Update on the VW Porsche Saga

I have written quite a bit about the VW Porsche saga. Instead of linking to that stuff I just mention what my "ratings" have been for the stocks involved (I leave out Porsche common shares.). My first player portefeuille6 (formerly known as hansschmidt, no, not my real name, hehe ...) made an "underperform" call on VOW.DE when the ADRs (VLKAY.PK) where at $228.75, ended that call when they were at $68.10, restarted the call at $80.30. Today I ended that call at $41.45.

Porsche preferred shares (PAH3.DE (DE for Xetra)) and VW preferred shares (VOW.DE) are "not currently ratable" in the "caps" game (grrrrrrrr ...). But hey, I have my list, so here are the corresponding calls.

The point of this post is to brag (hehe ...) and more importantly to warn that the easy money may have already been made. By the way, a lot of "easy" money was lost in the VW short squeeze. Ask some hedge funds about it, hehe ...

By the way, a friend of mine did the trades for one fund that lost a little over EUR 100 million in the VW short squeeze. Well, he did not come up with that "great strategy", he just executed the trades, so not his fault ...

Australian Companies Raise Record $72 Billion in FY09

By Malcolm Scott

July 6 (Bloomberg) -- Australian-listed companies raised a record A$90 billion ($71.6 billion) in capital in the year to June 30 as firms from Macquarie Group Ltd. to Mirvac Group boosted balance sheets damaged by the global financial crisis.

Capital-raising in the 12-month period comprised initial raisings of A$1.9 billion, down 83 percent from the previous year, and secondary share sales of A$88.1 billion, up 74 percent, according to a statement from exchange operator ASX Ltd. today. The total eclipsed the previous record of A$77.9 billion raised in the year to June 30, 2007.

“Significant secondary capital raising activity continued to flow as companies took advantage of strong demand for stock and the underlying efficiency of the capital raising process in Australia,” the exchange operator said in the statement.

Financial firms including Macquarie, property companies such as Mirvac, and raw-material producers including Alumina Ltd. were been among companies that replenished balance sheets with share sales. The offerings were snapped up by pension funds that found themselves short on equities after the market’s slump.

Investors were sitting on about A$200 billion in cash at the end of May, about a fifth of the local stock market’s total value, according to estimates from AMP Ltd.
