Magic Markets Ep177: Nvidia and Intuit


Nvidia has been a headline grabber of note in global markets, with eyewatering returns that have left even the other semiconductor stocks for dead. Mohammed Nalla focused on not just the latest results from Nvidia, but the performance of other stocks in the sector. The Finance Ghost tackled Intuit, covering the growth in revenue across the product range and the importance of integration strategies within the ecosystem. Although this is a powerful SaaS business, the risk of a double top in the share price chart cannot be ignored.

Magic Markets Ep176: Walmart and Under Armour


Walmart is a good example of a pullback from the work-from-home trend that became a feature of the pandemic, with many viewing this as a return to the company’s roots. This is seen favourable against a backdrop of improved performance at Walmart. Under Armour is also going back to its roots, more out of necessity than by design. Founder Kevin Plank is back in the CEO role and has a very tough road ahead, with the company experiencing a sharp drop in sales and needing to reposition its products as premium.

Magic Markets Ep175: Chipotle Mexican Grill and Wingstop


When quick-service restaurant groups get things right, they really get it right. Fast-growing companies in this sector can achieve rapid expansion because of the franchise model and the oldest trick in the book: using other people's money.

Magic Markets Ep107: The 2023 Outlook


If you can imagine the worst possible year for anything, then you’re starting to understand what 2022 was like for investors in growth stocks. The combination of rising interest rates and inflated valuations at the start of the year meant that investors suffered drops of 30% (and more) across many of the “growth” names in the portfolio, including the world’s leading tech companies. Investing requires a longer-term lens than this and a strong stomach, although we all know that seeing these drops isn’t fun. Together with Craig Antonie of AnBro Capital Investments, we recap why 2022 was a perfect storm and [...]
