    Starman’s fixed line subs reach 30,000. The Estonian cableTV provider Starman said the number of its fixed line subscribers surpassed 30,000 line in December. In its coverage area, the company has market share of 22% (in total Estonia, its ca 10%). Given that Starman added 3k subs in Q3 and has already added 4k in Q4, they are nicely on track with our forecast. Although revenue from fixed line is not huge, most of the new subs are actually triple play customers – i.e. revenue growth from Internet and TV should be solid as well.

    Apranga (Acc) aims to grow by 40% in 2007. The Lithuanian clothing retailer Apranga released its guidance for 2007. The company expects sales to grow by 40% to LTL 415m (incl. VAT), and a Pre-Tax profit of LTL 31m (margin 8.8%). The company plans to open at least 20 new stores, equal to an expansion growth of 29%, i.e. the expected like-for-like growth is around 10%. We are looking for 2007 sales of LTL 351m, equal to an increase of 30%, and a Pre-Tax profit of LTL 25.5m (margin 8.0%). Our estimates will be raised somewhat. The valuation on the company’s forecast implies a PER 2007 of 16.9x, which is quite attractive compared to the Baltic average PER 2007 of 19.1x.

    Good day for Baltic construction companies. All three Baltic construction companies announced new orders yesterday. Merko will build a 10-storey office building in Tallinn for EEK 116m (EUR 7.4m). The works are scheduled to be completed by January 2008. Eesti Ehitus concluded a contract to perform the construction works of a 72-apartment residential building in Tallinn. The value of the contract is EEK 72m (EUR 4.65m) and works are to be completed by December 2007. The Lithuanian construction company PST will perform construction works of Utena Regional Waste Management System development in total value of LTL 61m (EUR 17.6m).

    Casino on sale. Estonian real estate businessman Margus Reinsalu has put his casino company Kristiine Kasiino on sale. Kristiine Kasiino operates 11 casinos in Estonia. The possible buyers could be Olympic Casino or Russian Ritzio (operates 2 casino chains in Estonia). Olympic’s representatives said they are watching the situation closely but could not comment anything else. Kristiine Kasiino could be worth approximately EEK 250m (EUR 16m).

    TEO (Acc) acquires DTT provider. Lithuanian telecom provider TEO signed an agreement to acquire 100% of Mikrovisatos TV to boost its digital terrestrial television service. ”We [TEO] are actively developing the network of DTT signal transmission in Lithuania. Therefore TEO’s objective to acquire a company operating on the TV re-broadcasting market is the implementation of our strategy,” Arunas Šikšta, from TEO said. The deal should be completed in Feb 2007. Mikrovisatos TV holds 8.2% of the multi-channel subscription TV market.

    Estonian producer prices up 5.4% in November. According to Estonian Statistical Office, producer prices grew by 5.4% y-o-y in November. The price index was mainly influenced by the increase in the manufacture of wood and wood products and building materials. Estonian consumer prices went up by 4.6% y-o-y over the same period.

    Careful: Thin Trading

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep

    --Robert Frost

    The conclusion of the year always produces an odd mix of pressures. Many market players are under great pressure to add on some additional gains, position their portfolios for the final accounting and conclude the year on a positive note. But for many others, especially for those who have done well, the year is essentially over, and the primary goal it to make sure nothing messes up what has been done in the 11.75 months that have preceded.

    For the market, that means we have pockets of listless, random action interspersed with aggressive attempts to rack up some quick gains. The thin market, the slowing news flow and the holiday mood all combine to keep things random and more tricky than usual.

    One thing that often occurs in thin trading is sudden spikes in either direction. Many market participants are sitting idly, without any strong market bias and waiting for a move to develop. Once they see the stirrings of action, they jump in and drive it further, and that attracts more "trend followers" who simply want some quick profits.

    Both the overall market and individual stocks are subject to this condition during the holidays. Generally it's the smaller-caps that are more active, but this year seems a bit different in that regard with big-caps being the primary leaders and smaller stocks showing little life.

    The thin trading also results in traders who target highly shorted stocks for squeezes. A prime example is Mamma Com (MAMA - commentary - Cramer's Take - Rating), which had some minor news recently but has been driven straight up for no reason other than the fact that there are shorts who are trapped and pushing it higher as they are squeezed.

    So be careful as we wind up the year. The trading can be fun and profitable, but it can also be frustrating and dangerous. Play small, be quick and make sure you have your holiday shopping finished or it won't matter how much money you make.

  • Tehnilise poolepealt selline pilt. Panen täna pildile juurde paar teistsugust indikaatorit. Accumulation/Distribution Line, mis käitub sisuliselt nagu OBV ja CMF ning näitab, kas käive toetab liikumist. Näeme, et indikaator on viimase külgsuunalise liikumise ajal langemas ning kui lisada juurde ka 20 päeva libiseva keskmise, siis tehtud on ka negatiivne crossover. Samas 50 päeva libisevast keskmisest asutakse veel ülalpool. Stockchartis tuleb Acc/Dist kastis keskmise arvutamise periood ise käsitsi juurde lisada. Kui varem olen trendi jälgimiseks vaadelnud peamiselt Wilderi DMI'd, siis allumisele pildile on lisatud Aroon. Tähendavad sisuliselt sama asja, kuid arvutamine ja signaalid on teinekord erinevad. Näeme, et aroon UP ehk roheline joon on käinud korraks allpool 70 taset, mis näitab, et tõusutrend on järele andmas. Ka aroon Dn on käinud korra ülalpool 30 taset, kuid on liikunud tagasi neutraalsesse tsooni. Kui need kaks indikaatorit on ristumas ja vahetamas kohti, siis on tegu külgsuunalise liikumise või konsolideerumisega ning kohtade vahetamine registreerib trendi muutuse. Aroon Oscillaator näitab sama asja ühe joonega.
    Kuna indeks on langenud alla 20 päeva libiseva keskmise ning edasine tõus paistab indikaatorite järgi vähe suutlik, siis näeksin esimest toetust 2400 piirl ning 50 päeva libiseval keskmisel.

  • mis te sellest CLX eilsest uudisest kokkuvõttes arvate?

    ma panin eile possu kinni
    mulle see positiivsus ei meeldinud ja järjekordne põrge 35.5 pealt
  • Speedy, kokkuvõttes see meie nägemust ei muuda. Peame praegust hinnataset ikka kalliks. Tehniliselt ei ole aktsia kõige paremini praegu käitunud jah, aga riski/tulu suhe siiamaani meie arvates hea.
  • Tulu nigu põlegi õieti. Püsib stabiilne, ei kuku, ei tõuse ka õneks. Ainult et kui kaua peab seda kannatama...
  • Minu jaoks oli see CLX suhteliselt neutraalne uudis. Erilist kullaauku ma selles Colgate Palmolive brandide ostmises ei näe. Pigem jääb mulje, et firma ei leia móistlikumaid rahapaigutamise vóimalusi.
    Mina ootan veebruarini, kuni tulemused tulevad. Midagi väga head ma sealt näha ei looda, seega usun et saab lühikese positsiooni ikka kasumiga kinni panna.
    A vóib-olla ma pole päris objektiivne, sest töötan CLX konkurendi juures.
  • ma ootan paremat võimalust uueks sisenemiseks
    kas siis uuesti 65 pealt või 63.5 lähedal oleva toetuse läbides
  • Meie nägemuse kohaselt ei ole see diil samuti suure kaaluga ning nii tühja pipeline juures situatsiooni ei muuda. Lisaks on tugevalt käitunud kogu sektor (CL, PG), kuna seda peetakse ka "kaitsvaks" sektoriks.
