It’s all about the Oil!!

Oil extends drop as Saudi energy minister Prince Abdulaziz sees full return of oil output by month's end

Losses for oil futures deepened on Tuesday, as Saudi Arabia's energy minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman said his nation's oil production will be fully back online by the end of the month, according to CNBC. His comments follow a weekend attack on Saudi oil facilities that was estimated to have cut the kingdom's daily crude production down by 5.7 million barrels a day, sparking concerns of potentially prolonged supply shortage. October West Texas Intermediate oil (clv9) was down $2.90, or 4.6%, to trade at $60 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

The Changing Face of Global Oil Production

By: Dave Lavigne

September 2019

As an adjunct to the independent research I have been writing since 2001, I have spent much of that period also providing a monthly article under one of my labels. Currently, I provide that article as a part of this newsletter (Stock Market Manager’s monthly “Black Swan Connection”). To be honest, it is sometimes difficult for me to settle on a topic for each monthly article. After providing such a publication each month for what is now approaching 20 years, one starts to run out of things to say. When Ifirst started writing the articles, I tried to take a more educational approach by providing some insights on issues that I thought were topical to securities analysis in general, and/or more specifically microcap investing. Those articles addressed things like “what is EBITDA and why is it important” and “what is enterprise value and how is it derived”. While I think I am reasonably versed in applicable financial topics, at some point I felt like I had touched on most of the relevant things I knew.

Maybe Florida real Estate should be in your Portfolio!! Nov-2018

Investing in real estate is definitely one of the best ways to make money. However, there are many circumstances which determine the success of your investment, and one of the most important ones is location. If you’ve spent even only a couple of months in the real estate investing business, you must have heard that location, location, location are the three most significant factors when buying a property.

For many good reasons, Florida has been one of the top places to invest in real estate in the US housing market for many years now. To begin with, Florida is the fourth most populous state in the US, and for real estate investors (and landlords) a lot of people translates into a lot of rental demand. Moreover, Florida enjoys one of the highest population growth rates nationwide, according to the US Census Bureau. The local economy is doing quite well, and the unemployment rate has been decreasing in recent years. All these factors spell out the perfect recipe for a profitable rental property to be rented out on long-term basis. Couple these with the many tourist attractions and the beautiful climate, and you end up with an ideal location for investing in short-term rentals (or vacation homes) as well.

Another piece of good news for real estate investors considering purchasing an investment property in the Sunshine State is the fact that Florida has been witnessing strong real estate development. This has helped keep average property prices in most Florida markets at a relatively reasonable level.

Everyone has a tendency to think: well all the good deals are snapped up. That couldn’t be further from the truth !!

The following is an example of a house that was damaged in a hurricane and can be had way under market if an investor has the wherewithal to go through the process of claiming the $230,000 in FEMA grants available to rebuild.

It’s an absolutely gorgeous waterfront lot in one of the most popular areas of the Gulf Coast.

CTi is defined as “the process of formation of the vapor phase of a liquid when it is subjected to reduced pressures at constant ambient temperature. Thus, it is the process of boiling in a liquid as a result of pressure reduction rather than heat addition”. ( will attempt to edify that further in the Product/Technology Overview of this report, but needless to say, it is not a concept most of us are familiar with or frankly (at least in our case) even capable of fully grasping. That notion may underscore the Company’s opportunities in terms of their ability to understand and apply the phenomenon to industries where it may represent an elegant solution. The Company launched its first pilot test

Guangdong Land Holdings, Ltd. HKSE 0124

Sales Continues At All Portfolio Properties

Unit Sales Continue Across Property Portfolio.  GDL reported first half results with Revenue of HK$464.1 million, which was generated from the delivery of 4,440m2 from Laurel House, 102m2 from Baohuaxuan, and 2,186m2 of residential space and 207m2 of car parking spaces at Ruyingju.  Pre-sales of GDH City during the period was 4,991m2.  Cost of Sales was HK$344.5 million, for a Gross Profit of HK$119.6 million, or 25.8%.  SG&A was HK$80.9 million, up significantly reflecting the greater number of projects GDL owns and increased marketing activity at GDH City.  Included in the marketing activities was a well-attended project kick-off event on June 14 for prospective buyers, renters and other partners.  Net Finance Expense was HK$35.8 million and Income Tax Expense was HK$47.2 million, which was partially offset by HK$17.0 million in Other Income, most of which was from Foreign Currency Gains.  Net Loss for the period was HK$27.4 million, or 1.98 cents per share, far below our estimate as we had assumed much faster sales of the Laurel House project.

N Land Contract Amendment.  On July 4, GDL amended its foundation pit support, earth and stone works, and piling works agreement with the contractor for its Northern Land site of GDH City, which will see GDL pay an additional HK$44.9 million.  The amendment was made primarily to account for the change in policy in Shenzhen requiring off-road vehicles to be new energy vehicles, which has markedly increased to cost to transport materials.  The change will ultimately result in a six month delay from the original timeline with this contractor, however management still believes the entirety of the N Land project will be completed as scheduled.

Related Party Sale - Laurel House Units.  On September 2, GDL announced it was selling a total of seven units from the Laurel House project to a subsidiary of its ultimate parent company, Guangdong Holdings.  A total of 692.65m2 was sold for cash at an average price of RMB 70,367 per m2, which falls in line with market prices.  GDL expects to report a net profit of RMB 2,642,000 from the sale of these units.  On July 18, GDL renewed its property management agreement with Yuehai Property Management for Laurel House, which now runs through 2020

Model Update.  Changes to our model include lengthening the time to contract and deliver units at Laurel House, increasing development expenses for GDH City as noted above, and making adjustments for the depreciation of the RMB relative to the HKD.

Maintaining Rating & Reducing Target.  The model changes noted above resulted in a reduction in our DCF valuation of the Company, from HK$4.75 to HK$4.25.  However, with GDH City making progress in terms of construction timeline and partner/tenant negotiations, we continue to believe GDL’s stock is undervalued at current prices.  As such we are reiterating our Buy rating on Guangdong Land.  Our target price is based on our DCF model that covers GDL’s entire project portfolio, discounted at 6.5%.

Petition for class action lawsuit

SHORT- Elio Motors, Inc. –ELIO Nov-2016  $11.80  Dec 17-18 price $3.15 starting to slip slide away again.

Still needs $300 million plus another $545,000 to cover this fine, but reality is that this car cannot be built for the price he talks about.
