Anatomy of business building success

The great business thinker Peter Drucker once explained successful business in pretty simple terms. He said it starts with an innovation and then it’s all down to marketing. When you trawl through the marketing messages that have been burnt onto your mental hard disk, you know no truer business words have ever been uttered. But […]

Question of when

One week into September — the scariest month of all on Wall Street — and no sell-offs, yet. That’s good news but we still have the rest of the month and that pesky October to deal with. And locally, we have another dilemma — will the Reserve Bank raise interest rates in October? Frankly, I […]

Storm clouds

An inquiry held in Brisbane into the collapse of Storm Financial has searched for the answer to the central question about what happened to Storm and its clients. Was it a cock-up? A conspiracy? Or just plain old greed? These are the questions posed by The Sydney Morning Herald’s Stuart Washington, and they are good […]

Top 30 stocks

When I kicked off my show, SWITZER on Sky Business Channel on 29 June this year, I told my viewers I wanted to pursue the perfect portfolio over time and then we would add or take from it, tracking its performance over time. I gave myself an imaginary starting point, which was the group of […]

Scary September

September promised to bring spooky trading days and on day one in the USA, like a Hollywood scary movie, it delivered a gasping fright right from the start. But don’t worry. Unlike the blockbuster called ‘Lehman Brothers is Dead’, which ran last September, this one looks more like being a B-grade production called something like: […]

Pullback, smullback

The case for a September share market pullback is building, especially with the Chinese stock market starting to take a dramatic dive, but my old mate, ex-chief economist at Deutsche Bank, Don Stammer is not worried. He sees it as a buying opportunity of the stocks he wants to hold in his portfolio. I asked […]

Focus on YOU

Forget about the market. Forget about interest rates and stop worrying about your job and focus on the most important moneymaking issue in your life — you! That’s right, watching the market, timing your buys and sells of shares, locking in interest rates at the right time as well as buying the right assets in […]

Beware September and October

I know Julius Caesar’s wife Calpurnia warned the Roman emperor to “beware the Ides of March” but investors would do better to worry about the months of September and October. There has been a bit of a debate about what month is really the spookiest with crashes often happening in October but the records actually […]

Time to hate the banks?

According to a passage in the bible, there’s a time to love and even a time to hate and lots of Aussies allocate their limited amount of hate for banks. And given what they can do, it can be understandable but the question is — is it time to hate banks? I have to be […]

Don't get left behind online

Just how modern do you think you are? A recent report pretty well implies that if you are not online you are off the planet! So if you want to benchmark yourself against the cutting edge generation and online fanatics, have a look at the big observations from the 2009 e-Business Report from Sensis. If […]

Interest rate knowns and unknowns

What in the hell is going on with interest rates? There’s a new story every day and every one of them is very believable but they are different. At the risk of doing a Donald Rumsfeld, there is one knowable — rates won’t be cut again in this country in the near future unless some […]

Start of the pullback?

We have turned a little bit chicken in Australia, losing 3.82 per cent over the week on the S&P/ASX 200, while the Yanks's S&P 500 index actually went up 2.2 per cent in the same time. So, as September looms, is this the start of the often talked about pullback? Our market was not helped […]
