Magic Markets Ep113: Portfolio Winners and Losers

Moe opted to talk about Visa, Disney and Simon Property Group, as well as Fedex as an example of a trade that got away. The Finance Ghost spoke about Hasbro as a mistake, [...]

Magic Markets Ep78: A sneak peak at Premium


With 31 Premium shows behind us, we’ve learnt so much from our detailed research on global stocks. For example, we now know that Lululemon has an incredibly strong brand and direct-to-consumer strategy, with the next results due on 2nd June. We’ve also covered brands like Nike and Starbucks, which have had a tough time recently. In the search for defensive stocks, we’ve previously highlighted Pepsico and Visa as solid companies. Both have comfortably beaten the market this year, down between 3% and 4% in 2022. Simon Property Group is the kind of business that many would choose as a defensive stock, [...]
