Identifying globally undervalued stocks



Everyone wants to invest in inexpensive but fast-growing companies with a big future – taking full advantage of what is ahead and profiting.

But there are two issues that quickly arise – how do you know which company is undervalued and how can you set yourself up to invest in it.

Global brokerage firm Interactive Brokers has taken care of both these with their innovative GlobalAnalyst tool, which lets investors compare the relative valuations and financial metrics of stocks globally. 

Investors can search for stocks by region, country, industry, market capitalisation and currency to identify undervalued stocks.

A table displays current market and various financial metrics, in an easy-to-use and sortable format, meaning more time can be spent in making more informed investment decisions.

One handy feature that GlobalAnalyst offers is the P/E/G Ratio (Price to Earnings divided by three-year compound earnings growth rate).

The PEG ratio, by definition, will be equal to 1 when the growth rate of earnings is equal to the PE ratio. As the growth rate of earnings increases above the PE ratio, the PEG ratio becomes smaller, and as growth goes lower, PEG becomes higher. Sell the stocks above a PEG of +1 and buy the ones below -1, could be a valid strategy. 

If the PE and the growth rate are maintained, the stock price will rise by the growth rate. If you start looking for companies to buy with low PEG ratios or to sell companies with high ones, always make sure to look into the company. Look at future earnings projections by analysts, look at regulatory filings, contact Investor relations to understand unusual data.

Look at the long term prospects of the industry; will it grow or shrink and how fast and how long? Look at the company’s competitive position within the industry. Adjust earnings growth estimates according to your data.

It is discipline and careful data gathering that sets apart the winners from the losers.

GlobalAnalyst also works smoothly with the IBKR GlobalTrader app, meaning you need only one app and one account for all your trading needs, quickly taking advantage of opportunities.

Workers rush back to their desks over job fears



Workers across Australia are rushing back to their desks, driving office utilisation rates to their highest levels since February 2020.

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays emerge as the busiest in-office days, contrasting with the continued reluctance to return on Fridays.

This insight, drawn from XY Sense data based on 18 enterprise customers in Australia employing approximately 68,000 individuals across 127 buildings, reflects a significant shift in workplace dynamics.

The surge in office attendance coincides with a resurgence in workplace attendance mandates and policies linking physical presence to bonuses and performance reviews.

However, co-founder of XY Sense, Alex Birch, suggests that rising job insecurity, rather than these policies, primarily drives this behavioral shift.

“The pendulum has moved towards the employer, and therefore people feel more obliged to go back into work,” commented Mr. Birch.

Job market

Danielle Wood, chairwoman of the Productivity Commission, anticipates this trend to persist as the job market softens.

She notes a disparity between employer and worker perceptions regarding the productivity benefits of hybrid work arrangements, hinting at potential shifts in the employment landscape.

Meanwhile, economists at the e61 Institute observe a partial reversal of the pandemic-induced “escape to the country” trend.

Rent differentials between regional and capital city dwellings, which narrowed during the pandemic, are now widening again.

This trend suggests a diminishing appeal of remote work options and a return to urban commuting.

Aaron Wong, senior research economist at e61, said the emergence of a “new normal,” characterised by a hybrid lifestyle that blends access to office spaces with proximity to lifestyle amenities such as natural landscapes.

While regional rents decline, rents for homes on the urban fringe surge, reflecting evolving preferences shaped by remote work opportunities.

Three reasons why you don’t need to panic about inflation



Inflation in the US has exceeded expectations for the third consecutive month, driven by increases in essential commodities such as oil, electricity, takeaway food, and medical costs.

  1. Despite a 3.8% year-on-year rise in CPI, it’s notable that this figure has decreased from its previous 9% high.
