Risk off is when investors/traders move out of the stock into other places deemed safe like treasuries.  And when they feel safe and comfortable about the market they move into the stock and that is Risk on.    

 


 Can One Country be  in Recession when the rest of the World is not?

I need to understand how does recession work as at times one would hear that Spain is in recession when other European countries are not.

It is possibile for one country to be in recession when others are not and the economic woes of one country can have impact on the other hence intervention is needed to revive the economy.  What triggers recession in any country is when the Gross Domestic Product(GDP) falls below 5-10 percent for two or more quarters consecutively. The GDP can be defined as the total market value of services, goods, investment and labor within a country in a given period of time, which is usually one year.   The moment most people loose jobs at the region of 7 million or so that may lead to depression.

Firstly we need to understand what the abbreviations stand for:  SME stands for Small Medium Enterprise and SMME stands for Small Medium Micro Enterprise. 

SMME are companies that are below R5 million turn over per annum, this is the standard for generic broad-based BEE scorecard purpose. SMMEs encompass a very broad range of firms, from established  traditional family businesses employing over a hundred people (medium-sized enterprises), down to the survivalist self-employed from the poorest layers of the population (informal micro-enterprises).   And the SME are companies with turnover of between R5 million to R35 million.  SMEs contributes between 52 to 57% of GDP and  provide 61% to employment.


 

 Am I not entitled to company's Annual Report?

I am one of the people who benefited from BEE employee share scheme where large sum was paid in dividends, from that I got convinced by my lawyer to buy 10% shares in a start-up company and I have been receiving dividends but my main concern is that there is no Annual financial report that I receive from the company . Am I not entitled to such report or is my shareholding so little that I should not get information?

Privately owned companies are not obliged to disclose its financial dealings. The owners can make available certain information that according to them will not compromise their operations.  But in the event that the company approach individuals and offer shares or investment opportunity such company subjects itself to the law that governs Public company and is therefore expected to make available to its investors the financial report.  Therefore you need to raise it with your lawyer or the company that you invested in.  Make them aware that you would like to receive detailed information about company’s performance.  In most cases people invest in companies that are not operational, they in other hand invest the money some where else and you get paid from the dividends they received than from direct business operations.
