Ryan Kia (of Quantiumresearch.co.uk) presents an investment case for Alibaba Group ($BABA).  He also dives deep into the company's financials (P/E ratios, earnings data stats, relative valuations to peers etc...). We bring up the recent fears of a rotation away from "growth" stocks, and into "value" stocks, discussing the degree of truth that appears within. After a messy battle with regulators, Ant's IPO failed to complete (the company was expected to be valued at around $280bn vs the previous expectation of $150bn, as a result of a surge in investor interest for the listing). Ryan outlines both positive and negative potential newsflow & factors which will determine the direction in which $BABA shares will go next.    ~ Ryan Rahimikia

Ryan Kia (of quantiumresearch.co.uk) takes a look at the "Rise of The Coca-Cola Company":Coca Cola is one of the most iconic brands on the planet. But with 127 years of history, it has been a long and bumpy road.Part 3 looks at the developments leading up to an explosion in the demand for bottled coke in the domestic American consumer marketPreviously on "The Rise of The Coca-Cola Company":In last week's episode of the "Quantium Cast", we introduced two new characters: Benjamin Franklin Thomas and Joseph Brown Whitehead.These two characters presented a proposition of bottling coke to Asa Candler (the CEO of the coca-cola company at the time). We also included some context surrounding the come-up of Asa Candler. We then arrive at his firm response to the bottling proposition, influenced heavily by his past attachment to the business, seeing as he had been building up the coca-cola brand for over a decade. Candler believed that the cost of the bottling machinery and the general capital expenditure required would simply be too much for the firm to handle. He also believed that investing in such a risky idea for the firm would be unnecessary as they had been delivering growth on profit forecasts, year after year.Candler ultimately relented and, under the assumption that Thomas and Whitehead would likely bankrupt themselves, Candler issued the two businessmen with "perpetual contracts" of which consisted of them purchasing the syrup from Coke at a large mark-up to use in bottling coke. In next week's episode, we will be looking at how the bottlers engaged with the coca-cola company (and any disputes). We will then round the episode off with an introduction to "Candler's great mistake", leading to his sale of the company in 1919. Be sure to sign up to quantiumresearch.co.uk for updates.
Ryan Kia (of quantiumresearch.co.uk) takes a look at the "Rise of The Coca-Cola Company":Coca Cola is one of the most iconic brands on the planet. But with 127 years of history, it has been a long and bumpy road.Part 2 looks at the Joseph Biedenharn's "Great Idea" to bottle Coca Cola in the late 19th century, intended to open up Coke beyond its largest sales channel of "Soda Fountains" (businesses popularised by figures like James Tufts, the Massachusetts Entrepreneur, in 1876).Ryan also introduces two new characters: Benjamin Franklin Thomas, and Joseph Brown Whitehead. These characters present their proposition of bottling Coca-Cola to Asa Candler, building on Biedenharn's initial idea. Including some context as to how Candler got to where he was in Coca Cola, we arrived at his conclusion, influenced heavily by his past attachment to the business (working there for over a decade). Candler believed that the cost of bottling machinery and the general capital expenditure required to carry out such an operation would simply be "too much" for the firm to handle. Candler also believed that investing in such a risky idea for the firm would be unnecessary as they were continuously beating profit expectations (year on year). His overthinking of the proposition viewed it as "potentially harmful" to the existing sales channel through the "Soda Fountains".
