Stock Review: Net 1 UEPS Technologies (UEPS)

November 25, 2008 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: UEPS , V , MC

Net 1 UEPS has designed a system for electronic payments in the majority of the world that lives "off the grid". UEPS stands for "Universal Electronic Payments System". This system deserves a bit of explanation, because it's unfamiliar to most folks that live in developed economies. We take electronic payments for granted now a-days. When you swipe a card at the supermarket, or pull money from an ATM, or use PayPal on eBay, we are paying electronically. However, think of how much is involved in this. The credit card terminal connects to a remote computer across a wired data network, and is powered by electricity supplied to the supermarket. This may not seem like much, but in much of the world there is no electricity grid and certainly no telephone or data access. In fact, nearly 4 billion of the world's 7 billion people live in these areas. Not only infrastructure, but also the complete lack of developed banking institutions in these area prevent sophisticated financial services like credit or debit. This not only takes electronic payment, but also payment by check off of the table.

That leaves cash, but cash is a poor solution. An example is a government's need to send welfare payments to the poor members of it's society. Imagine the problems cash presents. Cash is attractive to thieves and corrupt officials, as there is no way to attach an audit trail to cash transactions. Paying cash to the recipients leaves them vulnerable to burglary. Obtaining and dividing up large sums of cash is a dubious and slow task, not to mention the problems transporting it. So, with the problem defined, let's take a look at the solution devised by Net 1 UEPS and why the potential for huge growth is very real.  [more]

November 13, 2008 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: CTCM

The Magic Formula's Top Dividend Stocks

November 10, 2008 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: INTC , BA , AEO

In a down economy, many money managers recommend that investors focus on dividend paying stocks. There are many attractive qualities to owning dividend paying stocks, some of which I've written about before. In a weak market, though, dividend paying stocks can be even more attractive. As stock prices fall, companies that can maintain or increase their dividend payout provide an increasing dividend yield to their stockholders. When you buy into a company that can sustain or even increase a high yield, you are effectively "locked in" to that high yield, which compounds every year, in addition to the likely capital gain of stock price appreciation.  [more]
