MediaRing

BT - 07 Jan 2010


MediaRing dials up a new brand name

Products to be rebranded under Spicei2i; change of CEO from April


HOMEGROWN Internet telephony services group MediaRing will herald a new era with a fresh identity and a new leader.

Following a deal with India's Spice Group - a telecommunications and entertainment conglomerate owned by flamboyant billionaire Bhupendra Kumar Modi - MediaRing's products will now be rebranded under the Spicei2i name.

This reflects the company's ambition to expand beyond Singapore and India to other countries in the so-called 'Israel to Indonesia belt', Mr Modi told reporters at a briefing yesterday.

'Singapore will serve as a springboard through which the Spicei2i concept will be introduced to the rest of the region,' he said.

Spice bought a $60 million stake in the Singapore company last August to become its single largest shareholder.

The deal resulted in sweeping changes to MediaRing's management team. These included Mr Modi's appointment as company chairman and Spice Global's group president of finance Ashok Kumar Goyal as its new chief executive.

With MediaRing's integration into Spice Group now complete, Mr Goyal will hand over the CEO reins to Maneesh Tripathi, a former senior executive with IBM Asia-Pacific, from April. However, Mr Goyal will remain an executive director of MediaRing.

Beyond its core Internet telephony business, MediaRing's operations will be beefed up to include two other Indian companies that Spice recently acquired for around US$2 million: a small IT services firm, and a call centre.

In addition, a new handset distribution arm will be folded under MediaRing to create a combined entity with almost 5,000 employees. This is the precursor to the launch of a range of Spice-branded handphones aimed at the youth market.

In Singapore, these handsets are set to make their debut 'within the next 10 days', said Mr Goyal.

They will be sold at retail level without operator contracts and support MediaRing's Internet telephony applications for making cut-priced, Web-based calls.

Spice chose Singapore as its global headquarters in August 2008 and set aside US$200 million then for its regional expansion.

After factoring in its investment in MediaRing, the remainder of this war chest will be used to pursue other acquisitions in the region, Mr Modi said.

In addition to renaming the products, Spice intends to shed the MediaRing name altogether, but the change will be confirmed only in April.

MediaRing shares closed 17.4 per cent higher at 27 cents yesterday

靠产业致富的人多 靠股票致富的人少

04/01/2010

李财有方: 靠产业致富的人多 靠股票致富的人少
买产业做投资的人都知道,产业长期一定是上涨的,所以他们在买进时都已经做好了长期的准备,不会轻易的在短期内卖出。

就是这个简单的理由,投资产业的人都可以达到致富的目标。

而买股票做投资的人却是相反,他们认为股票是波动激烈的投资工具,能够上也能够下,风险很高,所以他们只看短期。

打从买进的那一刻开始,他们就已经做好短期投资的准备,见利套利,以投机的心态把股票当作商品来买卖。

人性都有个弱点:怕输。
买进后如果股价下跌,他们就会死守不卖。

他们会这样想:不卖就不算亏。买股票是为了赚钱,那有亏本卖的理由?

如果股价继续的下降,他们就会安慰自己:股票投资是看长期,短期的波动算什么?反正专家都这样讲:买股票要赚大钱就要收长期。

在被套牢后才改变思想,准备做持久战,这种战略就值得商议。

如果刚巧买进的股票是基本因素良好的股,那么长期持有就是可行的做法。

买股票不能靠运气
买进时没有做功课,那么事后可以补做吗?人的心理都是一样的:股票都已经买了,价钱都已经亏了,那里还有心情去查它的底,就算查到是烂臭股又如何?难道要我亏本卖?

就是这心理,害得股票投资者输得不清不楚。

股票和产业都是一样的,要长期持有才能见功效。
不是每个股票都是可以买来收的,只有素质好,年年赚大钱的公司才有机会像产业那样慢慢的增值。听清楚,是慢慢的增值。

股票增值和股价上升是两回事。
股票增值是指它的内在因素,例如净资产值增加了。增值的理由通常都是因为公司的业绩良好,公司赚了钱把它留在公司里,股票自然就会增值了。

股价上升却是指它的价钱往上升了,股价上升是可以不讲理由的,有时一个利好消息就可以使股价往上冲了。

只有会增值的股票才是真正的“开番”工具。致富靠的就是开番,所以想要致富就要买这种会慢慢增值的好股。所以我们一定要在买进时先做好功课,非赚钱的好股不买!

不容否认,通过投机在短期内买卖股票赚取差价也是可以令资本“开番”的,但是利用这种方法来“开番”却不是致富的方法。为什么?

因为这样做就等于是在赌博,没有人可以通过赌博来致富的。

所以,赌博赢来的“开番”只能算是暂时的“开番”而已。

虽然理论上赌博也是可以“开番”的。

例如:连赢十手,就等于连开十番。一千的本钱,连开十番就变成了一百万。

但是,可有人如此这样的致富呢?用投机的方法买卖股票赚取差价,可以加番也可以减番。就好像赌博一样有赚有赔,结果也是不能令人致富的。

许多投资者都抱这样的思想:买股票只准备抱短期,而买产业就准备抱长期。

短期就是投机,长期就是投资。

投机就是赌博,十赌九输,所以玩股票的人,输的人居多。投资就会增值,十拿九稳,所以买产业的人,嬴的人居多。

就是这个原因,通过股票来致富的人就占少数,而通过产业致富的人就占多数。

那么产业的回酬是否就比股票来得好呢?

这又不见得。产业的回酬虽然很稳定,但是却比不上一些优质股。

有许多优质股可以在三年内就开一番,但是产业却很少能做到这一点。

其实股票的回酬是比产业来得好,只是投资人的心态不同才造成这个偏差。只要改变思想,谢绝投机,只用投资的角度来买股,股票的回酬肯定是比产业来得好。

股神华伦巴菲特从来都不投资产业,他只投资股票,他一定有他的理由;股票的回酬比产业来得高就是他的理由!

“犯错误并没有什么好羞耻的,只有知错不改才是耻辱。”

如果操作过量,即使对市场判断正确,仍会一败涂地。

低估期间, 买对, 不买也是对, 卖是错的。

冷眼(冯时能)投资概念
“买股票就是买公司的股份,买股份就是与陌生人合股做生意”。
合股做生意,则公司股份的业绩高于一切,而股票的价值决定于盈利。
价值是本,价格是末,故公司比股市重要百倍。
