As We Know By Now There Is Such A Phenomena Called Tsunami. 230,000 people died in the 2004 Sumatran Tsunami & Year 2011 another 20,000 got killed by the Japanese Tsunami.
A Financial Meltdown is likened to A Tsunami in its Similarities – Swift, Sweeping & Destructive With Little Time For Escape.
So We Need To Prepare Well A Head of Time.
There Are 7 Ways To Prepare For A Financial Crisis Just Like 7 Ways Of Protection Against A Future Tsunami
1) BUILD HIGH SEA WALL ALONG THE COAST
In certain part of Japan Huge Walls Are Built To Prevent The Next Tsunami from crashing in. So we must build up Walls against the onslaught against another Financial Crisis. Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia Have Built Up A Huge Wall of Foreign Currency RESERVES Against any future onslaught by Currency Speculators
2) RUN TO HIGHER GROUND
At the sound of siren – leave everything and Run To Hill or Higher Ground.
Park Money where there is higher level of safety. Put money in safest instrument like bonds, Safe & Sound Banks Like Public Bank in Malaysia. Also park money in safe countries like Switzerland and Singapore.
3) Stay Inland or Live As Far Away From The Sea As Possible
Stay away from all kinds of investments with exposure to danger if you can. Just hold on to the safety of diversified Cash in Different Currencies. Return OF capital is now far more important than return ON capital.
So stay safe.
4) BUILD SOLID BUILDINGS WITH STRONG FOUNDATIONS.
If you really need to live and work by the shores as a calling like Fishermen, Sea Food Manufacturing or all things related to the Sea then Invest More On A Stronger Building. When Tsunami hits Your Building Will Stand Tall & Be A Place of Refuge While All Other Rickety Buildings Are Swept Clean Away Into The Sea.
In Investments seek out Rock Solid Companies with High NTA (Net Tangible Assets). These Rock Solid Stocks or Businesses With High CASH RESERVES Will Withstand any Financial Crisis.
5) GO ABROAD TO SAFER COUNTRIES
This is What Some Japanese Are Doing. They Have Moved To Taman Molek, bought up entire block of Condo & called it
“LITTLE JAPAN” Here in Iskandar – Free From Earthquake, Typhoon or Tsunami The Happy People Will Never Again See Anymore Tsunami.
So in Times of The Greatest Danger or Crisis– Human & Capital Flight Is Really The Last Resort. That’s how Millions of Chinese left for Foreign Shores Due To The Great Famine in China. CASH Flee Corrupt Nations With Crashing Econominies.
6) STAY AT SEA FOR SAFETY – HEDGE FUND IS THE EQUIVALENT.
Tsunami means “Harbour Waves”. The Waves Are Generated By Earthquakes in Deep Sea. These Waves gather momentum as its speed towards the shorelines. So Ships Out in Open Seas away from the shores are generally safe.
Hedge funds have the ability to buy or short sell shares or anything. One example: During the Asian Financial Crisis Car Sales Vaporized in Malaysia. And Car Prices Collapsed. One Importer has a consignment of New German cars in a bonded Ware House. (A bonded warehouse is a place to keep imported cars where Duty Has Not Been Paid & The Car is not yet officially registered.)
Seeing there is no demand for his New German Cars he decided to sell them to another country not in crisis. To his glad surprise when he bought those German cars the Ringgit was still strong & when he sold the Ringgit has collapsed against the German Deutsche Mark. So he made a surprise windfall from currency difference.
Hedge Funds Have This Ability To Make Money in all markets.
George Soros Quantum Fund Motto
——-“STAYING AHEAD OF THE CURVE”——- Is An Appropriate Idiom.
7) GO AIRBORNE
Those on planes, in hot air balloons or up in helicopters
These not only escape the Tsunami but is able to see and take photos/videos of the ongoing Tsunami. Some even provide vital warnings & rescue works.
These Are Successful Investors Who Are Already Well Prepared Ahead of Time. During The Great Depression of 1929 – 1939, outstanding Tycoons, Churches & Philanthropist gave out free food & soup to the masses.
Wise Investors & Wise Governments Will Be A Help Some Day To Future Ignoramus Who Live In Danger of Another Real or Financial Tsunami.
But why look for hand outs? Be Wise & Prepare Yourselves Now.
A NEW FINANCIAL TSUNAMI IS COMING. IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME
SO BE PREPARED!
In year 2007/8 just before the Lehman Brothers’ Crisis I sold off all 130 counters except one.
OPCOM. Opcom was insulated from the Financial Storm due to its moat. It has a monpoly on the fiber optics in Malaysia. And TM is in a sense recession proof – being a utility. During the Great Depression of 1930s John Maynard Keynes’ 2 funds did well because he bought into defensive utilities which provide decent dividends.
At 30 cents OPCOM was a great buy. Opcom later gave 22.5 cts Cash Payout.
Now OPCOM has already secured a Rm200 millions new job from TM. So OPCOM will be able to pay another 20 cents dividend. Calvin advocates collecting Opcom below 65 cents as a form of capital protection.
Another counter is MULTICO. Why Multico?
Multico at 83 cents is selling at over 60% discount to NTA over Rm2.00.
Govt has already granted Rm1.5 billions for Proton to pay vendors. So MULTICO is safe. Expect Multico to pay good dividends. Multico is also supported by these 3 things
1) INSIDERS BUYING MULTICO AT 85 CENTS
2) JAPAN 2 EARTHQUAKES WILL CAUSE THEM TO TURN TO MULTICO FOR PARTS
3) TPP WILL GREATLY BENEFIT MULTICO
MULTICO IS A TSUNAMI SHETHERED SHARE!
Others are KWANTAS, MHC Plant, TH PLANT, B PLANT, INSAS, PINEPAC, MP CORP (MP CORP NOW VERY CHEAP – SO IT’S QUITE SAFE), RSAWIT, CEPAT WASASAN
