acquisitor: This is a lovely multi bagger for me. There is a lot to be said about businesses that where the executive have a significant stake. After what happened at Datamonitor, could this recent rise in the share price be a precursor to a bid by Danson for the remaining 10% he doesn't own? Or a bid for the company?

littleredrooster: $100bn European listing and the wrong envelopes were dispatched to shareholders. hTTps://www.ft.com/content/daa5ddc2-942d-11e9-b7ea-60e35ef678d2 South Africa’s Naspers postpones planned $100bn European listing Administrative error forces group to delay Dutch move until September Joseph Cotterill in Johannesburg June 21, 2019 South Africa’s Naspers delayed its planned $100bn European listing of global internet assets, which includes a large stake in China’s Tencent, after the wrong envelopes were dispatched to shareholders. Johannesburg-listed Naspers said on Friday that it would postpone listing what is likely to be Europe’s biggest consumer internet group until September, following the administrative error by an external service provider. The listing on the Euronext Amsterdam, a landmark in the rise of Africa’s most valuable listed company as a global investor, was originally scheduled for July 17. Naspers, which also announced results for the year ending in March on Friday, said that the outside company mixed up names and addresses on circulars sent to shareholders ahead of a meeting this month to consider the listing. “This could in some cases lead to confusion” and the company has delayed the meeting to August “so as to allow all shareholders equal opportunity to fully consider the circular and resolution,” Naspers said. The listing is aimed at reducing a significant discount in Naspers’ share price that is being driven by the sheer size of its investment in Tencent, which it has held since 2001. The company’s 31 per cent stake in the Chinese gaming giant — of which it sold a portion last year — has pushed its value to about a quarter of the Johannesburg stock market. South African investors have been forced to sell the stock to cut down on concentration risk as a result. Naspers plans to retain about 75 per cent of the vehicle, which has been named Prosus, the company said on Friday. It will also include assets such as Russia’s mail.ru and India’s Swiggy as well as internet classifieds. The free float of about 25 per cent will be offered to shareholders and is also likely to be snapped up by European investors as the company will enter major stock indices. Prosus will have a secondary listing in Johannesburg. Naspers increased trading profits by 10 per cent to $3.3bn during the 12 months ending in March, a year in which it spun off its African pay-TV arm, MultiChoice, in Johannesburg. “Naspers enters the 2020 financial year as a fundamentally different group, with virtually all revenues now generated from online activities, and is well positioned as a global consumer internet group,” the company said. The group invested more than $3bn during the period as it expanded segments including classifieds, food delivery and payments. Naspers reported $6.3bn in cash after it reduced its Tencent stake for the first time ever last year, and sold a stake in India’s Flipkart.

littleredrooster: hTTps://techcrunch.com/2018/09/04/amazon-strikes-1-trillion-market-cap-4-weeks-after-apple-did-the-same/ Amazon strikes $1 trillion market cap, 4 weeks after Apple did the same TechCrunch - 7 hours ago Amazon just joined the exclusive $1 trillion club (briefly). The e-commerce behemoth jumped above a trillion dollar market cap on Tuesday during intraday trading. Its share price hit an all-time high of $2,050.27 earlier this morning bringing its value above the massive, yet meaningless, milestone. The share price is bouncing around and is currently sitting a few million below the number but the share price will inevitably rest above the number soon enough. Amazon, founded in 1994 with the lofty ambitions of taking on Borders and Barnes and Noble, has completely rewritten the rules of retail in the past couple decades as it has aggressively moved to build a massive logistics engine to power all sorts of e-commerce needs for a consumer base emboldened by the shift to mobile. This news is all the more notable because it follows Apple’s ascent to the same milestone just a few weeks ago. The two tech behemoths may have been able to find the same value to shareholders, but while Apple has relied on its ever-evolving consumer hardware business and line of services to support its devices, Amazon has locked onto the country’s capitalistic infrastructure both in moving atoms as it ships billions of items worldwide and bits with its AWS platform. While Apple’s market cap growth over the past year has been near a staggering 40 percent, Amazon has been even more of a value rocket ship. As of Tuesday, its market cap represented nearly 110 percent year-over-year growth. Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos is currently estimated to be worth around $166 billion, which is about $70 billion north of Bill Gates’s worth in the #2 wealth position, so he’s doing alright I guess. https://money.cnn.com/2018/09/04/technology/amazon-1-trillion/index.html

Downloading and transferring huge volumes of video between workstations is also expensive, slow and frustrating. Working in the cloud on just the video content you need dramatically saves time and boosts productivity. Plus the nature of working in the cloud means that media teams can operate simultaneously on the same workflows and projects in real time. So as you can see, the cloud provides many huge benefits to organizations that manage video content and Blackbird is perfectly placed to meet those needs."

littleredrooster: Naspers paid $34 million for its current stake .. that is now worth about $170 billion hxxp://www.foxbusiness.com/features/2017/11/29/after-34-million-investment-in-tencent-africas-naspers-is-one-worlds-most-valuable.html After $34 Million Investment in Tencent, Africa's Naspers Is One of World's Most Valuable By Alexandra Wexler Published November 29, 2017 JOHANNESBURG – Africa's most valuable company is now suddenly one of the world's most valuable companies, too. On Wednesday, Naspers Ltd. -- a media and internet firm little known outside South Africa and Silicon Valley -- reported a surge in half-year earnings, bolstered by its 33.3% stake in Chinese internet giant Tencent Holdings Ltd. The performance sent shares up 0.8%, bringing its gains over the last year to 84%. That has suddenly made it the world's 65th largest listed company by market value among the Stoxx Global 3000 index. Last year, it wasn't close to breaking into the top 100, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis. The stock market gains have been driven almost entirely by Tencent's own soaring share price. Back in 2001, Naspers paid $34 million for its current stake. Based on Tencent's current market capitalization, that is now worth about $170 billion. Investors have baked in a discount for Naspers shares, though, because of a dividend-withholding tax that would kick in should it ever sell out. Naspers market cap ended Wednesday at about $121 billion. Apart from Tencent, Naspers holds stakes in a host of other portfolio companies, including Mail.ru Group, a Russian internet company that runs two of the country's three biggest social networks, Delivery Hero, a food delivery company in Germany, and Flipkart, India's biggest e-commerce site. "The market is actually paying you to take on all these other great assets," said Philip Short, an analyst at Old Mutual Equities, in Cape Town. Naspers said net profit for the six months ended Sept. 30 rose 98% to $1.1 billion, while revenue rose 5% to $3.1 billion. That came from dividends it receives from its Tencent Holdings and profits at its e-commerce businesses, especially its global digital classified businesses. Its holdings in Tencent also gives Naspers an almost-unrivaled position as what has become essentially a silent partnership in some of the tech world's splashiest recent investments. Earlier this year, Tencent bought a 5% stake in Tesla Inc. and a 12% stake in Snap Inc. Last year, it bought Finland's Supercell, maker of the "Clash of Clans" mobile game franchise. Last year, Naspers opened a venture-capital outfit in Silicon Valley to be closer to the tech-innovation hub. Recently, the company has been quietly taking on much bigger rivals. The company launched a streaming service called ShowMax across Africa in 2015, just ahead of Netflix Inc. Naspers is also going toe to toe with Craigslist Inc. in the U.S., with a mobile app called LetGo.

littleredrooster: companies with high capital spending tend to underperform http://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/NASDAQ/AMZN/share-news/New-Amazon-Headquarters-Should-Alarm-WSJ/75624748 New Amazon Headquarters Should Alarm -- WSJ 12/09/2017 8:02am Dow Jones News By James Mackintosh This article is being republished as part of our daily reproduction of WSJ.com articles that also appeared in the U.S. print edition of The Wall Street Journal (September 12, 2017). The list of warning signals for shareholders includes diversification into new industries, changes of business model, massive hiring programs, unfettered CEO power, distracted management, and high capital spending. But top of the list for many is the construction of a new headquarters. Hubris, meet Amazon.com. Amazon has achieved extraordinary feats, most notably in speed of expansion. It hired more than 30,000 people in the last quarter alone, and in the past three years has tripled its head count to 382,400. It appears to have managed this without a hitch, even as it spent billions of dollars on Hollywood productions, launched a hit gadget and ramped up its spending on research and development. Investors are betting that CEO Jeff Bezos will keep his magic touch, and that money plowed into expansion today represents big profits to be made some time in the future. History and human nature are against Mr. Bezos -- and may eventually prove a headwind for much of the rest of the market too. The lesson from the long term is that companies with high capital spending tend to underperform. Kenneth French, a professor at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, calculates that shares in the 30% of U.S. companies with the lowest investment returned six times as much as those with the highest investment since 1963. Human nature provides a story to back up the findings. CEOs like to expand (not coincidentally, CEOs of bigger companies earn more), like to chase new ideas (putting them on the front of popular magazines) and like to do what shareholders want (boosting the value of their stock options, at least in the short run). The three come together when a company or sector is in vogue, as shareholders give it cheap capital and cheer on plans for growth. Often it turns out that the premise for the expansion was mistaken, and much capital spending is wasted. Remember peak oil, the race to dig new mines to satisfy forecasts of endless emerging-market growth, or the vast overinvestment in shipping to prepare for global trade's inevitable expansion? Those early in the expansion are right to invest, but as more capital is deployed it can drive down prices and destroy the very opportunity shareholders hoped to exploit. Other times CEOs just fritter the money away, as in the dot-com bubble. If you exercise little control over management and actively encourage them to spend money as quickly as possible, you shouldn't be surprised if much of it is wasted. The rise and rise of Amazon has come as the patterns of the past seem to have been suspended. Since the start of 2009 the runaway success of big tech stocks and big dividend payers have helped companies with the most and least investment do well, while middling companies underperformed. Calculations by Goldman Sachs' chief U.S. equity strategist David Kostin suggest shareholders have shifted again in the past 18 months, rewarding capital spending with bigger share-price gains than for dividends and share buybacks. If it continues, CEOs will get the message and corporate investment will pick up. Amazon shareholders might argue that the company won't fall victim to misplaced capital spending because it is exploiting disruptive technology, investing in growth and spending heavily on R&D. If the past is any indication, these offer up only a glimmer of a hope. History offers plenty of examples of disruptive technologies leading to investment booms, but those caught up in the spending spree usually lose out horribly. The British "railway mania" of the 1840s is a classic example: money poured in from excited shareholders, railroad companies found ways to spend it and were rewarded with ever-higher share prices, until investors discovered just how much of the capital had been wasted. The winners were the broader economy and those who entered early or sold out in time. But much capital had to be written down as profits were competed away or overestimated. Investing in growth is more plausible. Academics have shown that higher R&D spending on average is followed by better stock performance than for companies with lower R&D spending. For this to justify further increases in Amazon's stock price means assuming investors are once again underestimating the future profits from its R&D spending. Given how hard it is even to work out how much the company is spending on R&D -- it is lumped in with "technology and content," where $5.5 billion was spent in total in the second quarter -- it's impossible to come up with a firm view of how well it is spent, or what profits might result. The share price might well be underestimating future products, but might equally be extrapolating the past successes of the web-hosting division or the voice-controlled Alexa device to unknown future products. Amazon expects to hire another 50,000 staff earning on average more than $100,000 a year at its second HQ over a decade and a half, adding $5 billion a year of pay to the more than $5 billion capital cost of "HQ2." Amazon shareholders betting on it bucking history have to hope that by the time HQ2 is completed the company has both grown enough to justify its vast scale and found a way to profit from all its capital and R&D spending.

littleredrooster: Amazon Web Services alone making almost 90% of operating profit in the first quarter http://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/NASDAQ/WFM/share-news/Blind-Faith-in-Bezos-May-Sting-Investors-WSJ/75099223 Blind Faith in Bezos May Sting Investors -- WSJ 23/06/2017 8:02am Dow Jones News By James Mackintosh This article is being republished as part of our daily reproduction of WSJ.com articles that also appeared in the US print edition of The Wall Street Journal (June 23, 2017). Investors think Jeff Bezos has the magic touch. Few companies other than Amazon.com Inc. could announce a nearly $14 billion takeover of a mature firm, give no details of why they are buying the very business model they're trying to disrupt, and have their market value rise by more than the takeover price. Since Amazon said last week that it would buy upscale grocery chain Whole Foods Market Inc., multiple theories have circulated about what it is up to. Some think it is about convenience shopping. Some that it is about customer data. Some suggest logistics, the grocery supply chain, or an extra distribution channel for the company's growing range of own-brand electronics. Still others think Amazon hasn't really got a strategy yet. What all seem to agree on is that Amazon will make it work, and other grocers should be cowering in the their freezer cases. Amazon doesn't inspire the near-religious fervor found among Apple's true believers, but the online-shopping-to-movie-studio conglomerate does depend on faith, hope and charity. Faith in Mr. Bezos's inventiveness provides the essential underpinning for Amazon shares, while investors hope that he doesn't really think of the company as a charity to finance wacky new ideas. Amazon -- like Google and Facebook -- has a successful core business, pays little heed to shareholders and plows its spare cash back into expansion and research and development rather than dividends. In the 20 years since it listed, it has made a total of $5.7 billion in net income, more than half of that in the past two years. It has spent $64 billion on R&D in the same period, including $4.8 billion in the first quarter alone. Mr. Bezos set out his principles in 1997. "We will continue to make investment decisions in light of long-term market leadership considerations rather than short-term profitability considerations or short-term Wall Street reactions," he told shareholders. Investors have bought in to the idea that by not maximizing profit in the short term, Amazon can maximize profit in the long term -- even if, 20 years later, the long term still hasn't arrived. At most listed companies, the exact opposite is true, with management under constant pressure to boost dividends and buybacks. "It's become easier to invest as a private company than as a public company," says James Anderson, a partner at Edinburgh-based Baillie Gifford & Co., whose biggest holding is Amazon. "There's a small number of companies that appears permitted to do this, and it's very difficult for most other public companies." Holding shares in Amazon requires the belief that Mr. Bezos will find enough good investments to offset the mistakes -- such as cash Amazon put into Pets.com, the epitome of badly-thought-through dot-com bubble catastrophes. So far, just one of his successes would cover a lot of mistakes, with Amazon Web Services alone making almost 90% of operating profit in the first quarter. Investors also need to believe that eventually Mr. Bezos will start paying out some of the cash. The value of a company ultimately comes from future dividends -- and Amazon has yet to pay a cent. The long-term danger is that instead of paying dividends, the cash is wasted. History is littered with examples of chief executives indulged by shareholders who become so enamored of their own brilliance that they fritter away shareholder money on wasteful expansion. So far, the founders of the big tech stocks have mostly made good decisions, and while they aren't exactly humble, hubris isn't apparent either. But their secrecy -- on display again with the lack of explanation of the Whole Foods deal -- shows a degree of contempt for investors. The short-term danger doesn't involve Amazon, but its shareholders. Investors seem to have suspended disbelief. However brilliant Mr. Bezos is, it is extraordinary that he is able to launch a big takeover without offering any strategic or financial rationale. The same glass-half-full attitude was behind shareholder acceptance of nonvoting shares in Snap Inc.'s initial public offering. When doubt returns, as it always does, Amazon shares will suffer. In many ways, Amazon is an exemplar for investors. In most companies, shareholders should encourage more R&D spending, worry less about quarterly targets and tell managers to focus on the business, not the share price. In Amazon's case, the willingness to accept no explanation at all for a $13.7 billion purchase suggests faith has run too far.
