Latest Investment Report

Tantallon Tech & Sustainability Fund, Mar 2019

The tech bounce off the 12/18 and early 1/19 lows made sense given the rate of share price collapse in 2018Q4. The rapid recovery close to AT highs has come as a surprise – a positive one for many of our holdings, a less pleasant one given our continuous high cash level.

A couple of indexes have renewed their AT highs in 2019: most notably the MSCI World Consumer Discretionary index, MSCI US Tech index as well as the SOX. In addition, the MSCI Utility index has also moved well beyond its post GFC high set in 9/17 during so far this year.

Post card from Iran

There is so little information on Iran you cannot even find the Teheran Stock Exchange on Bloomberg. Yet this is an exchange with a market cap of US170billion, turning over up to US150m/day with zero foreign participation, entirely on the back of domestic mutual fund and retail investors.

News from Ukraine

In Lv’iv on the morning of my departure I attended the funeral of one of the casualties of the “anti-terrorist operation” in Donetsk. Loudspeakers relayed polyphonic chant from impressively hirsute Orthodox clergy to a cluster of old women and an honor guard, smoking furiously and in no mood to be photographed, waiting to transport the hearse the short distance from the altar to a waiting ambulance.
