Default 2005 The year of the Kospi

Invest in Korea.

Last upteen times the dollar fell this hard vs the yen, and the asian markets closed out a year very strong
the Nikkei and Kospi have responded with unbelievable years. Kospi avg is arnd 45% for the following year.

Taking a shot with KF.
In at 18.885.
Ck back next 1/5/5 and see what happens.

Default RE:2004 The year of the Kospi

Hello TA,

Good to see you visit Stock Talk,
Agree that Korea should do well, as should other Asian markets.

See that Asian Index MSCI Index hit a 4 year high.
Tokyo's Nikkei just hit a 11 week high.

Other than some kind of bear Market bounce or until the Fed raises
interst rates, the long term direction of the US Dollar
should remain the same. Although the dollar fallen so far,
one has to imagine some sort of bounce is just around the corner.

See the KF has risen 70.26 % off it's March 2003 lows.

Researched a little on potential stocks in the Far East.

A couple others in Korea POSCO (PKX) NYSE
Samsung Electronics, the #1 Memory Chip Maker is another one.
Hynix Semiconductor

In Taiwan:
United Microelectronics Corporation (2303.TW)
Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation (2330.TW)

we'll have to keep an eye on the opportunites in the
Far East,

good luck this year,

baz

Hi Baz,
I also looked at EWJ and EPP,
they both track the MSCI Index,
historically though the Koreans have outperformed the Japanese in this spot.

Default RE: 2004 The year of the Kospi

Hello TA,

Will be looking very hard at opportunities in the Far East. Will check out EWJ and EPP.
We'll have to see how each conuntry does. Japan has more balance sheet concerns and at times, seem more inherently structually flawed.
Japan's early commitment to nanotechnology is one positive step in the future for them.
China is another market which is booming with potential. Was taken back when I heard that they graduated more engineers from one
University than the US combined! Unfortunately, their non-progressive Government is a concern.

Lately, I've been studying a lot of nanotechnolgy. Here's a few items:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The industries that nanotechnology will likely have a disruptive effect on in the near term include the following:
(Amounts are Billions of US Dollars)

* $1,700 Healthcare
* $600 Long Term Care
* $550 Electronics
* $550 Telecom
* $480 Packaging
* $450 U.S. Chemical
* $460 Plastics
* $182 Apparel
* $180 Pharmaceutical
* $165 Tobacco

* $100 Semiconductor
* $92 Hospitality / Restaurant
* $90 US Insurance
* $80 Corrosion Removal
* $83 Printing
* $57 US Steel
* $43 Newspaper
* $42 Diet Supplement
* $40 Diet
* $32 Publishing
* $30 Catalysts
* $27 Glass
* $24 Advertising
* $18 Cosmetics
* $13 Chocolate
* $10 Battery
* $5 Blue Jeans
* $4 Khakis
* $2.8 Fluorescent Tagging
* $.70 Mouthwash

Disruptive Technology: Technology that is significantly cheaper than current, and/or is much higher
performing, and/or has greater functionality, and/or is more convenient to use. Will revolutionize
worldwide markets by superseding existing technologies. "Paradigm shifting" is a well-worn connotation.
Although the term may sound negative, it is in fact neutral.
It is only potentially negative to organizations that are unprepared for change, and fail to adapt,
only to fall behind, and ultimately disappear. The results are not just evolutionary, they are revolutionary.

Figures are from: "The Next Big Thing Is Really Small: How Nanotechnology Will Change the
Future of Your Business."
Jack Uldrich & Deb Newberry Read our review

Here's an example:

Nano-bullets kills tumours
Nano-bullets kill cancer tumours

By NANONORDIC.COM STAFF REPORTER
Silica particles plated with gold can seek and destroy inoperable cancer tumours.

The nano-bullets heat up when near infrared light is shone on them and this kills cancer
cells. Tests conducted on human breast cancer, both in the test tube and in tumours in mice,
have been very successful.

The study was conducted by a team of researchers at Rice Unviersity, US and they created
nanoparticles from a non-conducting core of silica with a diameter of 110 nanometers thick
and a 10 nanometer thick metal shell. The reason why gold was used was because it is
biologically inert. When the nanoshells were added to human breast cancer cells in the
test tube, and exposed to near infrared light 100% of the tumour were killed.
Jennifer West said in an article in NewSicentist that they say no changes in cell
viability with just nanoshells or just the laser,

The team also injected the nanoshells directly into the tumours if living mice and
applied near infrared light. The tumours were destroyed within days. The team has
now engineered the nanoshells to specifically target tumour cells. In a study submitted
to Cancer Letters, they injected mice with nanoshells attached to an antibody that only
binds to cancer cells. According to the researchers the tumours were completely destroyd
and 150 days later the mice were alive with no tumour growth. The researchers now hope that
thebnanoshells could be used as a precautionary method killing cancer cells while they are too
small to be detected. The study has been published in Proceedings of the National Academy
of Sciences.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Of course, these are very speculative stocks and no doubt volitile in nature.
I know that large funds generally invest iin start ups, but there's
something to be said about getting in on the ground floor[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif[/img]

Here's how some of them have done since being placed on our WatchList:

TINY.............15.70...... 11/16/03...........+126.22%
VECO.............30.92...... 11/16/03...........+17.70%
ALTI............. 2.60...... 07/31/03...........+170.83%
NGEN............. 9.67...... 07/31/03...........+170.87%
NANX............. 9.30...... 07/31/03...........+101.78%

Frankly, it's such a vast and broad field it's tough to get a handle on it.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

good luck today,

baz

Default RE:2004 The year of the Kospi

I 've read some of your posts abt nano. The last sentence above sums it up, it is very broad and full of speculation. I recently saw a program on investing in it and the guy's conclusion abt finding a nano fund where the risk is spread out, may be the most prudent way to play it.

Default RE:2004 The year of the Kospi

TA,

Would agree that it's always a good idea to spead one's risk.
Judging from the list below of the Companies involved in nanotechnology,
letting a mutual fund manager do the research would save a lot of effort.

Nanotechnology is both diverse and complex. The more scientific knowledge
one has, the better. There are many web-sites that help in understanding the field.
However, believe that investing in individual stocks has certain advantages over mutuals.
It's rests with each Investor's preference whether to have a professional select stocks
for them or do their own research.
The stocks on our www.clearstation.com Watch List, were taken from the results
of a survey of participants from the Nano2003 Nanotechnology Conference and Trade Show
asking them which stocks they expected to have immediate impacts. Another method was to
to compile the list of well repected Technology Venture Funds portfolio's of nanotech stocks
and see which stocks were repeated on the various lists.

Monday's action:
NANO +1.8% on 2053% increase in daily average volume.
NNPP +1.8% on +55.8% increase in daily average volume.
NPCT +71.6 % on +3261% increase in daily average volume.
NANX +1.1% on +3850% increase in daily average volume.
ALTI +10.1% on +2644 incerase in daily average volume.


These stocks have taken off since late December.
NGEN and TINY may be on the verge of spiking down.
A market for nimble traders and stop losses. Liquidity may be a problem too.

Like NNPP due to Patent 5,733,921 held by through its subsidiary
Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI)
The patent covers "carbon nanotubes" used in cathodes for
electronic emitters.


have a good day in the Markets,

Default RE:2004 The year of the Kospi

'Land of Morning Calm' proves itself
More upbeat prospects seen for South Korea in 2004

By Allen Wan, CBS.MarketWatch.com
Last Update: 2:58 PM ET Jan. 19, 2004







SEOUL (CBS.MW) -- The Land of the Morning Calm retained its cool under pressure last year.














South Korea is proving itself -- under duress
Land of morning calm proves itself under duress


Despite a brief slide into recession, South Korea's economy grew at nearly 3 percent in 2003 while the stock market went up almost 30 percent as the country weathered a flood of tumultuous events, including a credit-card crisis, corporate scandals, presidential woes and tensions with North Korea.

"I think we have to give credit to strong exports and the booming global equity market," said Frederick Jiang, co-manager of the Ivy Pacific Opportunities Fund (IPOAX: news, chart, profile).

South Korea's gains may not seem unusual given the global equities rally, but few countries had to weather the assortment of domestic and external shocks like it did last year, coming out relatively unscathed.

At home, economic growth was cut in half as the country slipped into recession in the first half of the year -- the first time since 1998 -- due to effects of Iraq, severe acute respiratory syndrome, a strong won currency and slumping domestic consumption.

The country got a new president, Roh Moo Hyun, a former human-rights lawyer who had very little political experience and alienated the Americans with his stance on North Korea and other issues.

Scandal followed scandal, starting with SK Global, the unit of one Korean conglomerate, or chaebol, and ending with LG Card, the unit of South Korea's second-biggest business group.

It was a near-blowup for LG Card that probably topped the list of worries. Given the country's bad history with debt (with the best example in the 1997 Asian financial crisis), there were real concerns that a collapse of the top credit-card issuer due to unpaid customer bills could undermine the financial system. But two bailouts later, LG Card has survived to borrow another day.

"I think the credit-card situation is stabilizing and the impact will be minimal," John Lee, portfolio manager of The Korea Fund (KF: news, chart, profile), said in an interview.

Lee, like several of the analysts, strategist and fund managers surveyed by CBS MarketWatch, thinks the worst is over for the country's banks and credit-card companies and a recovery in the financial sector could help unleash the bulls on South Korea in 2004.

One of the main beneficiaries will be the Kospi stock market, which could soar past the 1,000 level this year, analysts say. The benchmark index, which rose 27 percent last year despite the economic and political woes, currently stands at almost 850.

"I think it will definitely break 1,000," said Daniel Yoo, equity strategist at Salomon Smith Barney's Seoul office, in an interview.

The broker has set a target of 1,025 for the index, which would mark a gain of 28 percent.

There are several good reasons to believe that South Korea's financial markets will rally further this year: a strengthening global economy led by the United States, expectations for a near-doubling of economic growth as domestic demand recovers, continuation of the trend of booming exports to countries like China and easing North Korean tensions.



Yoo also likes the fact that South Korean stocks are just plain cheap.

He says that South Korea is one of most undervalued markets in Asia with 2004 price earnings of less than 8 times, at the same time it has the strongest earnings per share growth in the region -- at around 50 percent.

"This means it should have among the highest upside potential of Asian markets and we expect Korea to outperform the rest of the region over the next six to nine months."

That is not to say that Yoo doesn't have reservations.

On the monetary side, he worries that the government might tighten monetary policy too early. On the fiscal side, he's concerned that the government could take action against the country's troubled credit-card companies that could lead to a contraction of credit in the economy.

"I'm worried that the closure of credit-card companies could take credit out of the system and lead to vicious cycle of rising delinquencies."

Many other analysts, including Yoo, are also concerned that President Roh could backtrack on the gains he has made in reforming the economy and political system under pressure from March parliamentary elections.

Roh, who swept into office last February with pledges to root out corruption and reform the country's conglomerates, has made headway on his promises, even sending the head of the powerful SK Group to jail.

"The disclosures of scandals are a good thing and the arrest of the chairman is healthy," said The Korea Fund's Lee. "This is a reform-minded government but Roh is losing popularity and I don't think he can continue to reform and deregulate. The risk is that Roh is losing popularity and that could stall reforms."

"The disclosures of scandals are a good thing and the arrest of the chairman is healthy." John Lee, manager of The Korea Fund


Roh's popularity is plunging at a time when he is making progress on an issue that has bedeviled his predecessors -- North Korea.

Following a ratcheting of tensions earlier in 2003 as Pyongyang test-fired missiles in waters off Japan, the situation had calmed to such a degree that some analysts think a breakthrough could be had in the next round of six-way talks involving the United States, North and South Korea, China, Japan and Russia, expected sometime in the first quarter.

"Things are better," admits Kim Myong Choi, the executive director of the pro-Pyongyang Center for Korean-American Peace. "I think we will likely see America agree to the Chinese proposal to establish diplomatic relations between Pyongyang and Washington." Also, read about tourist plans for North Korea.

GDP growth seen at 5%

The South Korean economy is set to rebound sharply from a consumption-driven slowdown last year. Analysts expect the world's 12th biggest economy to grow at least 5 percent this year after slumping by half to 3 percent in 2003. The South Korean government itself is forecasting a lofty target of 6.5 percent in 2004.

"Sufficient progress will have been made on resolving the financial sector vulnerabilities that domestic demand will strengthen in the second half of the year," said Deutsche Bank's chief economist for Asia Michael Spencer.

He is predicting gross domestic product growth of 5 percent, spurred on by a continuation of the trend of booming exports from the country's top companies like Samsung Electronics (SSNGY: news, chart, profile) and Hyundai Motor (HYMLY: news, chart, profile).

But not all are convinced that the credit-card crisis is over.

"The credit-card crisis is very serious and it is far from over," said Jiang of the Ivy Pacific Opportunities Fund. "According to Standard and Poor's, the combined negative net asset value of the seven card companies is equivalent to 1.3 percent of the nation's estimated GDP. This is indeed very big. The recent bailout of LG Card is an important step, but I am not sure if the worst is already behind us."

Earlier this month, LG Card's 16 creditor banks, including top lender Kookmin (KB: news, chart, profile), agreed to bail out the credit-card firm in a $4.5 billion deal that will have the state-run Korea Development Bank and the government take on more responsibility if LG Card runs into financial trouble in the future rather than the private banks.

UBS equity strategist Duncan Wooldridge is also a little more cautious on the economic front and is predicting 4.5 percent growth for South Korea in 2004.

"We are a little more cautious for two reasons," he said. "Fixed investment has been weaker than expected. We also see exports strong in the first half but some moderation in the second half driven by tightening in the Chinese economy," he said in an interview.

The broker expects fixed investment growth at 1.8 percent this year (against a 2.2 percent estimate in 2003) along with export growth of 20 percent.

At Merrill Lynch, economist TJ Bond is pegging growth at a more bullish 5.5 percent on the back of rising consumption along with soaring exports. "Exports should remain the principal engine of growth, with rising demand from the U.S. and Asia offsetting a modest slowdown in China," he said in a recent note.

The China boom

The analysts say growth in South Korea's export-driven economy will hinge on China, which has emerged as one of its most important trading partners.

While China enjoys a massive $100 billion-plus trade surplus with the United States, the mainland runs deficits with the rest of Asia, including South Korea. China imported $35.7 billion worth of goods from South Korea last year and that figure is expected to jump to $47.5 billion this year, South Korea's commerce ministry estimates.

"I really think China plays will be the big story for the Korean economy along with improving corporate governance, a pickup in consumer demand and restructuring in the financial sector," said Lee of The Korea Fund.

Jiang of the Ivy Pacific Opportunities Fund thinks that China is the key issue to watch as the government may take steps to slow down an economy that grew at almost 9 percent last year.

"I think investors should monitor Chinese money supply growth closely. A slow down in Chinese economy may have a big impact on regional economy and market sentiment," he said in an interview.

For the Koreans, China's growing economic might is a doubled-edged sword. They welcome the country's need to import massive amounts of raw materials and industrial goods, but also worry that the world's most populous nation's growing competitiveness may further accelerate the hollowing out of industries as it has already done in Japan. Lee, for one, thinks that South Korea has a five-year head start over China and that it ought to take advantage of this by boosting exports before the future Samsungs of China start producing enough quality locally.

Foreigners' favorite: Samsung

For now, China will continue to be a voracious buyer of Korean goods and that bodes well for the country's top exporters like Samsung and Hyundai as well as steelmaker Posco (PKX: news, chart, profile).



Few foreign investors branch out beyond these well-known names and the fund managers are largely the reason why. Samsung keeps popping up as the favorite among the fund managers, including Lee, who has made the electronics giant his top holding in The Korea Fund.

Foreigners own 58 percent of the electronics giant, which makes everything from memory chips and flat-screen televisions to cell phones. It is the world's biggest producer of memory chips.

"I still like Samsung Electronics a lot," said Jiang. "It has a world-wide leading position in each of its major product line and we see strong growth in TFT-LCD, Nand Flash, system LSI and mobile handset market this year. Samsung generates more than $10 billion operating cash flow per annum. Any other companies that can generate that much cash flow all have a market cap of at least $100 billion. Samsung's market cap is only $64 billion at today's price."

Samsung, whose stock price has recently been hitting record highs, reported a 24 percent jump in net profits in the fourth quarter to 1.86 trillion won ($1.6 billion) due to booming chip sales.

But with hopes for a rebound in consumption, some analysts are looking at financial stocks as well. Both Yoo and Wooldridge are increasing their exposure to the financial sector, especially banks such as Kookmin and Hana. "We think banks are the potential prime beneficiaries of a domestic economic recovery, which we expect in 2004."

Jiang also likes the refineries and chemical companies such as SK Corp. and Hanwha Chemical but is less bullish on Korea Electric Power as well as Posco (PKX: news, chart, profile). "A higher domestic steel price is likely to be offset by rising iron ore and coal prices; for another, I expect investment capex [spending] to cool down in China and drag down regional steel price in the second half."

For South Korea, 2004 is already shaping up to be a better year as the country's top companies like Samsung report record operating profits and the credit-card crisis is no longer in the daily headlines.

Default RE:2004 The year of the Kospi

Korea cuts rates this AM and pretty much insures the KOSPI will be the single best performing index of the year.
