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.

Amazon employees walk out to protest office policies



Staff at warehousing giant Amazon have walked off the job to protest the company’s return-to-office program

Over 1,900 Amazon employees pledged to protest globally over proposed changes to the company’s climate policy, layoffs and a return-to-office mandate.

The activist group behind the rally is known as Amazon Employees for Climate Justice (AECJ), who are seeking a greater voice for employees.

“Our goal is to change Amazon’s cost/benefit analysis on making harmful, unilateral decisions that are having an outsized impact on people of color, women, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and other vulnerable people,” organisers said.

Over 100 people gathered at the heart of Amazon’s Seattle headquarters on Wednesday. The company said it had not witnessed any other demonstrations.

AECJ said the walkout comes after Amazon made moves “in the wrong direction”.

The company recently has recently overturned a desire to make all Amazon shipments net zero for carbon emissions by 2030.

The company maintains a pledge on climate change.

Amazon spokesperson Brad Glasser told Reuters the company is pursuing a strategy to cut carbon emissions.

“For companies like ours who consume a lot of power, and have very substantial transportation, packaging, and physical building assets, it’ll take time to accomplish.”

AECJ protesters also sought support for the 27,000 staff, who had lost their jobs in recent months —around 9 per cent of Amazon’s global workforce.

The company has also mandated a return-to-office program.

The Great Resignation vs. The Great Burnout



As employees recover from the height of the pandemic, the Great Resignation has come to light

The pandemic saw the term ‘the great resignation’ coined as thousands of people resigned from their jobs across the U.S. in 2021 and 2022.

Karin Reed, the author of ‘Suddenly Hybrid said the great resignation was a period of employees taking control of their future.

“A lot of people realised in their current environment they were not happy with what they were doing with their job. They chose to vote with their feet and go elsewhere,

In other parts of the world, a spike in resignations was not reported.

However, a higher degree of workers began reporting post-Covid burnout, as they made a return to the office.

“There’s been a blurring of the lines. You have work that’s not confined by a physical space.

“Instead of closing the computer and walk away, our computer is in the next room.”
