How Is the First Quarter Looking for Investors?
"What else in. The first quarter just ended guests. We're already twenty five percent. Third twenty twenty one and i thought we take a look and see how this year is shaping up for investors and so far. It's a pretty good one well depending on what you're investing so the quarter ended on march thirty first as it always does for the first quarter so all the numbers. I'm going to provide our as of that date things along. Donald look a little different by the time he listen to this but i think the general themes will likely remain more of those teams. Is that all of the major indexes are near at all time highs just awfully nice but still some types of stocks are doing better than others so the s p five hundred is up six point five percent for the year and considering that it's historical average is about ten percent over the course of a whole year turning almost seven percent for the first three months is pretty darn good now. The nasdaq which has outperformed the s. and p. five hundred every calendar year since two thousand and sixteen is not doing quite as well in fact. The nasdaq was actually up. Just one point three percent for the year. As of march thirtieth but then surged on the last day of march one and a half percent bringing its first quarter performance to almost three percent or so As we know as very tech heavy and the technology sector was the second worst performing sector in the first quarter returning two point four percent edging out the one point eight percent from consumer staples the winners so far in twenty twenty one have been industrials. Half percent financials up sixty percent and the biggest energy up almost thirty one percent this year so many of these stocks in these sectors. That are doing well so far. In the year where beaten down in our rebounding which of course is classic value investing and indeed value stocks are up more than eleven percent so far this year but the biggest winners are the smallest stocks. The snp six hundred small cap index is up eighteen point. Four percent and the russell micro cap index is up twenty six percent so far this year international stocks have lagged the s&p five hundred so far in two thousand twenty one returning around four and a half percent but they closed out two thousand twenty pretty strong so when you look back at the last trailing twelve months or so. Us stocks and international stocks are about neck and neck which is looking better for international stocks. Because they've been lagging stocks for a long time. I'm kind of reluctant to mention this. But i i suppose i have to in that as bitcoin is up one hundred percent so far this year. I don't expect to give any updates on bitcoin too much in the future but who knows. I mean you can't really not bring it up if you're going to talk about twenty twenty one

"snp" Discussed on Coffee House Shots
"I'm katie bulls known joined by phrase and alison and james for saif nicholas. Tajuddin has survived of motion of no confidence in the scottish parliament. In fact it turned out out to be rather damp. Squib phrase it. Can you talk us through. What happened the squashes. Conservatives had said last week they were going to stages and there were points when it can be quite dramatic to be honest. I always thought it was other daft gesture by this conservatives shoes always going how reports has gone for her and even if she'd been found guilty by the hamilton inquiry guilty by the scottish parliament's investigation is always going to pass a confidence motion. Any opposition can at any point of press this button and think okay rogin ever confidence motion and it creates a little bit of drama while been the bill to the vote because unless the m. prime minister or first minister in this case is serious lost the majority then. There's absolutely no points. Usually it serves to shore up Whoever it is. That's the target of no confidence motion. Think a little bit excited when things are going so badly. Nicholas sturgeon after the alexander and testimony and this was one of few miscalculations. They've had also a miscalculation think to put so much store on the hamilton reports as they did with modern reported yesterday it cleared nicholas sturgeon of all four charges of breaking the ministerial code. So now this story is left to. I think then. Murder of razors demanding. A judge led enquiry now yet another one to keep it going which misses the point. And i think the point is this. What was scotland's has really seen is the mechanisms by which the uses to defend its power and its privilege i think that is damaging is not really about what nicholas sturgeon said to water whom she got her dates mixed up with. It was the twenty eighth of march second of april. What we've seen is the way. The crown office and other parts of the scottish establishments will ranks against critics of nicholas durden. And what we can expect if she wins majority which is still right now. The most likely outcome of the election me james. That's talked to inquiries as phrase touches on the hamilton inquiry was really good for next Klay terminal four cans and we've also had a second inquiry come which from the scottish parliament. That's one that leaks last week. So there was rain expectation it and say what did say which nicholas did mislead parliament. Can you just talk us through the main findings. On the main indications the jones johnson report is looking at whether she broke the ministerial code. Heat leads that she didn't eighty. I mean the report is as good nickless version as nicholas sturgeon could possibly have hoped she could have written it in my opinion in some ways to her and her own evidence to a committee because he accepts her explanation that she just forgot her meeting with jeff aberdeen where she all these various things which she herself acknowledged the committee that she understood why people found that difficult to believe james. Hamilton doesn't know the will go on this. Because this is the an independent lawyers assessment of the situation and in clearing her quite explicitly in a way that wasn't expected of all charges breaking the ministerial code. What the hollywood committee includes which it is worth remembering avert as snp majority does have a pro independence majority then that she misled the committee about what she had said to..
What's Behind the Rise of the Pandemic's Bull Market?
"Year ago today. Us stocks bottomed out but since that pandemic plunged something almost unimaginable happened. Wall street quickly shifted from bear to bull market setting new records along the way under center for serie. We wanted to take a look back to see how we got here and discuss where we might be headed next to do that. I'm joined by the wsj's caitlyn mccabe. She's on the market speed and is well equipped to explain all of this caitlyn. Good morning hi. Thank you so much for having me. So caitlin at the beginning of the pandemic we saw three major stock indexes plummet the s. and p. five hundred fell by thirty four percent in just twenty three trading days now fast forward all three have rebounded strongly. The dow is up around thirty three thousand mark so big picture. What played into this turnaround. Yeah so the. It was an exceptionally fast turnaround. We saw this incredibly steep and quick plunge and then it took just one hundred twenty six trading days to recover back to the february nineteenth closing level where we were before the sell off. That happened coinciding with the covid. Nineteen pandemic so. It was one of the fastest recoveries on record after such a steep plunge and i mean really the the climb back started with investors piling back into growth and tech stocks and that's carried so much of the market upward four the last year since you mentioned tech stocks. It's important to stress. These gains have not been seen across all sectors. Exactly so you know after. We reached this bottom on march. Twenty third twenty twenty. It became pretty clear pretty quickly. That investors were concentrating their money in growth stocks and big tech stocks. And so you saw big gains right off. The bat in what traders liked to call the fang stocks and so that stands for facebook apple amazon netflix in google's parent alphabet which spells out the acronym fang and these companies are so large and they comprise so much of the snp that was helping push the s. and p. five hundred up but you weren't just seeing growth and big tech. You're seeing of course you know Traders really interested in in companies like tesla. You're seeing zoom. You are seeing just all of these growth in tech companies Rising because i mean one simple explanation for it is that they were the companies that were standing to benefit the most from the pandemic shopping online. You had people using cloud computing and you know video messaging software and things like that and so that was really driving the market upward. You know of course. There is from time to time rotations into cyclical stocks and more of your industrials and energy and banks. But it really was for so much of twenty twenty just the growth in tech leading s ahead and then caitlyn more recently. We've seen a stall in us stocks. The nasdaq briefly went into correction territory earlier. This month last week. All three major indexes lost ground. What's going on here. So since the start of the year. We've seen this really steep and swift move up in bonney olds and that's had a ripple effect across the market so the short version is basically that the economy is recovering people are getting vaccinated and investors are really looking ahead to summer or fall where things might be returning back to normal and so of course there have been some concerns of inflation creeping into the market and so that's driven bond yields up which has an impact on assets across the market and so investors have been dumping shares of tech companies Basically because you know higher yields can mean higher borrowing costs for for businesses and higher yields also make investors reevaluate. How much they're willing to pay for. Future earnings and because significant earnings for tech stocks are expected to come in the future. It makes investors basically question how much they're willing to pay for those earnings. So you're seeing investors pullback from tech. You're seeing quite an uptick in energy and banks and and other cyclical stocks so. It's going to be really interesting to see how long lasting trend s and finally kaylin you talk to traders and analysts as a markets reporter. What's peaking your interest for the future. I think we're in this really interesting period in markets. Where right now so much of what's happening in the growth versus value trade is very fundamentals based and people are trying to evaluate the impact that yield will have on tech stocks like i mentioned in growth companies and what that will mean for banks and energy companies and everything that we've talked about so far but then you have this whole other segment of the market that is less connected to fundamentals right now. You know we saw the massive rise in the minimum stocks earlier. This year the game stops the amc's of the world you know we have this ongoing specs craze Cryptocurrency at that market is incredibly interesting. It's just gonna be really interesting because you have these two kind of branches of the markets that are going on right now. Where there's just this euphoria in some segments and then everyone is also trying to drill down this value versus tech trade. So i'm just going to be really interested to see what happens especially in these other segments of the market as we see more interest among retail traders as we see the spac craze probably only going to continue to grow and see what effect that has on the broader market
New Record Highs as Powell Reassures the Market
"Does the market finally. Believe jay powell. Now if you watch us yesterday we asked why no one seems to believe the fed chief when he says rate hikes aren't coming anytime soon but today he couldn't have been clearer powell saying the fed isn't even thinking about thinking about hiking rates until twenty twenty four at the earliest and when they do finally move the market will have ample warning his comments. Reigniting the record rally with the dow. Snp closing at all time high. So does this mean really say it all all right just to reiterate. This is obviously the deepfake. Does it meaning ring. True guy a love. The mimi's shifts are my favorite. And i i guess the answer going back to last night it depends on what market you're talking about. The stock market absolutely believes him. And you know i. I'm somewhat hesitant to say it. But that's something you know. Tim and karen and steven been saying for a long time. Don't fight these guys in the stock market continues on. Its merry way the flip side of that coin. Is you know. Ten year yields are an indication. The bond market doesn't believe him because here we are at north of one point six percent and the ten year so one market does. The other market doesn't right now the. Us equity market is winning and for the purposes of that. Show our show tonight. That's probably good enough at the same time when race. Get high enough tim. We've seen it in the past when they touch six six seven which they did this morning when they go towards one seven The markets have a little bit of a tantrum so even though the bond market may not believe jay powell eventually the stock market's take the lead to the bond market. So the two are back intertwined. So what what do you think the answer at this. Point is jay powell making abundantly clear and clear to the markets market participants. That there is no intention on raising rates until not even forecasted economic metrics come true but they actually have to see it in the present very backward looking very subjective. We've been. Rick rolled twice this week on fast money. So there's a lot going on. And i think you have a case here where also the concept of the the absolute level of of bond yields on the ten year. What point are are equities in trouble. And i think that's maybe a bigger debate on some level because we just don't know i think the conversation that The fed may have lost control of the long end of the curve. Is the right one to have I think from from fed funds obviously out to five or six years. It's pretty clear that Today's action tells you that the fed is able to job. Here's something else about today. People aren't really talking about. They're out there saying they're going to continue to buy at least eighty billion treasuries and forty billion mortgage backs. At least so again the size of the bond tapering Is something that's also really tough to understand especially when the fed really upgraded the economy Tells you that four and a half percent unemployment rate by the end of twenty twenty one From not terribly far off the record lows that we you know of all time that we went into the pandemic with his still not good.

I don't know if the data will force him to do something earlier he did. Say we're not gonna do it until the data makes us do it but if we start to see data change well then we'll have to think all right. He could be made to do it sooner. i don't really know i don't. It wasn't so shocking to me that the general rhetoric. I don't think it was so shocking to anyone but good for banks good for. I guess it was no giants surprise.

Etsy Crushes Estimates, Revenue More than Doubling
"Nc blowing past earnings expectations revenue more than doubling in the most recent quarter online retailer. One of the big pandemic winter shares up more than three hundred percent over the past year. And it's the biggest premarket gain earned the snp right now joining us to talk about the quarter and the outlook ahead job. Silverman ceo of esi. Josh it's great to see you this morning. You just had this blowout quarter. Let's talk about what you think. The future looks like and i ask in large part because i think we're all hoping that we're about to get into a post pandemic world that may bode well for some and may bode well for others. That's right well. Twenty twenty was a spectacular year for it was a time when circumstance met preparedness and millions and millions of people discovered for the first time or maybe rediscovered at sea At a time when they hadn't been in a long time and she's the kind of business that gets better as it gets bigger So more buyers means more sellers more sellers more buyers which makes the marketplace a whole lot better so to your point You know none of us really know what twenty twenty one brings. None of us have a crystal ball. But if i look at Twenty twenty ecommerce grew at an the crazy rate. Ecommerce grew it over forty percent year-on-year and yet oetzi grew two and a half times the rate of commerce. So i don't know what e commerce is going to do in twenty twenty one. But but i hope and believe that we'll be able to continue to outpace ecommerce overall in terms. Though of the way you think the shopping experience takes place you think by default the growth. You think i mean your how. What's the chance of the same kind of growth next year for example. Well i on the On the bull side of people we tend to forget. There's a lot of people even in twenty nine thousand nine who star shopped almost exclusively amal. Who never shopped online. So millions of people started shopping online and twenty twenty. Who hadn't before and they they loved it. It was convenient and interesting. And so we've brought a lot of people into e commerce warrant there before i'm the bear side during the pandemic can't spend on travel. They can't spend on dining so they're spending a disproportionate share of wallet retail and when they're spending on retail they go to the mall so they're spending a disproportionate amount on e commerce. So what. i don't know what. I don't know that any of us know is what's going to happen to consumer spending overall as you know as as restrictions ease what i do know though is if look over the long term if you're looking at twenty twenty two twenty twenty three and beyond ecommerce bigger and stronger and will be bigger and stronger. I believe as a result. Josh as you know. Musk tweeted on january twenty six. I hope you've saved the tweet. I kinda love at see. How much was that tweet worth. You think this quarter trades on the fundamentals and has always traded on the fundamental so at the time that he sent that tweet. Oetzi stock price went up. I forget the amount. But i think we gained a billion and a half two billion dollars market at four two hours and then the stock price settled right back down to where it started before the tweeting by the way. He's tweeting about the fact that he loves the marketplace tweeting about a product that he bought for his dog. Which which i love. But you know we trade on the fundamentals and i think it's so important that we keep talking about the fundamentals and i hope that's always traits on the fundamentals. Not on some story. That's that's other than that. You thinking at all about accepting bitcoin not right now i'm holder. I've held bitcoin for six or seven years. Now i think on the theory that i think it can be an interesting store of value. It could be an interesting tender. Some david need a whole lot more people to buy an own it before. I think it's really useful for people as as a and then. Finally i wanted to ask you about how you see the marketplace world versus the website or store world given the successive shoplifting. By how many of you are small. Businesses are both on on your service and also developing their own. And what does that mix look like for you know. Many of our sellers will also have their own shop. The challenges creating your own shop today is is is creating a lemonade. Stand in the desert right. It's harder and harder for an individual site to rise above the noise and become a brand that people can remember all the trends. I see is you know. We're consolidating fewer and fewer large e commerce platforms. And that's because the human brain can only remember somebody brands. We can only keep four five six eight brands in mind for everything else. We've got to go to google and we'd better go to facebook and if you're downstream google facebook then they're going to be the ones who get all of the economics so i don't think it's likely that there's going to be two billion thriving individual places to go buy things and years from now. I think there's going to be a handful. So the job of that seeing is to create a brand that stands for something that's meaningful and all of our sellers as a result

4 Stocks Ready to Ride the 2020 Infrastructure Boom
"As extreme cold grips. The south and texas tries to cope with massive power failures infrastructure plays or heating up. Checkout names like report. Macaroni neither rental soaring. Today has all this. Wild weather made that infrastructure investments story even more compelling karen wedges. What do you say well certainly sort of brings to light how we need. crept infrastructure upgrades. And then i think there's also some policy as we battle it out with china you know. How can we rely on this. Worldwide trade that the globalization. That's happened over the last ten or twenty years. We need to start bringing stuff. Poem that of course would be very inflationary if everybody needs to manufacture their own stuff but as it relates to infrastructure have been hoping for this for a long time position. Like united rental. This is just absolutely the holy grail for them to think about their business model. They have fixed costs very low variable costs so if you get utilization pricing way up. That's fantastic for them. All that having been said this is as expensive as as i've ever seen uri. So there is optimism already in there. We need an infrastructure bill trade down. But i think we've got one. It would continue to trade higher. Yeah nadine where the opportunities are you and karen hopped up on the midday call talking about infrastructure because if there was ever a time where we're the american Consumer the american voter out there was convinced that infrastructure needed attention needed investment. Now is the time in what is going on in texas melissa. I think you and karen are right. Here is what you have in texas as a supply shock. And you have the governor saying listen we need a winter is our state. Look at my own state. Will we need to protect against fire against floods and so that understand infrastructure is a really big deal so you see biden coming out saying we need a big plan today see the house transportation and infrastructure chair saying we need a one point five. Trillion dollar caught a spend and people are saying. That's not enough. So those two things along with what karen said. Which is china threatening to limit exports for precious metals and technology. All of those things very inflationary but it means that the probability of infrastructure spending just went up. yeah so where are the values jeff karen. How deluded to your uri. What she thinks is overvalued. There are a lot of stocks out there that may already be taking into consideration the possibility of an infrastructure bill we were valued if there is no infrastructure sorry overvalued if there is no infrastructure if there is infrastructure then it's a okay all right. Jeff what do you say. Yeah absolutely no. I agree with karen. And that's really exactly where i was going to go just to echo the sentiments of everyone else you know i think that there was this concern building that if we were to get a really big stimulus bill right. Now it'll be more difficult to pass infrastructure Climate spending things of that nature a little bit later in the year. I think that has changed now. Given what happened in texas. I think there's political capital to push some of that spending through but let's not forget. I mean there are fundamentals. That are supporting this story to. We got manufacturing today for the us for europe both very strong. So i think that's part of the story as well and i look at stocks like cat and volkan. These are names that i've been mentioning over the last couple of months. They're really nice. Steady uptrend just breaking out now to new highs over the last couple of months and i would say the same thing. Maybe for some of the rails. Npr norfolk southern. I think they end up participating in all of this The last thing i'll say is just relative. The small caps been such a big story. This year Definitely overbought. there's. There's no question about that. But i think the valuation gaffe still exists and when you look at the s. l. y. That's how we would prefer to play small caps almost twenty five percent and industrials and materials. So i think that also benefits from this trend. We're talking about see if this is also wrapped up in the in the rotation that you've been advocating which is away from the growth away from technology and into the cyclical plays on the bet that the economy will reopen is reopening soon. So if you look at the i. Wm so i'll pick up where we're jeff left off the wm's since november first. They're up forty seven percent against the snp. that's up twenty one percent outperformance. That's what you're looking for so where you started out saying that. This is about infrastructure shore. But i think it's only about twenty percent about infrastructure. I think the balance eighty percent is about rates. This is about the reflation trade. I know it's all sort of mixed up in the sausage making the ten year. Tenure went from fifty basis points to one point three three percent now. I know that it's a huge move. It's one hundred. Sixty three percent move based on a percentage of the percentage. That's what it's about. Think about this senate. The house are tied up with the covid relief. Reconciliation bill that's going to take us another couple of months. We're not getting infrastructure until june or july.

Scotland's leader vows to push for second independence vote
"Party has today set out how it plans to secure a new referendum on Scottish independence from the United Kingdom. The Scottish National Party, or SMP, says it will try to hold a referendum if it went the majority in this year's elections to the Scottish parliament. The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has made clear his opposition to another vote. The last referendum was in 2014 when 55% voted no to independence. Paul Hutchins, political editor of Scotland's Daily Record newspaper, will the SNP leader Nicholas Sturgeon be able to secure that second referendum. If you look at what they are plan ears, it is to get a joint agreement with the U. K government on a referendum on scorching depends, which is what happened back in 2000 and 14. But this time around Tory government in London has decided that it will not grant what's known as the section 30 order, which is effectively a joint agreement, so that's put the S and P in a difficult position, so they come up with a plan B, which is to organize their own referendum at the Scottish parliament. The big issue. There is whether or not that is legal. And while there's no doubt that they will probably go down that road is going to end up in the courts, so the question of whether there will be a referendum is probably will be decided by judges. Would unionist parties in Scotland go along with the referendum that hadn't been sanctioned by Westminster? Well, that is the key issue here. I think there's a big distinction to be drawn between whether Scotch Parliament can legally organize a referendum on the legitimacy of such a process. So even if the Scottish Parliament did push ahead with our and judges To say that it was legal. I think that be question Marks Reese because first is this court's conservatives who are pro union. They've already said they would boy court such a referendum on so you could be left for the situation where you have a referendum, but one side is just not taking part. And then you end up with the result could be C 18 90% fever of independence on internationally just looks quite amateurish. So I think that ultimately what you need is a process that is agreed by both sides on as we speak to snow and agreement on that looks quite far off. In the last independence referendum you mentioned there was a pretty large margin 10% in favor of Scott, the remaining part of the United Kingdom has that shifted dramatically in the last six years. There's no doubt that in the last couple of years their husband a shift in favor of independence. I think that around the last 20 opinion polls on independence surely lead for independence. So I said quite dramatic turnaround. From 2014, and I think there's a few reasons for that. One is Brexit as you well know, People school rejected Brexit when there was a referendum on that subject. There's also no doubt that the conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson, is hugely unpopular. In Scotland, and I think that is partly responsible for the shift in public opinion. There's also a perception that Nicolas Sturgeon has handled the pandemic better and Boris Johnson has. I think it's a combination of a wussy factors as resulted in the increase in independence with the last couple years. And yet, I suppose in the back of people's minds is is the worry that actually, if membership of the European Union was driving things, there's no guarantee is there a tool that Scotland could quickly rejoined the U. Well, Brexit is the degree imponderable off this to beat. On the one hand, there's no doubt that is driving increased support for independence, but it does re some issues for the pro independence state. After was a referendum there's MP would liken depends got to rejoin the U. So you have the issue of? Well, how long would that teak and then even if an independent school and did join the European Union? What would that mean for things like Borders on immigration and cite the United Kingdom of what would it mean in terms of trade between Scotland and the rest of the Yuki? So I think that you would see a very different referendum. If we lose to tea, please, with a different set of questions raised. That was poor Hussian of Scotland's Daily record newspaper.
"snp" Discussed on Coffee House Shots
"Yet I, think that it'll be interesting to see. Oversee does don trump full took that he's going to do TV conference from the White House to show that he is while but given the. Days left the presidential campaign. It froze everything up in the irony is questions about whether it's going to be another all older plan debates as two more I like to go ahead as planned if they don't. I think that seems to help Joe Biden because Donald Trump is behind I think normally the underdog is the one who wants to get that platform try and change things, and also it raises questions about Dome Trump's handling of coronavirus I think as a pit going from this week where he froze way mosque. Is Very hard to predict if if he comes unscathed in the some theories doing the ranch online that this could be a moment like Boris Johnson, mission strength things trump at that's there's been criticized quickly. I think it's hard to predict but on the surface, this looks bad for Donald Trump and his team. James Own last night spectator TV. Now's tend to plug things of map from the American conservative talked by his cover piece for the spectator this week about how contentious November elections going to be if neither side except the other one of other side has one how much more contentious is this has this latest news made the potential election result so we we know that for example, the Joe, Biden and his team are GonNa get Cova task because they always came into close contact with Donald Trump on Tuesday night the debate I, think the general consensus of medics he'd been commented on the seems to be that it would be unlikely but trump would have been. Infectious at that point but obviously, it is a reminder of how an election during a pandemic is different with this disease that I think one thing that I was very struck whitest into Matt. Purple. Last night it was sort of poll day seventy, four percent of people who strongly disapprove transforms the president intended by Mail on the issue is in the US they count the mail in ballots later and so does raise and May Jim remove prone to litigation in the like does raise the prospect that trump could be ahead on the night in person voting and he would but that's victory because that's proper votes in inverted commas and then over the next few days. Biden would take the lead in these various key swing states but trump. Always, postal ballots they're all fortunate and so you can just imagine are. Horrible messy situation with big disputes over who is the real president any one of the things I do think about this a lot which is in the US system the outgoing president is meant to sit there and integration and. As along with all other former presidents to new president, I find it very haunt imagining giving. Anyone ever described Donald. Trump is a good loser. Find it very hard to imagine trump's sitting there calmly as and having hisself image. Even if he lost, he would have to find some narrative history was robbed and I suspect for if he does lose this Kobe task the fact it took him off the campaign trail two weeks will become part about narrative and Katie today Tennessee confirmed that they were shown. So we'll be talking to US Love Lion Tomorrow afternoon to some of some of the brexit negotiations steepness the breakthrough moment. I mean it could be i. think there is a sense that fool the talks move along. You needed to have a moment where burst jumps in kid you have David Frost dealing with Shabani but you need to have a Boris Johnson not quite in the style of his walk live Radka the last time in the beach countryside..
"snp" Discussed on FT Politics
"Well. And that's what makes the Conservatives so nervous. This week has been a difficult one for the Scottish National National Party. In Scotland on the morning the party was about to produce. Its budget. The finance minister. MCI resigned over a revealing expose about hundreds of text messages. He sent to a sixteen year old. Boy It's coming pretty bad time for the party as they're about to enter the trial their former first minister Alex Alex Salmond on while there's been a massive surge in support for independence so music. Can you just give us the background. The story and the details of what happened yet. Well as you say the Sun and it's Thursday edition revealed that there is the economy secretary one of the most important people in the Scottish government and and favorite and back to succeed Nicholas Sturgeon. If and when she moves on our IOT has been sending social media messages fifteen year old boy there was no question he could survive it but for this to happen on the adds to the shock value and the kind of thing that says stuff of government. Nightmares are made of. So when I saw these meshes low hughes it Kinda me about some of the excellent reporting you've over the years about sexual harassment and Powell all plays in Westminster as well. It just remarkable that someone could be highly poof opposition. Light MR MCI send these messages and somehow thing that it may not come out and may a not we problematic in any way when these politicians come out and apologize. It always feels a bit instances to me because he was sending messages to a child at the beginning of this sweet. He apologize because he'd been cold. And that's what we've seen happen a number of times. It's not politicians willingly coming forward to apologize to their families in that party. It's when the media gets hold of the story and we've been talking about him as a young man but he really is a child. I've never come across a story actually on that level of severity verity. This is really really serious. And I think that the law states for him to we actually prosecuted in court for grooming. That would have to be evidence that he messaged this this young boy before he was sixteen. We don't know that but it's really one of the most disturbing stories. I think I've heard in an office proper. It's quite rare for story about what happens in MM frontline Scottish politics to break into the. UK's national consciousness which is sometimes often failing of the UK media to notice these things but it has come as one of a sense that things might not not going ideally to plan for the SNP. They've been in power for thirteen years now and of course these questions about their record on public services stock to be asked more more frequently and of course this is in the whole context of Brexit. which has happened last week and has changed the calculation of what the Party is going to do next in its push to you have Scotland breakaway from the UK? And I think what you have to remember is the has been in power a very long time in Scotland and a lot of people at the very top of the party of been there for a very long sometime Nicholas Sturgeon. John Sweeney. People like that and eat is running out of steam. You sense is falling into these kinds of scandals. long-running governments get into. It is facing some accountability over stewardship of Scotland. There were figures very recently showing very long waits at a thousand people waking up to twelve hours at an in education report at the very end of last year. That showed Scotland still in a pretty bad place on math and science way behind England people beginning to hold the SNP to account for this at the same time. Nine Nicholas John. Lewis have facing divisions on her strategy in terms of independence. She made quite a big speech at the end of last week telling people to be patient. We're not GONNA hold a wildcat cat referendum. There are people in her party. Who want to do so and so I think what you're seeing is not in the normal levels of trouble and the only support it has still is reverting back to the independence issue to keep its supporters focused on the big chunk? Trunk keep his party together. Samir how deep these questions about Nicholas Sturgeons leadership. Uh of the party because the handover from Alexander Hogue was fairly seamless and the party of C.. Did very well in the UK general election last year for back pay but but still pretty well in the Hollywood elections. Well all those questions sort of really problematic for how will they still quite surface level. I would see that at. The moment is still still very secure leader in terms of support from her members. What Robert says is absolutely right? There is growing discontent among the ranks about this strategy on independence and there is a real impatient witch. She can't ignore. There's also the coming child coming up which we can't really talk about in any detail because the legal proceeding but clearly it presents potential risks for the party but what's also important to see an install disclosed exist while as Robert says the. SNP is now finding increasingly. Difficult to shrug off its failings in government. It's facing an extremely weak opposition and its benefits from the ability to compare what's happening in Scotland off into what's happening in England and from its ability to believing failings on the UK government and on the brexit uncertainty and so Oh elliptically amazingly opinion polls recently have shown that after thirteen years in government the SNP has something like fifty percent of voters intending into back it in the constituency of the Scottish Parliament next year which is given how long it's been in power in these kind of troubles is remarkable. It will be very interesting of course if you whether they're mkhize disgrace an impact on what this is leadership issues well lower because the MCI has quit as Finance Minister in Scotland he's he's been suspended from the SNP potty but he still a member of the Scottish Parliament here and obviously his political career is in severe trouble at the moment. But it's embarrassing Sinclair station to have this happen for as mu was saying someone who is close to a likely successors you might have one of the very senior position. You've seen people like John. Swinney the deputy first minister come out saying no idea of this behavior which again raise the question of were they just totally blind to this or was it just one of those things that you get so so often in. Politics were often questions about people but people don't often say the move as when public out of fear of what consequences it may bring. Yeah I mean he's actually extraordinaire extraordinaire to think he's still allowed to walk around Scottish Parliament. If this was a normal company or industry think that if you will call you have been found to have message inappropriately to Ed child that they wouldn't be allowed back into work the next day. That's the most striking thing hip politics just a function on a normal hr level to other companies. And and you're right. I mean the reason these stories. Don't come out in. The only reason they have to do is because often the media gets hold of them is that they're all places that supposedly now complainants can go to complain about politicians but because of the power imbalance hip his if the public nature of these positions roles it's terrifying for lots of the people to come forward and this boy was sixteen presumably. It was his family that contact the journalists probably out of desperation because they didn't know where to go and we know anecdotally. That party whips leaders of political parties. Everyone that serves in them. They know who the Romans they know who has acted inappropriately but often nothing thing happens. It is only when it goes to the media that people suddenly take action and it's really shocking that it has to be that way. Dean is very much the same in Westminster as well. And we've seen that over many many times that when MP's who have acted inappropriately Ovo can the Lord often comes out through the media because the whip system of you want to protect. The party's integrity. I should say the. SMP leadership is absolutely insistent. They had no idea about this kind of behavior and I think if there is evidence that they did then and they would be in extreme trouble absolutely and finally vote mused about this question about the lack of opposition Scotland here because as we said we talk about these travails for the SNP in its challenges of indepence leadership. But it's still so far ahead is still but the dominating force in Scotland Oakland Tier. And we've got the Hollywood elections coming up in twenty twenty one. The scores stories going through this leadership election squash labor. Absolutely nowhere so it would have to be something pretty the big. It's GonNa Knock the Party of its perch because it is just so far ahead. Well I think you're right. I mean I think there's a quick crossover to Brexit in Britain which you have one important potty taking the case for independence and all the others making the case fiends mops up the nationalist vote as we've seen opinion polls recently that could be as is fifty one fifty two supercenters certainly at the very least in the mid forties. So they've got a lock on all of that vote and that's quite hard to shift. The Labor Party's you say has completely collapsed. In Scotland Gotland. The tourists are okay. But I think the key to me it seems is late. Potash has got to find a way to revive in Scotland so that when the independence battle comes it's it's not just Scotland versus the tours.

Final thoughts obsolete Conservative Party is in better shape but it has no sign of being able to to break out to the kind of level of support that would make it an alternative government to the. SNP there is a real weakness in the Pool Union political medical forces at the moment and with the kind of UK politics. We might be expecting under Boris Johnson.

"Alex massie he joins us down the line from Scotland where it's budget day in the Scottish Parliament about the Scottish Finance Secretary has resigned. Derek MCI has quit his role I was before he was due to deliver his his. Party's budget following a story. Published in Scottish son. Alleging he said inappropriate messages to a sixteen year. Old Boy on Social Media Nicholas Stage in the fast as minister has since given the statement his what she had to say. It didn't Mckay has apologized unreservedly for his conduct and recognized as I do that. It was unacceptable acceptable and falls seriously scandal required for a minister. I can also advised that he has been suspended from both the SNP and parliamentary elementary group pending further investigation. However I also wanted to formally confirm to parliament that the government will proceed as planned with the Scottish budget? This afternoon it will be delivered by the minister. Public Finance Keat Forbes set out our plans sustainably grew out economy support public services and step up action to tackle the the climate emergency sedarat. KYW is out of his role he's been suspended buys party and when it comes to small issue of the budget will be Kate Forbes. His twenty ninety nine year old deputy having presented with just a few hours notice addicts. This is a disaster. SMP isn't it. It's not exactly the timing that you would want and of course the substance of the story is not exactly what Nicholas Sturgeon would want and you know I mean there are political stories and scandals and so zone that cut through and then there are those that don't i. I suspect this is one that that probably will cut through in Scotland. You have the manhood till this morning was the finance secretary as you say was going to deliver the budget for the Scottish Parliament Day and revealed to have sent. I think it is two hundred seventy different messages on facebook and instagram and other social media platforms to a sixteen year old boy. Derek McCulloch is forty two. This is the sort of thing that that makes impression on people and while it is perhaps just a personal story in one sense and as much as it doesn't have anything to do with party policy or grand politics in that sense. It's still the sort of thing that is deeply embarrassing for the Scottish government and something that that does it has to weaken them Inasmuch as MCI was until very recently until yesterday in fact often spoken of as a potential successor to Nicholas Sturgeon. As isn't when she steps dying whenever that may be James this is Ken tear Chancellor Fazli resigning on budget. Isn't it yes. I think sometimes the London media downplays stories in in Devos Scotland's it doesn't quite understand the politics of it but this is an absolutely massive moment. The the finance ministers to resign on the day he was meant to deliver the budget. As Alex was saying and he wasn't just the planet's minister he was regarded as one of Nicholas surgeons most likely successors successes. And the story. Here I when you read the story McLean had never met the sixteen year old. Boy this is. This is a series of messages sent. How's The blue to somebody? There are invitations to events are Holly Rood is clearly an abuse of power. How he is behaving I I? I don't think this is the scandal that people will notice. I mean there's also no question here which is yeah. Budget today was meant to be part of his whole pattern of Nicholas origin and the SNP trying to set out their case for independence. How they would do things differently? I think it is fair to save known as into much. Notice the measures in this budget unmet addicts have pressure. You think there is own Nicholas Sturgeons own position not relating to this incident. I mean more generally because you'll often hear various. SMU politicians not on the record but suggesting that Nicklaus staten perhaps won't be here for the behavior the foreseeable and you touch them when you talking about the fact act this disposition was seen as a potential successor. Yeah I mean It's one of these things where you get a sufficient number of bad news stories. The reasons on then individually. They're all you know perfectly survival. You can shrug them off. And on cumulatively they begin to have an impact so for instance you have the fact that the a Scottish government has been forced into launching a wholesale review of Scottish education. which will be conducted by the OECD? I mean that in many ways is a fairly humiliating something to be forced into doing you have the hospital waiting times being missed again and again and again and other targets in the health services well and the MP's he's line is well. Things are worse in England. Well maybe they are but that doesn't actually butter any pass. Nips in Paisley you have a scandal over New Ferries Caledonian macbrayne. That are years over over past their their their delivery date and gonNA cost twice as much as was initially initially estimated and there are still no signs of these various. You have a number of different things that coalesced together and give the impression awe of an administration. The the is struggling at the moment in terms of its day to day responsibilities and and once you know government's approval ratings in terms of its handling of health education transport and other matters once those ratings slip into negative territory as they have for the SNP. It is very very difficult to turn that around and very difficult. I think when you've been in power for twelve thirteen years is the SMP have been now to refresh and revitalize your government remember Nicholas Doj and has been minister for for five for more than five years nine. And you get to a stage where you know. You don't get any credit for fixing things things you know because the public view you shouldn't you should fix them years ago. These are problems that have developed on your watch and you should not the only early politicians to suffer from this sort of thing. Obviously I think actually Boris Johnson is going to discover this as well that for that he leads a new government. It remains the the case that the Conservatives beat impove for a decade and so you know you'll fixing things the are as far as the public is concerned your responsibility in the the first place. So you don't get any credit for it and and Nicholas Sturgeon. I think is discovering that now as well in terms of as I say the big ticket items of the tar her Goltz responsibility health education in particular but I think the success of the SNP is by repeatedly making Scottish politics about the constitutional question there. They all managing gene to evade the public voting on their domestic record. You know they are going to turn the 2021 Hollywood election in into a question of whether you want another independence referendum or not not whether you think government has done a good job with devolved powers that are has. I think that is one of the challenge of the unions. Parties in Scotland is to avoid every election in Scotland becoming election the constitution while the SMP managed to run away from their own actual record in government. That's absolutely true. Undoubtedly hitherto suited the Scottish conservatives in particular to you know if you like to have a sort of tacit agreement with the SMP that yeah. Let's make it all about the national question because that way we can both squeeze the Labor Party picked the flesh from its bones. But that won't work for for unionism forever And I think you're right James. The the the other parties have to focus on other matters on health education transport justice and so on On indeed on the economy as well which is not doing particularly well at present and persuading people that that's what the next election should be about will not be easy actually because in the end the SNP's trump card is that they can say well. We are Scotland's party. We stand up the Scotland for the national interest. And we are fundamentally although we're social-democratic left of Center Party fundamentally our politics is based tonight entity and if you're Scottish I and if you're Scottish not British toll is You know in terms of how you see yourself. Then you know they they invite you to put aside whatever concerns you might have by aspects of that record. Oh the worldview and concentrate on that bigger picture which is identity entity and that is a a tremendously powerful force as we've seen in previous elections and on May yet again next year James. You mentioned that today's Today's budget was supposed to be part of the SM he's efforts to build up momentum towards independence that have been free polls and successions suggesting support for independence is rising in Scotland. And is this going to stop them in their tracks. No Oh is it not actually so significant when it comes today she I in Connell help them. I on the course I think there is. There is something readings or very something very sleazy about this. On recent British political history suggests that that kind of sleazy put upon disappointed. The begin to look sleazy run into trouble at the ballot box fairly soon. Also I think at the moment that this is the most difficult bitter the brexit process for for union because Brexit has happened which I as you pointed out in spokane has sourcing facts in Scottish politics where people voted it remained in that referendum in in two thousand sixteen but had voted no in twenty fourteen. A large chunk of those have moved to. Yes I personally. Anything the as the realities of brexit become clear I mean the case for independence becomes much more complicated. There's a reason why the. SMP always advocated twenty-five years advocate independence in Europe because that solve the problem if there is going to be friction in the trading relationship between the EU you in the UK that means that an independent Scotland in the EU with a UK out the rest of the UK all UK outside of Customs Union Single Market. And that would be a goods. What's border at Gretna? I and that is a big question whether Scotland wish the SMP Commission endless reports about number of jobs that would be lost in Scotland if there was any friction in Scotland economic relations with the EU. But that would be all not by the same multi level. Should he be even more jobs than even more growth lost if there was friction. Richard and Scotland's most importantly go with relations with the rest of the UK and finally addicts just to end this book us. Derek MCI as we discussed has been talked up as a potential successor. Asa eventually to Nicholas Sturgeon. Who are the main candidates to potentially succeed in the future? Well it obviously it depends as when there may be a vacancy you can see. There isn't present. I think it's also fair to say however that their own any immediately compelling plausible candidates. I mean you could have somebody like John Swinney her deputy who previously led the Party of course but he could act as a caretaker. Perhaps I think you have a number of other ministers who who would fancy their chances. Mike Russell hums a use of a number of others as well but none of them have the sort of health left The Nicholas Sturgeon. Has she would be very difficult to replace. I think and if I could just say in relation to James Point he's upset of course that brexit. It does complicate many of the practical technical aspects of the independence case but it also clarifies aspects of the independence cases. Well in as much as the argument the Scotland would be able to make its own choices becomes evermore pertinent. I think in the in the BREXIT era and indeed if it weren't for Brexit it. We wouldn't be having this conversation. The future of the Union would not be on the table at the moment. This is something that has been put on the table by the Brexit vote. And so in that sense. It's something that's has been put on the on the table by voters in England and Wales rather more than by voters in Scotland. And the idea that you know that everything is is sort of economic economic cost benefit analysis as well. Yes James is absolutely right. Both all of that and how independence would be a difficult. Perhaps impoverishing thing for Scotland but the Brexit Vote Vote Self I think also demonstrates not everything is about economics and the idea that people in Scotland won't vote against their economic self interest. Kristen argue that people in Scotland Dont a more intelligent than people in England. Not Sure I would take that bet. I'm not sure I would say that with any great confidence myself.

And what made you decide to research it? Sure. So it's an index arbitrage type of strategy, and it's pretty neat in that. It's basically. Unknown to all amateur investors. And even the large majority of financial professionals to there are some hedge funds and trading that do use this approach. But what I've done is over the years, I've meticulously tracked all the additions deletions that occur in a specific smallcap index. So when new ad get announced the ideas index funds are forced to add these stocks because they can't afford to risk any tracking error right with the index. And you know, what I'm sure your listeners, though, there's been a huge shift from active to passive with the last several years, and that means that huge sums of money must buy these names. The index. Mutt? By the index additions this specific stocks that are being added to this index. Okay. Back to the reason that they can't afford the tracking or so they're forced to by these names. So every ETF the covers at index has the by all editions if they want to track it correctly, correct? Yep. And they're not tracking correctly. Then they're not they're not doing what they're supposed to be doing. So the essentially every time a stock. It's included in the index. There's enormous buying pressure. Because so many indexes have to buy it. And most investors are now leaning towards using passive index is versus actively managed mutual funds. Absolutely. The strategy you discuss with us was actually with the SNP six hundred. So what are those stocks? Those are the smallest six hundred stocks that are going to get too technical. But there's an SNP fifteen hundred completion index which encompasses the S and P five hundred the SNP four hundred which is made caps and then SNP six hundred which is the small caps. So a stock that starts out in the six hundred and gets bigger. It will no longer be in that index. Correct. It'll have to go to another index. And now there'll be an opening and the and the index will have to bring in a new stock. Right exactly or stock is taking over and they need to fill place with with a new edition is the strategy.
