Where did Uber go Wrong?

Seleho Tsatsi is in for Anthea today, and he anticipates that like-for-like net rental income for 2019 will be down by around 9%. He gives an update on Dis-Chem and how things are looking for them. Could they be the next Clicks? Uber on the other hand has their results out too, and it seems they’ve been bleeding money - $2.5 billion to be precise.

From Stable to Negative

Oil imports decreased during the month of September, causing trade surplus to widen. With the budget behind us, this past Friday Moody’s changed our outlook from Stable to Negative. On a brighter note, the US Dept of Labour said that they had added 128k jobs.

The Highs & Lows of our Markets

This week crude oil dropped below $61/bbl... we find out why with Anthea. Pick n Pay on the other hand reported a very impressive set of results, with an increase in turnover. Twitter reported a Q3 net income of $37-million, or 5 US cents per share.

Netflix vs Disney vs Amazon

Henry Biddlecombe joins us in place of Anthea this week, and he chats about streaming wars - with Disney and Amazon coming up as strong contenders against the likes of Netflix. He also touches on Brexit, and what it actually means for investors.

Currencies & Sensitivity

EM currency traders reacted nervously to Trump’s tweet, and Anthea explains why currencies are sensitive to seemingly insignificant things such as a tweet or someone's opinion. Trade negotiations remained in the spotlight as the Chinese delegation headed to Washington. Meanwhile back home, President Ramaphosa - in his recently launched Monday newsletters to the nation - said he is hopeful an agreement (AfCFTA – African Continental Free Trade Agreement) that could see the continent become the world’s largest free-trade zone, will boost the country’s sluggish economy.

Trade Wars & Risk

Markets were plagued by risk off sentiment last week as traders and investors worried about trade wars. Meanwhile, it looks like we’ll have a new listing on the JSE next year with Engen raising money to upgrade its Durban facilities. Then, FSCA imposed a record R100m fine on MetCI last week, four years after Third Circle lost two thirds of its value in just two days of trading in December 2015.

The Rise & Fall of Banking

Pick n Pay makes a startling announcement around being billions in debt. Capitec on the other hand seems to be bucking the banking trend and growing ever stronger, where other banks are seeing a decline. Then, Niche financial services group Ecsponent announces that they are expecting HEPS to fall by at least 195%.

The week of Central Banks

Anthea is back and gives us a full update on everything in the world of finance and banking. The CPI inflation has come out at 4.4%, while the EOH is expecting an EPS loss, and Sasol is planning on selling its South African coal mining business.

Why the Market has it so Wrong

Facebook: the 'not so sexy' tech stock these days. Henry Biddlecombe chats to us about social media platforms and what strategies they are putting in place to bring in more revenue. Do you know what influences your spending habits? Well big organisations do, and it might be useful to know how they capitalise on this with this week’s Money Shot.

Interesting Developments in the Tech Space

Sasol delays the release of its FY19 restuls and Seleho Tsatsi is in to tell us more. A new Apple phone has been unveiled and we get into the financials of this mobile giant, as well as whether it's actually worth the upgrade. On the other end of the spectrum, Facebook has launched a dating site in the US - but will they monetise this too, as we've seen with the likes of Tinder?

Let’s See the Results

There’s lots of company results from this past week. Stadio reported a 46% in HEPS for the first half of their financial year. Logistics business Imperial reported a 7% decline in full year earnings, blaming the economy for the poor performance. And finally, DRD Gold increased revenue by 11% and operating profit by 9%.

Make up your mind Mr President

Global markets adopted a 'wait and see' approach this week, in anticipation of what the US Fed would say at the Jackson Hole meeting, after the Yield curve inverted last week; volumes were just pathetic. Investors are getting whiplash as Trump spent the week flip flopping. Back home, Moody’s issued a statement stating that they believe that the South Africa’s government will try to absorb the additional support for Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd. with new revenue or expenditure measures in the mid-term budget.
