What is meant by the term value buying? What are the typical signs of a value stock?In the context of the stock market, value investing means buying a good quality stock at a cheap valuation. It is something like buying items (clothes, shoes) in a ‘sale’ or when they are available at a discount. Two factors are very important here. The stock should be of a ‘good quality’ company and it should be available ‘cheap’. Sometimes, value investing gets confused with buying whatever is available cheap. That is not value investing. On the contrary, it could end up being a value trap resulting in no returns over a period of time. As an analogy, it means buying brands like Zara, Puma, Zodiac, Van Heusen during a sale. A discount bargain at a roadside stall may not necessarily be value investing.The technical definition of value investing is buying the stock of a good quality company at a price that is lower than its intrinsic value.

A shallow depth of field focused on the tips of the swimmer’s toes; a flurry of bubbles rising upwards; an unidentifiable torso powering serenely into the distance … sometimes a picture only needs a few simple ingredients to make it magical. This shot by Gerry Cranham is a classic example of his ability to craft timeless images. It depicts the Scottish swimmer Bobby McGregor, who would go on to win a silver medal in the 100m freestyle at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics (although arguably it matters little who the picture is of). For those wondering how it was shot … isn’t there magic in the mystery, too? Let’s just say that while the early 1960s had seen a boom in underwater photography with the release of the Calypso camera, which was conceived by the famed oceanographer and film-maker Jacques-Yves Cousteau, there were other options.

Nature abhors a vacuum – and so does the video games industry. Over the last year, Nintendo and Sony have each announced new versions of their classic consoles: the Mini NES and SNES machines are outselling modern platforms, and the forthcoming PlayStation Classic is stirring up interest. So what of Sega, the creator of the Master System and the Mega Drive (AKA Genesis), the console that brought the arcade home in the late 1980s? When it comes to retro consoles, until now there have only been cheap third-party Mega Drive retro consoles, which often have popular games built-in but use software emulation to replicate the original hardware. This has meant that games often run with terrible input lag and tend to look horrible on contemporary LED displays, making for a disappointing nostalgic experience. However, Analogue, a small specialist company in Seattle, Washington, is creating the Mega SG, a high-end, high-spec reproduction of the Mega Drive that will faithfully run the … [Read more...] about Sega Mega Drive returns – but this is no retro toy
New York (CNN Business)Walgreens Boots Alliance became the most recent addition to the Dow Jones Industrial Average in June 2018, when it replaced struggling conglomerate General Electric (GE) in America's most famous stock market indicator. Its Dow tenure may be among the shortest. KKR (KKR) has approached Walgreens about taking it over, Bloomberg reported Monday. If Walgreens (WBA) winds up getting bought out, the deal could be the biggest leveraged buyout ever. That news follows a Reuters report last week that said Walgreens was talking to private equity firms about a sale. If such a deal happens, that would mean Walgreens would no longer be publicly traded. In that event, S&P Dow Jones Indices, which selects the stocks for the Dow and S&P 500, would choose a new company to replace Walgreens. S&P Dow Jones Indices was not immediately available for comment about any possible changes to the makeup of the Dow. KKR reportedly wants to buy Walgreens in the largest … [Read more...] about Walgreens could leave the Dow. What should replace it?
