9 January 2020

Welcome back. We trust you enjoyed the fine weather over the festive season and are excited about the investment opportunities this year. The NZX50G increased 32.59% for the 2019 year (4/01/2019 to 3/01/2020). Last year saw the highest returns for the NZX50G since the bull run that started in March 2009 (GFC recovery). This makes investors nervous as there is a lot of discussion about when the bull will sleep, and the bear will wake. As an investor it is important to ensure your portfolio is correctly balanced so that you are positioned to take advantage if the market does turn. Contact your Financial Adviser to ensure your portfolio is correctly balanced.





In summary, the NZX50G had 17 companies on the downside, 3 remained unchanged and 30 companies were on the upside. The first Global Dairy Trade auction (GDT) was held 7 January. Results were positive, up 2.8%, a great improvement from the -5.1% results on 17 December. Total metric tonne (MT) sold was 33,050 at average price of $3,371.





  • Metlifecare’s share price has continued to increase as the board has recommend that shareholders accept an offer by Asia Pacific Village Group to buy it for $7 NZD per share, a 67% premium to Metlifecare’s 52 week trading low.
