These are demanding days for share investors – the market is suddenly testing ASX 5000 when many thought we should be sailing close to ASX 6000. But at Eureka Report we have seen our fair share of market swoons – not to mention the GFC – and we believe the market is now in value. We also believe there will be some very good opportunities in selected small cap stocks and among income generating stocks. For now though views are mixed on when to ‘go back in’: Alan Kohler sees value but is holding fire, Adam Carr says it is the best buying opportunity for years. (You can catch up with both their views in our lead feature today (click here).
Meanwhile, the show goes on: On Wednesday this week at midday you can catch up with our income analyst James Samson who will be in the studio to talk live with Elizabeth Redman about his Income First portfolio. James has recently recommended two of the larger banks ANZ and NAB for dividend yields along with the retailer Dick Smith.
Speaking of small cap stocks, Alan Kohler will be talking live to the CEO of Medical Developments International, John Sharman on Tuesday at 10.30am. Also don’t forget that earlier today we had two guests in the studio and you can catch up with those interviews by looking at our website: Greg Roebuck of Carsales and Julian Ogrin, the CEO at the nation’s largest ‘mobile virtual network operator’, Amaysim Australia.
Also on Thursday at 12.30pm our colleagues at brightday will be in the studio to host a webcast on Transition To Retirement pensions. After superannuation and negative gearing, TTR pensions are surely the greatest tax break in Australia, but they remain little understood by the wider community. If you are aged between the mid-50s and retirement age (65) and you want to find out how to optimise your pension plans tune into this webcast led by brightday’s Kirstie Spicer.
Looking out to next week don’t forget we have our biggest webcast of the season pencilled in for Wednesday September 2 when Alan Kohler, Clay Carter and Simon Dumaresq join me in the studio at12.30pm for a full review of the markets and the results season.
One last thing: Robert Gottliebsen has been AWOL for the last month. He’s been as far as the Baltic Sea and no doubt he will have plenty to tell us about how he views the market from home and abroad… don’t miss Robert’s return in this Wednesday’s edition.
