We first covered MercadoLibre in March 2023. We talked about Alibaba meeting Amazon in Latin America. Mostly, we were just highly impressed with the cohesive ecosystem that the company has built. We were also big fans of the commitment to profitability, something that many tech companies could learn something from. With Argentina in the headlines and renewed focus on the broader LatAm region, how has the business performed this year?

In episode 152 of Magic Markets, we’ve lined up a battle of the retail giants – Target vs. Walmart.

Could TJX be the best retailer you've never heard of? With a regional moat that executes off-price retail with great success at scale, we really like this company. The valuation has run hard though, so what does that mean for entry tactics?
Boeing is in a tough industry and things have been even harder in recent years. After terrible reputational damage before the pandemic that included tragic loss of life, the supply chain hangover of the pandemic and the extensive debt raise to keep the company going just added to the pain trade. Now a turnaround story at best, is there something here for punters?
This week, we’ve got property on our minds – buying it, renting it and even building it from the ground up. While Ghost is bringing homegrown insights from locally listed property investors Balwin and Calgro M3, Moe is discussing D.R Horton (no relation to Dr. Seuss), a home construction company headquartered in Arlington, Texas.
Qualcomm holds a vast library of patents for 3G, 4G and 5G technology. The company has earned licensing revenue for years, with the profits reinvested in extensive R&D to create the Snapdragon range of chips and associated systems. On paper, it should all be going well. In practice, Qualcomm has been a laggard in the sector. With smartphone volumes under pressure, what does the near-term picture look like?
Welcome to another exciting episode of our podcast featuring Justine Brophy from AnBro, a voice familiar to listeners. This week, we're revisiting Dexcom as a stock that AnBro holds in its Unicorn portfolio. It’s great to be able to track the journey of a specific stock through a volatile market, with Justine regularly coming onto the show to use it as a good example of how the team at AnBro reacts to market dynamics. This show discusses what the recent market turbulence and why does AnBro remain invested in the stock, despite a headache-inducing rollercoaster ride from $112 to $74 and back to $96 per share?
Welcome to episode 149 of Magic Markets. It’s the middle of US earnings season, and two international tech giants have released results last week. This is a tale of two stocks, with one garnering a very positive reaction from the market and the other… well, not so much. Join us as we discuss Amazon and Alphabet (the holding company of Google).
With many people still recovering from the sugar hangover that is Halloween, we felt it was a good time to cover consumer brands business Hershey. Although there’s a strong attempt underway to grow the healthier product lines, Hershey is known as a confectionary company. There’s been nothing sweet about the performance this year, with the market talking about the “Ozempic Era” and the popularity of weight-loss drugs. The worry is whether the cravings will go away. For investors, the risk is that profits go away with those cravings. But is the market simply focusing on the wrong thing entirely?
