Quitter la France, c'est maintenant!

Quitter la France, c'est maintenant! | Culture, Humour, the Brave, the Foolhardy and the Damned | Scoop.it
'Vous m’avez bien lu : je vous invite à la désertion. Il faut quitter le navire. Lapidez-moi, jetez-moi au bûcher, édictez toutes les fatwas du monde contre mon pessimisme, vous n’y changerez rien : le bonheur est ailleurs.
Il faut tordre le cou au mythe des lendemains qui chantent. La France ne renaîtra pas. Le cancer est trop général. Inutile d’ailleurs de placer un espoir démesuré dans la présidentielle de 2017 : ni Valls, ni Le Pen, ni Sarko 2, ni Hollande 2, ni Mélenchon ne joueront les Jeanne d’Arc. Il n’y a plus d’espoir.
En 1913, la France était la première nation du monde. Cent ans plus tard, elle essaie de se persuader qu’elle est encore la cinquième puissance économique du globe. Qui croit encore dans ce mensonge ? Les socialistes, les syndicats et quelques intellectuels proches du PS. « La France, c’est les Deux-Sèvres », s’était écrié Céline après-guerre. Prophétique…
Pourquoi sommes-nous condamnés ? Parce que nous sommes la nation la plus fainéante de la terre (une vérité statistique irréfutable). Parce que nous sommes la nation la plus taxée de la planète (200 milliards d’impôts de plus qu’en Allemagne). Parce que nos syndicats sont arriérés. Parce que nous méprisons l’économie de marché, le profit et la réussite. Parce que, année après année, le coût du travail anéantit notre économie. Parce que notre code du travail est une usine à gaz irréformable. Parce que notre personnel politique n’a pas de courage et pas de culture économique. Parce que le clientélisme est devenu le panaris de la démocratie française. Parce que la générosité publique n’a plus de limites. Parce que l’aide médicale de l’État accordée à des centaines de milliers d’étrangers en situation irrégulière est un anachronisme intolérable en période de crise. Parce que aucun peuple au monde n’aurait toléré ce que les Français acceptent depuis des années. Parce que, les socialistes l’ont bien compris, le contribuable français est couard et soumis.
Que vous soyez riche, pauvre, étudiant, chômeur, retraité, tirez-vous ! Que vous soyez gay, père de famille nombreuse, libre-penseur, parpaillot ou bouddhiste, si vous savez baragouiner trois mots d’anglais, barrez-vous à New York, Singapour, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Dublin, Londres, Sydney, Le Cap, Casablanca, Maputo, Oulan-Bator… Bien sûr, dans ces contrées lointaines, l’herbe n’est pas toujours plus verte qu’en France. Mais au moins elle pousse, alors que chez nous le gazon n’en finit plus de crever.
Vous emporterez avec vous un petit morceau de France. De temps en temps, dans votre nouveau pays, vous vous enivrerez des soleils du passé : de Gaulle, le Concorde, Brassens, Barbara, la Citroën Maserati, Jean-Pierre Melville…
Allez, un dernier petit effort, quittez ce pays qui se regarde mourir. En restant, vous lui feriez trop d’honneur...'

Cohen.  “As President Obama has made clear, we will continue to impose costs in direct response to Russia’s provocative acts, even as we have made clear there is a path to de-escalate the situation in Ukraine that respects Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and takes account of Russia’s legitimate interests

Don’t Panic…Buy BP Instead @investorseurope offshore stock brokers

As I sit writing this piece, on Thursday afternoon in the US, I am looking at a screen filled with red and am reminding myself of the sage advice from the cover of “The Hitchhikers Guide to The Galaxy”…”DON’T PANIC”. I couldn’t find the “large, friendly letter” font that this should, according to the Hitchhiker’s Guide author Douglas Adams, be written in, but they are wise words nonetheless.


In fact, if you are to be successful as either a trader or investor, you should do as the denizens of dealing rooms do, and see any volatility as opportunity rather than a cause for panic. That, however, is one of those things that are a lot easier to say than do. We are all aware of Warren Buffet’s admonition to be “greedy when others are fearful”, but those of us old enough to have traded through 2000 and 2001 as well as 2008-9 cannot help but worry. The day traders among you will naturally see this as traders do; any movement, up or down, is a chance to profit. For longer term investors, however, they may be tempted to sell and sit out the next few days or weeks. That would be a mistake in my opinion.

In fact, if you think about it logically, particularly for energy investors, nothing about your base case for investing has changed. The world’s population is still growing and they are still demanding increasing amounts of energy, even as the companies that fill that need become cheaper every minute. Any weakness in those best placed to benefit from the big picture, namely large multi-national oil companies, should be seen as simply an opportunity to buy their stock at a discount.

In these days of 24/7 coverage of news in general and financial news in particular it is easy to exaggerate every problem’s potential to cause disaster. It wasn’t that long ago that Greece, for example was, according to some, about to cause the collapse of the world’s financial system. At that time, anybody predicting an oversubscribed auction of Greek government debt at all, let alone a 5 year bond with a yield under 5%, would have been seen as a lunatic, but that is what we saw this morning. When you look at what is happening now, bear that in mind.

This is not a drop caused by worries about either the US or the global economy. It is a correction led by sectors that have looked frothy for a while, such as biotech and social media stocks. When companies are valued based on the cleverness of their idea, rather than their ability to make money, problems will inevitably follow. It is likely that more speculative areas of the energy markets will be dragged with them as the general appetite for risk fades, but there is nothing to suggest that the demand for energy, nor the profits of the major players in that market, will be hit in any way. Today’s drop, while especially scary following a few days of volatility, is more technical than fundamental in nature. It may continue for a while, so I would favor averaging in any available cash rather than trying to pick the bottom of the move, but I firmly believe it is a time for energy investors to be buying, not selling.

If I have convinced you that the smart money will be entering the market as others exit, then the next logical question is, what should you buy? Suggesting purchases of huge multi-national companies, such as Exxon Mobil (XOM) and BP (BP) is hardly a sexy call, but at a time when risk is out of favor, it may well be a smart one. Think of it as building the core of your energy portfolio rather than as a trade for short term profit.

BP in particular is appealing to me.


The stock had been under pressure prior to this current bout of general market volatility, largely due to concerns about the company’s deep involvement in Russia, a potential problem explored in depth in this FT article. It is, I suppose, possible that this exposure could cause problems, but history tells us that it is far more likely that we will all have forgotten about it in six months.

Of course, Russia is not Greece and the potential problems are different, but a company with the size and scope of BP, at around 6.5 times trailing earnings looks like a steal to me and a chance too good to miss. You may prefer the less risky Exxon Mobil (XOM) if Russia really bothers you. That too is trading at a decent looking trailing P/E around 13, but the double whammy of geopolitical concern and market panic has left BP with significantly more upside, meaning that there are potentially good rewards for that extra risk.

Whichever path you chose, however, the important thing is to see this correction as just that, a correction. The bubbly valuation of biotech and mobile stocks has nothing to do with the fundamental case for investing in energy, nor with the potential profitability of that sector’s biggest players. What it will do is drag down the price of their stock, and for the investor who remembers the Hitchhikers Guide’ wise advice, that is just an opportunity.
