    The ER Approach to Critical Stock Recovery

    Stock investment can be like medicine, because emergencies bring out the best in people. A crisis can quickly turn in to an opportunity for new and stable growth, whereas exuberant celebrations of transient success may hide precipitous falls! Skilled and experienced ER teams deal with frightening casualties, displaying professional calm, and can bring people back from the brink of death in minutes. A typical stock market is no stranger to frenzy, but the really important corrective, preventive, and contingent actions take place in management meeting rooms, well-hidden from amateur views.

  • Strategic Sourcing Lessons from the Chicago Stock Exchange (Part 1) - 29 January 2008
  • Western economies have transited from agricultural domination to industries and services, so stock investors unfamiliar with the Mid-West of the United States, and basically urban in upbringing, treat pork belly futures with misplaced mirth. Though inclement weather and sudden pest and disease outbreaks can play havoc with production levels, farms are ideally suited for forecasting based on models. We can use hard information on area planted and numbers of animals to foretell how much of agricultural commodities will be available during coming months. The entire stock trading world owes the Chicago stock exchange for making a science of predicting farm output.

    A disaster of any kind is not an event from which anyone should draw advantages, but the fact remains that acutely adverse incidents expose vital inventory linkages. Stock investors can observe how badly individual companies are affected, and also how quickly they resume normal operations. Another set of signs relate to terms of trade: items that companies pay for in cash or even in advance must be scarce.

  • Mind Games with Your Stocks (Part 1) - 28 January 2008
  • It is widely known that psychology plays pivotal roles in most stock market transactions. Some of the most successful stock brokers capitalize on the illogical fancies of investors, and may even be party to spreading bits of information that lack substantial bases. What about powerful executives, and hands-on owners who have inherited controlling stocks? Can they become victims of delusions when hostile moves take place in a stock exchange? Is arrogance a danger as ideas that seem profitable at first, turn sour later? This should not concern us if someone else’s private equity is at stake, but are you willing to stake your capital to serve someone else’s false pride?

    Nationalism and Stock Investment

    Nationalism is a special form of stock market behavior that transgresses business management principles. India has a particularly destructive stock market culture, where tons of value may be lost for no good business reason. The media, public, and government, all support stock market moves on grounds of social relevance without any regard to economics and profitability. The country’s colonial past results in fundamental opposition to some Anglo-Saxon countries, and acquisitions of European companies are especially celebrated, whether they are judicious in business terms or not. The United States enjoys a special relationship with the Indian stock investment community, since Washington supports outsourcing in the face of mounting unemployment in its own country.

  • Lessons from Bureaucrats in Collaborative Stock Value (Part 1) - 27 January 2008
  • The business management concept of encouraging competition to foster better consumer choices and service levels, has outlived its utility and relevance. Since resources are inevitably limited, a helicopter view of productivity will show that organizations may combat each other without any customer benefits in sight. The dangers of monopoly abuse can be contained through processes and creative controls. Much of branding is psychological in any case. The perspectives of stock investors with respect to illogical competition are different in any case from those of biased executives protecting their patches of turf, because the stock market is the ultimate purveyor of holistic value creation.

    Unearthing New Stock Value through a Merger

    The Swiss may have very conservative, courteous, and considerate manners, but can be fierce and unrelenting adversaries at the same time. Stock investors who play tennis will think of Roger Federer! This is why outsiders may not be aware of the uncompromising rivalry between Sandoz and Ciba, before the birth of Novartis in 1996. More than a decade has passed since this path-breaking merger, and it has become an object lesson in how collaboration rather than competition can enhance stock value. Research and all management services benefit most when mergers occur, and naturally stock holders share the spoils!
