Are you a resident of Colorado Springs? looking for an investment alternative to the stock market?

Bloomberg recently asked experts where they would invest $100,000 right now, and many of them got the same answer: fine art.

Think you can’t afford a Picasso? Well, in 2012, Congress passed the JOBS Act, which allowed for the securing of works of art. A company called Masterpieces.io has built the largest platform for buying and selling art titles. In the past, you could only buy stocks from companies like Apple, but with this investing app, you can unlock this powerful investment.

This means that you can invest in stocks of million dollar works of art. And in these uncertain times, it turns out fine art can be a wise investment. Here’s why:

  • Low correlation with equities according to Citi

We continue to examine the impact of abortion on the midterm elections, as well as the latest district attorney who wants a crack at Donald Trump.


MacKenzie Scott and Michael Bloomberg among top billionaire donors to abortion rights groups

“TAlthough the nation’s wealthiest philanthropists have given to reproductive rights groups for decades, the cause represents a relatively small share of overall philanthropic giving,” reports Rachel Sandler:

According to the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy, $1.7 billion was given to nonprofits for reproductive rights from 2015 to 2019. This represents 2.2% of the $76 billion from foundations during this period.

Even less money, $361 million, was earmarked specifically for abortion rights and services, as opposed to other forms of reproductive health care. Much of that funding comes from the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation, the largest single donor supporting abortion rights in the United States, according to the NCRP. Funded by investor Warren Buffett, the fourth-richest person in the United States, and named after his late wife, the foundation keeps a low profile when it comes to its pro-choice donations. His
website does not even mention reproductive health care and instead focuses on college scholarships for Nebraska students. The foundation did not respond to requests for comment.

U.S. stocks resumed their slide on Wednesday after surprisingly warm ‘core’ inflation data raised expectations of aggressive policy tightening, sending the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite down nearly 30% from its record level.

Growth stocks that are seen as particularly sensitive to rising rates led the declines, with the Nasdaq falling 3.2%. The blue-chip S&P 500, which had risen 1.2% earlier in the trading session, ended the day down 1.6%.

Consumer prices in the world’s largest economy rose at an annual rate of 8.3% in April, up from 8.5% in March, but still at a historically high level. The figure beat economists’ expectations for an 8.1% cooling. The month-to-month change in core inflation – which excludes food and energy prices and is closely watched by economists – also beat forecasts at 0.6%.

Rising costs for new cars, food, air fares and housing were the main drivers of the rise in consumer prices, the US Department of Labor said.

As consumer prices rose, traders expect the Fed to hike interest rates aggressively for the rest of this year, which has put pressure on short-term U.S. government debt.

The yield on the two-year Treasury note, which is particularly sensitive to monetary policy, rose 0.03 percentage point to 2.64%, from less than 0.2% a year ago. Yields rise when prices fall.

In contrast, the 10-year Treasury yield, which is driven by longer-term economic trends, lost 0.06 percentage point to 2.93%.

Airbnb (ABNB -5.07%) released its first-quarter earnings report on May 3. Revenue for the short-term rental platform rose 70% year-over-year to $1.51 billion, beating analyst estimates of $60 million.

Its net loss fell from $1.17 billion to just $19 million, or $0.03 per share, well above analysts’ expectations of $0.27. Its adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of $229 million improved from a loss of $59 million a year earlier, and also marked the first time its adjusted EBITDA from first quarter turned positive.

These numbers are impressive, but investors might wonder if it’s too late to buy Airbnb at these levels. The stock is still trading at 13 times this year’s sales and remains around 130% above its initial public offering (IPO) price. This price has remained more or less stable over the past three months, even as rising interest rates and other macroeconomic headwinds have ravaged higher-growth tech stocks. Let’s dig deeper into Airbnb’s business to see if it’s still a worthwhile investment.

How fast is Airbnb growing?

Airbnb’s revenue fell 30% to $3.4 billion in 2020 as global travel came to a halt during the pandemic. But in 2021, its revenue jumped 77% to $6 billion as those headwinds faded. This post-lockdown recovery follows its year-over-year growth in booked room nights and experiences, gross booking volume (GBV), and total revenue over the past year:

Airbnb’s post-lockdown recovery has made it a more attractive investment than other pandemic-era growth players like e-commerce, remote working and food delivery businesses, which are now facing… difficult year-to-year comparisons.

Airbnb’s business model is also well protected against inflation. Budget-conscious travelers will likely stick to its short-term rentals instead of more expensive hotels, while hosts will routinely rent out their properties to generate more passive income. Contrary to UberTechnologies and Lyft, Airbnb is not exposed to rising fuel and labor costs. All of these assets protected him from being sold off in the tech sector.

Growth in net income stabilizes

In 2020, Airbnb posted a huge net loss of $4.6 billion and a negative EBITDA of $251 million. But in 2021, the net loss narrowed to $352 million and the company generated positive adjusted EBITDA of $1.6 billion. Adjusted EBITDA margins have also remained positive for five consecutive quarters:

Airbnb’s robust revenue growth and stabilizing margins boosted its free cash flow (FCF) 146% year-over-year to a record $1.2 billion in the first quarter. Its total cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities and restricted cash also rose 41% to $9.3 billion.

Pink outlook for the rest of the year

Airbnb expects revenue to grow between 56% and 64% year-over-year in the second quarter. The estimate comes even as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continues to disrupt travel to Europe. In fact, the company pointed out that many users had booked Airbnb rentals in Ukraine after the conflict began, even though they had no intention of going there, in order to give the hosts money. Ukrainians.

As a result, approximately 600,000 nights were still booked in Ukraine during the first quarter for a total GBV of $20 million. This was only 0.1% of its total GBV, but it shows how Airbnb can overcome geopolitical conflicts in less conventional ways than traditional hotel chains.

At the end of April, Airbnb had already booked 30% more nights for the summer season compared to the same period in 2019, and said its growth compared to this pre-pandemic year was “even higher as we look further this year. He also claims his customers are “booking more than ever” and staying longer at his properties.

As a result, analysts expect Airbnb’s revenue and adjusted EBITDA to grow 38% and 50% respectively in 2022. They also expect Airbnb to generate net income of 1.21 billion dollars in a full year.

It’s not too late to buy Airbnb

Airbnb has been a reliable investment over the past few months as it is able to weather many macro headwinds without facing significant macro headwinds.

It still faces regulatory challenges and competition from cheaper hotels and traditional online travel agencies, but its growth rates indicate it is weathering those challenges. Airbnb has now become synonymous with short-term rentals, and this brand recognition could ensure that it remains an attractive alternative to traditional hotels for many years to come.

Its stock may seem a bit pricey right now, but I think investors who accumulate more stock today will be well rewarded in the future.

“While we are positive on consumer spending over the medium to long term, the best way to play it would be through non-FMCG stocks,” says Dipan Mehta, director, Elixir Equities.


HUL performed well, maintaining a solid 4.5% regardless of management’s post-earnings comment, although it was in line with estimates hinting at further pressure on margins. As far as FMCG goes, these are known devils. Would the market have anticipated this and taken them into account?
You’re right, and I wouldn’t rule out some amount of short coverage taking place in HUL at this point. It was an underheld stock and there was always concern that growth would slow. Many of the categories in which they are present have reached the level of maturity and with the type of inflationary pressure we are seeing in this country, there are very strong headwinds for FMCG companies like HUL.

While we are seeing a rally at the moment, I am not excited about HUL’s medium to long term outlook. I know there are many loyal shareholders of HUL who have been sitting on earnings for many years, but such rises are a good opportunity to leave HUL and buy other blue chip companies with equivalent levels corporate governance standards and strong balance sheets but have much higher growth rates.


Go with GCPL or would you say diversify into ITC?
I’m not that bullish on any of the FMCG companies at this point, including ITC. One is better off in some of the other big companies which could be technology, banking and even capital goods. Something like Larsen & Toubro which has more sustainability and earnings growth than the FMCG pack and the same goes for many software companies as well as large cap banks like ICICI, Axis, Kotak and SBI.

They deliver significant earnings growth over the next three to five years, far beyond what FMCG companies have done. Even if you want to play consumer history, FMCG is no longer the way to play it. There are many other micro themes, as well as cap micro stocks to consider. We could look at real estate, automobiles, building materials, appliances, entertainment and travel. All of these are also heavily dependent on consumer spending and this is where the increasingly higher share of the wallet goes to the consumer and not so much to the FMCG. While we are positive on consumer spending over the medium to long term, the best way to play it would be through non-FMCG stocks.

Is it at around Rs 250 still a good buy?
Not sure if this is a good buy as the stock has rallied significantly and it looks like the trade is on the move at this point. So, no need to jump in, but if you are already invested at lower levels, then take advantage of the rally we are seeing right now. The next few quarters will be very interesting for Indian hotels and they could see decent profit growth as they also try to repair their balance sheets.

Overall performance ratios may also improve. But beyond 12-18 months, I’m not sure about continued earnings growth. My issue is with the longevity of earnings growth because ultimately what we’re seeing is a rebound in travel and at some point that’s going to flatten out, but going forward if that’s going to be a consumer spending environment and if it will be rental rates and air travel, then that will definitely impact travel once the pent-up demand is over.

Either way, the hotel business is tough and rates of return are generally low and once you start entering the off season the operating levers start to work against you. So I’m not very positive on the long-term outlook for the hotel industry, but there’s no denying that the next six to nine months could be very positive for this sector and this trade rally that we’re seeing in Indian hotels and some of the others, hotel stocks certainly still have a long way to go.

Investing can be difficult. To be successful, you need to do your research, set a course, and follow it through. Expectations rarely match reality – for better or for worse. But what’s important is that you stick to your plan and remember your central investment thesis, or the very reason you bought a stock in the first place.

During the first week of April, I established new positions in several companies. I want to highlight two: Instantaneous (NYSE: SNAP) and Airbnb (NASDAQ: ABNB). Here I’ll tell you why I bought them and what key developments I’ll be watching.

Instantaneous

What I love about Snap is that it has several key trends on its side. First of all, the company is hugely successful with young people. According to internal data, more than 75% of 13-34 year olds in the US, UK, Australia, France and the Netherlands use Snapchat.

This type of reach is pure gold for advertisers looking to market their products to teenagers and young adults who may be looking to buy their first car, get married, or start a family. Marketers know it’s easier to build brand loyalty among younger people, and they’re willing to pay extra to reach these impressionable consumers.

I also like Snap’s potential synergies with the metaverse. Snap defines itself as a camera company that “contributes to human progress by enabling people to express themselves, live in the moment, learn about the world and have fun together”. This mission statement fits perfectly with the metaverse – a space where users interact with others in computer-generated or augmented reality (AR).

In its most recent quarter, Snap reported that, on average, more than 200 million “snapchatters” engaged with its AR features. Devery day. This includes enterprise user-to-user AR chat lenses, physical element analytics, and local lenses that transform real-world landscapes into AR experiences.Given that most Snap users are already familiar with the company’s AR – and used to interacting with it on their phones – I think Snap has a leg up on competitors like Meta.

Third, Snap’s financial fundamentals are strong. In 2021, revenue reached $4.1 billion, representing 64% year-over-year growth. Gross margins increased to 58%. The number of daily active users increased to 300 million from 245 million the previous year, and the average revenue per user (ARPU) reached $4.06 in the fourth quarter of 2021, up $0.57 from the previous quarter. Additionally, the company is expected to make a profit for the first time in 2022.

Analysts expect earnings per share (EPS) of $0.52 for the full year and $0.01 for the first quarter of 2022. The company will release its first quarter results on April 21. I’ll be keeping a close eye on user growth and ARPU, two of the most important numbers for a social media company.

Airbnb

The second stock I was looking forward to getting my hands on was Airbnb. Like Snap, Airbnb has several megatrends providing it with tailwinds.

First, Americans are starting to travel again. Solid profits from Delta point out that the recovery in commercial travel is real. Without question, the pandemic has created an enormous amount of pent-up vacation demand. And as travel resumes, Airbnb is taking advantage.

The second big reason I wanted to own Airbnb is because of its “disruptive” status. Traditional hotel companies have to make huge capital investments to offer their customers new destinations and newly renovated rooms. On the other hand, Airbnb relies on its hosts to perform the upgrades. Plus, with some four million hosts in its network, Airbnb offers locations and experiences that are hard to match.

Finally, the company’s finances are sound. Revenue for 2021 was $6.0 billion, up 77% from a pandemic-weakened 2020. Analysts expect 2022 EPS to hit $1.34, up from $0.97 two months ago.

The company does not release its first quarter results until mid-May. When they do, I’ll want to see growth in gross booking value and average daily rates, both of which are crucial to Airbnb’s long-term prospects.
