On The Other Hand

A company with a 3% dividend yield today will be yielding 6% in ten years if its dividend grows at a 7% annual rate. Dividend-paying stocks can offer market-type returns when stocks grow by up to 15%. In our experience, dividend-payers only begin to lag the overall market when the S&P 500 grows by 25% or more. This is for the company I do the classes through called “Education to Go.” They offer A TON more classes than just the two classes I have, and pretty much have a class for every interest. Yet in Buffett’s position, it is possible to have a transaction and yet benefits both the buyer and the seller. This claimed that Bitcoin would be superior to existing forms of electronic money such as credit cards, providing benefits like eliminating chargebacks to merchants and reducing transaction fees. Satoshi Nakamoto’s solution was the Bitcoin blockchain, a cryptographically secured public ledger that records transactions anonymously and is kept as multiple copies on many different users’ computers. The first narrative of Bitcoin’s value was built into Nakamoto’s original “white paper”. On the one hand, we have the day traders, who hope to exploit the volatility of Bitcoin’s price by buying and selling quickly to take advantage of short-term price movements.

And one problem I have, is that my suppliers often don’t accept these promises. Bitcoin arose from a tiny group of cryptographers who were trying to solve the “double spend” problem facing digital money: “cash” held as a digital file could easily be copied and then used multiple times. Greece has another big vote coming tomorrow, it’s still hard to see how its debt problem will be resolved with protests in the street. This blog was written prior to today’s news about Greece. Furthermore, Greece represents only 2% of the European Union, which is a fraction of the global economy. Investing in the shares of distressed European banks requires tremendous courage – success requires a decent dose of luck and good timing, in addition to picking the right horse. The report added to the sense of caution felt after President Trump on Friday threatened to impose a 20 percent tariff on all cars imported from the European Union. This countercultural levity generated a sense of community and a commitment to holding Bitcoin that helps to sustain its value.

But if we look more carefully, we can trace the history of Bitcoin through five key narratives. The key difference between the 2 groups is the former has lump-sum, one-time payouts while the latter have variable or regular payouts over a period of time. The last two groups that have contributed to Bitcoin’s history are more conventional. He did so by stressing the absence of any central authority and particularly Bitcoin’s independence from both states and existing financial institutions. Bitcoin’s value, then, has been built on an evolving series of narratives which have drawn in successive waves of buyers. In 2011, dividend-paying companies, particularly those that have a history of consistently raising dividends, gradually were seen to be bond substitutes. A 3% dividend yield looks good in a 2% stock or bond world, but it does not stack up so well against 15% returns. Despite dividend-investing’s recent popularity, many investors still only look at one facet of the power of dividend investing: dividend yield. He told me that one of the most difficult skills for beginners to master is what to do when their kite starts to plunge earthward. That was the first thing the adviser told us, that in order to be eligible to hear his words of wisdom, we really should have more money invested with Fidelity, to be a “premier” member or whatnot.

For the better part of our working lives, most people work within a corporate system at a variety of jobs and companies. Investing in the NPL book or entering into a 3rd party servicing agreement to run down the NPL book offers significantly better odds of success. With the nuclear story going down the chute, the smart money is pouring into LNG, oil and coal. Oil wealth meets futuristic electric cars may sound like an odd mix. In my last 2 blog posts, I identified the multi-baggers listed on the Singapore Exchange from May 2006 and May 2014 and categorised them according to the industry they are in. In short “To Dividend or Not to Dividend” may be a false question. These investors join what Keynes called a “beauty contest” – they only care what other people might be prepared to pay for a Bitcoin in the short to medium term future.

Nakamoto criticised central banks for debasing money by issuing increasing amounts of it and designed Bitcoin to have a hard limit on the amount that could be issued. Investors and financial institutions have had seven years to get used to the prospects of a Greek default. The final and newest group of Bitcoin buyers are the portfolio balancers: more sophisticated investors who buy Bitcoin to hedge against wider risks in the financial system. The hodlers insisted, half seriously, that Bitcoin was going “to the moon! Commentators are often dismissive of Bitcoin buyers, writing them off as naive victims of a fraudulent bubble. Fortunately or unfortunately, the rest of the industries/markets are all tech-related and most value investors hate tech bcos tech has never really created much value. What I consider the fourth group of investors consists of speculators who have been attracted by the volatility and peaks in Bitcoin prices. While mainstream commentators are often dismissive of Bitcoin as lacking inherent value, all asset market values depend on narrative processes like these.
