Westpac: I'm Thinking of Returning

Related image

Rocked up to the local Westpac at Albany Mall today after clicking on the make your credit balance $2500 more - that was OK.

In the meantime saw Wilson at the bank & found out I have an interest free period left on my Visa till July next year.

When I had issues with the card in July I contacted the bank and they sorted out the problem and it seems they started the 12 months again from July. So I don't have to pay anything off (except the minimum balance.)

So at the same time I told Wilson about this I decided to open a bank account. This was the first time I have had an acc with Westpac in 30 years (apart from my Credit Card).

I want to see how they go and if they are good (I'm unhappy with ASB who I been with for more than 20 years) Im going to change some or all of my banking.

How do you folks out there deal with this "problem"?

New Zealand Refining: CEO Should Walk

New Zealand Refining Ltd [NZR.NZXThe scenario set out below is bullshit.

GENERAL: NZR: Statement from the Chief Executive, Sjoerd Post

"While Refining NZ will not generally respond to media commentary, in the
current circumstances regarding issues with the Refinery to Auckland
pipeline, and recent media commentary concerning when Refining NZ first
notified those issues to the market, Refining NZ considers it appropriate to
do so. For complete clarity, there was no delay in disclosing information to
the market or to other stakeholders.

The company announced to the market as soon as it understood that the
pipeline would not be operational for more than a few days. Initially
Refining NZ thought that the leak could be fixed within 2 days by installing
a clamp on the damaged section of the pipe. If that had been the case the
issue would have been within the ambit of operational matters and of no
concern to our customers and the wider public. It only became apparent over
the weekend that the damage to the pipeline would take longer to remedy - and
accordingly we announced this to the market before it opened on Monday, 18

All going to plan, we expect to deliver jet fuel via the pipeline into Wiri
between midday Sunday and midday Tuesday. From that point Refining NZ expects
it will take another 30 hours for the jet fuel to settle, for recertification
to be obtained, and to transport to Auckland international airport".

Sjoerd Post
Chief Executive

Bullshit because once the initial thing happened last Thursday and there was a facebook post about it there was a possibility that there could be a major outage. Guess what there is a major outage. That should have been disclosed on Thurs to the market NOT yesterday before markets opened.

The ultimate person responsible for this is the Chief Ex Sjoerd Post.

He needs to walk.

The NZX also needs to come down on NZR like a tonne of bricks but it won't.

I don't know if you the reader know it but I have traded NZR quite a few times over the years. If I knew Sjoerd Post was the man he has turned out to be I wouldn't have bothered with it. I will also cease trading of this share until it can be proven to me that management know what they are doing.

Because I believe it goes deeper than the Chief Ex.

Little wonder why the share price has hardly even moved.

Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Ltd: Where's it Been Over the Last Month & Why

Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Ltd [FPH.NZX] is taking a trajectory that is firmly north over the last week or two.

This is based on off shore buying - I only found this out on Fri 8th - this is because of significant buying based on this investor briefing.

Apparently this is solely responsible for the uplift. There is not a lot on offer, so up she goes. 

Have a look below on briefing from Yahoo daily share-trading.

The rise is actually based on increased trading, $100 plus million over the last week and counting.

So when I surmised a few posts back that it was institutional trading I was only partly right.

Because what you see is a rise in share price down to one thing.

Its US mums and dads buying the shares based on what their brokers are hearing at the investor briefings.

A knucklehead thing for investors to do but they are buying FPH shares nonetheless.

Question is when will the yanks be finished?

When Labour Gets In

Jacinda Ardern Becomes Labour’s Sixth Leader in Nine Years

The question is what do investors do in the face of impending doom when the Labour Party stumbles across the line to win the 2017 election. 

Well they've started it already.

They have stopped buying Auckland International Airport Ltd [AIA.NZX] its moving backwards with a DIV coming,

Auckland Airport growth is bound to stall under a Labour Govt.

Labour's stated aim is to at least halve immigration and I think it will go completely the other way within 2 years - people will not want to stay.

The other thing Labour is going to introduce, a $25 dollar new tax for travelers to this country is going to have a major impact on tourists.

This will clearly impact further on Auckland Airport, it clearly has already.

Uncertainty certainly plays a part in it, there's no doubt about that but reality plays a big part as well and Labour's focus of their extra spending is on the unproductive parts of the economy. That has been the way of the Labour Govt's from year one.

But you don't get economic growth from putting taxpayer money into things like "higher wages for everyone" it is simply a blight on the taxpayer and business as a whole.

You've got to be focused on what you as an individual can bring to the table rather than Labour's view that whats on the table is mine and that extending the table through extra taxes and more Govt borrowing is the way to go.

Its not.

You've got to wonder about those companies that have got a high component of transport costs, Like Freightways and Fletcher Building. 

These companies have come off recent highs and they are nervous about what will happen when Labour gets into power.

Every company on the NZX  is effected by the probable change of Govt.

I'm not worried about my investments. I will take the time to look at each company in the Share Investor Portfolio and buy more when they get cheap enough.

That's the thing with long-term investing in shares and changes in Govt. You make your serious money in times of gloom and (like we will be heading to under a Labour Govt) and make even more in times of boom (like we are just coming off now - under National).

Either way I'm not disturbed.
