Thanks for comments everyone - agree $10k in adjusted PV terms is significant - i must stress however to all as disclosed always do your own research or get advice before making any decisions.

On A 130-year Compounder -

Great piece - awesome. I would add under what to look for; 1. who has funding, 2. management, and 3. register. That would materially change the preferred portfolio in my opinion.

On The metal you can't live without -

Great article - excellent point on Working Capital. My preference however is Z1P (Zip Co). It is 400% cheaper to APT in ratio of market cap / vendor count. Future is bright for both APT and Z1P

On Much more growth ahead for Afterpay -

Very nice to see FMG being supported. It still remains the #1 Acquirer Mutiple. Many thanks to LiveWire for publishing my earlier piece on FMG

On What Mattered Today: Why we own FMG -

On How I’m playing the return of inflation -
