Year of the Cock Up

Jaques Le Naif
| Mon 27 Feb 2017
Spy V Spy

In the last quarter prior to this Chinese New Year the US Dow Jones printed 20K for the first time.

Although less significant than the SPX:500 2K [see Party Cake rooloose.com] this event is in sync with a probable Japanese NIKKEI 225 (20K) and another (2) handle event on the US Debt Clock at 20 trillion.
These charts put us in the picture: The world had a very bad fright in the GFC, which required certain action, but I for one have underestimated how willing Central Banks have been to jump into the fray. Some have even been keen buyers of Stocks; I guess to have a first mover advantage and to capture Future Growth and Dividends. All this discounting the future smacks of some kind of 'Future Crime'. The sort of thing that Phd`s and their Super Computers come up with...
Now the world seems like a sort of 'Bizzaro World', but this has probably always been the norm and should be enjoyed. Play the wisdom of 'Johnny Rotten'; Public Image Limited - Rise.

Happy Xmas & 2017

Hope for the Future

Found this animation at url=rwgrayprojects.com. I thought it had a bit of a Christmas look... So I reworked it for 2017.

The controls do back / forward and the speed (Dwell) when ANiM is running. Click HERE to open the TEMPLATE in a new window. Or Download ANiM.zip (TEMPLATE only no images)
If you are running this in your mobile phone you will see that despite animating 60 images it is not a burden. The secret is that code is a string and that string should not be dependant on any image load or external resource. A good string is unlikely to throw any errors! The roo.js is sandboxed at the end of the file and will not contaminate anything; if the ANiM is left ON; it will stop when the stack handle gets to a modest 888 (to save phone battery) - reload to continue... You now have control of space and time - sick!

Melbourne Cup tragics Sheikh Mohammed’s Godolphin team and racehorse owner Lloyd Williams are at it again this year with multiple runners. I find it very hard to tip outside the favorites but if I had to pick an outsider to show I would go for No.10 Gallante (2) J: Blake Shinn T: ROBERT HICKMOTT.
Who Can Win: Last years import No.6 Hartnell (12) J: JMac. T: JOHN O'SHEA. see (?) or No.20 Oceanographer (11) J: Chad Schofield T: CHARLIE APPLEBY (GB) which has had a JB (Bart) Cummings style preparation.

HARTNELL the new
Flash?

When I see the galloping action of racehorse HARTNELL I think I am looking at old film of the Red Flash (Phar Lap / Big Red). Or is it just the way he holds his head?


The $3m 2016 W.S. COX Plate is due to be the next race start for HARTNELL. For more on The COX plate: youtube.com 2016 COX Plate

BOOST

Jaques Le Naif
| Mon 13 Jun 2016

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...

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!
