Premierships are Won in October!

Australians love our sport and its Grand Final Weekend! Crows v Tigers               Storm -v- Cowboys What a weekend! But for these teams, their fate of playing in the Grand Final stems from ACTIONS taken LAST OCTOBER…… Ian Flack knows elite sport – he worked in the AFL system for over 25 years. Recruiting, administration and high-performance coaching with clubs like Collingwood and Melbourne. It’s a brutal environment. There are enormous cross overs between Elite Sport and Investing. The need to focus, be resilient and well prepared. The ability to perform under pressure and understand and control your own personal psychology. When working in AFL, one of Ian’s core mantras was “Premierships are won in October”. Sounds kinda crazy when you think about all the hype and excitement that is going on now? The “momentum” that teams bring into the finals, injuries and the 150

On a Winged Keel and a Prayer

ON A WINGED KEEL AND A PRAYER The team at Calnan Flack are always on the lookout for indications of where we are in the cycle and what opportunities arise. Investor Mentor Cathy Stacey wrote this blog following her recent trip to New Zealand. ‘On a Winged Keel and a Prayer’ I have just returned from 10 days in New Zealand with family. It was a joining of my husband Nic’s Greek family and my Kiwi family and we all had a wonderful time together. Of course while I was in Auckland and Hawkes Bay (North Island) I was on the lookout to see if there were any signs of ‘The Cycle’. Well they are everywhere! Especially construction and when I dug a bit deeper the signs of the Cantillon effect were shining bright! Phil […] 150

It’s One for the Money

IT’S ONE FOR THE MONEY For every Boom there is a Crash. History tells us that the higher prices fly, the greater the crash will be. Its inevitable, isn’t it? The more emotional investing becomes the more irrational the pricing. There is an old saying that when “Taxi drivers start recommending stocks it is time to sell” Welcome the new world of Cryptocurrencies, with BitCoin the biggest and boldest of them all. Bitcoin invented by an unknow person or persons, calling themselves Satoshi Nakamoto, is an open-source currency and digital payment system. It is a Peer-to-Peer network with transactions taking place directly without an intermediary like a Bank, PayPal or Western Union. Transactions are recorded in a publicly distributed ledger called blockchain. According to Jon Peddie of Jon Peddie Research “People are sending Bitcoins to each other over the Bitcoin network all the […] 150

The Future is Here. ……. It’s Just a Little Slow.

THE FUTURE IS HERE…IT’S JUST A LITTLE SLOW The future is upon us, its just starting out a little slow. But don’t be fooled or underestimate just exactly what is happening and what the undisputable outcome will be. It just may surprise us where these changes are popping up and the massive impact they will have. Recently I was in Darwin, my youngest making the SA State footy team and we stayed in an apartment on the beautiful Waterfront. A spectacular view and another classic example of how infrastructure & some congregation of population gives some land a locational advantage resulting in sky high apartment prices! It is staggering when you think about it – Waterfront land is abundant in Darwin. Its population a mere 110,000. Less than 230,000 in the entire NT. Yet a 3 bed apartment with water […] 150
