In Episode 46 of Magic Markets, The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla take a break from trading-related concepts to talk about another critical part of the financial markets ecosystem: mergers and acquisitions.

Magic Markets #41: Commodity Economy
The commodity economy is playing out in front of our very eyes, not just in South Africa but in other important African jurisdictions as well. The obvious impact is on mining companies themselves, but there are other South African companies that have benefitted along the way, like MTN. In an inflationary environment where Fed Chair Jerome Powell seems quite comfortable with letting durables inflation run, commodity-related stocks are making a strong case for inclusion in our portfolios. Magic Markets is your invitation to join The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla as they discuss the markets, their portfolios and all things finance-related.

Magic Markets #36: Overweight Food
The quick-service restaurant (QSR) sector has been a clear winner globally under lockdown conditions. When you're worried about catching a virus, a pizza served to your car window is more appealing than a sit-down restaurant. Share prices of companies like Chipotle and Domino's have increased sharply. However, the threat of food delivery apps cannot be ignored, as the value chain in this industry is far from settled. In episode 36 of Magic Markets, hosts The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla (Moe-Knows) complain about their waistlines while commenting on the restaurant sector and the competitive realities in that space. It's a fun episode with plenty to learn about this important market.

Magic Markets #35: Sell-offs and Sell-outs
There were some big moves in the market this week, including an interesting situation where both equities and yields dropped in the US. That's an unusual combination and is one of the talking points in Episode 35 of Magic Markets. Hosts The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla (Moe-Knows) also discuss technical levels and sentiment around Bitcoin, as well as thoughts around knowing when to sell winners. But first, the focus is on the new Satrix Inclusion and Diversity ETF, which supposedly looks at ESG metrics but still manages to include the likes of Sasol and British American Tobacco among the top holdings. Fiercely independent and packed with market insights, Magic Markets is your invitation to be a fly on the wall as the experienced hosts discuss the fascinating world of investments and markets.

Magic Markets #34: Riots and Rands
Our home country is burning. South Africa is in economic turmoil and lives are being lost. This isn't sensationalist. This is what is happening on the ground, right now. In an incredibly sad week for our beautiful country, we have a heartfelt conversation about the situation and what it means for investors. It's an unpleasant reminder of the importance of creating optionality for yourself and your family. We hope to offer some perspective in dark times. Hosts The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla would like to thank you for making time to listen to us in a week where you are being bombarded with news and analysis.

Magic Markets #33: Do Your DiDi
The markets have been all over the place in the past week, with a rollercoaster ride for investors in Chinese tech stocks in particular. Ride-hailing business DiDi has been the catalyst for the latest concerns. In Episode 33 of Magic Markets, The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla chat through some of the companies in their portfolios and the approach they take when sections of the portfolio are under pressure. There's also a reminder that risks aren't always in line with the popular narrative. Although Chinese stocks are being discounted currently, the pending IPO of Robinhood is a perfect example of a risky play that has nothing to do with China. If nothing else, DiDi is a reminder that investors must always do their DD (due diligence) when investing in any company. You can't always see the risks, but the process is important to go through.

Magic Markets #31: Yield Masterclass
Whether you trade bonds or not, the yield curve has an important impact on all the assets in your portfolio. Valuations of shares are significantly impacted by changes in interest rates, driving up- and down-cycles that you don't want to get on the wrong side of, regardless of your stock picking abilities. In Episode 31 of Magic Markets, the hosts kick it up a gear on the technical side, discussing more advanced topics on the yield curve for those who are ready to learn more. The combination of Mohammed Nalla's macro and fixed income insights and The Finance Ghost's experience with equity valuations creates a yield masterclass that you don't want to miss.

Magic Markets #30: Investing Down Under
Mohammed Nalla took a break this week to deal with a tragic loss in his family, while The Finance Ghost ensured that the show goes on. Mark Tobin is the guest this week, an Irishman who writes about Australian stocks while living in Stellenbosch! He may struggle to choose who to support in the Rugby World Cup and he certainly struggles with Afrikaans pronunciations, but his international perspectives are invaluable. The show includes discussions on the key sectors in Australia, the spread of companies on the ASX, the extent of the small-cap universe vs. South Africa and the type of return metrics that can typically be expected on that market. If you want to expand your portfolio universe to include Australian stocks, this is a must-listen. For more from Mark, follow Coffee Microcaps on Twitter.
