The Stock Scribe

There is a lot of panic out there at the moment. People who invested large portions of their stock portfolio in the currency markets have taken a genuine beating. There is certainly nothing at all new under sunlight. No one cares more about your money than you choose to do. The media will be most thinking about the stock market when it’s the most severe time for you to buy and most pessimistic when stock marketplaces have fully costed in the most severe possible situation.

Now, I simply want to get on those last three factors. 7. The ongoing company collapses. In the 1990-91 downturn we saw companies like Adsteam, Qintex, Bond Corp, Rothwells and many more collapse. Fast forwards to 2008 and we can substitute: Allco, MFS, Babstick & Brown, ABC learning, Centro and a number of outlined property trusts.

These companies and trusts may experienced different businesses, but there is practically no difference in the modus operandi of some of them. The above steps to corporate collapse could be circumvented by either lenders to these companies or their auditors (where the financial statements provided by the firms clearly misrepresented the true budget of the business).

  • Custodians fees
  • Proof of Identity
  • General knowledge makes starting discussions easy
  • Competency interview
  • 4 percent as a small fraction in the lowest conditions is 1/25
  • Current Account

However, there was no resistance on these fronts. On the elevation of any boom the banks are willing to indulge in a variety of imprudent lending methods. They just never learn. And rest assured, they will repeat this folly in the decades to come after the memories of 2008 fade. Auditors are the accomplices of banks.

Auditors were prepared to convey that the relevant company’s reported financial position was “true and fair” (when it was anything but that). As as they can draw out exorbitant fees from your client long, they may be happy. If they finish up being sued (as they always do), they have professional indemnity insurance to look after most of the expenses.

A cursory go through the balance sheets of all failed companies (where the audit got actually been done properly) would have revealed high degrees of interest bearing personal debt in relation to tangible equity – danger sign number one. Further, most failed companies have very brief histories as outlined companies – danger sign number two. This is always a risk sign because these businesses had never been through a bear market (and everything it brings).
