I am back from my vacation, some updates and notes:

Saleorder I installed for BT Group striked and I sold my Position with an acceptable profit (annualized). I am still not sure if I want to do things like that in the future considering the risk/reward profile of that investment speculation.


Foot Looker released some good Q4 numbers. The stock now sales for ~15.5 earnings. Btw. I like their reporting.

The Company’s net income increased to $664 million in 2016, or $ 4.91 per share, compared to net income of $541million, or $3.84 per share in 2015.
Seems like Hormel Foods and L Brands disappointed investors. Both stocks lost recently. I am planing to lock at them.
French Vivendi goes down and down slowly… maybe I will look at it again. (Bollore stayed more or less flat)



To Do list:

  • Read Warren Buffett’s Annual Letter
  • looking at Hormel Foods again
  • looking at Danaher
  • looking at Vivendi
  • looking at L Brands (Victorias Secret)

Are UK Equities overvalued from Mitchell Fraser-Jones at woodfordfunds

The UK stock market’s current PE of about 15x this year’s anticipated earnings, implies a real annualised total return of approximately 8% over the next 10 years, based on the historic trend shown on the chart. This isn’t bad, in our view, especially when compared to the likely returns available from other asset classes.

Update: Sapec, Actelion

MMI from valueandopportunity came up with this two special situations which leed to this actions:

Bought 2,3% Position of Actelion on Friday

Bought 2,5,% Position of Sapec SA Today


Sapec SA


Disclaimer: This is not investment advice. The stock mentioned is relatively illiquid and potentially risky. Please do your own research !!!!

Seems like the deal is finished (link)



I think the Newco is also on a standalone basis very interesting because 1.) the current CEO stays with them, and 2.) the imbalance between the Actelion (280$) and Newco (~10$) price could create a lot of “forced” sales on the first days of trading.


Under Armour

Since it lost ~20% on one Trading day and has a “brand” name I have looked at UA but for me it was still very expensive and the move in fashion sounds very risky for me – no buy from me here.
