When we borrow today for our wants today and be prepared to pay tomorrow we are requesting Uncle Tomorrow covers us today. Mark coined a fascinating term that I think I will share with you. We were discussing how, as younger people, we spent money on things we really didn’t need to use lent money – expecting the person of tomorrow to cover the things we needed today.

The problem is, of course, of tomorrow has their own wants and needs that the individual, and doesn’t want to pay for the desires of the individual of yesterday. Of course, that person of tomorrow – let’s call him Uncle Tomorrow – doesn’t have a choice in the matter.

If the individual of yesterday decided to borrow funds to buy a plane ski, then Uncle Tomorrow must pay for it, whether he desires to or not. 100,000 for a sociology level, tomorrow must pay for it – whether he wants to or not then Uncle. Is it it is easy to see, in retrospect, how this works, particularly when you become Uncle Tomorrow and are saddled with the debts of Mr. Yesterday.

You begin to realize that Mr. Yesterday was an idiot and bought plenty of stupid things that he really didn’t need but instead needed and expected Uncle Tomorrow to pay the expenses. As you may imagine Uncle Tomorrow is quite pissed. I mentioned this before in my own blog. Particularly, of yesterday and the individual of tomorrow how exactly we tend to disassociate ourselves from the individual. We tend to see ourselves as discreet entities in time and maybe there is certainly some kind of metaphysical basis for this.

Maybe we only exist in discrete moments and not as a continuum. All I can say is, tomorrow as an Uncle, I am happy that the individual of last night reserve just a little money for me personally when he did. Because although he squandered a shitload of cash on stupid idiotic things, he did manage to put some cash into investments, tomorrow thinking about his good old Uncle.

It is also about understanding the business model, the problem, and everything that are at stake. When the bond prices finally reacted and dropped to 50c, it was supposed to be a big caution. Yet I failed to do more detailed due diligence. It wasn’t my priority until everything blew up.

Hence there’s a final lesson here from Hyflux. Investing is a full-time job. If you want to make money, you have to devote the right commitment. But in today’s world, where got time? We’ve our day jobs, family, kids, friends, community, and social activities. It’s just so hard.

This is so even when I am interested in investing. Imagine somebody who is not passionate but desires to invest because he or she believes it’s good aggressive income, easy money. So in order to be able to make investments and sleep well, we can only just choose the best businesses because we don’t have time for you to monitor any deterioration. With that said, good businesses also get disrupted and we have to stick to the top of things when we see these taking place (Singtel, which I have, involves brain). If we choose the best businesses, people that have the strongest financial moats which we’d discussed before, generating strong free cash flows at acceptable valuations, our capital would have more safety then. 2. Map out all the situations and probabilities and keep monitoring them.

And having shown resilience until lately, rubbish bonds (HYG) dropped 1.1% within the last two weeks. Financial conditions have now started to meaningfully tighten up at the “Core.” I believe de-risking/de-leveraging dynamics have begun to unfold throughout U.S. Credit. You will find signs of tightening up liquidity conditions in securitized Credit also. These are important developments.

As an industry, hedge money was already attempting for performance before the recent bout of “Risk Off.” Much money have seen 2018 gains quickly morph into deficits. There is currently the distinct threat of escalating losses into year-end spurring significant industry outflows. This powerful elevates the chances of a destabilizing de-risking/deleveraging powerful.
