We’re being a little dramatic, we know. Last week’s note stressing the closeness to the recessionary precipice on which Australia currently stands is still being circulated and we still stand behind it. (The note, not the precipice)
We, as a country, are in real trouble and the market is screaming that at us as well.

“The year 1916 was cursed; 1917 will surely be better”
Apparently this was a quote from Tsar Nicholas II’s diary. Whilst there is some debate as to the origin and authenticity of the quote I’m happy to use it here regardless. Please keep it, Brexit & Trump in mind while you read on as we present to you VFS Group Investment Committee’s “French Scenarios.” (Enjoy)

Ah, March for the Australian investor. What a beautiful time to be in the markets. Just close enough to the New Year for the Christmas rally to be a fond memory and just far enough away from the “Sell In May & Go Away” crowd to start getting on their soapbox.

To tee off there’s been some serious rumblings regarding Harvey Norman this week. We all would have read about it and/or heard about the recent batch of bad news. Anyone who doesn’t know my thoughts on Harvey’s I ask you to please read my last seven months of work on the space. Harvey Norman is a dead man walking even without the alleged accounting scandal & ASIC investigation hanging over their head.
