My portfolio for analysis

I don’t post here, a midget among giants, I just read and watch and learn. But I want to ask of you all this one time to comment on my portfolio. My holdings largest to least.

  1. UBNT 15.5%
  2. VALE 14.3%
  3. RIG 13.7%
  4. BMW 13.6
  5. BOX 13%
  6. BLACK ROCK T 12%
  7. AMZA 7.4%
  8. HUB 5.8%
  9. SHOP 3.5%
  10. THO 1.2%
    I can’t articulate or decipher the numbers like most of you but in my own words here is why I own these.

UBNT based on following this board. I like the growth potential and disruptive nature of Peras company and his 70% ownership

VALE cyclical explosion waiting to happen. Pays a nice 4% dividend that was closer to 8% pre downturn and a low 7 PE

RIG Best in class of a severely beaten down group? Savvy management outwits bankrupting peers. Will return to 7% range divvys as offshore recovers. PE 5.5 In my opinion $100 dollar oil quintuples share price in 3 years.

BMS.Bemis company. My employer. Has an incredible track record of steady even handed growth and 34 years of increasing dividends. Nothing flashy it just soldiers on year after year while aquireing smaller players globally

BLX A Latin American bank with a solid 5.62% dividend. Small cap under a million with smaller PE than big banks at 12.3 It should perform and grow well in a central and South American recovery.

    The least worst option of horrible choices available in my company 401(k) plan

  2. AMZA massive 20% div no more no less

  3. HUB based off board input and growth potential.

  4. SHOP same as above.

  5. TGP what can I say? I oil and gas and low p.e. dividend payers that I believe will have explosive growth in an oil recovery.

I plan to use my dividends to fund new purchases of growth stocks on dips, namely HUB and SHOP. I also have an eye on Talend and Square. I lost a small fortune in chasing FCEL over the years and sold it and VEOEY recently. FCEL due to its crushing blow with the loss of a giant fuel cell project and VEOEY due to its high valuations and a less environmental friendly government.

I would very much appreciate any constructive criticisms and advice on strategy. Thanks, Tim.


Ok just to help Tim and responders to this thread along…

Out and out commodities play with one of the giants. Can’t argue but not mega growth right now with the busted supercycle thesis.

  1. RIG 13.7% - Transocean - $3.53BN market cap
    Transocean Ltd., together with its subsidiaries, provides offshore contract drilling services for oil and gas wells worldwide. The company primarily offers deepwater and harsh environment drilling services.

The company serves government-controlled oil companies and independent oil companies. Transocean Ltd. was founded in 1953 and is based in Vernier, Switzerland.

They are the daddy in the space - but crikey - it isn’t half cyclical and it is possible Electric and onshore Shale and gas has crimped deep see drilling forever. But maybe not and that’s what makes the cycle.

  1. BMW 13.6 - (actually BMS) - Bemis Company, Inc - $4.1BN market cap
    Bemis Company, Inc. manufactures and sells packaging products. It operates through two segments, U.S. Packaging and Global Packaging.

Bag Company and changed its name to Bemis Company, Inc. in 1965. Bemis Company, Inc. was founded in 1858 and is based in Neenah, Wisconsin.

Could do well if it ties itself to the special high value packaging and internet ecommerce segments.

  1. BLX 13% - Box inc - $1.08BN market cap
    Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior, S.A., a multinational bank, primarily engages in the financing of foreign trade in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior, S.A. was founded in 1977 and is headquartered in Panama City, the Republic of Panama.

Ok I have heard of this and TMF and a few members have recommended it. I was interested myself - an undervalued banking play in Latin America going through a trade boom, a new Panama canal widening and located in a stable jurisdiction. I went completely off the idea when the Panama papers were published and my jurisdiction thesis went out the window. Trump’s NAFTA and Mexican wall stance doesn’t fill me with confidence in this one.

  1. BLACK ROCK T 12% - dunno is this the Blackrock iShares U.S. Treasury Bond ETF - $4BN net assets?

Not sure I can comment on this.

  1. AMZA 7.4% - InfraCap MLP ETF - $368Mn net assets
    The investment seeks total return primarily through investments in equity securities of publicly traded master limited partnerships and limited liability companies taxed as partnerships (“MLPs”). Under normal market conditions, the fund will invest not less than 80% of its assets in equity securities of MLPs in the energy infrastructure sector. It is non-diversified.

Buyandwin will love this one. I can understand how it is 20% yield now - infrastructure seems to have gone off the boil with the Trump policy programme slowdown.

  1. HUBS 5.8% - HubSpot - $2.73BN market cap
    You know this one too…

I like these guys and hold myself but be very careful with online marketing - remember FUEL? If it turns against them they are dead.

  1. SHOP 3.5% - Shopify - $9.8BN market cap

The company was formerly known as Jaded Pixel Technologies Inc. and changed its name to Shopify Inc. in November 2011. Shopify Inc. was founded in 2004 and is headquartered in Ottawa, Canada.

Yep nice choice - I hold myself.

  1. TGP 1.2% - Teekay LNG Partners (unless you meant THO as in Thor Industries)
    Teekay LNG Partners L.P. provides marine transportation services for liquefied natural gas (LNG), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), and crude oil worldwide. The company operates through two segments, Liquefied Gas and Conventional Tanker.

Teekay LNG Partners L.P. was founded in 2004 and is based in Hamilton, Bermuda.

I rate these guys - they are class in their industry. Depending on when you got in you will have done very well or very badly. This is dramatically cyclical though. It isn’t really tied to oil recovery as much as maybe shipping recovery. You should reach out to Hohum on the shipping board… for help on this. LNG should do better than oil and coal. The only downside is price of gas which used to mirror oil now trades at a discount to oil.



Crikey! And thank you for correcting exposing and generally better informing others on my own port lol!

UBNT you all know and is from my exposure only because its m6 largest position and I would like cash to fill in .y smaller spots or add a new ticker

VALE is a giant iron ore play that seems beneath all radar. MF has like 32 posts o n it’s whole VALE board even tho it is a 42 million dollar company

RIG is aka transocean offshore I like that it will be a last player sta ding in deepwater but it’s real pop pop potential lies in geo politics. Hard for ISIS or any other terror group to get offshore and disrupt supply. A lack Sean event could catapult them term dously

BMS DAMN SPELL CHECK IS indeed Bemis a large plastics packaging company that does well in good times and better in hard times when people eat more at home.

AMZA indeed mlp energy play in oil field services that should do well in any energy recovery especially shale fields but traditional wells also.

TGP Teekay partners a LPG transport company

The oil fields in all their many company and production forms have been neglected for years I believe. And in all their forms once money starts to flow there is great potential.
