Housing strength, Business confidence, and Investment spread

If you thought you had seen this heading for one of my newsletters before, you’re right. In fact, you’ve read it twice, here ten years ago and here at the beginning of this year.

If you thought you had seen this heading for one of my newsletters before, you’re right. In fact, you’ve read it twice, here ten years ago and here at the beginning of this year.

In the second newsletter published more recently, I wrote “As long-time readers of my newsletters will know, I believe the housing market leads the economy. So, the latest news on the increase in residential sales and prices is a sign of the future. Most if this is good but it comes with a warning.

“The national median price rose an annual 8.1% to a new record $400,000 (up from
$382,000 in February). But over 90% of the increase in the median price came from Auckland and Canterbury which account for about half of all sales”.

Well, here we are 9 years later, and as of July 2023, the median house price in Auckland is $990,000. This is up from $560,000 10 years earlier. That means that the median Auckland property increased in value by 5.86% each year, or $43,000 on average”.

Housing strength

Yes, there’s no doubt that owning a house is a great investment on its own. However, it has another benefit for investors, as loans available through ownership of property provide for your diversification of risk and returns.

And I know that many, well probably the majority of the investors in the Opportunities we make available to our readers, are made possible for them to provide investment / asset diversification through the assistance of bank or other loans.

I mean how many of us have lots of spare cash in the bank or the wardrobe drawer?

Business Confidence

The ANZ Business Outlook Index in New Zealand climbed to its highest point since June 2021 on the back of robust export intentions and a strong rebound in employment outlook. Capacity utilization has notched the strongest level since November 2021, with expectations being less negative for profit, investment, and ease of credit. Inflation expectations and pricing intentions continued to ease slowly but steadily.

Investment spread

Well enough of that. I’m not an investment adviser.

However, TBK Capital offers you diversified investment opportunities that assist businesses and property developers to provide all of us with the services they offer.

So, here’s a couple of our current offers:

New Zealand Tea Tree Oil – Liquidity through backdoor listing

TBK Capital has identified certain NZX listed shell companies (no longer trading but listed on the New Zealand Stock Exchange) that NZ Natural Capital Partners Ltd could be backed into. The outcome of such an action would be to give New Zealand investors an early   liquidity opportunity through public trading of these shares on the NZX. This New Zealand liquidity event will be followed by a “pure profit” opportunity for New  Zealand investors in the U.S company when its shares start trading. Shares which the New Zealand investors obtained as free carry bonus shares arising from their original investment in NZ Natural Capital Partners Limited.

The outcome of such an action would be to give New Zealand investors an early liquidity opportunity through public trading on the NZX for the shares which they purchased in NZNC.

This U.S. trading will be on a registered secondary platform, followed by public trading on a U.S. stock exchange should the U.S. company successfully complete its planned IPO.
