LEBANON, Mo. (KY3/Mo. Dept. of Conservation press release) – Visitors to Bennett Spring State Park will soon notice the sights and sounds of heavy machinery at work in the park. This work is the first phase of a renovation project at the Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) Bennett Spring Hatchery that will ensure that one of Missouri’s most popular trout parks remains a premier destination for family fishing fun.

MDC is working with HDR Engineering Inc. on a multi-year, $20 million project that will repair or replace portions of the hatchery’s aging infrastructure. This project will include new technologies that will improve fish production and will repair or replace parts of the hatchery that are either no longer working or are working poorly due to age.

Phase I of the project is ongoing and includes several activities in the park that are part of field investigations. Projects in this phase include surveying, flow monitoring, geotechnical surveys, locating utility lines and development of a groundwater test well.

What visitors to Bennett Spring will notice most during this early stage is machine noise and periodic restricted access to some parts of the park. MDC’s consultant will drill a groundwater test well at the north end of the hatchery (near Bennett Spring State Park Lodge). During drilling and well testing activities, the park road to the campground will be restricted to one lane but will remain open to through traffic. Drilling activities have already begun and will be completed by the end of January. Well testing follows the drilling process and is scheduled to be completed in February.

After the field investigations are completed, the consultant will begin the design in Phase II. This phase will have limited impact on state park activity.

Phase III will be the construction phase. Suggested improvements for the hatchery are a new inlet structure, reconstruction of some channels, pipe improvements and numerous upgrades that will protect the hatchery from flood events and improve fish production ability. The MDC hatchery office, shop and feed storage facilities will also be upgraded.

The construction phase is scheduled to begin in 2023 and is expected to last two years. There may be temporary restrictions on fishing access in parts of the creek during construction. The MDC will work with Bennett Spring State Park staff to share with the public the impact construction may have on the park.

“These renovations will breathe new life into our aging hatchery, improve safety for hatchery staff and provide more security for our trout,” said MDC Bennett Spring Hatchery Manager Ben Havens. “The use of new technology will allow us to raise high quality fish that the public can enjoy for many years to come.”

When the construction phase begins, the hatchery will not be in operation. Available fish will be moved to the MDC hatcheries in Shepherd of the Hills, Montauk and Roaring River during this time. Although the hatchery is closed during the construction phase of the renovation project, anglers will not see any changes to existing seasons. Fish shipped from other MDC hatcheries are stored at Bennett Spring daily during the regular season. The winter catch-and-release season will not be affected.

“The hatchery crew is very committed to providing a quality fishing experience for all visitors to Bennett Spring and we greatly appreciate the support of the public as we work on these improvements to establish Bennett Spring as a premier trout fishing destination expand,” said Havens.

Up to a million trout are raised from egg to seedling annually at the Bennett Spring Hatchery, and the hatchery stocks 350,000 12 ½-inches in the creek each season. (Some of the fish raised at the hatchery are raised elsewhere in the state.) However, the benefits of these improvements extend beyond improving fish production processes at Bennett Spring Hatchery. To understand the true meaning of the infrastructure improvements, consider the more than 140,000 people who fish at Bennett Spring each year, the thousands of visitors the park receives, and the economic impact all of these activities have in terms of money spent on meals, shelter, gas, etc. Data from the US Fish and Wildlife Service shows that money spent on trout fishing in Missouri generates more than $187 million in economic impact each year.

Trout fishing at Bennett Spring has a history dating back to the early 1900’s. MDC manages the hatchery and trout fishery at Bennett Spring State Park. The state park facilities are managed by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

Yields Gain Momentum at Weichai Power (HKG:2338) https://ms-factory.biz/yields-gain-momentum-at-weichai-power-hkg2338/ Thu, 13 Jan 2022 00:22:22 +0000 https://ms-factory.biz/yields-gain-momentum-at-weichai-power-hkg2338/ When looking for a multibagger, there are a few things to look out for.

When looking for a multibagger, there are a few things to look out for. First we want to identify a growing one return on the capital employed (ROCE) and then a constantly increasing one at the same time base of the capital employed. Ultimately, this shows that this is a company that reinvests profits with increasing returns. Speaking of which, we’ve noticed some great changes in Weichai Powers (HKG:2338) ROI, so let’s take a look.

Understand return on capital employed (ROCE).

For those unsure what ROCE is, it measures the amount of pre-tax profit a company can generate from the capital employed in its business. The formula for this calculation on Weichai Power is:

Return on Capital Employed = Earnings Before Interest and Tax (EBIT) ÷ (Total Assets – Current Liabilities)

0.079 = CN¥13b ÷ (CN¥293b – CN¥131b) (Based on the last twelve months ended September 2021).

Because of this, Weichai Power has a ROCE of 7.9%. After all, that’s a low yield, below the industry average of 10.0%.

Check out our latest analysis for Weichai Power

SEHK:2338 Return on Capital Employed 13 Jan 2022

In the chart above, we compared Weichai Power’s past ROCE to its past performance, but the future is arguably more important. If you’re interested, you can check out the forecasts from Weichai Power analysts here for free.

What can we tell from Weichai Power’s ROCE trend?

While not a high ROCE in absolute terms, it’s encouraging to see that it’s moving in the right direction. The numbers show that the return on capital employed has grown significantly to 7.9% over the past five years. The company is effectively making more money per dollar of capital employed, and it’s worth noting that the amount of capital has also increased by 102%. So we’re very inspired by what we’re seeing at Weichai Power, thanks to its ability to reinvest capital profitably.

That being said, it’s important to note that Weichai Power has a current debt to total assets ratio of 45%, which we’d think is pretty high. This can pose some risks as the company basically operates with a fairly large reliance on its suppliers or other short-term creditors. Ideally we would like to see this reduction as it would mean less risky commitments.

Our look at Weichai Power’s ROCE

In summary, Weichai Power has proven that it can reinvest in the business and generate higher returns on invested capital, which is great. With the stock returning a staggering 184% to shareholders over the past five years, it looks like investors are recognizing those shifts. That being said, we still believe the promising fundamentals mean the company deserves further due diligence.

What is behind the weakness of the technology … the right way to navigate it … a “quality orientation” is crucial for all portfolios today

As I write on Monday morning, the tech pain continues.

Let’s do a quick MBA 101 to make sure we’re all on the same page with what drives it.

In theory, the value of a stock is equal to the net present value of a company’s future cash flows plus the value of its assets according to the company’s balance sheet.

To determine this “net present value of future cash flows”, we use a discount rate. This discount rate usually correlates with the prevailing bond yields.

The higher the returns, the higher the discount rate. Mathematically, a higher interest rate decreases the present value of future cash flows.

Technology growth stocks get the majority of their value from those future cash flows (rather than tons of hard assets like machines on their balance sheets).

So the higher the returns and the higher the discount rate, the lower the “net present value” of growth stocks.

And that translates into lower stock prices for technology companies.

If we follow these breadcrumbs it will lead us back to bond yields.

*** The recent spike in yields was triggered by the Fed’s minutes of its December monetary policy meeting released last week

Those minutes sounded more restrictive than some investors expected. Many believe there will be a rate hike as early as March.

This fear accelerated the rise in 10-year government bond yields that began in late summer. The rate of return has just topped 1.8%, which is a new high from the pandemic era.

As you can see below, the yield is up 42% since August. About 16% of that surge has occurred in 2022 so far.

Source: StockCharts.com

Therefore, higher bond yields typically translate into lower prices for rate-sensitive growth stocks. And that’s exactly what happened to technology.

See below how the tech-heavy Nasdaq index started moving up and down from late November. The deflections in the circled area are about 6%.

Graph showing the Nasdaq sawtooth up and down 6% year-end

Source: StockCharts.com

Not too easy on the nerves.

*** But if similar sell-offs repeat themselves in the past, we may be nearing the bottom

from Bloomberg:

The interest rate-driven sell-off of hyper-expensive tech stocks has nearly run its course if past shocks are any indication …

This is how Morgan Stanley estimated, who compared the slaughter in technology that began in December to the five previous cases in which rising government bond yields triggered similar defeats.

In that, a basket of highly rated tech companies fell an average of 18% from high to low – that’s now 15% in the latest episode.

Morgan Stanley’s analysis came before today’s 2.5% sell-off on Nasdaq (as I write). So it is likely that we are very close to this mean “tumble” level from the analysis.

Even as we near the bottom of selling pressures, it’s important to make sure you are holding only the best technology today. This means that you are staying away from “profitable” technology. You want high quality, profitable, high cash flow companies.

Our hypergrowth expert Luke Lango had this point in his last week Early stage investor Daily Notes:

Put particular emphasis on profitable companies.

This is the show me the money year. With monetary conditions tightening, investors are unwilling to take huge leaps of faith in companies that promise to make money tomorrow.

Rather, they are only buying stocks in companies that are making profits today. We believe that profitable stocks will outperform unprofitable stocks in the next few months.

In the meantime, join the “Escape to Quality”.

The recent trades can be described as a flight into low-risk, high-quality assets. We suspect that this flight to quality will continue.

Focus on companies with strong balance sheets, great cash flows, and high gross profit margins.

*** To see why this focus on earnings and fundamental strength is important, take a look at what happened to speculative technology stocks

Below we take a look at a chart from Morgan Stanley and Bloomberg that started last summer.

What you see is the percentage change in: 1) “expensive software” stocks, 2) “profitless technology” stocks, 3) “crowded stocks of hedge funds”, and 4) the S&P 500.

While the S&P has risen to nearly 10% during this period, “profitless technology” has been knocked down with a loss of 30%.

Diagram showing that

Source: Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg

Back to Luke to learn how to manage the risk of further technical weaknesses when we enter an environment of rising interest rates:

Overall, we believe that protecting against short-term market volatility over the next few months requires an emphasis on high-margin, high-money, liquid technology companies with relatively low valuations.

*** Generally speaking, an “escape to quality” is a wise decision for all sectors, not just for technology

We all know that the broad market is trading at high valuations.

But I want to give you an additional, simplified perspective that could bring this home in a different way. Don’t be scared – it’s just a perspective on the market.

Below we look at the S&P 500 starting in 2009. This corresponds to the recovery from the global financial crisis.

I tried to fit a trend line on the chart. This trend line tries to track the median of all values ​​in the diagram in such a way that half of the measured values ​​are above the trend line and the other half are below.

I’ve circled what has happened since 2021. In short, market prices have climbed above the long-term trend line much higher than usual.

Chart showing S & P's long-term trend line.  We are way beyond that

Source: StockCharts.com

Well here’s the punch line …

If the S&P falls from its (as I write) level of 4,586 to its approximate trendline level of 3,800, that would be about a 17% loss.

And if you have a problem with where I drew the trend line I would suggest that engineering precision isn’t that important. As legendary investor Benjamin Graham once said, “You don’t have to know a man’s exact weight to know he’s fat.”

Whether we are talking about a 17%, 15% or 12% decrease, the point is the same …

The S&P is well above its long-term trend line than usual.

And remember, a mean reversion of 17% would only bring the value of the S&P back to its long-term trendline level.

Now look again at the table …

The last time we saw any significant spread between S&P price and its long-term trendline was 2013-2015. After this period of relative outperformance, the S&P returned to its trendline.

Over a period of roughly 7 months, beginning in the summer of 2015, the S&P lost nearly 15%.

Remember, this fall drove S&P down under its trend line. Our prospective 17% decline could happen if the S&P only finds support on its trendline – without falling below it, which would be perfectly reasonable.

The bottom line is that the S&P could fall 17% tomorrow and the multi-year history of growth in the market wouldn’t even take a bite … although many portfolios would.

*** Now, this doesn’t mean panicking and selling all of your stocks – starting with your technology stocks

The market can continue to rise. That is by no means unrealistic.

And if you’re selling now, how do you know when to get back in? There are tons of studies out there highlighting the almost impossible challenge of timing the market correctly.

And even if we are faced with a correction, it is important to see the big picture.

Back to high-quality technology companies as recommended by Luke, these companies are shaping the world of tomorrow. Yes, their stock prices could fall in the short term during troubled times, but this decade will see their dominance return.

These periods of weakness are normal and patience is essential.

Back to Luke:

You can hardly make a difference in America without coming into contact with Amazon, Apple or Microsoft. They are among the most successful companies in US history. Their rising market values ​​have made many people very rich.

However, these incredible companies didn’t hit the world in a day, week, or even a year. It took them years and years to go from small to dominant.

Only their patient shareholders made that big money.

Even the largest companies need time to “gain” and let the compound returns do their thing.

As investors, we should keep this in mind … be patient with great companies … think long term … have reasonable expectations of our holdings … and Snowball on our way to prosperity.

I add that every stock Luke just mentioned has seen sharp double-digit declines over the past several decades. That’s just the name of the game.

In the short term, your best protection against volatility is a portfolio that includes companies with strong profits and reliable, growing cash flows. And especially today, it is companies that can raise their prices to offset inflation while maintaining their margins and profits.

But the bigger recommendation is to remember for the long term. If you have a long investment schedule and are invested in high quality stocks like the ones Luke recommends, patience, not panic, is your recipe today.

Have a nice evening,

Jeff Remsburg

  • As we head into 2022, Wall Street firms agree that inflation will come back from its current levels.
  • Some say the higher inflation will persist and others say it will return to historical norms.
  • Insider has summarized the inflation projections for 2022 from strategists of the top Wall Street companies.

2021 was a record year for the global economy in many ways.

The stock market recovered continuously historical highs. An unprecedented one 2,388 companies Raised $ 453.3 billion in IPOs this year, up 64% and 67% year over year. according to Ernst & Young. And the total market value of cryptocurrencies rose from $ 800 billion at the beginning of the year to $ 2.3 trillion.

But perhaps the most intensely studied economic indicator this year has been inflation, which skyrocketed to its highest level in nearly 40 years. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the consumer price index (CPI) – a commonly used measure of US inflation – has risen 6.8% year on year in November, a number unknown since June 1982. The price index of personal consumption expenditure (PCE), often touted as a more accurate indicator than the CPI for measuring consumer behavior, peaked at 5.7% in November – also the highest year-on-year increase since 1982.

“In 2021, the rate of inflation has increased every month,” said Charlie Billello, CEO of Compound Capital Advisors, in his December 27th newsletter.

A trend that the average US household also shares increasing consumer demand forcing retailers to pass higher manufacturing costs on to customers through price increases. From Oreos to Sour Patch Kids to real estate, everything is getting more expensive these days.

It is therefore not surprising that inflation is at the fore for both private and institutional investors through 2022 31% of the respondents in a recent Bloomberg poll highlighting inflation as one of the biggest risks to markets over the next year.

Where is Wall Street?

“While the supply chain and associated inflation headwinds could last into the first half of 2022, we expect both to wear off after mid-year,” the Wells Fargo Investment Institute said in its 2022 Outlook report. “We expect inflation to weaken from current levels in 2022 but stay above recent historical norms.”

Other firms like Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley seem unanimously to share this view as they head into the new year. Most investment banks expect inflation to fall from its current staggering highs as supply chain bottlenecks ease, but they predict that it will still remain elevated compared to pre-pandemic levels.

However, banks disagree on the lingering impact of inflationary pressures in 2021 – while some believe higher inflation will persist in the years to come, others believe it will return to historical norms much more quickly.

Below is a round-up of inflation projections for 2022 from nine leading Wall Street companies, plus comments and investment recommendations for navigating the stock market from each bank.
