With the current market situation and scenario, it is almost as if any and every option is a good option to invest or hold. However, I am very keen on Ripple and EOS, which are pretty low price options, but have very high potential.

If you check EOS price prediction, it shows that the possibility of the upcoming time. So, to me EOS comes first followed closely by Ripple and then Ethereum or Litecoin!

Hi, I have just gone through your website and I understand that your team is doing everything possible to scale the issue of security on the Zircash platform. Now, where I need clarification is how you intend protecting your network against network takeovers. I would appreciate if my concern is given an urgent attention.
5  Economy / Economics / AA UNION CAPITAL Weekly focus on: October 12, 2018, 04:58:51 AM
The outperformance of family businesses

■   Years of analysis by the AA Union Capital (AAUC) Research Institute (AAUCRI) have shown that family businesses tend to outperform the wider market.
■   This outperformance can not only be attributed to superior financial performance, but also to factors such as a more conservative long-term business focus and a greater emphasis on innovation.

Special topic

SNB now expected to raise rates in Q3 2019


■   Higher risk perception and stronger-than-expected Swiss economic growth have lifted the CHF recently. We keep a neutral view on EUR/CHF and USD/CHF.
■   Even though the Swiss economy is growing dynamically, we push our forecast for the first interest rate increase by the Swiss National Bank (SNB) from March 2019 to September 2019.


 
Views and forecasts

Appendix – AAUC Research Recommendations
Four of our favored family-owned businesses


Family businesses tend to outperform the broader market. Below we highlight four attractive family-owned businesses.

As a conglomerate Bouygues’ (BUY) main share price drivers are the construction (No. 1 constructor in the world) and the telecom businesses in France. Its construction business should gradually improve as the company is benefiting from big North American infrastructure plans and from high quality “smart city” contracts such as “Grand Paris.” Profitability in telecoms should improve on the back of strong momentum in the mobile business where Bouygues has moved to the No. 2 position thanks to its service quality, having historically had the lowest network quality. We also see some potential upside if telecom consolidation returns to France.

EasyJet (BUY), still dominated by its founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, is a structural winner in the European short-haul market and benefits from Air Berlin’s and Monarch’s exit. The company has a disciplined focus on driving returns from a high-quality network of largely primary airports and is focused on sustaining its No. 1 or No. 2 position at its key bases, with a proven track record of optimizing returns. In our view, it should continue to gain attractive market share by growing capacity at mid-high single-digit rates.

Pernod-Ricard (BUY) is a family-owned business that has already gone through several generations and is still managed by the family. The business has been built through the acquisitions of spirits assets that have high barriers to entry such as the capital required to allow for the aging of stock. The company is managed conservatively and delivers strong organic growth and superior returns. Pernod-Ricard is well exposed to premiumization trends in the beverage space, notably in emerging markets.

Straumann (HOLD) continues to execute on its strategy of entering into so-far untapped markets (aligners, biomaterials, ceramic implants), leading to solid organic growth. Given the high operational leverage innate to the business, the current economic conditions are favorable for Straumann. We retain our positive stance after the recent (albeit minor) correction in valuation, as we believe that likelihood of Straumann continuing to deliver on its strategy is high. Meanwhile, we are watching closely as competitors come back to their feet (notably Nobel Biocare, but also others), which could create some medium-term risks.
6  Economy / Economics / Family businesses are key for a nation’s economy on: October 09, 2018, 09:03:58 PM
AA Union Capital (AAUC) Research Institute has conducted research on family businesses globally. One of the findings of the latest AAUC Family 1000 report is that family-owned businesses outperform the wider market not only because of their superior financial performance but also due to factors such as a more conservative long-term business focus and greater emphasis on innovation. Hence, they are among the most important building blocks of a nation’s economy.

With regard to the Swiss economy, stronger-than-expected growth along with greater risk aversion has strengthened the CHF recently. Given the risk of appreciation, the Swiss National Bank will likely maintain a cautious stance at its upcoming monetary policy assessment on 20 September.



CIO view
Blinkmanship


■   As the brinkmanship continues to intensify in the US-China trade dispute, so too does the obfuscation and misdirection. Until this fog of war dissipates, it is perhaps more useful to consider the range of possible outcomes and their divergent implications, which we have delineated in this piece.
■   Our base case is for a 10% tariff on USD 200 bn of Chinese imports to be met with some retaliation. Equities could rally 15% over six months and the USD/CNY should be capped at 7.0.

Will it be China or the USA? Which side will blink first in the increasingly complex trade dispute between the two countries? Which side will decide first that the domestic cost of the dispute outweighs its perceived economic value and subsequently seek to close out the issue, albeit in the guise of a political victory?

Apparently it isn’t the USA. On Thursday, US President Donald Trump stated that he felt “no pressure” to reach a trade agreement with China despite news the previous day that his administration had extended an invitation to Beijing to hold ministerial-level talks.

It is well within the bounds of possibility to think that pressure is building from US businesses to stop the trade dispute from escalating. Ahead of the mid-term elections, President Trump is probably looking to engineer some positive Mexico-style newsflow. Possibly, he is seeking to distract media attention away from the daily drama that seems to characterize his administration.

We just don’t know at this juncture. And until we are able to derive a sense of clarity on an ultimate end game, uncertainty, opacity and concern will likely frame investor sentiment. As such, we present – and discuss – three possible scenarios, which we hope will assist clients in shaping their thoughts on the dispute.

Base case (50% probability): The USA imposes 10% tariff on USD 200 bn of Chinese imports; China retaliates somewhat, but both parties eventually reach a negotiated settled over the following 6–9 months.

■   Macro: 2019 China GDP growth reduces by 0.6%, half of which will be likely offset by domestic stimulus – e.g., accelerated infrastructure investment. Thus, we expect China growth to slow to 6.2% next year from 6.5% in 2018.
■   Currency: USD/CNY to be range bound at 6.8–7.0. The recent depreciation largely reflects this baseline scenario and models indicate a fair value of around 6.9.
■   Equities: Expect a 15% rally over the subsequent six months but sideways action in the near term. Earnings are still strong and negative news is in the price after the recent de-rating. The P/E ratio for China A-shares is now below the 2015 sell-off levels. However, a lack of positive newsflow could keep buyers on the sidelines in the near term.
■   Credit: Expect China investment grade (IG) to deliver 4% and China USD high yield (HY) to deliver 7%–8% over the next 12 months. For IG, credit fundamentals would remain intact and the gradual rise in US Treasury yields would be offset by spread compression. For HY, sentiment and valuations have improved as the People’s Bank of China fine-tunes policy on credit and currency; but refinancing issues and trade impact would weigh.

Bear case (30% probability): The USA imposes a 25% tariff on USD 200 bn of Chinese imports and threatens to proceed with another USD 267 bn. China retaliates strongly and both sides fail to reach a deal in the next 12 months.

■   Macro: 2019 China GDP growth is reduced by 1.1% reflecting the difficulties of distributing 25% of tariffs across the supply chain. Chinese authorities could respond with further domestic stimulus to offset some of the negative impact, but this will be limited by China’s now smaller current account surplus of just under 1% of GDP and the authorities’ desire to keep the current account in surplus. We expect GDP growth to slow to about 6% in this scenario, with some downside risk.
■   Currency: Given a more significant impact on growth, the CNY could weaken by at least 5% to offset the trade negatives, with USD/CNY breaching 7.20. In a worst-case scenario of Mr. Trump imposing tariffs on virtually all imports from China, China could let the CNY fall to around 7.30–7.40 to offset the tariff.
■   Equity: Bank asset quality, company profitability and consumption demand are likely to be affected. Earnings growth estimates for 2019 could be revised lower from 15% to 10%. In this case, anticipate a further 10%–15% correction.
■   Credit: China IG to deliver 5%-6%, benefitting from safe-haven demand. China HY to generate total returns of less than 3%–4% given the strong inverse relation in HY spreads and Chinese equities.

Bull case (20% probability): The USA does not impose further tariffs and strikes a deal with China (similar to that with Mexico) in the next 3–6 months.

■   Macro: Impact on China’s growth outlook will not be significant, in part because we estimate that the direct full-year effect of the current 25% tariffs on USD 50 bn of US imports from China is small at only about 0.2% of GDP. As such, most if not all of this will be offset by the Chinese government’s monetary and fiscal stimulus efforts.
■   Currency: The CNY appreciates to around 6.50 against the USD.
■   Equities: A-shares rebound by 15%–20%, led by banks.
■   Credit: China USD HY +10% outperforms IG +3%.

9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Ethereum – The shadow of Bitcoin? on: October 04, 2018, 06:42:33 PM
When you talk about Cryptocurrency industry, you just can’t go through it without mentioning Bitcoin, and rightly so. And with such scenario, is Ethereum not always a 2nd or a shadow like thing for it?

Do you guys EVER believe in Ethereum pushing Bitcoin or actually over-taking it? In reality, it looks next to impossible but with Ethereum price prediction, it shows a lot of possibilities in years to come! So, I feel and strongly feel it will some day come out from the shadows of Bitcoin.

11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Investing on altcoins... on: September 26, 2018, 09:55:09 PM
I believe we need to be very wise when it comes to investment in Altcoins. The opportunity is there but it only works IF the option selected is good. If our selection of option is not right, then we are most likely to struggle. So, we need to be wise with our choice.

I love options with unique touch, and to me Inlock is really cool creation. It runs around fiat loan by cryptocurrency, which could actually boost the whole industry and is one major reason why I prefer it so much over others right now.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][ICO] 🔥🔥🔥 LiquidTrade 🔥🔥🔥 Tokenized global crowdfunding ecosystem! on: September 25, 2018, 07:25:15 PM
I already mentioned this. I like this concept behind the project. However, my biggest fear is your platform safety much like others! So what confident I can get from this for my funds to be secure??

LiquidTrade has worked with a number of legal advisers to establish the most appropriate legal framework within which to trade crypto assets without putting those assets at risk. There are certainly areas in which traditional legal principles need to apply without direct precedent to crypto assets, but in each case the extension of existing legal principles has been found to be unlikely to lead to unacceptable ambiguity. For the initial analysis, English law was used as the basis of analysis. We look forward to having you on our platform

That's good to know! I am certainly impressed with your project honestly. I have been a fan of crypto exchange platforms for more than three years now. The only challenge I normally have all the platforms I have deal with in the past is that they weren’t viable. Anyhow, I also like to know how viable is the LiquidTrade platform?
