Elle got started with her savings plan in Jan 2018 with a monthly installment of €100. Now she has sufficient trading capital, so that (taking broker fees into account) the stock picking may make sense. She tried to make her hands dirty with stock selection and earned €139,53 gain or 8.6% return in less than a month! The CAGR of her savings plan is currently 13.75% Continue reading "JuniorDepot15 – Reaching 13.75% CAGR with stockpicking"
Leoni AG is a German company, specializing in production of high-quality cables for cars. Its shares are traded in sDAX (index of the best German smallcaps). From the beginning of the year Leoni's stock has lost more than 50%. Today, as Leoni has issued a profit warning, its stocks first fell about -6% but then quickly turned around to +5%, ending up by +1.5%. It may mean that the market is tired of the negative news. And even if not yet, German automotive is already fundamentally cheap. Continue reading "Intraday Somersault of Leoni AG stock: A General Turnaround in German Automotive?"

Tom [Tailor] and Gerry [Weber] are two German fashion boutiques (both are small caps). On January 7, 2016 I wrote a post "Tom And Gerry - Turnaround By Two German Fashion SmallCaps". In this post I correctly predicted the growth of Gerry Weber, based on the previous growth of Tom Tailor. Now one could have predicted the fall of Tom Tailor based on the previous fall of Gerry Weber. A perfect pair for peer trading isn' it?!

For hundreds of businesses and individuals who had relied for years on Yahoo's benevolent free service, this single action meant only one thing: Instant death!

Wer in DAX seit 1959 jeden Monat 200 DM bzw. €100 angelegt hätte, wäre nun Millionär. Zwar es in diesem Fall auch viel "wenn das Wörtchen wenn nicht wär" gibt, ist dieser Fall nicht unrealistisch und bestimmt betrachtenswert. Denn selbst wenn man den Zeitvorrat nicht von 60 sondern "lediglich" von 30 Jahren hat und die Rendite "nur" von 6% p.a. erreicht, wird man zumindest die Altersarmut vermeiden!

Heute fiel die Aktie von Daimler um mehr als 6%. Grund dafür war wohl der Dividendenabschlag aber vor allem die Enttäuschung der Aktionäre mit der Rede vom Dr. Z.
Dummerweise habe ich die Daimler als Beispiel genommen, als ich in meinem vor kurzem veröffentlichen Buch die Leser vor blinden Investitionen in "günstigen" Unternehmen warnte. Das war prophetisch und es lohnt sich diesen Fall genauer zu betrachten.

Nordex SE is one of the leading producers of the wind turbines. Its stock has a long difficult story, being both a tenbagger and a miserable loser. In either case it offers a lot of interesting case studies, one of which is the reaction to the annual report and the bankruptcy of a peer SolarWorld.
