Interested in HSBC shares? Here’s what I’m buying instead

0005 HSBC +1 more 0005 HSBC HSBA

HSBC shares could be a bargain at this level. But I can’t bring myself to own shares in this Asia-focused bank today. So I want to explain why I’m avoiding HSBC and introduce the emerging markets stock I’ve been buying instead. What’s wrong with HSBC shares? More than 90% of the group’s 2019 profits came from its Hong Kong-based business, so the bank can’t afford to alienate China. But HSBC needs to avoid antagonising the US too, as its international operations are an important attraction for clients. That usually means a cut is likely, so I expect a reduced payout from next year. Although I do expect this 155-year old bank to adapt and survive, the outlook is too uncertain for me. Instead, Ashmore invests in debt and other assets in a wider range of emerging markets. What Ashmore does offer is many of the things HSBC lacks. For example, it has been consistently profitable in recent years and generates very high profit margins.

Eldorado Gold (TSE:ELD) Seems To Use Debt Quite Sensibly

ELD

Eldorado Gold (TSE:ELD) Seems To Use Debt Quite Sensibly. Howard Marks put it nicely when he said that, rather than worrying about share price volatility, ‘The possibility of permanent loss is the risk I worry about… and every practical investor I know worries about.’ So it might be obvious that you need to consider debt, when you think about how risky any given stock is, because too much debt can sink a company. We note that Eldorado Gold Corporation (TSE:ELD) does have debt on its balance sheet. But the real question is whether this debt is making the company risky. What Risk Does Debt Bring? In the worst case scenario, a company can go bankrupt if it cannot pay its creditors. However, a more frequent (but still costly) occurrence is where a company must issue shares at bargain-basement prices, permanently diluting shareholders, just to shore up its balance sheet. The image below, which you can click on for greater detail, shows that at June 2020 Eldorado Gold had debt of US$597.1m, up from US$482.5m in one year. However, it does have US$445.0m in cash offsetting this, leading to net debt of about US$152.1m. How Strong Is Eldorado Gold’s Balance Sheet?

Antofagasta plc's (LON:ANTO) Intrinsic Value Is Potentially 37% Above Its Share Price

ANTO

Remember though, that there are many ways to estimate a company's value, and a DCF is just one method. If you want to learn more about discounted cash flow, the rationale behind this calculation can be read in detail in the Simply Wall St analysis model. Where possible we use analyst estimates, but when these aren't available we extrapolate the previous free cash flow (FCF) from the last estimate or reported value. We assume companies with shrinking free cash flow will slow their rate of shrinkage, and that companies with growing free cash flow will see their growth rate slow, over this period. The Gordon Growth formula is used to calculate Terminal Value at a future annual growth rate equal to the 5-year average of the 10-year government bond yield of 1.2%.

Private equity firm Lone Star swoops on McCarthy & Stone in £630m bid

MCS

US private equity firm Lone Star has made a bid for retirement housebuilder McCarthy & Stone (MCS.L), in a deal that values the company at £630m ($430m). Last month, Lone Star was also in the race to buy supermarket chain Asda but dropped out as it was unable to meet the price sought by its owner Walmart (WMT). Donald Quintin, president of Lone Star Europe, said on Friday that McCarthy is in a “market underpinned by clear fundamentals: a rapidly ageing population and a structural undersupply of suitable housing options for older people.”. He added: “We believe that Lone Star would provide a complementary partner for McCarthy & Stone stakeholders and along with the investment in the business that Lone Star can provide, will enable further improvements of its transformation strategy and allow McCarthy & Stone to capitalise on its growing rental and multi-tenure offering which would underpin the long-term growth of McCarthy & Stone."

No-frills airline Wizz Air plots swoop for 1 in 5 Gatwick flights

WIZZ

Wizz Air is plotting a multi-billion-pound expansion that could see it operating up to one in five flights from Gatwick within five years. The Hungarian airline agreed a €3billion financing package in August and now hopes to expand its UK business by taking over airport slots from rival airlines after opening new bases at Gatwick and Doncaster Sheffield airport last week. Owain Jones, UK boss of the no-frills airline, told The Mail on Sunday it wants to take over up to 20 of the around 110 take-off and landing slots at Gatwick from rivals. Wizz Air has been lobbying the Government to free up slots, saying the current regulations protect airlines with 'weak business models'.

TalkTalk in arrears with BT as it prepares call on buy-out

BT-A TALK

TalkTalk is locked in dispute with the network arm of BT over an unpaid broadband bill of more than £10m, as it attempts to disconnect from the stock market with a private equity buy-out. Four industry sources said TalkTalk had not paid a chunk of the fees it owes Openreach for using its infrastructure to serve 4.2m broadband customers. The arrears are understood to date back to the end of last month, when TalkTalk was due to make its monthly payment of around £70m and close its books for its half-year report on Nov 11. It is in talks with the hedge fund Toscafund, which is run by Sir Charles’s business ally Martin Hughes, about a buy-out that would value the company at £1.1bn.

Monero, STEEM, Dash Price Analysis: 24 October - AMBCrypto

XMR

At the time of writing, Monero had recorded gains of just over a percent, in the last 24 hours. However, the digital asset, over the next few trading sessions, could be expected to rise towards a crucial pivot level, ensuring a bullish rally. STEEM, on the other hand, maintained a neutral outlook as consolidation possibilities became clearer from its technical indicators. For DASH, a rise above its present resistance level and reinvigorated buying pressure seemed likely. Monero was maintaining an uptrend on the charts, rising above two of its resistance turned support levels in the last 24 hours. Having said this, existing volatility levels were still not strong enough to push the price into a bullish zone. However, a breach above the immediate resistance level could be seen within the next 24 hours.
