Playing Through to the Final Whistle

You’ve probably heard this expression used by your junior soccer or rugby coach before – play to the final whistle. As simple and as trivial as it may seem, it really does hold stupendous importance in our adult lives as we look to set ourselves up for the new year.  Think about it, we’re now in December where the Christmas parties start, your in-laws have flown into town and Christmas is only just around the corner – an easy excuse to take your foot off the gas and kick back, leaving December as a complete write-off, right? As a professional

Have you filled up your car this week?

If your answer is yes, chances are you’ve probably paid a lot for your fuel. For most people, fuel consumption represents around 3.5% of your weekly household budget – which doesn’t seem like a lot, until it does. If we take a look at oil prices over the last month or so, the price of brent crude has crossed above $86/barrel (at recent highs) which represents the highest levels in 3 years. West Texas Intermediate Oil, on the other hand, is trading at its highest levels since 2014 as it’s added on nearly 20% since September. The reason for such

Is October the Month to Buy the Banks?

Let’s face it – every stock market investor loves a half-yearly report and they sure as hell love a good dividend. In the case of the big four banks on the ASX – ANZ, NAB, Westpac, and Commonwealth – October is the month where all of this information is started to be presented to investors.

Seasonally Speaking: It May be Time to Play some Defence

There’s no doubt we’ve had a stellar run in markets over the past year or so. In what was a major crash amidst news of the initial Corona Virus outbreak, many investors took this as an opportunity to buy up and take advantage of arguably the quickest run-up in markets ever before. With the ASX breaking that crucial level of 7500 points in early August and rallying quite hard, my suspicion is that September may not be as strong of a month and rather may be a little choppy. Why? Well, if we take a look at the seasonal statistics

What’s one industry that will never go out of fashion?

What’s one industry that will never go out of fashion? As a mix between healthcare and technology, it comes as no surprise that Cerner Corporation (NAS: CERN) has dominated headlines. And continued to make gains in the stock market this year. As my top stock tip for June, let’s take a look into why CERN provides. Such a strong case for investment this month.

Facebook Trading Opportunity

Do you want to know how to bank profit, right now? Facebook Trading Opportunity Have you checked your social media today? One stock I absolutely am loving this month is Facebook (NAS: FB). Not only has CEO and Founder, Mark Zuckerberg, managed to create a super addictive social media outlet. Where users can post and share moments from their life. He’s also managed to foster a whole ecosystem of business. That has made Facebook one of the largest companies on the stock market to date. From a fundamental point of view. There’s no doubt in my mind that Facebook will
