderland outcome occurs because existing accounting principles ignore the cost of stock options when earnings are being calculated, even though options are a huge and increasing expense at a great many corporations. In effect, accounting principles offer management a choice: Pay employees in one form and count the cost, or pay them in another form and ignore the cost.

Party Cake - 2

At the end of August 2014; I wrote 'U.S. SPX500 Cracks 2K'. Well not that much has changed as the venerable SPX (U.S. stocks S&P 500) is still just above 2,000.


I saw a cluster of World Index(s) at or near the '2' handle and wrote this:-

The number ‘2’ is the first and only even prime number and as such is integral to the shape of all things. Remember, “the way up is the same as the way down.” Lets examine some other world stock index charts at or about the ‘2’ lvl.

Here are all the Charts again...

(China: Shanghai A) Click for larger image in new tab / window

(Hong Kong: Hang Seng index) Click for larger image in new tab / window

(India: SENEX 30) Click for larger image in new tab / window

(Korea: Kospi index) Click for larger image in new tab / window

The big question is Kimble Charting: Do Long-Term Bull Markets Usually Start From Here?

Sod's law dictates that if something can go wrong it probably will. Guess what - the rooloose.com Web Site, Archive and Content Management System was all pulled without trace!

The New look site is intended to be modular (Lite) and to suit most modern devices and phones.

It is intended that the Archive will be rebuilt over time.

Roo Apps can be found / opened via the Green Button in the nav bar.

Hope for the Future

At this time of year everything looks like a Xmas Tree.

The picture, above, is known as the Yanghui Triangle it is the oldest known depiction of what is now called Pascal's Triangle.


(So I made my own Xmas Tree) Click image to open App. in new tab / window


You can decorate the tree by cycling through Modulus 2 to 13. The number clusters make patterns; that should amuse you for five minutes!
