    I am still holding about 60 positions, many old dogs that hardly get up - except for ZEN just recently.
    But what is interesting is that I have about 10 bank hybrids which, on the charts look like amazing buys, for years I have been getting around 8% with franking credits.

    I'd be careful about IVC and other funeral mobs.

    Much of their profit is from the grieving about a loved one's death, persuading people to have more expensive coffins, flowers, pall bearers, expensive hearses, selling funeral paraphernalia, online appreciation pages and all the bells and whistles that go with it. I'm not saying btw that this is wrong. I'll enjoy someone else's wake as much as the next person.

    In Italy's case during the coronavirus mass deaths they are doing cremations, quickly and with no family from my reading of it.

    If you have ever been to an Italian funeral you will understand the difference in margins under this scenario.

    Place BBN on watch list for a purchase in 8 months time?

    Right now the Coles and Woolies of the world are trading gangbusters, but I see these more as "park your money" stock. It's going to take a while for people to eat through their rice reserves and wipe out their toilet rolls before supermarket shopping returns to rationality.

    My preference in the consumer marketplace would be DMP (Domino's Pizza) which has a sustainable dividend and a good chance at upside, having also improved it's "value" via share buybacks.

    Otherwise, which companies are major suppliers to hospitals? These will be doing well for weeks or months to come.

    on the flipside of the "babies in 9 months" idea, how about the divorce wave?
    There are probably heaps of people in relationships that only work because neither party is around often enough to annoy the other.

    I get the volatility in Coles at the moment, I get all the panic buying will be good for Coles…in the short term. Once the panic subsides and the average customer is seeing a real impact to their budget, surely that impacts Coles. I don't get why (the list is long) price has held up.


    Anecdotally, there is A LOT of room to cut spending if required on the grocery bill. If this does play out anything like Europe the average spend at Coles is about to take hit.

    As well as LNK I have been looking at Adairs (ADH) today for therapeutic nibbles.
    ADH has had two directors making three decent buys on market over the last week at average prices from $1.67 - 1.70.
    Intraday low today has been $1.11
    Also Pendal Funds Services announced a raise in its substantial holding 10/03/20 from 5.3% - 6.5%
    ADH goes ex dividend on April 1 for a 7c ff div
    Why I cant push the button so far is that ADH is down 7% when the rest of the market is up and it doesn't satisfy my chart instincts right now.
    Need to buy a little something or other

    so far Coles (blue) and Woolies (red on the 6 month graph, below) have done really well versus the XJO

    But is this defensive or just consumption brought forward?

    Wesfarmers owns Office Works, correct? There's a heap of people buying home office equipment due to being sent to work from home.

    Some might be interested in Tyro, Z1P and afterpay. In fact, most of the BNPL space. Been hit harder and faster than bank's, wondering if they will climb faster than bank's when the time is right. Cheaper money lending for them, yet most have set fees which may offset some or all of reduced? spending.
    I see more people supermarket shopping than ever! It's almost like Christmas how busy it is...
    API and SIG will be interesting.
    Vitamin C all gone as well as echinacea products. Can't see retail pharmaceutical doing to badly, in fact, I would expect the reverse.
    Will get the missus to give me some stats from the Priceline (ASX:API) pharmacy she works at... after 2 weeks isolation.
    COH cochlear also. Ops starting again in China.

    SWF should bounce back with the massive trading volumes occuring.
    Probably on news announcements though.
    Cheers.

    ^^^^
    Tabcorp Hldgs?
    (TAH) @ $2.50
    No chart encouragement, but down at GFC level @ around $2.50 right now, down ~6% today. Yield 8.8% ff at today's price if div maintained.
    Price at 0.75 x book value at yesterday's close (fy19 bv=3.57)

    My problem with TAH is that in the good times it just didn't do that well anyway..SP has spent a lot of time going sideways.

    I'd have to agree. Sales per share stagnant.
    It has quite high debt ($3.5B) and (I'm guessing) high intangibles that make for negative net tangible assets. Yet for the past two financial years it could only achieve ROE of 2.9% and 5.5%. Doesn't seem attractive in this environment.

    Sitting around in a semi "self-isolated" situation, the excitement of the markets and thrill of the chase can only last so much.

    Now that I know the world is coming to an end, we've decided to fill in the time productively. (The only way to kill time is to work it to death). It's a shame that Dulux is no longer listed on the ASX, because some of those jobs around the house, projects that seemed daunting before, have now assumed a place on a purposeful and attainable wish-list THAT WILL GET DONE.

    Bunnings (WES), expect a steady flow of home handi-folk.

    and Ali Farka Toure on high rotation.
