Margin Finance, Ever-Sendai: A real time case study kcchongnz

Author:   |    Publish date:


“The world is not dangerous because of those who do harm, but because of those who look at it without doing anything”. Albert Einstein

 

I have read a good article on “Who’s afraid of share margin facility?” a few days ago in the link below,

http://klse.i3investor.com/blogs/elsoft/133215.jsp

Note there is this word of a company, Elsoft, in the link above. He must be an investor in Elsoft.

At the end of the article, there is this statement below,

So, what are your thoughts about leveraging and SMF in general? Do leave a comment.”

I love this kind of writer. He encourages discussions and exchange of ideas. This is what i3investor should strive for in its forum.

With that, here are my comments.

 

The article above propagates the advantages of margin finance in magnify gains investing in stocks, and at the same time providing additional liquidity to take advantage of an opportunity when it arises.

It did mention that the magnifying gains only if the gain is more than the cost of borrowing of 5%, and that this 5% interest rate “is quite high”, he said.

It also presenting the dark side of margin finance, which it mentioned,

Leverage is a double-edge sword.

And,

Leverage is risky and often works in the opposite by magnifying your losses.”

It further elaborated that,

A costly interest rate is further exacerbated by the fact that any outstanding sum on unpaid interest will be added onto the principal amount (like an interest of a credit card). In other words, interest is compounded.”

It is all good so far, an unbiased view indeed.

And here are the conclusions of the article,

  1. Margin finance is a good debt as it allows one to generate income from it.
  2. Every investor should have a margin account

I can see the writer had made a lot of money using share margin finance (SMF) investing in Elsoft. And he is suggesting everybody to use SMF.

Nothing wrong too as this is his opinion. Everyone is entitled to his own opinion. It is probably from his own experience too.

I have written a few articles on Elsoft about two and a half years ago when it was trading at RM1.91, or an adjusted price of RM1.15 in the links below,

https://klse.i3investor.com/blogs/kcchongnz/74663.jsp

https://klse.i3investor.com/blogs/kcchongnz/74842.jsp

https://klse.i3investor.com/blogs/kcchongnz/75038.jsp

If the writer has invested in this stock two and a half years ago, he would have made a total return of about 126%, with his own money. If he were to utilize the margin finance, say at 50% leverage, after interest costs he would have made about 230%, in two and a half years!

That is the wonder of SMF.

I would be biased here that SMF is so good by using just one example investing in Elsolf. Let us be impartial a little using another example, EverSendai.

 

Why Sendai?

I chose Sendai because this stock has been heavily promoted in i3investor, and many “investors” here are very keen on it because of certain factor. It is a hot stock.

It is no point of talking about “How I made so much money investing using SMF in Sendai a year ago when it was selling at 47 sen, and I sold it at RM1.37.”

Few knew about Sendai a year ago when it was selling cheap, as no one promoting it yet anyway.

As I am a risk-averse person, and I strongly think everyone should be risk-averse in the stock market with your hard-earned money, I would talk about,

How I avoid losing big using SMF investing in Sendai”.

Well, it is just my opinion. You do not have to agree.

 

“Investing” in Sendai using SMF

I have written an article about “Banging on Sendai: Risk and Return” two weeks ago in the link below,

https://klse.i3investor.com/blogs/kcchongnz/132084.jsp

Yes, as you can see, I would never invest in Sendai at RM1.37 then. I have a lot of reservations about this company. Well, again, this is just my own opinion.

I wrote the above article to share my view on this stock because sometime in mid-July this year, there was this person who continued asking young persons to “sailing”, presumably in the stock market, using Sendai, and another stock Jaks, as examples.

“Sailang” is a colloquial word, meaning betting everything you have on a hand of cards in poker. He said if you want to drive Royce Roy, you must “sailing” Jaks and Sendai! He posted heaps of comments about it, practically flooding the whole forum, every day.

Sendai was trading at about RM1.37 then at its high.

At the close yesterday, Sendai fell to 80 sen, for a loss of 42%, in just two months!

What would happen if one followed the “sailing” call, and bought say 100000 shares of Sendai at RM1.37, or for RM137000, using SMF?

 

The Peril of SMF

Without any SMF, this investor would have lost RM57000, or 42%. With SMF of 50%, he would have lost a whopping 83%, in just two months! This has not included the set-up cost, the interest payment for the SMF, and other transaction costs.

By now, his friendly investment banker would have been calling him to top up about RM40000 to lower his leverage ratio down to 60%, as his present leverage ratio is already 86%!

 

Margin calls

Some investors may have encountered margin calls as their maintenance margin, i.e. equity/Market value of shares, has fallen below 40%. A margin call can be responded by depositing cash or marginable securities to the margin account or by liquidating existing stocks to get cash.

In margin calls, your brokerage firm has discretion as to when you are required to increase the equity in your margin account. Whether or not you have been contacted by your broker, they can take immediate action to increase the equity in your account if they decide the equity is too low and is not commensurate with the risk of your account. This means they can immediately sell out whichever securities they choose, regardless of the financial obligations for you. That can turn things into a vicious circle, especially for the illiquid stocks; the more they sell, the lower the price of the stocks, the more losses one will encountered.

Depositing more cash will subject to more risks if there is further drop of the value the stock, and hence the risk of more losses. In the short-term, it is hard to know when the bottom of the share price will be, even for some good shares.

Liquidating some positions, a great stock which you supposed to have purchased for the long-term will result in permanent accentuated, and realized losses which is very hard to recover.

 

Conclusions

The most dramatic way we protect ourselves is we don’t use leverage. We believe almost anything can happen in financial markets… [so] even smart people can get clobbered with leverage. It’s the one thing that can prevent you from playing out your hand.”      Warren Buffett

 

Leverage can magnify your gains in the stock market, but do not forget the other part of the story. Some people do make a lot of money using SMF, but many more, especially the newbies, without proper investment knowledge, and the inexperienced had lost hugely in the stock market too.

In the short-term, the market is a voting machine, but in the long term it is a weighing machine.”

There is a dark side of using SMF.

 

I declare that I have nothing against investors using SMF, and I have nothing against anybody, nor the company Eversendai.

I am not anyone's father here.....
But it is true every thing I say about sailang, margin account, super investor,
Never seen a super successful investor without sailang and margin account. Have you seen one in your long life?


I am not sure you are fit to be a father, telling your children to use margin and sailang Sendai and Jaks at RM1.37 and RM1.72 respectively. But that is none of our business.

What do you call a person without morality?

Have I seen one super investors who are successful without sailang and margin?

Warren Buffet, Seth Klarman, Walter Schloss, Howard Marks, Mohnish Pabarai, etc etc. They are worth billions of USD.

Your so-called super investor can't even smell their fart.

goldenluck16 Case in point about the risk of SMF is the former CEO of Bumi Armada..banks forced sell his shares when he couldn't top up his margin call.

You are really a talk cock king!

Warren Buffett invested successfully and made a lot of money before 1965. With the money he made, he took control of Berkshire Hathaway in 1965, and become a multi-billionaire now.

What gives you the idea that he borrowed money from friends and family to sailang Berkshire Hathaway?

Warren Buffet never tell anybody to use margin finance. Instead the first thing he told the young people in order to be successful, never use margin finance.

There are many videos and articles in the internet you can search for it.

You are right. Everybody has his own rights and preferences.

However, telling the young people and newbies to use margin to sailang stocks like Sendai and Jaks in public forums, especially you are a well-known and well-respected person in the society is definitely wrong, very wrong!

But that is not the point here. The point is,

Warren Buffet never shout everywhere in the public forums to sailang, sailang until you lost 83% in two months!

No respectable person will go around in public forums to sailang sailang sailang! Only idiots like you do.
29/09/2017 00:29

KLCI King Fully agreed:
telling the young people and newbies to use margin to sailang stocks is definitely wrong, very wrong!

I have gone through that process, fighting to resist the temptation to use margin, never dare to touch margin until having proven successful investing records & experience.

Those young kids dare to dream big using margin will find themselves in a plane flying to holland and they will be the old men never dare to touch stocks in their golden years.
29/09/2017 00:50
paperplane Well, one must know what they are doing before starting margin financing, that important! Even I studied financial analysis with one course of margin call financing module, I have hard time calculating the margin call losses as it keep changing.....Imagine lay man who buy stock for dividend only..

That is why no right or wrong, if the person take share investing as a gambling place, regardless young or old, they will also ultimately play margin.

I know one youngster, he start stock investing first day with margin! He said I win, win big, lose all, I will top up margin. That's the attitude of ppl sometimes….....Regardless who said what, who advise what, some people just stubborn and won't listen. Some ppl just has to learn their own way. They like to do margin for max loss or win, this their own decision. Nothing much we can do to help these type people.
29/09/2017 00:51

3iii Warren Buffett is the world's greatest investor. He is truly very good and teaches a lot.

What has Warren Buffett shared on using margins or leverage in investing?

He advises against these. His reasonings are sound. If you are already rich, you do not need to employ these exposing yourself to the uneccesary risk of suddenly being poor should events go against your judgement. Grow richer slowly rather than risking becoming poor quickly. On the other hand, if you are not so rich or even poor, you have even more reasons to avoid margins and leverage.
29/09/2017 07:47
3iii Warren Buffett did borrow money to invest in his career. These situations involved arbitrages.

Jay at the end of the day it boils down to risk management. risk management does not mean don't take risk, it means taking sensible and profitable risk. say a few years ago if you use margin to trade the SPAC arbitrage, pay 5% interest but earn a high probability annualised return of >10%, that is good risk taking. if you use margin to follow hot stock tips then good luck.
29/09/2017 09:54
GGecko i used to have a margin account about 15 years ago. but i got burnt very badly with margin calls to the extent of having to mortgage my property. subsequently, stop using margin after that. now everything is cash. 25% return YTD for 2017. can sleep well at nite
29/09/2017 09:58
Jay for risk management, key question is not how much will I earn if it goes up. the right question is how likely will it go down, and how my position would be affected. if you don't have an answer, you are better off without margin
29/09/2017 09:58

29/09/2017 12:15
mamakspecial Investment bankers themselves want you guys to play margin la..if not how to pay money to their client's trading account.

If I remember correctly Buffet transform the then ailing textile company Berkshire and MANAGE it (not just invest and buy it) and diversify the business into today's empire.

My view is that Malaysia is lacking quality companies to invest in. Previously USD strong, all those export stock esp tech and testing equipment company goes up, now MYR slowly going back up, all retreating. Then comes Aluminium price went up, only PMETAL stock doing well, others are just ok ok. Then now comes Steel price went up, SSTEEL, MASTEEL and others goreng up but most of their financials not really doing that well. Then goreng Hibiscus from oil up....oil down goreng PETRONM and Hengyuan..lol...

The big thing in malaysia now is the construction of the MRT and HSR and East Coast rail. Gadang big player..but no movement..only GKENT can see movement.


sigh..any1 can share how to play ?

bursagoinglong After reading some of the comments in this article, as the writer of "Who is afraid of share margin facility": http://klse.i3investor.com/blogs/elsoft/133215.jsp I would like to emphasis that the purpose of the article is to disseminate the workings of a share margin facility.

Even if the article suggests that everyone should get a share margin facility, some may have over thought that statement to mean that margin play should be part and parcel of one's investment. That is simply not how it was said.

This is an except of my article:

"Hence, our stance is that every investor should have a margin account even if there is no impending need for it yet. Like substituted soccer players, you can keep them on the sideline and only put them to play when it is necessary to do so."

It is my intention that a share margin facility be kept at the SIDELINE and to be used when NECESSARY (for example, when the market is recovering from a crash).

Hope that clears the air.

PlsGiveBonus Robots have been running the US stock market, and the government is finally taking control
Shelly Banjo March 25, 2015
Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, Tuesday, March 24, 2015. U.S. stocks were mixed in early trading Tuesday, as investors assessed the latest news on consumer prices and some company earnings.
Humans have to follow rules, why not robots, too? (AP Photo/Richard Drew)
High-speed frequency traders, which use computer algorithms to trade stocks milliseconds faster than competitors with little human intervention, are about to come under much more scrutiny, if the US Securities and Exchange Commission gets its way.
The firms have come under fire for manipulating the stock market, making it less transparent, more volatile, and an impossible place for mom and pop investors to get a fair shake. The practice gained broad attention with last year’s publication of the Michael Lewis book Flash Boys.
Under an SEC plan proposed on March 25, the agency said it would now require high-speed trading firms to follow the same rules as other financial firms, namely registering with and opening their books to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the Wall Street regulatory agency also known as FINRA. Currently, high-speed traders that conduct business for their own accounts aren’t required to register with FINRA, meaning they can’t be traced back to, say, a large volume of suspicious trades.
Rules overseeing broker dealers were made at a “time when our equity market structure was dominated by floor-based exchanges that could readily regulate all of their members’ trading activity,” SEC chair Mary Jo White said in a public statement about the proposed rules.
“That is not our market today. Trading is now dominated by computer algorithms,” she said, noting that prop trading firms now account for nearly half of all orders sent to alternative trading systems.

It could take a while for the rules to come into effect, as the SEC will have to solicit feedback from market participants and fine-tune any new regulations. There is also always the fear of regulatory overreach.
But the decision to move forward on changing the rules marks a stark recognition that the world of Wall Street has drastically changed in the past decade, and the regulations surrounding market structure have fallen incredibly far behind.

PlsGiveBonus I made $10,000+ in Crypto the last month without investing a single penny. Crying tears of Joy.

So, about a month ago, while browsing the bitcointalk forums, I stumbled over a chest of buried treasure. While soaking up more crypto knowledge, I stumbled upon the post about a free airdrop. I figured meh...what the heck, I have nothing to lose, sure ill join your airdrop DeepOnion. I'll support your coin and your mission...It took no effort but to add a signature code, and continue doing what I was already doing on the forums.

So fast forward...a month. And here I am absolutely thrilled. I originally thought the DeepOnion coin would end up being some kind of worthless shitcoin. But oh behold. Here I am one month later, and after recieving three air drops of coins. I am now sitting upon a small fortune. After three weeks of participating, I have 1142.13 Onions. The DeepOnion community has grown to be incredibly devoted due to the terms the Dev team created in regards to the airdrop. As long as a participant contributes to the growth of the community, they are handsomely rewarded.

Screenshot 2017-08-27 23.30.16.png

I just tonight decided to check to see what my free airdrop Onions were worth, and low and behold. My Onions are for more valuable than I ever would have thought. I checked Coinmarketcap.com tonight, and take a look at this....

Screenshot 2017-08-27 23.28.08.png

My Deeponions which cost me nothing but three weeks of supporting the community are now worth $2638 USD. This is literally after only 3 weeks of receiving air-dropped coins. I thank the developers for creating such an incredible opportunity and such a fair method of dispersing the coins.

This is just one of the two goldmines that I stumbled upon. The other has caused me to make $8000 USD with just a weekend of my time, zero investment (Hint it involved ICO's). If you would like to learn more about how to participate in the DeepOnion airdrop, and learn about the other awesome opportunities in crypto space. Feel free to follow me. I plan on writing more articles going further into detail about how to participate in this airdrop, and also discussing the other method that generated over $8000 USD with just a weekend of my time.

PlsGiveBonus What is a crypto airdrop?
A​ ​crypto airdrop​ ​is​ ​when​ ​a​ ​blockchain project distribute​s ​free​ ​tokens or​ ​coins ​to​ ​the​ crypto ​community.

To​ ​be​ ​a​ ​recipient​ ​of​ ​an​ crypto ​airdrop often​ ​the​ ​only​ ​requirement​ ​is​ ​that​ ​you​ ​have​ ​coins from the relevant blockchain stored​ ​in​ ​your​ ​wallet. Examples of this format of airdrops are Byteball, Stellar lumens and OmiseGo.

Other crypto airdrops require social media posts or you need to contact a member of the team on the bitcointalk forum.

The​ ​format​ ​of​ ​these​ crypto ​giveaways​ ​is​ ​usually​ ​like​ ​this:​ ​At​ ​a​ ​pre-announced​ ​time​ ​the​ ​project​ ​behind the​ ​event​ ​will​ ​take​ ​a​ ​”snapshot” ​of​ ​the​ ​blockchain,​ ​and​ ​anyone​ ​holding​ ​Ether or Bitcoin​ ​at​ ​that​ ​point​ ​will​ ​receive​ ​a certain number​ ​of​ ​free​ ​tokens.​ ​This can also be done on other blockchains, but Ethereum and Bitcoin are the most used for this airdrop format.

Another possible way to get free crypto is a faucet. This means you get a small amount of free crypto for a longer period of time. An example of this one is a crypto wallet that drops Bitcoin, NEO, Litecoin, Dash € more every day, click here to check this out.
What do I need to do to get my free crypto?
Every airdrop has a different set of rules. We suggest you make a bitcointalk forum account to be able to apply for the airdrops that require contacting a team member (usually PM). Ethereum Dark airdrop is a good example for this format. Every person that wanted to apply for this ETHd airdrop had to PM the developer with his ETHd address to get the tokens. We suggest to post once in a while, often bitcointalk "newbies" are rejected for the airdrop.

Some new airdrops require retweets on twitter, usually you need a minimum amount of followers, so make sure you have active social media accounts to be eligible for these free crypto tokens.

Check your wallets regularly to see if you received surprise airdrops. Platforms like Waves or Komodo have delivered airdrops for Waves or Komodo holders without any announcement.

Always make sure you own the private keys to your coins & tokens to receive airdrops based on Bitcoin or Ethereum (or other) blockchain snapshots. However NEVER post your private keys to receive an airdrop! Be aware of scams, if you give away your private keys your coins will be stolen! We do our best to filter out all the scams, but it is possible one might slip through our research.

If​ ​you​ ​are​ ​an​ ​investor​ ​holding​ ​a​ ​diverse​ ​portfolio​ ​of​ ​coins​ ​you​ ​are​ ​likely​ ​to​​ be ​receiving​ ​more​ ​and​ ​more free​ crypto ​as​ ​this​ ​concept​ ​keeps​ ​gaining​ ​popularity.

Why would blockchain projects give away free tokens?
When​ ​something​ ​is​ ​free​ ​you’re​ ​the​ ​product

To raise awereness for their project/token they airdrop free crypto to the crypto community. It's a great way to widely distribute the tokens to create a community for it. It is free advertising, it brings people to your project that otherwise would not have owned or heard about it. It could lead to token price appreciation, which is probably the goal for these blockchain projects.

Looking​ ​forward,​ ​possible​ crypto ​airdrop​ ​developments​ ​could​ ​be​ ​projects​ ​starting​ ​to​ ​gift​ ​tokens​ ​to​ ​users​ ​who hold​ ​tokens​ ​in​ ​projects​ ​that​ ​overlap​ ​or​ ​have​ ​some​ ​synergy​ ​with​ ​their​ ​own.​ ​We​ ​could​ ​also​ ​see​ ​projects encouraging​ ​other​ ​projects​ ​to​ ​airdrop​ ​to​ ​their​ ​token​ ​owners​ ​and​ ​receiving​ ​some​ ​benefit​ ​in​ ​return. Like we already see happening at the Ethereum, Waves, NXT & Komodo platforms.

Where can I sell my airdropped crypto?
So now you have free crypto, what do you do? Many coins that do airdrops are PRE-ICO or just finished their ICO. This often means it is not traded yet on the bigger exchanges. You can check out our exchange page to see where you can best sell your crypto airdrops click here

We suggest you make an account at all exchanges we listed so you can easily sell and receive your crypto airdrops.

We hope you receive as many airdrops as possible and that they increase in value over time. Many projects that are now top 40 coins have done airdrops in their early stages, like NEM, DECRED & Ripple. You don't need to immediatly sell your free crypto, there is nothing wrong with being a HODLer.
