The past 12 months or so have seen a record number of floats on the sharemarket.
With about $14 billion worth of initial public offerings over the past year, it is the biggest year since the GFC for bringing companies to market.
In the main, investors have been well rewarded. Of the bigger listings, catering and cleaning business Spotless Group, the credit reporting business Veda Group, Genworth Mortgage Insurance Australia and Healthscope, the hospital, medical centre and pathology operator, have share prices trading significantly above their float prices.

Australia’s top 10 stocks by market capitalisation – BHP Billiton (BHP), Commonwealth Bank (CBA), Rio Tinto (RIO), Westpac (WBC), ANZ, NAB, Telstra (TLS), Wesfarmers (WES), Woolworths (WOW) and CSL – are a solid group of companies that have, on balance, delivered strong returns for shareholders.
Are they positioned to continue delivering growth or do their global counterparts represent more attractive opportunities? We went inside Skaffold Global to find out.
Also consider this: you won’t find any global tech companies in the ASX 10. Pharmaceuticals, big oil and household products also fail to feature in our local market. To gain exposure to these global industries, you must expand your universe to the US and Europe.

When is the best time to buy shares? Do you insist on a 20% safety margin across the board? Maybe you’re prepared to pay a little above today’s value because you believe the future value of the business is likely to be materially higher. If you find a great business, and are planning to remain an owner for five years or more, will paying an extra 5 or 10 per cent today really matter if your timeframe as an investor in the business is over 5 or 10 years?
Whatever your approach, be consistent. It’s when investors deviate from their investment approach that trouble can occur. Also remember that you won’t make money on every trade. When it comes to investing, not losing money is just as important as picking the winners.
