(B)(N) LNVGY Lenovo Group Limited ADR

The Verge Moto X Permanently $399 with no contract

Deal Book. Lenovo is on a roll and bought IBM’s x86 server business for $2.3 billion last week (Forbes, January 23, 2014, Lenovo Buying IBM Server Business For $2.3 Billion) and is buying Google’s Motorola Unit this week (Reuters, January 29, 2014, Lenovo nears $3 billion deal to buy Google’s Motorola unit). And investors have boosted the stock from $18 to $20 last year to the current $27 and well above the price of risk at $24 and rising. Please see Exhibit 3 below.

But Lenovo is also rolling with elite company and it’s possible – even probable – that the “big techs” have seen the future and are shedding some old skins and lines of business to bring forward a new decade of technological change and magic far removed from the more pedestrian 80’s and 90’s.

Investors are nervous and only understand their good fortune in Newtonian (17th century) terms (The Street, January 24, 2014, What Goes Up…Must Come Down) but are still willing to play and have bid up the “big techs” by 5% and $100 billion so far this year. Please see Exhibit 1 below.

The “big techs” earned $150 billion last year and returned $40 billion or 26% to the shareholders for an aggregate dividend yield of 1.7%.

Should they earn less this year because the demand for copper and gold is low? Or because the government can pay its debts from a burgeoning tax base? Or because there might be 8 billion people on the planet in a few years?

We don’t know but we’re ready to roll too and not fall off the edge, so to speak. Of the twelve “big techs”, ten are in the Perpetual Bond™ at the present time (excusing Cisco and Samsung for the moment) and our estimate of the downside risk in the portfolio is minus (9%) but we’re ready for that as a profit-taking and buying opportunity at lower prices. Please see Exhibit 2 below.
