葡萄并非如此酸

以前我写过关于需要定期积累资产或资金,以确保您在退休后资金丰厚。现在,我不打算尝试,教你如何赚股市的钱,比我有更多经验的专业人员会教你如何做。此外,在过去数周的市场上,我最终宣泄我的挫折,而不是传授任何有用的意见。 不,我打算介绍一种资产类别,您可以享受,即使它并不会让你拥有可观的利润,这是投资级葡萄酒。一个我意外进入的资产类,但给我现金回报,现金净回报从2009年9月起超过连续15个月有40%左右。 在你急着去易购抢着买货架上的大多数葡萄酒前,让我们先定义一下,什么是作为投资级的葡萄酒类。 投资级葡萄酒市场90%来自法国的波尔多,而且也只是集中于几个城堡中精选的第一和第二级别。您不能在商店购买这些葡萄酒;它通常是通过专业经纪人和拍卖行购买的,也就是在这里,我们遇到的第一个真正风险是。葡萄酒,作为一个资产类别,是一个不规范的市场,因为金钱所涉及的金额就可以吸引一些非常危险的字符。买方须提防。 第一个危险点是经纪人,为了理解这一点,我将解释您作为葡萄酒投资者,在食物链中身在何处。一种投资级葡萄酒的情况是,一瓶不到十年的葡萄酒可以花费在1,000英镑和20,000英镑之间。而经纪人承担不起持有存货,而你的角色就是持有它,直到最终向消费者销售。 经纪人总是要求你预先支付,不要忘记你不会实际拥有(我们会接下来更多地探讨这个问题),所以你可能不知道你手上是否拿有你已支付的物品,直到您尝试出售。但可悲的是,在过去几年中,有几起经纪人没有实际购买葡萄酒的事件,只是简单地在客户之间提单和卖单。 是的,他们可以得到起诉,但你什么也得不到。我建议你​​订阅为数不多的高端葡萄酒杂志之一; 我本人阅读Decanter杂志,并阅读其新闻网页。他们的网站和各种葡萄酒论坛是一个对有信誉的经纪研究的良好来源。 风险的第二个方面是假冒,甚至有一些高档餐馆为了使诈骗更容易,造假卖空瓶的故事。这就是需要使用一个好的经纪人的另一个原因。 第三个风险是存储。葡萄酒是真正地依赖于储存条件的,这取决于它是如何被保存的。专业存储债券是只有每件7-10英镑左右,每年保险通常是由有信誉的vinoteques所从事。专业的存储也保持葡萄酒的原产地,因为你可以证明,葡萄酒已被妥善保管,因此,当你销售它时,减少了变质的风险。 所以,你怎么挑选您的葡萄酒呢?第一步是订阅丽芙- EX,这是一个跟踪所有的拍卖价格,及对于投资级葡萄酒的拍卖监测服务。每年只要花费二十五英镑,你就可得到非专业的服务选项,你可以获得其葡萄酒和业绩的数据库,一个虚拟的地窖和对于其价值的月度报告。钱花得很值。 挑选你的经纪人,并让他知道你的预算,对于初学者,你需要至少花费一万英镑,他会告诉你他有什么可以帮助你的。然后检查丽芙- EX的图表,阅读帕克的复习笔记(帕克是该行业的评分标准),并在任何酒论坛上查询。你有3到5天的时间来决定,而如果你准备回答经纪人时,酒已经卖掉了,也不要失望。就像我说的投资级葡萄酒不是用卡车来装的。经纪人只有在得到您的支票时,他才会为您预留储存酒。 收费是另一个有趣的话题。我使用的一个经纪人收取5%的管理费,其中包括5年的存储和当我退出时,他的销售佣金。我现在的经纪人不收取任何费用,但标记他传递的产品。同样,他不收取销售佣金,但当我想卖时,让我报价。当然,我会比较在丽芙- EX上的最新价格数据,这样我可以看到他收取多少的利润。对于我来说,没有佣金,使回报的计算更加透明。 到目前为止,这些描述似乎缺乏通常与优质葡萄酒相关的激情。我不会做出任何道歉; 实际上,我本人是一个爱喝啤酒的人,但还有希望。我加入无形价值的方式主要是围绕着我四个孩子的诞生年份来购买可能上涨的葡萄酒。 我观察我购买成的两个酒庄,更便宜的酒庄给了我更大的回报率。因此,与其说用8,000英镑买一家酒庄,不如说我将用同样数额购买五个酒庄。一家会在不久卖掉;另外三家,我会在退休时卖掉;而第五家,我会看看情况而言。 因此,市场在哪里?对于我来说,最大的机遇和最大的风险,来自远东,尤其是中国。这是中国的需求,让我在我2003年的拉菲洛希尔回报上,获取年率50%,但你们那些已经学过经济学的人都知道,随着时间的推移,不断变化的需求曲线会导致供给曲线移动,因为有新进入者加入市场,并在市场移动时,纠正市场移动的曲线。 在供给方面,我们已经看到了中国企业开始购买法国酒庄,不只是使他们可以把所有生产的葡萄酒运往中国,而且还可掌握所需的知识,使得这些优质葡萄酒成长在中国。到目前为止,只有一家主要酒庄已经被收购了,也许法国人将干涉,并宣布葡萄酒作为国家资产的战略意义。而法国的葡萄酒要比酸奶更有名气。在此,我怀疑中国将仍然喜欢购买真正的葡萄酒,而不是购买有品牌荣誉的,在中国本地生产的仿冒品,让我们看着吧! 另一个风险是西方市场的权利被剥夺。有一份在6月份的报告,,由罗伯特 - 帕克写道,称法国人着迷于他们价值观的兴起,他们宣布了太多的佳酿所有权。在过去10年中,已经有八个此类宣布。 帕克的观点,是迅速崛起的投资级葡萄酒的切入点,鼓励传统的买家到别处寻找。这可能是针对消费者的情况,但我认为,从中期投资的角度来看,它并无所谓。从长远来看,如果中国的购买习惯转向自己的国产葡萄酒,同样的质量,那么你已经有了一个问题,这个时候,消费者销售点的价格,将对于西方的钱包来说过高了。 所以看中了一个酒?未来10年,我会坚持购买它,届时,我的孩子们都将年满18岁,我认为,只要在中国风险真的结晶前,得到市场。那你会得到一些很好的大约在债券方面,二次增长少于1000英镑左右的利益,如果可以,尝试一下吧! 干杯/敬礼 Neil Crook

MOODY’s Investors Service have cut Japan’s credit rating by one step to Aa3 with a stable outlook, saying "weak" prospects for growth will make it difficult for the government to rein in the world’s largest public debt burden. Japan’s public debt is projected to reach 219% of gross domestic product next year even before accounting for borrowing to fund reconstruction after the March 11 earthquake, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. GREECE could end up using its own land as collateral for its bailout package as part of plans under discussion between Eurozone governments. As Finland threatened to quit the bailout programme if its request for collateral was turned down, ministers considered asking Greece to put up non-cash reserves such as gold, industrial assets and even real estate. BRITAIN’S manufacturing sector has held up surprisingly well this month, the CBI claimed in its survey for August. "Manufacturing order books are holding up, and expectations for output growth are above their historical average,…

The ECB reduced its bond purchases last week to 14.3bn from 22bn a week earlier, scaling back its market intervention after its first bout of buying helped ease Italian and Spanish debt. German central bankers sharpened their criticism of the Eurozone's bond buying policy, warning that the stability efforts were in danger of increasing states’ tendency to build up debts and will weaken incentives for pursuing orderly fiscal policies. The criticism puts further pressure on German chancellor Angela Merkel, who is trying to drum up support for the bond-buying scheme. CHINA has urged the Eurozone to take drastic action to restore confidence in its economy to prevent the "Black Death" of its sovereign debt crisis from damaging the world economy. Chinese state media warned that the bloc’s surging debt costs will lead to a decline in demand for exports that will have a "far-reaching impact" on China’s real economy and further afield. MARKETS: EUROPEAN stocks rose 0.8% on Monday in thin trade, led by oil…

GERMAN Chancellor Angela Merkel attempted to shut the door on common euro-area bonds as a means to solve the debt crisis, saying that she won’t let financial markets dictate policy. While common borrowing might arrive at some point in the distant future, bringing in euro bonds at this time would further undermine economic stability and so they "are not the answer right now", said Merkel. RECORD-low yields on U.S. treasuries show that traders expect Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke to signal, as soon as this week, that the central bank will begin a third round of asset purchases to boost the economy, a scenario the world’s biggest bond dealers said is unlikely. MARKETS: JAPAN’S Topix index dropped for a fourth day, falling to its lowest level in more than two years, as exports slid on concern global economic growth is slowing. The Topix slipped 0.4% as of 1:27pm in Tokyo. The Nikkei 225 was little changed after rising as much as 0.4%. THE SHANGHAI Composite…

Good Technology

Technologie wordt vaak niet gebruikt op de manier waarop het origineel bedoelt was. Sms’en op mobiele telefoons was een bijproduct, terwijl de meeste mensen deze functie nu onvervangbaar vinden. De wet van de onbedoelde consequenties betekent dat het medium het bericht kan zijn, maar technologie verandert en past zich aan op onvoorspelbare manieren. Het enige waar we zeker van kunnen zijn, is dat het nu sneller verandert dan ooit te voren. De huidige onbetwiste koning van de technologie is Apple. Het bedrijf heeft recentelijk recordwinsten gepubliceerd; verkoopcijfers van de iPhone en iPad zijn meer dan verdubbeld, wat heeft bijgedragen aan een netto winst van $7,13 biljoen en een omzet van $28,6 biljoen (dit alles in het tweede kwartaal van 2011). In deze drie maanden heeft Apple meer dan 20 miljoen iPhones en 9,25 miljoen iPads verkocht. Apple is erin geslaagd aantrekkelijke en redelijk betaalbare gadgets te produceren. Mobiele telefoons nemen meedogenloos de plaats in van andere producten; alle mobieltjes hebben tegenwoordig een camera, een klok…
