quepassa: The most fantastic and readable article (p. 26-34)in the current June edition of Fortune Magazine. Amazon has gone from position 492 in year 2002 in Fortune's ranking of Top 500 companies by revenues to position number 8 this year. The article talks amongst other things about Amazon's recent purchase of Whole Foods. I just love the sub-title to the article which says it all: " What does the e-commerce titan want from its surprise purchase of Whole Foods? Not much- JUST TOTAL RETAIL DOMINATION" !!! The article mentions how if you get purchasers to start buying daily essentials of food and household items from you, that they linger in the "virtual" aisles and buy other goods. The article talks about the enormous Traction of Amazon Prime and how when customers sign up (which is a stunning service and worth every penny) they just keep on coming back for more " Once you're a prime customer, you don't go anywhere else". It is mind-boggling and hard to believe that " More than 40 cents of every dollar consumers spend on the Internet already go to Amazon - an astonishing sum" The article continues elsewhere that " Other Industries at risk of Getting Amazoned .......Apparel. Banking. Furniture. Event tickets. Delivery". What an astonishing company. Can Amazon overtake Walmart at no.1 eventually with $500 billion in revenues? In my opinion this can and will happen sooner than one might imagine. Amazon still has a long, long, long way to run......." What does the e-commerce titan want from its surpise purchase of Whole Foods? Not much- JUST TOTAL RETAIL DOMINATION" Maybe Mr. Anderson needs to find a clever way of allowing ScoMo's portfolio to be invested in more than 10% of a single stock because Amazon still has enormous growth potential which will further drive its share price. But well done to ScoMo for being an early investor in Jeff Bezos. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
quepassa: Market cap of Tesla surges to $48billion and is now higher capitalised than Ford at $45billion. Tesla Share price up 20% so far this year from $250 to $300. As at end Feb, Tesla was ScoMo's 3rd largest holding at 6.3% of portfolio. - Maybe higher by now/April. QP
galeforce1: Interesting to see that SMT have been releasing so many shares from treasury. I'd guess this is to meet demand from savvy fund managers who are picking up stock because they think SMT will become a FTSE 100 company on December 1st. I think it is currently 93rd and Travis Perkins likely to be demoted as it's 108. If that happens there will be automatic buying by trackers, ETFs etc., and this will will push up the share price. But can the premium over NAV, already 3% when I last looked, sensibly go any higher? Is anyone worried about the big holding in Tesla?
galeforce1: It's all very well saying that we can now make new trading relationships with India, Latin America, Russia, China, Asia, etc, but the sad reality is that we sell almost nothing to India or China. That's because we have very little to sell. Being part of the EU doesn't seem to have stopped Germany, France and Italy building an enormous export trade to India and China. Why should anyone think that being outside the EU is suddenly going to improve the UK's export performance? It's just nonsense. The big reason for continuing to hold SMT is that it's follows what I call the 'Edinburgh world view' - which is that the UK economy is fundamentally very weak and that the sensible place to invest is outside the UK. I think I'm right in saying that less than 10% of the £3.5bn-odd in this trust is invested in the UK. The GBP is likely to keep on falling. SMT's GBP share price should continue to benefit from this.
quepassa: Illumina tanked yesterday on a warning from profits in Europe. The rest of the global sales for Illumina look fine. The 25% slide in share price on the back of this news is vastly over-done in my opinion. I fully expect Illumina to claw back most of recent losses in short order just as Amazon and Tesla rapidly did after Jan/Feb slump. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
quepassa: My one observation is that their Net Asset Value announcement this morning was at 251p per share. At 1.45pm today the share price is 235p. That is a massive 16p discount to NAV being almost 6.5%. As recently as December the share price was at a Premium to NAV of a couple of percent. Because of the global sell-off today, the NAV tomorrow may perhaps be a guesstimate of 3% lower which would mean a reduction in NAV from today's 251p to 244p. It does still seem an unusually large discount to NAV by recent historical standards. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
quepassa: Yes. Good post. But surely the point is that there is not just one type of investor. there are many different types of investor . And indeed many different investment strategies. Over just 12 months, an investment in Amazon has gone up more than 100% against a flat market. That's fantastic performance. Over 3 years, by 200% Over 7 years, by 1,200% Since flotation in 1997 at $1.50 per share by almost 450 times (45,000%) to the current share price of $670. Personally, I think that is a great way to make money as an investor. That's one place where I may politely beg to differ in my point of view to yours. I do think it's the way to make money as an investor. But each to his own. And horses for courses. Using classical pe measurements/ratios and traditional dividend metrics do not in my experience sit comfortably alongside new-age tech stocks. What is quite observable, is that a company with regular pe ratios and paying a dividend would not have achieved this type of growth over the last few years. Of course, not all tech stock achieve this and many fall by the wayside. But the ones which become dominant in their chosen sectors display massive outperformance and give huge investor returns. Let's hope that ScoMo keep on picking the right ones. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
topvest: Amazon is a truly great company, that there is no doubt. However, it doesn't pay a dividend and doesn't make good profits so what is the point for investors, other than riding a speculative's share price will crash at some point as will a lot of the ridiculously priced US tech giants that are here today, gone tomorrow. At that point (whenever it comes) Scottish Mortgage will get hammered.
quepassa: The FT is full of stories and praise for Amazon today whose share price has more than doubled this year. Clearly this has helped the strong performance of ScoMo this year. Well done. A great pick. ScoMo's top ten holdings are impressive reading making up more than 50% of the fund. Reprising the Amazon theme however, today's FT Lex column waxes lyrical that theoretically, using Walmart and IBM metrics, the Amazon $650 share price may grow to $2,600 over time. Let's hope so. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
quepassa: Mustn't forget that ScoMo's second largest shareholding is Spain's Inditex - the abbreviation of Industria de Diseno Textil SA. - Best known for fast-fashion group, Zara. Inditex are up 45.5% Year to date and looking strong. ScoMo's third largest shareholding is Illumina Inc. They peaked in Summer at $240 and then took a major tumble in the summer sell-off to $140 towards the end of October. Since October, the share price of Illumina has raced forward over the last 4/5 weeks by some 33% to $187. The US$ strength against most currencies including sterling continues to favour ScoMo's 45% portfolio holdings in North American stocks. If you want a fund cautiously invested in 3% of everything, ScoMo is not right for you. If you want true conviction-investing with an emphasis on exceptional growth companies especially in internet/emerging/pioneer industries, ScoMo is in my opinion outstanding. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
